CCRKBA Condemns 'Them v. Us' Homeland Security 'Assessment'
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

"A volatile 'assessment' of so-called 'Rightwing Extremism' by the Obama administration's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is an insult to political conservatives, military veterans and American gun owners, and demands an immediate apology, the [CCRKBA] said today."

"'We recognize that many conservative gun owners will feel threatened by this Obama administration report,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. 'It appears that DHS under Janet Napolitano is trying to demonize political dissent.'"

"The chilling nine-page document labels citizens opposed to new firearms restrictions, returning veterans and conservatives as 'rightwing extremists' and associates them with white supremacists and violent antigovernment groups." ...

The professional liars at the Southern Poverty Law Center are experts at conflation. You might say they've made quite a tidy pile of money at it. As you can see from the picture above of their shiny headquarters, there ain't much "poverty" about them. They have amassed hundreds of millions of dollars in their bank acounts selling conflation over the years. . . (W)hat we are witnessing today is the institutionalization of their conflation narrative from the highest levels of U.S. enforcement all the way down to the cop on the beat. SPLC's deliberate twisting of facts and prejudice are now accepted as gospel and are ready, for one example, to be executed at the point of a Missouri highway patrolman's gun.

"According to George Mason, father of the Bill of Rights, we are about to be enslaved, as he said, 'What is the militia? It is the whole person. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them'. According to Soviet Communist Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin 'one person with a gun can control one hundred without one.'"

"The writing has been on the wall and hard-working, law-abiding Americans are MUCH less inclined to tolerate the diabolical legislation and hypocritical statements pouring out of the White House in record numbers. We're lectured constantly about accountability and 'reform' from people who refuse to be accountable and have offered nothing except for out of control government spending ..." ...

"My recent experience wearing a kydex holster got me to thinking back to when I bought my first holster. They say most people who carry a gun for personal protection have a box full of holsters that didn't work. For me, I kind of lucked out because I hit a home run on my first swing." ...

"I had done a lot of research on the internet while my boss was on vacation, and learned all about the pitfalls which could lead to the proverbial box o' holsters. I learned about the different types of materials and the pros and cons of each. I decided that an inside-the-waistband (IWB) type was right for me as they tend to be more concealable and less prone to accidental exposure." ...

... "Here's another reason why gun sales are on the rise: Americans are convinced that politicians aren't going to do anything about gun violence. Sixty-five members of his own party in the House of Representatives have urged the president not to resurrect the assault weapons ban that expired under George W. Bush. ..."

"Most of us are also convinced that there are too many angry, ill and violent people in our midst, and that they have easy access to guns. ..." ...

"We have in our midst millions of one-man militias - trusting no one, cynical about life in a changing society, convinced of the likelihood of more dysfunction and gun violence, and convinced, above all, that few in elected office have the guts to do anything about it."

"In a recent 'commentary' posted on CNN.com, National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre dismissed statements from U.S. and Mexican government officials that, based on firearms tracing data from the ... [ATF], Mexico's drug cartels obtain 90 percent or more of their firearms from the United States." ...

"Well, believe it Wayne. Illegal gun traffickers are more than happy to 'trifle with paperwork at U.S. gun stores.' ..." ...

KABA Note: But Josh, didn't your own Tom Diaz (senior policy analyst at the Violence Policy Center) call the 90% figure a red herring when it was shown that the correct figure is closer to 17%?
 

Dr. Dustin Ballard: Guns - they're a smoldering public health issue
Submitted by: Anonymous

... "Now, you may be wondering why I am writing a medical column about firearms. The simple answer is that I believe gun violence should be considered a public health issue rather than a political one. Wintemute and other experts in the field have long argued that bullets should be viewed as pathogens - like bacteria or tumors. If one views the problem through this lens, targeted restrictions on firearms are preventive medicine, rather than an affront on personal liberty." ...
-------

KABA Note: Dr. Ballard why do you ignore the defensive uses of such 'pathogens'? Just as bacteria can be used in vaccines, so armed citizens can be used qagainst these mass public shootings. Otherwise why has every such shooting occurred in 'gun free' zones?

"I love to shoot guns as much as the next red-blooded American -- hunting rifles at home in Vermont with friends, Glocks in Pittsburgh with cousins; I understand the excitement and the rush and the eventual calm that shooting enthusiasts so enjoy. But at no point in my life have I ever felt compelled to carry or own a gun."

"Since Barack Obama has taken office, gun sales across America have surged. Firearm purchases under a Democratic president appear absolutely recession proof."

"What is this American fixation with firearms? Is it similar to the macho car fanaticism that's so prevalent here but rather absent elsewhere in the world?" ...
 

Are U.S. Gun Laws to Blame for Violence in Mexico?

"A recent explosion of drug-related violence in Mexico killed thousands of people last year, dangerously destabilizing America's southern border. Some people, including many in Congress, believe the violence is being fueled in part by weak U.S. gun laws that allow powerful firearms to reach Mexico. But gun rights advocates see this connection as tenuous at best, and believe the violence in Mexico is being used to scare the public into supporting unnecessary domestic gun control laws. Would stronger gun laws in the U.S. stem the violence in Mexico?"

"Gun control advocates look desperate. Last Friday night, on April 10, ABC aired a heavily promoted, hour long '20/20' special called 'If I Only Had a Gun.' It is ABC's equivalent of NBC's infamous exploding gas tanks in [GM] pickups where NBC rigged the truck to explode. ..."

"The show started and ended by claiming that allowing potential victims to carry guns would not help keep them safe –- not even with hundreds of hours of practice firing guns."

"No mention was made of the actual multiple victim public shootings stopped by people with concealed handguns ... Instead, ABC presented a rigged experiment where one student in a classroom had a gun. But sometimes even the best editors can't hide everything the camera sees." ...

"When it comes to the futility of addressing the epidemic of inner-city violence with impotent gun control laws, it would seem there are at least a two people at the Cleveland Plain Dealer who 'get it.'"

"Last year Plain Dealer columnist Regina Brett's series on the thug culture earned her title as a top-three finalist for the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Commentary, and since then she has written articles that prove she 'gets it.'"

"Plain Dealer editorial writer Phillip Morris, on the other hand, has a more spotty history of support for armed citizens. But his latest op-ed indicates that he is now prepared to join Brett in the effort to lead the newspaper into becoming a positive force for change in the city of Cleveland." ...

"In a word, no."

"It's not correct. The 90% figure was originally based upon a misunderstanding, and thereafter it has been constantly repeated ..."

"According to a spokeswoman for the ATF ... 'over 90 percent of the traced firearms originate from the U.S.'"

"And maybe, Republican Rep. Todd Tiahrt will change his stance on controversial gun legislation, too, Roefaro said." ...

"The legislation Roefaro was referring to is known as the Tiahrt Amendment. Critics say the law makes it harder for law enforcement to track illegal guns because it restricts the tracking of them."

"The amendment was introduced by Sen. Beau McCoy of Omaha whose decision was prompted by recent shootings and violence at other churches."
