Knife Control in Great Britain?

(from haciendapub.com)
(from haciendapub.com) [Ed: We are reposting Dr. Faria's article showing the extent of the statist, anti-weapons hysteria that has bloomed in the formerly peaceable kingdom. It originally appeared at HaciendaPub.com on March 7.] In a previous article, I described how news articles coming out of BBC News have become so biased and critical not only of President Donald Trump and Republicans but also of our judicial system and crime statistics. The pot I showed was calling the ...

. . . And the Beat Goes On

(from motherjones.com)
(from motherjones.com) [Ed: This is the second part of the article begun Tuesday.] Next, a misleading article claiming  that “Household Gun Ownership and Youth Suicide Rates at the State Level, 2005–2015” in March’s American Journal of Preventive Medicine, from Michael Siegel, MD, MHP of the Boston University School of Public Health. This is another cross-sectional study (no trend analysis) comparing states to each other, examining data in aggregate through that decade. The data come...

The Beat Goes On . . .

(from motherjones.com)
(from motherjones.com) [Ed: DRGO sees lots of “studies” marketed as gun control justification that we don’t have time to report on in detail, though they all should be. Thankfully, they often are reviewed by other Second Amendment advocates. We thought we’d catch up on a few here this week, some having been mentioned on our Facebook timeline, some not, but all worth attention (sometimes repeatedly). The next installment comes Thursday.] “California's comprehensive background check and mis...

Review: ‘#MeToo: Women Who Shot Men in Self-Defense’ by Robert Hodam

(from amazon.com)
(from amazon.com) #MeToo: Women Who Shot Men in Self-Defense is a special book, just out in 2018. Special, not just in being another powerful tool against the prejudice against guns and individual self-defense so common in society, but in its development and focus, too. It’s available on Amazon.com in paperback (in black & white, which makes the charts hard to interpret). It had been available in color paperback for a substantial premium, but doesn’t come up. I’d recommend the full c...

Regarding New Hampshire ERPO Bill HB 687

(from en.wikipedia.org)
(from en.wikipedia.org) [Ed: DRGO was asked for written testimony regarding a badly conceived, intended and written bill that the newly Democrat majority legislature would enact as an Extreme Risk Protection Order law there. This is our response. There will be further action at the NH Senate if (as is likely) it passes today's Committee hearing and then the NH House of Representatives. The present NH Governor also is a Democrat, so stopping it however possible is both crucial and difficult.]...

Firearm Policies That (Don’t) Work

(from rand.org)
(from rand.org) [Ed: Here’s another example of the horrendous “research” we encounter every week. Thanks to DRGO writer Dr. Thomas E. Gift who pointed it out and gave us his read on it, which is incorporated here.] “Firearm Policies That Work” just came out February 25 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The authors are April Zeoli, a new name from the Michigan State University’s School of Criminal Justice and Daniel Webster, an old hand at anti-gun research from the Cent...

The Deacons for Defense and Justice

(from naaga.co)
[Ed: This is the inspiring true story of men who took up arms to defend their families, communities and movement during the 1960's Civil Rights conflicts. It reminds us why firearms must be in the people's hands when authoritarian government would maintain its monopoly of arms. DRGO friend Philip Smith, President of the National African-American Gun Association, originally published this in its latest member newsletter.] The Deacons for Defense and Justice was an armed Afr...

Gun Grabbers Lie to the American People

(from theregister.co.uk)
(from theregister.co.uk) [Ed: This piece is excerpted from a much longer, and well worth reading, seven-part series first published by our colleagues at The Arbalest Quarrel on February 6, 2019.]  Oppressive antigun measures do not promote public safety Removal of guns from society won’t promote public safety. It never has; never will. (See . . .“The Failed Experiment, Gun Control and Public Safet...
