Korwin: Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies – Not!

Alan Korwin, visit his website GunLaws.com.

The lamestream media told you:

Science News — Erika Engelhaupt — “Despite a public debate that grows more fractious with every school shooting, Americans actually agree on gun policy to a surprising extent. According to a survey of more than 2,100 people, majorities of both gun owners and nonowners support 15 potential gun restrictions or regulations, researchers report online May 17 in the American Journal of Public Health.”

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Science News, a once respectable digest of important developments in scientific discovery, has abandoned even the pretense of neutrality or science, with a new report on firearms based solely on the nation’s leading gun-control advocates. “Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies” cites David Hemenway, described as “an expert on violence prevention who was not involved in the study.” This individual is widely recognized as one of the leading anti-gun-rights proponents in the nation, supported and quoted by gun-control groups, whose work finds no redeeming values to gun ownership.

The study itself comes from the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, an agenda-driven organization created in 1995 and funded primarily with a $50 million endowment from Michael Bloomberg (and joined by other left-leaning funders) for the expressed purpose of developing gun-control policy positions. Asking this source for data, and Hemenway to provide credibility is like asking the Flat Earth Society for maps.

The Hopkins Center, since its creation, has issued a steady flood of papers discovering a single finding — guns are bad, cause harm, serve no valid purpose, and should be regulated, banned, controlled, and gun owners are basically a detriment to society. No valuable purpose to firearms or their role in society appears in any output from the Center, which dominates page after page in Google searches. Its single-minded results alone should prompt any reasonable scientist to question its findings, since firearms are clearly involved in peace-keeping internationally, stopping crime domestically, saving lives, and even if only in police hands, they serve a valuable civic function. Three consecutive years of credible research from the federal Centers for Disease Control shows private firearms prevent 2.5 million crimes annually.

While the Science News report claims gun owners and non-owners alike overwhelmingly support background checks, the actual survey was not described. As readers of Page Nine are aware, background checks have no effect on the main areas of mass murder that motivate the ill-informed public to seek them — sociopathic children who seek to mass murder their classmates, Muslim jihadis waging war on Americans, inner-city gangs fully armed and committing 6,000 unsolved murders annually after two decades of background checks, and the recording of 12 million innocent Americans names yearly, in the false name of stopping crime.

Perhaps worst is the little-known fact that, after vicious criminals are identified during checks, trying to buy guns at known locations with the FBI on the phone, and having provided their names and contact info on signed forms (which itself is felony perjury), they are simply sent away, with their money. Whether Americans actually agree on that, as Hemenway, the Hopkins Center and Science News report is true, was unclear at press time, like the other highly controversial facts about background checks.

Setting the denied persons free might not be too terribly bad, since the denials are conducted by low-level computer clerks sitting in offices in West Virginia. The checks remove fundamental constitutional rights people should have without trials, due process or representation, and according to expert Dr. John Lott, false positives in the system exceed 90%. That’s proven out by the almost total lack of convictions, or even court cases, for the supposed criminals denied their rights in stores, another point Americans might not agree upon in the high numbers Science News unequivocally declares. No effort to reach Science News was made, since they have been unresponsive in the past, and the story is so hopelessly prejudicial.

Editor Nancy Shute, writer Erika Engelhaupt and Science News are of course welcome to respond, answer any of the claims made in this article and provide any evidence refuting this piece, or run an article in their publication addressing these points, which would be standard in similar cases. According to leading experts, that will not occur.

    I took a oath to defend the Constitution from Foreign and domestic enemies. I gave my youth to upholding my oath, from 1967 to 1991 USAF. Civil Service 1992 to 1995 USN. I will not give up my rights to gun control. the type and amount of guns i can have is not specified, so as many and all types i can have with no interference from anyone or anything. One other thing i have found your President is a traitor to this country., Democracy and The Constitution is at stake, by Trump, Putin and Kim. My Oath for a retiree is still in force, i will still uphold the Oath. Trump and his Russian Gutter Rats will not destroy Our Democracy and The Constitution, I will give my life for my kids the live free of Nazism

      Well it appears as though you’re pretty much self-conflicted.

      Trump has, time and again, stated his support for the second and has one Pro 2A justice confirmed to the SCOTUS. There’s soon to be another. To most intelligent, rational folks, it sure looks like he’s backing his Pro 2A claims with action.

      Your assertions that Trump is the enemy of America and the constitution are ringing pretty hollow.

      Would you have preferred Hilary, who took a $145 million dollar bribe from the Russians in order to allow their access to our uranium?

      Do you actually still believe in the Steele report that has been debunked as nothing more than a campaign stunt by Hilary, and the DNC?

      It’s looking like your answer is a resounding “Yes”.

    Bloomberg other than having money who’s he? NOBODY! He has no more right to tell anyone what to do including the new world order that they want. My right to carry is the 2nd amendment. Mess with it the 2nd coming will stop confiscation. Seems people forgot 1776!!

    The MEDIA is the 4th branch of govt.
    Understand that.

  • Mr. Sparkles August 3, 2018, 10:01 am

    Appropriate article but unfortunately the folks who need to see/hear this message will not as they turn off their radios, close the magazine or website and generally shrill any time something is offered that provides facts that refute their ill informed opinions.

    In the end, it doesn’t matter what someone’s personal opinion is on my constitutional rights. I will decide to exercise them at my discretion

    • JoeUSooner August 4, 2018, 12:37 am

      Excellent point!!

      All civil rights (including gun ownership and self-defense) are indeed natural and inherent.

      I – and I alone – will determine exactly when and how I exercise those rights (as every individual citizen certainly should)…

    The whole point of “gun control” is Control period! Always has been always will be! The USA is the true last vestige of freedom in the world, if they can bring us down with the flood of illegals and other cultures to weaken our own to the point of total divisiveness we are done!

  • Wayne R Cook August 3, 2018, 6:23 am

    Bloomberg simply despises gun owners. Yet he employs armed guards for his personal “safety”. The truth of it is, the entirety of the gun control mantra is just that. The left is attempting to control the globe and the only way they can is to disarm us. Look at videos of Antifa shot recently and you’ll see that they illegally procure arms to intimidate and wound all who disagree with them. Point is, the ostensibly anti-violent group promotes violence for the same reasons that Communists have done for the last 100 years. POWER.
