Gun Stupidity Must End

"Hollywood can portray senseless mass murder AND teach gun safety at the same time."


The Uninvited Ombudsman (GunLaws.com)
A version of this article appeared in the Blue Press
(Hollywood mass-murderer list at end)



Misguided gun mythology is being foisted on the public and it is doing harm. Whether this is simply ignorant, deliberate, a plot, prejudice, acting out on stereotypes, a power grab -- it doesn’t matter. What matters is it must stop. Pro-rights and anti-rights advocates just want to point fingers at each other. Children are dangerously misled. Lives are being lost needlessly. But wait -- there’s hope -- stupidity can be repaired.

People running Hollywood and TV are primary but not sole culprits. They’ll be first to cry First Amendment and insist, “We can do whatever we want!” and I’ll be first to agree. They are completely free to be idiots, and mislead and endanger the entire nation. They get to skate, scot-free, that’s our way. It’s just time to make it clear that’s what they’re doing.

“The mass media are completely free to be idiots,
and mislead and endanger the entire nation.”

The wild proliferation of guns and gun misuse portrayed on screens nationally gets acted out in public with dangerous mishandling, accidents and abysmally misinformed legislation. Violence proliferates in previously unimaginable ways, no longer confined to now commonplace theater and nighttime fiction. We even have gangsters who try to shoot sidearms sideways causing jams and adversely affecting aim (maybe that’s a good thing).

People who understand firearms -- about 100 million of us -- would find all that programming (right word) so much more credible and enjoyable if the gun parts were even slightly more realistic. The producers obviously don’t know better, if their products are any gauge. Think they’ll ever show a reloading bench? A what?

It gives us shivers to watch cops constantly point their guns at suspects, witnesses, reporters, bystanders -- each other -- fingers on the triggers, with no apparent awareness of their surroundings, backstops -- just the worst gun-handling techniques imaginable. It makes you wonder if the writers and directors ever actually handled a firearm. We know the answer, most haven’t. It’s evident. Ask a reporter, “Do you go to the range?” I do. It’s rhetorical. They don’t.

When a lieutenant holds a gun like a little girl (right word again), or cup-and-saucer style, or puts a thumb behind the slide of a pistol where the skin will be torn right off after the first shot, what a joke. No one makes that mistake twice. These folks are clueless.

OK, we get it, dramatic tension requires some liberties (poor word choice), even if it does increase stupidity. Bullets don’t spark, Stallone and every other super-rich macho manly Hollywood hypocrite hero can’t really outrun bullets, or hit everything with one shot... in real life, newcomers at a range are as rudely awakened as novices in court expecting Judge Judy.

Phony or fake, pick your word. Racking the slide in every scene -- which makes a cool sight and sound -- is as lame as a cooking show frying eggs with shells still on. It just empties your gun, making it worthless. Jump into a doorway so you’re silhouetted, framed for your enemy to see you clearly and fire? Who writes these things, Bizzaro? There's a point here. The so-called “news” is no better, but it's more dangerous.

Reporters ask why a person needs this gun or that. After all these years they really don’t know? They didn’t go to school? They question amounts of ammo when a simple box of plinkers has 500, several friends at the range can burn a thousand by lunch. The shooting sports are the number two participant sport in the nation (ahead of golf), what sort of perspective can a person with such ignorant questions bring to the subject? To hear breathless talking heads -- my colleagues -- display such bias and ignorance is humiliating. They are so lucky they can’t have their licenses revoked.

Even with TV, video and Hollywood’s passion for promoting senseless mass slaughter day in and day out (shoot cops for points!), screaming it has no effect while the bodies mount around us as never before, we could teach. We have such a wonderful (but lost) opportunity to tell these same dangerously vile shoot-’em-ups and simultaneously inculcate the public in reasonable gun-handling techniques.

From statist cops-and-robbers stories, to portrayals of truly evil villains as a movie's star -- an immoral but recurrent Hollyvomit theme these days -- these can provide a platform for, say, indexing your trigger finger on the frame, not resting it on the trigger. This does help limit accidents waiting to happen. Characters actually do the index-finger-thing sometimes, you’ve seen that. Does it hurt the show? Nah. But wait... there's more!

When actors start practicing good muzzle control, and do that amazing ballet instead of the point-at-your-friends waltz they do now, people will pick up on this. Producers who do this will win audiences and accolade, overtly and subliminally, and create far more realistic, credible products. I can barely watch Spock and Kirk run insanely around with Phasers, look closely next time, sheesh.

Anti-gun-rights groups have dropped the worn out now unpopular “control” moniker, replacing it with “safety,” but no one is fooled. They don’t really know or do anything about firearms that would directly qualify as gun safety. That’s what their (gulp!) arch enemy NRA trainers do. Teach gun safety. Michael Bloomberg’s dark-money funded “safety” groups typically can’t even tell you what the gun-safety rules are.

Teach gun safety, abandon gun stupidity. PBS public media could do it. Nah, there’s little hope it will happen there, the stupidity is ingrained and tenacious.

Based on evidence, the political left likes gun stupidity, they promote it. But we know that, and we’re watching. It makes them look so, well, stupid. That can’t possibly be what they want, can it? Or does gun stupidity promote the left’s (read: marxist/socialist) ultimate goal of gun confiscation...

They object loudly to voicing that goal of theirs out loud. So let’s ask the question. What guns does the left believe the public should be “allowed” to own? Or is that a stupid question? There are no stupid questions.

P.S. Use language with precision:
 
"Gunman" is sexist and gunophobic. It demeans and slurs both men and firearms needlessly. Use of this highly biased term compromises journalistic integrity and contributes to the distrust the public has for news media.
 
"Shooter" disguises the nature of evil and is a direct assault on decent people who exercise their fundamental civil rights. Millions of decent people at shooting ranges daily can be legitimately described by this term; lumping them in with a mass killer may be more inaccurate and prejudicial than referring to terrorists as Muslims.
 
"Mass murderer" is accurate, even before conviction when names are not specified, along with psychopath, killer, mass killer, spree killer, psychotic, villain, perpetrator and similar.
 
Recognize that sensationalizing images of mass murderers with special effects such as halos, colorizing, doubling or tripling, similar photo manipulation, zooming and panning, and ominous music or sound effects is inappropriate and decreases newsworthiness. Leaving images up during discussions is seen as perverse by audiences.
 
Running images of perpetrators long after events is yesterday’s news; featuring images of long-dead villains is perverse, causes harm, and serves little purpose other than to glorify evil and encourage copycats. The public knows this.
 
Audiences are repulsed by raising perpetrators to iconic status. It is often called “sick” behavior on the part of journalists and contributes to decreased respect and credibility for journalists among significant segments of the public. 
 
 
"News" media turns death event into Guinness record hunt
 
The media is imitating its Hollywood cousins, excited about new records for killings!
Looks, it's a new record! Who will beat the new record?! Listen to themthey are excited!
Hollywood leads the way -- sets the all time bloodthirsty killing sprees!
Don't worry folks -- this has no effect on anything. They are positive.
 
All time top Hollywood killers:

Refrain from Encouraging Copycats

“A Solemn Pledge to Refrain from Encouraging Criminal Behavior”

We support the “Don’t Inspire Evil Initiative” and encourage journalists, editors and news media generally to:

Refrain from the gratuitous or repetitious use
of mass murderers’ or jihadis’ names and images. 


Law enforcement officials and social and scientific experts recognize that repetitious use of these criminals names and images encourages copycat behavior and has harmful, deleterious effects on public safety. 


Raising the images and names of society’s most ruthless criminals to iconic status
is a perverse misuse of the public trust embodied in the First Amendment and does nothing to advance the news cycle or inform the public. It represents the worst forms of yellow journalism, sensationalism, and pandering to the lowest base instincts of society, all of which we condemn. 


The voluntary limits news media already wisely places on identifying information
for rape victims, images of the dead, minors charged with offenses, details that might encourage suicide contagion, certain delicate matters of national security such as troop movements, invasion of privacy, personal financial data and other issues that require balancing the public’s right to know with a sense of propriety prove that everything that can be published is already subject to sensible limitations. 


Gratuitous or repetitious use of jihadi and mass murderers’ names and images belongs within this set of appropriate limitations. Failure to do so is equivalent to justifying the open release of every rape victim’s name and picture under the hopelessly specious rubric that it is news and the public has a right to know. Certain things are best left unsaid, as the media has already clearly and properly accepted. We can see how voluntarily embracing this reasonable ethical guideline will benefit and enhance respect for journalism from the public it serves.

We see two paths here: either let “The Golden Age of Glorifying Villains” come to an end or openly acknowledge its perpetuation. 
We urge and encourage all news media to adopt this ethical guideline in your existing set: 
“Refrain from gratuitous or repetitious use
of jihadis’ or mass murderers’ names and images.” 


“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of ‘gun control’ as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called ‘gun control’ does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”

The “Don’t Inspire Evil” Initiative

Bloomfield Press, in cooperation with a growing list of nationally recognized institutions and individuals, joins in support of The Don’t Inspire Evil Initiative:

“Refrain from gratuitous or repetitious portrayal of mass murderers’ names and images.”

Accuracy In Media, Don Irvine, President
Lori Klein, President, Western Journalism Center
Sheriff Richard Mack, Founder, Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Assn.
Grover Norquist, President, Americans for Tax Reform
Bloomfield Press, Alan Korwin, Publisher and CEO

David Kopel, Columnist, The Washington Post
Second Amendment Foundation, Alan Gottlieb, President
Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, Rabbi Dovid Bendory


We join with Le Monde, La Croix, and CNN French TV affiliate BFMTV who will no longer publish photographs and names of terrorists “to avoid possible posthumous glorification effects.”

We stand with Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin who became world news by refusing to name the perp in an Oregon college incident given saturation “coverage” in national media.

We support the work of No Notoriety, a citizen effort to curtail glorification heaped upon the worst elements of society in perverse efforts to increase media revenue.

We join with former highly regarded FBI Director James Comey who refused to name the mass murderer in Orlando to avoid the “twisted notion” that “fame or glory” could come from carrying out the attack.

The well-established link between copycat crimes, and excessive exposure of criminal perpetrators by mass media, must finally be admitted and broken. We support adoption of the ethical guideline above to encourage responsible reporting, and discourage behavior by reporters, broadcasters and editors that tends to glorify, promote or encourage mass murderers, jihadis and related criminal activity. Every journalist who fails to take steps to limit the publicity support these heinous villains seek is tantamount to complicity in the crimes they commit against humanity.


“We must starve terrorists of the oxygen of publicity which they seek.” --Margaret Thatcher

Violence! But There Is None.

Even the Headline Lies

(Arizonans may have seen this item)

The lamestream media told you:


The gathering in Phoenix was peaceful until the end when rioting broke out and there was widespread violence. Police had to use tear gas, pepper spray, pepper balls and rubber bullets to disburse the mob.

 
 
 
 

WHAT VIOLENCE?

Winner: The End of Credibility Award.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In the most flagrant display of bizarre propaganda in recent memory, a front page mainstream newspaper proclaims violence, but shows a totally peaceful scene with one demonstrator. Because there was little else.

A line of battle ready shock troops, identities hidden, aligned in combat formation stand guard, as absolutely nothing is happening. The disjoint between headline and image must have appealed to someone up there in those isolated halls.

The Uninvited Ombudsman carefully screened footage from every major “news” outlet, and despite vigorous editing and artful presentation, the only thing remotely resembling violence was police action against the assembled public.
 
Kicking a single canister of riot gas back at its source is not deemed violence for the purpose of this report. That scene, repeated on screens ad nauseum, including the guy folding from a rubber-bullet shot to the groin, is not proof of violence or justification for any of the phony reports that followed.

Friends who were there reported an unruly angry, antagonistic mob of anti-Trumpers when they exited the rally. Police did the right thing, keeping the sides separated, across the streets, with barricades. That's what police in other cities are supposed to do, but frequently do not, yet they retain their jobs for reasons that were unclear at press time.

Although claims of tossed empty water bottles were received during the 108-degree day, police action was unquestionably violent, and demonstrators and participants from many sides had no choice but to disburse. Anti-Trump protesters did create a ruckus at one point. These people and the belligerent crowd associated with them were deemed “peace activists” by Reuters, who withdrew the false characterization after a withering storm of rebuke. According to leading experts, such misleading references are institutional.

A picture speaks 1,000 words. Although MSNBC at one point referred in passing to "tens of thousands" of demonstrators, there were hundreds, which grew eventually to perhaps just more than that. This was the thickest crowd shot I could capture:
 

The full-size image allows head counts, pretty close. It's in the hundreds. This
image from TV during daylight, mid event. Night crowds were hard to gauge.
This was the main gathering spot, near the entrance, people flowed to here.

Climate Change Noise Missing

Public Baffled, Scientists Not So Much


The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

A near total lack of reports linking climate change to Hurricane Harvey (can you remember back that far?) has no environmentalists shouting about censorship or biased reporting.

This may be due to the fact that the “green” movement has learned the public doesn’t believe linking individual weather events to master environmental edicts qualifies as science, or that the case for climate change, also called global warming, climate disruption, carbon footprint and eco terrorism -- may have hockey-stick sized holes. (Recent hurricanes have had global alarmism shouting.)

A recently published report (Science News, Vol. 191, No. 9, p. 19) notes, “The world’s more than 100 million lakes are often overlooked in climate simulations. That’s surprising, because lakes are far easier to measure than oceans.” After a landmark study was published in 2015, scientists were shocked to find, “the picture is far more complicated,” than they expected. Although lakes experienced the same weather, some warmed faster, or slower, for reasons they could not explain or understand. “Such variability makes it hard to pin down what to expect in the future,” according to an aquatic biologist at Washington State U.

It seems that climate changes, because that’s what climate does. Human understanding of the phenomena is in its infancy, and calls for massive upheaval of humanity, to avoid massive upheaval of humanity, may be premature. Especially since some of the world's largest industrialists are excluded from current plans (communist China, India, more), and the developed world tasked with the invented burdens. Control of the purse strings and people on the receiving end of life style changes requires more care and thought that it may have received previously, according to leading experts. Changing our climate, if this is even possible, should not be handled with the alacrity we are all-of-a-sudden using to replace our monuments, according to leading experts.

Democrats Arrested, But Why?

Illegal Immigration Reporting Totally Twisted

No wonder people are misled.

The lamestream media told you:


“U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and two other Democratic members of Congress were arrested as they led immigration-related protests outside Trump Tower on Tuesday.

“The eight-term Arizona Democrat has been an outspoken critic of the Trump administration's crackdown on undocumented immigrants and its decision to end an executive action by former President Barack Obama that temporarily protected ‘dreamers’ from removal proceedings...”
 
http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/arizona/2017/09/19/rep-raul-grijalva-arrested-while-protesting-outside-trump-tower-immigration/681895001/


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:


Maintaining its official narrative, instead of reporting straight facts, AZCentral.com could have more accurately reported:

“U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and two other Democratic members of Congress were arrested blocking Manhattan traffic in an immigration-related protest outside Trump Tower on Tuesday.

“The Arizona Democrat, among the most far-left-leaning members of Congress, now in his eighth term, has been an outspoken critic of the Trump administration's effort to stop the massive illegal entry of people sneaking undetected across the nation’s southern border. He objects to Trump’s decision to end an unconstitutional executive action by former President Barack Obama, which created the current crisis of so-called ‘dreamers.’ Congress abdicated its check-and-balance duty, ignoring the illegal order when it was mandated.

“The metaphorical ‘dreamers’ are now at the center of deportation proceedings for their lack of legal status to be present in the country.”

The Washington Post had a slightly different take, calling it: “a protest of President Trump’s decision to end legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants.” That would more accurately read: “...to remove hundreds of thousands of adults in the country illegally under Obama’s unconstitutional action while in office.” In a now common propaganda tactic, the Post calls the illegal immigrants “immigrants.”

In predictable lockstep, CNN reported Grijalva’s arrest as part of, “a demonstration in support of immigrants,” without mentioning these are illegal immigrants. CNN omitted mention of Obama’s illegal action or these people’s secret entry into America past border guards. They go on to say the program, “was put in place under President Barack Obama” without mentioning anything about the lack of authority to do so, which has created this political crisis. A quick survey of other mainstream reports is unsurprisingly similar. No one breaks the mold.

If the illegal and unconstitutional nature of the former president’s program, and the sneak-entry across our border was mentioned, even if not prominently, the entire sense of the public conversation would change. National media is aware of this, as you are now.

Orders Issued to Disarm... Everyone?

Hurricane Irma Gun Grab -- The Truth

Front Page "Error" and Rumor Gone Wild


USA Today doesn't even bother lying carefully any longer.
Read the caption. 
Go ahead. I'll wait.
 
They're not putting up shutters. They're boarding up the windows. Sure, it's a small point. But it's blatant and obvious. The media no longer even cares about accuracy, even when it's front and center. The frequent excuse is they fudge to save space. Board up windows has fewer characters, and would be correct, too. USA Today. Sep. 9, 2017. Page One.
 

The lamestream media told you:

Non-stop coverage of the storm -- it's coming! it's coming!, it's here!, it's going!, it's gone!, preempting every other bit of news for days -- days -- even the Russian takeover of Donald Trump's brain, and his tax returns (forgot about those, didn't you).

Only Tucker Carlson questioned the governor of the Virgin Islands about it, live on FOX News, who seemed to have ordered every gun on the islands confiscated by the National Guard. Forty Google listings deep and not one other lamestream media outlet was on the subject -- but every gun and new-media source was all over it.

Publicly posted, click for a full-size image of the gun-seizure order:

VI Mapp's Gun Grab Order


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

There’s more to it than that.

Only the new-media and gun media really carried the story, because it was so “minor.” Governor Kenneth Mapp of the U.S. Virgin Islands, a U.S. territory protected by the National Guard, issued an order to confiscate the public’s guns and ammo before hurricane Irma arrived in early Sep. 2017. The “officials” down there know who has what, because all guns are registered -- the holy grail of the anti-gun-rights community worldwide.

Gun folks went bonkers. The order actually said the troops could confiscate basically anything, if they needed it for their purposes. It was not a blanket order to go door-to-door to disarm the public. But it was sloppy, and could have been read that way. In statutes enacted in 1972 they pretty much gave themselves that authority, and those “laws” should have been quickly voided as unconstitutional. They weren’t. That’s how this sort of power is stolen, bit by bit, without notice.

Is Anti-Semitism Increasing?

It Doesn't Matter, It Exists, Wha Choo Gonna Do?

The lamestream media told you:


"If Trump's not a white supremacist, he does a good impression."
-Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/if-trumps-not-a-white-supremacist-he-does-a-good-impression/2017/09/25/f070e250-a22b-11e7-b14f-f41773cd5a14_story.html?utm_term=.2c032ffcaa39

“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”

...and Trump is “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime,” that he hired and courted white supremacists, that “His rise is a direct result of white supremacy,” that “if he were not white, he never would have been elected.” ... and the Republican Party “has done nothing but endorse/promote white supremacy.”

The New York Times, conveniently attributed to a string a tweets by ESPN host Jemele Hill, so they can't be blamed for saying it themselves. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/18/opinion/trump-white-supremacist.html?mcubz=1

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

This group keeps hitting the nail on the head --
Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org
"You don't have to be Jewish to fight by our side."

While the "news" media, the pundits, the pros and antis, reps and dems,
TV and radio guys argue whether Trump is bringing out the crazies or
they're bringing out each other, what matters is what to do about them.
They're armed, dangerous, dedicated to trouble, bedlam, chaos and death.

If we weren't so mired in marxist/socialist propaganda this would be obvious --

“If anything should motivate you to learn about your precious American right to keep and bear arms and to use your freedom to arm yourself, the current dramatic rise in anti-Semitism is it. If you don’t understand that, shame on you, and you deserve what you get. History is repeating itself. Wake up children. Get armed, get trained, don’t become a victim. Yes, our position is more people properly armed. What is the anti-Semite’s position?”

DESTROY THIS STATUE!

A statue that really needs removal.
 

UNITED NATIONS PLAZA, NEW YORK CITY.    Don't worry, it's small.

An insult, not just offensive, to the Bill of Rights!
It has no place on American soil.
"Denial of rights guaranteed to the people by the U.S. Constitution."
Argue about other statues later - this one affects every American...
"Tear down that coil!"
   

"It is not art, it's a finger in freedom's eye."

The U.N.'s website describes it as "a giant Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver."
Every image I could find online shows it "as big as a house" (my wife's estimate, based on looking).
Couldn't even find a measurement online. This is how anti-rights efforts work.

I was there. It's revolver size. Yup, revolver sized. I was stunned. I expected to be dwarfed by it.
Just another lefty lie. I still don't have an image that shows perspective, searched too long, gave up.

"On the 2011 anniversary of the death of John Lennon,
fellow former Beatle Ringo Starr urged musicians to join
The Non-Violence Project..." (the statute was created related to this).

INVITATION
"I'm inviting Ringo, whose work I grew up with and adore, to a discussion of non-violence, and especially the non-aggression principle, so we can arrive at an intelligent common understanding of the difference between a knotted gun, a real gun, the tyrants behind the walls of the U.N., the possibility of peace on Earth, and real symbols of peace, like smiles, flowers and sunshine. C'mon Ringo, take me up on it, musician to musician."   --Alan Korwin

SHOULD BLACKS HAVE GUNS?

Sharpton, Jackson, NY Times, Community Organizers Say NO!

But blacks are arming themselves.

Just like white folk do.



The lamestream media told you:


Guns are bad. No one should have them. Well of course police should have them.
You trust the poe-leece, don't you?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The anti-gun movement is a function of the liberal left, which includes the famous “leaders” noted in the headline above.

If black leaders had their way, blacks would be disarmed (along with you). Guns are too dangerous. You'll hurt someone. Chances are greater that you'll hurt someone if you have one. Leave your safety up to the police (!). Underlying message -- you're too stupid to safely have a gun. Don't do it. Ignore 100 million neighbors who manage to safely do it somehow. Choose fear.

We leaders on the other hand, the ones bringing blacks this message of fear and danger, we can have guns (and that includes the headliners, bristling with armed protection). We, the authorities. We in gated communities and nice neighborhoods and we keep them that way. You don't need no gun. But we ain't exactly givin' up ours. Oh no.

Bottom line, when you strip away the Emperor's clothes, black lives don't matter, coming from the leaders of the democrat movements, who would ban guns for blacks, and gays and women and all the oppressed classes -- because they would ban guns for everyone. Except the people in power -- themselves. If that isn’t unequal treatment under the law nothing is.If black lives really mattered, there would be 700 murder trials for the 700 black murders Chicago experiences in a year. I can hearing you laughing. In your heart you know it's true.

Blacks are catching wise. A growing movement is spreading the message behind the Second Amendment. A two-edged sword? Of course. When you learn that peace and freedom are attained through a balance of power, and not the power of one group over another, you can reconcile it all. White folks have -- we're well armed and that's why we don't shoot each other. So look what’s happening (virtually absent from mainstream anything):


Black women gun training
Marchelle Tigner, in Savannah, Georgia, runs the first Atlanta-area class for black women to learn to shoot. Nov. 2016
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/27/black-women-guns-classes-racism-trump

Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction
Tiffany Ware, 44, Cincinnati, founder of the Brown Girls Project, which offers makeup workshops and other activities for building self-esteem in young black girls  -- has organized a group of black women for a firearms training class on 18 December

Black Women's Defense League
In Dallas, the Black Women's Defense League, launched in 2015, has seen the number of black women signing up for time at local shooting ranges at least double in the past 10 months or so.

Nicholas Johnson, law professor at Fordham University and author of Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms, pointed to a 2014 survey showing that 54% of black people felt that owning guns did "more to protect people than endanger personal safety", nearly doubling the 29% who said the same two years earlier.

Here is truth you won't find elsewhere --
