Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Washington Post admits new study “reinforces a common refrain among gun rights advocacy groups.”

new study released by the University of Pittsburg finds that nearly 8 in 10 gun crimes are committed with illegally-possessed guns. The findings are summarized in this Washington Post headline: “New Evidence Confirms what Gun Rights Advocates Have Said for a Long Time about Crime.”

What the NRA has been saying all along is that criminals, by definition,  don’t follow the law. As a result, new gun control laws will do nothing to prevent crime and make us safer.

Here is how the Washington Post summarized the findings:

“The top-line finding of the study — that the overwhelming majority of gun crimes aren’t committed by lawful gun owners — reinforces a common refrain among gun rights advocacy groups. They argue that since criminals don’t follow laws, new regulations on gun ownership would only serve to burden lawful owners while doing little to combat crime.”

Baltimore Sun: ‘…when [police commissioner] asked what one thing… would reduce crime, he didn’t talk about gun control…’

An article today in the Baltimore Sun, Baltimore’s gun violence paradox, finds;

“It’s notable that when [Baltimore City Police Commissioner] Davis was asked during a recent Sun editorial board meeting what one thing he would do if he could to reduce crime, he didn’t talk about gun control, more cops on the streets or better technology. His answer was drug treatment on demand.”

Bottom line: The Nevada Question One gun control ballot initiative, like other gun control measures before it, will do little, if anything, to reduce crime and make Nevadans safer. Instead, it will cost Nevadans time, money, and freedom. (buy hey, that is the result gun banners wanted right ~ AmmoLand)

Why is no one addressing the “Temporary Transfers” portion of Question #1? These stupid restrictions are the most likely to get lawful gun owners in trouble over common, everyday sport shooting activities. Essentially, unless you are directly with someone else when hunting, or at a ‘designated range’ (and who gets to make that list?), or in immediate jeopardy, you cannot even hand your firearm to someone else. Out in the desert shooting with a buddy? Don’t hand him your firearm (illegal as not at a designated range). Have a friend who does light gunsmithing, or has the tools to do… Read more »

Mr. Bloomberg, The Nazi Gun Controller, he thinks he knows what is best for the country. If he does he should run for President. He knows he would not be elected, especially from voters from the City of New York as mayor. Where he tried to eliminate the selling of 32 oz or larger soda, that was shot down. What I can’t understand, what gives him the right to think he knows what the American People should and should not have. He tried so hard to eliminate gun ownership, state by state, So far I don’t think he been too… Read more »

How about not slapping the backs of hands and reinstate capital punishment! If I Rob a quick stop and because it’s my first time and only got 200$, make the only punishment death when a firearm is used. Hell, I’d be for death anyway. Just because an individual did harm to another individual. I am sick of paying taxes for aholes to sit in jail getting there squares and a cot all while having free time during the day to exercise and go to the library or get a degree. Sheriff Arpaio (that doesn’t look right) has it right. The… Read more »

Nevada is Kalifornicated with a mix of brain a washed east coasters. I hope this fails but there is a good chance it will pass. Clark county is filled these kind of people and where the voting power resides.
