Till Death Do Us Part: The Gun Industry’s Effort To Avoid Being A Victim

Weekend, June 25-26, 2016 — They call it fear. They call it evil. They call it terrorism. They call guns everything except life savers. If they were not, why would police carry guns? Why would soldiers use guns instead of apologies? The sad fact for those who would remove guns from society – as did so many other dictators – is for defense of country, of family, of self. Generally, civilians – American citizens who work all day and some nights to pay to the Caesar of federal government the universal benefits for which, as individuals, most of us could never afford, things like national parks, bridges, river dams, power generating facilities on a country or global scale, and for national and personal defense – agreed to pay taxes as a tradeoff for the many good things we enjoy in life. But somewhere along the way, political leaders began thinking universally, “universal” being doing all things for all people like, yes, a dictatorship.

Avoiding dictatorship is what the founding fathers had in mind when they penned the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights. Included in the latter is the right to bear arms: guns for personal defense. Note that the 2A didn’t say the right to bear muskets, which were then popular and in use, and not dueling pistols or the simple take-forever-to-load flintlocks that became critical to the defense of home and self. Instead, they foresaw the progressive development of the gun over the centuries and the decades that followed. That’s right, they specifically said “arms,” a universal collective of whatever tool would fire a projectile in order to avoid their user from becoming a victim. Later, supreme jurists would further dig into the rationale of the constitution to determine that such arms for citizens should be those that were “in common use” by the military as the decades matured. Thus, in the case of today’s arms, that includes ARs, AKs, carbines, bullpups, and a wide variety of shotguns and handguns.

Any industry finds its detractors as Henry Ford and the Wright Brothers discovered. Some people will find reasons to blame others for instruments and tools they either don’t own, use, or leave to others to provide services, including personal protection. Today’s firearms industry has grown up and, in addition to its successes, there are those quick to point out the gun industry’s “failures” as if firearms were ripe for legal and monetary challenges. Fortunately, legislation to meet those efforts was put into place in 2005 and clearly spelled out its significant purpose of avoiding frivolous lawsuits by those who follow the fragrance of a legal money trail.

Guns will forever remain controversial. In urban areas, people without them don’t want to try to understand them until they’re forced to by some criminal act against them. In most suburban areas and all rural areas, guns are for protection and for putting wild fare on the menu, now as it was in days and years past, in the successful development of an industry that provides not just employment for thousands but for the safety and security of America’s citizens, all of which you’ll learn in this week’s edition of…..

Lock, Stock and Barrel: Understanding the Firearms Industry – NSSF.org,  15:31 min.

For more than 200 years, America’s firearms industry has made products that have been part of our country’s great tradition of freedom, self-reliance and enjoyment of the outdoors. “Lock, Stock and Barrel: Understanding the Firearms Industry” is a 15-minute video from the National Shooting Sports Foundation that covers the history, operation and regulation of the firearms industry.

Gun control backer Soros made millions off gun industry, 6:10 min.

International Business Times recently did a report on the Securities and Exchange Commission filings of Soros Fund Management, a company of billionaire Wall Street tycoon, George Soros, and found that it has been a top institutional shareholder in America’s top ammunition manufacturer. This seems to fly in the face of the fact that Soros is also a major financier of the gun control movement.

Gun Industry added 100,000 Jobs During Obama Presidency,  1:50 min.

President Obama, whether he realized it or not, actually boosted the economy by being the “gun salesman of the decade.”

Guns that Shaped Our History – Winchester Rifle,  45:11 min.

Winchester rifle is a comprehensive term describing a series of lever-action repeating rifles manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. Evolved from the 1860 Henry rifle, Winchester rifles were among the earliest repeaters. The Model 1873 was particularly successful, being colloquially known as “The Gun that Won the West”. Most popular of all was the Model 1894, a new design by John Browning widely adopted as a hunting rifle that saw production of over 6 million units before its domestic discontinuation 112 years later in 2006. It went back into production by Miroku Corp. in 2010.

The Police-Would-Never-Confiscate-Guns Myth

ALAN KORWIN | July 1, 2016 — It never ceases to amaze how quickly police and their supporters insist they would never do anything that violated the Constitution or our rights. If push came to shove they would stand with the people, defy authoritarian rule, block any attempt to implement illegal orders, and be the force for good and justice we would all hope they would be. They would never summarily confiscate our guns, that’s for sure!

Are there any examples of this? Or is this just lip service that sounds good and all the examples are the exact opposite? Does every case have “extenuating circumstances” that justify illegal entry, confiscating property, disarming the innocent, and gun confiscation at the slightest provocation? You can tell those questions are rhetorical. The answers are bad bad bad.  [full story]

The Motives Of A Madman Remain Uncertain

SHELBY MURDOC | Wednesday, June 15, 2015 — Once again we’re faced with non-stop media coverage and endless Facebook posts from friends and family filled with strong opinions about gun control following a sensationalized mass shooting. By now, anyone who doesn’t live under a rock (and many of those who do) have heard all sorts of details about Omar Mir Seddique Mateen’s rampage in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 others, many of them seriously before police killed him in a shootout.

There are many questions about Mateen, his motives, and his connections. He claimed in a telephone call to local news producer Matt Gentili to have made the attack “for the Islamic State” and reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIL before the shooting. It’s not clear, however, whether he actually joined as a member of IS in any official capacity or if he was acting on his own. [full story]

The Emerging Moving Target of Gun Politics

BOB ROGERS | Wednesday, June 1, 2016 — Whether or not you like Donald Trump you have to vote for him. Or Hillary. Those are your choices. Beyond that it is imperative that we stack the Supreme Court with pro-gun justices. Trump will do that. Hillary won’t. Trump will preserve the Second Amendment. Hillary will try to amend it. Trump will drag into the Republican party all those Bernie Sanders millennials who are Hillary haters. That generation of young voters put Obama into office in 2008 and they learned what Hope and Change really meant: Zero.

The result, if the November election puts Trump in the White House, will be the re-making of American politics. The majority voters are not the elite serious consumers of news, especially political news. The new majority voters are those who, in these social media times, want things, simple, straight, and fast. They have no time for digesting tons of daily news and information that cause others to ponder about the future of the country, much less the world. They are, in fact, the contemporary version of yesterday’s lo-fo ­­— low information — voter.  [full story]
