Who does gun control actually disarm?

Mr. Mark Robinson made a very powerful statement before the Greensboro City Council. He was reacting to the Greensboro, NC Mayor’s proposal to stop hosting gun shows at the Greensboro Coliseum. Mr. Robinson talked about who is disarmed by gun control laws.

A machine gun that “it’s nearly impossible to prevent its production”

Gun control advocates don’t seem to realize how gun control laws primarily prevent law-abiding citizens, not criminals from getting guns.  It isn’t just an issue of smuggling guns.  It is also a question of being able to produce them, even machine guns.  Israel can’t stop domestic terrorists from making their own machine guns.

CPRC puts in Amicus brief in 9th Circuit case fighting to end California’s 10-day waiting period for those who already own guns


In response to claims made before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the CPRC has pointed to that there is no evidence showing that background checks or waiting periods reduce any type of violent crime or total suicides. The case before the court is more specific than that because the claim is that there is a benefit to a 10-day waiting period for those who already lawfully possess a firearm as confirmed in the Automated Firearms System, possess a valid Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) license, or who possess a valid Certificate of Eligibility (COE).…

In little noticed change, Obama administration collecting data on race, ethnicity of gun buyers

From the Washington Times:

With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white.

On the one-year anniversary of the Navy Yard shooting, President Obama “called on Americans to renew the push for gun-control legislation”:

“One year ago, 12 Americans went to work to protect and strengthen the country they loved,” Obama said. “Today, we must do the same — rejecting atrocities like these as the new normal and renewing our call for common-sense reforms that respect our traditions while reducing the gun violence that shatters too many American families every day.” .
