... "What this means is, top LA law enforcement knows perfectly well that savage beasts are preying on peaceable citizens, they are unable to stop it from happening, they know what will give those being attacked a fighting chance, and they deny them that option under force of state arms. Through their mandates, they confirm that they would rather see a 63-year-old woman mauled to death, ripped apart in the most horrible, agonizing and terrifying way conceivable, than simply have the choice to the means of defense." ...

Gun Control 2013: Guns and Crime is a False Correlation

... "As fellow PolicyMic pundit David Susman pointed out recently in one of his articles, the lack of expertise on the subject of firearms amongst the “gun control” crowd is alarming. This is not necessarily a major issue in itself— a person who knows very little about something may indeed have valid concerns about the safety and efficacy of firearms and concealed-carry laws, for instance. But it is another thing entirely when regular people, along with pundits and politicians, spread outright lies to advance their pet groups' agendas." ...

"The anti-gun proponents frequently use the phrase 'commonsense gun control' or 'commonsense gun safety' when nothing could be farther from the actual truth."

"Background checks prior to the sale of any firearm became commonplace after the Clinton 'assault weapons ban' in 1998, except for the very few firearms sold via private sales. A private sale of a firearm is like selling a used baseball bat across the back fence. Can the baseball bat be used to commit a crime? Sure. Does the government need to restrict such a sale? I (and many others) don’t think so." ...

This would cause the next round to exit the barrel at a different angel making the round inaccurate." ...

"The gun lobby has boiled down their argument to 'the only thing standing between a bad guy with a gun and violence is a good guy with a gun.' Make no mistake; they have self appointed themselves as the 'good guys.' And while those of us who stand for a society that embraces gun responsibility may not be 'bad guys with guns,' the implication is that we are enablers of 'bad guys' and not an alternative approach to their gun-centric solutions for addressing violence."

"In fact the gun proponents’ solution to violence is the threat of violence and by extension both returned and pre-emptive violence. ..." ...

Submitter's Note: First what Wayne actually said was "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
Second, whatinthehell is "pre-emptive violence"? Is what the antis are calling self-defense nowadays? Otherwise it sounds like assault with a deadly weapon to me.

"Since the Sandy Hook shootings, the first major push for tighter gun controls in years has swept the nation. Numerous polls have shown significant majorities in favor of stricter background checks for gun purchases. Unfortunately, these efforts have sparked a backlash from pro-gun advocates, resulting in the defeat of a Senate bill that would expand background checks and close existing loopholes in current law. While the gun lobby claims they are standing up for their Second Amendment rights, they actually are trampling the rights of others."

"We have been told that the only way to stop a 'bad guy' with a gun is a 'good guy' with a gun. But what if it's neither?"

"What if the person behind the gun is a 4-year-old boy, strong enough to pull the trigger but far too young to understand the potenial consequences?"

"Those are the questions that day care providers in Hallowell had to answer late last year when a preschooler showed up with a loaded handgun in his backpack." ...

"But the incident also points to a neglected aspect of the gun violence debate: the social cost of having such a huge number of guns, multiplying the unintentional damage they can cause." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: According to the CDC, between 2001 and 2010 there were an average of 674 accidental shooting deaths annually. To put that accident rate in perspective, during that same time there were 3,479 drownings annually, 5,858 accidental suffocation deaths, 20,524 fatal falls, 24,894 accidental poisonings annually. Other sources show between 225,000 and 750,000+ iatrogenic (doctor induced) deaths annually.

Female 'zombie' gun target widely misses the mark

"Well, Zombie Industries' 'The Ex' female mannequin target, which in no way resembled a zombie and bled when shooters hit it, had an improbable run. But the feeble-minded fun is over. The company said Thursday it will discontinue the target, and it offered an apology that had about as much sincerity as the company's target had zombie features." ...

"In the recording ... someone says the word 'confiscate' several times after the Senate Budget Committee hearing ends. The voice is faint and the person’s identity is unknown. The recording ... alleges it was a senator saying, 'We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.'"

American citizens can buy a box-fresh revolver for under $200. For less than a Benjamin you can buy a 'pre-owned' pistol. It won’t be pretty but it’ll be a lot more reliable, accurate and durable than anything you can crank out on a $10k 3D printer. That’s us sorted. Meanwhile, in China, the fate of a billion-and-a-half people may well depend on what the United States government does about one Cody Wilson. Which is why they’ve shut him down.

"Back when Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed started up their DefCad downloads, they made a promise. Cody looked square in the camera and promised that there would be no takedowns. Ever. ... But when the rubber actually met the road and Cody was faced with the full might of the U.S. government if he didn’t comply with a takedown request, they folded. They pulled the files, like every other depository has before them. On the surface, it seems like DefDist isn’t living up to its promises. But was that really a lack of personal convictions and flinching when the moment of truth arrived? Or is Defense Distributed simply biding its time until they’re in a more sustainable position to thumb their nose at the government? . . ." ...
