Letter to the Gun Grabbing DFLers in Minnesota..

The problems with the proposed ‘Universal Background Checks’ on private transfers include:

The existing background checks don’t impede criminals: Most criminals obtain guns through theft, straw purchasers, or through the same black market that moves other illicit goods such as drugs and stolen property.

Private transfer background checks would not have prevented the recent tragedies our nation has experienced: The murderers at Virginia Tech, the Batman Movie, and Representative Gabrielle Giffords‘ event in Tucson all passed background checks. The killers at Columbine had a friend buy their guns, and the Newtown murderer stole the guns he used after killing the rightful owner.

The already unreliable national background check system has experienced delays or halted sales nationwide due to errors, system overloads, and technical problems, and adding private transfers to the current system will further overload it and cost taxpayers millions of additional dollars that could instead be spent on programs that would actually reduce crime.

Firearms purchased legitimately through private transfers are rarely used in violent crime. There are, however, numerous instances of persons in immediate need of a firearm for self-defense being unreasonably delayed days to weeks by the current “instant” background check system.

If all firearms transfers require government permission to proceed, then the government need only withhold that permission in order to halt all legal transfers. A right delayed is a right denied.

Private transfer background checks also represent a step toward federal registration of guns and gun owners, which is something that has been historically demonstrated to be of little use for stopping or tracking criminals.

Don’t just Do Something; Do Something that Works:

Keep violent criminals behind bars: While keeping guns away from criminals and lunatics is very difficult in a free society, keeping criminals and lunatics where they cannot get their hands on guns has proven to be extremely effective. Violent crime has been reduced by more than 50% in the past 20 years even though the number of guns and gun owners has gone up dramatically during that time.

Put an end to imaginary Gun-Free Zones: Millions of armed, responsible citizens walk the streets of this nation every day without incident. It is ludicrous to suggest that these same people cannot be trusted around schools, churches, or government buildings. Firearms misuse among lawful carriers is extremely rare, and though they have often stopped criminals in their tracks, a person legally carrying a firearm shooting the wrong person or innocent bystanders is almost unheard of. A cardboard sign declaring a space to be “gun-free” is naive, irresponsible, and an invitation to predators.

Restricting lawful access and use of guns will never deny illicit access and use of guns. The National Coalition to Stop the Ban are representatives of groups and organizations all over the nation. With the attached letter, we put on notice any politician, firearms industry member, or organization that we are determined to protect, defend, and extend Second Amendment rights by every means at our disposal.

Anti-gun Va. lawmaker who brandished AK-47 in legislature was disbarred after brutal assault

The Guns of Obamerica

HomicidesForget Wal-Mart and skip your local gun show. The murderers of tomorrow will not be found wearing orange vests at your local sporting goods store. They won’t have NRA memberships or trophies on their walls.

You won’t find them in America. Look for them in Obamerica.

67% of firearm murders took place in the country’s 50 largest metro areas. The 62 cities in those metro areas have a firearm murder rate of 9.7, more than twice the national average. Among teenagers the firearm murder rate is 14.6 or almost three times the national average. Those numbers are from six years ago. They have grown worse since.

Those are the crowded cities of Obamerica. The places with the most restrictive gun control laws and the highest crime rates. These are the places where the family is broken, money comes from the government and immigrants crowd in from some of the most violent parts of the world bringing with them their own organized crime. These are also the places that have run by Democrats and their political machines for almost as long as they have been broken.

Obama blueprint for disarming Americans

In July 2012, the process by which this could take place was made clear in a leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” (PDF) dating from 2006. Similar plans were also outlined in an updated manual released in 2010 entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations.

Piers Morgan may demonize guns on our TV sets every night, but back in Britain, he used to make jokes about shooting people to death. Charles Johnson reports for TheDC:”CNN host and outspoken gun-control advocate Piers Morgan once joked about shooting professional enemies and separately wrote that he was a ‘rabid fascist’ who wanted burglars tortured after a ‘decent period of cattle-prodding, testicle electrode treatment, and slow gentle skewering over hot coals.’ Morgan’s comments came in an interview with England’s Daily Mail newspaper. They concerned his dismissal as editor of the Daily Mirror, a rival British tabloid, after he was fired for publishing fake photos supposedly showing British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners. Morgan, wrote Daily Mail reporter Frances Hardy, ‘ruminate[d] merrily’ about things he imagined doing to his professional enemies, including Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, writer A.A. Gill and editor Ian Hislop. ‘So the real question is, if I had a gun with just two bullets, who would I shoot?’ Morgan said during the May 2006 interview.”
