"In the fall 2013 edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Jane M. Orient, M.D., takes apart the long standing gun control advocate arguments of many medical groups to show that guns do not cause crime, people do. Orient looks at 'advocacy campaigns for 'treating gun violence' that have been sponsored by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Physicians (ACP) and says these groups have fashioned gun violence as a 'health problem' rather than a 'crime problem.' In so doing, they have avoided the real causes of violence and to pursue federal funding for research from an advocacy perspective . . ." ...

"Chicago's City Council will vote today on whether or not to repeal many of Chicago's most oppressive gun laws. The vote, in what the Chicago Tribune refers to as "the latest blow to the city's gun control efforts," is expected to be in favor of repeal, because the state's new concealed carry law leaves the city little choice in the matter, by preempting most local gun laws (with the notable exception of 'grandfathering' preexisting bans of so-called 'assault weapons')." ...

"There was no winner of the fight that dark, rainy night in Sanford. Only degrees of losing."

"When the President and the galaxy of movie stars extended their condolences to the Martin family after the verdict, we heard from them no sympathy for the defendant and his family. George Zimmerman’s life has been horribly and irreparably changed. We learn that a divorce is in progress, something not uncommon after traumas like what he and his family were put through. His loved ones at various times have been in hiding, subjected to the same death threats as George Zimmerman. The guy gets a warning for speeding in Texas and a ticket for 15 MPH over in Florida, and each time it’s national news. ..." ...

"One of the factors many anti-gun politicians overlook, is that firearms are a great business for our country. It saddens me that the amount of actual goods that are produced with a 'Made In The USA' tag attached are incredibly small, and most of the the items we wear and use on a daily basis come from overseas. Guns are one of the few industries left that actually manufactures and in the U.S. and sells to American people. Having guns produced here is great for the economy as it employs workers, uses local buildings and equipment, and the finished products generate sales tax for the fed and the state." ...

"We here at Twitchy wholeheartedly support the creation of a Celebrity NRA. Hollywood’s best and brightest can raid their studios’ prop departments for fake guns (and they have plenty, including fully automatic rifles), and then they can hit the range and fire blanks at straw men all day."

"'Funny or Die' is a video site where liberals go for political propaganda for those times when Jon Stewart just gets too serious and preachy. In today’s offering, 'NRA spokesperson' Sarah Silverman briefly puts aside her obsession with bodily hygiene to announce the creation of a 'black NRA,' to equip young black men with guns; after all, they need them the most." ...

"Finding the right holster is like finding the right pair of shoes — it takes time to find the one that fits you and your style. Blue Ridge Holsters is a relatively new player in the holster game and they’re coming out swinging with a nifty outside-the-waistband hybrid holster design that incorporates both hard kydex and soft leather to try and give you a 'best of both worlds' kind of experience and all for $55. They sent me one to review and after a couple months of carrying with it I’m finally ready to voice my opinion . . ." ...

"From a senior citizen's point of view, who does not have children living in my house to worry about, the advantages of using a light with my gun may be different than the average person. My main use of light is to have nightlights throughout the house so I can walk around my ranch house and see everyplace I go without the need to turn on additional lights. I prefer to be stealthy in my own home that I know better than any burglar."

"The nightlights that I use have rechargeable batteries built in so that if the power goes, they stay lite and can be removed from the outlets and used as powerful flashlights with the flick of a switch. So I always have my home lit. ..." ...

"It’s kind of amazing how being in a life and death situation can change one’s mind about firearm ownership in a split second."

"That’s exactly what happened in Palmview, TX several days ago."

"A pregnant woman ... was home alone when she heard someone banging loudly on her front door. Since she was home along, the woman did not answer the door, however at the same time, a second suspect was breaking into the home at the back door."

"Fearing for her life, the woman grabbed her husband’s .40SW handgun and called 911."

"Once the men saw the woman was armed, they fled back to their waiting truck. Wanting to make sure the intruders were gone for good, the woman opened fire on the truck as the men were getting in it." ...

"Legally speaking, anyone under 18 is a child. This is no minor point (so to speak). Gun control advocates count teenage gang-bangers—of which there are hundreds of thousands—as 'children.' Especially when they’re totting-up the number of 'gun violence' victims. California Dems are on the same page as these 'do it for the children' anti-gun agitators; using kids as an excuse to erode Americans’ right to keep and bear arms. To that end, the legislture just-passed bill AB-231. The bill amends California’s storage laws to increase penalties for unauthorized use of unsecured firearms.

... "Well, last week Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi decided to have another go at joining the hoary red-state gang of idiots in challenging federal rule, only this time the ante is being raised by the presence of our paranoid friends in the [NRA], because, holy shit, the Civil War never goes away. Bondi jumped on a suit filed with 22 other states – and, originally, two 19-year-olds – that seeks to challenge a 1968 federal law that forbids the sale of any guns to anyone under 18 by a licensed gun dealership, or the sale of handguns to anyone between the ages of 18 and 21. That second part, the states say, is an affront to state’s rights, and, therefore, a slippery slope coated in the blood of our founding fathers or something." ...

Piers was unusually restrained for the majority of the interview, but in the end, he could not resist the lure of his normal bombast. When the ridiculously photogenic Ms. Miller proved a match for him at debating facts about gun crime vs. gun ownership, he quickly changed the subject and spent the last third of the interview ranting about Iowa giving gun permits to the legally blind. Needless to say, Emily acquitted herself well on that topic, too . . ." ...

As a clear headed thinker I can easily show them report after report to show that this type of legislation is expensive, and costly. The end result will not make Californians any safer. Yet they pass these bills anyways, because it feels good. They are attacking the good law abiding people of California and no one seems to care.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
