Now Obama Debuts Pledge to Make Guns 'Childproof'
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Surprising very few of us, we see that once in office, Obama is more open about his gun control efforts at WhiteHouse.gov:"

"... Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent." ...

Today is my son Matthew's 30th birthday. . .

I almost lost Matt right there at the beginning. It was a packed house that night in Labor & Delivery at University Hospital in Columbus, Ohio -- the busiest night they had ever seen -- and the staffing standards back then would get a hospital shut down and sued today. Back then, the fetal monitors . . .involved taking a lead with a sharp threaded point and screwing it into the baby's scalp.

As awful as that sounds it saved his young life. We were ignored by the unbelievably overwhelmed staff. . . I was given the briefest of briefings, told what to watch for, and left alone. "Call us if something doesn't look right," the nurse said, and disappeared.

"One of the best reasons for the armed citizen is, of course, personal self-defense, but the very best reason for the armed citizenry is that when whole communities are armed – and known to be armed – there is a profound futility, then, in government programs attempting to have some agency take your place. For decades, for generations, no agency has been better than the armed citizen. For generations, our word was enough to discourage silly programs. Today, our word is ignored."

"... Personally, my belief is that such debates might serve well to show off one's statistical chops, but miss the real point."

"'The real point,' as I see it, is that those private citizens who choose to carry a defensive firearm do not do so with the objective of 'fighting crime,' but instead have the much more limited aim of defending themselves and their loved ones ..." ...

"Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president on Tuesday under tight security. He rode to the Capitol in an armored Cadillac limo, spoke behind a protective glass shield, and wore 'bullet-resistant clothing.' Is that the same thing as a bulletproof vest?"

"Not quite. The vests familiar from cop shows and news footage of SWAT teams are manufactured to be maximally effective with no consideration for how they might look under a dress shirt. It's unclear what brand of body armor Obama sported at the inauguration, but several companies produce discreet, thinner vests that can be worn underneath clothing, inserted into an outer layer (like a coat) or woven into a shirt. ..." ...

"David Olofson is a U.S. Army veteran and Wisconsin resident who loaned his 20-year old AR-15 rifle to a friend who then took it to a shooting range. While at the range, the rifle malfunctioned by emitting two multi-round bursts before jamming. Someone at the range heard the shots and, fearing it might be a fully automatic machine gun, notified local law enforcement." ...

"A recent special from the National Geographic Channel titled 'Guns in America' has become the latest catalyst in the debate over what responsible journalism means when it comes to one of America's most contentious issues."

"... The show's intended mission was to be an unbiased exploration of 'the gun culture in America, from a police officer to a young mother.'"

"No sooner had the program ended than gun right's advocates were up in arms over the statistics used in the show and what they saw as a decidedly anti-gun slant." ...

"However, many gun control organizations support the controversial statistics cited in the program ... backing up the program's claim that eight young people a day are killed by a firearm in the United States." ...

No charges will be filed against the Omaha shop owner who shot and killed two people in his business Tuesday night because he fired in self-defense, said Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine.

Kleine said Andre McKesson, the owner of Midwest Grillz and Jewelry at 62nd Street and Ames Avenue, fired after 14 or 15 shots.

Kleine said police told him McKesson got into an argument with Willie Wakefield, 29, and Marcel Davis, 16. At one point, Wakefield allegedly fired two shots in the direction of McKennon.

Kleine said McKesson returned fire, killing Davis and Wakefield and wounding Brandon Boyce, 22, who was outside waiting for Davis and Wakefield.

The investigation into the case is continuing.

"For most of this decade, the most contentious gun issue in Wisconsin has been that of concealed carry, or the legal sanction to carry a firearm in public in a hidden manner, either on the body or in close proximity."

"But this year that affair may take a backseat to a rapidly intensifying debate about the legality of open carry, or the act of publicly carrying a firearm in plain view."

"Ostensibly, Wisconsin is an open-carry state, meaning there is no law against a law-abiding citizen openly carrying a legal firearm. ..."

"Indeed ... one of the most-repeated arguments used by concealed-carry opponents is that it is not necessary because citizens can openly carry their guns."

"Then attorney general Jim Doyle used that precise argument before the state Supreme Court ..." ...

"No sane person wants innocent people victimized, maimed, or murdered, nor to see the perpetrators escape justice. This is true, whether the perpetrators use their hands or objects — like baseball bats, rocks, knives, vehicles, or a host of other readily available inanimate objects of endless variety — or a firearm. It is the intent and the will of the criminals, and not the inanimate objects they use, that are responsible for the criminal acts and the harm done to victims."

"The State Legislature is in full swing, and South Dakota Gun Owners is working on several issues that will impact gun owners."

"SDGO's top legislative priority is the Citizen Self-Defense bill. Colleges all across South Dakota are turning their campuses into so-called 'gun free' zones, where law-abiding adults can't defend themselves from armed criminals."

"Experience has proven that 'gun free' zones actually encourage violent crimes like horrific mass shootings. In fact, virtually every mass shooting in recent history has been committed in a 'gun free' zone."

"By depriving the law-abiding of any effectual means of self-defense, these college 'gun free' zones give criminals a monopoly on force." ...

Calling round one morning she advanced up the stairs towards me, drew a handgun out of her bag and gripped the trigger. Used to combat, I flew towards her and jerked up her arm. The bullet thudded into the plaster above and brought down the ceiling." ...
