Two Anniversaries Gun Control Supporters Aren't Celebrating

Gun control supporters have lately used the 20th anniversary of Bill Clinton's signing of the Brady Act into law as an excuse to repeat their demand for "universal" background checks. Even though most people who commit crimes with guns defeat the Brady Act by getting their guns by theft, on the black market, or from straw purchasers, anti-gunners have portrayed the law as having saved countless lives.

Nevertheless, the gun ban movement is altogether ignoring two other significant anniversaries associated with its efforts.

"They" are dismissive of such things because they really "don't count". Facts? We don't need no steenkin' facts.

Remember just 10 years ago the hysteria from the gun banners about how there would be “blood in the streets” if the AWB was allowed to lapse. Never happened.

Anti-gun nazis cite lives saved by the Brady Act, which is to say they celebrate crimes not committed. How do they identify or count things not done, prove a negative? This is part of the bankruptcy of gun-control thinking.

A little anecdote that shows an armed society is a polite society. About 20 yrs ago I lived near the town of Chester, NY. NYC took over an old vocational school there that they used as a homeless shelter. Their have been a rash of break-ins, muggings, assaults, etc. all stemming from this shelter. In what was either shrewdness or cluelessness, one of the town councilmen, when interviewed by the local paper about this situation remarked that he was “shocked and concerned” about the sudden surge in concealed carry permits being submitted to the Orange Cty Sheriff’s Office. Even though obtaining a CC permit in NY is less likely than the Jets making it to the Super Bowl, sure enough the crime rate in Chester plummeted overnight and eventually, Mayor Giuliani wisely shut down this shelter.

This is why a GOP Congress is so critical. Slice by slice it can undo all of this overreach in our liberties and I don’t just mean gun control.
