Facts don't support 'universal background checks,' but advocates don't care

"A law mandating so-called 'universal background checks,' the term that proponents clearly hope to be more palatable than the more honest 'outright ban of private firearms sales,' has been the most aggressively pursued goal of forcible citizen disarmament advocates. Unfortunately for them, recent high-profile shootings have not readily lent themselves to effective exploitation for that agenda. With exploitation of such shootings being the biggest arrow in their quiver, as outlined in their 'playbook,' this is obviously a problem for them." ...

... "Despite all the double-talk, and the blatantly false assertions of declining crime in the U.K., one underlying theme seems to permeate the picture: the matter of accurate reporting of crime has been reduced from the level of any degree of accuracy to the level of simple expediency—and accuracy of any sort be damned!"

"If Morgan is correct about the U.K.’s crime statistics, why are so many Brits afraid, now? ..." ...

"In 1994, when Arizona started its shall issue concealed carry weapon (CCW) program, there was considerable interest in how many and what types of homicides would be related to the new law." ...

"When the first statistics became available, I eagerly digested the information. One person with a CCW permit had committed a homicide, although not with a concealed weapon. It was a domestic situation, and the perpetrator was a retired police officer. The question arose, how often do police officers commit homicide compared to concealed carry permit holders? Of the two, which is more common?" ...

It appears that a person is three times safer with a concealed carry permit holder than they are with a police officer.

"The Law of the Sea Treaty. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. When it comes to international agreements that may seem harmless until you read the fine print, the United Nations' Arms Trade Treaty has plenty of company. Like the aforementioned pacts, this treaty has been signed by the United States, but not ratified by the Senate."

"Nor is it likely to be. That doesn't mean, though, it won't prove damaging to the United States and its interests."

"The Arms Trade Treaty has numerous flaws. Start with the most obvious: the fact that it won't do what it sets out to do ..." ...
 

NRA should take the lead in reducing mass murders

"The National Rifle Association is always looking for violations of the Second Amendment to the Constitution, but I am sure it also wants to protect its members from mass murderers. In the past few years we have seen an epidemic of mass murders. So far in 2013 there were five mass murders with 36 fatalities. But buying more guns, as NRA promotes, has not stopped these mass murders. Mother Jones reports (www.motherjones.com) that, in 2007, Virginia Tech shooting had the highest number of fatalities (33), followed by 22 murders in the Newtown massacre in 2012. These murders and other homicides represent a substantial loss of human capital and loss of well being of victims’ families, who face life-altering hardships." ...

"Notwithstanding a great deal of negative publicity—or maybe partly because of it—Sunday’s RI GOP 2nd Amendment Celebration Raffle was a success, according to Michael Napolitano, RI GOP Communications Director."

"Napolitano told GoLocal that over $20,000 was raised in event and raffle proceeds. Additionally, roughly 500 people attended the event throughout yesterday."

"Despite a great deal of ire expressed by some of Rhode Island’s political leaders over the fact that the event raffled off a AR-15-style assault-style rifle, Napolitano told GoLocal that there were no protestors at the event." ...

"Hudak was a staunch supporter of the strict gun control laws passed earlier this year in Colorado."

"More zero tolerance nonsense from our schools."

"Yesterday, Adam Kokesh arrived in federal court for a pre-trial hearing as a result of being arrested at his residence in Herndon, VA on July 9, 2013 for performing an act of civil disobedience on July 4, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Kokesh's case is expected to go to trial on October 24, 2013 and he has been in federal custody since July 26, 2013 as he was denied bail." ...

"Kokesh is expected to use his trial to inform the public of their right to nullify laws they find unjust.

"So, NFL games just got safer right? If by safer you mean that virtually no one inside of an NFL stadium would be able to defend themselves, then sure, I guess they’re safer."

"The NFL has always had a longstanding no weapons policy for us mere civilians and even goes a far as to search bags and use metal detectors in some situations. Nothing like being made to feel like you’re entering a high security prison before taking in a sporting event."

"Now the NFL has extended that no weapons policy ..." ...

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