Top 15 Killers of Americans: Homicides are off the list, even though more people are carrying guns than ever before

"CNN.com is reporting that while the leading killers of Americans continue to be non-infectious diseases like heart disease, strokes and lung diseases, one of the perpetual causes of death fell off the top 15 list this year:"

"Homicides." ...

"Even as this news was breaking, news outlets across the country were reporting that sales of firearms had spiked to new highs during the Christmas shopping season. What's more ... more Americans are exercising their Second Amendment rights by legally carrying concealed handguns than at any time in our nation's history."

"If guns are tools of destruction designed only for killing, as those in the gun ban lobby claim, this good news could never have happened."

All I wanted for Christmas was fewer stupid gun laws

"I wasn't among the estimated 2 million or so people who found a gun under the tree this Christmas, not because I didn't want one or because my wife doesn't love me, but because of stupid gun laws and an aversion to spending extra money to satisfy those stupid gun laws."

"I'm frugal by nature and that inclination has gotten more pronounced with the current economy and future uncertainties. But this Christmas my friends at J&G Sales made me an offer I didn't think I could refuse. They lowered the price on their P64 pistols to just $149.95! The P64 is a Polish knock-off of the famed Walther PPK carried by James Bond, but with a little more power. I just had to have one ... That's when the stupid gun laws kicked in." ...

"The development comes as the American firearms industry is gathered here at the ... (SHOT) Show, and Fast and Furious is a hot topic.

"Concealed Carry laws vary among the states, with only a few not allowing for the practice in any circumstances. The trend has been for ever more liberal concealed carry laws in the United States and with recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings upholding an individual right to keep and bear arms under Second Amendment the trend will likely continue." ...

... "The problem for Mr. Romney came when he was knocked off the Mitt Romney script. When given opportunities to defend conservatism with questions about his tax returns and hunting, Mr. Romney stammered through painful answers and defended only himself, not conservatism. The hunting exchange was particularly illustrative. In 2008, you may recall, Mr. Romney tried to endear himself to Second Amendment advocates by boasting of his hunting exploits, which were mostly fictional. When pressed for his game of choice, he could only come up with 'varmints.'"

... "So terahertz imaging is not just a 'hi-tech pat-down.' Its potential takes what would be a pat-down and makes it into a secret, but intimate, visual examination—a surreptitious strip-search. Pat-downs and secret strip-searches are very different things, and it is not necessarily reasonable, where a pat-down might be called for, to use terahertz imaging."

"And that brings us to the fundamental problem with Commissioner Kelly’s proffer to use this technology at a 'specific event' or at a 'shooting-prone location.' These contexts do not create the individualized suspicion that Fourth Amendment law demands when government agents are going to examine intimate details of a person's body and concealed possessions." ...
