Do Gun Bans Reduce Violent Crime? Ask the Aussies and Brits

Do Gun Bans Reduce Violent Crime? Ask the Aussies and Brits BY GLEN TSCHIRGI 3 years, 5 months ago (H/T Instapundit) Nothing original to add here, but this posting I picked up from Instapundit is well worth passing along, particularly in light of the typical, knee-jerk, Statist reactions to the horrific Aurora CO shootings: Actually, if the Australian Bureau of Criminology can be believed, Americans would be insane to concern themselves with what non-Americans think about American gun rights. In 2002 five years after enacting its gun ban the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In ...
Politico: Executive Gun Control Will Force Background Checks on Private Sellers
Post Date: 2016-01-01 19:06:35 by Stoner
Politico reports that President Obamas upcoming executive gun control will force a number of private gun sellers to get their Federal Firearms License (FFL) and perform background checks on every gun sold. This is will not do away with the nonexistent gun show loophole, but it will further limit Americans freedom to sell guns to their neighbors or family members without a background checkwhich is ultimately what Democrats want to accomplish anyway. According to Politico, Obama will tighten the definition of what it means to be engaged in the business of firearms sales. Currently, those who sell firearms with the principal ...
Police May Confiscate Guns without Notice to Owner Starting January 1 [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-12-29 20:33:17 by Stoner
Beginning January 1, police in California may confiscate firearms from gun owners thought to be a danger to themselves or others without giving the owner any notice. This is the result of the implementation of gun violence restraining orders (GVROs), which go into effect New Years Day. According to KPCC, GVROs could be issued without prior knowledge of the person. In other words, a judge could issue the order without ever hearing from the person in question, if there are reasonable grounds to believe the person is a threat based on accounts from the family and police. And since the order can be issued without the gun owner even being present to defend him or ...

Post Date: 2015-12-25 10:44:30 by Deckard
Douglas County, GA Bobby Daniels was a peace officer by trade a private security guard employed at CNNs headquarters in Atlanta. When he learned that his emotionally troubled 25-year-old son Bias had suffered a breakdown and was holding a fellow security guard at gunpoint in a mobile home part in Douglasville, Bobby raced to the scene. Using the skills of persuasion and patient de-escalation upon which a private peace officer must rely, Bobby persuaded his son to relinquish his handgun and place it on the hood of a car.Just seconds later, Daniels was fatally shot not by his mentally ill son, but by the sheriffs deputies who had arrived on the scene.In ...
The question I asked before any play date
Post Date: 2015-12-24 15:30:07 by misterwhite
It was the most awkward and divisive of questions that I would ask of other parents, usually new acquaintances, but also of old friends. Wed be on the phone, discussing our young children, laughing, and the subject of play dates would come up. The other mom might say, Can Chloe come over here tomorrow to play with Maddie? I would ask, Do you keep guns in your house? Always it would lead to the most illuminating of answers, whether yes or no. If the response was negative, the parent would answer immediately, following up with something like, No, never. We dont believe in having firearms. In the other cases, there would always be a pause ...
Guns and Vultures
Post Date: 2015-12-21 20:53:36 by Stoner
So last night my feed was filled with posts about ban all guns, damn the NRA, hateful Christians, Republican murderers, evil Tea Party, white men are the real killers. Were used to that. Any time theres another mass murder, almost always somewhere with strict gun control, usually in a Gun Free Zone, the buzzards swoop in. The events were still in play and the president and the leading democrat candidates had already called for more gun control. People who dont know much about the topic demand that something be done, even though all the usual proposals would actually make the problem worse, rather than better. But it doesnt matter. They want what they want, and ...
Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Executive Order or Not, ‘I’m Not Surrendering the Guns’
Post Date: 2015-12-19 19:56:54 by cranky
On December 18, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio referenced President Obamas pending executive action on gun control and said executive order or not, guns will not be surrendered. Arpaio talked with Breitbart News about a number of gun-related issues and indicated that an ongoing problem is that guns and gun control have become part of the political situation. As a result, Democrats react to the criminal misuse of guns by grandstanding to punish law-abiding citizens with gun control. The same thing happens after a terror attack, such as the one that took place in San Bernardino on December 2. Since then, Democrats have pushed to add the no-fly list to background checks, ...
Safe and Secure

I took down my Rebel flag (which you can't buy on e-bay any more) and peeled the NRA sticker off the front door. I disconnected my home alarm system and quit the candy-ass Neighborhood Watch. I bought two Pakistani flags and put one at each corner of the front yard. Then I purchased the black flag of ISIS (which you can buy on e-bay) and put it in the center of the yard. Now the local police, sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security, Secret Service and other agencies are all watching the house 24/7. I've never felt safer and I'm saving $69.95 a month.
Judge Dismisses Denver D.A.'s Unconstitutional Jury Tampering Charges
Post Date: 2015-12-17 12:35:16 by tpaine
Judge Dismisses Denver D.A.'s Unconstitutional Jury Tampering Charges Mitch Morrissey tried to imprison activists for passing out jury nullification pamphlets. Jacob Sullum Last August, Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey charged two local activists, Mark Iannicelli and Eric Brandt, with seven felonies each for passing out jury nullification pamphlets at the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse. Morrissey continued to pursue those charges even after conceding that such activity is protected by the First Amendment. When I asked Lynn Kimbrough, Morrissey's public information officer, what Iannicelli and Brandt had done that crossed the line from constitutionally protected speech to ...
The Rifles Of The Next Civil War
Post Date: 2015-12-16 01:04:03 by Tooconservative
Two days ago I wrote a post gaming out the gun control fantasies being called for by the left-leaning mainstream media. I basically allowed for a scenario where President Obama made executive orders based upon two recent calls by New York-based media outlets, one following through on the Daily News desire to brand all National Rifle Association members as terrorists, and the other on the Times call to make common firearms illegal. In my scenario, I imagined a very brief, lenient, and indeed hopeful turn of events where Congress, most state governors, law enforcement officers, the military, and even Vice President Biden all honored their oaths to defend the Constitution, not any particular ...
White House Shocked By Gun Sales Surge
Post Date: 2015-12-14 02:59:43 by Tooconservative
This past Black Friday saw a record number of NICS checks the most gun sales in a single day. Ever. Over the last week the supply of modern firearms has been drained from the wholesale distribution channels United States. People are buying guns like its going out of style. If you ask the White House, the fact that record numbers of Americans are exercising their Constitutional right to own a gun is a tragedy and they have absolutely no idea why its happening. Its a classic Democrat response they dont understand anything about the firearms they demonize and they cant comprehend the gun owner mentality. It gets worse . . . From ...
WaPo fact check: Rubio’s right that gun-ban laws would have no impact on recent mass shootings
Post Date: 2015-12-13 07:24:42 by Tooconservative
This started more than a week ago, when Marco Rubio appeared on CBS This Morning to rebut the Democrats demand for more gun laws in the wake of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino. Rubio explained to a skeptical panel that none of the proposals from Barack Obama or other Democrats would have prevented the San Bernardino shooting, or any of the other recent mass shootings (via Cortney OBrien): None of these crimes that have been committed or in this case what I believe is a terror attack in California would have been prevented by the expanded background checks, Rubio said. He added, This terrorist that was able to access these weapons is not ...
Backfire: CBS/NYT poll shows majority opposes “assault weapons” ban — for first time ever
Post Date: 2015-12-11 15:46:52 by Tooconservative
Attempts by Democrats to demagogue the recent terror attack in San Bernardino to push a new ban on assault weapons has failed to convince Americans. In fact, it might have backfired altogether. For the first time in 20 years of polling the question, the CBS/New York Times poll finds a majority opposed to an assault weapons ban 44/50, even as gun control in other contexts polls more consistently with previous findings (via Twitchy and Patrick Egan): The NYT report saves this nugget for the second-to-last paragraph in its lengthy analysis of the survey: What has shifted notably are attitudes on gun control. Only 44 percent of Americans favor a ban on assault weapons, ...
2nd Amendment in Action: Armed Driver Stops Attempted Mass Shooting
Post Date: 2015-12-09 11:54:20 by Don
by AWR Hawkins9 Dec 201584 In light of the Democrat-sponsored gun control following the San Bernardino attack, it is crucial to remember the important role armed citizens play in keeping themselves and others safe. Perhaps no example illustrates this better than that of the Uber driver who pulled his handgun and stopped an attempted mass shooting in Chicago on April 17. The driver had a concealed carry permit, so he was carrying his gun legally. And the fact that he had the gun with him prevented injury to innocents at the very least, and perhaps saved numerous lives on top of that. Breitbart News reported that the driver was sitting in his car on Milwaukee Avenue, watching people ...

Gangsters With Badges

Heres a CNN news story about a Prince Georges County (MD) Hero who pointed a loaded gun, gangster-style, at the head of a man stopped over a traffic violation: The man was threatened with summary execution for the high crime of exiting his vehicle and what amounts to contempt of cop. The Hero initially lost his taxpayer-subsidized employment, but until the video got loose, was not charged criminally with anything. It is only because a third party managed to video the incident and because of subsequent embarrassment that the Hero ended up facing charges. Which is exactly why these incidents continue to occur. We that is, the non-badged are ...

Post Date: 2015-12-07 07:48:24 by Willie Green
Mark Vicars, with shot of his weapons (NCPD) A Long Island man who was allegedly posing as a federal air marshal was arrested after cops say they found a loaded pistol and assault rifle in his car, along with other weapons. Mark Vicars, 49, was pulled over while driving on Jericho Turnpike in Syosset around 7:40 a.m. Thursday.

Authorities found a .223 assault rifle, a loaded pistol, a knife, a tactical vest with three high-capacity magazines and body armor in the car. There ...
Think 'Gun Violence' Is On the Rise in the U.S.? Think Again
Post Date: 2015-12-06 21:07:33 by Justified
As President Obama prepares to lecture the American public about guns yet again, the statistics say that "gun violence" is on the decline and has been for some time -- even as private firearm ownership has soared: Premeditated mass shootings in public places are happening more often, some researchers say, plunging towns and cities into grief and riveting the attention of a horrified nation. In general, though, fewer Americans are dying as a result of gun violence a shift that began about two decades ago. In 1993, there were seven homicides by firearm for every 100,000 Americans, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and ...

Its another tragic reminder that here in America its way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun. Right now, people on ...
A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths
Post Date: 2015-12-06 09:00:00 by Willie Green
In part by forbidding almost all forms of firearm ownership, the country has as few as two gun-related homicides a year. Ive heard it said that, if you take a walk around Waikiki, its only a matter of time until someone hands you a flyer of scantily clad women clutching handguns, overlaid with English and maybe Japanese text advertising one of the many local shooting ranges. The citys largest, the Royal Hawaiian Shooting Club, advertises instructors fluent in Japanese, which is also the default language of its website. For years, this peculiar Hawaiian industry has explicitly targeted Japanese tourists, drawing them away from beaches and resorts into shopping malls, to do ...

Is it Time to Retire the Defensive Shotgun?

Is it Time to Retire the Defensive Shotgun? By CTD Blogger published on November 24, 2015 in Firearms With the AR-15 crowned as the new reigning champ of semiautomatic rifles, theres no doubt that the 5.56×45 is here to stay. These guns have never been cheaper, more reliable, or easier to customize. And the surging popularity of the defensive carbine has largely displaced the 12-gauge shotgun as the long gun of choice to keep handy for defense of hearth and home. The pump-action shotgun was at one time considered the first and only tool to reach for when things went bump in the night, but it definitely doesnt have the monopoly on protective force anymore. So, is the ...
