Gun News

Mask coming off coordinated administration deception on guns

“We need to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way,” then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder advocated in a 1995 C-SPAN video that surfaced over the weekend on Breitbart.com and has since gone viral in the gun activist community.


D.C. officials will do just about anything to keep law abiding citizens from lawfully possessing a gun in the city. The Washington Times' Emily Miller has found in the "Emily Gets Her Gun" series that the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) has been spreading false information about firearms ownership. As a result, residents and nonresidents who have done nothing wrong risk false arrest and gun confiscation. As of Friday, the MPD's Firearms Registration Office had not removed the incorrect information from its website.

Before the end of this year, Russell and Sallie Nordyke will set up shop for at least five gun shows at the Santa Clara County fairgrounds, providing a gathering spot for thousands of gun enthusiasts to buy and sell rifles, pistols and other weapons.
For the Glenn County couple, the South Bay is a small island amid a sea of hostility toward their TS Gun Shows. Bay Area counties from Alameda and Marin to San Mateo have enacted laws that forbid the sale or possession of guns on government property, effectively banning gun shows at some of the best spots to hold them.
The Nordykes believe those laws are unconstitutional    and on Monday, a federal appeals court will once again take up their 12 year quest to strike down the regulations.

Ideally, responsible, law abiding gun owners and shooters should be good.
Numbers of hunting related shooting incidents have plummeted through the 60 years of hunter safety education in New York State. Statewide conceal carry permits issued in other states have shown the accountability of pistol owners and a reduction in crimes committed.
Nonetheless, anti gun groups and powerful individuals continue to appeal to legislators to enact increasingly restrictive gun ownership laws.

Among peer reviewed national studies by criminologists and economists, 18 find that right to carry laws reduce violent crime, 10 claim no effect, and just one claims one type of crime temporarily increases slightly. The possibility that permit holders might lead to more crime is easily evaluated by looking at how incredibly law abiding they are, with them losing their permits for any firearms related violations (usually trivial ones) at hundredths or thousandths of 1 percentage point.
