Gun Facts version 5.0 is now available
Gun Facts ^ | 6/23/2008 | Guy Smith

Gun Facts version 5.0 is now available

A new version of Gun Facts is now available, both as a free e-book and as a printed version.

Gun Facts debunks all common gun control myths. Organized by gun control myths and with over 480 detailed citations, firearm policy wonks can rapidly refute the Brady Campaign, the Violence Policy Center, the Legal Community Against Violence, and other cauldrons of canards.

Gun Facts 5.0 has 94 packed pages of information. Gun Facts is grouped into chapters on common gun control topics (assault weapons, ballistic finger printing, firearm availability, international, etc.) which make finding usable information quick and easy. The detailed table of contents reduces searching, and being an e-book, Gun Facts can be keyword searched as well.

Each chapter lists common gun control myths, and for each myth lists a number of documented and cited facts (with over 480 detailed footnotes from highly credible sources) that directly dispute the gun control claim. Thus when a neighbor, editor or politician repeats some slogan propagated by the gun control industry, you can quickly find that myth then rebuke with real information. Beware -- this tends to tick them off.

The Heller v. D.C. gun ban case may send us into decades of lower-court debates over “reasonable regulation” of firearm ownership. Gun Facts will continue to be updated and published to give you the ammo you need to continue defending the rights of all people around the world.

Bookmark these maps because they show where the majority of violent homicides in the US are originating from.

_______________________________________________________________

These maps are from the article titled "Anti-gun Promo Blackfires"

I think perhaps it should have been entitled, "The African Americans are slaughtering each other in our US Cities"

Baltimore, PROPER, which is reflected on the map has 64.34% Black or African American, 31.63% White.

_______________________________________________________________

This Baltimore Sun map shows a terrible problem, but does not clarify who the murderers are.

Baltimore Sun map of PEOPLE murdered, 2007:

_______________________________________________________________

Baltimore Sun map of BLACKS murdered, 2007: (264)

_______________________________________________________________

Baltimore Sun map of WHITES murdered, 2007: (12)

Of the 12, 6 were killed *downtown* probably while buying drugs. _______________________________________________________________

That's right a small percentage of people, generally gangs and drug dealers, in our large cities are causing the majority of the gun related homicides in the US. Do not allow this data to be covered up or hidden. Do not allow the gun control nutcases to take away your self defense weapons.

Baltimore, PROPER, Population 651,154
Baltimore, greater metropolitan area, Population 5.1 Million

Thanks, this is a keeper. I’ve bookmarked it.

Let’s all pass out copies of this to all our noble, but misinformed “liberal” friends. It’ll put their panties in a twist.

Gun deaths = red, stabbings = black, blunt force trauma = green. Helps with the interpretation.

Looks like I'm going to have to update my banglist reminder.

Shooters, please spread this document far and wide, and study it closely -- we're going to be using it a lot in the coming years, I'm afraid...

Fact: The rifle used in the Martin Luther King assassination was test fired 18 times under court supervision, and the results showed that no two bullets were marked alike.13 “Every test bullet was different because it was going over plating created by the previous bullet.”

A little additional info: The rifle was practically NEW when it supposedly fired the shot that killed MLK, having fired at the most half a dozen cartridges to zero it in. Years after the assassination, in the late 90's, a group sued to have the rifle's ballistics retested. Even 30 years later with much improved scientific methods including computer enhancements, the results came back "Inconclusive".

Myth: Nobody needs an assault weapon.

Fact: Recall the Rodney King riots in that anti-gun city of Los Angeles. Every major news network carried footage of Korean storeowners sitting on the roofs of their stores, armed with “assault weapons”.61 Those were the stores that did not get burned to the ground, and those were the people that were not dragged into the street and beaten by rioters. "

Does anyone have any of these pictures. I seem to recall shotguns and standard hunting rifles being in the hands of the Koreans.

Does anyone have any of these pictures. I seem to recall shotguns and standard hunting rifles being in the hands of the Koreans.

A video of a Korean shop owner firing from the roof of his business was shown on the MSM.

The one I saw was taken from above and to the right of the shop owner.

He was using a bolt action rifle (rapidly working the bolt without removing the rifle from his shoulder). He was sending bullets down range in a hurry.

The video did not show his targets, but I remember thinking I would not want to be on the receiving end of his fire.

The commentary was that his was the only store not burned or destroyed in that block.

YouTube or others may have that video.

Using Goggle, Yahoo Search, Wikipedia or other search engines might even give his name and other information that would help find that or other videos.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thanks. I have already seen it. I can’t find the Koreans using ‘assault’ rifles though.

You’d expect an SKS or two given their low cost and availablilty of ammo (.223), also pre-democrat ban.

Edward Song Lee

TIME: 9:50 p.m. LOCATION: Near corner of Third Street and Hobart Boulevard, Wilshire District

Lee, 18, a Korean-American living with his mom in the Wilshire District, was out with three friends when they got into a fight with another group of Koreans. Police responded to the gunfight and exchanged fire with both groups. Lee suffered two fatal hits to the chest as he sat in the front seat of a car. Someone in the rival group shot him. Detectives later learned the gun battle was a tragic mistake. Each group had been protecting Korean-owned stores and mistook the other for looters. Police made an arrest; no charges filed.

I thought I saw the AR15s and such after the call went out on Korean Radio for folks to defend the stores....I know there was a market that piled up ricebags outside, and the footage was at night.

Nice graphics of Baltimore crime stats. Did you read the Alantic.com article on Tennessee, crime, and section 8 that was posted a couple of days ago? Revealing.

Gun Talk sounds good, although I don't listen to talk radio, myself.

I'd suggest that you start a thread on it and flag it with the "banglist" keyword, but not too many folks are around here on Sunday afternoon...
