SULLUM: 'We must act now' is not a gun control policy :: 06/08/2019

If you are the sort of person who feels compelled to demand new gun control laws after a mass shooting, you have several options. You can keep your recommendations vague, letting your audience fill in the blanks; push the policies you always push, regardless of whether they have anything to do with the latest outrage; or latch onto a detail of that crime, inflating its importance to support a seemingly germane solution.


ABC News Admits Gun Laws Wouldn't Necessarily Stop Mass Shootings :: 06/07/2019

Anti-gun activists always kick it into high gear in the aftermath of a mass shooting. Their response is downright ghoulish in how they ignore the horrors of what happened so that they can get a jump on scoring political points. Most of the time, even a witless fool could see that the measures they’re proposing would have no impact on the shootings, but still, they persist.

John Lott: After Virginia Beach shooting, Dems seek ban on 'silencers' that don't make guns silent :: 06/07/2019

Why Gun Ownership Rates Tell Us Little About Homicide Trends in America :: 06/07/2019

Every time a homicide committed with a firearm makes the national news, it happens like clockwork: a variety of pundits in the corporate media quickly pen columns advocating for ever broader and stricter gun control laws. If only government agents were entrusted with a strict monopoly (or near-monopoly) on firearm ownership — we are told — then the United States would have much lower homicide rates similar to those found in most other so-called "developed" countries like Norway or Canada.


Why Magazine Restrictions Are Useless For Preventing Mass Shootings :: 06/07/2019

In the wake of any number of mass shootings, from Virginia Beach to Sandy Hook, there tends to be a call for magazine restrictions by those so inclined to push for gun control. Their thinking apparently is that if you restrict the number of rounds in the weapon, you can mitigate the amount of carnage at these shootings.


ATF: 1.3 Million Silencers in U.S. Rarely Used in Crimes :: 06/06/2019

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) released statistics to the Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday showing that the nearly 1.3 million silencers registered in the United States are rarely used in crimes.

Rep Jerry Nadler Illustrates Standard Anti-Gun Stupidity Following Virginia Beach Shooting :: 06/05/2019

Anti-gun politicians have a standard script they tend to follow in the wake of a mass shooting. It seems that no matter what gun control bill they’re advancing, that is the key to averting the mass shooting. It doesn’t matter if the killer used a handgun, and the bill in question only impacts AR-15s, the bill is the answer.


Trump Willing To Consider Suppressor Ban :: 06/05/2019

Virginia Beach Killer Reportedly Violent With Coworkers :: 06/05/2019

In covering mass shootings over the last couple of years, I’ve noticed one thing that seems to be a common thread among most of the killers. They tend to be abusive jackwagons. Take the Parkland killer, for example. Law enforcement had visited his home more than 40 times prior to his rampage but took no action.
