  • 3 Data Points That Crush The Gun Control March

    03/22/2018 9:42:04 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 13 replies
    As we head into another energy-draining, media-drenched, wrong-headed protest by angry liberals in this weekend’s highly publicized anti-gun march in Washington, responding to the salvos of misinformation becomes a real challenge. Those who understand and appreciate the Second Amendment and the Constitution — which does not include large numbers of protesters — should be armed with a few basic facts that really do make the entire anti-gun histrionics case go ker-splat! These are important because whether it is the school kids or the activists or the media, the people driving this narrative are rarely if ever confronted with contextual facts....

    ----(snip)In the aftermath of the 1929 massacre, that question was answered with action, passage of the historic National Firearms Act. Now, as we struggle with how to keep our kids safe in 2018, we should look to the effectiveness of that law. Passed in 1934, the original National Firearms Act imposed a tax on the making and transfer of certain firearms, as well as a special (occupational) tax on persons and entities engaged in the business of importing, manufacturing, and dealing in NFA firearms.

    Stoneman Douglas survivor Emma Gonzalez said on Sunday that she has no choice but to advocate for stricter gun control laws. "I have no choice because there were CNN cameras there, and my speech was broadcast all over the country in like four seconds and I had no ideas they were going to be there, and that' I'm not upset about that..I'm never going to be the same person again," Gonzalez told "60 Minutes" on CBS.

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | March 7, 2018 | John Malcolm and Lindsey M. Burke
    In the wake of the recent horrific shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, a number of proposals involving federal grant programs have been offered in Congress to try to address the critical issue of school safety. Empowering states and localities to implement evidence-based programs that meet their needs represents a sensible approach. Among the proposals under consideration is the Students, Teachers, and Officers Preventing (STOP) School Violence Act of 2018, which has been introduced in the House by Rep. John Rutherford, R-Fla., a former sheriff, and in the Senate by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. Both House...

    The History of the 'Assault Weapon' Hoax. Part 1: The Crime that Started it All A 1989 shooting at a Cal. schoolyard began the national "assault weapon" issue. It was a consequence of law enforcement failure. David B. Kopel|Mar. 2, 2018 6:40 pm The "assault weapon" controversy first became a national issue in January 1989, when a career criminal murdered five children at school playground in Stockton, California. The failures of law enforcement before and during that crime—and the media and political failures thereafter—were similar to those related to the recent murders in Parkland, Florida. These failures are part of...

    The so-called fact checkers at the far-left Washington Post are liars. Straight-up liars. Because here is what Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama actually said in favor of gun confiscation: Barack Obama, June 2014: Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since. Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this. Barack Obama,...

    American activists hijack Bannon's Zurich visit to raise money for gun safetyA group of Americans in Switzerland is using Steve Bannon’s first public speaking engagement in Europe to raise funds for gun violence prevention. Bannon, US President Donald Trump’s former right hand man and co-founder of far-right US news site Breitbart, will speak in Zurich on March 6th. The former White House Chief Strategist has repeatedly warned Trump against backing gun control, even after the mass shooting in Las Vegas in which 59 people died and 515 were injured. Now campaign group Action Together: Zurich, is turning Bannon’s appearance in...

    At the risk of being called cold or harsh, let me begin by saying every American has a right to his/her opinion on just about any issue. Including guns. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me add this: the people playing partisan politics on the graves of the 17 innocent dead people from Douglas High School are despicable. I don’t care what age they are. Over the last couple of weeks, a variety of conservative voices have gotten in trouble for insinuating that the anti-gun protesters coming out of Douglas High School seem far too practiced...

    Kroger announced Thursday that it will not longer sell firearms or ammunition to persons under 21 years of age. The grocery chain sells guns and ammunition at its Fred Meyer stores in the western U.S. Those sales will continue but persons under the age of 21 will be prohibited from purchase. CNN Money reports that Kroger released a statement, saying, “In response to the tragic events in Parkland and elsewhere, we’ve taken a hard look at our policies and procedures for firearm sales. Recent events demonstrate the need for additional action on the part of responsible gun retailers.”

    As left-wing advocacy groups and anti-gun media personalities continue their daily assault on the National Rifle Association, frantically seeking to make them a scapegoat for the Parkland school shooting, it appears their efforts may be backfiring horrendously and have only succeeded in garnering more support for the NRA. Last week leftist organizations and various anti-gun personalities led a social media boycott campaign against the NRA by threatening various companies who offer discounts and benefits for NRA members. Any sane, rational person would realize that the NRA is not responsible in any way for the acts of criminals, yet the objective...
  • Nearly 10 years after massacre, Norway to ban semi-automatic weapons, lawmaker says

    Norway plans to ban semi-automatic firearms as of 2021, nearly a decade after right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik's mass shooting left 69 people dead, a Norwegian lawmaker said on Tuesday. The minority right-wing government had presented a proposal on the ban last year. "Today (Tuesday), it has become clear that there is a parliamentary majority in favor of the government's proposal. Semi-automatic weapons will therefore be banned in Norway," Peter Frolich, a Conservative member of parliament's standing committee on judicial affairs, told AFP. The ban, which would enter into force in 2021, comes amid renewed debate on semi-automatic weapons in...

    Hartford Courant ^ | 23 feb 2018
    It is perfectly legal, at the moment, to go online and buy most of an unassembled gun, without a serial number, without any registration requirements. Only a modicum of skill is needed to put it all together. How can it be so easy for anyone to acquire and assemble an AR-15, or AK-47, or something even more deadly? Even in Connecticut, which passed some of the nation’s toughest gun laws in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings, anyone could get a ready-to-assemble gun by mail. Thankfully, so-called ghost guns are on the radar of Connecticut legislators, who are considering...

    Israel has historically been vocal concerning gun violence, opposing open-carry legislation and one law that would allow concealed weapons on campuses. He began implementing body cameras for his deputies in 2016. This week, Israel announced that deputies guarding Broward County Schools will now carry rifle, including AR-15s... a police officer assigned to Stoneman Douglas resigned after failing to enter the Parkland school as a gunman opened fire and killed 17 students and faculty. Israel said Deputy Scot Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.” The sheriff placed two other deputies under investigation for their handling of...

    Ohio teachers are flocking to a gun training class being offered by an Ohio Sheriff’s department. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told Fox & Friends that when they decided to offer the firearm training class to teachers they expected maybe 20 educators to sign up — instead there were hundreds. “We put it online, we thought we’d get 20 school teachers maybe. Within 20 minutes we had 40. Within an hour we had 100. Within four hours we had 200. By the next morning, at 300, we cut it off,” Jones said. The class was open to teachers as well...
