... "Ms ... uh ... Dr. Howell (why do I keep wanting to call her 'Thurston'?) may be an expert in urban and global health policy collectivism, but she's certainly no accountant. You don't just factor in costs and completely ignore benefits. Try that with IRS-auditable books and see where that lands you." ...

"Almost 20 years after then-President Bill Clinton pushed the idea of 'midnight basketball' courts as strategy to curb inner city violence, last night’s shooting of 13 people at a Chicago park in what appears to be a gang-related incident, suggests that it’s not working out." ...
 

Guns don't kill people; gun control laws kill people

"Here we go again. We have another mass shooting at yet another 'gun-free' zone. Not only was the location a 'gun-free' zone, it was located inside the nation's capital, which has some of the strictest gun-control laws in the entire country."

"I thought gun-control laws and 'gun-free' zones were supposed to protect people from gun violence. If one listens to the vast majority of talking heads on network and cable news shows, including Piers Morgan and Joe Scarborough, that is exactly what we are led to believe. But in reality, just the opposite is true. 'Gun-Free' zones are actually 'Free Killing' zones. And in truth, guns don't kill people; gun-control laws kill people." ...

"A report published yesterday by the Seattle Times about Pioneer Square murder suspect Donnell Jackson has an eerie similarity to so many other background profiles of alleged killers, including Virginia Tech shooter Seung-hui Cho and Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis."

"All can be said to have suffered from mental problems, and a new Gallup poll suggests that Americans hold the mental health system at fault for gun-related violence." ...

"The responsibility for the tragedy Monday in Washington, D.C., at the Navy Yard can and should be laid at the feet of those responsible. Sadly, it is our government who bears much of the responsibility for this tragedy, for it is our government that has made the rules and set the culture that allowed this event to take place." ...

"The idea that firearms owners should be forced to insure their guns is nothing new. Gun grabbers have glommed onto it with gusto for years. Ignoring the fact that government-mandated gun insurance falls squarely under the 'shall not be infringed' part of the Second Amendment, and that driving is not a natural, civil or Constitutionally protected right, it must be said (by a mindful Jew like me, anyway) that gun registration leads to gun confiscation which opens the door to state-sponsored murder and mass extermination. To make that point perfectly clear, I draw your attention to the prologue of Neal Knox’s book The Gun Rights War . . ." ...

... "... The Washington Post has pointed out that half of the deadliest [mass shootings since 1983] -- Virginia Tech, Aurora, Sandy Hook, Binghamton, Fort Hood and the Navy Yard -- have occurred since 2007."

"Experts have begun to focus, appropriately, on missed signals about the mental state of accused shooter Aaron Alexis, who told Rhode Island police officers that he was hearing voices. Certainly, the United States needs to do much better in providing mental health care to every citizen who needs it."

"But it would be much more practical to focus on reining in guns. ..." ...

"I FEEL I must revisit gun control as the situation is worse than I had previously thought. First, the Republicans had offered President Obama a deal in which the bulk of the new gun control regulations would be left out of legislation."

"The Democrats would still be able to submit a bill on strengthening background checks and preventing the mentally ill, or those with criminal histories, from purchasing guns."

"Then in a dramatic turn of events that is surely one of the lowest points in American politics, and a crushing blow to Obama’s Presidency, the vast majority of Senate Republicans, plus a few Democrats from rural states, killed the bill by invoking the filibuster." ...

"On Wednesday, just two days after a gunman killed 12 people and himself in the Washington Navy Yard, a group of shattered family members gathered on a dais in a packed media room in the Capitol building, two kilometres from Monday's killing spree."

"These were the relatives of those killed at earlier shootings, on the Hill as part of a pre-arranged lobbying effort."

"Who else has to die before you get it?"

"One was Carlos Soto, whose older sister Victoria was shot dead as she tried to protect her primary school class in Newtown, Connecticut. He told reporters he did not want other 15-year-olds to have to pick out coffins for family members." ...

"We didn't do anything to stop the killing after another young guy shot and killed 32 students and adults six years ago at Virginia Tech."

"But that doesn't mean we should stop trying to stop the killing now that another guy has shot 12 more innocent people in Washington, D.C."

"Well, ho hum, Monday was just another day in this land of mass-murdering gun violence, where too many Americans take it for granted that the mounting death toll is the price we must pay to protect our right to bear arms."

"Let’s see. There were only 12 innocent and unsuspecting citizens at the Washington Navy Yard who this time could be sacrificed on the altar of the Second Amendment. ..."

"The fact that Aaron Alexis took out a cool dozen before he was shot in such a formidable armed military atmosphere should put a dent in the standard argument that if everyone was 'carrying,' he would have been pulled up short. Right! All those guards, and Alexis still could turn it into a massacre." ...

"It’s probably one of the most terrifying scenarios most people could imagine. You’re coming home after a long shift at work, thankful to have made good tips that night in a bad economy."

"The next thing you know you’re thrown to the ground, a gun is in your face and two thugs are pulling at your clothes and taking all of your belongings, including your hard earned money."

"That’s exactly what happened to one Atlanta, GA are woman earlier this month."

"Fortunately, in our story, there is a hero."

"Breaking new ground in the state-level battle over firearms, the Democratic-dominated California state legislature has taken gun control into uncharted territory with a flurry of new bills that target not just firearms and ammunition, but also recreational hunting."

"Among the dozen gun-control bills sitting on California Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk are measures that would outlaw lead ammunition for hunting as well as common types of hunting rifles under the umbrella of an assault-weapons ban. Taken together, the measures go far beyond the efforts that have inspired a sharp backlash and political battles in states such as Connecticut and Colorado." ...

"Earlier this year the Arizona state legislature passed a law making it illegal for police departments to destroy weapons bought from the public during gun 'buy backs'."

"The law would have guns instead sold to licensed, federal firearms dealers at auction and placed in their inventory for sale to the public. This is how most evidence and property is treated"

"Apparently the Phoenix Police Department really, really hates that idea."

"They hate the idea of people legally buying and selling guns so much that they spent over $10,000 of taxpayer funds in overtime in order to destroy the weapons before the new law takes effect." ...

"Alicia Garafalo claims her constitutional rights were violated by city police after she was arrested on the charges of second-degree harassment and second-degree obstructing governmental administration. She claims the police lodged the charges against her after she tried to file a complaint against Kenneth Ahigian, an off-duty trooper who engaged in a fracas with her friends inside and outside the City Tavern on Caroline Street nearly four years ago." ...

"The Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit against the Shelburne police, saying an officer conducted a bogus traffic stop of a North Ferrisburgh man and lied about it in traffic court."

"Town Officer Jason Lawton pulled over Rod MacIver in December and accused him of running a red light, which MacIver denied."

"The ACLU said MacIver, an artist, later obtained a video recording from a cruiser-mounted camera showing the light was yellow when he drove through the intersection."

"Lawton gave sworn testimony at the traffic court hearing that MacIver had run the red light. But the ACLU said he later admitted he had known before the hearing that MacIver had not committed a traffic violation." ...

"Yesterday, our head scribe laid out the reasons why he would continue his caffeine consumption, with a side of high fructose corn syrup muffins, at his friendly neighborhood Starbucks. He made good, pragmatic points highlighting the coffee company’s “request,” the absence of legally binding signage, the natural right of self-defense and the potential political and social benefits of an armed costumer stopping a criminal assault within the now-seemingly unprotected cafes. ... All valid arguments. However, I present the following two counterpoints why I refuse to patronize any business – Starbucks or otherwise – that demands, requests, or legally requires that I disarm before entering . . ." ...

"Speaking with radio host Tom Joyner this morning on BlackAmericaWeb.com, CNN anchor Don Lemon admitted that a recent study about mass shootings in America has made him rethink his positions on gun control." ...

"Lemon wondered aloud whether the failure of lawmakers to 'step up' and impose stricter gun registration and background check laws might mean 'that by some of us not owning a gun, or at least embracing the idea of one, are we setting ourselves up to be victims in a movie theater, a school, a public building, most of all in our streets, in our own neighborhoods, and in our own homes?'" ...

"When people start openly carrying weapons on the streets of Appleton, it’s time to seriously consider that maybe common sense has been lost in this country. The Second Amendment was written for a different time. The right to bear arms was meant to support a government that could not afford a standing army and relied on a militia. Not only do we have a standing army but we also have a militia, the National Guard, which is state, not federal. ..."
