    Ed Koch was a great believer in Gun control among other things, right to the end....and yes, it gives me a lot of pleasure.

    Now when Rudy Giuliani , another Gun Control fan and the author of "Virginians should be proud to take New York's Garbage", heads west...I'm gonna dance a jig!

    If Mr Nap derives great pleasure from Mayor Koch's death and is going to dance a jig when Mayor Guiliani dies, everyone had better cover their eyes when Mayor Bloomberg croaks because I fear he's going to celebrate by running naked along Monument Ave.

    On second thoughts, that's too much effort isn't it Peter? He's gonna walk instead !!!

    What would worry me is that he would probably post pictures of the event.

    Despite their view on guns, if anyone had grown up in NY (as I had), you would understand what great Mayors both of them really were. I have a Guiliani autographed baseball on my desk and it was a pleasure meeting him last year.

    I will be right next to him celebrating. And I grew up in NY. Nobody is perfect.

    I'm told that Lori Haas can be a pleasant and articulate person too.

    Still not going to allow any of my grand kids near her oven and I'd set her broom on fire in a heartbeat.

    That's still no reason to celebrate someone's death.

    Never said I was celebrating the demise of anyone - others are entitled to their opinions.

    IMO - both are based on the opposition to OC and RKBA generally of those departed. Would you not "celebrate" the death/demise of Lucifer?

    What these user/members are expressing is the welcoming of the absence from the field of these anti self-defense proponents.

    We all must remember the political environment Koch and Rudi grew up in. They are New Yorkers and as such are predisposed to be anti-gun which is not bad per se. But translating their anti-gun stance to anti-liberty policy and law.....well, I ain't gunna lose any sleep over Koch and I will not lose any sleep when Rudi "moves on" either.

    That is funny right there. Ed Koch was a self proclaimed socialist, no tears shed from me.

    Agreed the old bat will never die, I refuse to wish the best to my enemy's who threaten my freedoms. I only wish them the worst karma to come back on them.

    Ragnar Redbeard Excerpt from: Might Is right

    ‘Love your enemies and do good to them that hate you and despite fully use you,’ is the despicable philosophy of the spaniel that rolls upon its back, when kicked. Obey it, O! reader, and you and all your posterity to the tenth generation shall be irretrievably and literally damned. They shall be hewers of wood, and carriers of water, degenerates, Gibeonites. But hate your enemies with a whole heart, and if a man smite you on one cheek, smash him down; smite him hip and thigh, for self-preservation is the highest law.

    Give blow for blow, scorn for scorn, doom for doom, with compound interest liberally added thereunto. Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, aye four-fold, a hundredfold. Make yourself a Terror to your adversary and when he goeth his way, he will possess much additional wisdom to ruminate over. Thus shall you make yourself respected in all the walks of life, and your spirit — your IMMORTAL spirit — shall live, not in an intangible paradise, but in the brains and thews of your aggressive and unconquerable sons. After all, the true proof of manhood is a splendid progeny; and it is a scientific axiom that the timid animal transmits timidity to its descendents.

    As a former NYC with current ties to the NYC and the state a big 1+.
    Now that my grandmother is died I'll never sent foot in NYC again if I can help it. My father will have to drive/fly to free america to see his grand kids from now on.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Ed Koch Passes

    What's lyric from Three Dog Night? "Celebrate! Celebrate! Dance to the music!"


    Then, there's the Queen lyric, "And, another one gone, another one gone. Another one bites the dust."

    He wasn't all bad, though--he did get that cameo right in First Wives Club.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
