Trump or Clinton, stricter gun control is inevitable


CNN)It's impossible to run for President without having a firm position on gun control. For every candidate in every election campaign, it inevitably becomes a dividing line.

And 2016 is no different. At various stages, Donald Trump has held differing positions on the matter, but has been sufficiently in favor of protecting the second amendment to secure the support of the NRA. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, while claiming to respect the second amendment, has made clear that she wants to see tighter control on gun ownership that "tries to save some of these 33,000 lives that we lose every year."

But no matter whether it's Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton who captures the White House next week, America's frightening rate of death by gunshot wounds will certainly be forced into retreat. One day.

Because it is inconceivable that the people of such an advanced nation will tolerate an ever-worsening state of armed violence and insurrection, there must come a time when solutions already tested and championed by the United States are deployed to reduce the country's toll of 33,000 firearm-related deaths each year.

In hindsight, how naďve were we to imagine that the massacre at Columbine High might prove to be the tipping point? Thirteen years and 421,000 American gun deaths later, even the slaughter of 26 mainly white children and teachers at Sandy Hook couldn't induce the US Congress to act. Clearly, the country's gun death toll must get worse before it gets better.

But take heart, America already has the solutions.

Since 1934, US federal law has mandated licensing and registration for machine guns, sawed-off shotguns and rifles. It works. Such firearms quickly became, and remain the guns least used in crime. Today, the few states that similarly regulate much more common handguns point to similar effects, even when undermined by their gun-lax neighbors.

On its roads, America dramatically reversed the soaring toll of death and injury by automobile with a holistic array of evidence-based public health measures. The world followed suit. Licensing and registration did not lead to mass confiscation, and cars remain objects of maleness, power and freedom.

Congress Mulls Overturning Obama’s Social Security ‘Back-Door Gun Grab’

Congressional lawmakers will review a final rule issued by President Obama in December that stomps on the Second Amendment rights of Social Security beneficiaries.

According to the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, Obama’s Social Security rule qualifies SSI and disability insurance recipients as “mental defectives,” and therefore incapable of legally owning firearms.

The rule allows those affected to file a petition for “restoration” of their Second Amendment rights, yet tens of thousands of legal gun owners must now prove “their possession of firearms would not harm public safety or the public interest, even though the government never established, or tried to establish, the contrary,” NRA-ILA added.

NRA-IRA executive director Chris Cox praised Congress’ decision in a Wednesday statement.

“Congress’s decision to review the Obama administration’s back-door gun grab is a significant step forward in restoring the fundamental constitutional rights of many law-abiding gun owners,” he wrote. “The NRA has been fighting this unconstitutional government overreach since it was first discussed and we look forward to swift congressional action to overturn it.”

“We are pleased that Congress is moving swiftly to ensure that law-abiding Americans’ constitutional rights are respected,” he continued. “We would like to thank Reps. Sam Johnson and Ralph Abraham for leading this effort in the House, as well as with Speaker Paul Ryan for his leadership on this issue.”

3 teenagers, 1 infant shot at Alabama church's Easter carnival

Three teenagers and one infant were shot Saturday night at an Alabama church's Easter carnival, officials said.

The victims' injuries are not life-threatening.

Center Point Fire Chief Donnie West told reporters that first responders headed to Cathedral of the Cross in Center Point -- part of the Birmingham metropolitan area -- around 9:23 p.m in response to a possible shooting.

"Once we arrived, we found four victims," West said. "One was a small child less than one year of age. Three others were teenagers."

The teenagers were transported to UAB Hospital's trauma center, and the baby was taken to The Children's Hospital of Alabama, both in Birmingham.

It is unclear what prompted the shooting.

ABC affiliate WBMA reported that 900 people -- including 100 who were waiting in line -- were at the carnival at the time of the incident.

According to WBMA, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office has taken five people into custody for questioning.

West said of those in custody, "they are just individuals of interest that [police] are talking to."

The investigation is ongoing, and will be led by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

Breaking: 6 Dead and 49 Wounded!!!

http://redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=81213
5/31/17
Another tragic weekend in Chicago has passed and the body count continued to grow with no solution and no real care from the mainstream media.


Allenbwest.com reported: Yes, it was another “holiday” weekend in Chicago. Over the long Memorial Day weekend, six more souls will now have memorials added for them – though their battlefield was sadly close to home.

Between 6pm Friday and 3am Tuesday, 49 people were shot and wound plus six shot and killed. Tragically, this is an “improvement” over last year when 71 were shot and seven were killed.
Breitbart reports, On April 24, 2017, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) suggested the violence in gun-controlled Chicago proves the need for more gun control. He specifically pushed for more regulations on Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders.

Well, of course he would, but as we’ve reported here, that’s not going to help a damn thing.

During the Obama years, concealed carry permit holders soared, but the murder rate dropped by 14 percent. To date, Chicago has had 233 homicides, compared to 261 last year, a drop of 11 percent, but that’s mainly because last May was so high.
In any event Mayor Emanuel, more gun control is clearly not the answer. Legal permit holders are not the cause of crime, as they’re far less likely to commit a firearm violation than even police officers. And to date in Chicago, officers have been involved in only 5 of the 233 fatal shootings, just two percent of the total.

Supreme Court declines to take up two Second Amendment cases

Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court declined Monday to take up two Second Amendment cases for next term.
The first case dealt with a San Diego ordinance that required San Diego gun owners to have a good reason to carry a concealed firearm outside the home.
The second case concerned two men from Pennsylvania who challenged the scope of a federal law that bans felons and some individuals charged with misdemeanors from possessing firearms.

Since issuing two landmark Second Amendment decisions in 2008 and 2010, the court has largely declined to take up more cases about the scope of the constitutional protection under the Second Amendment.

Gun rights advocates will be disappointed that the court once again declined to review lower court decisions that upheld local and state laws limiting the rights of gun owners.
