Sandy Froman: The history of gun control, part 2
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Until Lyndon Johnson came to the White House in 1963 following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, gun control was simply not a national issue. There were no significant federal gun control laws on the books, and the NRA was a shooter's organization that intentionally shied away from any political involvement."

"All of that changed with the 1968 assassinations of Sen. Robert Kennedy and civil rights leader Martin Luther King. In the civil unrest that followed, the media found a new whipping boy – America's gun owners. The media blitz against gun rights was unprecedented and became the driving force behind Democrat leaders proposing national gun control." ...

"My father, who was an educated man, used to often tell me that 'you can't argue with ignorance.' As I grow older these words seem to ring loud and clear at an alarming frequency."

"The commentary by Larry Gaber and Polly Archer ('Shooting holes in gun proponents' arguments,' June 1) is but another common example of this adage. I have also noticed several letters to the editor that reflect the same."

"Gaber and Archer must think themselves wise on the topic of firearms and our culture. Their lack of logic is astounding. They probably buy every false statistic and lie put out by the Brady Institute."

"Their rejection of the deterrence factor of firearms has been refuted over and over again by academic research. ..." ...

The Gun Bazaar of Pakistan. From VICE DVD.
Update: This gun market has nothing to do with terrorism nor does it have anything to do with the war on terror. So stop writing stupid comments. It's just a gun store in a town in Pakistan run by Pashtuns. If the United States felt it was a threat, then it would have been long gone. Duh!

"So what prevented anyone from taking this creature out of the dorms and off the streets?

"Katie Couric led Wednesday's CBS Evening News by trumpeting a victory for gun control and featuring a one-on-one interview with a gun control advocate. 'An historic alliance between Democrats and the NRA produces the first major new gun control bill in years,' Couric teased. 'Tonight, they're closing the loophole that allowed the Virginia Tech killer to buy his guns.' ..."

"After NRA Executive Director Wayne LaPierre got one sentence ... Couric turned to Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. She started by asking him to assess the effectiveness of the proposed new law before fretting that it doesn't go far enough: 'What about gun shows though? Won't they still be permitted to buy them there?' ..." ...

"Yesterday, Dr. Cavala wrote an article on gun shows and the effect it has on the seepage of crime guns into California. He made those comments because of a study released by Dr. Garen Wintimute at UC Davis. I want to fill in some of the observations Dr. Cavala made based on my somewhat unique knowledge on this issue."

"First, as to Nevada gun shows (and other gun shows I am not familiar about); most of what occurs thereat is probably illegal now under federal law for a slew of reasons. In fact, some have argued that unless California style controls are imposed on gun shows they should be shut down." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A suspect was killed during an armed robbery attempt in Balch Springs around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

The shooting was reported at the Big 5 grocery store in the 1400 block of Peachtree Road in Balch Springs, which is east of Dallas.

Authorities said the suspect entered the store with a shotgun, the clerk fought with the suspect and the suspect was killed.

Police said they have to plans to file charges against the clerk.

Submitter's Note-I hope the Balch Springs PD re-thinks their position to file charges. I guess it would have been OK for the thief to shoot and kill the clerk.

"Usually anything limiting access to guns isn't supported by gun owners, but in this case it's different."

"The law would improve states reporting mentally ill patients to the Criminal Background System, like in the case of the Virginia Tech shooter who was considered mentally ill, but the state did not report it to the Background System." ...

"The mass shooting at Virginia tech sent gun opponents into a tail spin, wanting to know why the shooter ... was allowed to buy a gun."

"Now the House has passed a bill that could become the first major gun law in ten years."

Suggs has been implicated in the murder of a payday loan clerk and the robbery and attempted murder of employees and customers of a Beach Park, IL, convenience store. Suggs is alleged to have committed these latest crimes only weeks after being released from prison after serving 5 years for felony theft."

"Wednesday started out as a routine day in the U.S. Congress, with Representatives attending congressional hearings, meeting with constituents, perhaps devising clever new ways to pick our pockets."

"At 8:30 in the morning an email went out to House Republicans indicating that a gun control bill, recently introduced by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), was on the Suspension Calendar (normally reserved for 'non-controversial' bills)."

"Many Representatives didn't see that email until it was too late. Less than three hours later, the bill passed by a voice vote. The bill in question, H.R. 2640, is a massive expansion of the Brady Gun Control law, the subject of many previous alerts by Gun Owners of America." ...

"In what could amount to the first — and fastest — bipartisan compromise of the 110th Congress to date, the House passed a bill Wednesday engendering one of the most politically-charged issues today: gun control."

"The bill authored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-NY — hardly a favorite of the gun rights movement — was co-sponsored by a handful of Republicans and bolstered by the National Rifle Association. It aims to strengthen the existing federal background check system to ensure that people who aren't supposed to be buying firearms get turned away at the point of the sale." ...
 

What Impact Will the Proposed New Law Regarding Screening Gun Purchasers Have on Gun Violence? (Gun Guys)

"As many of our readers know, a proposed law relating to background information on persons prohibited from owning guns due to mental illness has suddenly emerged in Congress ..." ...

"And, of course, the law doesn't in anyway affect the selling of guns on the secondary market, which is a huge source of weapons used in crime."

"Keeping guns out of the hands of mentally unstable people makes sense. Who could be against such a measure? But this legislation while pretending to keep guns out of the hands of mentally unstable people could actually create a bigger problem by putting in place a possibly ever-expanding ... mechanism that will put guns back into the hands of those prohibited from owning firearms under federal law." ...

"The House voted Wednesday to close a loophole in gun control laws that allowed the Virginia Tech gunman to buy firearms even though he had been committed to a mental hospital. The Senate is likely to follow suit, marking the first time since 1996 that Congress has approved a measure strengthening gun control."

"The bill’s approval, on a voice vote, came on the same day as the release of a report President Bush ordered after the shootings in April at Virginia Tech, in which a student killed 32 people and himself. The cabinet agencies that wrote the report found that schools, doctors and the police were not fully aware of what information could legally be shared in a web of confusing and overlapping privacy laws." ...

"It's a shame that it takes horrific killings to get Congress to address reasonable legislation to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people. But that seems to be the case with Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's effort to make the National Instant Criminal Background Check System work better. Her bill passed the House on a voice vote yesterday. Now it's up to Sen. Chuck Schumer to get it through the Senate."

"It's well known what brought McCarthy (D-Mineola) to Congress: the 1993 rush-hour massacre on the Long Island Rail Road that left her husband dead and her son seriously wounded. She has broadened her scope to include a portfolio of other issues, but she has never given up on doing something significant about guns." ...

"In a surprise move, the US House of Representatives today passed a bill which provides incentives for states to enhance and computerize criminal and mental health records and make such records available to the FBI's National Instant Check System (NICS)."

"While The Firearms Coalition has consistently opposed previous versions of this bill, we do not oppose the bill as it was passed by the House today."

"... This version of the bill ... differs from previous versions in that it includes several provisions for the removal of names arbitrarily added to the NICS list and to ensure ways for a person who is on the list to regain their rights. These provisions were negotiated by the NRA over the past several weeks." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Do not step on my Second Amendment rights and call yourself an American.

I have high regard for Robiner and his profession, but I disagree with his opinion on gun control. He should leave the gun ownership debate to people who really understand it.

I have owned and fired all kinds of weapons in the past 45 years. As we should all know, guns don't kill people; people kill people.

I know Robiner is disgusted and saddened by innocent people being killed; so am I.

But taking away guns is not the answer. Enforcing the gun laws we have now is.

How many times has a psychological determination let a criminal escape justice, only to kill again?

Let's put killers behind bars and keep them there, or execute them.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. — George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
