Background Check Clamor Obscures Real Problem

The lamestream media told you:

Universal background checks are the real solution to gun deaths, or what we call gun violence, or what we call mass shootings, or what we call terrorism, or what we call mental-health problems.

Please forget that we used to call it five-day waiting periods, when it was known as the Brady bill. Back when it funded the FBI's sprawling campus that houses the NICS computers, allowing it to check out any American from a single location, for the background checks, that are now the golden fleece, and all waiting-period talk has been abandoned, because that was a worthless smokescreen, served its purpose with useful idiots, never amounted to anything or stopped anyone anyway. Selling guns to gang members and the rest, five days later, solved nothing. It was the computer, that's what mattered, and the statutory authority to use it.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Background check real issues, short form:

-- No mass murderers have been stopped, that's just the evidence. This is among the gun lobby's main points.

-- If the goal is to stop mass murders (the left says it is), this doesn't do that.

-- Related, 6,000 inner-city murders, the main criminal statistic, is unaffected after 20 years. The total lack of murder trials for that is also unaffected. So -- what's the point of background checks if the crimes are ignored.

-- The big issue: When hardened criminals are finally found, turned down trying to buy guns at retail, they are just sent away with their money. Is that what you support? (That's rarely even mentioned, no one supports that when they find out).

-- The background check ignores the problem of sociopathic children who want to mass murder their classmates -- the main reason people are clamoring for checks these days.

-- Most of the people stopped and denied their rights are guilty of nothing, the studies have found, they just lose their rights though bureaucracy.

-- The people turned down can't be convicted of anything.

-- The numbers of convictions (we're told the system weeds out criminals trying to buy guns -- very serious crime) is in two digits out of tens of thousands of denials and millions of checks. What is the system actually doing?

-- There is no reasonable way to get off the list.

-- There is not even a practical way to find out if you are on the list.

-- Muslim jihadis aren't perturbed in their quest by background checks.

-- Every gang member, mental case, would-be murderer and 100 million decent Americans who are already armed are, like, already armed, making the background check system superfluous for them to control crime.

-- The left-leaning response to that side of the problem (existing guns already owned) is, we'll get those guns too.

-- But think about that -- all this fuss is about new psychos who need their first gun. Didn't the media and the antis think this through?

-- The cost of the system, in billions (real numbers are not available for reasons unclear at press time) could be desperately applied to real crime-fighting needs, but is blocked by democrats who want the NICS system up.

-- The system collects the names of 12 million innocent Americans annually who buy guns, the real reason the system was built -- according to knowledgable insiders on both sides of the aisle.

-- In point of fact, background checks have been a huge success -- measured from the perspective of collecting gun owners' names.

-- A background check can be conducted without gathering everyone's name, but politicians and bureaucrats refuse to do that, because it's really the names they want -- they know the check doesn't accomplish much else. http://www.gunlaws.com/BIDSvNICS.htm

-- The studies of armed criminals show the checks don't stop them -- they simply use straw buyers who have no criminal record. Or get some of the 350 million guns already in private hands. Or some of the countless guns smuggled in with the same ease as fentanyl, coke, pot, heroin, sex slaves and everything else.

How much more do I have to put on this list before you, too, realize the background check is about collecting the names of the innocent, ignoring gangland murders, psychotic children, sociopaths or the jihad and misdirecting attention?

Remember, the FBI could easily circulate the names of the bad guys, like wanted posters, and gun dealers could check the list to stop retail sales to villains. Instead they require business people to send the names of all their customers to the FBI. Ask yourself why it is never explained like that (known as, "clearly").

Instead, it's the usual suspects: hoplophobes, leftist/socialist/statists, useful idiots, uninformed media, misinformed schoolkids, apparatchiks and more who want the government surveillance checks expanded. Will this help if they read it?

Bonus questions:

Can the sociopathology of democrat-controlled inner cities be addressed so the murder rate drops?

v How do we stop our children from becoming sociopathic monsters, and why is that happening all of a sudden?

Armed Citizens Quietly Protest

Pittsburgh Stages Armed Rally to Defy Abusive Government

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing on national news. Local news covered it heavily because there were... guns! OMG! but failed to explain the actual issues with any degree of depth or accuracy. The mayor and police officials got plenty of face time and expressed concerns and fear, at length. Reiterations of restrictive laws and bans received copious airtime, with regretful reminders that arms are not banned, but legislation for that was coming.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

With government officials attempting to enact laws that are strictly banned, Americans were in the streets protecting the blatant, unethical, attempted unconstitutional abuse perpetrated on the public by various officials, none of whom have been charged with anything yet, and remain in office. State law prohibited localities from enacting their own gun laws, but this hasn't controlled Pittsburgh "authorities" from attempting exactly that, reminiscent of how so-called "gun-control" laws fail to control criminals. It was only action by armed individuals, similar to how police control people who violate the law, began to maintain law and order.

The city got the message, apparently, and seems to be backing off its illegal power grab, which included infringement on people's property, the right to bear arms and reductions or eliminations of due process. A loss of due process is the subject of proposed criminal penalties for anyone attempting such violations of fundamental rights.

A simple web search will give you numerous posts of images, home videos, "news" media reports and more on the well attended Pittsburgh protest. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org issued a statement in support of the rally:

JPFO Statement for the Pittsburgh Rally

CIVIL RIGHTS RALLY IN
PITTSBURGH IS THE HIGH ROAD

Misguided effort to disarm Jews
and the public is wrong

JPFO Statement for the Pittsburgh Rally

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership respects and supports the efforts of our colleagues and patriots in Pittsburgh for exercising their rights to assemble and freely speak in defense of the fundamental human and civil right to keep and bear arms.

It is disheartening that some of our countrymen -- elected and religious officials included -- have been misguided into falsely believing that by weakening, disarming or making innocent people vulnerable we will somehow stop crime or forestall the actions of sociopaths. Nothing could be further from the truth. Today’s assembly in Pittsburgh is determined to get this important message across:

So-called “gun control” doesn’t control guns and doesn’t stop crime! It is a code phrase for disarming the public, and is never the right choice for public policy. You can’t arm slaves and expect them to remain slaves, and similarly, you can’t disarm free citizens and expect them to remain free. Watch carefully who does the disarming. A freely armed public is why America is the great magnet that attracts desperately oppressed gunless people from across the globe.

Taking lawfully owned firearms and accessories from the people who own them is infringement. Infringement is banned by the U.S. Constitution. The people who attempt to infringe on our rights are modern day red coats, dressed in business attire, who must be resisted by all available means. Infringers earn and deserve prison sentences!

The mass-media community is complicit in promoting the distorted message that weakness is strength, or disarming the average woman or man is good -- the precise opposite of the truth. Their incessant front-page promotion of mass murderers by name and image encourages copycats. They know this, and use it to further their nefarious cause of civil disarmament. Protected by heavily armed minions of government, these sycophants of the system violate every principle of ethical journalism and argue for reducing the public under absolute despotism, the sure road to the loss of freedom, genocide and enslavement.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership stands four square with our courageous allies in defense of liberty, property ownership and a heavily armed public, as the balance to power it was successfully designed to be by our intelligent, well educated and religiously inclined Founding Fathers!

Signed, The Management and Bd. of Directors of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership



“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.”

Last chance to enact National Carry, HR 38

Legislators let it languish, could still act.

House passed it months ago, all that's needed is Senate vote and Trump signature.

Could be completed in a few hours!
Mitch McConnell simply has to decide to call the vote.

The lamestream media told you:

Not a peep. But:
The Hillary investigation is swinging into high gear.
Yeah, right, where was this report, or any report, for the past two years.
Now that the R's are losing control, FOX and a few others are all hot and bothered about the stalled and abandoned Hillary investigation. This is where the real Russian collusion was. The whole thing is so perverted and corrupt it should make you nauseated. In a few weeks investigations will be all democrat controlled, you can bet the Clintons will skate.

They better be cautious with all the investigations they're planning for Mr. Trump. If they dig, and turn up dirt on Hillary, they can't just bury it, that would be criminal. It's hard to imagine how they could dig into the 2016 election and not dig up dirt on their sullied princess. What a bind -- they find damaging evidence and then have to commit felonies by not revealing it! "Be careful what you wish for, you might get it."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

I've been writing and warning about this for two years --
the promised National Carry bill that is only bait.
We're at the end of the rope.
The feds stripped out the part of this bill (HR38) where they pour money into the NICS check.
That was passed separately, and really made it look like Carry was just a smokescreen.
National Carry has been left idle by the republican house, senate and president to die.
It passed the House.
All it needs is McConnell to hold the Senate vote.
Will he?


Forwarded message:

ATTENTION ALL LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS:
NATIONAL CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY RECIPROCITY IS IN JEOPARDY.

Concealed handgun carry reciprocity is about to die. It is about to die through deliberate inaction or callous indifference of the U.S. Senate. But we have a small window of opportunity: 21 days left to achieve the goal that has eluded us for years. It seemed assured of being accomplished by the Republican controlled 115th Congress but, it wasn’t.

Congress still has time to act before the end of the year, but that does nothing to explain why Congress failed to get this done. It certainly had ample opportunity to do so.

WHAT HAPPENED? WHY DID A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED CONGRESS FAIL TO FULFILL PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN PROMISE?

The House of Representatives and the Senate did introduce several national handgun carry reciprocity bills in the last two years. One such bill was 115 H.R. 38, titled, “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. The bill’s synopsis reads: “AN ACT to amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State.”

The measure was voted on by the full House, and the Republican controlled House passed the bill, on December 6, 2017, by recorded roll call vote: 231 to 198. The vast majority of House Democrats voted against passage of the bill. Only 6 of 184 Democrats voted for passage of the bill. Contrariwise, the vast majority of House Republicans, 225, voted for passage of the bill; and 14 voted against passage.

One day later, on December 7, 2017, the bill was sent to and received by the Senate, where it was read twice, in accordance with Senate protocol, and referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary for action. And, then we heard—Nothing! Dead Silence!

The bill apparently fell into a deep, dark abyss.

Senator Mitch McConnell, who, as Senate Majority Leader, has ultimate authority for determining what bills are voted on by the full Senate, said and did nothing to get the Judiciary Committee to act so that the bill could be voted on by the full Senate.

Why didn’t the Judiciary Committee act on this? They certainly could have, but didn’t. And, why didn’t Senator Mitch McConnell urge the Judiciary Committee to action, so the full Senate would have had the opportunity to vote for passage of national concealed handgun carry legislation? We don’t know. He could have seen to this, but didn’t. Senate Republicans who can answer these questions, aren’t saying.

Much about this, we don’t know. It is deeply perplexing.

BUT, THIS MUCH WE DO KNOW—

Senator Mitch McConnell can get things done when he wants to. Senator Mitch McConnell was able to get Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. This wasn’t easy, given the strenuous pushback by Senate Democrats. And the Senator should be commended for his zealous, unflagging effort in that regard. He should be just as zealous in getting national concealed handgun legislation through the full Senate. He certainly could have done so. For some reason, he chose not to. Yet, he still has time to get this done before the 116th Congress begins its first term, on January 3, 2019, because, at that point, it would be futile. The House will seat a Democratic Party majority; and the Democratic Party leadership’s agenda will include the drafting of bills to restrict the right of the people to keep and bear arms, not to strengthen that basic, fundamental, natural, and unalienable right

The 2016 general election earned us President Donald Trump along with Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress. National Right-to-Carry was in our grasp. The timing couldn’t have been better. This is what law-abiding gun owners wanted, and NRA and other Pro-Second Amendment organizations campaigned vigorously for it. Our once-in-a-lifetime real hope for National Right-to-Carry is now slipping through our fingers.

The Senate had over a year to act on the bill, from late 2017, when it first received the bill from the House. But the Senate failed to act.

CAN’T THE SENATE SIMPLY PASS THE BILL NEXT YEAR AND SEND IT ON TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR HIS SIGNATURE IN 2019?

NO! IT CANNOT! All pending bills die.

“At the end of a two-year session, Congress adjourns ‘sine die’ or ‘without day’ and not reconvene until a new Congress starts some time the next January.

After that, the slate is wiped clean; there is no business pending. All of the ‘H.R.’ and ‘S.’ numbered titles that have been discussed and debated for the past two years will be archived.

When Congress reconvenes, the process starts all over again.”

When Congress reconvenes in 2019, House Republicans can reintroduce concealed handgun carry reciprocity but with a Democratic Party House of Representatives majority, the bill would never pass. So, whatever the Senate does in 2019, won’t matter because both Houses of Congress must pass a bill before a bill is sent to the President for his signature, at which point, a bill then becomes the Law of the Land, in accordance with Article 1, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution.

TIME TO PASS CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY RECIPROCITY IS OF THE ESSENCE!

There is no time to waste. The Senate is scheduled to adjourn on December 14, 2018. If the Senate fails to pass the bill by emergency roll call vote, we will have lost the only real opportunity to see concealed handgun carry reciprocity through to fruition.

And, keep in mind: the Senate’s failure to act on national handgun carry places extreme pressure on President Trump who made this issue one of the signature issues of his campaign for U.S. President. Failure to accomplish this goal can well lead to Trump’s defeat in the general U.S. Presidential election of 2020. We must place the Senate’s feet to the fire.” This is where you can help!

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

IMMEDIATELY CALL:

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (Chairman of the Judiciary Committee): (202) 224-3744
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541
Your Senate Delegation: (202) 224-3121

TELL THEM THIS:

“The Senate must vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 bill immediately. The bill passed the House on December 6, 2017, almost one year ago, and has since been stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee. That is unacceptable! We have only a few precious weeks to get this matter completed. The Senate must pass this bill and send it immediately to the President for his signature. President Trump will sign the bill into law, fulfilling an important campaign promise. My continued support for you will depend on your vote to approve this bill.”

You should also contact NRA and President Trump, reminding them of their commitment to support national concealed handgun carry reciprocity. The contact numbers are as follows:

The White House: (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414
National Rifle Association (NRA): (800) 672-3888

We must put pressure on those who can get this matter accomplished.

Making a few important phone calls will only take a few minutes of your time. It is quick and easy, and critically important to safeguard and strengthen our right to keep and bear arms.

What you do can make a difference and you will be proud to have taken an active part in protecting our natural, fundamental, unalienable, and sacred right to safeguard our lives and the lives of those closest to us, with the best means available: a firearm.

If you chose to do nothing, you will only have yourself to blame.

THIS IS OUR LAST REAL SHOT AT PASSAGE OF SIGNIFICANT PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT LEGISLATION!

DON’T HESITATE TO TAKE THE SHOT. YOU WILL REGRET IT BECAUSE IT MAY BE YOUR LAST!

Infringement is Constitutionally Banned

Punishment must be made swift and sure

"Officials" think anything is OK. It is not.
Those who would infringe must face punishment.

The lamestream media told you:

We have to take away the "assault weapons." These are too dangerous to have on "our streets." "We don't want to take away all your guns," says Mr. Hogg, convincingly, despite what all his supporters and media lapdogs say. The "assault weapon" ban simply bans anything with a magazine... and a grip. https://www.gunlaws.com/FeinsteinGunBanBillAnalysis.htm

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Civilians must have armed parity with police. That was the principle behind the Second Amendment. Government could not get out of hand if the the people were armed, the last bulwark against tyranny.

Infringement is banned in no uncertain terms in the Constitution. Taking or attempting to take legally owned guns from the public is infringement. Those who would infringe upon the public's right to possess and possession of arms must face punishment. It is not something they can simply do. Removing or outlawing firearms from the public is forbidden.

The actions of criminals, no matter how bad those acts may be, do not justify illegal actions against the public. Such logic is emblematic of the irrational behavior of so-called progressives in general. It is a sign of people who need medical treatment and are not getting any. It represents, among other problems, the logic error, appelare desperadi, "we must do something." You should not do something, you should do the right thing.

Disarming the public is not even remotely a solution to the actions of criminals or insane people. In fact, it only makes matters worse, by leaving the innocent helpless in the face of miscreants and sociopaths. Failure to see this is a sign of untreated hoplophobia.

One way of fighting this, untested at the current time, is creed discrimination. It is illegal to discriminate based upon creed. Though creed is often viewed in a religious context, it is also equally valid in a socio-political context. The fierce attachment with which many Americans cling to their right to arms is indeed a creed, dating back to Colonial times. Singling citizens out for special legal action is creed discrimination and illegal under civil-rights statutes. Where are the creative and ambitious civil-rights attorneys looking to break new ground and make a name for themselves...

Guns Are A High Calling

It’s Not Controversial -- It’s Virtually Holy

Alan Korwin

This article originally ran in the JPFO Bill of Rights Sentinel, Ed. 13

It’s easy to feel a certain degree of guilt about advocating for gun rights and the Second Amendment.

The amount of mud-slinging, criticism and abuse “regular” people heap on you, when you speak of guns is so enormous, it can weigh you down. It is difficult to bear. The constant berating, denigration and antagonism. The non-stop belittling. Endless bombardment by the so-called mainstream media, about crime and society’s psychos doing bad things, it makes it tough to see the forest for the trees, to stand up for what’s right and just and good.

Yet the brilliant Founding Fathers, the ones who ensconced the right to arms in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution must have had some method to their madness. And it turns out it wasn’t madness at all. It was brilliance.

They realized that no matter what they did about the lowly common man, the even lower common criminal was going to be armed. The despots and dictators, the corrupt power-mad immoral politicians, even somewhat decent politicians, and especially the determined slave owners within their midst were going to be armed to the teeth.

These malefactors were going to have and invent ever more deadly weapons and means of oppression as time went on. If Americans weren’t free to be equally armed, a free country was little more than a pipe dream.

Being called into the fray today for defense of an armed public is not a dark art or evil science, it is among the highest of callings. It is liberty personified. It means standing up to the darkest of powers, the most evil of evil people.

The world rulers, the masters of humanity, who would lord it over you, tell you how to live and what you can and cannot do, they are where evil lives. A Chuck Schumer, a Dianne Feinstein and their allies who would summarily disarm you, while they remain constantly heavily armed by hired thugs, they are the ones who should feel crushed by overwhelming guilt. They do not.

Without this stunning guaranteed personal right to arms, which no other place on Earth possesses, America could not be what it is. In our Founders’ genius and insight, they created what you and I could do to pursue the most robust and splendid course of political action imaginable. It is one you can join in with me.

These children now running loose, legitimately terrified for their lives thanks to psychopaths running loose, these kids would ignorantly disarm you in a false hope of creating safety. They are among the greatest threat to everyone’s safety we may have ever faced. They don’t understand this. And they are being used by evil manipulators hoping to accomplish an insidious goal for which they have been thwarted for decades. It is a malevolent plan without equal.

If not for guns, Europe would be speaking German. Without a robust right to arms, there would be no Israel. The despotic Arabs and Muslim nations would wipe Israel off the map, this is their unholy promise, stopped only by the force of arms. Where are any armed minions of “the religion of peace” opposing that pernicious threat? Nowhere to be found.

“If not for guns, Europe would be speaking German now.”

Wake up, mass media. What magic makes America immune to such intolerance? Who in the democrat party, the ones preaching tolerance and inclusion, is arguing loudly, or at all, for arming the rape victim? Nowhere to be found. Wake up, mass media. Wake up “progressive” America. Wake up to the highest political calling there is -- independent self-reliance with the power to act. Communist dictator Mao correctly said power comes from the barrel of a gun. Power to the people, right on.

ISN'T IT BETTER TO KILL THE MURDERER?

The lamestream media told you:

All these crazed permit holders carrying dangerous loaded semi-automatic handguns that spray bullets are nothing but bloody danger waiting to happen on our streets. The whole idea is just a gun-lobby scheme to sell more guns and make the gun manufacturers richer at the cost of our children's lives. If it was legal we would have the whole batch of them lined up against a wall and shot, which would be a good thing, they are just devil's pawns, if the devil was real.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

As gun owners know, CCW-permit holders are in the smallest demographic group for the commission of crime of virtually any ambulatory group of Americans. Self-educated and supremely conscious of the dire ramifications of using firearms in any situation, they are extremely reluctant to draw a firearm and use it unless it is absolutely necessary and justifiable. So-called news-media experts didn't get the memo.

Firearm trade magazines carry regular columns detailing the common and righteous use of firearms in self defense, and though these typically include stories where the gun-owner was completely in the right and may even end up vindicated at the scene, we all know this is frequently not the case. Long, protracted court cases, expensive lawyering and unknown results hang over any use of firearms in a public setting.

Yes, it's better to be alive, but: "It's always better to avoid a gunfight than to win one." Now there's a bit of wisdom you will never see in mass media, even the fair-and-balanced station, for reasons that were unclear at press time.

It's common for gun owners, after experiencing self defense, to obsess about why they were caught in the grinder in the first place. Coulda should woulda may interfere with sleep, work and play. Avoidance is the ultimate self defense and "PreFence" addresses that in scores of ways most people have never considered.


 
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill

By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano 240 p. #ST $15
http://www.gunlaws.com/books21Newest.htm

add_to_cart.gif  view_cart.gif

A veteran of the armed forces, national defense and private security, author Grossman, and DeGaetano, detail ways professionals keep their clients out of harm's way before harm appears. You should too. You should not be there in the first place.

"If you're reaching for your gun you've already lost."

Learn how to remain miles away from where you might need to shoot your way out of a bad spot. Even if you don't have to shoot the bad guy, being anywhere near that is being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I cannot recommend this piece of self-defense ammunition enough.

If you suspected this was going to be about killing mass murderers caught in the act, that's a complex question you can write to me about. Your chances of running across that are slim. What action authorities should take as a matter of policy is a separate question. Different rules and principles apply.

Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies - Not

Lamestream Report Based on Nonsense

Reported as if Credible, Without Real Basis

The lamestream media told you:

Science News -- Erika Engelhaupt -- "Despite a public debate that grows more fractious with every school shooting, Americans actually agree on gun policy to a surprising extent. According to a survey of more than 2,100 people, majorities of both gun owners and nonowners support 15 potential gun restrictions or regulations, researchers report online May 17 in the American Journal of Public Health."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Science News, a once respectable digest of important developments in scientific discovery, has abandoned even the pretense of neutrality or science, with a new report on firearms based solely on the nation’s leading gun-control advocates. “Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies” cites David Hemenway, described as “an expert on violence prevention who was not involved in the study.” This individual is widely recognized as one of the leading anti-gun-rights proponents in the nation, supported and quoted by gun-control groups, whose work finds no redeeming values to gun ownership.

The study itself comes from the John Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, an agenda-driven organization created in 1995 and funded primarily with a $50 million endowment from Michael Bloomberg (and joined by other left-leaning funders) for the expressed purpose of developing gun-control policy positions. Asking this source for data, and Hemenway to provide credibility is like asking the Flat Earth Society for maps.

The Hopkins Center, since its creation, has issued a steady flood of papers discovering a single finding -- guns are bad, cause harm, serve no valid purpose, and should be regulated, banned, controlled, and gun owners are basically a detriment to society. No valuable purpose to firearms or their role in society appears in any output from the Center, which dominates page after page in Google searches. Its single-minded results alone should prompt any reasonable scientist to question its findings, since firearms are clearly involved in peace-keeping internationally, stopping crime domestically, saving lives, and even if only in police hands, they serve a valuable civic function. Three consecutive years of credible research from the federal Centers for Disease Control shows private firearms prevent 2.5 million crimes annually.

While the Science News report claims gun owners and non-owners alike overwhelmingly support background checks, the actual survey was not described. As readers of Page Nine are aware, background checks have no effect on the main areas of mass murder that motivate the ill-informed public to seek them -- sociopathic children who seek to mass murder their classmates, Muslim jihadis waging war on Americans, inner-city gangs fully armed and committing 6,000 unsolved murders annually after two decades of background checks, and the recording of 12 million innocent Americans names yearly, in the false name of stopping crime.

Perhaps worst is the little-known fact that, after vicious criminals are identified during checks, trying to buy guns at known locations with the FBI on the phone, and having provided their names and contact info on signed forms (which itself is felony perjury), they are simply sent away, with their money. Whether Americans actually agree on that, as Hemenway, the Hopkins Center and Science News report is true, was unclear at press time, like the other highly controversial facts about background checks.

Setting the denied persons free might not be too terribly bad, since the denials are conducted by low-level computer clerks sitting in offices in West Virginia. The checks remove fundamental constitutional rights people should have without trials, due process or representation, and according to expert Dr. John Lott, false positives in the system exceed 90%. That’s proven out by the almost total lack of convictions, or even court cases, for the supposed criminals denied their rights in stores, another point Americans might not agree upon in the high numbers Science News unequivocally declares. No effort to reach Science News was made, since they have been unresponsive in the past, and the story is so hopelessly prejudicial.

Editor Nancy Shute, writer Erika Engelhaupt and Science News are of course welcome to respond, answer any of the claims made in this article and provide any evidence refuting this piece, or run an article in their publication addressing these points, which would be standard in similar cases. According to leading experts, that will not occur.

We Need More Gun Laws -- say what?

The lamestream media told you:

Surviving victims of the Parkland mass murders went on a 20-state 75-city summer bus tour they arranged to promote gun-safety measures that will stop future school massacres. They are seeking new common-sense gun laws against a Congress that has refused to act because the evil NRA has bought and sold its members. What the adults have been unable to achieve the kids may have a chance at getting done, at last. Yes, we keep running this story.

The common-sense measures the children are supporting include increased universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons and removal of dangerous guns from our streets. The tour includes a voter-registration drive for youngsters who will be turning or are 18 years of age.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

America has 94,000+ words of gun law at the federal level. Do the children know that? It's rhetorical. They do not. Every imaginable criminal act is already outlawed. New proposed laws only outlaw legal behavior, except -- No federal crimes (yet) for officials who infringe.

Gun laws don't cause crime (at least not directly).

Gun laws don't stop crime (or might be a slight deterrent to the weak).

Gun laws provide a way to gauge and punish criminals after they commit crimes. Every crime imaginable is already illegal. New gun laws, which are only proposed by democrats for reasons that are unclear, affect rights Americans have and do not address criminals in any new way. That's because all criminal activity with guns is already illegal, but I repeat myself.

If you want to see and understand the gun laws already in place across the nation, you get and read this, it has them all. Politicians don't know it. The public doesn't know it. Most judges don't know it.

You should know it:

The complex multi-city multi-state anti-gun-rights bus tour for the new Parkland political activist advocates has been staged and orchestrated by the nation's leading anti-Second Amendment political operatives, and funded by dark money forces who are remaining completely out of the public eye. The idea the kids did this themselves is as false as almost everything else about this micro-managed event.

Sociopathic children who want to mass murder their classmates are unaffected by gun laws. They don't care about their classmates or gun laws, they care about the psychotropic drugs most of them are on, a fact suppressed by mass media, but available to researchers and you if you look.

Even if "law" required every gun in America to be under lock and key, an infringement banned by the Constitution that would make guns worthless for their righteous and intended use, guns would remain widely available -- as they are to countless criminals who cannot have them at all. Kids get drugs, what makes you think they won't be able to get guns -- especially if they are intent on committing murder.

To be effective in combating the misinformation and anti-rights attacks citizens face from children on a bus tour, mass media that reports total distortion on gun issues, and neighbors and friends whose understanding is lower than their shoe size, read in plain English what our gun laws are:

Why Are Kids Killing Kids?

The lamestream media told you:

We need common-sense gun laws to stop the mass murders we are seeing across this great country. If only we had more gun laws. The big bully NRA is stopping Congress from doing the right thing. That's the problem. Imagine how much peace we would have if only we could get these weapons-of-war off our streets, with more laws. Maybe these kids on the march now, completely self-motivated, will finally come up with an answer.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Laws don't stop criminals. Laws describe punishment after criminals act. This simple truth is lost on many people who are uneducated, or cannot think straight, even after they're educated. More laws don't change these facts.

The children's March for our Lives, including the 20-state, 75-city tour supposedly set up by themselves as a summer jaunt, is heralded as a solution. For reasons that were unexplained at press time, they offer the same solutions the gun-control advocates have offered for decades -- more background checks, bans and confiscations of scary black guns, a new ban on bump stocks (a plastic item used in one unresolved crime in Sin City), and a proposed ban on additional resource officers (armed police) in schools. Also, assaults on the NRA and discrimination against anyone having anything to do with the NRA.

The NRA is the largest gun-safety organization on the planet. They are the ones who promote the gun-safety rules, teach the gun-safety trainers, formulate the policies that lead to decreases in firearm accidents.

The people who work there want their kids protected at school as much as you or anyone else. The idea that mass media could propose such a preposterous lie ("the NRA wants kids dead!" is stunning, shows the insanity of the left. It doesn't even make sense. The NRA stands stalwart against anti-rights activists who want to deny the Bill of Rights. What's wrong with that is the people who want the Bill of Rights abolished, not its defense.

According to one leading expert, kids are killing each other because society is teaching them not only to do so but how to do so. Every fiber of pop culture is filled with that message. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who has taught our armed forces to get over their inhibitions about killing sees it, and has documented it, in his amazing book,"Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill." This book will shock you. You may not be strong enough to read it.


STOP TEACHING OUR KIDS TO KILL
 
By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano 240 p. #ST $15

It's not just fun and games when Hollywood's super stars run around machine-gunning each other with glee, blowing each other's brains out at close range in full color with splat effects, or doing that bullet-death-dance they do.

Kids learn from this. There is no moral component to mass murder any longer. It's right there on the screen. The methods and tactics for killing and getting away are taught in movies, video games and especially, on TV every night. You switch channels and every click brings another gun, another murder, more death and no consequence. This has a consequence.

Grossman documents this with medical-, psychological- and combat-accurate references page after page. You will learn from this book. You will be outraged. You will have the verbal ammunition you need to fight back. He even provides phone numbers. You want to stop our kids from killing each other? Get a few of these and give them to your liberal friends who think guns are the problem. What a laugh that is.

Guns Are A Public Health BENEFIT

CDC Continues to be banned from interference

For good reason

The lamestream media told you:

The corrupt and detestable Republicans keep blocking funds for the federal government to do valuable research into gun violence and prevention of gun crime. This has been going on for decades.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

What are the chances the CDC, banned for decades from doing gun research, because it’s work is little more than gun-control propaganda, would ever come up with a result like the headline on this article? Guns are indeed a public health benefit. Guns are why America is still free.

It turns out that psychopathology, schizophrenia, psychosis, and the whole host of certifiable mental states that lead to violent crime and outbursts of insanity, leading to death and destruction, can be cured by “lead poisoning” -- criminals getting shot by armed citizens. Because guns stop crime and keep people safe, it is scientifically proven that gun ownership has a public health benefit. Doctors and researches might argue over the size of the benefit, or the comparative value of the benefit, but it is definitely there.

The CDC has never come close to recognizing any benefit from the “germs of guns” or the "disease" of gun ownership. It’s no wonder they are banned from inserting their known bias into the field, and calling it research. Only democrats campaign for re-injecting their bad medicine into the field. For them, it’s an alternate avenue of attack on fundamental civil rights, by groups with no legitimate value for American jurisprudence, looking for new ways to take away your guns, something they swear they will not do.
