Joe Biden Is Wrong. There Is No Compelling Evidence That Assault-Weapon Bans Work.

However, the three most important facts about mass shootings are (A) they have historically been incredibly rare, with entire years passing without one sometimes; (B) they are contagious, with high-profile incidents inpiring copycats and competitors; and (C) they are incredibly variable in the number of fatalities, from a low bound of wherever the researcher chooses to set it (the study Biden cites uses four, not including the perpetrator) all the way up to 58 at Las Vegas. Trying to detect a pattern in data like this, and then attributing the pattern to a single law change that covered the entire country for a ten-year period, is madness.
 

Opinion: I used to think gun control was the answer. My research told me otherwise.

Before I started researching gun deaths, gun-control policy used to frustrate me. I wished the National Rifle Association would stop blocking common-sense gun-control reforms such as banning assault weapons, restricting silencers, shrinking magazine sizes and all the other measures that could make guns less deadly.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel joined 12 other Attorneys General Tuesday in urging the Supreme Court to uphold a U.S. Court of Appeals ruling which held that states and localities can impose certain types of firearm regulations when they are substantially related to an important government objective, such as the protection of their residents.

“I am proud to join with my colleagues to preserve the right for state and local governments to implement common-sense gun safety regulations,” said Nessel.

In 2013, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and three individual residents of New York City filed a suit challenging the then-existing New York City regulation in the Southern District of New York (SDNY).

Once again, as a result of multiple copycat shootings generated by press coverage, the battle is on to suspend various provisions of the Bill of Rights. At their core, “Red Flag Laws” would allow an angry relative to suspend a gun owner's Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights. It would be as easy as a phone call to a judge alleging that the gun owner was “dangerous.”

With the recent mass shootings that have taken place, questions have been raised about tougher background checks in obtaining guns. Currently, the procedure to obtain a gun is divided into two categories. A long gun such as a rifle, AK-47, shotgun, etc. and a short gun such as a handgun which can be either semi-automatic or automatic. For long guns, local sheriff offices do not get involved in background checks according to Worth County Sheriff Dan Fank.

Ever notice that some people will do just about anything for attention? Even if it means asking the most asinine of questions in a public way… like this joker, who posed this question in a Cincinnati Enquirer article: “Should Walmart, Kroger and other retailers ban carrying guns in stores?” The answer is obvious: Only if they wish to endanger their customers. It seems that a grieving widow has filed what I believe to be a frivolous lawsuit against Kroger, “claiming it didn’t do enough to prevent [her husband’s] murder.”

Police equipment was inside a pickup truck taken by a carjacker early Tuesday morning at a BP gas station on Fort Street near Clark Avenue in Southwest Detroit.

Investigators said the driver went into the gas station and when he came out, a gunman approached him and took his keys. The gunman then left in the victim’s truck.

The gunman was also with someone in a silver van. Police are looking for that person, too.

Police body armor and a gun were inside the vehicle, but this was not a police vehicle that was stolen.

The daughter of Quakers, America’s first female superstar grew up log-cabin poor in the rural western Ohio county of Darke. From this rough start to entertaining world leaders, Phoebe Ann Moses, better known as Annie Oakley, was not only an icon of the American West, she was, and still is, a hero to women and girls from coast to coast.
 

Hawkins: Universal Background Checks Unenforceable Without Gun Registry

While universal background checks are pushed as a response to the El Paso and Dayton shooting attacks, it should be remembered that such checks are unenforceable without a gun registry. In other words, once such checks are in place, it is only a matter of time before lawmakers — in one party or the other — suggest a loose registration scheme. They will most likely do this in the days after the first mass public attack that occurs once universal background checks are the law of the land.
 

Banning 'Assault Rifles' and Large-Capacity Magazines won't Stop Mass Shooters

An “assault weapon” and large-capacity ammunition magazine ban won’t reduce the number or severity of mass shootings, any more than banning alcohol reduced alcohol-related fatalities. There are tens of millions of “assault rifles” and large-capacity magazines in private hands. For reasons many do not understand or accept, millions of owners won’t surrender them. A federal ban did not and will not eliminate “assault rifles” or decrease their number in any meaningful way.

He claims a state ban on bump stocks, and raising the age to purchase a rifel to 21, along with the so called “Red Flag” law are unconstitutional.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
