How Obama's Gun 'Order' will Backfire
WND ^ | January 17, 2013 | David Kupelian

Posted on 01/20/2013 11:40:25 AM PST by paratrooper82

Among the 23 “executive actions” President Obama announced yesterday amidst great fanfare (and shameless exploitation of children) is this:

“Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.”

Obama may want to put a hold on that one, until he comes to grips with what happened the last time a U.S. president tried it.

Watch for a big push by the ATF.

Tables of guns confiscated, pressure on gun dealers for “acurate records.”

Times have changed. I expect the CDC to deliver a put-up job. If the EPA can declare CO2 to be a pollutant, then the CDC can do anything it wants.

Across the fruited plain, there are a few who are awake. We were out yesterday. Did you see us Mr. Hussein?

"“As the scholars frankly admitted, they had started out their research as gun-control advocates,” said Kopel, “and had been forced to change their minds by a careful review of the evidence.”"

Bloody unlikely to happen a second time.

Even the IPCC knows that the conclusions need to be promulgated first, followed by the prpoer data manipulations to back the forgone conclusions.

If Obama pushes immigration and gun control nothing will get done because the divide will get even greater, and the absurd thing is that real stuff actually needs done that can improve the economy and reduce debt.

There is what I call a “cabal of interests” in America that want gun control and they want amnesty for illegals and open borders too, and they are a lot more than your typical liberals, and just maybe they really want nothing done. You’ll see some coming out of the woodwork in both Parties.

Sometimes when I post it gets hung for a long time so I have to click the button again. I see double or triple posting here and just figure it happened to them. I don’t think that makes one an idiot.

“When Wright, Rossi and Daly produced their report for the National Institute of Justice, they delivered a document quite different from the one they had expected to write,” explained David Kopel, research director of the Independence Institute and co-author of the law school textbook, “Firearms Law and the Second Amendment.”
“Carefully reviewing all existing research to date, the three scholars found no persuasive scholarly evidence that America’s 20,000 gun-control laws had reduced criminal violence.”

How refreshing to hear about a University research team with the integrity to dismiss preconceived notions and accurately analyze their data!

Somehow I doubt the libs will be making that mistake again.

Watch for 20,000 new ATF employees....Another 500,000 IRS employees for Obamacare and bank account seizures.....

No prison time...just fines...and confiscation.

Remember...if they found pot on your yacht...they could confiscate your yacht.

We're all going to be criminals !!!

[The researchers'] findings, summarized starkly by co-author Wright, were that “Gun control laws do not reduce crime.”

That ain't going to happen again. They will toe the line and find a hockey stick and a penumbra in their research data to conclude that gun ownership causes more crime, family breakups, milk to go bad, AIDS and bitter feelings.

The Left has learned a great deal since this study. To wit: government grants for climate research goes to those who will deliver a report supporting more government involvement and control of all human and economic activity in the interests of “saving the planet”. Those researchers who don’t get it and report honest results don’t get any more money.

I’m certain that the smart folks over at the CDC have been paying attention and no doubt the researchers will be more carefully chosen.

The EPA and CDC have been drawing conclusions and then finding the "science" to prove them for decades. It's nothing new, it is just a bit more blatant now because they have gotten away with it scott free for so long.

The mistake Jimmy Carter made was that he picked an honest tribunal.
We don’t have to worry about that with Obama.

He will find some low lifes at Berkely or elsewhere that will give him what he wants.

Happens to me every time I ping one of my lists even when I don’t get hung up and try again. Just one click, and voila! Two or three dupes. FR is crippled now.

I’m curious about one thing.. There isn’t a letter/statement from each sheriff on the list. How do we know if it’s “real” with no public statement?
