Re: A suggestion about “gun violence”

Dear Mr. President:

May I respectfully suggest one action that you can take immediately to cut down on crime and gun violence?

Ask the Attorney General to survey all the Deputy Attorney Generals each month and report how many “Felon In Possession” convictions each one has “concluded”. Every month, “invite” the lowest performer to personally come and explain to you why they are on the bottom of the list. If you don’t like what you hear or the same individual shows up again, then thank them for their service and accept their resignation. Very simple. Very efficient. And, I believe very effective. As a business executive, you know that no one will want to face the boss under those types of conditions.

Now I am just a retired IT executive, who’s an NRA and GOA member, and I believe that all responsible gun owners would cheer that someone is doing something about the “problem” that focus on the criminals. And, since those criminals are “street smart”, I believe they will suddenly pay attention to not to be “in possession”.

Yes, I voted for you in the last election on the hope you’d get the US out of Afghanistan. Next election, it looks to me that Tulsi Gabbard might be my choice to make peace. Maybe she should be your running mate?

Respectfully
Ferdinand J. Reinke

GUNS: “Red Flag” — no due process AND no penalty for malicious use

Sunday, March 31, 2019

Look, the problem with red flag laws is simple to understand. One is that there’s no real due process involved. Someone says, “Bill is a threat to himself or others” and a judge simply says, “Alrighty, then,” signs a piece of paper, and now Bill loses his guns. He had no opportunity to respond. Bill didn’t get to tell the judge that Sally just said that because she thinks all gun owners are dangerous. He doesn’t get to reply that she misunderstood something he said. He doesn’t get to explain that she’s just angry at him because of political disagreements between the two.

Bill doesn’t get to say anything until after the fact.

Imagine someone proposing something similar that would prevent someone from accessing the internet or voting without due process? The howls would be everywhere and for good reason.

But as has been noted before, the Second Amendment is a second-class right in far too many people’s minds. They believe it shouldn’t be afforded the same level of protection that other rights enjoy.

Another issue is that there’s absolutely no real punishment for those who use red flag laws maliciously. At best, it’s a slap on the wrist, but let’s understand that what we’re talking about here is a measure that will provide legalized swatting. The police will show up to take people’s guns. Those who use these laws to punish others are depriving folks of their civil liberties. That calls for stiff penalties.

Unfortunately, no one seems willing to put that in a bill.

GUNS: Spartacus should stick to something he knows

Cory Booker Displays Profound Ignorance On Gun Laws In Town Hall
Posted at 8:30 am on March 29, 2019 by Tom Knighton

*** begin quote ***

Convicted criminals aren’t buying them even from face-to-face transfers from law-abiding citizens, either. Why? Because they don’t want a citizen to ID them. After all, what if the police find out that the gun was sold to Joe Smith, but Joe says he sold it to someone else? Joe is a law-abiding citizen, so the idea of the gun he sold being used in a crime is upsetting. Why yes, Officer, I can give you a description of the guy. In fact, I still have his cell phone number.

That’s bad news in Criminal Land.

*** end quote ***

Three strikes and you’re out.

No one even pretended that “gun control” is anything but disarming the sheep so the wolves can run wild.

In https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130127/discuss/701279952/, the editors didn’t dispute the statement: “Background checks, no problem. Gun registration is a big problem. Every genocide in modern history has started with a gun registration, followed by confiscation, followed by genocide.” All they did was gripe that it was “plagiarized”.  Argh!  Guess every idea they print is unique?

Remember: “Registration, confiscation, genocide”.  

With the new “red flag” laws popping up all over, we now into step #2.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

GUNS: The failure of gun control

In California, gun control fails once again

Wednesday’s California bar shooting was in a gun-free zone, where good guys cannot legally carry firearms: Opposing view

Once again, we see the failure of gun control in preventing a horrible tragedy.

Wednesday’s California bar shooting was in a gun-free zone, where good guys cannot legally carry firearms.

Gun-free zones are magnets for killers. Consider that almost 98 percent of public mass shootings in this country occur in these mandatory victim zones.

But where citizens can protect themselves, the situation is much different. Within the past month, two potential mass shootings were averted by law-abiding citizens who used their concealed firearms.

But the anti-gun left fails to mention how these two citizens saved lives in those incidents. Why is that?

We will never rid ourselves of one basic problem: Bad guys with evil intent will always acquire some kind of “weapon” to commit violence.

*** end quote ***

Sadly, once again, the Gooferment thinks it can defy “natural law”.  Criminals don’t obey laws and “gun restriction laws” are no different.  

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

Stop the insanity!

GUNS: Cleveland To Help Crooks Dump Guns Used In Crimes

Monday, October 15, 2018

What buybacks do, with their no-questions-asked policy, is allow criminals to dump incriminating evidence in a way that won’t link back to them. It makes it more difficult for police to gather evidence to put these criminals behind bars.

GUNS: Why did no one shoot back?

Assailant with shotgun invades newsroom, kills five. Why did no one shoot back? 
by Vin Suprynowicz 

*** begin quote ***

Why did no one in the building shoot back? Were they all disarmed? Why? Is the Annapolis newspaper one of many with signs on its entrance doors warning employees—not just visitors, mind you, but trusted EMPLOYEES—they can be suspended or fired if they bring onto the premises a self-defense handgun—even one for which they have a hard-to-acquire, government-issued “permit”?

I’ll betcha. I’ll betcha they do. And if that turns out to be the case, could it possibly be . . . the management of this oh-so-Far-Left and Politically Correct newspaper chain that has “blood on its hands”?

*** end quote ***

Yet another “gun free zone”.

Argh!

GUNS: Failure to prosecute allowed “gun control” to fail

Accused newsroom shooter’s stalking victim: I warned cops
By Amanda Woods
June 29, 2018 | 9:37am | Updated

*** begin quote ***

A woman who claimed that the Capital Gazette shooting suspect had stalked, harassed and sued her warned a former police official that “he will be your next mass shooter,” according to a new report.

The woman, whose name was not released, also told local station WBAL 11that Jarrod W. Ramos, 38, the shotgun-toting man who allegedly burst into the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday, killing five staffers, was “a f—ing nut job.”

Jayne Miller, an investigative reporter at WBAL, tweeted that the woman told her Ramos became “fixated” on her for no obvious reason — causing her to move three times, change her name and even sleep with a gun out of fear.

*** end quote ***

Imagine if just one person in the newsroom was armed?

But the Gooferment want “We, The Sheeple” disarmed so this keeps happening.  

The newspaper didn’t want to prosecute for fear of making the situation worse.  Guess that tactic didn’t work.

So we have a double failure of “gun control”: (1) folks have to prosecute the evil people so that “gun control” has even a chance of working; and (2) “gun control” kept the victims from being able to defend themselves.

So sad and so avoidable.

Requiescat In Pacem, America!
