On November 7, 1938 Hitler arranged a shooting – which he blamed on the Jews.
Five days later Hitler used the shooting as justification to take away the Jews guns, and six days later the Holocaust started. “Never create a good crisis and let it go to waste”

This arranged shooting became the instant excuse for gun control.
Obama believes that civilians should not own guns.
He did it for the children.
Despite all the buzz, how many guns have been actually taken from citizens? When the police come around trying to confiscate your gun, that will be the time to worry. In the meantime, it will never happen. This is all just a feel good PR show on the part of liberals. Nothing meaningful is ever going to come from it, except for maybe tighter background checks, which is something most everyone more or less agrees is the right thing to do.
New York passed a gun confiscation law this week.
“Despite all the buzz, how many guns have been actually taken from citizens?”
Us citizens, or Australian citizens?
New York will be confiscating tens of thousands of guns.
I don’t guess they will be offering those for resale in the flyover states.
More likely Holder will be sending them straight to Mexican drug lords.
Look at Switzerland, virtually everyone has a gun, and they have the lowest gun crime in the world, or something like that, that’s what I heard. More guns mean less gun crime, that’s the surprising correlation that probably holds up in most places. So gun bans make no sense at all. Look at Chicago.
Protected in the constitution, guns that give us protection from violent thugs and home invaders are the great equalizer for women and the elderly and everyone. And indeed there is also the element of possible protection from a government that departs from the constitution and begins a tyranny.
Hey America is now a third world country . So don’t be surprised by the stupidity of the leadership . They might try anything , who knows ? One hundred years ago the leadership implemented the biggest theft of all time by bringing into law the federal reserve act , and then implementing the income tax so they would be sure of having plenty of money to steal . So don’t be surprised if they actually try taking your weapons as they are that stupid . And it will be a blood bath if they do .
When the unconstitutional conservative Drug War on its own citizens fuels urban gangs with billions of dollars a year in incentives to pursue criminal careers, urban voters then have the immediately practical incentive to disarm gangs using police state tactics, constitution indeed be damned right back. That Prohibition required a full constitutional amendment is a hint that the pursuit of happiness and something called liberty used to mean exactly what they say. The plank in your own eye you just ignore!
Before the 1996 gun laws, this type of thing was exceedingly rare in Australia. Now it’s every other day.
number of americans killed 2002-2011 by domestic terrorist attacks: 30
number of americans murdered by guns 3003-2011: 115,997
so who should i be more afraid of terrorists, or all my bat-shit crazy fellow citizens running around carrying all theses guns which are supposed to, so the argument goes, make me safer?
Number of Americans killed by cars since 2003 – 380,000 and millions of others severely injured. You should be terrified of cars and they should be banned.
The vast majority of the murders you refer to were by minority gangs with illegal guns. Taking legal guns away from law abiding citizens is an idea for morons.
there is a difference between something called accidents and intentional murder.
oh, btw, have you ever done any ‘real science,’ or ever had anything published in the peer reviewed scientific literature? or are you just a rent seeker who fucks around with other people’s data and then has he balls to call them shit heads?
The difference is that I have been hit by cars on my bicycle several times and have close calls every week, but have never been in any danger from a gun. Almost everyone has been in a car accident.
Have you ever done any real thinking, or are you just a mindless liberal stooge?
sorry to hear about your accidents. hope they weren’t aiming at you and doing it on purpose.
Have you ever done any real scientific thinking and work, ever designed and run an experiment, taken and analyzed data, had it reviewed and published, or are you just a mindless conservative stooge?
I am a very accomplished scientist and engineer, thanks. Why don’t you look at the data I am presenting instead of focusing on me?
348944, for the same period and I’m guessing you can figure by what.
white on white gun deaths 2002 -2009, 46,000 guess whites are getting to be a minority in this country, too bad for the GOP (guns over people) probably why so many bat shit crazy white racists in the south think they need guns for protection. gotta watch out for those you know who.
You mean where the crime rates are low?
Pat, You are stuck in the 1960s. It appears that the last 50 years passed you by.
I’m one of those minority white, southern, conservative, gop, gun owning citizens you obviously respect and admire. Who the hell do you think you are and what could possibly lead you to believe that any opinion you have may be any more valid or valuable than any other citizen?
There are devices of my design, development and test in orbit around three planets, my passport is just as tattered as yours might be and I would gladly accept an invitation from you for a game of pool, poker, chess or (probably just about anything else) at any stakes you may wish. You can’t lose – all southerners are idiots!
gotta watch out for those you know who.
Would that be crazies and or criminals thar PatN?
Hey Pat, come try to rob me or harm one of my family , you’re gonna wish to God that I would have just shot you instead. See, I am preparing for the taking of my second ammendment right, and I gotta tell ya, my creativity has been working overtime. I have been devising all sorts of new and nasty ways of killing assailants, and most are far more brutal and disturbing than simply being shot. Bring it on…. I’m plenty ready!

white on white gun deaths 2002 -2009, 46,000
Provide a link to your stats. In 2009 there were about 5,200 whites that committed murder. Of those about 67% were by firearms, or about 3,500. white muderers using firearms. I do not think all white murders only killed other whites, but assuming this as an average over seven years this is about 24,000, no where near your 46000. I do not know if this includes suicides. http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/documents/expandhomicidemain.pdf
PatN, you are batshit stupid.
