If Gun Mass Murders Justify More Gun Laws

Mass murders with firearms justify stricter gun control laws: that’s the core assumption of the news media and politicians (which are pretty much identical). So what is the weapon that is the big killer in American mass murders? So big that more than half of all mass murder victims since 1657 were killed with this weapon, one that was not invented until the 20th century. My current research project is a comprehensive history of mass murder. I have identified 360 mass murders (defined as three or more persons murdered or wounded in a 24 hour period). This includes 5,948 dead. And the Read More >>

Do “Red Flag” Laws Do Anything?

The latest attempt to prevent mass murder is the adoption of “red flag” laws, whereby persons whose behavior or statements suggest that they might be a threat to others may be disarmed and prohibited from acquiring firearms.  You might think that’s logical.  Crazy people do often give plenty of warning that something running in the hamster cage isn’t a hamster at all. There are several problems with this solution: First is that mass murder is not just done with guns.  I am currently writing a history of mass murder in America.  I have identified 333 mass murders (3 or more dead Read More >>

Doctors on Guns

The American College of Physicians is recommending solutions to what it says,"continues to be a public health crisis," and "Firearm violence continues to be a public health crisis in the United States that requires the nation's immediate attention."  You would never know that murder rates are now below 1965 rates.  To quote Snopes: FBI statistics show, in fact, that the 2015 murder rate was among the lowest of the past 47 years, and indeed the lowest of any year between 1965 and 2009. Their requests include: ACP supports strengthening and enforcing state and federal laws to Read More >>

Dueling Chainsaws

A recent event in the Bay Area is a reminder of why California especially needs a shall-issue concealed weapon permit law.  If you have ever ridden a subway train, you know the profound sense of unease that comes from it.  Unlike a bus, there is no easy way out, even if you were prepared to jump out an emergency exit.  You are at the mercy of any crazy person on board. The Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) is the pride of Big Government sorts in the Bay Area.  It cost a truly astonishing amount of money to build (about $10 billion in current dollars), and remains a very expensive Read More >>

What Does the Kavanaugh Circus Mean?

It means that the gun control crowd is afraid.  While much of the screeching is about abortion, and this is certainly one area where Justice Kavanaugh is likely to look at original intent. Much of what is driving the fear of Kavanaugh, as Sen. Feinstein (D-LaLaLand) made clear in her questioning of Kavanaugh is the Second Amendment.  The July 16, 2018 Los Angeles Times was blunt about this: “With the addition of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court could have a conservative majority to strike down bans on semi-automatic weapons in California and other liberal states and to decree Read More >>
