The Invisible Victims of Gun Control

She’d always “felt safe in her neighborhood,” said an unnamed young woman in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. That is, until around midnight of October 25, 2008, when she heard a crash in her basement. A 47-year-old registered sex offender named Ronnie W. Preyer had broken into her home. She “made a beeline to the back door, but Preyer was waiting for her,” writes Bridget DiCosmo of the Southeast Missourian. She fought back, but was punched, “twice, she thinks.” Before leaving, her rapist told her, “Don’t tell anybody, I know where you live.” “I wasn’t going to tell, but the more I thought about

The Enemedia intentionally do not report on cases where guns in the hands of ordinary citizens save lives. This was revealed in John Lott´s book The Bias Against Guns.

http://www.gunlaws.com/JohnLottMediaBias.htm

A modern CDC study has concluded that guns are used in cases of individual self-defense anywhere between 500,000 and 3,000,000 times annually. How many unidentified lives are saved in those instances? Likely many, many more than are taken by murderers with guns. But the media will not report it.

I suspect that many times a victim uses a gun to deter an attack the press isn´t even notified. No blood - no interest.

#1, in becoming a CCW instructor, learned that over 90% of "successful uses of a handgun for self defense" NO shots are fired.

I have been told of several cases by friends. Here´s one. Elderly grandfather, walking the dog in a neighborhood starting to "go bad". Carload of thugs stop and ask for money. When told to go, they commented about "how about we just take it?". A .38 Special revolver pulled from a pocket, not even pointed at them convinced them that they had made a serious error in their victim selection process. They decided to go.

Happens millions of times per year, literally. Nobody knows except the participants and they don´t publicize it much.

FTA:
“Curiously, handguns are less vilified in the gun control debate than the AR-15, despite the fact that the vast majority of gun murders are committed with handguns.”


Let me help with that curiosity. The attack was on handguns for many years. Handgun Control Inc. now the Brady Campaign started in 1974. Handguns became the third rail of politics and more so with the expansion of concealed carry. Then the shift in focus became the dreaded assault rifle, yea that’s the ticket, with the AR-15 and it’s magic bullets at the top of the list. I believe the hype actually affected the choices made by the deranged and has resulted in a self-fulfilling prophesy.

As soon as they are done with saving us from battlefield weapons that have never seen nor ever will see a battlefield, they will use the argument that they only addressed part of 4% of the problem and move on to the 96%, after all that’s only common sense.

Long forgotten will be the genesis of the concealed carry movement. It started with Florida which was faced with an ever growing fear that tourism would dry up because of dead tourists and they had no solutions. As a last resort they gave the constitution a whirl and it worked.

Tesm #3, The modern "shall issue" (objective standards) CCW movement started in Fla in 1988. Very successful there, and swept slowly across the country. Now 41 states have ´shall issue´ or no requirement for a permit.

Fight back against the demonization of modern sporting rifles like the AR-15.

I don´t equate abortion and gun ownership, but people on either side of both issues share a common characteristic. They are rock solid in their belief that their side is right and no amount of logic, no recitation of facts, no constitutional referrals and no Supreme Court decisions will change their position on the subject. With very, very few exceptions their minds are firmly set on their side of the question and they will hold that position until they draw their last breath. No, I´m not suggesting that anti-gunners and pro-abortionists be killed. I´m saying that both issues will out live all of us and probably all of our current and future descendants.

The number-one challenge of our times is to separate the wheat from the chaff. To assist in this task, we are blessed with more information than ever before – but we are also simultaneously burdened with more misinformation than any prior generation has ever had to deal with. We look back and wonder how trusting citizens were so easily victimized by snake oil salesmen, but today, in the golden age of cons, we are being duped on a daily basis. As a representative matter (and a national issue of great significance), let´s look at what´s happening with industrial wind energy.

This week has shown how serious and determined the Trump-Pence team is about launching America into a new era of leadership in space – and ensuring our dominance there for generations to come. Consider President Trump’s announcement at the National Space Policy Council meeting on Monday that the Department of Defense will create a U.S. Space Force as the sixth branch of our military. Couple this with the announcement of Space Policy Directive-3, which will create the world’s first official system for extraterrestrial traffic management, along with the continued effort by the Department of Commerce to streamline

A Leftist Core Belief: Denying Evil

A fundamental problem with leftists is their refusal to believe that some people embrace evil. The leftist idea that anyone who isn´t directly opposing the left can´t be evil, only misguided, underlies many key leftist policies. Take gun control. It´s premised on the idea that people don´t kill people; guns do. But we know that removing guns does not stop evil men from murder; contrary to the leftist´s deeply held belief, Cain didn´t murder Abel with an assault rifle. After all, if some men weren´t evil, why would Great Britain now be starting to control knives? Because leftists reject the

To put this story into context, let´s go back to 1899 and the publication of Johann von Bloch´s book Die Zukunft des Krieges (The Future of War). Bloch was a 19th-century railway magnate who had built the Warsaw to Moscow railway. In those days, the best and the brightest worked on optimizing the productivity of railroads through operational analysis. Bloch applied insights from managing railroads to theorizing about the conduct of war. His big insight, original at the time, was that wars would be won by the country with the biggest industrial output. This is the same as the Soviet

Writer Ryan Moore was a confirmed lifelong anti-gun liberal. He even tweeted out a request to President Obama to repeal the Second Amendment in 2012. But one day, Moore was confronted with a situation that changed his entire perspective on guns to the point where he is now a life member of the NRA. Moore was literally mugged by reality. Des Moines Register: Then in 2013 I tweeted: "I was mugged, two guys with guns, right after getting off 19 at Polk and Francisco last night about 10.30. @mayoredlee @sfmta_muni" In early 2016, I decided to leave San Francisco and to build a house in

After being offered an opportunity to sing the national anthem before a Nevada minor league baseball game, a woman has decided to turn it down after learning that she can’t bring her gun to the stadium. Alishia Wolcott was picked by the Reno Aces to sing after she submitted an audition tape in March, she told Fox News.

After the FBI conducted its search of Michael Cohen, Trump´s personal lawyer, the entire press, both Republicans and Democrats, demanded decisive actions by President Trump. Fire Mueller! Fire Rosenstein! Where is Attorney General Sessions?! Everyone called for Trump´s response. But the FBI´s search of Cohen was the response of the Washington swamp to a short television interview with Sessions about two weeks ago, followed by an official letter to the key Republican members of Congress, in which he casually noted that he had appointed a prosecutor to investigate what is known as "Clintonistas." It turns out that the prosecutor, Huber

Massachusetts´ ban on assault

A judge in Massachusetts on Friday ruled against a lawsuit that questioned the state’s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, declaring that the weapons were not protected by the Second Amendment. Assault weapons are considered to be military firearms, U.S. District Judge William Young said in his ruling, therefore disqualifying them from being included in a citizen’s right to “bear arms.” Policy makers, rather than the courts, were better suited to decide on the regulation for the weapons, he said. "Other states are equally free to leave them unregulated and available to their law-abiding citizens," Young said in his

In the aftermath of the October 1, 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas, the Justice Department has proposed a new rule reclassifying "bump stocks" as machine guns. President Trump has condemned bump stocks, and even the National Rifle Association has called for "additional regulations" on "devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles." The new rule would require that all existing bump stocks either be turned in or destroyed without compensation. I don´t own any bump stocks. I have no desire to own a bump stock. I think they´re asinine. It´s the sort of device an eighteen-year-old

Actor Peter Fonda apologized Wednesday afternoon for a threatening tweet in which he said Americans upset with the White House´s separation of illegal-immigrant families ´should rip Barron Trump from his mother´s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.´ The first lady´s office conferred with U.S. Secret Service about the incident. The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly.

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials.
