Do Studies Show Gun Control Works? No.​

Out of 27,900 research publications on gun laws, only 123 tested their effects rigorously.​

After reaching historic lows in the mid-2010s, gun violence rates in America have gone up in recent years, and they remain higher than in some other parts of the developed world. There are hundreds of laws and regulations at the federal and state level that restrict Americans' access to guns, yet according to some advocates, social science research shows that a few more "simple, commonsense" laws could significantly reduce the number of injuries and deaths attributed to firearms.

Republicans can't resolve the problem in the Senate fast enough. Hopefully Senator Manchin's constituents can be our saviors once again if ever such legislation comes through the House.

Come on November!

I am opposed to self-defense’ – Macron says farmer had no right to kill a burglar who broke into his home​

Despite France seeing a drastic increase in crime and murder, Emmanuel Macron said he believes that people do not have the right to defend themselves

After a farmer shot a man who broke into his home, French President Emmanuel Macron said the French people do not have the right to self-defense, and the man should have instead let the police handle the incident.
Macron made his controversial remarks on Europe 1 news channel while broadcasting in Fourras, France, after learning of the news that a 35-year-old man from Longré, in the north of Charente, was indicted for murder after fatally shooting a 40-year-old man who broke into his home last Friday.
According to the initial investigation, the farmer fired twice with a large caliber rifle at a group of four burglars, killing one of them. The self-defense shooting took place last Friday, between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., and the man was alone with his 3-year-old daughter at the time.

As far as I'm concerned be wary of war. War can break out anywhere at any time, and I don't mean Ukraine, I mean, there's an enemy among you suddenly. Not war writ large, but war writ small. Could be a bear or a pack of coyotes too.

Your carry gun is the first line of defense if you need a weapon. This gun should be useful for you to get to a better (bigger) gun if you need one, sometimes you can't stand your ground with your carry gun. Have a back-up gun for your carry gun if possible, have back-up magazines, or have at least one back-up mag, but most important: carry a gun.

If "Ukraine" ever happens, then you'll be much better off with a rifle or carbine (a carbine is a shorter rifle, basically a shorter rifle, basically same thing as a rifle just a shorter barrel) than any handgun, generally. Way longer range.

An AR "assault weapon" is the closest thing to a common gun around here that would be useful in a "Ukraine" situation. Actual military troops have AR-type guns except they can shoot in bursts of bullets, full automatic, no "assault weapon" can do that.

But as Doser has pointed out, check out Mr. Jerry Miculek. What's better than a full-auto rifle is a semiauto with Mr. Miculek on the trigger because he's going to shoot almost as fast, except he's going to bullseye every shot. If you can do that you're way more useful with a gun than just about everybody.

"Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan..."
Justice Clarence Thomas

In June 2020, when the justices spurned a Second Amendment appeal from New Jersey, he wrote, "(I)n several jurisdictions throughout the country, law-abiding citizens have been barred from exercising the fundamental right to bear arms because they cannot show they have a 'justifiable need' or 'good reason' for doing so. One would think that such an onerous burden on a fundamental right would warrant this Court's review. This Court would almost certainly review the constitutionality of a law requiring citizens to establish a justifiable need before exercising their free speech rights. And it seems highly unlikely that the Court would allow a State to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion."

Of the 86 countries where we have identified mass public shootings, the US ranks 56th per capita in its rate of attacks and 61st in mass public shooting murder rate. Norway, Finland, Switzerland and Russia all have at least 45 percent higher rates of murder from mass public shootings than the United States.
