VPC inadvertently exposes myth of gun control as 'public safety'

"The Violence Policy Center's Josh Sugarmann claims that with Obama having signed restrictive new tobacco legislation into law, gunmakers are now the 'last unregulated industry.'" ...

"... my point is that Sugarmann claims that all the gun laws on the books are apparently not 'safety measures.'"
"Yet these are sales standards, not product safety standards."
"Now wait a second--you mean those tens of thousands of gun laws aren't about safety? I agree, of course, but I didn't expect the forcible citizen disarmament cheerleaders to come out and admit it."

"How much can I quote under Fair Use?"

"Some of the time I'm on the lookout for error in gun control issues. Part of what many gun rights activists do is educate the electorate in what it is about guns as a powerful multi-faceted part of our liberty culture. My own mission is that it's not even about guns, but about personal burdens no one can assume for you, only to your regret. The armed citizen in the United States does not fight tyranny by a gun directly, the armed citizen discredits go-nowhere anti-crime programs which, by themselves, tyrannize taxpayers. The armed citizen -- under citizen authority and law -- impeaches the very need for so many such programs on the face of them ..." ...

"Reading a recent post by our own Austin Gun Rights Examiner, your Texas Statehouse Examiner decided to look at his findings and see what they mean in relation to the 2009 legislative session, and to do a little opining of his own."

"Texas is a gun-loving state. You don’t have to look too far for the proof. In 2009, a host of bills concerning gun rights made it to the floor of the Texas Legislature, and while other commentators have covered them thoroughly, it should give us a starting point to consider gun rights as a whole."

Less Than 24 Percent of Guns Seized by Mexican Authorities in 2008 Were Traced Back to U.S.

"Less than 24 percent of the guns seized last year by Mexican authorities, mostly from drug trafficking organizations, were traced back to the United States, according to data released in a report by the Government Accountability Office."

"Of the 30,000 guns seized by Mexican authorities in 2008, only 7,200, or approximately 24 percent, were submitted to the U.S. for tracing. Of those 7,200 firearms, 6,700 (or about 22 percent) were actually determined to have originated in the United States."

"The country of origin for the remaining 22,800 guns seized by Mexico that were not traced cannot be known." ...

"As if the wackos weren't dangerous enough to begin with, the fuel to further inflame them is available in the over-the-top rhetoric of the National Rifle Association, which has relentlessly pounded the bogus theme that Barack Obama is planning to take away people's guns.

Purported judicial activism of Sotomayor and what that means

"Since most conservatives believe in gun rights, are they willing to abide by a strict reading of the Second Amendment? It states: 'A well regulated Militia ...' The opening phrase (grammatically) is an adverbial, participial phrase, which governs the independent clause that is the subject of the sentence."

"In short, it tells us the condition under which we have 'the right to keep and bear arms.' Therefore, the only people who have a right to keep and bear arms are those who are either in a state militia or are likely to be in one — maybe 1 percent of those in America who have arms today." ...

"The NRA cited a Justice Department inspector general's report in March that found that about 24,000 of 400,000 people on the list ... were named based on outdated or irrelevant information in FBI files, sometimes after their cases had been closed."

"'Law-abiding Americans should not be treated like terrorists,' Cox said ... 'To deny law-abiding people due process and their Second Amendment rights based on a secret list is not how we do things in America.'

"The Congressional watchdog group, The Government Accountability Office (GAO), is reporting that there have been 800 gun buyers who were on the terrorist watch list. The list is maintained by the FBI and is a factor that is supposed to disqualify someone from buying a gun in the United States. The question is, of course, how did these 800 people slip through that crack and obtain guns." ...

"People named on the government's terrorism watch list have successfully purchased firearms hundreds of times since 2004, government investigators reported yesterday. In one case, a known or suspected terrorist was able to obtain an explosives license, the Government Accountability Office reported." ...

"Citing a 'terror gap,' Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Reps. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and Robert C. Scott (D-Va.) released the study, and Lautenberg introduced legislation yesterday to give the U.S. attorney general authority to stop the sale of guns or explosives to terrorists." ...

KABA Note: Interesting how the Times moved from preventing "people named on the government's terrorism watch list" from buying guns to "stop[ping] the sale of guns or explosives to terrorists". Guilt by association: If you are on the watchlist, you must be a terrorist.

"Lautenberg isn't nearly as interested in protecting this country from terrorists as he is in disarming its citizens. He just wants to hand Eric Holder the authority to deny as many people as possible their rights under the Second Amendment.

"What is somewhat disconcerting about this GAO report, and other similar studies, is the acceptance as fact that restricting gun ownership laws in the United States will help Mexico control violence in Mexico. It is a flawed assumption, one rooted in troglodyte Mexican gun control laws – some of the strictest in the world. For Mexico, controlling U.S. gun ownership laws is nothing more than its latest political scapegoat for its failure to protect its people from drug cartel violence." ...

"As Parliament breaks for summer, the opposition is mobilizing to stop a private member's bill to scrap the long gun registry. Yet there is no convincing research showing that the gun registry has saved a single life."

"The homicide rate had fallen impressively before 2001, when the long gun registry started, but has remained relatively stable since. In 1991, the homicide rate was 2.7 per 100,000, in 1996, the homicide rate was down to 2.1 and by 2000, it had slid to 1.8. By 2005, the homicide rate had risen to 2.0."
