    Meet the 'gun reformers'





    New term for gun prohibitionists doesn’t change their agenda

    There’s a new term for extremist gun prohibitionists, courtesy of The Hill, a newspaper that serves Washington, D.C. that can join a lexicon of other terms all designed to hide the fact that those who use the words, or are described by them, want to abolish your gun rights.

    And, as polls show, more than 80 percent of gun owners support the common sense reforms you have proposed to fix our broken background check system.
    Where in the heck did that 80% lie come from?

    Solid editorial. MAIG members need to all be voted out with the quickness, and anyone who wants to join that organization shouldn't be trusted with any level of power or authority.

    Easy, first I ask if you are in favor of laws that prevent criminals from purchasing firearms. If you answer yes then I get to mark you down in the group favoring common sense reforms.
    Now days you must not only be careful of what you say, but must also consider how your answer might be used.

    I lived in China for 6 months. Almost everyday I read about some idiot using a knife to attack and kill people. Private citizens don't own guns legally in China. Guns don't kill innocent people, IDIOTS do! The linked article is another attempt at propaganda to make people believe in giving up ther right to protect themselves and their families.

    From the same dark, smelly place all their other "statistics" come from. Like this one:
    Last year, 12,000 Americans were murdered with guns
    Since 2011 totals aren't even out yet, perhaps he's using the 2010 numbers. Oops, in 2010 there were just shy of 13,000 murders of all types. Firearms figured into just over 2/3 of those (8775).

    See: Gun crime statistics by US state: download the data. Visualised | World news | guardian.co.uk

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    In many cases these numbers are made up. They use statistical sampling. The same tool they wanted to use to count individuals in the census.

    They do not need actual hard count to claim to know a fact. If .02% of the population in New York City is murdered during a year then this sampling is used to prove that the same percentage of people are murdered in a small town in Utah. Just ignore the fact that no one was actually killed in that town during that time frame.
    If an actual body is never found in Small town Utah then we will call them "unreported murders". The statistics cannot be wrong.
