The Invisible Victims of Gun Control
American Thinker, by William Sullivan

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

Comments:
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.

CHICAGO – The Chicago Fraternal Order of Police is fighting to get a pending consent decree it considers heavily anti-police tossed out before the document is enacted and potentially brings a dramatic overhaul to the city’s police policy. “The consent decree will make the simplest police duties and actions rife with ambiguity, and set up officers for discipline no matter how professional or appropriate their conduct,” Chicago FOP Vice President Martin Preib wrote in a statement to Fox News. Fox News obtained what is believed to be a draft of the consent decree, which has been years in the making

Wrecking NATO

The Washington Post headline blared, "Trump is bent on wrecking NATO. Prepare for catastrophe." The Post fears that President Trump´s diplomacy will benefit Vladimir Putin to the detriment of American and European interests. European Council president Donald Tusk sniped, "Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don´t have that many." The NATO countries are, indeed, among America´s closest allies, but some of them appear more interested in oil, natural gas, and trade with Iran than in the Fulda Gap. Some of our "closest allies" have been working overtime to undermine America. If Mr. Trump is irritated with them, there

An activist author ignited a social media firestorm on Thursday after saying she was left “very confused” seeing a black man with a pro-NRA and Tea Party bumper-sticker on his car. Kimberley Johnson, a feminist contributor to HuffPost and the spokeswoman for the national advocacy group We Are Woman, was slammed for questioning why a black person would not embrace progressive politics. “Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers. One was pro-NRA and the other one was a Tea Party sticker that read, ‘Don´t tread on me,’” she

COSTILLA COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - UPDATE (7/5): The Spring Fire topped 100,000 acres overnight and is now less than 6,000 acres from overtaking the 2013 West Fork Complex Fire as the second-largest fire in state history. Crews made major progress on the blaze, as of Thursday evening at 6:30 the fire was reportedly 35 percent contained. There were no new evacuation or pre-evacuation orders issued Wednesday night; all existing statuses remain the same. Evacuation maps can be found here. The Hayman Fire, the state´s largest-ever fire, burned 137,760 acres in the summer of 2002. Crews are hopeful that fire activity will be less than

A Connecticut man who was assaulted by three juveniles while at work has been sentenced to prison for stabbing one of the attackers. The Connecticut Post reports 21-year-old Jeffrey Sumpter of Bridgeport received 18 months in jail Monday at a Stamford courthouse. The paper reported that Sumpter — who was convicted of felony first-degree assault — also will have to spend three years following his release on probation. If he breaks the law during that time, Sumpter could be made to serve all or part of a 42-month prison sentence. Sumpter was working at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Norwalk last

Wind and Solar Require Massive Subsidies
American Thinker, by Norman Rogers    Original Article

It is difficult to fully itemize the subsidies provided for wind and solar energy. Many subsidies are hidden in the tax code or are an indirect consequence of the privileged treatment given these sources of electricity. A fundamental difference between wind and solar and traditional energy sources is that wind and solar are intermittent and erratic. The weather affects both wind and cloud cover. The sun sets every night, turning off solar generation, often just when demand peaks. In winter, solar generation drops -- dramatically in areas with heavy winter cloud cover. Wind and solar are dumb electricity. It would

July Fourth is a moment for all of us to reflect on America and what it means – and that’s particularly true this year, as the holiday comes right after a week in politics that revealed the great challenges America’s system of government is facing. The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy – and the left’s reaction to it – should give us all pause this Independence Day. I studied America’s system of government years ago when I was an undergraduate at Oxford University. I mention that not to try and impress you with my intellectual prowess, but for

James E. Hansen wiped sweat from his brow. Outside it was a record-high 98 degrees on June 23, 1988, as the NASA scientist testified before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources during a prolonged heat wave, which he decided to cast as a climate event of cosmic significance. He expressed to the senators his “high degree of confidence” in “a cause-and-effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming.” With that testimony and an accompanying paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Mr. Hansen lit the bonfire of the greenhouse vanities, igniting a world-wide debate that continues today

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

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times.

The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup.

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen.
