Why Gun Control Can't Eliminate Gun Violence

"Nothing that gun-control advocates are pushing for in Congress would have prevented Monday's shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard. And unless this country bans all personal ownership of guns, another mass shooting will occur."

"This is the greatest hurdle for the gun-control movement. They seek changes to the law that a majority of the public supports—expanded background checks, an assault weapons ban, and limits on high-capacity ammunition. But they are up against formidable opponents in the gun-rights groups. And the only time they get to talk about it is after a splashy, tragic incident that does not represent the bulk of gun deaths—suicides, street crimes, accidents." ...
 

In rush to push agenda, 'gun control' advocates ensure that truth is a casualty

"Perhaps even before the bodies of the slain were removed from the Washington Navy Yard Monday, the forcible citizen disarmament advocates were in full blood-dancing vulture form. This is precisely in accord with the 'manual' of 'gun control,' first reported by Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman, and later covered here. So, for example, the forcible citizen disarmament 'playbook' offers the following bit of advice to gun prohibitionists, to be followed in the aftermath of a high-profile shooting incident, a time, the manual says, that 'creates a unique climate for our communications efforts':" ...

"While we'll never completely eliminate gun violence in the United States, we can work to reduce the carnage."

"That was the point made by Dr. Michael Shermer and Dr. John Lott during a debate over gun control hosted by Penn State Berks on Wednesday night. Shermer argued for some more regulations on gun ownership, while Lott argued against tighter gun control laws." ...

"Now that the Washington Navy Yard shooter is known, contrary to early, hysterical reports, not to have been armed with an AR-15, or any other so-called 'assault weapon,' the forcible citizen disarmament jihadists will be forced to find a new way to exploit the atrocity. Even worse for the blood-dancing vultures, the killer bought the gun from a gun shop, after passing the federally mandated background check, rendering this outrage more or less useless as an argument for 'universal background checks.'" ...

"This is a radical column, so prepare to be offended. All I ask is that you read the entire piece before firing angry missives in my direction."

"So here goes. In the aftermath of yet another massacre, this time at the Washington Navy Yard, shouldn’t we all be asking the same question: Why do we Americans perpetuate a society in which thousands of people are killed every year with firearms — most of them through suicides, mishaps or individual crimes — and in which every few months there is another mass shooting?"

"This is not an indictment of guns. It is an indictment of the American people. Of politicians. Of industry groups." ...
 

Seven Suggestions for Effective Dry Fire Practice

"Dry fire practice is an enormously important part of effective firearms training. Many quality firearms instructors encourage a 70-30 dry fire regimen: spend 70% of your training time dry firing and 30% shooting. Recently, I was out of town conducting a tactics and medical class for a group of physicians who volunteer as SWAT medics for the departments in their area. As always, on the first day, I made a point of telling them to make sure they spend time dry firing. That evening after dinner I wandered down to the communal area and found three of my students settled in on a couch, watching a ball game, occasionally clicking their unloaded pistols at the television between grabs at the pretzel basket . . ." ...

"'No one tragedy — no matter how horrible — is going to be enough to create the sustained public will that’s necessary to create change on this issue.' And there you have it. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence admits to politico.com that waving the bloody shirt won’t git 'er done in terms of civilian disarmament. This is not a view shared by The Mayors Against Illegal Guns. 'I think the country and indeed the president have reached the tipping point not because of one mass shooting but because of ... more and more mass shootings,' said MAIG’s Mark Glaze. ... I’m gonna disagree with both of these anti-gun agitators. The left is waiting, anticipating even, a spree killing that ticks off all the 'right' boxes . . ." ...

"'Navy Issues Security Clearances To Delusional Paranoiacs With Multiple Gun Arrests'"

"Posted on September 17, 2013"

"The DC shooter had two gun arrests, including one where he fired a bullet into his neighbor’s apartment and didn’t even bother to check on her. He suffered from delusional paranoia, heard voices, and had a security clearance and a concealed carry license. And the Navy let him slip through security yesterday carrying a rifle." ...

"A few days after last year's massacre at Newtown, Conn., we observed: "Every time one of these horrible shooting sprees occurs, countless voices in the media declaim that (1) we need a debate on gun control, and (2) the other side's views are despicable, stupid and unworthy of consideration." It's happening again, in reaction to Monday's murders at the Washington Navy Yard. But it's strikingly muted by comparison with the post-Newtown frenzy." ...

"After becoming involved in the heated gun control debate in the U.S., the CEO of the American coffee company Starbucks requested in an open letter late Tuesday that patrons stop bringing firearms into store locations. The letter did not, however, issue an outright ban on firearms in stores."

"While several other coffee shops and grocery stores have outright policy bans on civilians carrying firearms in stores, such as Whole Foods and Peet's Coffee & Tea, Starbucks' past policy has been to follow local 'open carry' laws for firearms, allowing customers to carry firearms in states where it is permitted and prohibiting it in states without open carry laws." ...

... "Gun-rights activists in Newton, Conn. ... tried to stage a 'Starbucks Appreciation Day,' with customers planning to bring their firearms to purchase coffee. When Starbucks learned of the demonstration, they closed the store early."

"This 'Appreciation Day' 'disingenuously portray[s] Starbucks as a champion of 'open carry,' Schultz writes of the incident. 'To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores.'"

"That said, it's important to note that this request is a request, 'not an outright ban.'"

"'Why? Because we want to give responsible gun owners the chance to respect our request ...' he continues." ...

"A pro-gun control group has slammed Texas Gov. Rick Perry for 'inappropriate timing,' calling it 'callous' for him to visit a Beretta USA gun factory just two days after a mass shooting left a dozen innocent people dead at the nearby Washington Navy Yard." ...

"'Listen, there’s always anti-gun individuals,' Perry responded, asked about the criticism after meeting with business leaders and top Maryland Republicans at Morton’s steakhouse in Bethesda, in suburban Washington. 'The fact is, I’m a pro-Second Amendment guy. Texas is a pro-Second Amendment state. Beretta has been a great manufacture in Maryland and they feel not only under-appreciated, they feel under attack.'" ...

"One House of Delegates candidate from Bethesda, Jordan Cooper, issued a proposal Wednesday that lives up to the worst fears of gun owners. But it might have appeal inside the Beltway in the district now represented by Sen. Brian Frosh, floor leader of the new control law."

"Cooper’s plan includes a total ban on assault rifles, biennial renewal of gun licenses, and government confiscation of guns not properly licensed or renewed." ...
