@bullets_bikes_bacon but “politicians” should put a limit on the amount of rounds “we,” law abiding concealed carriers have to potentially protect ourselves or loved ones, the type of guns we buy and own, how long “we” wait to get a gun, when we stand our ground or have to retreat?
when you take the power away from the people, you know what happens, right?
criminals don’t submit background checks or follow laws, criminals don’t agree to give their fingerprints to the sheriffs office, criminals don’t care about others lives when they are hell bent on committing a crime.
the average police response time in the united states 11 minutes! according to fbi stats there’s 16.6 leo’s per 10,000 civilians in the u.s. they simply can’t be on the scene before every violent criminal commits a crime.
it doesn’t matter if the bad guy has a sword, nunchucks, a home depot truck, or a knife you don’t limit the abilities of trained, law abiding gun carriers and owners from potentially stopping or ending an attack on innocent lives. period, dot! gun free zones are criminal protection zones, sadly we’ve all seen how those work.
crime in the united states is down and gun sales are up, that’s a fact, we don’t need more gun restrictions we need to look at the root cause!
restrict gun ownership from the people that abide the law and watch those stats flip flop.
contact your congressman’s office and express your thoughts on gun bans and taking guns from “the people” that would protect innocent lives from acts of violence and crime committed by “criminals!” meanwhile, most high level, whether it be state or federal, politicians have armed guards that will “continue” to protect them and their loved ones, without question. are their lives worth more? take action, be heard! 🇺🇸➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
no guns, know crime.

Because the fear that government has over a capable citizenry is something they cannot afford to admit. instead they lie about the need for gun control and gun bans as a way to increase “public safety”. every single pro gun control argument is geared towards and verbalized to the lowest common denominator- it’s verbiage designed so that even a child can understand what the goal is: to criminalize and demonize every single law-abiding gun owner in this country as “evil” and that only government can protect you this you must bow down and beg for everything that they provide. #propaganda#lies#2ndamendment#shallnotbeinfringed#2a#secondamendment#1776#saywhen
If you’ve participated in firearms at all over the last dozen years or more, you’ve probably heard most of the arguments on both sides. after eight years of an obama presidency with no significant federal firearms legislation we’ve begun to see some action from the trump presidency. but, no longer are anti-gun groups solely going for that home run of federal bans. the new face of gun control is a hybrid of tactics that have worked for other issues in the past:
push for local/state ordinances
the 144th congress (2015-2016) passed 329 pieces of legislation into law. at the same time. in 2016 alone, california legislature passed 900 bills into law. while california may not be the pulse of the nation regarding bill passage, it’s still just one of fifty. when anti-gun groups saw that they were liable to fail at the federal level, they began focusing more at the local. we’ve seen this before, and many ended up with draconian laws like the ny safe act. in the current push, even states people considered gun friendly like florida and vermont passed feel-good-do-nothing legislation.
while overt proponents of firearms are used to being shouted at online, businesses don’t always take it so well. retailers like dicks, who stopped carrying so-called, “assault weapons” years ago made new declarations of not carrying them; nothing new there. however, citigroup not extending their services to firearms manufacturers is new. youtube pushing off good content creators is new. and most recently, governor cuomo is outright urging banks and insurance companies to not deal with firearms manufacturers.
no doubt more will add to the pile soon. for that pr and virtue signaling.
Cdc surveys in the 1990s, never publicly reported, indicate nearly 2.5 million defensive uses of guns a year. that matches the results of gary kleck's controversial surveys, and it indicates more defensive than offensive uses of guns.

many people who support gun control are angry that the federal centers for disease control (cdc) are not legally allowed to use money from congress to do research whose purpose is "to advocate or promote gun control." (this is not the same as doing no research into gun violence, though it seems to discourage many potential recipients of cdc money.) but in the 1990s, the cdc itself did look into one of the more controversial questions in gun social science: how often do innocent americans use guns in self-defense, and how does that compare to the harms guns can cause in the hands of violent criminals?
florida state university criminologist gary kleck conducted the most thorough previously known survey data on the question in the 1990s. his study, which has been harshly disputed in pro-gun-control quarters, indicated that there were more than 2.2 million such defensive uses of guns (dgus) in america a year.
now kleck has unearthed some lost cdc survey data on the question. the cdc essentially confirmed kleck's results. but kleck didn't know about that until now, because the cdc never reported what it found.
