  • CRIME SURGES AS FEDS RESTRAIN POLICE, RELAX SENTENCES, REVIVE 1970S JUST BEFORE 2016 ELECTION

    Americans are watching crime surge up from the inner cities and into their neighborhoods, from the scorched QuikTrip market in Ferguson, to the burned retiree-housing in Baltimore, to spiking murder rates in Kansas City and New York, to the Texas border where federal officials wave past mass-immigration from violent countries.

    Many communities are suffering from rising crime. Chicago is experiencing the deadliest month in 13 years, with shootings increasing 50 percent since last September. Since the April riots in Baltimore, homicides spiked 39 percent while non-fatal shootings doubled since September 2014. Shockingly, Baltimore’s murder rate grew by 52 percent and non-fatal shootings leapt by 80 percent in 2015. As number-crunching blog FiveThirtyEightcalculated, 482 Americans been been shot, clubbed, stabbed, or beaten to death since President Obama began to demean and delegitimize police. That’s 77 extra dead in Baltimore and 60 extra dead in St. Louis, as Breitbart News previously reported.

    Deportations of criminal immigrants have dropped to the lowest numbers since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, despite his pledge to focus on finding and deporting criminals living in the country illegally.

  • ‘The President is not welcome here’:

    Roseburg local newspaper chief leads calls against Obama’s visit to meet the victims of the UCC shooting because the visit is merely a ‘grandstand for political purposes’.

    They claim the President is simply using the massacre to gain support for his gun-control agenda.

    Leading the chorus is David Jaques, the publisher of conservative newspaper the Roseburg Beacon, who said of Obama’s planned trip: ‘I think that’s very inappropriate, and I think it’s disrespectful to the families.’

    In fairness, Chicago actually now has one of the best concealed carry laws out there as far as big Demon-run cities go. We’re like Texas compared to NYC, Los Angeles, New Jersey. The NRA and some key advocates fought tooth and nail for shall-issue and to prevent liberals from making Chicago a Constitution-free zone, and they succeeded.

    The only crappy thing about the law is that there are a lot of restricted areas (public transportation, hospitals, schools, public parks, etc.), and that businesses can post their own no gun signs that carry the same weight as the official restricted zones. Other than that, though, you can carry as many guns as you want, no gun registration, no penalty written into the law for printing or partial exposure. In practical terms, if you drive and are conscious about the businesses you’re going to, you can carry pretty much all the time.

    On a side note, I wonder if all of the black voters who blindly vote for their Democrat slavemasters know that Democrats were working nonstop to prevent them from having guns, while Republicans and the NRA made sure their rights weren’t violated. Some things never change.

    Quote from Matt Drudge’s interview with Alex Jones:
    “I had a Supreme Court justice tell me to my face it’s over for me.
    Said, ‘Matt, it’s over for you. They’ve got the votes now to enforce
    copyright law. You’re out of there. They’re gonna make it so
    headlines–you can’t even use headlines.’”

    If they make it illegal to LINK to websites/news articles, this will shut down sites like Drudge, Breitbart, WeaselZippers, moonbattery, etc. etc. This will effectively shut down our access to NEWS and Americans’ commentary/involvement in current events. We cannot let this happen.

    Another “professor” of preferred pigmentation thinks Dr Ben Carson is a “coon”

    Dr. Ben Carson deserves a “‘coon of the year’ award,” says a tweet from Anthea Butler, a University of Pennsylvania religious-studies professor and a frequent MSNBC guest.

    Butler’s revealing invective was in response to a tweet from Daily Beast editor-at-large Goldie Taylor. That tweet highlighted a Sports Illustrated article in which Carson championed Americans’ right to fly flags — including the Confederate flag — that other Americans see as a symbol of hate.

    Nah. A group of black alderman won’t stand for it. They are calling for Garry McCarthy to be fired.

    See, it’s always somebody else’s fault. It’s never the thousands of gang bangers who have turned the south and west side into a free-fire zone. It’s never the residents who “didn’t see a thing”. It’s never the residents who blame guns, white people, or the police for making them live in a shooting gallery.

    When was the last time you heard a blubbering fat lady admitting that her grandchile was a career criminal scumball who never did a constructive thing in his life and that the world is a better place without him?

    The shootings in Roseburg are an extrapolation and negative outcropping of the anti-Christian progressive political thought that has manifested in recent years by the obsessively aggressive and vindictive LGBT community in Oregon, the leaders of which have proven to be the leaders of Oregon themselves.
    .
    The leaders of the State of Oregon have openly castigated and finally bankrupted a Christian couple who owned a bakery, who simply refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. Between the State Attorney General and the Commissioner of Labor and Industries, the couple was legally driven out of business as a result of their Christian faith. And with an outspoken openly-gay lesbian Oregon governor who supported the prosecution, Oregon democratic leadership sent a message to any crazy nut with a liberal agenda and nasty vendetta, that Christians are hateful and basically expendable.
    .
    In short, the highest level of Oregon leadership is responsible for creating and supporting a negative atmosphere that thoroughly demeans Christians as homophobes and haters, and has created an “official” thought-environment that at least tacitly suggests some kind of “anytime” confrontational response. The inevitable response in Roseburg where Christians were targeted was powerfully evil, but Oregon officials disavow even a hint of their disgusting prejudice or influence, when all the while they were the fullest of partners in instigating this crime.
    .
    What is quickly and purposefully challenging historical Christian America is the homosexual agenda…the moral foundation of America is fast becoming an immoral
    foundation, where a God-based society is being replaced by a sex-based society. In a God-based society, sexuality is a gift from God. In a sex-based society, there is no room for God.

    Well thought out and well written comment. I suggest you repost it in the next open thread because it won’t get the attention it deserves on this thread.
    .
    Just a thought: The cultural Marists’ overarching agenda comprises using gays, Muslims, et al. as wreaking balls to attack traditional Western society. Of course Christianity is one of the three main pillars supporting Western civ. That’s the main reason, IMO, the cultural Marxists chose the LBGTs as proxy warriors in their war on Christianity. The radical gay agenda personifies the antithesis of the traditional Christian family. Moreover, the gay agenda is only but one weapon in the cultural Marxists’ anti-Christian arsenal. Those vile bastards are attacking us from every direction – it’s multi-dimensional.

  • Encouraging immigrants to NOT assimilate, to NOT try to learn English

    Immigrants looking to become naturalized U.S. citizens can now study for the civics portion of the test in Spanish, courtesy of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

    Aspiring citizens can find study sheets, flash cards and audio tools in Spanish at USCIS.gov to help them prepare for the 100-question civics test, which must be taken in English. “Prepare for your naturalization test – take our interactive Quizzes in Spanish!” a separate October USCIS blog post promoting the material says.

    The Obama administration is in the midst of a massive push to market citizenship to immigrants and refugees ahead of the 2016 election. The White House Task Force on New Americans, created by executive order in 2014, is behind a series of new initiatives aimed at ensuring they have the tools, support and encouragement they need to apply for citizenship.

    So they can vote Democrat next year.

  • Increasingly, U.S. IT workers are alleging discrimination

    Some U.S. IT workers who have been replaced with H-1B contractors are alleging discrimination and are going to court. They are doing so in increasing numbers.

    There are at least seven IT workers at Disney who are pursuing, or plan to pursue, federal and state discrimination administrative complaints over their layoffs. Another Disney worker, still employed by the firm, has filed a state administrative discrimination complaint in California. These complaints are a first step to litigation.

    Separately, there are ongoing court cases alleging discrimination against two of the largest India-based IT services firms, Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services. The federal judges in each of cases have given a green light for the plaintiffs to proceed after rejecting dismissal efforts.

    There may be federal interest in examining this issue. The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices was asked by 10 U.S. senators in April to examine the IT layoffs at Southern California Edison (SCE) and to determine whether SCE or its contractors were “engaged in prohibited citizenship status discrimination.”

    What’s being challenged, in sum, is the job replacement system created by the H-1B program. U.S. IT workers, as a condition for their severance, are being made to train H-1B visa-holding contractor replacements to take over their jobs.

    The contractors often work for IT services firms that employ large numbers of H-1B workers. Most of these workers are from India and regional countries. This practice of replacing U.S. workers with foreign workers constitutes national origin discrimination, say its critics.

  • Liberals claim government interference in wage determination isn’t causing employers to pull up stakes and move elsewhere.

    California finds out, again, that reality proves otherwise.

    Ridiculous new California “Equal Pay” law threatens to accelerate California business exodus.

    It is also an admission that you can’t legislate the desired goal:

    “Sixty-six years after passage of the California Equal Pay Act, many women still earn less money than men doing the same or similar work,” said Moonbeam Brown.

    It didn’t work sixty years ago but by golly it’s going to work this time!

    It’s all based on a lie anyway: Free market advocates have disputed the wage gap, arguing that it all but disappears when factoring in career choice, years worked, part-time versus full-time hours and other measures.

    Richard A. Epstein, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, called the California bill “crazy,” predicting it would intensify the state’s economic woes by creating an “administrative quagmire” that will discourage voluntary job changes and encourage companies to leave or reduce their state footprint.

    “The asymmetrical outcomes are likely to distort labor markets further, and to give firms a strong incentive to expand their businesses elsewhere and even to transfer existing work out of the state,” Mr. Epstein, a New York University Law School professor, said in an October 1 post on his Hoover blog.

  • Liberals claim government interference in wage determination isn’t causing employers to pull up stakes and move elsewhere.

    California finds out, again, that reality proves otherwise.

    Ridiculous new California “Equal Pay” law threatens to accelerate California business exodus.

    It is also an admission that you can’t legislate the desired goal:

    “Sixty-six years after passage of the California Equal Pay Act, many women still earn less money than men doing the same or similar work,” said Moonbeam Brown.

    It didn’t work sixty years ago but by golly it’s going to work this time!

    It’s all based on a lie anyway: Free market advocates have disputed the wage gap, arguing that it all but disappears when factoring in career choice, years worked, part-time versus full-time hours and other measures.

    And here is reality:

    One Republican who voted against the bill was Assemblymember Bill Brough, who said he wants to see women earn equal pay, but that he believes the bill will “create a more hostile work environment and more frivolous litigation.”

    A huge dose of reality for liberals – and yet it does them NO GOOD!

    My huge generalities touch on their over-sensitivity, their insistence that they are right despite the overwhelming proof that suggests they are not, their lack of placing things within context, the overreacting, the passive-aggressive positivity, and, of course, all of this exacerbated by the meds they’ve been fed since childhood by over-protective “helicopter” parents mapping their every move. These are late-end Baby Boomers and Generation X parents who were now rebelling against their own rebelliousness because of the love they felt that they never got from their selfish narcissistic Boomer parents and who end up smothering their kids, inducing a kind of inadequate preparation in how to deal with the hardships of life and the real way the world works: people won’t like you, that person may not love you back, kids are really cruel, work sucks, it’s hard to be good at something, life is made up of failure and disappointment, you’re not talented, people suffer, people grow old, people die. And Generation Wuss responds by collapsing into sentimentality and creating victim narratives rather than acknowledging the realities of the world and grappling with them and processing them and then moving on, better prepared to navigate an often hostile or indifferent world that doesn’t care if you exist.

    Generation Wuss is overly sensitive, especially when dealing with criticism. When Generation Wuss creates something they have so many outlets to display it that it often goes out into the world unfettered, unedited, posted everywhere, and because of this freedom a lot of the content displayed is rushed and kind of shitty and that’s OK—it’s just the nature of the world now—but when Millennials are criticized for this content they seem to collapse into a shame spiral and the person criticizing them is automatically labeled a hater, a contrarian, a troll. And then you have to look at the generation that raised them, that coddled them in praise—gold medals for everyone, four stars for just showing up—and tried to shield them from the dark side of life, and in turn created a generation that appears to be super confident and positive about things but when the least bit of darkness enters into their realm they become paralyzed and unable to process it.

    one of the worst fights my boyfriend and I endured was about the Tyler Clemente suicide here in the United States. Clemente was an 18 year-old Rutger’s University student who killed himself because he felt he was being bullied by his roommate Dharun Ravi. Ravi never touched Tyler or threatened him but filmed Tyler making out with another man unbeknownst to Tyler and then tweeted about it. Embarrassed by this web-cam prank, Tyler threw himself off the George Washington Bridge a few days later. The fight I had with my boyfriend was about victimization narratives and cyber-“bullying” versus imagined threats and genuine hands-on bullying. Was this just the case of an overly sensitive Generation Wuss snowflake that made national news because of how trendy the idea of cyber-bullying was in that moment (and still is to a degree) or was this a deeply troubled young person who simply snapped because he was brought down by his own shame and then was turned into a victim/hero (they are the same thing now in the United States) by a press eager to present the case out of context and turning Ravi into a monster just because of a pretty harmless—in my mind—freshman dorm-room prank?

  • Liberalism blinks.

    The Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services announced they would not include sustainability in their nutrition guidelines for Americans, backing away from a report that recommended plant-based diets in order to help forestall climate change.

    The decision came a day before USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell were set for a grilling from Congress on the new “Dietary Guidelines For Americans.” The secretaries are testifying before the House Agriculture Committee Wednesday morning.

    Watch, after appearing before Congress they’ll sneak them back in.

  • Why it is high treason when Obama & Democrats refuse to secure our borders.

    Over the pulsating beat at an exclusive nightclub, the arms smuggler made his pitch to a client: 2.5 million euros for enough radioactive cesium to contaminate several city blocks.

    But the smuggler, Valentin Grossu, wasn’t sure the client was for real – and he was right to worry. The client was an informant, and it took some 20 meetings to persuade Grossu that he was an authentic Islamic State representative. Eventually, the two men exchanged cash for a sample in a sting operation that landed Grossu in jail.

    The previously unpublicized case is one of at least four attempts in five years in which criminal networks with suspected Russian ties sought to sell radioactive material to extremists through Moldova, an investigation by The Associated Press has found. One investigation uncovered an attempt to sell bomb-grade uranium to a real buyer from the Middle East, the first known case of its kind.

  • Would-be killers target gun-free zones

    Gee, you’re just figuring that out?

    Funny though, that this last one wasn’t actually in a ‘gun-free’ zone. Yes, guns were discouraged, but not completely banned there:

    Oregon law does allow permitted concealed handguns on school property. The New York Times, Media Matters, and others have been quick to pounce on this fact. What has been ignored, however, is that public educators in Oregon have undermined the law by putting bans in faculty and student handbooks.

    There may be no criminal sanctions for violating the ban, but faculty face termination and students risk expulsion. Those are life-altering penalties. Faculty members undoubtedly won’t get another academic job if they committed a firearms violation. Expelled students are very unlikely to be admitted into another college.

    Although Umpqua can theoretically provide written exemptions for the bans, school president Rita Calvin wouldn’t even let the college’s security guards carry guns.

    Only people unaffiliated with the college can carry on campus. But even they are subject to a 2011 Oregon appeals court decision that allowed schools to ban guns in their buildings.

    What all these rules mean is that no potential victims — students, faculty, or those unaffiliated with the college — were able to defend themselves in the classroom where the attack occurred.

    Second is Portland, Oregon, where sales are high at a company that offers products for “relationship enhancement.”
    Ann Arbor, Michigan ranks third, a college town that apparently purchases a lot of sex-related books.
    San Antonio, Texas ranks fourth; Boise, Idaho ranks fifth; Seattle, Washington ranks sixth; Washington, D.C. ranks seventh; Alexandria, Virginia is tied with Salt Lake City, Utah for eighth; Cincinnati, Ohio ranks ninth; and Cambridge, Massachusetts ranks tenth.
    As for the least sexually active cities, Jacksonville, Florida is #1 in that category.
    Other cities with low levels of lust include Greensboro, North Carolina, Providence, Rhode Island, Pomona, California, and Jersey City, New Jersey.

  • Liberals continue to attack one of their own after he spoke conservative truth on one issue.

    Liberals knew about, but didn’t have a problem with, Cosby’s past. Not until he spoke out on the issue of black men not stepping up and being good fathers and such.

    Now I’m not here to defend Cosby or anything he did. There may be one or two women, from what I’ve heard, who have valid complaints. But many of them went back to him repeatedly AND NEVER SAID A THING FOR YEARS and are only now coming forward. The statute of limitations ran out long ago for them. Any woman who kept going back and ‘enduring’ Cosby’s treatment, any woman who failed to come forward right after it happened, as far as I’m concerned, has no business expecting anything now. Because by putting up with it, by not coming forward, they enabled Cosby to continue doing whatever they claim he was doing.

  • Get ready for a smackdown of Obama.

    Either that or the Republicans need to make a big deal over Obama and the Democrats trying to leave our country defenseless.

    Senators overcame a filibuster on the annual defense policy bill Tuesday, delivering a significant victory to Republicans and teeing up a battle with President Obama over a threatened veto on the bill, which does everything from raising troops’ pay to setting policy for Guantanamo Bay detainees.

    It would be the fifth veto of the president’s tenure, and Republicans said given the popularity of the bill and the dangerous threats the military is confronting overseas, an Obama veto would be the equivalent of declaring surrender.

    “I cannot imagine a president of the United States vetoing a bill that authorizes the ability of Americans to defend this nation under these most challenging circumstances,” said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican and chairman of the Armed Service Committee.

  • Dog allowed to run off leash, found dead, allegedly shot in head, in Central Park, though no gunshot was ever heard and no casing was found.

    Are dogs allowed off leash in Central Park? Was this an area where dogs are allowed to be off leash?

    A man walking his dog in Central Park says the black Labrador Retriever was shot in the head. The alleged shooting took place Tuesday at about 11 p.m. near 110th Street and Central Park West. The dog ran off from its owner near a hill. When the man caught up with the dog, he found it it dead with a wound to the head, said police.

    Many of New York’s parks allow dogs to some extent. However, in no city park can dogs be allowed on ball fields, pools, or playgrounds. In Central Park, from dawn until 9 a.m. and from 9 p.m. until park closing, dogs in Central Park can be off-leash in any area that is not off-limits to dogs during other times of the day. Dogs are welcomed in most areas of the park when leashed. However, even leashed dogs can’t go into prohibited areas. By New York City ordinance, you must dispose of any waste your dog leaves on the park premises.

    Nancy Chilton has no memory of what happened after she entered Central Park on July 27, 2010. But here’s the version she has patched together from witnesses: As Ms. Chilton cycled through her second lap that morning, a dog darted in front of her bike. They collided, sending her flying over the handlebars and smashing into the pavement, cracking her helmet, according to the Wall Street Journal. Emergency surgery removed part of her skull; she fractured her pelvis and spine and sustained permanent hearing damage. If not for doctors at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, she said, “I wouldn’t have survived.” Off-Leash Consequence, Sara D. Roosevelt Park – March 10, 2011. Humans aren’t the only ones at risk. An off-leash dog was tragically killed after running into traffic and being struck by a vehicle. The beloved dog and owner had been in the lower Eastside park when tragedy struck.

    He’s going to be 78 or so when he retires from the Senate. It’s unlikely anyone would hire him anyway.

The libtards do show up in the pets’ neighborhoods occasionally–usually around voting time–but they are accompanied by armed bodyguards, lest one of the pets should become too frisky.

    Americans never give up your guns
    These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions.

    For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or “talking to them”, it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.

    The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?

    No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed.

    Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.

    So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.

    There aren’t that many differences between the various ‘flavors’ of Statism.

    They all tend to have many of the same characteristics because of the same rationale.

    1. Unlimited Government.

    2. Obsession with People (gun control) – witness they knee jerk reaction to the #SanBernardino #Terrorist attack by the #Left

    3. Desire to control free-speech – in the form of speech codes and the PC socialist Justice warriors…

    4. Control over the economy – nationalizing industries, etc. wealth redistribution, etc. .

    How the Nazis Used Gun Control
    In 1931, Weimar authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover in which Jews would be denied food and persons refusing to surrender their guns within 24 hours would be executed. They were written by Werner Best, a future Gestapo official. In reaction to such threats, the government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for “public safety.” The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group.

    In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.”

    During the five years of repression that followed, society was “cleansed” by the National Socialist regime. Undesirables were placed in camps where labor made them “free,” and normal rights of citizenship were taken from Jews. The Gestapo banned independent gun clubs and arrested their leaders. Gestapo counsel Werner Best issued a directive to the police forbidding issuance of firearm permits to Jews.

    In 1938, Hitler signed a new Gun Control Act. Now that many “enemies of the state” had been removed from society, some restrictions could be slightly liberalized, especially for Nazi Party members. But Jews were prohibited from working in the firearms industry, and .22 caliber hollow-point ammunition was banned.

    The time had come to launch a decisive blow to the Jewish community, to render it defenseless so that its “ill-gotten” property could be redistributed as an entitlement to the German “Volk.” The German Jews were ordered to surrender all their weapons, and the police had the records on all who had registered them. Even those who gave up their weapons voluntarily were turned over to the Gestapo.

    This took place in the weeks before what became known as the Night of the Broken Glass, or Kristallnacht, occurred in November 1938. That the Jews were disarmed before it, minimizing any risk of resistance, is the strongest evidence that the pogrom was planned in advance. An incident was needed to justify unleashing the attack.

    That incident would be the shooting of a German diplomat in Paris by a teenage Polish Jew. Hitler directed propaganda minister Josef Goebbels to orchestrate the Night of the Broken Glass. This massive operation, allegedly conducted as a search for weapons, entailed the ransacking of homes and businesses, and the arson of synagogues.

    SS chief Heinrich Himmler decreed that 20 years be served in a concentration camp by any Jew possessing a firearm. Rusty revolvers and bayonets from the Great War were confiscated from Jewish veterans who had served with distinction. Twenty thousand Jewish men were thrown into concentration camps, and had to pay ransoms to get released.

    The U.S. media covered the above events. And when France fell to Nazi invasion in 1940, the New York Times reported that the French were deprived of rights such as free speech and firearm possession just as the Germans had been. Frenchmen who failed to surrender their firearms within 24 hours were subject to the death penalty.

    No wonder that in 1941, just days before the Pearl Harbor attack, Congress reaffirmed Second Amendment rights and prohibited gun registration. In 1968, bills to register guns were debated, with opponents recalling the Nazi experience and supporters denying that the Nazis ever used registration records to confiscate guns. The bills were defeated, as every such proposal has been ever since, including recent “universal background check” bills.

    Australia Sees Spike in Gun Crime Despite Outright Ban
    Firearms black market in the island nation bigger than previously thought
    Australia has seen a rise in gun crime over the past decade despite imposing an outright ban on many firearms in the late 1990s.

    Charges for crimes involving firearms have increased dramatically across the island nation’s localities in the past decade according to an analysis of government statistics conducted by The New Daily. It found that gun crimes have spiked dramatically in the Australian states of Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, and Tasmania. In Victoria, pistol-related offenses doubled over the last decade. In New South Wales, they tripled. The other states saw smaller but still significant increases.

    Experts said that the country’s 1996 ban on most semi-automatic firearms has actually driven criminals to those guns. “The ban on semi-automatics created demand by criminals for other types of guns,” professor Philip Alpers of the University of Sydney told The New Daily. “The criminal’s gun of choice today is the semi-automatic pistol.”

    Gun control advocates in the country insist that the problem is too little regulation. They said, while most modern firearms are illegal and all legal firearms owners must obtain licenses from the government, ammunition is not controlled tightly enough.

    Confiscation could be an option” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D-N.Y.) December 2012

    “it’s the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact.” MSNBC’s Ed Schultz December 2012

    Obama endorses Australian-style gun confiscation: “Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown, And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws” June 2014

    If You Look at This Chart of Top 10 Nations in the World for Mass Shootings – One Thing Jumps Out http://www.ijreview.com/2015/12/348197-paris-attack-claim-mass-shootings/?
    If You Look at This Chart of Top 10 Nations in the World for Mass Shootings – One Thing Jumps Out
    The following is a chart of mass shooting statistics, when corrected for population. It shows that the U.S. has comparable frequency to other nations when accounting for its large population size. It should also be noted that the U.S. by far has most armed citizens in the world.

    The Rampage Shooting Index. Taken from a now-defunct website, assembled data from around the world to construct a per capita mass shootings index that controls for population differences. [Update: Archived data based on OECD and other statistics can be found here.]

    And since we’re just talking about members of the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), we can assume these 34 countries are sufficiently “advanced” to enter into the discussion.

    The bottom line: The United States falls from number one due to its frequency of 38 mass shootings from January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2013 (which would be number one without correcting for population) to number seven.

    Don’t bother with the ‘surrounding areas’ excuse – because if you use that you be required to clearly explain why guns aren’t a bigger problem in those areas.

    DHS official throws cold water on using no-fly list for gun control
    We’ve heard plenty of talk from Barack Obama and leading Democrats about using the terror no-fly list to block certain people from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. Today, though, it became clear that no one at the White House has bothered talking to the people who would have to implement such a policy. In an appearance today at a House Oversight Committee hearing, a DHS official said that the use of the list for any other purposes would be “apples and oranges”:

    A top official at the Department of Homeland Security on Thursday appeared to break with the White House’s call for Congress to ban people on the federal no-fly list from buying guns.

    I believe it would be apples and oranges” to use the watch list for anything other than its designed purpose, Assistant Secretary for International Affairs Alan Bersin told House lawmakers in an Oversight Committee hearing on Thursday. …

    Bersin did not seem to be aware of the Obama administration’s proposal on Thursday.

    Not aware at all? Given that this was a major component of Obama’s response to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, it’s either a measure of Obama’s importance to bureaucrats, the White House’s research skills, or both. Besides, the no-fly list isn’t exactly burgeoning with potential applications of this new policy, either.

    “Less than 0.1 percent” of the tens of thousands of people on the federal no-fly list are Americans, Bersin told lawmakers.

    So how many would that be, anyway? If the no-fly list has 50,000 people on it — the exact number has not been revealed — then “less than 0.1%” would be fewer than fifty people. Can’t they just investigate those fifty or so people and charge them with whatever crimes they commit that would substantiate revocation of their constitutional rights?

    As I’ve written before, the proposal to use the no-fly list is nothing more than a red herring — a way to change the subject from a terrorist attack to gun control. The fact that the White House and leading Democrats aren’t even bothering to discuss this with Homeland Security leadership only makes it more painfully obvious.

    DHS official throws cold water on using no-fly list for gun control
    We’ve heard plenty of talk from Barack Obama and leading Democrats about using the terror no-fly list to block certain people from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. Today, though, it became clear that no one at the White House has bothered talking to the people who would have to implement such a policy. In an appearance today at a House Oversight Committee hearing, a DHS official said that the use of the list for any other purposes would be “apples and oranges”:

    This is the problem for you blokes on the national Socialist Left – your side has made it perfectly clear that they want to Register, Ban and CONFISCATE Guns.

    The nation’s socialists Have made it clear they want to use registration and Intergalactic Background Checks as a ‘step by step process” to Ban Guns:

    How to Ban Guns: A step by step, long term process
    The very first thing we need is national registry. We need to know where the guns are, and who has them.

    Along with this, make private sales illegal.

    We want to encourage as much voluntary compliance as possible.

    So, we get those logbooks, and cross reference the names and addresses with the new national registry.
    This exercise isn’t so much to track down every gun ever sold; the main idea would be to profile and investigate people that may not have registered their guns.
    I’m concerned that other guy who bought a half dozen assault weapons, registered two hunting rifles, and belongs to the NRA/GOA. He’s the guy who warrants a raid.

    So registration is the first step. Now that the vast majority are registered, we can do what we will.

    2,887 Shooting Victims In Gun-Controlled Chicago, Year To Date…
    So if the reason is because of ‘lax’ states nearby, why don’t they have more gun crime there?
    Via Breitbart:

    On December 22 the Chicago Tribune reported that the number of shooting victims in gun-controlled Chicago year-to-date is 2,887.

    Nearly 3,000 shooting victims in a city with an “assault weapons” ban, a “violence tax” on every gun and bullet sold, strict limitations on the number of gun store and on the locations of said stores. and numerous other gun controls ubiquitously instituted to keep law-abiding citizens safer, but which actually make it far more difficult for law-abiding citizens to acquire the guns they need for self-defense.

    The Chicago Tribune previously reported that there had already been 2,703 shootings and 440 deaths in Chicago by November 23. Now the Tribune reports that there have been a total of 2,887 shooting victims year-to-date in Chicago.

    The Tribune reported two people shot dead and eight more wounded on Sunday alone.

    Breitbart News previously reported that Obama refused to admit the failure of Chicago gun control during a speech in the city on October 27. Instead, he blamed the city’s growing violence on states like Indiana and Wisconsin.

    911 Dispatcher Tells Woman About To Be Sexually Assaulted There Are No Cops To Help Her Due To Budget Cuts
    JOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore. (CBS Seattle) — An Oregon woman was told by a 911 dispatcher that authorities wouldn’t be able be able to help her as her ex-boyfriend broke into her place because of budget cuts.

    Oregon Public Radio reports that an unidentified woman called 911 during a weekend in August 2012 while Michael Bellah was breaking into her place. Her call was forwarded to Oregon State Police because of lay-offs at the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office only allows the department to be open Monday through Friday.

    “Uh, I don’t have anybody to send out there,” the 911 dispatcher told the woman. “You know, obviously, if he comes inside the residence and assaults you, can you ask him to go away? Do you know if he’s intoxicated or anything?”

    The woman told the dispatcher that Bellah previously attacked her and left her hospitalized a few weeks prior to the latest incident. The dispatcher stayed on the phone with the woman for more than 10 minutes before the sexual assault took place.

    “Once again it’s unfortunate you guys don’t have any law enforcement out there,” the dispatcher said, according to Oregon Public Radio.

    The woman responded: “Yeah, it doesn’t matter, if he gets in the house I’m done.”

    Police say Bellah choked the woman and sexually assaulted her. He was arrested by Oregon State Police following the incident.

    Keep in mind the Gun grabber’s favorite tactic:

    Pretending Gun laws don’t exist and each time new laws are added to the old they reset their rhetoric.

    This is exemplified by when they Lie and spout items like the “Easy access to guns” or “it’s easier to buy guns than it is to buy vegetables”

    Thus they can make the factious claim that the 2nd amendment has been infringed upon each time steal away a little bit more of our Freedom……

    State Lawmakers Prep Gun Control Policies For 2016
    State lawmakers are scheduled to consider stricter firearms policies when they return to their respective capitol buildings in January.

    In Illinois, a bill introduced by a Democratic state lawmaker in late December would revoke a citizen’s firearms owner ID card and result in the seizure of the individual’s firearms, if the person’s name is added to the FBI terror watch list.

    A Nevada Democratic state senator announced a similar bill on Dec. 14 that would “prohibit those on the Federal No-Fly List from purchasing firearms in Nevada.” The bill echoes legislation that recently failed to pass Congress.

    Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s operatives are also pushing to get an initiative on the 2016 Nevada ballot that would criminalize private transfers of firearms. Bloomberg-funded groups are heading to other states like Maine and Arizona to propose similar gun control initiatives.

    50 Ways Lose your hardware [Humor Vanity]
    Listen up people, there’s lots of deep water and mountainous cliffs out there, so let’s all be careful out there. Think of this as a warning as to all the places that people could inadvertently lose those long and short metal objects.

    Worn holsters, carrying cases with faulty latches, backpacks full of holes. Not to mention tripping over roots and rocks, slippery hands and just general clumsiness.

    Sometime people lose everything in a small forest fire or an overturned canoe. Sometimes things are lost to inaccessible places like off steep cliffs or dark ravines. Occasionally it’s an innocent trip near a deep still lake in the mountains, and the last thing you see is that shiny metal splashing into the murky green water. There are those rare times were one might carry along their hardware to more exotic places. Geysers and hot springs, volcanoes and old mine shafts.

    One can imagine an almost magnetic pull on the metal into the bottomless reaches of a unexplored cave or unfathomable sinkhole. Even quicksand and gravel pits out yonder in remote places can swallow up even long pieces, that no matter how long and hard your search, the cold darkness forces you to retreat back to civilization. And who can remember where something small enough to fit into the of palm of your hand was lost, upon returning for another search, weeks or months later?

    All of this could mean that you have your hardware one minute and it’s GONE FOREVER The next.

    These are probably the top 50 + ways one could Lose all or some of their hardware(In No real order of importance):

    15. Whitewater wipe out, Walt
    16. Lost in cave, Dave
    17. Left on top of the truck, Chuck
    18. Holster fail, Dale
    19. Hole in pocket, Crockett
    20. Mountain hike, Spike
    21. Buried in crete, Pete

    Doctors can report some mentally ill patients to FBI under new gun control rule http://www.politico.com/story/2016/01/obama-gun-control-rule-mental-illness-217340

    Doctors can report some mentally ill patients to FBI under new gun control rule
    Delivering on its promise to deliver “common sense” gun control, the Obama administration on Monday finalized a rule that enables health care providers to report the names of mentally ill patients to an FBI firearms background check system.
    [..]
    While the 1993 Brady law prohibits gun ownership by individuals who have been involuntarily committed, found incompetent to stand trial or otherwise deemed by a court to be a danger to themselves or others, federal health care privacy rules prohibited doctors and other providers from sharing information without the consent of their patients.

    Under the rule, which takes effect next month, for the first time health providers can disclose the information to the background check system without legal repercussions.

    “The disclosure is restricted to limited demographic and certain other information needed for NICS purposes,” the rule states. Disclosure of diagnostic or clinical information is prohibited.

    Government Named Top U.S. Problem for Second Straight Year http://www.gallup.com/poll/187979/government-named-top-problem-second-straight-year.aspx?

    Government Named Top U.S. Problem for Second Straight Year
    16% of Americans see government as nation’s top problem
    The economy ranks second at 13%
    Unemployment mentions drop by half, but still rank third
    Immigration ranks in top four for first time in eight years

    Although mentions of terrorism averaged just 5% for the year, the percentage of Americans citing it spiked to 16% in December following the terrorist attacks in Paris and the San Bernardino shooting in which two individuals killed 14 people. Earlier in the year, terrorism rose as a concern to 8% following the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, which al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claims to have orchestrated. Otherwise, monthly mentions of terrorism were mostly in the 2% to 4% range throughout the year.

    Another issue that briefly spiked as a concern in 2015 was gun control, with mentions rising from near 1% most months to 7% in October and December following mass shootings that dominated the news. Similarly, mentions of immigration rose above 10% in September, possibly reflecting Americans’ concerns about the European migrant crisis, or in response to the publicity that the Republican presidential debates gave to Donald Trump’s stances against illegal immigration.

    Molôn Labé! ‘Talk’ of Gun Confiscation reference
    It used to be that the gun grabbers desperately attempted to keep a thin veneer of plausible deniability on their ultimate goal of Confiscation. After all, you can’t very well sucker people into the government controlling their private property with Intergalactic Background Checks and registration if it’s known that those are but a pretext for confiscation later on.

    But now out of frustration at the lack of ‘progress’ in destroying out rights they have dropped the mask and are now calling for full on repeal of the second amendment, gun bans and outright confiscation. To be sure they still try to pretend this is not the case and hence the reason for this reference piece.

    The purpose here is to document the myriad times them have called for gun confiscation so that when they turn around and LIE about it, We have the FACTS to prove they are Lying.

    Such as in this case: Obama Mocks Gun Owners http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2013/04/04/obama-mocks-gun-owners

    For example, Comrade Clinton recently called for the government to make people an offer they can’t refuse-turn over their means of self-defense in exchange for their own money OR spend some time in the pokey.

    In response to an inquiry about Australian gun confiscation, she responded that:
    “In the Australian example, as I recall, that was a buyback program….. I think it would be worth considering doing it on the national level” Hillary Clinton October 16 2015 http://www.c-span.org/video/?328774-1/hillary-clinton-town-hall-meeting-keene-new-hampshire

    And as typical, she has tried to deny the obvious, but the words and articles from her Comrades on the national Socialist left make it clear that Confiscation is their ultimate goal. Their subsequent lies on the subject are condemned by their own words.

    This will be a list of calls for repeal of the 2nd amendment, gun bans and Confiscation in more or less in chronological order, most will be links only to save space and restrictions.
    I would ask that you try to just post links and excerpts to this thread such that is a good resource for FR, when the #nationalSocialistLeft trots out their “No one is talking about Confiscating gun” LIE. Please read through the links and references and check them out for viability and accuracy. And if you think some I have missed, please list them here for everyone else’s use.

    Examining the list you will see the trends over the past few years. It began with the left wanting the “Assault Weapon” scam and registration. Then it transitioned to advocacy for the repeal of the 2nd amendment and followed recently with outright calls for confiscation.

    Item one has a ‘moderate’ thrust with the ‘generous’ granting of the rights we free citizens have to possess a gun under their conditions (Isn’t that really nice of them?)

    Mar 24, 2012

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-b45FdDN3s&feature=player_detailpage

    Then of course the Sandy Hook terrorist attack took place and things changed overnight. Consider the context of that time. Obama had just stolen a second term in office and the national Socialist left was all aglow in their supposed preeminence over the forces of Freedom and Liberty. Shortly thereafter that attack took place and the national Socialist Left took this on as a sign that their moment had arrived and that this ‘Horrific’ attack would be THE moment to finally vanquish the people’s common sense civil right to armed self-defense.

    How to Ban Guns: A step by step, long term process
    The very first thing we need is national registry. We need to know where the guns are, and who has them.
    Along with this, make private sales illegal.

    We want to encourage as much voluntary compliance as possible.

    So, we get those logbooks, and cross reference the names and addresses with the new national registry.
    This exercise isn’t so much to track down every gun ever sold; the main idea would be to profile and investigate people that may not have registered their guns.
    I’m concerned that other guy who bought a half dozen assault weapons, registered two hunting rifles, and belongs to the NRA/GOA. He’s the guy who warrants a raid.

    So registration is the first step. Now that the vast majority are registered, we can do what we will.

    Then in the past year or so the talk verged more into the realm of outright Confiscation [or it’s innocuous sounding euphemisms: ban, Gun buyback, etc.]

    Such as the case with Obama on June 10, 2014
    “A couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it – we’re not seeing that again. And basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws.”

    Then again recently on October 01, 2015

    “We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours – Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours.”

    And here we have another case of the indulging in their most lurid of statist fantasies:
    Effective Gun Control – A National Semi-Auto Ban
    Act I Step 1:
    The POTUS issues a EO, commanding the BATFE to ‘audit dealer records’- ie, look for “strawman sales” by reviewing each of the dealers Form 4473 records.
    So, now we have ALL the records scanned… and a comprehensive list of who purchased what gun where.
    Act II Step 1:
    Strike a deal with the Republicans. For public consumption, word it as ambiguously as possible… as was the ACA (just pass it and we’ll find out what’s in it) and stuff it into the next Continuing Resolution.
    Step 2: Federalize (“second”) the National Guard of the respective states.
    Step 3: Go door-to-door with your list of gun purchasers, and get access to the guns.
    No gun? Where is it? Who has it? Where’s the paperwork? No gun, no paperwork?
    Sadly, it appears the nationwide cell phone network is down, unless you’re using a government contract cell phone. Yes, surprise is key.

    http://www.sanjoseinside.com/2014/05/30/rich-robinson-its-time-to-repeal-the-2nd-amendment/

    Then in the past year or so the talk verged more into the realm of outright Confiscation [or it’s innocuous sounding euphemisms: ban, Gun buyback, etc.]

    Such as the case with Obama on June 10, 2014
    “A couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it – we’re not seeing that again. And basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws.”

    Then again recently on October 01, 2015

    “We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours – Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours.”

    The POTUS issues a EO, commanding the BATFE to ‘audit dealer records’- ie, look for “strawman sales” by reviewing each of the dealers Form 4473 records.
    So, now we have ALL the records scanned… and a comprehensive list of who purchased what gun where.
    Act II Step 1:
    Strike a deal with the Republicans. For public consumption, word it as ambiguously as possible… as was the ACA (just pass it and we’ll find out what’s in it) and stuff it into the next Continuing Resolution.
    Step 2: Federalize (“second”) the National Guard of the respective states.
    Step 3: Go door-to-door with your list of gun purchasers, and get access to the guns.
    No gun? Where is it? Who has it? Where’s the paperwork? No gun, no paperwork?
    Sadly, it appears the nationwide cell phone network is down, unless you’re using a government contract cell phone. Yes, surprise is key.

    President Obama Is Finally Changing the Debate on Guns
    The president’s new executive orders on guns may be modest. But they’re also indicative of a shift in the culture.
    By Jamil Smith January 5, 2016 New Republic

    The seditionists who took over a federal building in southeastern Oregon last Saturday now have a moniker. The group, led by two sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, are calling themselves the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom. It is fitting that a name be one of their priorities, since their takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters was partly about what people are called.

    Dwight and Steven Hammond, two ranchers who twice committed arson on federal lands, had been sentenced under a federal anti-terrorism statute. One of the organizers of Saturday’s rally for Hammond supporters—the one that preceded the Bundy militia’s takeover of the Malheur headquarters—told Wesley Lowery of The Washington Post that while they can’t deny the arson, the mandatory five-year sentence was “absolutely egregious.” The protester then added, “These are just country folk, they’re not terrorists.”

    Semantics have played an outsized role in the debate over whether the Bundy boys and their band in Oregon should be classified “terrorists,” given that the facts speak for themselves: They staged an armed takeover of a federal outpost and are threatening violence against any law enforcement officers who might attempt to remove them. But many dismiss them as yokels. Perhaps we’re just that numb to guns.

    It is fascinating and frightening to see these men living out their fantasies of armed rebellion, even on such a microscopic scale. These are fantasies fed chiefly by those who profit the most from American fear and death, both of which bolster gun sales, toxic masculinity, and superficial feelings of personal safety. I’d count not just gun dealers who bypass background checks online and at gun shows in that number, but also the mostly Republican politicians in Washington and nationwide who feed gun culture with dangerous, ahistorical rhetoric about threats to the Second Amendment.

    Fittingly, President Obama has announced a series of new executive actions to single out those profiteers, within Congress and without.

    The actions, the first since his 2013 gun safety orders issued after the Sandy Hook massacre, have four key goals: closing the background check loopholes for firearms purchases, proscribing purchases made by those with serious criminal records and the mentally ill; increasing enforcement of current gun laws; improving gun safety technology; and strengthening mental health treatment and help for domestic violence survivors. To that last point, the Obama administration wants $500 million to “increase access to mental health care,” a direct shot at Republicans who after mass shootings regularly exonerate our perverse gun culture and exacerbate the stigmas placed upon the mentally ill.

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, who implied that Obama’s actions infringe upon the Second Amendment, will likely lead an effort to block that funding in the House, because Obama. That is as good a reason as Republicans ever seem to need, even when wounding themselves politically in the process. Or, even, blocking gun control legislation after 20 small children are massacred in a school. Even though Ryan may even agree with some of the measures the president advocates, there is little reason to expect his party to address this issue seriously.

    But “because Obama” is not the only reason why those Republicans largely follow the bidding of the National Rifle Association and gun sellers, over the pleading of parents and even law-abiding gun owners who support reforms. I get it; moving further right on guns has been a winning strategy. A shooting happens, and people buy more guns. The Democratic president laments said shooting, and people buy more guns. Firearms in America, politically, are thus much like the Trump campaign; no matter how much horror and hypocrisy they engender, they benefit. To boot, the president, a former constitutional law professor whose administration seeks to stem the violence, is demeaned as a guy violating the American way of life.

    There is a certain truth in that, actually. I disagreed with the president to an extent when he said on Tuesday that “we are not inherently more prone to violence” here in America. Carnage is a part of our national DNA, and it does us no favors to deny that. But the key, as he noted, is that “we do not have to accept this carnage as the price of freedom.” Gun culture is inherently American—but as with the definition of “American,” it is not immutable.

    That conviction is why, I suspect, President Obama approached his announcement of his executive actions on Tuesday with the spirit of both a legislator and a community organizer. In addition to implementing policy, he was movement-building.

    Now, in the final full year of his presidency, Obama seems to have found a way to break out of the position to which he was relegated by Republican obstinance: that of Mourner-in-Chief whenever a shooting occurs. Granted, he teared up when recounting the Sandy Hook victims, and movingly recounted how Tennessee teen Zaevion Dobson died saving three young girls from a random shooting spree last month. But he clearly hopes that pairing that grief this time with action, even if it may not make much of a dent in the problem, will inspire citizens to do even more on a state and local front.

    The idea that all gun control has to come on the federal level is a folly, as the president noted Tuesday by citing how Connecticut did right and Missouri did wrong with recent measures. But truly, as even he realizes, the most constant gun problem here in the United States is a cultural one, a sick addiction to dangerous devices we’re told will make us safer and too often serve to steal lives like that of Dobson’s.

    Will these new actions solve America’s most urgent gun problems, namely suicide, shootings in predominantly black communities, and guns in the hands of domestic terrorists like Dylann Roof, Robert Dear, and the Bundys? Will it make movie theaters, churches, and college campuses immune from bullets? Perhaps not, especially in Texas. But it is refreshing to see the gun debate turn away from mourning and semantics and towards policy and shifting the culture.

    It will be compelling to see whether the president makes an even more prominent effort to lead that cultural fight in the coming weeks, as Republicans challenge him on cable news and possibly the courts. When we reflect upon them in years to come, we may find that these Obama actions served us less as policies, and more as a national kick in the ass.

    President Obama said a lot about guns in his teary press conference Tuesday, but the one thing that he is not saying, despite all the howling from the right, is that he intends to take away Americans’ guns. Yet equally significant is the realization that individual citizens are unwilling to free themselves of the destructive weapons that are wreaking havoc on our society. Numerous Americans care more about their individual freedoms than our collective freedoms, and they are unable to see how these individualistic desires undermine the essential fabric of a democracy.

In Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown, Oath Keepers arrived carrying semi-automatic rifles so that they could prevent looters from destroying property, and many of them said that they saw nothing wrong with taking the life of a looter to prevent the destruction of property. They also advocated that Ferguson residents obtain firearms so that they could protect themselves from the police.

    Obama is not going to take away America’s guns.

    President Obama Isn’t Taking People’s Guns—But Maybe He Should
    The Daily Beast 01.07.16

    The president zoomed in on exactly the right point Tuesday: What about the rights of those killed by gun violence to live free from terror?

    President Obama said a lot about guns in his teary press conference Tuesday, but the one thing that he is not saying, despite all the howling from the right, is that he intends to take away Americans’ guns. Yet equally significant is the realization that individual citizens are unwilling to free themselves of the destructive weapons that are wreaking havoc on our society. Numerous Americans care more about their individual freedoms than our collective freedoms, and they are unable to see how these individualistic desires undermine the essential fabric of a democracy.

    This democratic fabric includes the Second Amendment, which has been contorted, misinterpreted, and applied in a way that destroys its intended meaning and threatens the safety and stability of our nation. And as the president pointed out on Tuesday, this grotesque emphasis on the Second Amendment impairs other Americans’ ability to freely exercise many of the other 26 amendments.

    As President Obama forges a lone path toward gun regulation, we must wonder how we as a society have arrived to a point where “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” has morphed into allowing individual citizens to possess firearms for their individual protection with little to no concern about the security of a free state.

    It is well documented that gun sales and gun-related deaths have increased since Obama came into office, but the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller (PDF), which opened the floodgates and redefined the Second Amendment, rarely receives mention.

    The court’s decision in the case went against 70 years of legal interpretations of the Second Amendment that stated in United States v. Miller that the “obvious purpose” of the Second Amendment was to “assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness of” the state militia, and the Amendment “must be interpreted and applied with that end in view.”

    In Heller and then in McDonald v. City of Chicago, the Supreme Court in a pair of 5-4 decisions determined that federal, state, and local governments could not create restrictions that could prevent an individual the right to possess a firearm in the home for self-defense. The intent of the Second Amendment had shifted from allowing citizens to own firearms so that they could band together in an organized and regulated militia run by either local, state, or federal governments to allowing citizens to own guns for their own purposes so long as they fell under the individual’s definition of self-defense.

    Not surprisingly, countless Americans purchased more and more firearms to protect themselves from the “inevitable” moment when the government or “Obama” was going to forcefully take their guns away. Not surprisingly a byproduct of this new interpretation of the Second Amendment has been a rise in unregulated militias or American terrorist groups who challenge the authority of federal, state, and local governments. Ammon Bundy and his posse of men who call themselves the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, who just this week forcefully took over a federal building in Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, are just one such iteration of this emboldened unregulated militia movement in America.

    The Oath Keepers, formed in 2009, are one of the largest unregulated militia movements in the nation, and regularly you can find them injecting themselves unnecessarily into conflicts. In Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown, Oath Keepers arrived carrying semi-automatic rifles so that they could prevent looters from destroying property, and many of them said that they saw nothing wrong with taking the life of a looter to prevent the destruction of property. They also advocated that Ferguson residents obtain firearms so that they could protect themselves from the police.

    Instability, terror, and death are the inevitable outcomes of a heavily armed citizenry, yet in the 1846 case Nunn v. State of Georgia, an integral case that the Supreme Court used in the Heller decision, the state of Georgia—my home state—argued that arming citizens and allowing them to openly carry firearms created a safer environment. And the referencing of this decision only continues the Supreme Court’s idyllic reimagining of America’s Southern states.

    Georgia in 1846 was a slave-holding state where African Americans were counted as three-fifths of a person and were not allowed the right to vote. Firearms at this time were regularly used to keep blacks in line and sustain the South’s racist, oppressive society. Additionally, duels were a regular occurrence in the South during this time period. In this volatile environment, carrying a firearm out in the open actually did bring about stability. The reason for this was that carrying a concealed weapon was illegal. Therefore, the assumption within society was that most white men owned or carried a gun, so being able to see everyone’s gun made it less likely that anyone would be killed by a surprise bullet. Additionally, guns could not be removed from the society because they were needed to oppress, intimidate, and terrorize blacks in the state.

    This was a society whose infrastructure and logic regarding social stability should no longer be applicable to modern society, yet in recent years it has been to disastrous effect. Democracy and valuing human life were not principles that were celebrated in the pre-Civil War South.

    But far from rejecting that old logic, we’ve embraced it, and the application of the South’s antithetical principles have brought instability, danger, and a disregard for human life to rest of the United States. Armed and dangerous and unregulated militias are on the rise, in addition to the numerous lone-wolf attacks that befall schools, offices, shopping centers, and public spaces at a disturbing frequency.

    Right now the Second Amendment is being applied in a way that takes away the rights of thousands of Americans each year. The president must address this crisis, and not only to ensure the safety and stability of the American citizens who are threatened by gun violence. He also must do it to preserve the ideals and institutions that govern our society that are being threatened by the archaic notions of stability from a racist and oppressive society and the unregulated militias of today that openly advocate armed conflict against the government.

    Obama is not going to take away America’s guns. I would argue that he should, as countless Americans have displayed a gross misuse of the social responsibility that comes with gun ownership, except that using force to attempt to disarm people of their firearms might inevitably lead to more violence and bloodshed.

    Gun owners should want to regulate and reduce their gun usage for the greater good, but our society is too consumed with the myopia of employing lethal force to resolve minor disputes that it cannot imagine an environment without widespread gun usage. And countless Americans are unable to see that their gun usage actually jeopardizes the very freedoms and liberties they have chosen to fight for and defend via the barrel of a gun.

    I’m less afraid of the criminals wielding guns in Baltimore, I declared as we discussed the issue, than I am by those permitted gun owners. I know how to stay out of the line of Baltimore’s illegal gunfire; I have the luxury of being white and middle class in a largely segregated city that reserves most of its shootings for poor, black neighborhoods overtaken by “the game.” The closest I typically get to the action is feeling the chest-thumping vibrations of the Foxtrot police helicopter flying overhead in pursuit of someone who might be a few streets over, but might as well be a world away. But I don’t know where the legal gun owners are or how to ensure that their children, no matter how well versed in respecting firearms, won’t one day introduce that weapon to my daughter.

But I don’t know where the legal gun owners are or how to ensure that their children, no matter how well versed in respecting firearms, won’t one day introduce that weapon to my daughter.

    And so, as President Barack Obama announced plans this week to tighten background checks for gun buyers and increase gun tracking and research, I thought, that’s all well and good, but how about adding something immediately useful: a gun owner registry available to the public online — something like those for sex offenders. I’m not equating gun owners with predatory perverts, but the model is helpful here; I want a searchable database I can consult to find out whether my kid can have a play date at your house.

    Before the 33 percent of U.S. households containing a gun (half of which don’t secure them) gets too worked up, they should know that it would likely include many of my relatives and their friends. My parents grew up in small town Minnesota, and hunting was a regular part of their lives before they left for other states, and it still is for many they know. My folks were taught how to handle guns and use them safely. But that doesn’t do much to allay my fears; it’s the simple presence of the weapon in the home and the possibilities it presents that terrify me.
    [..]
    Three years ago, a New York newspaper published a map online showing who owned guns in two counties outside of New York City. The backlash was swift and wide, with the most legitimate complaints being a fear of theft, which the paper said never materialized, and concerns about identifying where law enforcement lived. (I’m willing to compromise by including the officer’s name, but not address, in my database.)

    Do you know the gun owners in your circle?
    Tricia Bishop The Baltimore Sun

    Column: We need a searchable database of gun owners online that we can consult before arranging play dates.
    It’s inevitable when my husband and I visit family these days that the subject of violence in Baltimore comes up. Often, I’m the one who raises it. But when it came up last week on a trip to see my parents in Georgia, I got my back up. I thought of the 11-hour drive south and the billboards we passed along I-81 boasting guns for sale (“A Glock for Christmas”!), and of the story my brother-in-law, who lives in Florida, told of a neighbor stopping by to shoot the breeze in his suburban driveway, a handgun holstered at the man’s waist as their kids played nearby.

    I’m less afraid of the criminals wielding guns in Baltimore, I declared as we discussed the issue, than I am by those permitted gun owners. I know how to stay out of the line of Baltimore’s illegal gunfire; I have the luxury of being white and middle class in a largely segregated city that reserves most of its shootings for poor, black neighborhoods overtaken by “the game.” The closest I typically get to the action is feeling the chest-thumping vibrations of the Foxtrot police helicopter flying overhead in pursuit of someone who might be a few streets over, but might as well be a world away. But I don’t know where the legal gun owners are or how to ensure that their children, no matter how well versed in respecting firearms, won’t one day introduce that weapon to my daughter.

    And so, as President Barack Obama announced plans this week to tighten background checks for gun buyers and increase gun tracking and research, I thought, that’s all well and good, but how about adding something immediately useful: a gun owner registry available to the public online — something like those for sex offenders. I’m not equating gun owners with predatory perverts, but the model is helpful here; I want a searchable database I can consult to find out whether my kid can have a play date at your house.

    Before the 33 percent of U.S. households containing a gun (half of which don’t secure them) gets too worked up, they should know that it would likely include many of my relatives and their friends. My parents grew up in small town Minnesota, and hunting was a regular part of their lives before they left for other states, and it still is for many they know. My folks were taught how to handle guns and use them safely. But that doesn’t do much to allay my fears; it’s the simple presence of the weapon in the home and the possibilities it presents that terrify me.

    U.S. toddlers were accidentally shooting people — including themselves — at the rate of one per week last year. More than 21,000 Americans committed suicide with a firearm in 2014 (nearly twice the number of gun homicides), while 586 people were accidentally killed with guns (10 percent of them age 15 and younger). And most of the guns used in the last 15 unpredictable mass shootings — including San Bernardino; Umpqua, Ore.; and Marysville, Wash., where a 15-year-old used his father’s Beretta to kill four fellow high school students — were purchased legally. The mother of the Umpqua shooter, who killed nine people at a local community college, had even bragged online a decade ago about her son’s “knowledge in this field” of firearms. So much for safety training.
    Obama slams NRA ‘fiction,’ ‘conspiracy’ theories at town hall on guns
    Obama slams NRA ‘fiction,’ ‘conspiracy’ theories at town hall on guns

    My only exposure to guns has been to legal ones. I remember as a teen-ager spending an afternoon with a couple of boys who were showing off after school, firing a family gun in the backyard and play aiming at one another. And I fired a .22 caliber pistol several years ago as a reporter covering handgun-carry regulations in Maryland; I still have the paper target practice sheet taped to my cubicle to flaunt my bullseye. There was a definite rush to handling the weapon, and I could see the attraction of target practice as a hobby. But the risk to owning the gun isn’t worth it to me.

    Guns in the home are far more likely to be used accidentally, in suicides or family disputes than in self defense, according to studies based on anecdotal evidence. (Perhaps Mr. Obama’s improved research will show for sure.) And I’m pretty certain that if I’d had a gun the one time I was the victim of a violent crime (in upstate New York), the outcome would have been a lot worse than it was, with the firearm turned against me in short order. Instead, I was able to scream and break away from a mugger with a dull knife trying to force me into a vacant lot between rowhouses.

    Three years ago, a New York newspaper published a map online showing who owned guns in two counties outside of New York City. The backlash was swift and wide, with the most legitimate complaints being a fear of theft, which the paper said never materialized, and concerns about identifying where law enforcement lived. (I’m willing to compromise by including the officer’s name, but not address, in my database.) Much of the response, though, was made up of comments like this one: “so, should we start wearing yellow Stars of David so the general public can be aware of we are??”

    Gun owners may feel picked on, but they are not a persecuted class. They are individuals who have chosen to keep in their homes an object whose chief purpose is to injure or kill, whether in self defense or otherwise. The rest of us should have a right to know it’s there before we — or our children — enter.

    President Obama said a lot about guns in his teary press conference Tuesday, but the one thing that he is not saying, despite all the howling from the right, is that he intends to take away Americans’ guns. Yet equally significant is the realization that individual citizens are unwilling to free themselves of the destructive weapons that are wreaking havoc on our society. Numerous Americans care more about their individual freedoms than our collective freedoms, and they are unable to see how these individualistic desires undermine the essential fabric of a democracy.

    The Oath Keepers, formed in 2009, are one of the largest unregulated militia movements in the nation, and regularly you can find them injecting themselves unnecessarily into conflicts. In Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown, Oath Keepers arrived carrying semi-automatic rifles so that they could prevent looters from destroying property, and many of them said that they saw nothing wrong with taking the life of a looter to prevent the destruction of property. They also advocated that Ferguson residents obtain firearms so that they could protect themselves from the police.
    [..]
    Obama is not going to take away America’s guns. I would argue that he should, as countless Americans have displayed a gross misuse of the social responsibility that comes with gun ownership, except that using force to attempt to disarm people of their firearms might inevitably lead to more violence and bloodshed.

    It is well documented that gun sales and gun-related deaths have increased since Obama came into office, but the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller (PDF), which opened the floodgates and redefined the Second Amendment, rarely receives mention.

    Not surprisingly, countless Americans purchased more and more firearms to protect themselves from the “inevitable” moment when the government or “Obama” was going to forcefully take their guns away.

    President Obama Isn’t Taking People’s Guns—But Maybe He Should
    The Daily Beast 01.07.16

    The president zoomed in on exactly the right point Tuesday: What about the rights of those killed by gun violence to live free from terror?

    President Obama said a lot about guns in his teary press conference Tuesday, but the one thing that he is not saying, despite all the howling from the right, is that he intends to take away Americans’ guns. Yet equally significant is the realization that individual citizens are unwilling to free themselves of the destructive weapons that are wreaking havoc on our society. Numerous Americans care more about their individual freedoms than our collective freedoms, and they are unable to see how these individualistic desires undermine the essential fabric of a democracy.

    This democratic fabric includes the Second Amendment, which has been contorted, misinterpreted, and applied in a way that destroys its intended meaning and threatens the safety and stability of our nation. And as the president pointed out on Tuesday, this grotesque emphasis on the Second Amendment impairs other Americans’ ability to freely exercise many of the other 26 amendments.

    As President Obama forges a lone path toward gun regulation, we must wonder how we as a society have arrived to a point where “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” has morphed into allowing individual citizens to possess firearms for their individual protection with little to no concern about the security of a free state.

    It is well documented that gun sales and gun-related deaths have increased since Obama came into office, but the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller (PDF), which opened the floodgates and redefined the Second Amendment, rarely receives mention.

    The court’s decision in the case went against 70 years of legal interpretations of the Second Amendment that stated in United States v. Miller that the “obvious purpose” of the Second Amendment was to “assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness of” the state militia, and the Amendment “must be interpreted and applied with that end in view.”

    In Heller and then in McDonald v. City of Chicago, the Supreme Court in a pair of 5-4 decisions determined that federal, state, and local governments could not create restrictions that could prevent an individual the right to possess a firearm in the home for self-defense. The intent of the Second Amendment had shifted from allowing citizens to own firearms so that they could band together in an organized and regulated militia run by either local, state, or federal governments to allowing citizens to own guns for their own purposes so long as they fell under the individual’s definition of self-defense.

    Not surprisingly, countless Americans purchased more and more firearms to protect themselves from the “inevitable” moment when the government or “Obama” was going to forcefully take their guns away. Not surprisingly a byproduct of this new interpretation of the Second Amendment has been a rise in unregulated militias or American terrorist groups who challenge the authority of federal, state, and local governments. Ammon Bundy and his posse of men who call themselves the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, who just this week forcefully took over a federal building in Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, are just one such iteration of this emboldened unregulated militia movement in America.

    The Oath Keepers, formed in 2009, are one of the largest unregulated militia movements in the nation, and regularly you can find them injecting themselves unnecessarily into conflicts. In Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown, Oath Keepers arrived carrying semi-automatic rifles so that they could prevent looters from destroying property, and many of them said that they saw nothing wrong with taking the life of a looter to prevent the destruction of property. They also advocated that Ferguson residents obtain firearms so that they could protect themselves from the police.

    Instability, terror, and death are the inevitable outcomes of a heavily armed citizenry, yet in the 1846 case Nunn v. State of Georgia, an integral case that the Supreme Court used in the Heller decision, the state of Georgia—my home state—argued that arming citizens and allowing them to openly carry firearms created a safer environment. And the referencing of this decision only continues the Supreme Court’s idyllic reimagining of America’s Southern states.

    Georgia in 1846 was a slave-holding state where African Americans were counted as three-fifths of a person and were not allowed the right to vote. Firearms at this time were regularly used to keep blacks in line and sustain the South’s racist, oppressive society. Additionally, duels were a regular occurrence in the South during this time period. In this volatile environment, carrying a firearm out in the open actually did bring about stability. The reason for this was that carrying a concealed weapon was illegal. Therefore, the assumption within society was that most white men owned or carried a gun, so being able to see everyone’s gun made it less likely that anyone would be killed by a surprise bullet. Additionally, guns could not be removed from the society because they were needed to oppress, intimidate, and terrorize blacks in the state.

    This was a society whose infrastructure and logic regarding social stability should no longer be applicable to modern society, yet in recent years it has been to disastrous effect. Democracy and valuing human life were not principles that were celebrated in the pre-Civil War South.

    But far from rejecting that old logic, we’ve embraced it, and the application of the South’s antithetical principles have brought instability, danger, and a disregard for human life to rest of the United States. Armed and dangerous and unregulated militias are on the rise, in addition to the numerous lone-wolf attacks that befall schools, offices, shopping centers, and public spaces at a disturbing frequency.

    Right now the Second Amendment is being applied in a way that takes away the rights of thousands of Americans each year. The president must address this crisis, and not only to ensure the safety and stability of the American citizens who are threatened by gun violence. He also must do it to preserve the ideals and institutions that govern our society that are being threatened by the archaic notions of stability from a racist and oppressive society and the unregulated militias of today that openly advocate armed conflict against the government.

    Obama is not going to take away America’s guns. I would argue that he should, as countless Americans have displayed a gross misuse of the social responsibility that comes with gun ownership, except that using force to attempt to disarm people of their firearms might inevitably lead to more violence and bloodshed.

    Gun owners should want to regulate and reduce their gun usage for the greater good, but our society is too consumed with the myopia of employing lethal force to resolve minor disputes that it cannot imagine an environment without widespread gun usage. And countless Americans are unable to see that their gun usage actually jeopardizes the very freedoms and liberties they have chosen to fight for and defend via the barrel of a gun.

    The NRA, its members and its funders should be shamed for creating a political climate where government fails to act even in the face of the slaughter of children. Politicians who pander to the gun lobby even in the face of the slaughter of children should be held accountable and removed from office at the ballot box.

    Every arrogant, entitled jerk who walks in public with a firearm is making it more possible that some child will think that’s a cool thing to do – and die in the street.

    Every multi-millionaire athlete who carries a handgun into a nightclub, all the rap or hip-hop artists who gratuitously contribute to the celebration of thug culture and every producer and director of film or television who profits from gratuitous violence should be confronted for their complicity.

    Every person who profits from the production and sale of weapons, sponsors gun shows or otherwise advances the profitability of the gun culture shares the responsibility for the deaths of children.

    Can’t We Just Put the Damn Guns Down?
    Steve Nelson January 8, 2016 Huffington post
    12 year-old Tamir Rice, shot dead on a playground and, once again, a grand jury finds insufficient cause to indict.

    Yes, the shooting seems indefensible. An “unarmed” 12 year-old boy was shot dead by a cop, apparently an intemperate cop, based on his history. It is not possible to consider this case without considering the national pattern: Cover-ups; injustice in case after case; the way white cops see black boys; stereotypes; racism; cool, calculated indifference.

    But these factors cannot be the sole or dominant considerations in a legal decision. Racism and injustice must be considered as context within which alleged acts occur, but it is also plausible that the police officer in any particular case is not criminally liable.

    The evidence indicates that the police officer in Cleveland had reason to be fearful. Tamir Rice was allegedly carrying an airsoft replica gun. These “toys” are designed to appear as realistic as possible. Perhaps the officer was both a bad, racist cop and he was justified in his fear. That is the discomfort a just society must hold: That racism and injustice are systemic, structural and ubiquitous and yet a particular decision within a racist system may still be just.

    We must deal with the reality that our society created both the trigger-happy cop and the boy he shot, who apparently thought it was cool to carry around a gun that looked like the real thing. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not blaming Tamir Rice for his own death. I’m blaming the rest of us for not speaking out or acting to change our violent, gun-saturated society.

    We should hold folks responsible for feeding this culture of entitlement, aggression and self-determination.

    We must confront the police departments in America that view their black constituents as “the other” rather than as their neighbors.

    The designers, manufacturers and marketers who fashion video “games” that glamorize guns and violence hold responsibility for the disintegration of civility and the callouses that have grown on young folks’ souls.

    The NRA, its members and its funders should be shamed for creating a political climate where government fails to act even in the face of the slaughter of children. Politicians who pander to the gun lobby even in the face of the slaughter of children should be held accountable and removed from office at the ballot box.

    Every arrogant, entitled jerk who walks in public with a firearm is making it more possible that some child will think that’s a cool thing to do – and die in the street.

    Every multi-millionaire athlete who carries a handgun into a nightclub, all the rap or hip-hop artists who gratuitously contribute to the celebration of thug culture and every producer and director of film or television who profits from gratuitous violence should be confronted for their complicity.

    Every person who profits from the production and sale of weapons, sponsors gun shows or otherwise advances the profitability of the gun culture shares the responsibility for the deaths of children.

    And the parents and caregivers who purchase or allow their little boys or girls to purchase “toys” that replicate killing devices should get their minds right. While no child should be shot for carrying around a relatively harmless weapon, no child needs to carry around a relatively harmless weapon.

    I could go on.

    I suppose this piece will anger nearly everyone. My progressive partners in anti-racist work will likely be disappointed that I don’t simply join in the understandable outrage. And the usual suspects will come out from under their rocks to lecture me about the Second Amendment or to trot out some arcane statistics that purport to disprove any link between violent images and subsequent violence.

    Armed thugs defy the government in a wildlife refuge in Oregon. There is a shooting on a campus more than once a week. As I wrote this post, a news report flashed across my screen that a 15 year-old girl shot her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. Horrible icons like Columbine, Sandy Hook and San Bernardino are just the slaughters that were of sufficient scale to keep our national attention for more than a day or two.

    I’ve just had enough with guns – all of them – in the hands of police, in the hands of children, in the hands of crazy white men in Oregon. Forget the Second Amendment or the grand jury decisions. Can’t we just put the damn guns down?

    Victim’s father: Obama’s gun actions won’t make a dent
    By Elliot Fineman January 8, 2016
    (CNN)On Thursday night, Anderson Cooper will host a town hall meeting with President Barack Obama about “Guns in America.” This is part of Obama’s sincere and heartfelt effort to reduce gun violence through executive actions, which he announced on Tuesday.

    I applaud the President’s intentions and thinking, but I’m afraid his plans won’t do much to change things. Republican obstructionism will likely tie his new gun actions up in court and delay implementation as was the case with his immigration executive orders. And, even if the actions are implemented, they will do little or nothing to reduce gun violence.
    [..]

    These actions are largely symbolic because they won’t really solve the problem. Let’s look at the details:

    The past 15 mass shooters all passed their background checks.

    Closing private sales loopholes and forcing gun sellers to be licensed and conduct background checks ignores the disturbing fact that the vast majority of mass shooters pass their background checks and are legal gun owners. The macabre list is quite long and includes recent as well as decade-old mass shootings. Hiring more FBI agents to process background checks will not solve the problem.

    When the initial Brady Background Check Bill (Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act) was enacted in 1993, the drafters agreed to make reporting of prohibited gun purchasers by states optional. It is still not mandatory. As a result, studies show that 90% of state mental health records that should be in the database of prohibited purchasers are not.

    It’s the guns — not mental disability — that leads to massacres.

    While expanding mental health support and treatment is a meaningful and important social goal, it has nothing to do with reducing the gun violence epidemic. This is a “red herring” raised by the NRA and pro-gun extremists to distract us every time there is a mass murderer.

    The reality is that other developed countries (e.g., England, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Canada and Japan) have about the same percentage of people with mental disabilities as the United States. Yet the people with mental disabilities in those countries are not committing gun massacres. Why?

    Because those countries have sane gun laws and the people with mental disabilities cannot get their hands on the guns. It’s not mental disability that leads to our gun massacres as the NRA would have us believe — it is the guns.

    How can guns be kept from people with mental disabilities? By conducting real background checks that include interviews with people who know the purchaser (family, neighbors, local police) and with the purchaser himself.

    Not only are real background checks conducted in other countries, they are also used in the United States for machine gun purchases. This is gun control the United State has practiced for decades — and it works. When was the last time you heard of a machine gun mass murder? Or a mentally disabled person using a machine gun to commit mass atrocities?

    The gun lobby has blocked gun violence research by the CDC, a computerized crime gun database at the ATF and a registry of gun owners so that we can identify people who have become unstable or radicalized since buying their guns.

    The NRA’s blockade of such vital information ironically gives Obama the authority to invoke the National Emergencies Act, which is justified when the government lacks the procedures and capacity to address an unchecked natural or man-made public health epidemic.

    So, what should Obama do?

    The President needs executive actions that cannot be obstructed by Congress. That’s only possible under a declared National State of Emergency for the Gun Violence Epidemic.

    It is clear why a National State of Emergency scares the gun lobby and pro-gun lawmakers — it would neutralize them. My organization is encouraging a petition. As we tune in to CNN’s town hall meeting with Obama, here are my questions. What are yours?

    1) Gun violence is a raging epidemic claiming 30,000 lives per year at a cost of $229 billion per year. Why have you not declared a state of emergency to halt the Gun Violence Epidemic?

    2) Since the government is the largest purchaser of firearms, why not force the gun manufacturers to make smart guns (guns that will only fire if the fingerprint of the owner matches the trigger) by requiring that the government only purchase smart guns?

And, even if the actions are implemented, they will do little or nothing to reduce gun violence.

    I speak as a parent who lost a child and a gun control advocate. My only son, Michael, was murdered on December 30, 2006, while having dinner with his wife in a restaurant in San Diego. His killer, despite having twice been in mental institutions, was legally able to buy the gun that took Michael’s life.

    My son’s death shattered my life. When I could function again, I decided to focus all my attention to help prevent other parents and families from going through the same unending horror. I founded an organization to combat gun violence.

    Obama’s executive orders include closing portions of the gun show loophole by requiring more sellers of guns to be licensed and do background checks, expanding funding to enforce current gun laws and increase resources for mental health care.

    If the President were that guy, then all the anger and distrust (and outright disrespect) directed at him would make sense.

    But it doesn’t, because he isn’t.

    Thursday’s town hall meeting on guns in America was a stark example of how out of proportion the right’s feelings are to what the President is actually doing, or to what he might want to do, or to even what he says at all about pretty much anything.

    When I heard President Obama was having the meeting, I was kind of happy for him. I thought, “He does well in those situations.” I pictured President Obama standing in the middle of a semicircle of people, with that whole no-suit-jacket-or-tie-with-his-top-button-of-his-dress-shirt-undone-and-his-sleeves-rolled-up — that whole “Let’s get to work!” — look that he likes to sport at times.

    In those situations he is at his best: relaxed, funny, off the cuff, thoughtful and smart, like your favorite substitute teacher.

    “He will be able to knock this out of the park,” I thought. But the moment the town hall began I knew he was in trouble.

    It felt more like a deposition than a town hall meeting. It felt more like President Obama was testifying in his own defense and his alibi was falling apart. And why was that? All the President wants is fewer Americans to die from gun violence. That shouldn’t be a controversial opinion.

    But it is controversial to many on the right, because the President himself is controversial. His very existence is problematic. He himself doesn’t makes sense to the right, so they don’t trust him.
    How the conversation continued after the guns town hall

    Seven years into the Obama presidency the right feels the same way about President Obama as I would if I woke up tomorrow and a talking horse were president. I’d be like, “Seriously? This horse is the president? Well, that just doesn’t make any sense. Lemme see that horse’s papers. I know I saw them before, but I just want to see them one more time.”

    The big difference between me and the right is that after seven years of the Mr. Ed presidency I think I would start to settle in and believe it was true. But to the loudest members of the GOP, something still doesn’t feel right about this Obama character being President. So they can’t trust anything that comes out of his mouth. And they feel like they have to do something.
    Obama's new gun rules don't mean your doctor will rat you out
    Your doctor won’t rat you out

    And that brings us to all these guns. For me, this boils down to a few questions:

    Gun owners, how many different ways and/or times does President Obama have to say that he doesn’t want to take your guns away? Is there a specific way he needs to say it? Because if there is, then just tell him and I’m betting he will hold a press conference immediately and say it that way.

    Or is there a number you all have in your head, and once he hits it you will stop pretending like he’s never said it? Can you tell us what the number is? Or at least can you tell us if President Obama is close to hitting the number? Because if he is, again, I’m pretty sure the President would clear his schedule and just spend the next few weeks saying, “I don’t want to take your guns away” over and over until he hits the magic number.

    And then we could all have a productive discussion about how to solve the problem of America doing nothing when innocent people die for no reason due to guns being held by the people who kill people.

    So Thursday night, instead of having a productive and engaging discussion about how to have fewer parents learning from a phone call that their children have been murdered at school, President Obama was mostly on trial for a crime he didn’t commit: stealing our Second Amendment rights.

    And let me be clear, this would be a great week for President Obama to be on trial. Not about guns, but about his administration raiding the homes of undocumented Central American refugees and then deporting them back to the countries they fled for fear of violence in the first place.

    You would think that between not taking people’s guns away and deporting undocumented people, President Obama would be a favorite of conservatives this week. He should be the leading GOP candidate for President with this record, but no. They still can’t get past the fact he is the President in the first place — twice.

    And let me be clear about something else, gun owners. I want President Obama to want to take your guns away. I don’t trust you with your guns. I don’t trust you to fire them safely. I don’t trust you to store them safely. I don’t trust your kids not to find them. I don’t trust you not to get them stolen.

    I don’t trust you not to issue a blanket blame of everyone with mental health issues every time there is a mass shooting, even though we all know that for the most part people with mental health issues are only dangerous to a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

    And frankly, I don’t trust you not to shoot me with your guns for no reason. But that’s just me, and my friends and family.

    But it certainly isn’t President Obama. So stop pretending that it is.

    The longer you gun owners do pretend the President wants your guns, the more innocent people die, because you can’t get past your disbelief that Obama is the President long enough to have a conversation that would save people’s lives.

    Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.

    [Chilling, Real 911 Call] Woman Attacked//No Police to Help
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTy1QstL5jQ

    911 Dispatcher Tells Woman About To Be Sexually Assaulted There Are No Cops To Help Her Due To Budget Cuts
    JOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore. (CBS Seattle) — An Oregon woman was told by a 911 dispatcher that authorities wouldn’t be able be able to help her as her ex-boyfriend broke into her place because of budget cuts.

    Oregon Public Radio reports that an unidentified woman called 911 during a weekend in August 2012 while Michael Bellah was breaking into her place. Her call was forwarded to Oregon State Police because of lay-offs at the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office only allows the department to be open Monday through Friday.

    “Uh, I don’t have anybody to send out there,” the 911 dispatcher told the woman. “You know, obviously, if he comes inside the residence and assaults you, can you ask him to go away? Do you know if he’s intoxicated or anything?”

    The woman told the dispatcher that Bellah previously attacked her and left her hospitalized a few weeks prior to the latest incident. The dispatcher stayed on the phone with the woman for more than 10 minutes before the sexual assault took place.
    Police say Bellah choked the woman and sexually assaulted her. He was arrested by Oregon State Police following the incident.

    PREVENTING GUN VIOLENCE THROUGH EFFECTIVE MESSAGING
    HIGH-PROFILE GUN VIOLENCE INCIDENTS
    OVERVIEW
    #1:DON’T HESITATE TO SPEAK OUT.
    The truth is, the most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak.
    #3:DON’T ASSUME THE FACTS – AND DON’T WAIT FOR THEM
    Experience tells us that the specific facts of a high-profile gun incident are revealed over time. If we jump to conclusions about those details, we could find ourselves at odds with reality as events unfold.
    So, the smartest thing to do is avoid linking our message and arguments to any one set of partially-revealed facts.
    #8:DON’T LET POLICYSPEAK DRAIN THE EMOTION FROM THE MOMENT.
    There is often a compelling case to be made for immediate action, pivoting from the emotion of a high-profile incident to calls for legislative action or specific policy changes. Those who seek to make that pivot have to be careful not to drain the emotional power out of the moment. An emotionally-driven conversation about what can be done to prevent incidents such as the one at hand is engaging.

    State’s SAFE Act needs to set its sights on compliance
    Bill Nojay January 12, 2016

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo claims his anti-gun law, known as the SAFE Act, is “the toughest in the nation,” but on its three-year anniversary this Thursday it’s looking more like a monumental failure.

    The governor claims his law bans sales of military-style assault weapons. Yet today you can walk into any gun store in New York and walk out with essentially the same kind of gun he intended to ban. The industry has reacted to the law by simply redesigning the guns to avoid the features the law prohibits and which Cuomo apparently believed made them more lethal.

    Worse, for those who prefer their firearms in their original design, a thriving black market has emerged with guns brought into New York from other states by aspiring small (and illegally operating) businessmen.

    Like other unpopular laws such as Prohibition and the 55 mph speed limit, the SAFE Act is not obeyed by a vast majority of citizens who should be complying with it. Cuomo has succeeded in creating an underground market where there was none before.

    Between the redesigned firearms sold legally in local gun stores and old-style guns sold illegally out of car trunks, there are probably many more assault weapons in New York state today than when the SAFE Act was passed three years ago. Cuomo’s signature gun law has had no discernible impact on the numbers or availability of guns in New York.

    Mrs. Clinton, This Is What Australian Gun Control Looks Like http://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2015/12/28/mrs-clinton-this-is-what-australian-gun-control-looks-like/

    Mrs. Clinton, This Is What Australian Gun Control Looks Like
    http://d2koukbxsp65hy.cloudfront.net/media/1534427/aff_ila_australian-gun-control-from-magazine.jpg?preset=article
    How far is Clinton willing to push this theme? The answer to that question came days later, during an Oct. 16 “town hall” meeting in New Hampshire. An audience member mentioned how Australia had managed to “take away tens of thousands, millions of handguns. And in one year, they were all gone.” As Hillary nodded approvingly, the man asked, “Can we do that? If we can’t, why can’t we?”

    As a graduate of a Yale Law School and former senior official in the U.S. government, Clinton knew the correct answer to the question. We cannot do that because this is the United States. Unlike Australians, the American people have a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms. Erasing any doubt, the U.S. Supreme Court has twice confirmed that the Second Amendment protects the individual right to own handguns.

    But Clinton instead gave the wrong—and shockingly honest—answer to the question, praising the Australian paradigm. “[B]y offering to buy back those guns,” she said, “they were able to curtail the supply and set a different standard for gun purchases in the future.” She then said such a program would be “worth considering” for this country: “I do not know enough detail to tell you how we would do it, or how it would work, but certainly your example is worth looking at.”

    Rather, to paraphrase movie mobster Vito Corleone, Australian gun owners faced an offer they could not refuse. They had the “choice” to accept reimbursement and relinquish guns they had previously been forced to register, or they could risk forcible confiscation of their property and imprisonment.

    Australia’s national program followed an earlier mandate that had occurred in its state of Victoria. A public service announcement published in Victoria could not have been clearer about the consequences of non-compliance. It mockingly portrayed several men in a prison shower and warned, “This is your last chance.” Violators, the ad stated, faced “severe penalties that could include humiliating public arrest, a criminal conviction” and “up to 12 months in prison.”

    Like that shocking ad, Clinton’s comments were unmistakably clear. Given the chance, she would be eager to declare your legally obtained firearms contraband and force you to turn them in, perhaps for a pittance that would come out of your own taxes, anyway.

    And it’s not just Clinton. In early October, Obama himself mentioned Australia and the United Kingdom (which also had an enforced gun surrender program) as modeling the correct approach. They “have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings,” the president lectured. They prove “there are ways to prevent it.” What he didn’t mention was “the way” Australia and the U.K. were forcing people to disarm.

    Governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then wiped them from the face of the earth.
    This is the true story of Gun control from around the world, especially in the 20th century. It details how governments have ALWAYS BEEN the biggest threat to the safety, security and prosperity of the people. While Americans can see how this could happen in other countries, most can’t EVER imaging it being able to happen here because there are so many rights guaranteed by the constitution. But that ONLY when the people STAND UP for those rights, because it’s the nature of government to constantly try and TAKE them away from us.

    Yes, The Australian Model On Gun Control Means Bans and Confiscation
    http://media.townhall.com/townhall/reu/ha/uploads/2016/1/27/10.png
    Nobody wants to take your guns. That’s what most mainstream pro-gun control Democrats say ad nauseam at various rallies. There’s also the “I support the Second Amendment, but…” that advocates of gun control say prior to offering some pie-in-the-sky policy proposals that usually venture into bans on so-called assault rifles, limiting magazine sizes, or an all-out ban on semi-automatic firearms. That’s essentially a gun ban.

    Both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama have praised the Australian-model of gun control, which the National Rifle Association decided to explain at length in a recent video. It deals with gun buybacks, confiscation, and bans. Oh, and personal protection isn’t a sufficient reason to own firearms down under.

    Australia Means Bans & Confiscation.
    https://youtu.be/aHGit3zF808

    The clip also includes the president invoking the United Kingdom as well. According to the Library of Congress, their laws are just as strict, and unconstitutional if applied here in the U.S.

    It’s no wonder why the firearms industry is on “alert” this year. Any gun owner or Second Amendment supporter who hears a politician praise UK or Australian-style gun control should look at someone else. Moreover, it’s grossly unconstitutional, but that doesn’t mean Democrats, anti-gunners, and their allies in the liberal media will push a like-minded agenda. Right now, Democrats are trying to lay the groundwork for people to sue gun manufacturers out of existence. It has no chance of passing, but the fact remains; we have to be vigilant regarding the protection of our gun rights and heritage.

    Obama doesn’t want to take your guns…honest!
    If Americans have learned anything about the zealots who claim to seek “common sense” solutions to the non-existent epidemic of gun violence it’s that they will never be satisfied until Big Brother has stripped every law abiding gun owner of every weapon.

    Last week, Coach is Right published “Nobody Wants to Take Your Guns,” an article which reveals the true intentions of 2nd Amendment foes from the late Senator John Chafee to Handgun Control Inc

    During a recent appearance on Boston Public Radio (WGBH), Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans said:

    “For the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun, nobody needs a rifle and… especially here in the city I want to have discretion over who’s getting any type of gun because public safety is my main concern.”

    Evans puts the arrogance of the left on full display as he presumes to decide what gun owners need and what, if anything, they should be permitted to have. Imagine the outcry should a conservative claim the authority to decide whether liberals need to speak and what, if anything, they should be permitted to say! What? Treat First Amendment rights with the same degree of contempt liberals have for our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms?

    Most Americans have caught on to the fabrications of our Liar in Chief as he declares his respect for the 2nd Amendment. During his campaign against John McCain, Obama said “I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.” Some three weeks ago, the left succumbed to a state of rapture over Obama’s shedding of crocodile tears as he announced his Executive Orders against gun ownership. Even so, few Americans were fooled when he told his audience, “I believe in the 2nd Amendment.”

    Yet Obama never tires of proclaiming his appreciation for the right to keep and bear arms. Do his actions mirror his words?

    During his political life, Obama:

    • supported legislation to “close the gun show loophole” which would have imprisoned show organizers if a single person at a show offered a gun for sale privately.

    • opposed a bill in the Illinois legislature which would have protected homeowners from weapons charges if they used an “illegal” gun in self-defense.

    • voted to ban gun stores within five miles of a school or park, which would have eliminated most gun stores in America.

    • proposed to make it a felony for a gun owner whose firearm was stolen from his residence which caused harm to another person if that weapon was not securely stored in that home.”

    • supported a federal ban on concealed carry laws. As a Presidential candidate he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review “‘I am not in favor of concealed weapons,’ as ‘I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations.’”

    Obama also said he believes in the “common-sense” gun laws of Australia and England, which required mass confiscation and gun bans.

    Examples of Barack’s deeds not supporting his pro-2nd Amendment claims go on and on. Yet he keeps telling the same obvious lies. Does he really believe the American people are that stupid?

    Yet Obama never tires of proclaiming his appreciation for the right to keep and bear arms. Do his actions mirror his words?

    During his political life, Obama:

    • supported legislation to “close the gun show loophole” which would have imprisoned show organizers if a single person at a show offered a gun for sale privately.

    • opposed a bill in the Illinois legislature which would have protected homeowners from weapons charges if they used an “illegal” gun in self-defense.

    • voted to ban gun stores within five miles of a school or park, which would have eliminated most gun stores in America.

    • proposed to make it a felony for a gun owner whose firearm was stolen from his residence which caused harm to another person if that weapon was not securely stored in that home.”

    • supported a federal ban on concealed carry laws. As a Presidential candidate he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review “‘I am not in favor of concealed weapons,’ as ‘I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations.’”

    Obama also said he believes in the “common-sense” gun laws of Australia and England, which required mass confiscation and gun bans.

    Examples of Barack’s deeds not supporting his pro-2nd Amendment claims go on and on. Yet he keeps telling the same obvious lies. Does he really believe the American people are that stupid?

    This and other issues bring up what should familiar to all of those wishing to preserve Liberty, that is the #GunGrabber2Step

    With each new ‘serious crisis’ the gun grabbers follow a tried and true method of incrementally destroying your Commonsense Civil Right of Armed self-defense.

    1. At the onset of ‘serious crisis’ the gun grabbers will be everywhere pushing the ‘easy access to guns’ LIE. And they try to get whatever they can in light of the ‘serious crisis’.
    Intergalactic Background Checks, magazine restrictions, terror watch list restrictions, etc.

    2. Whatever they get no matter how sweeping and onerous, it will be characterized as ‘only a first step’ and they reset the whole process awaiting the next ‘serious crisis’ and they once again return to step number 1.

    It doesn’t matter how much they have destroyed our Commonsense Civil Right of Armed self-defense, each new ‘serious crisis’ will always be a pretext to destroy those rights even further..

    Keep in mind the Gun grabber’s favorite tactic:

    Pretending Gun laws don’t exist and each time new laws are added to the old they reset their rhetoric.

    This is exemplified by when they Lie and spout items like the “Easy access to guns” or “it’s easier to buy guns than it is to buy vegetables”

    Thus they can make the factious claim that the 2nd amendment has been infringed upon each time steal away a little bit more of our Freedom……

    Deputies: CWP holder injures Spartanburg Co. nightclub shooting suspect
    LYMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) –

    Deputies with Spartanburg County said a man faces multiple attempted murder charges after opening fire outside a nightclub early Sunday morning.

    The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. at Playoffz nightclub on Inman Road in Lyman.

    Deputies said 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson pulled out a gun after getting into an argument with another man and fired several rounds toward a crowd that had gathered out in front of the club.

    “His rounds struck three victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg,” Lt. Kevin Bobo said.

    Bobo said the man who shot Thompson has a valid concealed weapons permit, cooperated with investigators, and won’t be facing any charges.

    Thompson was charged with four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

    French Lessons
    France is about as close to a national gun-free zone as you can get. Lesson number one from France is that gun laws will not stop jihad terror.

    There are no gun show loopholes in France, because there are no gun shows. There are no mandatory waiting periods, and there is no debate about gun control. Everybody agrees that guns are bad, so only the police have them. Or at least that was the plan. But of course the people who don’t obey laws have guns. They are called criminals. Lately a lot of them happen to be Jihadis.

    Banning firearms as a way of preventing jihadi terror pretends that jihadis (and others), suddenly unable to find firearms, will give up on their plans. History says otherwise. There will still be black market firearms. And banning legal firearms makes it very unlikely that civilians under attack will be able to defend themselves.

    Trying to prevent jihadis from acquiring weapons by passing laws that outlaw weapons misses two points: they will ignore these laws and get the prohibited weapons anyway, or they will find things that can be used as weapons. Wasn’t that the “tactical” lesson of 9/11?

    After 9/11 when the U.S. government created more government (DHS, TSA, ODNI) in response to jihadi terrorism and then began confiscating weapons from airline passengers – scissors, tweezers, nail clippers – rumor had it that the Israelis thought we were crazy. Our attempts to interdict weapons rather than those who would use them seemed counterintuitive to good counterterrorism. All these years later and another president is still chasing weapons.

    This video is an excellent history lesson. Especially instructive is the part where Dan lays bare the lie that “nobody is saying” they want to take away your guns. They are saying that, and they have been saying that for a long time.

    The Second Amendment is the real battle this election and the real issue behind the next SCOTUS appointment. Everything else comes second.

    While Hillary Is Recovering From Her Collapse, Her “Australian Model” Gun Control is Collapsing “Down Under” http://bearingarms.com/bob-o/2016/09/14/hillary-recovering-collapse-australian-model-gun-control-collapsing/ via @BearingArmsCom

    While Hillary Is Recovering From Her Collapse, Her “Australian Model” Gun Control is Collapsing “Down Under”
    While campaigning earlier this year, a pre-collapse Hillary Clinton espoused support for the mandatory gun registration and and confiscation scheme forced on the Australian people 20 years ago after the Port Arthur massacre.

    The thing is, Australia’s gun control scheme simply isn’t working. Actually, that’s not accurate. It’s not only “not working,” it’s an utter train wreck.

    The facts are chilling and compelling. In as little as five years, gun crimes have more than doubled. Some very dangerous people are involved; in 2015 alone, more than 750 people with serious criminal convictions were caught carrying guns. That’s up a staggering five times since 2011. Shootings have literally become a weekly event. Crimes related to firearm possession have more than doubled in the past five years. The number of young criminals has rocketed; almost 1500 people aged between 20 and 34 committed a gun offence last year, more than twice the number five years ago. A culture of carrying, and using, guns is becoming worryingly entrenched in criminal circles.

    Gun control only affects those people who hold the opinion that their government is legitimate and that the laws they pass should be obeyed. That’s more of a double-edged sword than people commonly realize.

    Violent criminals view firearms as a necessary tool of the trade, and they will not obey any gun laws simply as a matter of who they are. Gun laws are therefore ineffective in stopping them. If anything, these laws encourage criminals to horde firearms, as they then have increased power over law-abiding citizens.

    And there’s the rub.

    When law-abiding citizens discover that laws serve to help criminals and hurt good people, they then begin to devalue not just the laws, but the legitimacy of government itself.

    They then start questioning the government and the laws, and begin to adhering to laws much more subjectively. Eventually, it leads to an “Irish Democracy“, where millions of ordinary people decide that their government simply isn’t relevant… and then when enough feel that way, they effectively aren’t.

    Then governments fall.

    Gun Control Part I: Liberal Ignorance and the Founders’ True Intent
    http://www.glennbeck.com/2016/09/27/gun-control-part-i-liberal-ignorance-and-the-founders-true-intent/?

    Gun Control Part I: Liberal Ignorance and the Founders’ True Intent
    The constitutional right of Americans to own guns is under attack like never before. Yet the Framers found this right important enough to list second in the Bill of Rights:

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The Founding Fathers believed self-defense was a Biblical right to ensure citizens could defend themselves against any kind of illegal force — from a neighbor, an outsider or their own government.

    The anti-Second Amendment crowd believes they can regulate gun ownership based on the words “well regulated,” but that intentionally ignores the Founders’ meaning. It actually means well trained and prepared. However, regulation is exactly how they’ll infringe on your Second Amendment rights. With 300 million guns currently owned by American citizens, it’s not likely they’ll be rounded up by some government agency. Instead, progressive liberals will do what they do best: apply massive regulations to drastically reduce your ability to purchase or own a firearm.

    Gun Control Part I: Liberal Ignorance and the Founders’ True Intent
    The ignorant statements of progressive politicians who oppose the Second Amendment would be funny if they weren’t so deadly serious:

    I actually don’t know what a barrel shroud is. I believe it’s a shoulder thing that goes up.
    This right here has the ability with a 30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.
    For most purposes, having these . . . these . . . these magazine clips that have more than 15 rounds in them, there’s really no purpose for those, except for shooting targets or shooting people.
    We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks more than three rounds, and yet it’s legal to hunt humans.

    Actually, no, it isn’t legal to hunt humans in any state. That would be considered murder. To craft the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, America’s Founders studied thousands of years’ of the best knowledge mankind had to offer. They believed the right to self-defense was a fundamental God-given right that existed long before the creation of any government. In fact, written documents pertaining to self-preservation predate the Second Amendment by thousands of years. More than anything else, the Second Amendment was intended for protection against a tyrannical government. Because of their own experiences with tyranny, the Founders provided the means by which the people could rise up and defend their liberty, if ever needed.

    Court Judge: ‘No One Should Have’ Guns – ‘Not Police, Not Security’
    According to Oregonlive.com, circuit court judge Kenneth Walker of Multnomah County, Ore. decided to go on a tangent about gun control during a criminal sentencing on Monday.

    “If I could, I would take all the guns in America, put them on big barges and go dump them in the ocean,” the judge said. “Nobody would have a gun. Not police, not security, not anybody. We should eliminate all of them.”

    http://www.mrctv.org/videos/ore-judge-no-one-should-have-guns-not-police-not-security

    “They are a scourge of this country and no one should have one as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “There’s no defense to guns. There’s just absolutely no reason to have them. But it is a right of people in this country to own and possess them, and I will not say anything to affect that right.”

    Serial: The History of Gun Control (Part 4 of 4) by The Glenn Beck Program via #soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/glennbeck/serial-the-history-of-gun-control-part-4-of-4?
    If Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have never advocated taking guns from responsible gun owners, then why do they both keep suggesting that we could use, as a model for the United States, the gun laws in Britain and Australia? Two countries that have taken guns out of the hands of responsible gun owners.

    For American citizens that don’t believe that confiscation can happen in the United States of America, here’s a clue: It already has.
    This is where America is today in the battle to retain its Second Amendment rights. One slipup from a Second Amendment supporter brings widespread condemnation and ridicule from the media. But an anti-gun president of the United States can claim that your 14-year-old is more likely to have a fully automatic Glock, G20, on their nightstand than a heartwarming copy of The Fault in Our Stars. The first step is knowing there is an ongoing attack.

    And while progressives certainly have contempt for the Second Amendment, they also know that the vast majority of Americans cherish the Constitution, including, if not especially, the Second Amendment. So progressive politicians continue to walk the fine line between appearing to support the Constitution, while at the same time desperately trying to curtail or eliminate American citizens’ gun rights. The only way to stop them is with an informed, vigilant, and active citizenry.

    Self defense as a natural born right – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2016/10/04/self-defense-natural-born-right/

    Self defense as a natural born right
    Dave Boyer raised some interesting questions at the Washington Times yesterday while highlighting the expanded popularity of Constitutional Carry laws in the United States. This welcome trend is expanding in the more sane portions of the country and for at least some observers it seems to be a result of the recognition that crime is back on the rise and the right to self defense should be considered a natural right along with all the others.

    Amid the rising number of Americans licensed to carry a concealed handgun, more states are passing laws that don’t require a permit to carry firearms, embracing the view that self-defense is a “natural born” right.

    Missouri became the fourth state this year to approve a so-called “constitutional carry” law when Republican legislators overrode a veto by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon on Sept. 15, making permitless carry legal. West Virginia, Mississippi and Idaho also have adopted constitutional carry laws in 2016, bringing the total number of such states to 12.

    Commenting on the violence and self defense angle was Tim Schmidt, president of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association in West Bend, Wisconsin. He notes that if the Second Amendment truly affirms a natural-born right, you shouldn’t have to ask the government for permission before you engage in it.

    Mr. Schmidt, whose for-profit company offers training, education and firearms liability insurance policies, said President Obama’s efforts at imposing gun control regulations, combined with an uptick in violent crime across the U.S., are aiding the rise in people carrying firearms.

    “I certainly think it’s helped,” he said of Mr. Obama’s agenda. “It’s the whole fear thing — everybody’s afraid he’s going to pass some action and take the guns away, so they go to the store and buy more.”

    The FBI’s latest annual report showed violent crime in the U.S. rose about 4 percent in 2015, including an 11 percent rise in homicides.

    We are regularly reminded that all of our rights – even those of free speech and religion – have limits and that’s basically true. But unlike the treatment of the right to keep, and more importantly bear arms, you don’t need to check in with the government before you begin exercising them. You don’t need a permit to speak in the public square and someone will be along presently to remind you that you’ve overstepped your bounds if you wind up falsely shouting “Fire!” in a movie theater. There is no license required to go check out all the local churches when you move to a new town… you just do it.

    So how is it that a person who has never broken a single law still needs a permit before getting a gun? It says right in the Constitution that your right to do so shall not be infringed. If you abuse that right then we can forbid you from having firearms, but until that point shouldn’t it be a “natural born right” in the same sense?

    Naysayers will point to the need to be able to prevent those who have forfeited that right from obtaining guns, but why is that even an issue? Once you’ve broken the law and lost your gun rights your name goes on a list. We keep all sorts of lists of that type, including sex offenders. When you go to purchase a gun, the background check should be as simple as checking to make sure your name isn’t on the naughty list and if it’s not then you make your purchase. It really doesn’t seem like it should be that complicated.

    “I Respect The Second Amendment, But…” Clinton’s Views On Gun Control Are Most Radical Ever
    Democrat Presidential candidate made it very clear last night that she intends to put anti-gun Justices on the Supreme Court if she is elected President.

    Hillary Clinton vowed Sunday evening that she would nominate Supreme Court justices who agree with her on the need for stricter gun laws.

    “I respect the Second Amendment, but I believe that there should be comprehensive background checks,” the Democratic nominee said Sunday, “and we should close the gun show loophole and close the online loophole we have to save as many lives as we possibly can.”

    There is, of course, no “gun shop loophole.”

    Gun dealers (federal firearms licensees, or FFLs) are required to conduct background checks wherever they sell firearms, including at gun shows.

    Likewise, there is no “online loophole” due to the same federal laws.

    Firearms purchased “online” only have the money transferred online. The guns themselves must be shipped to a gun dealer, who must conduct a background check before transferring the gun to the would-be purchaser.

    What Clinton wants is to outlaw the private sale or transfer (including borrowing) of firearms between law-abiding citizens, including friends and family members.

    The real purpose behind “universal” background checks is a de facto gun registration scheme. By imposing a requirement that all transfers must go through the federal government, databases would establish precisely who has firearms in the United States, and what kind, in blatant violation of federal law.

    The Huffington Post Is Now Actively Encouraging Felony Gun Theft
    http://cdn.bearingarms.com/uploads/2016/10/betsy-e1476298868480.jpg
    The editors of the Huffington Post have always reliably been for gun control, but now they’ve taken the shocking step of publishing a story promoting felony gun theft.

    Betsy got tired of waiting for the gunsucking cowards in Congress to get off their asses and save some lives, so she decided to take matters into her own sticky, chalky hands.

    Gunhumpers love their deadly fetish objects so much that they bring them everywhere they go, and usually do a really shitty job of securing them. This is not so good for the 100 kids who Second Amendment themselves to death every year, but the silver lining is that it does help make Betsy’s job much easier.

    Unlocked cars are a great place to find any kind of gun a Betsy might want, from handguns to AR-15s. Betsy helpfully reminded this gun owner former gun owner of the cold statistical truth:

    Garages can also offer a wealth of weapons to literally anyone who happens to stroll by. Irresponsible gunlicking f*ckwits, take note: if you can’t keep your f*cking guns out of the wrong f*cking hands, they will end up in Betsy’s.

    Any betsy can play this game – it’s fun and easy! The best part is that you don’t even really have to look all that hard before you start finding killing machines left lying around somewhere where a fragile man-child or a violent felon or a kid can pick ‘em up – public bathrooms, parks, even Disney World!

    Make sure to take trophy pics…

    I’m not at all surprised that the angry individual behind “Betsy” would encourage others to break laws.

    I am, however, more than a little alarmed that the editorial board of the Huffington Post has allowed this to be published to their Contributor platform, where it still remains, promoting felonies, five days after being published.

    Update: The article has now been pulled by the editors of the Huffington Post. As liberal as they clearly are, they see the obvious insanity of “Betsy” and his sock puppets.

    Even better, “Betsy” has been outed as a content thief: the melted gun was culled from a a gun vlogger’s old Youtube video.

    Total US Firearms: Not 300 Million, but 412-660 Million?
    http://weaponsman.com/?p=33875

    Total US Firearms: Not 300 Million, but 412-660 Million?
    We believe that the correct number is much higher — somewhere between 412 and 660 million. You may wonder how we came to that number, so buckle up (and cringe, if you’re a math-phobe, although it never gets too theoretical): unlike most of the academics and reporters we linked above, we’re going to use publicly available data, and show our work.

    What if we told you that one ATF computer system logged, by serial number, 252,000,000 unique firearms, and represented only those firearms manufactured, imported or sold by a relatively small number of the nation’s tens of thousands of Federal Firearms Licensees?

    ATF maintains a system, introduced in 1999, called Access 2000 or A2K (GAO report; details are in the .pdfs linked at that .html link). This system allows voluntarily participating manufacturers, importers and wholesalers (no retailers) to enter their firearms by the identifying data that goes on a 4473 directly into an ATF computer. The firms can’t see the data on this system, they can only feed it in. This system is then used by the National Tracing Center in West Virginia to respond rapidly to trace requests: given serial number, make and model they can produce an instant hit, saving field agents a trip to the manufacturer, wholesaler, or jobber. Sometimes this hit can instantly tell the trace technician what retailer was the firearm’s point of first retail sale, really expediting the trace.
    [..]
    For the total count of firearms in the USA to be 300 million, the following must be true:

    (A2K + all firearms made and sold by non-A2K FFLs from 1999-2015 + all firearms made by everyone 1899-1999 + all firearms imported 1899-1999 + all firearms made or imported since October, 2015) – firearms exported = 300M.

    It seems unlikely that 5/6 of all firearms were made or imported in the last 17 years.
    [..]
    We know that the ATF collects the records of out of business FFLs, and that these records are very slowly digitized but never OCR’d (they are legally forbidden to do this. They had preserved out of business records from A2K, which they deleted when GAO caught them [.pdf] in March, 2016. The preservation seems to have been inadvertent). The ATF can only estimate the number of out of business records as “hundreds of millions.”
    [..]
    One easy thing we can do is add 2016’s numbers, because we know they can’t be included in A2K’s 1999-2015 data set. Two ways to estimate 2016 production are to use FBI NICS checks (which are an imperfect measure) and NSSF adjusted NICS numbers (which are an attempt to make a conservative estimate by eliminating sources of upward bias in the FBI data, like one state’s monthly NICS on all permit holders). According to the FBI, there have been 19,872,694 NICS completed through 30 Sep, 2016; and NSSF adjusts that to a conservative 10,837,308.
    [..]
    We conversed with one manufacturer last year who said, not for attribution, that he had shipped in excess of 100,000 80% lowers in the previous year and was constrained by the production schedule of the forging subcontractor he used. Assuming 80% of those were spoiled by end users, ratholed for future use or held for resale, and only 20% completed (which seems to us like a very conservative estimate), then that’s 10,000 more from one off-the-books source.
    [..]
    At this point we have a reasonable and very conservative, very low estimate of 329 million new firearms to the US market 1999-2016. The question becomes one of estimating how many firearms were made and imported in the period from the invention of modern metallic cartridge, smokeless powder ammunition from, say, 1899 to 1998 — and how many of those survive as practical, usable firearms.

    There are several ways to estimate this number:
    We can throw a Pareto 80/20 number out there (about 412-413 million);
    We can make a SWAG that about half the guns in circulation are pre-1999 (about 660 million);
    We can comb old books for production data (TBD);
    We can ask the ATF (we’re sure they’ll be forthcoming… right?);
    Absent a better idea, we can say that the US inventory of firearms is almost certainly between 412 and 660 million, not the lower numbers recently trumpeted in the media.

    Gallup: Support for ban on assault weapons hits all-time low – Hot Air http://hotair.com/archives/2016/10/26/gallup-support-ban-assault-weapons-hits-time-low/

    Gallup: Support for ban on assault weapons hits all-time low
    “All-time” means “in the 20 years they’ve been measuring this,” but still. In 1996, amid soaring public concern about crime, support for a ban stood at 57/42. Twenty years later, after a long period of stupendous decline in crime rates in many major cities, it stands at … 36/61. As recently as four years ago, the gap between support for a ban and opposition was still fairly narrow at 44/51. Four years later, the bottom has dropped out. Huh.

    What makes this really surprising is that it isn’t a standard partisan effect in which Republican opposition to a ban is outpacing Democratic support for it. All three partisan groups have seen sharp declines in support since 2012:
    http://hotair.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/aw1.jpg
    Democrats are on the precipice of losing majority support for an assault-weapons ban, which remains a staple to this day of their leadership’s gun-control chatter. Huh again. Just to add to the intrigue here, a separate Gallup poll taken earlier this year found a sharp uptick in fear about crime rising again:

    October Gun Sales See Massive Spike, Set Yet Another Record
    With 2 months to go, 2016 already second highest year on record for gun sales
    The FBI’s background check system for gun sales processed more than 2.3 million checks in October, setting an all-time record for the month.

    There were 2,333,539 gun-related checks processed through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, known as NICS, last month, according to FBI documents posted on Monday. That represents an increase of more than 350,000 checks over the previous October, itself a record. It’s also the 18th month in a row to set a record.

    With two months to go, 2016 has already seen 22,206,233 NICS checks, making it the second highest year for checks in the history of NICS with only 2015 seeing more.

    Johnson: What Should We Do About Guns?
    https://youtu.be/wAXxQBIfH7I
    In a video for PragerU, Fordham University law professor Nicholas Johnson gets to the heart of the left’s gun control agenda. Johnson cites former Senator Howard Metzenbaum, who staunchly supported gun control, declaring, “If you don’t ban all guns you might as well ban none of them.”

    Pro-gun control politicians often present their proposals as only banning a select number of guns, but in reality they’re always trying to take a step closer toward a gun ban.
    [..]
    Johnson goes on to cite the 2007 International Small Arms Survey, which found that only one-third of gun owners acquiesced to gun bans in 72 countries worldwide. If applied to America, that means there would be “tens of millions of guns to flood into the black market.”

    History shows that gun control efforts tend to fail, so politicians scapegoat “the gun lobby” in response.

    “To the glib critics of America’s gun culture, we should make this demand: If supply controls are the answer, describe precisely the full program of supply-side policies you propose to stop the gun crimes that we all abhor,” says Johnson. “And then tell us how those policies will also allow lawful gun owners to keep and protect themselves with firearms.

    “If you cannot square these two things, then you must convince Americans that they are better off under policies that would disarm good people, in a fruitless attempt to keep bad men from getting guns. “

    Women propelling gun sales to all-time highs
    November 17, 2016
    ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – FBI figures show the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is running more checks than ever before. Nearly 25 million background checks will have been completed by year’s end.

    By proxy, that means more guns being sold than before and local shops say their sales are getting better every year.

    A key group driving sales – women.

    Women are helping propel firearm background checks and gun sales to an all-time high.

    Steve King, owner of Metro Shooting Supply, says it’s astonishing how fast women are getting locked and loaded.

    “If I could open a new store it would cater to women and self-defense and it has been growing the past five years,” he said.

    King says they have shooting lessons everyday and not only are the classes full, but women make up 80 percent of the class.

    Anita Farmer, a resident of Red Bud, Illinois, recently armed herself and recommends other women do so.

    Castro’s Legacy Summed Up in His Three-Word Question about Arms
    http://www.ammoland.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/ScreenHunter_01-Nov.-27-14.04-600×458.jpg
    USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Authorized Journalists” are outdoing each other coming up with superlatives for dead Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Some are comparing him to George Washington, others are calling him a “folk hero,” and all are gushing over the superiority of socialized medicine and centralized communist indoctrination of the young.

    The problem is, like so much of the agenda-driven narrative the media feeds the public, Cuban health care ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. Per a National Review summation, they have a three-tiered system, one for rich foreigners, one for party officials, and one for the workers and peasants
    [..]
    History has already recorded and judged the enormous impact of Marxist totalitarianism, as have Castro’s victims, their survivors, and those who fled his tyranny. Still, in several ways, Obama has a point: History is written by the victors, communists rewrite it to serve their purposes, and those who do not learn from the past are condemned to repeat it.
    [..]
    The Cuban revolution was no American one, and Castro’s embracing of communism after convincing the world he was a freedom fighter should remind all who can think of the “fool me once” adage.

    As should Castro’s pointed question when making his case that the people no longer had legitimate need of guns, and that his administration should be the only ones wielding a monopoly of violence:
    ¿Armas para que?
    (GunPolicy.org classifies Cuba’s gun regulation as “restrictive.” Larry Pratt at Gun Owners of America fleshes out how that works in practice, recounting “Castro moved against private gun ownership the second day he was in power. He sent his thugs throughout the island using the gun registry lists — compiled by the preceding Batista regime — to confiscate the people’s firearms.”)

    Shannon Watts’ Attempt to Politicize Ohio State Incident Fails Spectacularly
    Rather than waiting for details on the Ohio State University incident, founder/mouthpiece for Moms Demand Action Shannon Watts pounced at the opportunity to on social media this morning after receiving a Buckeye Alert of an active shooter on campus:
    http://cdn.bearingarms.com/uploads/2016/11/Screen-Shot-2016-11-28-at-12.47.33-PM-620×413.png
    Wait, can we pray to God now if it’s a suspected shooting? I thought we weren’t supposed to offer prayers in these situations, but I don’t know who’s updating the playbook, can we get a ruling on this?!
    Upon learning the Ohio State was not, in fact, an active shooter situation, Watts then thanked God for the fact that the attack was not committed with a firearm. However, no word on whether or not she was/is thankful for the good guy with a gun who stopped the suspect.

    Sowell: A public service https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/12/a-public-service

    Sowell: A public service
    Concealed guns protect not only those who carry them, but also those who do not. If concealed guns become widespread, then a mugger or a car jacker has no way of knowing who has one and who does not. It makes being a mugger or a car jacker a less safe occupation. Gun control laws are in effect occupational safety laws — OSHA for burglars, muggers, car jackers and others.

    The fatal fallacy of gun control laws in general is the assumption that such laws actually control guns. Criminals who disobey other laws are not likely to be stopped by gun control laws. What such laws actually do is increase the number of disarmed and defenseless victims.

    Mass shootings are often used as examples of a need for gun control. But what puts a stop to mass shootings? Usually the arrival on the scene of somebody else with a gun.

    Mass shooters are often portrayed as “irrational” people engaged in “senseless” acts. But mass shooters are usually rational enough to attack schools, churches and other places where there is far less likelihood of someone being on the scene who is armed.

    Seldom do we hear about these “irrational” shooters engaging in “senseless” attacks on meetings of the National Rifle Association or a local gun show or a National Guard armory.

    The fallacy of believing that the way to reduce shootings is to disarm peaceful people extends from domestic gun control laws to international disarmament agreements. If disarmament agreements reduced the dangers of war, there would never have been a World War II.

    Top 5 Facts That Gun Control Advocates Hate https://goo.gl/TB6TAz via @yidwithlid

    Top 5 Facts That Gun Control Advocates Hate
    http://lidblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/5-facts-936×1024.jpg
    Fact 1
    92% of mass shootings happen where guns aren’t supposed to be allowed. Gun free zones are a myth, a fairy tale to put the juvenile minds of hoplophobes at ease.
    Fact 2
    Why is that? Because criminals by nature are cowards by and large. And while it’s easy for a coward to rob and mug people he/she KNOWS are unarmed and unable to defend themselves it’s a little more precarious for a criminal to approach someone to rob that very may well be packing a hand cannon and is more than willing to arrange the appointment time between said scumbag criminal and Satan. So it’s no wonder that gun violence has plummeted.
    Fact 3
    Gun controllers and progressives LOVE their buzzwords. They create terms in order to frighten the ignorant and herding the sheeple into their way of thinking without those people actually looking into the matter themselves.
    There IS NO gun show loophole. The gun control advocates want to scare the general populace by spreading this lie but if you go to a gun show and want to buy a pistol from a dealer you HAVE to get a background check.
    Fact 4
    2.5 MILLION times a year some law abiding citizen uses a firearm to stop a crime. Because being beaten or murdered or raped by a criminal happens to be a crime, so stopping that is a win for the good guys. Gun Control advocates think it is morally superior to allow yourself to be murdered, beaten or raped than to use a firearm to defend yourself.
    Fact 5
    You’ve no doubt heard it before but it bears repeating. In order to subjugate or exterminate a people you must first disarm them.

    New York woman sues for right to an attorney at gun license hearings
    A gun owner who had her firearms confiscated is suing New York in federal court to have the right to legal representation during a proceeding to revoke a gun license.

    Donna McKay filed suit in U.S. District Court against the state on Wednesday over the process that led to her guns being impounded by the local sheriff on the direction of the State Police after she spent the night in an area hospital following a reaction to cough medicine she had been prescribed.

    McKay’s attorney, gun rights lawyer Paloma A. Capanna, who has a history of taking on similar cases, argues she was deprived her due process by authorities and only advised of the allegations against her — which could lead to the permanent loss of her Second Amendment rights — when police showed up to get her guns.

    According to court documents, McKay had voluntarily visited Soldiers and Sailors Hospital in April 2015 and was allowed to leave after she spent less than 12 hours there. A week later, Yates County Sheriff’s deputies visited her home with a court order to collect her firearms and gun permit as she had been labeled by the State Police as having been involuntarily committed to a mental institution.

    State officials also reported her to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System in an effort to block future gun purchases.

    How’s Gun Confiscation Working Out in Oz?
    Well, in 1996, Australia outlawed and confiscated semi-auto and slide-action rifles and shotguns. And crime in Oz came to a standstill.
    We kid, we kid.
    After giving the law ten years to stabilize things, here’s what a chart of the last ten years’ gun violations in the city of Melbourne looks like:
    http://weaponsman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/melbourne_gun_crime_2000-2015.jpg
    The Age writes:

    Despite Australia’s strict gun control regime, criminals are now better armed than at any time since [the 1996 ban and confiscation].

    “Despite.” Heh. Whom do they think benefits most from prohibition of anything?

    Shootings have become almost a weekly occurrence, with more than 125 people, mostly young men, wounded in the past five years.

    While the body count was higher during Melbourne’s ‘Underbelly War’ (1999-2005), more people have been seriously maimed in the recent spate of shootings and reprisals.

    More woundings, fewer fatalities? That tells us this: Australian doctors, nurses, and emergency trauma responders, too, practice continuing education, attend international trauma conferences, and keep improving their skills. (Of course, experience in all those GSWs helps in and of itself). Who knew?

    “The .45 ACP doesn’t give you the best of anything.”

    Lower magazine capacity than other defensive handgun calibers, less consistent expansion and penetration than other defensive handgun calibers, more difficult to manage recoil than other defensive handgun calibers, and higher cost per round per offering from the same manufacturer, larger frame sizes, and weight… he brings up some valid points.

    Gun Control Supporters Admit Lying About Background Checks For 20+ Years
    Gun control fanatics have been lying about the percentage of firearms purchased without a background check since Bill Clinton was the President as an excuse to call for so-called “universal” background checks.

    Instead of the old lie, they’re pushing a new probable falsehood.

    The share of Americans who obtained a gun without first undergoing a background check is dramatically lower than previous estimates, researchers at Harvard and Northeastern universities have determined. The finding reshapes one of the most prominent assumptions of the US gun control debate.

    Just 22% of current gun owners who acquired a firearm within the past two years did so without a background check, according to a new national survey by public health researchers at Harvard and Northeastern universities shared in advance with the Trace and the Guardian.

    The data supporting their claim that 22% of gun purchases occur without background checks is self-reported. Any reasonable person would therefore be skeptical that a new lie is merely replacing an old one.

    Homesmithing News: Printed Revolver, Easy Home Rifling
    http://weaponsman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Imura-Works-revolver.jpg
    Of course, this wouldn’t be that interesting if files weren’t available. But files are available — how ’bout that. The file pack includes not only the .stls that you need to print it out, but also assembly drawings that show how it all goes together.
    https://grabcad.com/library/flying-swallow-revolver-80-completion-3d-gun-1
    Beyond Printing: The Steel Rifled Barrel

    Of course, a printed pistol has its limits; we’ve seen a lot of better examples of homemade guns made from steel. In an austere or denied environment, raw steel will always be available, but one stumbling block many small and home machinists have encountered has been rifling a barrel. But it turns out, there is a high-throughput, benchtop way to do it: electro-chemical machining (ECM). You don’t need a big ECM machine: you can improvise with innocuous parts and chemicals (table salt!). This is the whole setup:
    http://weaponsman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/ECM-rifling-setup-768×576.jpg
    That particular barrel used a pentagonal 3D-printed mandrel, copper wires, and three rounds of 5 minutes in a saline solution with 6 volts and 6 amps running through the wires. The rifling is 5-thousandths deep. It’s not a target barrel, but it’s a process that will produce a legal and likely functioning rifled barrel. And you can experiment with it with just some steel tubing, a bucket, wires and a mandrel. This is the mandrel, with the copper machining wires attached.
    http://weaponsman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/ecm-twisted-pentagonal-rifling-mandrel-768×576.jpg
    The whole process is recounted on this imgur thread, including several earlier experiments before this last barrel was produced. These barrels are a proof of concept, not in any particular caliber or chambering at this time. So we’re a long way from making, say, AR barrels, but a Sten barrel is close.

    You can’t ban guns. Make one problem difficult, and the community reacts to the damage by detouring around it. Short of lobotomizing the whole community, this is only going to grow from here.

    For Hillary Clinton, “Thoughtcrime” Is Good Presidential Politics

    For Hillary Clinton, “Thoughtcrime” Is Good Presidential Politics
    08/27/2014
    For all the careful staging and coaching politicians use to maintain their public images, sometimes they still slip up and say what they really think. Who can forget President Obama’s infamous remark to wealthy donors in San Francisco that rural Americans who feel abandoned by the economy “get bitter and they cling to guns or religion”?
    […]
    Speaking at a televised “town hall” meeting in June, Clinton responded at length to a question about the effectiveness of so-called “assault weapon” and “high-capacity” magazine bans. Her response told us perhaps more than she intended about her true opinion of the Second Amendment and its supporters.

    Clinton insisted the nation needed a more “thoughtful conversation” about gun control and continued, “We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

    In the days following that remark, a number of commentators rightly emphasized the irony of America’s former secretary of state—one whose tenure was marked by controversies over real terrorists—using that term to describe ordinary Americans. Yet the true significance of her remarks was even more fundamental and chilling.

    Clinton didn’t just condemn the ownership and use of “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines. Instead, she claimed that what “terrorizes” America is a “viewpoint” that diverges from hers. This “minority” viewpoint is not just ill-advised or misinformed, in her estimation. Rather, it “cannot” be tolerated at all. This is the Orwellian realm of “thoughtcrime,” where simple beliefs or opinions are deemed as unacceptable and blameworthy as criminal behavior itself.

    Clinton’s outlook mirrors that of other gun-banning extremists. Their scorn targets not just, or even primarily, behavior. Instead, they seem more determined to stamp out pro-gun thoughts than violent crimes committed with guns.

    money other than money which people earn themselves.
    If the State wishes
    to spend more it can do so only by borrowing your savings or by taxing
    you more. It is no good thinking that someone else will pay – that
    ‘someone else’ is you. There is no such thing as public money; there is

    MYTH BUSTED: Actually, Yes, Hitler Was a Socialist Liberal http://louderwithcrowder.com/myth-busted-actually-yes-hitler-was-a-socialist-liberal/ via @scrowder

    MYTH BUSTED: Actually, Yes, Hitler Was a Socialist Liberal
    A favorite tactic employed by leftists is to describe the Nazis as “right wing,” with Adolf Hitler, their leader, as the grand leader of this “right wing” movement. Rewriting history is pretty common for leftists, as their history is littered with injustice (the KKK was founded by Democrats, did you know?). Injustices they claim to fight against today. Awkward.

    Adolf Hitler wasn’t “right wing.” If you take nothing else from this post, just remember Hitler was a socialist. With terrible facial hair. There’s an easy way to remember it, too. NAZI stands for National Socialist German Workers‘ Party. Associate it with blunt mustaches.

    What does National Socialist German Worker’s Party mean? Glad you asked. Is it different from “Democratic socialism”? Only in semantics. A Democracy is mob rule, which is why America is actually a constitutional, representative republic, NOT a democracy. A representative republic protects the minority from the majority, whereas a democracy is the rule of the majority. Leftists get caught up in words, getting tripped up over “National Socialism” as opposed to “Democrat Socialism.” But it’s just that. Semantics. So when Hitler ginned up hatred for the Jews, he could get the mob to agree with him. He could get the mob to believe him. There were no representatives to stop Hitler. He was one man helming the desperation of a majority of people. Spot the difference?

    When we examine Hitler’s Nazi Germany through the lens of history, most, if not all of us, think of the Holocaust. In fact the holocaust might be the only thing we associate with Hitler’s Nazis. We’ve all been told of the Jews being marched off to death camps where they were worked, tortured, then gassed. We’ve also heard of the experiments conducted by Hitler’s Dr. Mengele. All terrible practices which we rightly find horrifying. Unless you’re one of those people who think Planned Parenthood is great.

    What we don’t often hear or learn about is how Hitler ruled the rest of Germany, what his domestic policies were for the German people he didn’t march off to death camps. Hitler’s domestic, socialist policies will be the focus of this post. Trigger warning: they’re eerily similar to what American Democrats tout today. Double trigger warning? He initially had the support of the mob of people. So replace many of Hitler’s policies with something you hear from Bernie Sanders…
    [..]
    Employment for All
    After that depression, Hitler made a huge promise to his people: employment for all. How did he do it?
    http://www.markedbyteachers.com/gcse/history/hitler-s-domestic-policies-between-1933-1939-engaged-widespread-popularity-among-german-people-how-far-would-you-agree.html
    So Hitler created jobs…through government. While at the same time, he criticized certain segments of the population, demeaning them, blaming the countries woes upon them. The rich, they just ruin everything. Sound familiar?
    Big Education
    If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch http://louderwithcrowder.com/holocaust-survivor-draws-chilling-similarities-between-nazism-and-obama/
    […]
    The Police State
    If you dared oppose the Nazis or Hitler politically, especially with your words, you better watch out.
    http://www.ushmm.org/outreach/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007675
    In Conclusion

    Hitler was a horrible human being. But aside from how he treated the Jews, aside from his monstrous ways, his policies were anything but “conservative.” He wanted big government, he wanted big education, he wanted thought control. He hated political dissidents. He loathed free-speech. He feared an armed citizenry.

    So stop saying “Hitler was right-wing.” No, he wasn’t. If anything, he was a full-fledged left-winger. With a horrible mustache.

    5 phases of the active shooter: A tactical reload
    After the tragedy in Oregon, we must redouble our efforts to energize and educate the public on how they can prevent these shootings by watching for certain common behaviors these killers exhibit
    I developed — and have taught — the Five Phases of the Active Shooter after a great deal of research coupled with personal experiences with active shooters. After the tragedy in Oregon, I believe the conditions are right to do a tactical reload of the Five Phases concept. Take a moment to review the below, and then go out and educate your public.

    1. Fantasy Phase
    During this phase, the wannabe mass-murderer dreams of his day of achieving an historic level of carnage. Often they will write, draw, and post this fantasy in a variety of venues, from their notebook to their Facebook page.

    During this time, this potential demon bereft of empathy is surprisingly likely to share his thoughts and feelings with someone else. If this shared information makes it to the properly-motivated professional, lives can be saved by that professional alerting authorities. That professional might be a teacher, a doctor, a counselor, a therapist or a law enforcement officer.

    Too often, people dismiss these warning signs as “crazy talk” and do not take action because they are afraid of being accused of overreacting. Inaction enables carnage, whereas taking proper action can prevent it.

    2. Planning Phase
    During the planning phase, the potential killer lays out the who, what, when, where, how, and why of his plan. In other words, he will document who he will kill, what he will use to accomplish these murders, and when, where and how the slaughter will take place. In many cases the shooter will intricately explain the reasons for his intended actions.

    Finding the plan on a hard drive or in hard copy form before the event will almost certainly ensure the plan will never come to fruition. These plans — or manifestos — are often so hateful and intent filled they will impact either the length of sentencing and/or treatment, depending on which venue is appropriate.

    When these recorded plans are found in advance of the attack, lives will be saved.

    3. Preparation Phase
    After forming the plan, the mass-murderer-in-waiting must gather the items he needs to succeed. He must buy or steal the tools required to deliver death and destruction. The suspect will also visit the scene to gather intelligence as he finalizes the plan.

    The preparation phase is an opportunity for a family member, citizen, school employee, businessman, or police officer to take notice of the suspicious nature of the accumulation of information and equipment. Relaying suspicions here may also save lives.

    4. Approach Phase
    This phase affords an opportunity for an alert citizen or police officer to notice someone dressed for combat approaching a school, hospital, mall, theater, or church carrying a weapon, or weapons. If the citizen calls 911 or officers spot the suspect, the soon-to-be killer can be stopped prior to reaching his target.

    The “Terry Stop” is an invaluable tool for situations such as this.

    5. Implementation Phase
    Regardless of motivations, once they start killing these attackers are going for top score. What is needed is an immediate, effective, efficient act of courage. Seconds lost equal lives lost. An honorable gunfighter needs to intervene, take the shot and make that shot.

    Even if unarmed — when fleeing is not an option — many potential victims have chosen to fight. Many shooters have been thwarted by an immediate, aggressive unarmed response by those who refused to “go quietly into that good night.”

    It Could Happen To You
    Officers out there must be alert to the fact that you may cross paths with an active shooter during the first four phases. Your powers of observation, your determined investigation techniques, and your grasp of how to apply the rules of arrest, search, seizure, or the emergency detention of the dangerously mentally ill may result in you saving lives.

    You also have to realize it is becoming more and more likely that you may be the first honorable gunfighter to arrive at the scene of an in-progress active shooter — on duty or off. You may have to ask yourself, “Do I wait for back-up or do I advance alone?”

    Realize, however, that when you hear those shots and screams, your feet are likely to decide for you. Most of you will find yourself instinctively drawing your weapon as you “ride to the sound of the guns.” Prepare!

    Gun Control Group Briefed ABC’s Designated Survivor Team, Urges Supporters to Thank Show for Gun Episode
    April 13, 2017 5:00 am

    A leading gun control group said on Wednesday it briefed the team behind ABC’s Designated Survivor in the lead up to its premiere season and urged its supporters to thank the channel for last week’s episode focusing on guns.

    The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, one of the country’s leading gun control groups, said they gave a presentation to the team behind the primetime show starring Kiefer Sutherland.

    “Our president Dan Gross presented to members of their team a while back before the season began about representing gun violence on screen and spent time educating them on the issue,” Brendan Kelly, a Brady Campaign spokesman, told the Washington Free Beacon. “It was part of that larger effort I alluded to in [a recent email to Brady supporters] to work with content producers and creators to highlight the issue of gun violence in America and the sensible solutions at our disposal.”

    Designated Survivor airs Wednesdays at 10 P.M. EST and focuses on Sutherland’s character Tom Kirkland who becomes president after most of the federal government is killed in a terrorist attack. The April 5 episode of the series, titled “One Hundred Days,” focused on Sutherland’s character laying out the agenda for his struggling administration. Though the episode begins with Sutherland instructing his staff to avoid hot button issues, his wife makes comments in support of gun control that create a media firestorm.

    Shortly afterwards, Sutherland is confronted at a town hall by a woman whose daughter was shot to death by her ex-boyfriend. After calling gun control “one of the most divisive, hot-button topics in our nation,” Sutherland lays out his views.

    “I believe that the American people have every right to buy and own guns by virtue of the Second Amendment,” Sutherland’s character said. “I would also like to take a moment to quash the myth that somehow gun control is equal to the Federal Government coming into your home and taking your weapons away. Nobody is advocating for that. We need to be doing everything we can to stop guns from falling into the hands of prior felons, people dealing with serious mental-health issues, people on terrorist watch lists. I mean, come on. We need to be using common sense. It’s as simple as that.”

    The Brady Campaign said they were happy with how the series portrayed the issue of gun control.

    “We hope integrating this issue into storylines can help facilitate more conversation about the everyday gun violence that kills 33,000 Americans a year and shine a spotlight on the sensible steps politicians and gun owners alike can take to help bring that number down,” Kelly said. “For us, it’s about changing social norms and rethinking the way we talk about guns. Of course we appreciate when the issue is reflected as accurately as possible, recognizing creative liberties can and often are taken in entertainment. We think Designated Survivor really nailed it on that front.”

    Left-Wing Gun Group Warns It’s “Ready to Rumble” https://bearingarms.com/bob-o/2017/04/07/yall-left-wing-gun-group-says-ready-rumble/ #GunSense=NonSense #2a #NRA

    Left-Wing Gun Group Warns It’s “Ready to Rumble”
    Last week we wrote about the experience that Phoenix News Times journalist Stephen Lemons had while attempting to cover a left-wing open carry march, and asked if we were edging towards a civil war.

    Mr. Lemon managed to synch up with one of the representatives of the group of communists, anarchists, and amusingly titled “antifascists” (who are clearly fascists themselves, right down to their nice brown shirts) this week, and his account provides some interesting information about the militant left wing group.

    Members of the group dress like they just stepped out of historical photos showing anarchists, communists, and others battling fascists during the Spanish Civil War.

    Communist imagery appears on the personal websites of some JBGC members. And the red bandannas they tie around their necks emulate those worn by West Virginia coal miners during a violent 1921 labor uprising known as the Battle of Blair Mountain.

    Their list of principles on the Redneck Revolt site include statements against capitalism, white supremacy, the nation-state, and “the wars of the rich,” while advocating for the “right of militant resistance.”

    Yet, Payne cited the group’s work tabling at gun shows as an attempt to find common ground with right-wing militia members. Both the JBGC and militias are wary of the federal government’s power and cherish their rights under the Second Amendment.

    Just as there are some really squared-away folks on the militant right, there are so folks who appear to know what they’re doing on the militant left. Video Mr. Lemon shot of the march no only showed people who clearly knew next to nothing about what they were doing, but also a number of people in-shape people with what appear to be military tattoos, well-laid-out battle belts, functional and well-used firearms that appear to bear the scars of training, and a general air of confident competence you would expect from former grunts.

    How to turn a paintball gun into a homemade 9mm “carbine” pistol!
    Once again, I bring you another installment of “This is why it’s impossible to ban guns” because they’re just so darn EASY to make!

    This guy made a home-made 9mm “carbine” pistol from:

    * A paintball gun
    * Random parts from a hardware store
    * hacksaw, dremel, welder, drill press and hand tools

    And of course using his brain. In fact, he even designed it from scratch! Check it out:

    Alt-Left Insanity: Liberal Shooting… http://rightwingnews.com/column-2/alt-left-insanity-liberal-shooting-spree-time-take-away-guns/

    Alt-Left Insanity: Liberal Shooting Spree = Time to Take Away Our Guns
    “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” Those are the famous words of then-Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Coming just a day after an alt-left nutball tried to kill a baseball diamond full of Republicans, it’s worth understanding how liberals see the event.

    It’s an opportunity.

    Next, it’s about the almighty liberal agenda. And you can thank lefty Amanda Marcotte from Salon for the typical hot take — guns are bad, people who like guns are worse.

    “Fears of emasculation, racist anxieties about crime, power fantasies about silencing dissent through threats of violence, and a widespread loathing for liberals and their insistence on rational evidence — all these things sell guns. They also get out votes for Republicans,” she wrote.

    Marcotte’s piece, “Lessons of the “baseball shooting”: Gun violence feeds on itself — and even now Republicans won’t listen,” was the classic alt-lefty position. If only the right would change its views on everything — guns, taxes, abortion, Big Government, etc. — then everything would be OK.

    Remember, it was a lefty nutjob trying to assassinate Republican congressmen, but it’s the right’s fault, not the left’s. “The gun industry and the National Rifle Association market guns with promises that owning guns will make a customer feel manly and powerful, and that fantasy has a power that can transcend political boundaries.”

    Because it’s all about Republicans being wrong and also about taking away your rights. Marcotte wants Republicans “rethinking their resistance to saner gun control laws.” Saner. Gosh, that leaves tons of debate room. Support my position or your views are INSANE!!!

    Law-Abiding Citizens Have More Than 600 Million Firearms in America
    https://bearingarms.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/MERICA-2.0.jpg
    I’ve also seen one that claims we have over 400 million guns and 24 trillion rounds of ammunition. The fact is, while there is no definitive way to tally all the firearms in the United States, it is commonly accepted and reported that there are roughly 300 million firearms in the hands of law-abiding Americans.

    But has anyone else noticed that number hasn’t moved in years, even in the 8 years Obama sparked an increase in gun sales, the gun run during Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, and after the NICS background checks system set new records for 15 straight months?
    So what if that “300 million” estimate is wrong?
    According to Weapons Man, it is:

    We believe that the correct number is much higher — somewhere between 412 and 660 million. You may wonder how we came to that number, so buckle up (and cringe, if you’re a math-phobe, although it never gets too theoretical): unlike most of the academics and reporters we linked above, we’re going to use publicly available data, and show our work.

    What if we told you that one ATF computer system logged, by serial number, 252,000,000 unique firearms, and represented only those firearms manufactured, imported or sold by a relatively small number of the nation’s tens of thousands of Federal Firearms Licensees?

    After explaining the logic behind their equation and showing his work, I’m convinced we have more than 600 million guns in America, more than double what is reported by the media.

    The Possible Las Vegas Motive That Only Mark Steyn Is Talking About http://www.dailywire.com/news/22026/possible-las-vegas-motive-only-mark-steyn-talking-tyler-dahnke #GunSense=NonSense #2a #NRA Boot @MomsDemand

    The Possible Las Vegas Motive That Only Mark Steyn Is Talking About
    London think tank member tries to come up with a motive, lands on “gun control.”
    On Friday, Las Vegas undersheriff Kevin C. McMahill told the media that the motive underlying Stephen Paddock’s monstrous rampage remains a mystery. It’s truly bizarre that almost a week after the shooting we have no insight into what set Paddock off. Generally speaking, mass murderers kill in order to send a message, or because they’re seriously mentally ill.
    [..]
    Mark Steyn pointed out that, in many ways, Paddock’s actions more closely resembled those of a professional hitman than those of his mass-shooting predecessors. The careful planning suggests Paddock had some form of motive.
    [..]
    Perhaps, but alternatively, author Mark Steyn shared a theory on Friday sent to him by a reader whom he describes as a “gentleman at a London think tank.” The reader’s theory, which is worth reading in its entirety, even if just as a thought experiment, arrives at a motive that seems to check nearly every box.
    [..]
    Steyn’s reader notes Paddock “spent days filling his hotel room with more weapons and ammunition than he could ever conceivably use along with an array of advanced modifications and accessories.” Which begs the question: Why did he spend energy and time sneaking all those firearms into the hotel knowing that when bullets started flying, he wouldn’t get the chance to use even half of what he had on hand?
    […]
    If Paddock’s goal was to shock the U.S. into banning guns, or passing strict gun control, as the think tank member suggests, it means the bombshell answer explaining what drove a man to murder so many innocents is never coming. If it’s true, it means that Paddock planted the seed of an idea — that gun control is necessary — that is already tearing through the United States like a cancer. It’s an interesting theory, but I hope that it’s wrong. Stephen Paddock has devastated too many lives already. The idea of his murderous actions posthumously influencing our world more than they already have is hard to stomach.
