Leftists pushing more gun control: when gun crime is still plunging and more Americans oppose gun control

Gun ControlOnce again, placing the logic, common sense, proportion and rationality of Leftists into question.

Despite the bedwetting hysteria of Leftists over cops and black male shootings.

Why most Americans oppose more gun control

by Dr John R Lott, Jr

A new Pew Research Center survey finds that, for the first time in their surveys, the majority of Americans oppose more gun control. Gallup and CNN polls tell a similar story. Opposition to gun control has been increasing over at least the last couple of decades.

Gun control groups have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to try to convince Americans that gun control is the answer. In 2013, gun owners’ groups — including the NRA — spent less than one seventh as much on television advertisements. This year looks to be even more lopsided, thanks to the unrelenting efforts of individuals such as Michael Bloomberg, George Soros and Gabriel Giffords.

Perceptions have changed dramatically, with most people now believing the “More Guns, Less Crime” hypothesis. Gallup recently asked Americans if they thought residents are safer with a gun in the home. People answered “Yes” by a margin of 63 to 30 percent. In 2000, Americans gave just the opposite answer by a margin of 51 to 35 percent. In 2013,[3]  Sixty percent of gun owners listed “Personal Safety/Protection” as the reason for owning a gun.

Academic research aligns with current public opinion. If you have a gun in the home, that gun is far more likely to prevent murder than it is to be used in an accidental shooting or to kill a loved one.

Facts in evidence.

Shame.

Sadly: “Father Asks Obama to Use Executive Order to Bring Son Slain by Illegal Alien Back to Life”

Drew Rosenberg Life Stolen By Illegal ImmigrantFrom Breitbart.com:

Father Asks Obama to Use Executive Order to Bring Son Slain by Illegal Alien Back to Life

by Matthew Boyle

A grieving father is asking President Barack Obama to bring his son, who was killed by an illegal alien, back to life with an executive order on immigration. 

“While your Executive Order pad is out, can you write one to bring my son and the tens of thousands (actually over 100,000) killed by illegal aliens back to life and to bring our destroyed families back together?” asks Don Rosenberg in a letter to Obama. His son Drew was killed by an illegal alien who ran over him in 2010.

In the letter, Rosenberg notes that President Obama’s administration refused to deport the illegal alien who killed his son.

“I know that shortly you will be issuing some sort of Executive Order protecting millions of lawbreakers, many of whom have killed people but all of whom share some responsibility for those killed,” Rosenberg wrote. “I know that you want to prevent their families from being separated. By the way, your administration refused to deport the man who killed my son. I was told, ‘He’s only committed one crime of moral turpitude.’” 

What do you think the chances are that Mr Obama will respond?

Me too.

Monday: Ferguson grand jury in?

PULL UP YOUR PANTSSt Louis County has promised local law enforcement a 48-hour “heads-up” prior to the official release of its grand jury results regarding prosecution of former Ferguson Police Department (MO) Officer Dennis Wilson, whose likeness I shall not post here.  The media already has a sufficient number of photographs of Officer Wilson and his home with its address and surrounding neighborhood.

In the meantime, as I write this ahead (it is Sunday night at roughly 9 PM Pacific), Ferguson is already at a boil — certainly not assisted by the loving New Black Panthers and the overall delay of the decision.

It’s as if the blacks extant cannot wait to riot and cork off.  Frankly, I believe that to be true, no matter the decision.

Further, a young black Marine says: pull your damned pants up.

A challenge unaccepted and refuted in Ferguson, Missouri.

PreparationIs this what preparation looks like in Ferguson?

Ferguson MO MessagePants up.  Yeah.  Right.

LAWLESSNESS: Obama does away with the Legislative branch of the US government

Obama and Audacity of Hope Quote IllegalsWith a stroke of His Imperial Pen, Mr Obama has shredded the US Constitution and driven the United States towards the realm of any given pathetic banana republic.  Perhaps Mr Obama is simply trying to create more stars and bars upon the epaulets of his faux uniform.

Obama DictatorUnlawfully and unconstitutionally, Mr Obama has decided unilaterally that he can create his own nation-changing law and bypass Congress entirely — which means he has completely done away with a full third of foundational American government.  For those requiring a reminder, the three branches are: Executive, Judicial and Legislative.  Mr Obama has kicked aside the Legislative branch: the US Congress.

This is a day of infamy.  A day of Constitutional infamy.

What will this do?  It will incentivize people from far away — think Central America and South America, like the children a few months ago — to attempt to invade our southern border.  Some will come from the north and some from our lateral coasts.

“The problem is the central attribute you have to have as any leader, in any walk of life and certainly in government is trust,” Ron Fournier of the National Journal said. “This president has destroyed the credibility of his administration himself and government itself.”

Hugh Hewitt said that condescension is the proper response to Mr Obama’s executive order.  And I would tend to agree.  What is not warranted is any kind of reaction to include either a “shutdown of government” or an “impeachment.”  That would be playing right into the seriously stupid hands of Leftists.

That said, I don’t trust the GOP to not be stupid.  I wish I were more assured of a proper GOP response.

An edict such as this, no matter its name, is a precedent set that few people will want.  It is a precedent that can be referred-to in the future by future presidents.  Republican presidents.  Actions presidents take, unhalted, do nothing but provide fodder for more power-taking in the future.  Demorats fail to see and understand this concept.  They apparently can only think of the here and now.  This is nullification of laws and an essential re-writing of laws.  By one man.

Leftists “justify” Obama’s actions by pointing to Ronald Reagan, who they say created his own Executive Order with regard to immigrants.  And that is completely INcorrect.  Please see this very important article by Gabriel Malor.

This nation has checks and balances for a reason.  There can never be an Imperial President.  There can never be a monarch in the United States of America.  However, when Leftists and Demorats set a precedent, they fail to realize that a reverse precedent can thusly be set.  A presidential temper tantrum cannot and should not set precedent but it appears to be.  Where is his stated authority for this?

Which means: what if a president decided to turn a blind eye to lynching homosexuals?  What if a president decided to declare no borders?  What if a president decided to declare drugs fully lawful?

What if this president sets precedent for the reverse?

Further:

What if this means Americans can pick and choose which laws THEY wish to obey and which laws they wish to disregard. Goose/gander.

P.S.

Demorats and Leftists and parts of the GOP tried to bury us Conservatives.  They didn’t realize: we are seeds.
