The Armed Citizen: Fight Crime by Fighting Back

Here is a video that was released long before the Navy Yard shooting this week. Considering the Gun Control advocates love to create emotional videos as propaganda for their misguided causes – this video certainly provides an adequate response in-kind.

Now - let's take into consideration that it was President Clinton (a Democrat) who put into affect a new law that banned loaded guns on military bases; and now you get Fort Hood and the DC Navy Yard massacres.

Is it safe to think that military personnel; who are trained to use these weapons professionally – if they had been allowed by law to carry their loaded sidearm; would have been able to put down the crazy shooters before so many people were shot and killed? The common sense answer is yes. Unfortunately it is quite clear that the Gun-Grabbers lack any common sense.

According to new crime statistics released this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Chicago had more homicides in 2012 than any other city in the country. There were 500 murders in Chicago last year, the FBI said, surpassing New York City, which had 419.

The fact that most of the killings happen on the south side of Chicago; the very place where President Obama developed his political career from; comes with amazing irony. This is a city where it is next to impossible to legally possess a handgun or other guns – and despite all the regulations limiting or denying gun ownership that were designed to eliminate gun violence – they have the highest rate of gun murders and gun violence in the nation.

You would think that very fact alone would be enough to stop Gun Control Advocates in their tracks; to pause and re-think their positions and ideas. Yet no – they will use the Navy Yard shooting this week; to press even harder.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said “a mass shooting at a South Side park shows why assault weapons should be banned”… "It's a miracle there has been no fatality," he said. "Illegal guns, illegal guns, illegal guns drive violence."

FYI - Superintendent Garry McCarthy – guns are not violent and guns don’t kill people. People kill people – more to the point; violent people with guns kill people, and violent people do not obey laws – so they do not pay attention to your laws that ban guns or assault weapons.

It seems Superintendent Garry McCarthy seemed to have conveniently forgotten that the guns and assault weapons used to commit crimes in South Side Chicago are ALREADY BANNED! Ooops!

In fact Superintendent Garry McCarthy – a vast majority of law enforcement professionals disagree with you.

In March, PoliceOne conducted the most comprehensive survey ever of American law enforcement officers’ opinions on the topic gripping the nation's attention in recent weeks: gun control.

Totaling just shy of 30 questions, the survey allowed officers across the United States to share their perspectives on issues spanning from gun control and gun violence to gun rights.

The results do not back up Superintendent Garry McCarthy “professional opinion”. Again – Ooops!

More than 15,000 verified law enforcement professionals took part in the survey, which aimed to bring together the thoughts and opinions of the only professional group devoted to limiting and defeating gun violence as part of their sworn responsibility.
