Democratic N.Y. State Assemblyman David I. Weprin
Career politician and gun control supporter-supreme, New York State Assemblyman David I. Weprin, D, wants a seat at the United States Congress. If he wins in a special election scheduled for Sept. 13, New York’s 9th Congressional District will have elected the most anti-4th Amendment candidate running for public office – this year.
“I’ve been a strong advocate on gun control,” Weprin said. “There’s a lot of national bills that would really prevent illegal weapons,” reported the Aug. 2 Queens Chronicle.
Democrat pundits calling it a sure win for Weprin are ignoring the cries from Americans from inner cities to rural towns demanding a return to the Constitutional principles that make us free. Certainly not another New York City liberal who will, no doubt, subject Constitution loving Americans to more anti-gun, federal regulations.
In contrast, Bob Turner, Republican and Conservative party candidate in this race, is an independent-minded and sincere statesman who will, no doubt, have a positive effect on ending the uncontrolled and ‘unsustainable spending’ that the current United States Congress is drunk on.
“I’m not a politician. I’m a businessman and an ordinary citizen just like you. My platform is based on sound economic principles. I know we need more independent minded people in Congress who will stop the unsustainable spending and help create real jobs for Americans. There should be no place in our government for tax and spend career politicians like my opponent, David Weprin a lifetime rubberstamp for the Democratic agenda,” said Turner.
As an elected official, Weprin has a dismal record of harass and control.

New York City Council – District 23 (2002-2009): In 2003, Weprin proposed a law that would make it illegal to purchase or own a toy gun.
In a Fox News interview with Alan Comes, Weprin has this to say:
COLMES: Tell me about your bill. What do you want to do?
WEPRIN: I want to outlaw the sale of all toy guns in the city of New York.
COLMES: All right, they’re going to say it’s crazy, you can’t do it, you prevent people’s rights to go and buy a product.
WEPRIN: My response is just today, today after I was already scheduled to be on this show, there was a 17-year-old on 148th Street that shot dead by a New York City police officer because he had a toy gun that looked like a real gun.
COLMES: All right, so if they’re banned in New York…people buy them in New Jersey, people buy them in Connecticut, people buy them in elsewhere.
WEPRIN: Well, I’m hoping it will start a trend. And I think a lot of other municipalities will follow suit.
So, Mr. Weprin, the politician asking for a position in a Congress with too many anti-gun charlatans to begin with, wants the whole country to ban toy guns. Just imagine what he would like to do with real guns.
Furthermore, exploiting the death of a teenager to excuse his anti-firearm position, is a sad scare tactic on the back of an innocent victim, and inexcusable. The answer is clear.
