Dishonest Humanitarianism? The Invalid Assumptions Behind The United Nations’ Small Arms Control Initiatives
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
... "The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is mired in controversy, rumor, and misinformation among both gun-rights activists and anti-gun crusaders. Jeff Moran of TSM WorldWide has been monitoring this situation along with several other groups including the Second Amendment Foundation and the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR). In 'Dishonest Humanitarianism? The invalid assumptions behind the United Nations’ small arms control initiatives,' Moran cites numerous examples of propaganda used by the supporters of the anti-gun treaty."

"Moran details the specifics of the ATT, and invalidates the generalizations associated with global small arms and ammunition trade. ..." ...

Ladd Everitt: Liar for Hire

"Ladd Everitt, the Director of Communications for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence , is earning his pay once again. His latest screed, Why ‘Stand Your Ground’ is really ‘Kill at Will’, is a breathtaking example of the antis’ stock in trade: half-truths, untruths and flat out lies with a liberal sprinkling of logical fallacies. To wit: 'What do you call a law that allows a person to shoot and kill another human being when they could otherwise walk away safely? I can only call it immoral.' When he starts the journey that way, you know it’s going to be a bumpy ride . . ." ...

... "Elizabeth Samet teaches future military officers ... Samet borrows a phrase from Edmund Burke to describe a cultural model she locates in the 19th century American military: liberal obedience. 'Freely given and prompted by a love of country, liberal obedience cannot partake simply of restricted professional and technical, or immediate, circumstantial considerations,' she writes. 'It must be entirely compatible with the intellectual enlargement that distinguishes the liber, or free man.'"

"The very thing that Americans most feared after their revolution was the possibility of unthinking obedience from armed men following charismatic leaders. Citizens of a republic gave their loyalty to republican principles, not to men. ..." [emphasis added] ...

"The second day of class with Aaron focused less on the mechanics of shooting and more on practical field applications as well as tips, tricks, and rules of thumb. Whereas Day 1 was filled with 'good to know' information, the information from Day 2 is immediately applicable to daily shooting conditions. One of the reader comments on the Day 1 article asked if this was just a cool thing to do or whether I’d be able to go home and shoot at 900 yards. I'll stick to the same format as Day 1, and you can judge for yourself. As always, we report, you decide . . . between 700 and 800 yards, and finally some small-scale elk silhouettes at 880 . . ." ...

"It’s been a year and a half since I first shot the S&W Governor at SHOT Show 2011, and since then I’ve not really messed around with it too much. I shot one at the S&W Indoor Nationals earlier this year as part of a pick up stage, but that was it. Because our friends at West Coast Armory happened to have one in the rental case and I also happened to be in possession of some top of the line Winchester PDX .45 Colt ammo, I figured it was time to give it a whirl for real. Unfortunately, what I didn’t have with me was a good camera, so you’ll have to bear with the mediocre cell phone pictures." ...

In that spirit Gaston J. Glock, son of the founder of the Glock has started another company, GASTON J. GLOCK Style."

The Timeless Stackbarrel: Hideout Guns From Bond Derringers

"Derringers; they were the short tanto to the long katana of the Colt Peacemaker in the eyes of my generation, which grew up on 1950s TV Westerns. Paladin carried one for backup, it was Yancy Derringer’s namesake, and, in a Western movie, Robert Mitchum played an outlaw preacher who packed a Derringer in a hollowed-out Bible."

"The double-barrel, single-action Remington Derringer endures, and may reach its zenith in the Bond Arms series. Many have called Bond the Cadillac of Derringers. Updated with a cross-bolt safety and a rebounding hammer to cure the ancient original’s notorious tendency to go off when dropped, and the Bond guns even offer models with triggerguards—a feature that cures yet another Derringer safety concern." ...

"Since he took office in 2002, Bloomberg has championed draconian gun control laws and aggressive police procedures including a highly controversial ‘stop-and-frisk’ policy. The hope was that by adopting these highly invasive and Constitutionally dubious initiatives, gun violence in the Big Apple would come to a screeching halt."

"Following on the heels of a front-page New York Times article on microstamping, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence today called attention to a new peer-reviewed, independent expert study on microstamping confirming the technology works and that it is an important tool for law enforcement to solve violent gun crimes. The study, ... published in the Spring 2012 edition of the Association of Firearm and Toolmark Examiners (AFTE) Journal, found that all six letter and numbers imprinted on shell casings when a gun was fired, could be read at least 87 percent of the time. The benefits of microstamping dramatically increase when multiple shell casings are recovered at a crime scene. ..." ...

"Historically, when contempt charges are pending, the matter is resolved by the individual supplying Congress with the information it has asked for."

"In this case, the contempt charge(s) will most likely end with Holder giving Congress SOME of the information it has asked for and therefore the contempt charges will not be pursued while Congress examines the new information given. When it is realized that they do not have all the documents requested, contempt charges will once again come to the forefront. Eric Holder and the Obama administration can employ this delaying tactic as long as needed." ...
