Gun Rights: Death By A Thousand Cuts

As much as I hate to admit it, they’re never going to just “come and take it”. Disarmament of American gun owners and the death of their rights will be a very gradual and well-disguised process. There obviously is not enough support for such extreme measures of gun control, given that 43% of all American households own at least one firearm. They won’t be coming for your shotguns and bolt action rifles and commonly owned handguns… yet.

Gun Control Is Re-Branded Gun Violence

TJ Roberts | United States

On January 9th, 2019, Dianne Feinstein introduced the Assault Weapons ban of 2019 to the United States Senate.

It takes over TV and radio with shouty gun-nuts and weepy children. Commentators and journalists often forget the measures and laws to prevent shootings already exist. They forget the main issues contributing to gun violence are poverty and ineffective law enforcement. We will never solve these root issues because the politicians voting on them know little about poverty and law enforcement, and less about firearms.    Continue reading “Education in Firearm Safety Will Limit Gun Violence”
