Overnight Open Thread (30 May 2015)

Behold the genius of House Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.). House bill would require gun owners to have liability insurance.

"We require insurance to own a car, but no such requirement exists for guns," Maloney said in a statement. "The results are clear: car fatalities have declined by 25 percent in the last decade, but gun fatalities continue to rise."

Liability insurance had nothing to do with a decrease in car fatalities and her statement that by having to carry liability insurance, it motivates drivers to be better is BS. Fear of dying in a car crash or shooting your own foot is what motivates safe behavior.

Criminals won't give a rats ass about insurance just like how uninsured drivers don't. Does she really think an insurance requirement would've stopped ANY of the shootings that have made the news?? I'm sure the Aurora, CO movie theater shooter is cursing in his cell right now wishing he had liability insurance.

Rising Crime Rates

It's not just Baltimore that is seeing a rise in crime. This is what happens when folks in positions of power appease the mob.

And it's not just Baltimore. Cops all over the country have seen the six Baltimore police officers served up to appease the mob, and they know it could happen to them. The results are as predictable as they are tragic. In New York City murders are up 12 percent from a year ago as officers continue their reticence at conducting the type of proactive police work that keeps violent crime in check. In Los Angeles, homicides are down by 10 percent this year, though this is more of a testament to the skill of paramedics and medical personnel than it is to good police work. Shootings in the city are up by 23 percent and other violent crime is up by 25 percent.

Sniper Threat

Hmmm. Do we have a new D.C. type sniper on the loose in northern Colorado? Fatal shooting of cyclist linked to shooting of woman driving on I-25.

Leaders in Education

Yup, it is hard to fire a teacher. Teacher who 'lost' two 4-year olds can't be fired. And then there is that diversity officer who said "kill all white men". She gets to keep her job.

In other news, a teacher has been suspended for supposedly sharing with her student before and after pics of her boobjob.
