GUN FACTS 3.3 NOW AVAILABLE!
Gun Facts website ^ | 6/27/2003 | Guy Smith

GUN FACTS 3.3 IS NOW AVAILABLE!

Fresh off the presses (so to speak)!

Sick and tired of all the lies and distortions that the anti-gun liberal media continues to parrot day in and day out? Want the real facts and statistics to refute all of the ridiculous claims of the gun-grabbers? Well look no further.

Gun Facts version 3.3 is now ready and available for download. Guy Smith, firearms-rights activist and researcher extraordinaire has just revised his 70-page reference guide to include more data on "assault weapons", as well as few other hot topics. He has also corrected/expanded a few cites.

The URL (easy to remember and tell friends and reporters about) is: http://www.GunFacts.info

This document requires Adobe Acrobat software in order to view/print it, and Guy has a link for that as well at the bottom of the page.

Tell your friends and fellow shooters: READ IT, LEARN IT, PASS IT AROUND. Knowledge is power, and the rights you save will be your own.

I also put a copy on my website at: http://www.joebrower.com/RKBA/RKBA_FILES/RESEARCH/Gun_Facts_3.3.pdf

Yours in Liberty,

Joe Brower

From Gun Facts 3.3

"Fact: Criminals generally don’t register their weapons."

Joe, did you know that the Supreme Court ruled that registration laws CANNOT be enforced on criminals. The reasoning is that since it is already illegal for them to own guns, making them register their illegally owned guns would violate their Fifth Amendment right against being forced to provide evidence against yourself.

Thus, ONLY LAW ABIDING CITIZENS CAN BE FORCED TO REGISTER THEIR GUNS!

"I think it means 'cover yer six'."

Thanks; I think that's it, too. I guess Squantos ain't gonna tell me -- it's a trade secret. $;-)

"ONLY LAW ABIDING CITIZENS CAN BE FORCED TO REGISTER THEIR GUNS."

A-yep. Crazy. If anyone needed any proof that the inmates are running the legislative asylum, that's it.

So, let's see... if the gummint makes a law declaring that everyone register and I don't, then I'm a criminal. But since criminals are exempted, I'm clean as the driven snow.

Such a deal!

Nicely Done!! I've already printed myself off a copy.

I've just finished reading the Second Ammendment Primer that I bought from the NRA. It gives a great historical perspective to our rights, going back to biblical times.

It makes the point that it is a collective right and an individual right. That the militia is all the people that can rise up to fight a standing army or 'select' militia. And also an indvidual right for defense of home or community.

From the fur trade days, and then abouts, 'topknot' is your scalp - the phrase means watch out for those who would scalp you . . .
Cover your six is fighter pilot term for similar situations - don't let the bad guys get behind you / in your blind or weak spot.

I've never seen the fact sheet before. That's some good reading. I noticed one thing that I would change about it.

Even the most expert long distance shooters cannot hit a stationary target under perfect, windless weather conditions at such distances (with one notable exception in Vietnam43). An ill trained terrorist shooting a high-recoil .50 caliber rifle at a fast moving target – such as a 600 mph airplane – has no chance.

My critique This is a response to downing airliners. Well, airliners don't travel at 600mph when they are flying at only 5,000 feet.

The point is well taken, but I'd correct the itty bitty parts of this argument for legitimacy's sake.

good stuff, sir.

thanks... I have a notion some of those small fliers are going to be left laying around, um, the library, work, etc. and a few will be mailed and emailed. I've got a particular Jewish female lawyer east-coast-transplant state senator <seinfeld> not that that's bad </seinfeld> who is one of the few brazenly antigun legislators here in Utah I'm going to mail it to.

I'll await her response with baited hooks.

ONLY LAW ABIDING CITIZENS CAN BE FORCED TO REGISTER THEIR GUNS

Think about it:

1- Gun banning liberals want to disarm as many people as possible.
2- As you pointed out, criminals won't disarm and can't be forced to.
3- Criminals also want us disarmed. Guns are a hazard to their profession.
4- The government (individuals aside) also wants us disarmed. We are supposed to be dependent.

CONCLUSION: EVERYONE EXCEPT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS CAN KEEP THEIR GUNS

My original resourced goodie folks!

301 Handgun Murders:
DC - 100% gun-banned over 25 years
340,000 population

-V-

300 Handgun Murders:
17 LEGAL Concealed Carry States (combined)
23 MILLION+ population

STATISTICAL SOURCE:

Clinton/Reno/Freeh FBI-DOJ
1999 Uniform Crime Report

MY SOURCE OF ABOVE FBI/DOJ REPORT:

Liberal (D-CT) US Senator Joe Lieberman

(Sandbag the anti-gun libs when they all claim you invented, distorted, or manipulated the numbers, then spring your sources on them! Devasting and unempeachable!)

--- Always use the lefties stats and quotes to make killer points; El Rushbo, Hannity, Elder, and others are using Bill Clinton's 1998 statements about WMD and Iraq now; also most of all of the big Dems, including Kerry, Lieberman, Gephardt, Daschle, etc.

Many of the 9 Dwarves as Yall plainly can see.

Ann Coulter is the very best on this in "Scandal" and her other writings and media appearances.

El Rushbo is too; he has that VAST staff at the Southern Command.

Great posts by all of you!
