NRA: Gun Ownership Soars, Murder Rate Plummets

"In its efforts to reframe the 'debate' over civilian disarmament, the NRA-ILA’s gone a little math crazy. Make the jump for a statistical analysis arguing—again, still—that 'more guns = less crime.' For those of you who’d rather wonder why Tiger Woods would cheat on Elin Nordgren ... I’ll say this about that: the firearm homicide rate decline is even more staggering when you consider that hundreds of thousands of armed Americans are engaged in the illegal drug trade. If you pulled them out of the picture, as the police do in pro-gun control enclaves, you’ll understand why most Americans didn’t give a rat’s ass about 'gun violence' until a madman murdered 20 white school kids in a suburban enclave. Just sayin’ . . ." ...

But in a strange twist, some of those same pundits have tried to shift the target from guns to violent movies and Video Games — in the process, undermining their arguments against gun control."

... "What makes Halo Point — that is to say Civil Defense — ammo different is that this stuff is hot. Their .40 S&W load uses a 60-grain bullet that promises velocities over 2,000 feet per second; rifle speeds from a handgun."

"At the speeds they travel, Civil Defense bullets don’t exactly stabilize. They’re not terrifically accurate, although Liberty Ammunition claims two-inch groups are possible at 25 yards ..."

"So they’re not entirely without compromises. How do they perform inside 25 yards, then, is the question. Pocket Guns & Gear put a few rounds under the glass to see if they deliver on penetration and energy transfer."

Setting up and checking my targets are some of those range-day time sucks that A) aren’t fun, and B) don’t increase my proficiency one iota. Grizzly Targets invited us to test this beefy 3/8″ self-resetting target made of AR500 steel. As soon as we started shooting at it, I realized that a target like this has the potential to completely transform the way I spend my range time. Durability is everything in a steel target, so we didn’t pull any punches. We tested this thing much harder than any safety guidelines — or common sense — would dictate . . ." ...

"Again, I feel obliged to point out that Americans have a Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. There’s only one way to remove that right legally: ditch or amend the Second Amendment. Meanwhile, here’s some new research from the Mayors Against Illegals Guns’ agitprop front group demandaplan.org: 'Solid majorities of Americans, including gun owners, also support a ban on assault weapons. ... Findings like these demonstrate strong and decisive support for common sense gun violence prevention legislation that would protect both the safety and rights of all Americans.' No to both, methinks.

"With the ongoing debate about gun control legislation in Congress and New York State, it is important to take a closer look at the two recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions interpreting the 2nd Amendment, so that we can establish whether the legislation would be constitutional. This post is not seeking a debate on individual viewpoints on gun control. I only endeavor to remind all sides of this debate that the two recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions interpreting the 2nd Amendment are historically important, and no legislative body should pass any gun control laws prior to ensuring they will pass constitutional muster." ...
