Quotes of the day

President Obama is quietly moving forward on gun control.

The president has used his executive powers to bolster the national background check system, jumpstart government research on the causes of gun violence and create a million-dollar ad campaign aimed at safe gun ownership.

The executive steps will give federal law enforcement officials access to more data about guns and their owners, help keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, and lay the groundwork for future legislative efforts.

It is unclear whether the National Rifle Association (NRA) will challenge any of the executive actions in court. A spokesman for the NRA did not return a request for comment.

***

“We got nine tenths of the way [on background checks] with Coburn,” says one senior Democratic Senate staffer. But the Oklahoma Republican argued that conservatives simply wouldn’t support a bill that expanded record keeping, even one that merely extended the existing system for commercial sales to private sales. Schumer said gun control groups felt strongly that expanded background checks without record keeping would be meaningless. The two sides amicably agreed to test the support for those positions on both sides…

There are three possible outcomes to the test of wills. Bloomberg and his allies could successfully pressure Republicans to back down on paper records, likely giving Obama a win on two of the four measures he sought in the wake of Newtown (a bill increasing the penalties for gun trafficking bill is likely to pass, while an assault weapons ban and an expensive bill boosting school safety programs are expected to fail). Alternatively, if the Bloomberg effort fails to pressure conservatives to accept paper records for private sales, gun control advocates will have to decide whether to accept expanded background checks without paper records, or scrap them entirely.

The last outcome would be a failure all around, given the broad support for universal background checks, and the evidence that they could do something to diminish gun deaths. Bloomberg’s group has compiled records claiming that last year 6.6 million guns were sold privately without a background check. And a Bloomberg News article cites “a 2004 Bureau of Justice Statistics survey of inmates convicted of gun crimes found that 80 percent acquired the weapons through a private transfer.”

***

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said that after the next mass shooting incident, members of Congress will be forced to explain why they did not act.

“People in the Congress of the United States don’t want to do this,” Malloy said. “And I think they’ll get some things done on trafficking, school safety perhaps, some of the background checks loopholes — but not all of them. Each time that that happens, we’ll continue to have this debate.”…

“Thirty-three Americans are going to continue to be murdered with guns each day and every day until Congress acts, and they are going to be hearing about it much more than they were six months ago,” Glaze said. “Reality No. 2 is that there will be another mass shooting, and when there is, people who refuse to do the easy things are going to have a lot of explaining to do.”

***

“But the actual legislation under review is minimal and meaningless!” It’s true: background checks and a bit more enforcement of laws on straw purchases is hardly enough—but (once again) they need to be supported not just as symbols but also because we have learned that any impediment to violence, however low, is better than none at all, and small ones can be surprisingly potent. All kinds of laws help reduce gun violence. As Richard Florida wrote, in a study published in the Atlantic, “Firearm deaths are significantly lower in states with stricter gun control legislation. Though the sample sizes are small, we find substantial negative correlations between firearm deaths and states that ban assault weapons (-.45), require trigger locks (-.42), and mandate safe storage requirements for guns (-.48).” In other words, the mechanism of massacre is simple availability. Any obstacle might spare the life of a six-year-old…

If American had gun laws like those in Canada, England, or Australia, it would have a level of gun violence more like that of Canada, England, or Australia. That’s as certain a prediction as any that the social sciences can provide. To believe that gun control can’t work here is to believe that the psyches of Americans are different from those of everyone else on earth. That’s a form of American exceptionalism—the belief that Americans are uniquely evil and incorrigibly violent, and that nothing to be done about it—that doesn’t seem to be the one that is usually endorsed.

Keep the laws as they are, and the shootings, very often of children and high-school and college students, will go on. The President put it well on Thursday: “It won’t solve every problem. There will still be gun deaths. There will still be tragedies. There will still be violence. There will still be evil. But we can make a difference if not just the activists here on this stage but the general public—including responsible gun owners—say, You know what, we can do better than this. We can do better to make sure that fewer parents have to endure the pain of losing a child to an act of violence.” That’s what the correlations show, and they show it beyond a reasonable doubt. Change the laws and more will live; keep them, and more children die. That’s not an emotional statement; it’s merely a descriptive one. It’s not a complaint—or really, any longer, a cry of pain. It’s not even a commentary. It’s just a certainty.

The districts that contain Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City ranked last in terms of federal gun law enforcement in 2012, according to a new report from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks federal data.

Federal gun crimes include illegal possession of a firearm in a school zone, illegal sale of a firearm to a juvenile, felon, or drug addict, and illegal transport of a firearm across state lines. In Chicago, the majority of gun charges last year were for firearms violations.

The districts of Eastern New York, Central California, and Northern Illinois ranked 88th, 89th and 90th, respectively, out of 90 districts, in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita last year, but it wasn’t always this way. All three districts fell lower on the list than they had been in years past.

***

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) responded to President Barack Obama’s latest call for action on gun control Thursday, launching criticism at the White House and promising to do everything in his power to stop the administration’s push for stricter legislation.

“It is saddening to see the president today, once again, try to take advantage of this tragic murder to promote an agenda that will do nothing to stop violent crime, but will undermine the constitutional rights of all law-abiding Americans,” Cruz said in a statement. “I am committed to working with Sens. Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, and Jim Inhofe — and I hope many other colleagues — to use any procedural means necessary to protect those fundamental rights.”…

“In any conversation about how to prevent future tragedies such as Sandy Hook, our focus should be on stopping criminals from obtaining guns,” Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has failed to make this a priority — in 2010, out of more than 15,700 fugitives and felons who tried to illegally purchase a firearm, the Obama Justice Department prosecuted only 44. That is unacceptable.”

***

The protective order didn’t help Deborah Wigg; the police couldn’t help; her neighbors and parents couldn’t help. Only if she’d had a gun and knew how to use it — after carefully disregarding everything Joe Biden has said on the subject — might she have been able to save her own life.

Numerous studies, including one by the National Institute of Justice, show that crime victims who resist a criminal with a gun are less likely to be injured than those who do not resist at all or who resist without a gun. That’s true even when the assailant is armed.

Liberals’ advice to rape and domestic abuse victims is: Lie back and enjoy it. The Times’ advice is: Get a protective order. The NRA’s advice is: Blow the dirtbag’s head off. Or, for the delicate: Resist with a gun, the only effective means to stop an attack.

Apparently a lot of abused women prefer not to lie back and take it. Looking at data from Detroit, Houston and Miami, Margo Wilson and Martin Daly found that the vast majority of wives who killed their husbands were not even indicted, much less convicted, because it was found they were acting in self-defense.

***

It goes without saying that any loss of life from criminal use of guns is tragic. Morgan believes that magazines which hold 30 rounds should be banned. Adam Lanza had several and reportedly reloaded four times. He stopped his spree when other guys with equal magazine capacities arrived on the scene. The takeaway: he reloaded. It takes seconds to reload. It takes seconds to reload a handgun — the atrocity at Virginia Tech was committed with illegally used handguns. Morgan says high capacity magazines should be banned to prevent massive loss of life. Obviously 26 lives lost is heinous, but are ten lives lost OK? Ten rounds was the limit under the ban enacted in 1994 (after which Colombine occurred). Some governors say now only seven rounds are acceptable. So are seven lives lost acceptable to Piers? By falsely tying saving lives to the number of rounds allowed in a magazine Morgan inadvertently answered that he would prefer zero rounds in the chamber, using his logic and the standard of measurement he himself established. Excuse the irony that more lives were saved when good guys with equal rounds showed up at the scene — but note that this was omitted.

The precedent has abused his executive powers to bolster the national background check system,

To make it more annoying and un-Constitutionally intrusive on law-abiding Americans, no doubt.

jumpstart government research on the causes of gun violence

Having the Criminal-in-Chief and his lunatic junta force lawful gun dealers to sell weapons to straw purchasers for the mexican cartels would be a good start. Will someone impeach this pr!ck, already? It’s well past time to get this ineligible America-hater out of office. I think his 60 clear violations of the Constitution and our laws is more than enough. His treasonous acts ought to be figured in, too.

and create a million-dollar ad campaign aimed at safe gun ownership.

Damn that sequestration!! It was supposed to be a billion dollar ad blitz from the White House … since that is what this criminal White House thinks is their job.

Someone rid me of this Jakarta-raised, muslim-oriented, dog-eating retard. My G-d, how much more will let this miserable, criminal POS do?

The districts that contain Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City ranked last in terms of federal gun law enforcement in 2012, according to a new report from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks federal data.

You can take this one of two ways;

1. There is less enforcement activity because they have had so much success in “getting guns off thee streets” that there is less criminal activity. Or

2. They are simply not bothering to take action against criminals on gun-related charges.

(2) is the more likely, IME. Prosecutors tend to plea-bargain “gun charges” away enroute to a plea deal. Mainly because the Feds have a bad habit of not following through on their part of the job, especially BATFE.

As for the idea that if we had Canadian, or British, gun laws, we’d have less “gun crime”, that sort of crime has exploded in the UK since the Blair crowd effectively abolished private gun ownership.

And as for Canada, sorry, but there are a lot fewer crimes in Canada simply because there are a lot fewer people in Canada compared to the U.S.; 32 and a half million vs. over 312 million. That means about one-tenth as many potential perps, everything else being equal.

As the old saying goes, figures lie, and liars figure.

It would also be interesting to see the sentences and post-sentencing actions of the criminal justice systems in each jurisdiction.

Do you remember the girl, Hadiya Pendleton, who performed at Obama’s inaugural, and then was murdered a couple of weeks later?

One of her confessed murderers, Michael Ward, pleaded guilty in January 2012 to a FELONY: Aggravated unlawful use of a weapon…A CLASS 4 FELONY. He received two years’ probation…WHICH HE HAD VIOLATED THREE (3) TIMES IN LESS THAN ONE (1) YEAR.

If his probation had been revoked and he had been in jail or prison, Hadiya Pendleton may very well be alive today.

I have to strongly disagree. The damage Barky has done has been, largely, permanent and irreparable. And that the GOP has let him do it without ever even approaching talk of impeachment or anything of the like is unforgivable. Barky should have been treated like the 84 IQ treasonous criminal that he’s always been but the GOP has acted as if Barky had never even thought of breaking any laws or perverting any foundations of our nation.

Obama Using Executive Orders to Bypass Congress on Gun Control

Even as the Senate prepares to vote on gun control measures next month, President Obama has been using executive orders to broaden the background check system, increase research on gun violence, and “create a million-dollar ad campaign aimed at safe gun ownership.”

The background check expansions contained in the orders will give “law enforcement officials more information about guns” and gun owners, as well as more information on criminals and the mentally ill.

These efforts have been done quietly and are viewed as part of a larger effort to pressure Congress to go the President’s way on gun control.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, has praised Obama’s gun control push but says the executive orders fall well short of what Congress could accomplish through legislation.

Cindy Munford on March 29, 2013 at 9:35 PM

I did know that. My cable company was losing their HC signal during the second episode, so I caught up later in the week on Lifetime.

Does Obama has the backbone with NK as he has with law abiding Americans?
Or vise verse?

Electrongod on March 29, 2013 at 9:17 PM

NK is a freakin squirrel. What a fecking joke this NK bullsh1t is. While Everyone’s going to be looking in that direction now, the Marxist Incubus will continue destroying the fundamental fabric of this country.

And much of it is irreversible- tack on 10 million to the voting roles, and it will happen- we will enjoy a permanent minority status- if we’re not there already. Sure yay for Rand, or Rubio or Walker – but that’s no where near the seat of power. They are being so played.

The only solution is to take down their media propagandist power, that would allow -MAYBE- a voice to awaken enough Americans to vote these Communists out of power. But the spread of the welfare state is fast and permanent- and it may be too late.

SCOTUS takeover is coming soon.

This is not a problem just until 2016.

You have a third rate junior Senator from Chicago with no practical evidence of qualifications as the highest executive in the land moving confidently forward in outright violation the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and the best that can be expected is a filibuster that he can easily get around using EO’s, and there’s no blowback.

You have to see this in a larger context. This is about more than gun control.

This country has been through this type of tyranny before..

Maybe “And continued..”

Cleombrotus on March 29, 2013 at 9:42 PM

It’s about everything. Gun control is everything, the fulcrum point of the war of Left and Right. I didn’t get this for years. It’s the reason for Fast and Furious — which was as good a glimpse into the thinking and priorities of the Left as we could have possibly had. Darrell Issa and the rest of sound-and-fury knaves in Congress missed the real meaning of it. None of them can connect dots, or want to; all are terrified of even invoking the the term Leftist. So this is why we’re here now. And if this patch of ground is lost, it’s truly over.

Yep. Every statist dictatorship that has ever succeeded in seizing power has disarmed the populace first. And if we are disarmed, a dictatorship will be next. Multiple party politics will be over.

Tell me one Democrat/Liberal inspired legislation or public policy enacted in the last 60 years that has been revoked, diminished, curtailed, or otherwise terminated?

How long will, for example, TSA be empowered? When will that end?

Cleombrotus on March 29, 2013 at 9:55 PM

Why do I get the feeling that all those ‘numbers’ quoted by lefties are probably one’s THEY PULLED OUT OF THEIR ASSES?

Cleombrotus on March 29, 2013 at 9:51 PM

I get you position..
I think this country has been convinced to the point where presidents had more then two term..

Even one of them wanted more then 9 justices on the Supreme Court..

But the country still was active…

Obama may be a radical in our time..
He isn’t the worst radical..

And the worst radical didn’t have the Information Highway.

Just my take.

*I know*

How many liberal public policies that were enacted in the last 60 years that have survived any public opinion..

Essentially are not on the radar because the work?

Electrongod on March 29, 2013 at 9:58 PM

He has unprecedented power and an infrastructure behind him to implement policies that would have been unthinkable when Prohibition was proposed.

Both the policies AND the infrastructure.

You and I have little to nothing to say about it. Oh, we can crack wise on the internet but, at the end of the day…

It is really more like the parable of the Phoenix this time I think, depending on how far it goes, big government expended after the Civil War, if we go that far this time, I think you see a reverse and more individual state focus.

MarshFox on March 29, 2013 at 10:05 PM

rrpjr-

Lose? How about I have nothing to lose?

I don’t think you understand. Forget internet bravado.

I’m here to tell you,,, maybe they win, but it’ll be ugly.

There’s a giant out there. It ain’t unarmed hippy leftist.

I’m 44 and too old to run. There isn’t anywhere to run. And I’m too free to be ruled over. If I die a few years early so be it. No kids. Well armed.

You can express surrender. When it comes down to it you’ll fight. When you see what happens to the sheep.

Sometimes you don’t get a choice not to fight. And sometimes losing isn’t an option.

Just about every major city in the country has been run under Democrat initiatives for the last 60 years and NONE of them are “working”, but you don’t see any move to revoke or repeal any of them, do you?

In fact, there’re calls for more of the same, from the electorate.
