How to Reduce Shootings
New York Times, by Nicholas Kristof

Original Article

Posted By:bemused conservative, 11/7/2017 6:12:08 PM

It has happened yet again: Inevitably, predictably, fatefully, a gunman shot dead 26 people in a Texas church on Sunday. These incidents are peculiarly American tragedies, and what’s particularly heartbreaking is that they aren’t shocking. People all over the world become furious and try to harm others, but only in the United States do we suffer such mass shootings so regularly; only in the U.S. do we lose one person every 15 minutes to gun violence. Two of the deadliest mass shootings in modern American history have occurred in the last six weeks. So let’s not just mourn the dead, let’s

Read the article. By focusing on improving firearm safety and operator training, I really believe it´s possible to reduce the current 30,000 plus firearm deaths by one third across the board within five years. That´s ten thousand lives saved. A firearm is a tool, just like a motor vehicle, and we can and should make them safer. Operators should have the same weapons training LEO´s do. I´m not talking about mass shootings, those are impossible to prevent. Suicides, accidents, everyday homicides--those can be pushed much lower by a motor vehicle approach.

OP- I don´t see how better training could possibly prevent any suicides or murders. Accidental shootings maybe but I had many hours of training as a Marine and LEO and there were still accidental discharges among my peers and I still shudder to think about a fellow marine screwing around with a loaded .45 that would ended me instantly had things gone a little (very little) differently.
I don´t have a problem with background checks but do have a problem with who established the criteria for denial of ownership rights. PTSD, maybe, probably not. Anti anxiety meds for a period of time, not likely. Any number of things could cause a gun grabber in a position of authority to decide a person was unable to safely own a firearm. I heard an idiot on the radio yesterday who stated that no one should be able to own a semi auto pistol or rifle, said anything else was military type weapon and should not be privately owned. He obviously didn´t have a clue about the intent of the 2nd Amendment.

I noticed that according to his charts that New Jersey is an open carry state for hand guns and long guns. It is not. The law in New Jersey when going to and from a gun range a gun must locked in a box, the box in your trunk and the gun cannot be loaded. Open carry? Not in NJ. What else is factually wrong with his story?

Make them safer,OP? They already have two safeties, heavier trigger pulls, etc. The crazy in Texas had all kinds of training, thanks to Uncle Sam. You can´t regulate crazy. My firearms are safe because I control them. And most of the firearms deaths are suicides. The rest are druggies in Chicago. You won´t guilt me into giving up my firearms, I´ve done nothing wrong and neither have all my shooting friends. Try another angle, this one has gotten stale.

Why would most of us need training as a law enforcement officer. I don´t do law enforcement. The only training i need to to safely handle my firearm, which most of us owners have. I am trained as a surgeon. Law enforcement officers should be trained as law enforcement officers. How such nonsense passes as common sense logic escapes me.

So many things to disagree with. Let´s start with the second sentence. Really? The latest shooting isn´t shocking? You are one cold human.

The majority of gun deaths are suicides. Not to give anybody ideas, but there are other ways to do this. So is the concern the death of a fellow human or the tool through which this is accomplished? There´s a slippery slope for you.

Murders are, by definition, crimes committed by criminals. Criminals flaunt law. Will they suddenly obey gun laws?

I don´t want guns in the hands of lunatics, but I don´t want to see someone who suffers a brief depression forever stigmatized and I really don´t want to see someone who shows up on a "watch list" who is not convicted of a crime penalized.

Nice try, Kristof. But, people don´t get into a car for the purpose of using it as a weapon. Understand that if a car driver may kill, it is more random due to inattention, carelessness, or a dumb mistake.

"How to Reduce Shootings"?

Find out how and why already unstable Americans are further being influenced to kill. As suggested the other day - could it be due to the chronic over-exposure to media political negativity and hate that is spewed each and every day in the msm and internet? Is it due to increasing personal pressures to get buy in this world and then envy becomes the emotional wedge that changes people?

The author uses the twisted logic and misleading statistics you would expect in the New York times. For example he tries to refute the argument for the defensive use of firearms by claiming only 259 justifiable homicides in a year, conveniently ignoring the estimated 800,000 to 2 MILLION other defensive uses of firearms.

And auto regulation is NOT a model for gun regulation for the very simple reason that there is no right to have a car in the Constitution. Liberals love to overlook the Constitution when coming up with their cockamamie schemes.

It has happened yet again: Inevitably, predictably, fatefully, a gunman shot dead 26 people... blah, blah, blah...

Predictably? Is he serious? The PROBLEM is that these incidents are so totally unpredictable!

Also, this is a case study in using "statistics" to sell a bill of goods.

Consider that he starts with "gun MURDERS per 100,000 people" to show how bad we are as a country. But then, conveniently, when he´s "grading" the states to show how effective strict gun laws are, he conveniently switches to DEATH rates, rather than MURDER rates.

California, New York and Illinois all get an "A" or a "B"... are far safer than Utah or Idaho or Montana, huh? Yeah, sure.

The New York Times. Not sure what the OP´s point is. This actually sounds like yet another plan to make it as difficult as possible for law abiding gun owners. So difficult that it is effectively impossible to own firearms. Like in several US States and Cities.

OP I suspect ignores the out of control situation in parts of Chicago where gun laws are almost totally ignored.

Ignored like the Air Force shining on the requirement to report to the FED the BCD of the Texas Shooter. Ignored like the liberal Socialist Democrats ignore the fact the FED ignores and refuses to enforce laws already on the books.

Ignores like the ATF and the Justice Department ignored their laws and made it possible for many hundreds of illegal gun sales that found their way into unlawful shooting incidents along our Southern Border.

I could go on ad infinitum but you get the point.

Remember when law enforcement talk gun safety in the public schools? That day is long gone as is prayer in schools. Come to think of it, that´s when we started having all these problems. We used to get in trouble shooting spit balls in straws at school. Now kids bring guns and knives. The problems America is having are Spiritual and of our own making.

No matter what scheme is enacted, it will be administered by the government. Do you trust them? I don´t. Each and every incremental restriction is a step toward their stated goal of outlawing all guns for everyone.

U.S. Constitution: "no law SHALL infringe" on the right´s to bear arms.

SHALL is not MAY, or COULD, or MIGHT.

The current laws on the books would have prevented this person from purchasing a gun IF the Air Force had done what it was supposed to do by reporting his actions.

Allow me to postulate something here...

The Obama Administration did NOT allow normal background screenings to be performed in order to increase the numbers of gun crimes that would ensue. Such subterfuge would play into the anti-gun lobby, not the NRA.

Investigate and if this was a plan it´s time for Congress to Impeach former pResident Obama.

I have many thoughts on gun control, but I cannot condense them enough to be suitable for this forum. But one thing is patently clear. The government CANNOT protect your family from gun violence . . . it is up to families to protect families from gun violence: Devin Kelley’s family knew of his violent nature. They KNEW he should not be allowed to have guns, and they knew he had guns, but did NOTHING. In my mind his family is as guilty as the shooter himself. They should have taken steps to protect the families of others.

The shooting in Texas would never have happened if a Navy clerk had entered the shooters name into the FBI data base and identified him as being separated from the service with a bad conduct discharge for domestic violence.The FBI then would have been able to prevent him from purchasing the rifle when it received a clearance request from the gun dealer. This case is not about poor gun control. It´s about someone failing to do their job.

Make the penalty for abusing the right to keep and bear arms so sever that criminals will choose not to use them.

Possesing a firearm during during the commission of a crime or when it´s illegal should be 30 years in a federal prison.

The Air Force JAG let those people down. They didn´t report his conviction to the FBI, as required. That would have prevented him for obtaining firearms from a legal source.

I believe that it was Dereliction of Duty on their part and they should be held accountable.

OXFORD, England — From the comfort of his country estate in Oxford, a distant relative of the Russian literary giant Tolstoy says he has the perfect solution for what ails the United States. America, he declares, needs a monarchy. In fact, Count Nikolai Tolstoy says, more kings, queens and all the frippery that royalty brings would be not just a salve for a superpower in political turmoil, but also a stabilizing force for the world at large. “I love the monarchy,” Count Tolstoy, 82, said as he sat in his lush garden behind an expansive stone house. “Most people think the monarchy is

But I do care about the beer I drink, which apparently would be considered hopelessly uninteresting by those who follow the latest trends. I’m talking about wonderful, thirst-quenching, conversation-inducing beers, the type that you can drink a lot of almost without noticing. Brown ale, for example.

Phase two of the remaking of Trump. An internal conflict over the trajectory of the GOP’s evolution in the Trump era quietly reached a turning point in late 2017 that has become clear only in hindsight. The “originals”–who joined Trump’s campaign when no other Republican political professionals would–have been purged or sidelined. The president has opted to outsource his legislative priorities to conventional Republicans in Congress, and he has delegated the conduct of foreign affairs to responsible administration officials. The contemptible alt-right and their “America First” allies are beside themselves even as erstwhile Trump skeptics in the GOP are suddenly

For all of President Trump’s tweeted thunderings about “fake news,” one could be forgiven for thinking that he enjoys spreading it himself. What other explanation can there be for Mr. Trump’s impulse to retweet three half-baked videos from the website of the U.K. fringe group Britain First? When this sort of tweeting bubbles out of the fever swamps, hardly anyone notices anymore. Or they pass it off as an emission from Vladimir Putin’s low-rent Russian propaganda shop.

Who Are Sufi Muslims and Why

Sufism is a mystical form of Islam, a school of practice that emphasizes the inward search for God and shuns materialism. It has produced some of the world’s most beloved literature, like the love poems of the 13th century Iranian jurist Rumi. Its modern-day adherents cherish tolerance and pluralism, qualities that in many religions unsettle extremists. But Sufism, often known as Islamic mysticism, has come under violent attack in recent years. On Friday, militants stormed a Sufi mosque on the Sinai Peninsula, killing at least 305 people in what officials are calling the worst terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history. The

AIRO — Militants detonated a bomb inside a crowded mosque in the Sinai Peninsula on Friday and then sprayed gunfire on panicked worshipers as they fled, killing at least 305 people and wounding at least 128 others. Officials called it the deadliest terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history. The scale and ruthlessness of the assault, in an area racked by an Islamist insurgency, sent shock waves across the nation — not just for the number of deaths but also for the choice of target. Attacks on mosques are rare in Egypt, where the Islamic State has targeted Coptic Christian churches and

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said.
