‘Statistics’ on shootings were flat wrong

"The glaring headline and accompanying graphic could not have been more alarming or more misleading ... CNN, no protectors of the Second Amendment, quickly took the information that Everytown.org is peddling to task, and discovered that only 15 of the alleged 74 incidents were 'situations similar to the violence in Oregon — a minor or adult actively shooting inside or near a school.' While I agree that even 15 is 15 too many, it should be pointed out that Everytown.org is not focused on ending gun violence, for no one sees it rallying around gang-infested cities with the most-stringent gun laws, such as Chicago, but rather it is trying to push an agenda of ending the Second Amendment right of law-abiding citizens." ...
 

VPC no longer trying to hide yearning for ban of all semi-automatics

... "Now, though, VPC is fully on board with a growing trend, noted here several times in the recent past, of not worrying about 'assault features,' and arguing for a ban of all semi-automatic, detachable magazine-fed firearms. So, as VPC executive director Josh Sugarmann told Salon, the problem is all such firearms, with or without 'assault features':"
"The first thing that needs to be done is we need to recognize that the common thread that runs through mass shootings and that really shapes gun violence as we know it today is a combination of semi-auto firearms, detachable ammunition magazines, and it ranges from high-capacity pistols to semi-automatic assault rifles." ...

"A recent map and article generated by Michael Bloomberg's Everytown astroturf organization began circulating around the Internet last week, claiming that 74 school massacres have taken place since Adam Lanza went on his rampage in 2012, murdering innocent children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School. 'How many more before our leaders pass common-sense laws to prevent gun violence and save lives?' the Bloombergian band of bullying neo-fascists shriek in their zeal to relieve you of your rights?" ...

Gun Control: Why Passing More Laws Will Not Stop Mass Shootings

"Passing more gun control laws will not prevent the tragic mass shootings and school shootings which have sadly become commonplace in America. The state of California and the city of Chicago have had some of the most stringent gun laws on the books for years, yet both continue to be home to mounting crime rates. Second Amendment supporters and the NRA are not to blame for the horrific loss of life we all read about on a nearly weekly basis. The cultural decline in the United States and a lack of adherence to mental health issues must shoulder the death toll burden." ...
 

Gun Control Industrial Complex? Not As Far-Fetched As You’d Think

"Last month I had a meeting with two friends of mine who practice criminal defense in our area and we happened upon a strange topic. What’s the benefit to convoluted gun laws? Is there a military industrial complex in the gun world? An iron triangle? People don’t understand these laws. Even some prosecutors barely understand them, but they get convictions. How is the public served by the giant ball of wax that is gun control? The fundamental basis of all gun control isn’t necessarily guns – it’s control. We all know that, but there’s a unique vicious circle that can ensnare even the most law abiding citizen . . ." ...

"I’m all for open carry. I enjoy seeing people carrying their guns in public; hell, I’ve done it. It was a pleasant experience, I met some fine people and a few curious folks received some friendly information and education. People driving by honked and waved. Over all, it was a resounding success and I would do it again. After some recent OC flub-ups, though, I got to thinking about what OCers are doing right, and what we’re doing wrong . . ." ...

"I’m a Beretta guy. I love their shotguns, pistols, the Beretta name, history, and legacy. The name Beretta seems to roll off the tongue like Maserati, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. It exudes a sense of quality and that sensuous Italian mystique that German, Austrian, Czech, and American firearms can never hope to achieve. Don’t get me wrong; I love all of my firearms, but my favorites are my Berettas. To be fair, I shoot extremely well with my GLOCK 22 and 27. But the GLOCK design is minimalism to an extreme. They’re one of the best examples of form following function in a modern pistol. But as reliable and competent as GLOCKs are, they leave me cold . . ." ...

"Don’t underestimate the value of a bad ammunition magazine. If you’ve been around guns for any amount of time, you’ve run into them. Whether you purchased a questionable no-name mag at a gun show or one came with your or your buddy’s firearm, we have all had the experience of a bad magazine. But instead of throwing them away, running them over with the truck or even blasting the holy crap out of them at the range, let me suggest another course of action, one that might even have you turning good functional magazines into the bane of most magazine shoppers . . ." ...

The U.S. has now become the world leader in this category. And if we were to include all firearm-related incidents, we would find that more than 30,000 people in our nation die each year from these."

"Really? It has come to this? Our political system is so gridlocked, dysfunctional and hammerlocked by the gun lobby that the best we can do for our babies is to buy them an orange, bulletproof baby blanket for school?"

"While the other parents of those stabbed, shot, or run over by the deranged narcissist in the Isla Vista rampage have been introspective in their grief, Martinez instead ran to the media’s cameras to lash out against, of all things, gun owners who have done him no harm.

"The Second Amendment has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud — I repeat the word 'fraud' — on the American public by special interest groups that I have seen in my lifetime."

"No, that’s not my opinion, (well, it is but I didn’t originally say it). Nor was it said by President Obama, Mayor Bloomberg; not Rambo, Rimbaud, or a random, raving ranter."

"That anti-Second Amendment sentiment was said by none other than Chief Justice Warren Burger, a hard-nosed conservative appointed by Richard Nixon."

"Luckily, for Burger at any rate, he didn’t live long enough to see that the 'fraud,' which was supposed to give us the right to bear arms against tyranny, has instead allowed tyranny to bear arms against us." ...

"Fifty years ago America redefined its social, political and cultural landscape by guaranteeing civil rights ... for all citizens, irrespective of race or background. A half-century later, too many young people of color, especially black boys and young men, are routine victims of gun violence."

"And stemming this rising tide of gun violence is the civil rights issue of our time."

"In the 21st century, mass shootings have become stunningly common, their frequency corresponding with the availability of guns nationally. From suburban enclaves to inner cities, rural America to Midwestern prairies, shooting sprees have tragically scarred high schools and colleges; movie theaters and malls; churches, synagogues and mosques. ..." ...

Government is using an issue of troubled, evil liberals attacking and killing innocents, and twisting it in an attempt to falsely make it a firearms issue. Moreover, government is then attempting to illegally infringe upon the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans."

"Carson wrote: 'Most American gun owners register their weapons, follow all necessary safety precautions, and use them only as tools for protection or recreation. However, the United States has an unacceptably high level of gun crime. I believe that strong restrictions must be enacted to protect both the public and the Second Amendment ...'" ...

"Straw men cannot and should not buy guns. A 'straw man,' in this context, is a person who buys a gun on behalf of another, an act that is prohibited when the purchase is made from a federally licensed dealer."

"The intention of the federal law was to ensure people who cannot legally buy guns – felons, minors and the mentally ill, for example -- can’t simply hire a proxy, someone who can pass the rigorous background checks licensed dealers are required to perform. It is meant to inhibit those from buying guns with the intent of selling to other, incompetent 3rd party buyers."

"An argument before the Supreme Court suggested this law shouldn’t apply to eligible gun owners buying on behalf of other eligible gun owners." ...
