Second Amendment Foundation: NY Gun Control Didn’t Stop Buffalo Supermarket Massacre



Gun control doesn’t work. The proof is in the crime-scene tape.

A few days ago, some skinful of slime committed a terrible crime–a racially motivated mass murder–in a Buffalo, N.Y. supermarket. In keeping with Guns & Gadgets Daily tradition, we will not name the shooter, nor give his vile thoughts an iota of digital ink. We’ve decided to refer to him exclusively as “Blivet,” which is a military term describing what happens when you put 10 pounds of shit in a 5-pound bag. Although the sole responsibility for what happened last week lies with Blivet, our nation’s president didn’t even wait for the crime-scene tape to come down before he blamed the Second Amendment instead. Today, the Citizens Committee to Keep and Bear Arms has a few choice words on the subject …


Buffalo Shooting Shows Need for CCW Reform in New York

While anti-gun politicians exploit the mass shooting at a Buffalo, New York supermarket to demand stricter gun laws, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said such tragedies might be averted or stopped if New York state law allowed more people to exercise their right to carry.

“New York politicians want tougher gun laws in a state that already has some of the toughest laws in the country,” CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb observed. “Yet those laws did not prevent what happened Saturday, and never will. New York’s current gun control laws make it difficult to impossible for law-abiding citizens of all races to obtain carry permits. Apparently the shooter staked out this particular market, because he knew there would be no resistance to what is a despicable hate crime.

“To suggest stricter anti-gun-rights laws are the answer to such an evil act is absurd,” he continued. “Instead of making it possible and affordable for average citizens to obtain carry permits for personal protection, New York authorities have stubbornly maintained a permit system that reeks of political favoritism, demagoguery and elitism. It is no wonder this system is now facing a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that we hope will overturn the current law.

“Every citizen, regardless of ethnicity or economic condition, deserves better than they’ve gotten from lawmakers in Albany for generations,” Gottlieb stated. “The victims in Buffalo had no chance at all. It is deplorable that the only idea from Gov. Kathy Hochul is to ask for even more restrictions on New York gun owners, and to suggest more gun control on a national scale. That’s not a plan, it’s the perpetuation of an already failed strategy disguised as a plan, and anyone with an ounce of common sense knows it.

“Now Joe Biden has rushed to Buffalo to tell people ‘we can keep assault weapons off the street’,” he noted. “The suspect passed a background check and the rifle was purchased legally, but it was altered illegally after the sale. Instead of blaming guns, maybe Biden can explain how all of the warning signs about this suspect were apparently ignored. The time has come for a new, and significantly different strategy.

“In the past,” Gottlieb said, “Biden has advocated bans on semi-auto rifles and 9mm pistols. That’s also not a solution because it attaches blame to guns instead of the people who misuse them. At a time when we need to bring Americans together against these unspeakable crimes, Biden and his fellow Democrats always find a way to divide us over guns. This is a time for sound judgment, not sound bites. It’s too bad anti-gun Democrats have chosen to not be the adults in the room.

“Half of the states have adopted permitless carry to make it possible for citizens like the ones murdered in Buffalo to fight back,” he added. “It never occurs to politicians such as Hochul or Biden that they have been wrong on gun rights all along. But they have been disastrously wrong, and the proof is the police tape around the Tops supermarket in Buffalo.”

    As most people know, or should know, the actual purpose of so-called “gun control” has NEVER been about stopping crime, saving lives or for the children. It’s one and 0NLY purpose is to disarm law-abiding American Citizens for easier control. That is all.

    Look no further then Chicago and Detroit to find the answer to that question . They have the tuffest gun control laws and the highest murder rate in the country. Don’t forget its black on black crimes for most part. Guess as long as it’s blacks it doesn’t matter cause they defended the police and can’t stop the crimes and killings . Guessing the social workers with their clipboards didn’t get the memo yet

    I grow weary of hearing or reading the phrases “prior contact with law enforcement” and “is or was under psychiatric care”. If you don’t believe me google them all and get mad at the gun control dweebs.

    First, bring back the death penalty for murder. Second, make it fast. Third, DO NOT publicize the people that do this.

    How many of these idiots would commit these crimes if they knw they would not be famous?

    The man that commited the murders should be tried this week, the trial should not take more than a day, and he should be executed in 10 days. And make it so his name is wiped from the face of the earth…

    Too many people have a simple and basic misunderstanding about “gun control.” “Gun control” is not now, and has never been, about crime or criminals. Quite frankly, the Left couldn’t give a rat’s behind about crime or criminals. Gun control is, and has always been, about disarming the citizenry so they cannot represent a threat to the government once the Left establishes the dictatorship they have been working toward for well more than half a century and, thanks to the stolen elections of November 2020 and January 2021, are now in the process of consolidating. The key word in the term “gun control” is not “gun” – it is “control.” A quick study of basic world history will show that one of the first actions taken by every Communist government upon their takeover was to go to all of the local police stations, get the lists of gun owners, and then go door to door and disarm everyone. That is why the Communists – er, I mean the Democrats – want a national gun registry. Is there really anyone at this point in time who still does not understand this?

    And by the way, it is way beyond disingenuous that the Left always speaks of “we need gun control” as if there were currently no laws concerning firearms. There are now more than 24,000 gun control laws in effect at the federal, state, and local levels in this nation. Every conceivable aspect of firearm purchase, ownership, and use is covered dozens of times over. Firearms are by far the single most regulated and restricted consumer product in this nation. The only ones who are impacted by all these laws, however, are the law-abiding, which of course is the goal. Criminals very rarely (check the FBI data on this) even attempt to obtain firearms through legal channels, and are thus unaffected by “gun control.” As I stated above, “gun control” has nothing to do with crime or criminals.

      I make more then 12,000DLR a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…….. Visit Work At Home

    MURDER has been against the law in every civilization since like forever. No law has prevented murders regardless of the tool/weapon used. End of the discussion.

    “If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of criminal acts reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying – that they must sweep under the rug the southern attempts at gun control in the 1870-1910 period, the northeastern attempts in the 1920-1939 period, the attempts at both Federal and State levels in 1965-1976 – establishes the repeated, complete and inevitable failure of gun laws to control serious crime.”—Orrin Hatch(R.I.P.)

    ‘Gun-control’ to stop crime is a myth, pushed by the Left.

    Last night, I listened to a virtual “town hall” meeting held by one California’s most pho-gun control legislatures: Senator Min. He had 5 Brady advocates with him. Subject: “Crime Guns”, which suggest the guns are the guilty parties and not the criminals. They talked about “ghost guns”, “gun show loopholes”, lax enforcement by ATF for gun store violations (straw man, poor or non-existent record keeping, gun thefts) to “smart gun” technology. When it came to the issue of mental health, the panel agreed there should be a requirement for a gun owner to undergo a psychiatric interview every couple of years.
    I sent in 6 comments/questions to the panel, but I guess “they ran out of time” and couldn’t get to them because they spent the last 5 minutes congratulating each other.
    The Wall St. Journal reported today that the DOJ said the vast majority of guns stolen from individuals are in home and car burglaries; more than the 45,000+ stolen/lost by licensed gun dealers between 2016 & 2020.

    Good article. When the good sense of our Founding Fathers in putting the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution is followed instead of the absurd gun control laws and citizens are allowed “Constitutional Carry”, the problem will be greatly reduced.

    Everytime there’s a tragedy like this, the Liberal Loony Left Anti-Gun crowd screams for more Gun Control. New York, like Californication, has more Gun Laws than most of the lower 48 States, and they didn’t prevent a damn thing.
    This Nutjob should have been flagged in the NICS system as a prohibited person due to his Mental Illness. Why wasn’t he? Who Screwed the Pooch on this? Just like Parkland and many other shootings, the Authorities dropped the ball, in failing to perform the one action that might have prevented this and so many other tragedies.
