Obama Gun Grab Based On False Assumptions

By Jeff Moran

Black vs White Gun Deaths
Mr. Obama and his policy advocates seem to be ignoring the giant black and white elephants in the room, and this is shameful.

GENEVA  –-(Ammoland.com)- On Jan. 16 213, President Obama put forward his 15-page plan to “better protect our children and our communities from tragic mass shootings like those in Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, and Tucson.”

The plan’s titular theme was “now is the time” for action. The top two priorities: universal background checks for gun purchases and a categorical rifle ban.

Setting aside the troubling facts that the White House sales pitch had significant omissions and/or exaggerations, that other experts say mass shootings are not any more prevalent today than they were in the past, and that rifles account for approximately 3 percent of all homicides, Mr. Obama’s two priorities are simply misguided and off-target, especially if he wants to move the needle with respect to American gun homicides and suicides.

This is because his top two priorities, as well as the rest of his plan, are based on the false assumptions that lethal gun abuse is a large and growing problem, and that it impacts Americans equally, making one-size-fits-all solutions appropriate.

My analysis of data within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System reveals 10 empirical and interrelated reasons why Mr. Obama’s assumptions are false and why his top two priorities are dead wrong:…

@G,

Check out the proposed Kalifornia gun bill. You're either a paid socialist troll, or a Obamie dry humper. Permits to buy ammo? Yes, confiscation is being proposed. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

Misleading title that upsets your uneducated followers. A rifle/ammo clip ban is NOT a gun grab. A ban and confiscation are 2 totally things, you dumb cracker. There will be no confiscation because that would be impossible. Hell, it has never been suggested. And the remarks above of your followers confirms what the "makers" of this nation have suspected for a long time – gun nuts are a bunch of sheep f***ing, inbred, uneducated white extremists.

Hope you enjoy that welfare check I sent your way, Gomer.

It does not matter what kind of charts we put up, Obama does not care.His biased and one sided thinking is typical of the black community. I worked with the public as a serviceman for years and can't ever remember going in a black's house and seeing guns anywhere. They have the false assumption that the government will take care of them from the cradle to the grave and, sadly, only black gangs believe in protecting themselves. The regular black Joe doesn't realize that when these gangs show up, if they, the citizens, were to walk out and blow them… Read more »

The candy ass liberals and the kenya born african that is putrifying the White House talk about expanding the background check ? Just how do you do that ? Are law abiding gun owners all of a sudden going to have mental issues ? Are law abiding gun owners going to be considered terrorists ? There is not a damn thing wrong with the system thats in place,and they know it ! Feinstein,obama,pelosi and all this other trash needs to be impeached,tried for treason,and convicted.

Obama's plan IS NOT based on wrong assumptions. His plan is based on totally disarming the American public. His selling points are what are based on wrong assumptions and he knows it. He also knows that there are a lot of people that will take what he says as gospel because of who he is and that a lot of people that know the truth, won't speak up and even more that do speak up, won't attend meetings, write their representatives or go vote, because they think "Someone else will do it" or "My single vote won't matter". That's how… Read more »

The violence and inner city murders can be tied directly to the demise of the two-parent family.

Obama doesn't care about facts, he just wants to end civilian possession of guns, all guns.
