Crazies with Guns

Gun-Crazy-1949-Cd-Cover-37413There has been a lot of talk about preventing gun violence and finding ways stop “crazy people” from getting guns and shooting up theaters, malls, schools and churches. The problem with this is that none of the people who have committed mass murders are really crazy. A “crazy” person is a person who does not know what they are doing and does not understand the consequences of their actions. An example of a truly crazy person would be someone who is continually stabbing themselves with a pencil and not comprehending  that this action is harming them. The people who commit mass-murders go to great lengths to plan and execute their actions. They are fully aware of what results their action will yield.  These are people who are fully capable of hiding their intentions and blending into society. A mental check would fail to diagnose them as insane because they are not.

The Case Against Expanded Background Checks

Expanded background checks will be abused.

First instance of abuse is where the background checks are used to create in illegal national gun registry.

In  Pennsylvania it is  illegal to have a gun registry… yet one exists !!!!
In PA the argument for the registry is that it is really not a registry because it is not 100 % complete, because it only includes new gun purchases. This violates the intent of the law.

Illegal registries already exist out of the abuse of background checks. Government breaks the law without penalty. They find tricks to get around the laws.

The meaning of the phrase “well-regulated” in the 2nd amendment

From: Brian T. Halonen <halonen@csd.uwm.edu>

The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment:

1709: “If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations.”

1714: “The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world.”

1812: “The equation of time … is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial.”

1848: “A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor.”

1862: “It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding.”

Firearms are not evil!

As a very active person for the advancement and education of gun rights in the United States and more specifically in Pennsylvania, I’m usually up against the baseless facts that the anti-gun organizations such as: The Brady Campaign, CeaseFire, Mayors Against Illegal Guns & Moms Against Illegal Guns spew out.  I say these facts are baseless because they’re usually facts for criminals, not law abiding citizens.   In fact, there are more deaths as a result of car accidents and by medical mistakes than by firearms, but this is something they don’t want you to know about.
