Government “Protection”

Posted by

Government gun control has been the topic of debate in recent months. But government ‘protection’ has resulted in MILLIONS of deaths every year.

From the January 10th broadcast of the Mark Levin show:

Mark talks about DDT and what happened when the EPA got involved and banned DDT despite the positive effects of it. They came in and banned it and did more harm than good. (Since 1999, over 38,000,000 people have died from malaria.)  The same thing with the CAFE standards that the federal government is imposing – making people less safe in their cars. (How many of the annual 42,000 traffic fatalities are the result of CAFE standards?) These are just a few major examples of the politicians thinking they know what they’re doing when it comes to regulating and controlling the individual and the individual’s rights, and it having a very serious and disastrous effect. The push against the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with the mass murders that have taken place, but rather it is the statists, the government and the media wanting to push their own agenda.

Violent Crime Stats: USA and Britain

Posted by

This guy points out that over the last 20 years, the violent crime rate in the US has decreased by 50%. See this chart from the FBI. Currently, the  rate is 386/100K.  The rate is double where the population is greater than 250K compared to the overall rate.

The population of England and Wales is 56M. Violent crime rate in the UK is 1361/100K. (762K /(56M/100K )). That is 350% higher than the US.

How to stop a massacre

Posted by

In the aftermath of the Aurora, Colorado Batman movie theater shooting, a surveillance video has surfaced that shows the simple, obvious answer to the question on everybody’s mind: How do we stop a massacre?

The answer is revealed in the stunning short video shown below. This remarkable solution:

• Requires no police.
• Costs the taxpayers no money.
• Requires no up-front paperwork.
• Protects innocent lives.
• Is deployed in as little as FIVE seconds.
• Works everywhere.
• Deters violent crime.
• Makes bad guys flee immediately.
• Is easy to learn.
• Functions at the local level.
• Does not require control or intervention by the United Nations or any government entity.

Passing on the legacy of the Second Amendment

Posted by


Up until a couple of years ago, I didn’t understand Charlton Heston and thought he was a kook. Then a friend told me about gun control history, another about ‘gun free zones’,  and McDonald v Chicago showed how ineffective gun bans are.

“Delivered with unedited authenticity reflecting a deep love for his nation, Mr. Heston’s eloquent message radiates truth as it lights the American way.”

Crime in Chicago

Posted by

It’s great to see how well the gun ban  is working in Chicago 😉 Taken from page 43 of the  McDonald v Chicago ruling:

Second, petitioners and many others who live in high crime areas dispute the proposition that the Second Amendment right does not protect minorities and those lacking political clout. The plight of Chicagoans living in high-crime areas was recently highlighted when two Illinois legislators representing Chicago districts called on the Governor to deploy the Illinois National Guard to patrol the City’s streets.31 The legislators noted that the number of Chicago homicide victims during the current year equaled the number of American soldiers killed during that same period in Afghanistan and Iraq and that 80% of the Chicago victims were black.32 Amici supporting incorporation of the right to keep and bear arms contend that the right is especially important for women and members of other groups that may be especially vulnerable to violent crime.33 If, as petitioners believe, their safety and the safety of other law-abiding members of the community would be enhanced by the possession of handguns in the home for self-defense, then the Second Amendment right protects the rights of minorities and other residents of high-crime areas whose needs are not being met by elected public officials.

I wonder how repealing the gun ban will affect those statistics.  Here is a little history of gun control.

McDonald v Chicago: 5-4

Posted by

As a person who has recently become familiar with our Constitution, I am puzzled that McDonald v Chicago got as far as the Supreme Court.  It follows the Heller Decision which held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for private use in federal enclaves, in this case, the District of Columbia.  The decision did not address the question of whether the Second Amendment extends beyond federal enclaves to the states.

Why is the right to bear arms even a question? Why is the obvious even being debated at the Supreme Court level? Does this mean that freedom of speech could be disputed as well? Read more »
