Guns in America: President Obama Exploits the “Newtown Shooting” to Enact Gun Control

Shortly after the horrendous shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, much discussion ensued about the root cause(s) of the tragedy. While guns and the availability of high-capacity magazines were included in the banter, so too was the apparent lack of access to appropriate mental health care and the influence of pervasive violence in movies and video games …

Guns in America: “All I know is, more guns isn’t the answer.”

When NRA Executive Vice President, Wayne La Pierre, recommended that retired or active police officers be assigned to guard schools, his words fell upon deaf ears. Members of the media labeled La Pierre a “kook,” saying he was out-of-touch with mainstream America. His ideas were summarily dismissed without serious consideration. Similar ideas were also presented …

Guns in America: What’s the Problem?

I am not a hunter but I have hunted. When I was 14 my brother-in law offered to take me pheasant hunting. Before going I had to take a “NRA Hunter’s Safety Course” and learn the basics of handling firearms. Sometime later I hunted for the first time and had my first experience of firing …

Guns in America: The Second Amendment

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  Debates about the efficacy or applicability of the Second Amendment arise whenever some madman uses a gun for evil. Some claim that the right to bear arms applies …

Guns in America: “The Founding Fathers only had muskets, not semi-automatic rifles. We don’t need weapons of war on our streets.”

I have heard it said that because the framers only used flintlock or percussion, single shot muskets, that the Second Amendment does not apply to semi-automatic or automatic weapons. But it is precisely because our founding fathers only describe arms in general terms that we know their intention was to forever ensure that Americans would …

Guns in America: Government shall maintain order and determine who shall be free?

I find it troubling, and so should every American, that the same elected representatives who seem ever tempted to ignore that portion of the Second Amendment that states     “… the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed,” feel justified in levying taxes from those same people, in order to …

Guns in America: “You have nothing to fear. We will never confiscate your guns.”

Many Americans believe this—mostly those who do not own guns. In recent speeches, President Obama claims that he supports the right of individuals to own guns for sport or personal protection (of course you may not protect your family with automatic, high-capacity weapons while his family is surrounded by them).Even before he became President, he …

Guns in America: Military Style Assault Weapons & Firearm Facts

President Obama, California Senator Diane Feinstein and others have called for a renewal of the ban on “Assault Weapons” that was law for ten years; from 1994 until 2004. To support their efforts, the gun-ignorant media is fond of showing images of ominous-looking, black rifles described as “military style assault weapons.” We are told that …

Guns in America: Fantasy and Hypocrisy or Reality and Responsibility

Do we really want our children surrounded by armed guards? Do we want our schools to be like prisons? Isn’t it time to draw the line and ban “military style assault weapons,” if only to save just one life? All of these questions sound sincere and noble. The problem is, they assume a world not …

Guns in America: “If more guns are the answer, then why aren’t mass murders ever stopped by citizens carrying guns?”

Proponents of more gun control are quick to point out that there have been 62 mass shootings (defined as when four or more people are shot) in America since 1982, including 25 since 2006 and seven taking place in 2012. “If more guns could prevent these crimes,” they say, “then why weren’t these killers stopped …
