Capture of Los Zetas chief highlights problems with 'gun control' narrative

"The head of the Zetas cartel has been captured by the Mexican navy ..."

"Also captured by the Marines, along with two accomplices, was '$2 million and eight automatic rifles.'"

"If that’s true, and ignorant or intentionally-spread media and political confusion (it’s increasingly difficult not to suspect deliberate and manipulative intent) is not at play in this report, it means that if the rifles were not converted after being smuggled into Mexico, chances are they will not be sourced to U.S. gun shops. And what that means is, the cartels are more than able to get all the military-grade weaponry and ordnance they want from other sources." ...

... "The present day 'living document' crowd has evidently determined that Madison, Hamilton, and Jay were really only kidding, and the things that they also set down on paper should be ignored. Meanwhile the presumptive séances that must be going on in the White House and the DOJ, which allows them to channel the thoughts of these Founders, should hold sway."

"A great deal of the discussion about just how 'living' our Constitution really is swirls around the 2nd Amendment. That famous Constitutional scholar, and semi-famous actor, Jeff Daniels recently opined on Piers Morgan's nightly tribute to his own colossal ego on CNN ..." ...

... "No discussion of stupid behavior would be complete without some mention of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. His latest cause célèbre is 'stand your ground' laws. From up on high comes these words of enlightenment: 'But one fact has long been crystal clear: 'shoot-first' laws like those in Florida can inspire dangerous vigilantism and protect those who act recklessly with guns… Last year, I joined a broad coalition of civic leaders to shine a light on the impact of 'shoot-first' laws and work to eliminate them… We will continue that work – and the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed child attempting to walk home from the store, will continue to drive our efforts.' Excuse me for a moment while I look for a barf bag." ...

As unpopulartruth.com points out, 'In the real Dodge City of history, there were five killings in 1878, the most homicidal year in the little town’s frontier history. In the most violent year in Deadwood, South Dakota, only four people were killed. In the worst year in Tombstone, home of the shoot-out at the OK Corral, only five people were killed. ...'

"I don’t think TASER is using 'stunning' in the Kirsten Weiss sense of the word. Still, the StrikeLight‘s a stunning development: a powerful flashlight that doubles as a time and meth-head-tested means of personal defense. It’s not the first nor the only nor cheapest stun gun flashlight but . . . given that plenty of America’s Armed Intelligentsia wouldn’t leave home without a flashlight, given that there are plenty of places where a concealed carry permit is harder to get than an engineering degree, given that carrying a flashlight stun gun is way more acceptable (and discreet) than carrying a TASER ... the dual purpose StrikeLight is destined to be a huge hit. Only not with the bad guys. Shocking, I know. ..." ...

... "But when George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, teenage pedestrian returning home one rainy February evening from a neighborhood convenience store, the NRA went mute. Neither NRA officials nor the pro-gun wing of the Republican Party argued that had Trayvon Martin been armed, he would be alive today. The basic facts are indisputable: Martin was on his way home when Zimmerman began to follow him ... Martin knew he was being followed and told his friend, Rachel Jeantel, that the man might be some kind of sexual predator. At some point, Martin and Zimmerman confronted each other, a fight ensued, and in the struggle Zimmerman shot and killed Martin." ...

A bit more than three months later, that effort seems to have accelerated, with another toy gun 'buy back' last Saturday offering three places at which to turn in the toys, for parents who wish to forcibly disarm their children's imaginations." ...

"Just over a month ago, St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner predicted that the Santa Monica College shooting on June 7, in which five people were killed and several more injured, would provoke efforts to regulate the '80% complete' lower receiver market. This is because the shooter, who ... could not legally buy guns, had apparently built his AR-15 from such a receiver."

"The lower receiver of an AR-15 is the gun, for legal purposes, so all the remaining necessary parts can be bought without background checks or the government's permission (or even knowledge). An incomplete lower receiver, though, is also not considered a gun, so it too can be bought and sold as just what it is--an inert hunk of metal." ...

"The last time Colorado enacted gun control measures was in the wake of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, and once the laws were on the books there was little acrimony."

"The state's latest batch of gun control laws — coming after a gunman's deadly rampage at a suburban Denver movie theater a year ago — has sparked a struggle over guns that shows little signs of fading. Gun rights advocates are trying to recall two state senators who backed the package, and dozens of GOP county sheriffs are suing to overturn it." ...

"Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. strongly condemned “stand your ground” laws Tuesday, saying the measures 'senselessly expand the concept of self-defense' and may encourage 'violent situations to escalate.'"

"The statutes, which have been enacted in more than 30 states, have become the focus of a complicated national debate over race, crime and culpability since the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old, by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla. The volunteer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted of murder charges Saturday." ...
-------

Submitter's comment: "Stand Your Ground" was not used in Zimmerman's defense.

KABA Note: In fact "Stand Your Ground" was completely irrelevant to the Zimmerman case; there is no "duty to retreat" when you have no ability to retreat, like when someone is sitting on your chest bashing your head against the ground.

"Attorney General Eric Holder took aim Tuesday at "Stand Your Ground"-style laws — such as the one that figured into the George Zimmerman case — saying they may encourage violence and 'undermine public safety.'"

"'It's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,' Holder said in a speech to the NAACP in which he again called the death of Trayvon Martin 'unnecessary.'"

"'These laws try to fix something that was never broken,' he said." ...
