  • Allan Tweddle: Gun control versus car control

    The Second Amendment was written when only single-shot muskets and pistols were available, and they were far more critical in hunting for food than any hunting weapon is today. In 1776, the young nation’s leaders could not afford a standing army, so adopted the Swiss model of requiring certain citizens to be armed to maintain a ready and standby militia, and have the weapons of the day in their possession to enable that militia to assemble quickly if there was an external or internal threat. Hence, that’s what the American Founding Fathers clearly intended the Second Amendment to support. Today,...

    Some assault rifles used by the Islamic militants in the Nov 13 Paris attacks and later seized in police raids were produced in the former Yugoslavia’s state arsenal, the company’s director said on Saturday. Milojko Brzakovic, director of the Zastava (Banner) Arms factory in the city of Kragujevac in central Serbia, said that they were part of a batch of M70 assault rifles, a improved Yugoslav copy of the Soviet-designed AK47, produced in 1987 and 1988.

    A pediatric emergency medicine physician is urging doctors to join the effort for gun control by asking about gun ownership while performing health histories on their patients. A panel titled “The Tipping Point: Activating a Public Health Movement to Address Gun Violence” was featured at the American Public Health Association (APHA)’s 2015 annual meeting in Chicago earlier in November. The panel called for a view of gun violence as a public health emergency situation.

    One man is dead after a shooting Wednesday in Aiken. Coroner Tim Carlton said Frank Frazier Jr., 23, was fatally shot at 1pm, Wednesday on Willis Hill Road in Aiken. According to witnesses, a couple was purchasing a car from Frazier that was posted in a Craigslist ad. It is then alleged Fraizer and an acquaintance of his each pulled gun on the couple in an attempt to rob the couple. The woman in response pulled her gun and shot Frazier and the other man fled from the scene. The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the matter.

    Fans of mindless authoritarianism are having a pretty good month. The New York Times reports: Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters....

    The real problem does not lie with these refugees seeking help from America. The real problem lies in the accessibility terrorists have to guns in this country. Rep. Tony Dale, a Republican congressman for the state of Texas, expressed that one of his top concerns about the refugee situation is how easy it is to buy a gun in his state. Dale is not wrong. The availability of guns for anyone in America, even legally, is nonsensical. According to the Government Accountability Office, between 2004 and 2014, 91 percent of the time suspected terrorists attempted to buy guns in America...

    What might have happened if a few of the 1,500 concert attendees in Paris' Bataclan theater had guns? The terrorists had time to kill, reload and kill again. The police unit didn't come for more than a half hour. If a few people in the theater were armed, might they have killed the killers? We'll never know. France's guns laws say you may not carry a gun unless police certify that you are "exposed to exceptional risks of harm" to your life. Few people even bother to apply. Fortunately, in America, laws in every state now allow adults to carry...

    Having overwhelmingly lost the public debate about whether the Obama administration’s Syrian refugee screening policy should be enhanced, Democrats have retreated to more comfortable rhetorical ground: demanding more gun control. Their new secret weapon? A bill that would ban anyone whose name appears on a terror watch list from buying or possessing a firearm. The idea sounds reasonable enough until you dig into the details and realize that the proposed Democratic legislation is a shocking assault on the constitutional right to due process. What makes the proposal even worse is that the Democrats’ assault on due process isn’t necessary to...

    Instead of voting to "encumber and bog down the refugee process," Republicans should go along with a Democrat demand to bar people on a secret government list from buying guns, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday. Earnest said the Republican plan to beef up the vetting of refugees will not improve national security: "Again, if Congress were actually interested in doing that, they'd pass a law that would prevent somebody who's on the terror watch list from being able to buy a gun. That's what Congress should do. "And as people are sitting around the Thanksgiving table, talking...

    [..]This ignores the fact of how stupid terrorist watch lists are because they don't do the job the government claims they're supposed to. The Intercept (which isn't exactly a conservative or libertarian publication) got hold of the National Counterterrorism Center guidelines for putting people on watch lists last year. Some of these guidelines includes social media and what 'walk-ins' say, even if government employees are told not to use hunches.So, yes, you might be on a terrorist watch list if you tweet, Facebook, or use other social media sites to post an article someone doesn't like. The rules are so...

By contrast, the NRA and its supporters spent less than $600,000. Additional support for the Washington initiative came from other foundations and a short list of billionaire donors, including more than $1 million from Napster co-founder Sean Parker. Similar measures proposed this year in Nevada and Maine suggest more of the same.

When asked why he passed such a broad bill, Brownback offered great rationale: "Kansans soon can carry concealed weapons without permits or training under a bill signed by Gov. Sam Brownback on Thursday. The new law, which kicks in July 1, makes Kansas the sixth state to allow “constitutional carry.” It will allow Kansans 21 and older to carry concealed firearms regardless of whether they have obtained a permit. Training still will be required for anyone who...

Bottom line, if your name appeared on that mysterious list (intentionally or unintentionally due to errors, which routinely occur), then you would be unable to buy a gun.

The open carry push is separate from but simultaneous with a campus carry push moving through the Florida legislature as well. Ironically, this is exactly how open carry and campus carry both succeeded in Texas; they moved through in separate bills but during the same legislative session. Texas became the 45th state to pass laws allowing the open carry of handguns in May, and Abbot signed open carry into...

    Gun control is a powder keg of an issue anyway, but selecting an individual as spokesman that reasonable people agree should never be allowed to own a gun, only makes the effort more prone to misfire. And that’s exactly what happened in Virginia. Democrats are convinced the next election is always going to be the one where “gun control” pays off. Except it doesn’t: Election after election after election this favorite issue is a dud at the ballot box. Bitter clingers always manage to out-vote eager grabbers. The problem is particularly acute in off–year, nonpresidential elections. Making gun control’s appearance...

    Although C.L.H had a clean record and was not a defendant in the domestic violence proceeding, which was later voluntarily dismissed in any event, what authorities found out about his collection led to trouble. On examination by the State Police, five of the guns were considered under New Jersey law to be banned “assault weapons” which led to the forfeiture of those firearms and, since that disqualified him from further gun ownership under state law as argued the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, the other 71 guns as well. A local court agreed and ordered the entire collection remain impounded pending...

But it wasn’t burglars who had taken the firearms, it was the Los Angeles Police Department.

The group that heard the word "control" was less likely to support tighter gun laws.

    In President Obama’s hometown of Chicago on Halloween night Saturday, a robbery was thwarted when a concealed carry permit holder with a valid firearm owner’s ID card under Illinois law shot the thug dead. It showed that even in Obama’s Chicago, more guns mean less crime and, in this case, one less career criminal. It also shows that opponents’ fears that concealed carry laws will mean carnage in the streets as garden-variety disputes escalate into a proverbial gunfight at the OK Corral are false. Since the U.S. 7th Court of appeals struck down Illinois’ ban on concealed carry as unconstitutional...

    The National Rifle Association was victorious in Virginia last night after billionaire Michael Bloomberg and other outside gun control advocates attempted to influence local Senate elections. As Matt has already noted, this means long time Clinton ally and Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe will be forced to work with a Republican majority until the end of his term. Last month, McAuliffe issued a series of gun control executive orders after failing to get legislation passed by Republicans.

    Illegal homemade and small shop submachine guns are common in Brazil. High Murder rates in Brazil have legislators considering reforms of Brazil’s strict gun laws. According to wikipedia: All firearms in Brazil are required to be registered within the state. The minimum age for ownership is 25,[5] and it is generally illegal to carry a gun outside a residence.[6] Brazil only has 6-8 million legal guns, and they are heavily restricted. Brazil’s population is over 200 million. The Homicide rate is 25.2 per 100,000, six times as high as that in the United States. Another study puts it at...

A 21-year-old witness named Matt Abshire said the gunman “shot a person on Prospect Street and two more near El Paso Street.” Police had been called and arrived to confront the gunman just after he had...

    On October 28, Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) , Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) , and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) introduced legislation to close a non-existent “background check loophole.” The myth of the loophole is a perversion of the fact that Charleston gunman Dylann Roof passed a background because of an FBI “error”—an “error” which gun control groups have done their best to paint as a loophole ever since.
