Projection: A Lesson in Gun Control Advocate Mentality
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"'If I only had a gun...' It's a phrase, common amongst Gun Rights advocates and Gun Control advocates alike, typically preceding a confessed desire to use the weapon. In the case of the former, with Gun Rights advocates, it is verbal proclamation of the will to use that weapon in order to change a particular outcome. In the case of the latter there appears to be little overall difference. The focus, or application, of a firearm is to change the direction of a dispute through lethal force. The point at which the two listed groups diverge is where they begin to list their intentions." ...

"Legitimate gun owners, unlike criminals, are shackled by law to prevent them from perpetuating a crime."

"There are laws that restrict purchase, possession, or carrying of a defensive weapon. There are Goldilocks Gun Laws that restrict size or features of a gun:"

"This gun is too big.
This gun is too small.
This gun is too accurate.
This gun is too evil looking.
This gun is the wrong color.
This gun's approval has expired."

Proposed 'terror gap' laws: Not only unconstitutional, but laughably ineffective

"Yesterday, we discussed the dire threat to freedom posed by proposed laws granting the Attorney General the power of unilaterally denying--to anyone he wishes--the Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms. Today, we'll look at how useless such laws would be, quite apart from their blatant unconstitutionality."

"The alleged perpetrator of the attempt to bomb Times Square, for example, has been breathlessly reported to have been in possession of an inexpensive 9mm carbine." ...

"Shahzad didn't use the gun ... He was also not on any terrorist 'watch' list at the time of the gun purchase, so the proposed law would have made exactly zero difference ..." ...
 

Guns on Campus: The ubiquitous armed citizen, Part II
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"On the question of guns on campus, it is long past timed for trustees to realize that, in time of violence, no one can take your place as the first line of defense. But as long as adults are barred from being their own first line of defense, gun control will succeed in its hidden purpose. Gun Control is the advance force for all abusive programs of dependency in the United States. Without gun control first, citizens would sense and utilize their independence such that officials would never be taken seriously for such absurd programs we see everywhere. If there were less crime, Americans would always be taken more seriously." ...

"When Ohio's original legislation allowing law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed handgun passed in 2004, there were dire predictions by the anti-gun crowd that there would be shootouts in the streets or worse."

"Fast forward six years, and guess what? None of it happened."

"How could the anti-gun crowd have been so wrong? The answer is very simple and yet very important."

"The answer is that concealed carry licensees are law-abiding citizens, and law-abiding citizens don't commit crimes. Criminals commit crimes! I know that this shouldn't be earth-shattering news to anyone, but it is to the anti-gun crowd." ...

"Whew! Recently got back from three and a half weeks on the road. Court stuff, teaching stuff, and the occasional pistol match thrown in, for several thousand miles."

"Significant Other and I had seven handguns with us, six of them 'plastic' 9mm semiautomatics. I needed a Glock 19 as an exemplar for one of the shooting cases, in the event that we needed to do any testing/replication demonstrations once trial was underway. That didn't turn out to be necessary, but the little 16-shooter did double duty as a regular concealed carry gun for much of the trip, which encompassed several states." ...

"The XM-25 Individual Airburst Weapon is the kind of gun that you see in movies such as Fifth Element or Judge Dredd, but never expect to be real. Well, it certainly is real, and it's now ready to be tested in combat."

"The gun fires a 25-millimeter 'smart round' that can be detonated at pre-programmed distance, spreading shrapnel in all directions. It uses a rangefinder to figure out how far away a target is, and the operator can manually adjust when the bullet detonates to suit different situations ..."

"Check out the video below to hear an officer at the Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland lay down a scenario in which the XM-25 could be a real game changer."

"Re 'Congress, Up in Arms,' by Gail Collins (column, May 6):"

"Once again, Congress is being intimidated by the political power of gun advocates across the country. This bloc of people believes that giving any ground to gun control is a slippery slope that may jeopardize their Second Amendment rights." ...

"Gun advocates had better be reasonable and responsive about exceptions to gun ownership. They should cooperate and endorse proposals that make us safer even if these measures take guns out of the hands of certain people (deemed to be a threat). The alternative could lead to a backlash and an eventual assault on the Second Amendment."

Submitter's Note: Just a little reminder Sally, us 'gun nuts' are the ones with the guns. And some of us won't give up without a fight. Just a thought.

"Colorado State University recently decided to repeal a ban prohibiting concealed guns on university property. ... University officials cited fear of a lawsuit as the basis for repealing the ban. Colorado State made the correct decision in February and should not have reversed it."

"When individuals are allowed to possess guns in any setting, there is potential for an accident. To hold a gun on campus is to endanger everyone in the vicinity of its owner. People generally fear the chance of gun use in general, and thus, people who bring guns on campus increase the fear of fellow students and professors. Students might have a difficult time learning if they are aware that someone in the classroom possesses a gun." ...

"Judging by the events of the past week, it's a good thing for billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that he uses tax payer funds to pay others to carry guns for his protection. If he carried a gun himself, he'd constantly be shooting himself in the foot."

"Take for example Bloomberg's reaction when news that a car bomb had been activated, but failed to detonate in the middle of Times Square. The part-time Republican, who heads the gun control front group run Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), quickly ran to the CBS Evening News and speculated before a national audience that the bomb could have been placed by 'somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something.'" ...

"First, ... suspected terrorist activity is not itself a sufficient reason under current law to prevent them from buying guns from licensed dealers (the 'terror gap').

It does not have any effect on the areas under federal control. Essentially, SB 291 would bring Georgia's law into line with 40 other states on this issue." ...

"The Georgia Common Sense Lawful Carry Act (Senate Bill 308), passed by the General Assembly and awaiting Gov. Sonny Perdue’s signature, is being hailed by gun enthusiasts as a 'victory for law abiding citizens.'"

"Past governments of the country were noted a number of times for ordering the deposition of all legally owned firearms with the police or the offices of the district commissioners (DCs) in their bids to control the crime rate. But every time such orders were issued, the same created a great deal of hassle and loss to the legal wielders of firearms. For, it was a short-sighted view in the first place that firearms owners with valid licenses had descended to the level of gangsters to use their weapons for commiting crimes."

"This is not to say that all persons who obtained licenses for firearms had clean backgrounds ... Nonetheless, one would not be wrong in assuming that most of the ones with legal firearms are law abiding citizens. ..." ...
