The Teen Killer Who Radicalized the NRA

Harlon Carter, “Mr. NRA,” the man who turned America’s national rifle club into its formidable gun lobby, knew guns could kill people—including the 15-year-old Mexican kid he blew away with a shotgun when he was 17. Believe it or not, the National Rifle Association began in 1871 committed to “Firearms Safety Education, Marksmanship Training, Shooting for Recreation”—according to the sign displayed for years at its national headquarters. Its famous lobby sign with the edited version of the militia-less Second Amendment—“… the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed”—only came a century later.

Another sickening mass shooting, and another dispiriting round of debates about the place of guns in American life. And, just as many of the gun-control measures proposed are not germane to the events people wish to see stopped, neither are many of the arguments about gun rights generally. Charles Cooke has taken on Bret Stephens. Rich Lowry has also examined the “passionate non sequiturs.” And, I suppose it falls to me to take on the assertion, made in the New York Times by Michael Schermer, that guns in the hands of citizens aren’t a bulwark against tyranny.
 

After Las Vegas, the Gun Grabbers are Serious but Dishonest

A murderer killed innocent people in Las Vegas. This was a horrific attack that caught our attention and drew our sympathy. That is why the anti-rights spokesmen repeated their usual ineffective proposals to disarm the people who didn’t do it. The gun grabbers want to fill our opinions at a time when we feel empty and none of us have answers.

The anti-rights spokesmen made their usual claims.

None. Of. Those. Would. Change. A. Thing.

Here is what we know would work to deter the next mass murderer.

In the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, some Metro Detroit law enforcement and advocates are stressing the need to explore measures locally and nationally to address gun violence.

Issues surrounding safety in public spaces in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas were at the forefront of a Friday night panel discussion in Detroit. Nearly 60 concertgoers were killed Sunday and over 500 injured when a gunman opened fire on a crowd during a country music performance.

“I will guarantee you that there was not one person who went to that concert in Las Vegas who thought for one second that they were in danger. … ,”

Yesterday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews was incredulous that Conservatives actually believe that the rights found in the Constitution come from God. On his show Hardball, Matthews accused the GOP of being a party of “fanatics” who want virtually no limits on the kinds of weapons a citizen can possess.

In the aftermath of the worst mass shooting in American history, the news media turned to wisest among us to seek calm words that would unify a heartbroken nation. Nah. They turned to newly promoted, left-wing hack and occasional funnyman Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel, you’ll recall, served as the Democratic mouthpiece on ObamaCare recently. So he was all primed to do so again.

There is, by now, a grim routine to all of this.
That’s how frequently it happens, how unremarkable it has become in America for some lunatic with a gun to shoot up a public place: we have evolved a script for it. Take Sunday night’s massacre in Las Vegas — 58 people killed by the shooter, who also died, and nearly 500 wounded and injured —as an example.

After a year of buying guns from residents throughout Northern New Mexico in an effort to reduce the number of firearms in the region’s homes, a local nonprofit hosted a celebration Saturday evening to showcase artwork made from the scraps of weapons that had been dismantled. The event, a night of music, poetry and art held at the Center for Contemporary Arts, came as the nation continued to mourn victims of last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nev. The art, a total of 10 pieces, was forged by welding students and faculty at Santa Fe Community College.

Gun control has been a significant topic of discussion for lawmakers since Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas. Investigators think Stephen Paddock used a device known as a bump stock to turn his semi-automatic rifles into fully automatic weapons. Many are now calling for a ban on bump stocks to prevent this type of tragedy from happening again.

The massacre in Las Vegas has put a Clinton business in the crosshairs of a national debate. South Whidbey Arms announced on Facebook Wednesday that since the tragedy it had been repeatedly harassed by people who want either the business to limit its inventory or simply to close altogether. Some expressed their thoughts through phone calls, others with their fingers as they passed by the store’s front doors.

It’s been almost a week since a gunman killed 58 people and injured hundreds more in Las Vegas. The shooter used a device called a bump stock to modify his gun so that it could function as an machine gun. Politicians have unified around one thing: further regulations around the bump stock. But dealers at a gun show in St. Charles this weekend said the demand for the bump stock is up.

Just as quickly as news broke last week of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, Democrats, progressives and those opposed to the Second Amendment were talking gun control. The debate rages after any publicized gun crime, and almost always circles back to two talking points. Gun control advocates say people shouldn’t be able to have “military-grade” weapons, while Second Amendment supporters say a gun didn’t kill the victims — a person did.
 

MSNBC Analyst: It’s Harder in America to Buy Cough Medicine Than to Buy an AK-47

MSNBC analyst Steve Schmidt claimed Friday it's harder to buy cough medicine in America than to buy 50 AK-47 assault rifles. Appearing as a panelist on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher," Schmidt stepped into a discussion on gun control and the Second Amendment in the wake of last Sunday's Las Vegas massacre with this odd statement. Following up fellow MSNBC analyst Harold Ford, Jr., Schmidt said the country's founding fathers could no more conceive of AK-47s or AR-15s capable of automatic fire than "they could've conceived a spaceship," Mediaite reports.

Guns and tasers are both big sellers to law enforcement agencies and consumers, but their manufacturers' stocks have very different qualities for investors. Gun sales are extremely cyclical. They rise when Democrats are in national office or after unusually publicized mass shootings take place, and fall when Republicans have control of the gun control discussion.

Sen. Tom Carper (D-Delaware) said the federal government should do more to prevent mass shootings. He wants to ban a device called a bump stock. Bump stocks allow a semiautomatic rifle to fire as fast as an automatic rifle. The devices are considered legal because they don’t turn a firearm into an automatic, it just allows it to fire bullets faster.

During an October 8 appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) stressed that requiring a background check for every gun sale—retail and private—is the “North Star” for Democrats regarding gun control. In other words, the Democrats’ ultimate goal is to pass a law that will require every gun purchaser to pass the same background the Las Vegas attacker passed to acquire his firearms.
 

What Every Progressive Should Know About Country Music’s ‘Gun Culture’

In the wake of the Las Vegas attack at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, the culture of country music and its relationship with guns has come under a lot of scrutiny as policymakers, the media, pundits, and just ordinary people try and make sense of this senseless act of violence.
Keep in mind that country music had absolutely nothing to do with Stephen Paddock’s motives. In fact, it’s been reported that Paddock booked a hotel room in Chicago that overlooked the Lollapalooza Festival as well as a high-rise condo in Vegas that was near the Life is Beautiful music festival.

I have been a gun control activist for 20 years. Every time I speak out on the need for stricter gun laws, I get a new profusion of threats. There’s always plenty of the garden-variety “your dad would be ashamed of you” sexist nonsense, along with the much more menacing threats to my family and personal safety.

What Michigan's federal lawmakers think

Several members of Michigan's Congressional delegation expressed support for looking into the legality of bump stocks.

In a statement posted to Facebook, U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, said "we cannot with a straight face justify the legality of bump stocks."

A spokesperson for U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Tipton, said the Congressman, a gun owner, was "previously unaware of bump stocks and believes that they should be looked at with greater scrutiny."

U.S. Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Southfield, said she is a cosponsor on legislation that would ban devices that can turn semi-automatic weapons into automatic weapons.

The Dispatch reports the Buckeye Firearms Association and Ohioans for Concealed Carry say a ban would be a threat to American gun rights.
