I posted this 3 weeks ago but suddenly it has gone viral with a vengeance, so I am reposting it. Enjoy.
Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy has just released a study of the relative effects of stringent gun laws. They found that a country like Luxenbourg, which bans all guns has a murder rate that is 9 times higher than Germany, where there are 30,000 guns per 100,000 people. They also cited a study by the U.S.National Academy of Sciences, which studied 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publications, and it failed to find one gun control initiative that worked.
In fact, in many cases it found that violence is very often lower, where guns are more readily available. The report points to a myth that guns are more easily obtained in the United States than in Europe. That is factually incorrect.

I call that blackmail and that is an arrestable offense as blackmail encompasses more than just the extortion of money, it also means to try and force or coerce someone into a particular action or to force someone to make a particular statement.
And that’s just what Jackson is doing by demanding that Florida repeal ‘Stand Your Ground’ or else…he’s blackmailing the state…just wonder if he’ll pull this blackmail on the other 22 states that have some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ in place. Continue reading →
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tore into Barack Obama while appearing on The O’Reilly Factor Wednesday, saying that the president doesn’t “have the guts” to tell America he doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
“I actually believe the president doesn’t have the guts to admit he doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment although he states that he is,” Rubio said.
