If you’re someone who favors gun control, then, you probably think that the gun violence in your city, in your state, is due to the more lenient gun laws in the states surrounding your state. And we have an example of this thinking: there was a candidate for mayor of Chicago a couple of years ago who said exactly that (you can read about that here).
That argument is based on the assumption by anti-gunners that there can’t be any flaw in their thinking because, of course, they’re right, so (they think), stricter gun control everywhere would keep guns out of the hands of criminals.
Except it’s wrong. And we have proof that it is wrong. In fact, we have information that a major criminal organization gets many of its guns from a state with some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. Sol Prendido writes,
Mexico suffered more than 40,000 fatal shootings in 2018, according to public briefings by Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard. Of the guns used in crimes in Mexico and traced back to the United States, about 41% came from Texas, he said.
An estimated 19% came from California, 15% from Arizona and 25% from other states.
That’s right, nearly one-fifth of guns used in fatal shootings in Mexico were from California. But I thought that California has such strict gun control laws that it would be impossible for people to illegally buy firearms there. Or for gangs in California to get firearms. Or for mass shooters in California to get firearms. Or for any gun crimes which happen in California to actually happen there.
Or for anyone to get guns in California which could, then, be used anywhere else.
Sounds like gun control is working incredibly well there, don’t you think?
Of course not. It’s an absolute failure, yet, anti-gun politicians and government bureaucrats keep trying to shove gun control down out throats “for our safety,” and the mainstream media is complicit in this con job.
And they wonder why we don’t trust them anymore.
Our Founding Father’s in their wisdom set up 1st and 2nd amendments to provide for the survival of our Constitution and our country, which gives us a way to defend ourselves, family, friends, neighbors from all enemies foreign and domestic including those elected to represent the people that have become “tyrants”. We need to get off our laurels (asses) now before we lose it all….America.
I agree! Vote out those anti-constitution politicians. But the real problem is computer voter fraud. I have been around since computer punch cards and have learned a thing or two about hardware/firmware/software along the way. A competant technician can get on a computer, make changes to data, and delete keystrokes and file access records from memory and files. The result is No Evidence of Tampering. Computers are in no way tamper proof.
We must get them before they get us. More sheep dogs, fewer sheep.
Don’t you mean less WOLFES.
It was said that 41% came from Texas; how many were stolen? FTH, how many from other states were stolen?
Agree completely with you Fred.
I think we are missing the most important fact in this entire story is that the entire country of Mexico is very anti gun. With that fact known, I find it remarkable that the entire anti gun country of Mexico is much more gun violent than the extremely gun access friendly country of the United States of America! This proves that gun control laws, wherever enacted, do NOT work. From the entire country of Mexico with country wide massive gun access restrictions to the various Democrat controlled big Leftist cities in America, with some of the most strict gun access laws in our country & also the most gun violence, this proves that gun control laws do NOT work!
Criminal organizations and their collaborators get into politics. They make the laws in L. A., Chicargo, N. Y., Baltimore, D. C., etc.
I doubt that cartels are walking into gun shops in commiefornia to purchase any firearms. They have laws there will require anyone purchasing a firearm to be video taped! And the usual ID required to purchase a firearm and background checks.
This is another excuse for commiefornia to pass even more restrictive laws about firearms. Of course, I don’t know what is left for them to pass. One article said commiefornia had over 800 gun laws on the he books. So how come crime hasn’t stopped there? How come crime is going up in commiefornia?
In broad daylight, in commiefornia, shoplifters walk into clothing stores and grab arm fulls of clothes off the racks and walk out to waiting cars and drive off. Nobody does anything to stop them. People use cell phones to make videos of this and it’s been shown on TV. If these shoplifter’s ever do get caught, they are not charged with any crime and are let go because they are “poor”.
In many Democrat run cities, they now have a “no bail required” and release criminals back to the streets to commit even more crimes.
Maybe if these Democrat run cities would stop listening to a bunch of loud mouth trouble makers, criminals, looters and rioters, and stopped trying to defund-abolish the police and let the police go out and arrest these criminals and put them away in jail with long sentences, then crime would go down. It’s that simple.
Now you have Mexico blaming the USA and gun shops for the drug cartels. No mention of the ex police and ex military that join the cartels and bring their weapons with them. Also it’s been said the cartels with their billions of dollars buy military weapons on the open black world market, and buy military weapons from China. Now the Brady group is helping Mexico with the lawsuit. That says a lot when you have a American group helping a foreign country to destroy the 2nd amendment. The Brady group is a traitor to America.
Most of these gun banning groups are run and funded by Micheal Bloomberg, George Soros, the Chinese government, the U.N., Russia and Mexico.
Why is it that back in the 1950’s, a person could walk.into a hardware store, gun shop, or mail order all kinds of firearms with no background checks and no waiting period and crime was much lower than today?
These far lerfist politiicians want even more background checks and more “red flag laws”, and more reasons to deny a person from purchasing a firearm. Some even say if a person got a speeding ticket or a parking ticket that would make them a criminal and they can’t purchase a firearm.
On a survival site, it said that there are more than 2 million laws on the books in America with 50 to 100 or more laws added everyday. It said that a person can’t even drive to work or go grocery shopping without breaking half a dozen laws. So that makes everyone a criminal.
Gun laws are not about stopping criminals. It’s the way of far leftist politiician to enslave all Americans. It’s all about power and control.
AOC and the squad want to repeal the 2nd amendment. He’ll, they want to repeal the US Constitution and Bill of Rights and replace it with something out of Castro and Stalin handbook.
AOC and the squad want to replace the American flag too.
Many of these hunting banning groups are joining up with the gun banning groups. They come up with the idea of banning hunting. If they ban hunting, then why would people need hunting guns?
The number of hunting license has dropped quite a bit. Support hunting, purchase a hunting license, even if you don’t go hunting, buy a “duck stamp” too.
Support and join organization that support the 2nd amendment and hunting and trapping too.
The far leftist politicians not only want to ban firearms, next on their list is knives. In the UK, they banned knives with “pointed blades” and “serrated blades”. In Australia, there’s talk of banning archery equipment, bows and arrows!
It’s not about stopping crime, it’s about “control” over the people . Resistance is futile! You will comply! You will obey your “masters”!
Sopport and protect your right to keep and own all types of firearms and accessories. Don’t let the far leftist politicians to restrict and ban firearms in America.
Background checks equal gun registration equals gun confiscation equals gun control concentration camps in America. Don’t forget the USA had “concentration camps” back during WW2.
JAMES, Correct, however it wasn’t just back in the 1950’s. It wasn’t until 1968 that they put into effect their Communist “Gun Control Act of 1968”. I’m an OLD man and remember very well. When I was 12, I remember walking into our local hardware store and plopping down $20 of my Lawn Mowing money (25 cents a yard) I’d saved up most of the Summer. Walked out with my brand new Savage/Stevens .22LR single shot rifle. NO questions, NO papers & the hardware store owner even threw in a box of shells, here sonny, good squirrel hunting. NOWADAYS=HA! 12 yrs. old=NEVER.
Older & there is that ever present 4473 to fill out and put you on their easy to trace list. HERTER’S was a great company back then and had a catalog of about everything & the size of a SEARS & ROBUCK. Great European Rifles & Handguns, all delivered right to your door no questions ask.
THEN, 1968 and our entire country changed & I think Crime has risen ever since. Here I am now, to old to run & can barely walk “with a cane” & I’m afraid were heading towards I guess what you could call a much needed Revolution. Oh how I wish I were younger.
Concentration Camps! I saw a very large area up in Indianapolis, IN (SW Side) that was fully enclosed with a tall chain link fence. Railroad track running through it where boxcars could be Loaded or Unloaded. NOW the clincher. At the top of that tall chain link fence, the Razor Wire holders were angled INWARD instead of Outward. THAT is to keep people “IN” not Out! Yet the people drive by every day & don’t think a thing about it, I don’t think they even notice & few have the brains left to Think & Reason with, their Smart Phones tell them everything. Reminds me of the Old Movie “Red Dawn”. Remember where the boys found their Dad? Later to watch him lined up with a bunch of others & machine gunned down. Hmmm, makes me want to watch that Old Movie again if I can find it. BTW: I read an article interviewing John Millenius (SP?) and asking him what his thoughts on the Soviet Union were when he wrote that movie. John replied, I wrote that movie about the United States Government, NOT the Soviet Union! I wish the young generation would Pay Attention to what’s happening instead of just spending most of their waking moments Playing on their Smart Phones that “OWN Them instead of Them Owning the phones”. Ya, I wish I were young again also but “The Clock of Life is Wound but Once” & mine is about wound down 🙁
I guess “IT” didn’t like my reply James. Must have said something wrong.
Under Biden we’re headed in the same direction and it’s looking like that we’re going to lose all of our constitutional rights by the far left under his presidency.He is pushing for more gun control laws and he’s only been in there for less than a year.
Actually if the Supreme Court was any good there would be NO GUN LAWS! Because the Second Amendment says that the right to bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! And until they change those words, every gun law is unconstitutional!
A parallel Society is what’s needed. These Mandates, for all their crap, only have effect if you let them take hold of you. People in every profession should be organizing to do just that. Hospitals and Medical Clinics should open by Doctors, Nurses, X-Ray Techs and other Support Staff that refuse the vaccine. Doctors should open Medical Schools to begin teaching the next generation of Medical Students. Tool and Die workers should be opening their own Foundries. Truckers should only deliver to those with their heads on straight. Already we are seeing the effects of a loss of Truck Drivers, with the shortages all across the Country. What if the Farmers and Ranchers, which are predominately Conservative, refused to sell their produce, dairy, and meat to Communist, Liberal-Democrap Cities, and Counties? Take into account that even in the Bluest of States, there exists a large Minority of Conservative-Republican Voters who need to be supported. They help the Red States extend their reach across the Country. While doing these things, we should abolish the Public School System in our areas, placing our children in Church School, or Private Schools, or choosing to Home School our children, perhaps with other parents that feel as we do. The savings from the Taxes due to their bloated Public School budget will be a tremendous windfall for all Citizens who pay taxes, who will now realize just how much more money they have in their Bank accounts, because of the closing of all Public Schools. We can say good-bye to 9 1/2 months of work, with multiple days, or weeks off, during the School year, along with overpriced yearly salaries for less than a year’s worth of work. Add to this the extensive Medical, Dental, and Vision plans that these supposed Teachers get, and it’s no wonder the average Citizen doesn’t have any money in their pocket, right now. I say enough, already. If you have had enough of all the dog piles being tossed your way, then start making demands that these Schools be defunded, and also demand a refund for those Salaries for Teachers, Administrators, Janitorial Staff, Security Personnel, Librarians, and Cafeteria workers who were fired because they did not want to take the Experimental Vaccine. A quick refund Dividend should be coming our way.
I am looking for some 30 cal carbine 110 gr. Our local stores can not seem to get any. Can you help?
