Why gun control does not work

"Aurora, Newtown, Chattanooga and Lafayette have all been the settings of dreadful tragedies."

"Each of these resulted in select politicians, and even President Barrack Obama, demanding gun control across the United States of America."

"Some anti-gun activists desire stricter gun laws, while other anti-gun activists have acquired aspirations for a ban on all guns across the nation. They claim that the Second Amendment is outdated, and that we will be safer in the complete absence of firearms. This has been, and continues to be, a popular topic of discussion, especially with the presidential race coming upon us." ...

... "'I've had to make statements like this too many times,' President Barack Obama said June 18 following the Charleston shooting -- then his eighth speech on mass shootings in six years. 'Communities like this have had to endure tragedies like this too many times.'"

"While such tragedies attract headlines and prompt national debates on gun laws, mass shootings -- most often defined as the killing of at least four people -- account for less than 1 percent of gun-related violence in the U.S. According to the National Institute of Justice, mass shootings account for an average of 35 fatalities a year, while homicides claimed 11,000 lives in 2011 alone." ...

"'A new Pew poll finds that support for the NRA has rapidly consolidated along party lines in recent years,' thetrace.org’s latest email blast claims, 'tilting each side of the gun safety debate to a more extreme point of view. Just 13 percent of Republicans now think the NRA has too much influence, down significantly from 2000, when one in three Republicans thought the NRA held too much sway. By contrast, 68 percent of Democrats believe the NRA has too much influence, up from 57 percent 15 years ago.' I certainly don’t recall seeing any Democratic speakers at the last NRA convention. On one hand . . ." ...

"This snippet from the League of Women Voters’ “Gun Summit” highlights the inanity of the arguments against campus carry. Paul Rooney, assistant vice president of safety at Valencia College, is against campus carry because . . . wait for it . . . his officers are unarmed. Check out the logic (such as it is) from the video above . . ." ...

Gear Review: American Security Easy Carry Handgun Safe

"If you’re a regular TTAG reader, you may have read Chris Dumm’s review of American Security’s aptly-named Heavy Duty Handgun Safe last year. If you didn’t, spoiler alert: he liked it a lot, especially as a secondary safe used to keep a full-size handgun handy in your bedroom or car. It’s sturdy, pry-resistant and has a tough-to-defeat Simplex lock that can’t easily be defeated by punching it. Made from 10-gauge steel, AmSec’s Heavy Duty model is better built than Sophia Vergara, but weighs in at a Patton Oswalt-esque 24 lbs. Now, though, recognizing that some gun owners may want something a little more portable and a lot less likely to induce a hernia, AmSec has introduced the EZ Carry Handgun Safe . . ." ...

"As part of our ‘policy’ at Concealed Nation, we typically don’t cover open carry topics. After all, we are Concealed Nation. The policy wasn’t even a policy until it had to be a policy. Anytime we cover anything relating to open carry, a war plays out in the comments section of the post and article. Just watch. This time will be no different . . ."

"I get that some people are only for concealed carry and others swing the other way. Then you have those who don’t care… just as long as you’re carrying. In the end, it literally doesn’t matter one bit as long as the carrier is being responsible. It’s really that simple." ...

"It’s the most wonderful time of the the year – the second half of August, when kids going back to school. That means more morning traffic and sometimes getting stuck behind those frequently-stopping big yellow land barges. In California, that also means taxpayer-funded government schools promoting the agenda of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership. The Fremont Union High School District recently sent the above letter to about 10,000 students and their parents. A reader who wishes to remain anonymous had a few questions . . ." ...

"As usual, Mother Jones is all about pushing new gun control proposals. Their latest article on the subject uses a Pew research study to push forward the idea that there are some “common sense gun control proposals” that we can all agree on, no matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican. There’s just one problem: the proposals presented in the poll bear no resemblance whatsoever to the legislation that has been proposed on the subject. Here’s why these numbers don’t match up with reality . . ." ...

"After reading the Aug. 3 editorial, 'Florida’s ‘Docs vs. Glocks’ ruling takes a bullet,' I have come to a couple of conclusions:"

"1. Gun owners who take offense at pediatricians mentioning gun safety have no understanding of child psychology and normal child behavior."

"2. The judges of the federal 11th Circuit Court of Appeals have the same problem."

"Children are naturally curious and without fear. For this reason, we 'child-proof' our kitchen and bathroom cabinets, so kids have no access to cleaning products. We place laundry detergent pods on high shelves. We pay attention to toy recalls." ...

"Last month, we reported on a story by the L.A. Times that indicated the Obama White House is eyeing ways to use the Social Security Administration (SSA) as a source of records for NICS, which includes a federal database of persons prohibited from possessing or receiving firearms. One option the story discussed was SSA’s adoption of a model employed by the Veteran’s Administration, which reports to NICS as 'adjudicated as a mental defective' beneficiaries who have been assigned a 'fiduciary' to manage their benefits. This has resulted in some 177,000 VA beneficiaries being reported as prohibited persons to NICS, without the necessity of any judicial finding whatsoever as to their propensity for dangerous or violent behavior. ..." ...

"On August 13, Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed an NRA-backed bill which protects the guns of those subject to Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs)."

"A GVRO, a temporary ban on gun ownership for people believed to be a threat to themselves or others, was instituted in the wake of Elliot Rodger’s Santa Barbara attack."

"The NRA opposed GVROs because they open the door for a neighbor or family member to approach a judge and seek the suspension of Second Amendment rights for those with whom they are disgruntled. ..." ...

"Assault rifles are perhaps the most vilified guns in the history of the United States, a weapon of choice for mass murderers Adam Lanza in Newtown and James Holmes in Aurora, Colo."

"There’s a strong public outcry against the high-capacity and sometimes high-powered weapons, but Fairfield County is in love with them and Ridgefield is no exception."

"Data provided by the State Police under the Freedom of Information Act shows county residents own 11,322 of the weapons, with 328 in Ridgefield. A previous data request by The Press showed long guns outnumbered handguns, but didn’t included assault rifle data." ...
