Guns don’t kill people…the Brady Campaign Against Women does.

04 Dec
Guns don’t kill people…the Brady Campaign Against Women does.

According to Bob Costas (apparently a self appointed Svengali when it comes to guns) Javon Belcher and his girlfriend would still be alive if it weren’t for guns and America’s gun culture.  As I touched on yesterday, pointing to professional wrestler Chris Benoit’s double murder suicide in which he strangled his wife, suffocated their child and hung himself with a weight machine cord, this is not a certainty.  Gruesome, deadly and not a gun in sight.

But let’s move away from Bob Costas’ ignorance and look at the many murders allowed to occur thanks to Sarah Brady and her zealous campaign against self defense.  I find it ironic that Sarah Brady holds such misogynistic views and how she condones the murder of innocent women.

Sarah Brady and her cabal of freedom hating sycophants first proposed their Bill in 1987.  It took a couple years before it passed both houses of Congress and signed into law by Bill Clinton.  The Brady Bill required a 5 day waiting period before a person can purchase a handgun.

A lot can happen in 5 days or less.

Based on a Wisconsin waiting period Bonnie Elmasri is dead.

On March 5, 1991 Bonnie Elmasri called a firearms instructor, worried that her husband, who was subject to a restraining order to stay away from her, had been threatening her and her children. When she asked the instructor about getting a handgun, the instructor explained that Wisconsin has a 48-hour waiting period. Ms. Elmasri and her two children were murdered by her husband twenty-four hours later.

Brady Law’s Main Effect: More Rapes and Attacks on Women

John Lott, senior research scholar at the School of Law at Yale University furthers the point of Brady’s campaign against women.

His research on the Brady Bill found that the law’s major effect is a 3 percent jump in rapes and assaults on women, especially in states that previously had few if any restrictive gun laws.

“It makes it difficult for someone to get a gun for self-defense,” says Lott, author of “More Guns, Less Crime.”

Then there is Catherine Latta who refused to be a victim.  In September 1990, Catherine of Charlotte, North Carolina, went to the police to obtain permission to buy a handgun. Her ex-boyfriend had previously robbed her, assaulted her several times, and raped her The clerk at the sheriff’s office informed her the gun permit would take two to four weeks. “I told her I’d be dead by then,” Ms. Latta later recalled. That afternoon’ she went to a bad part of town, and bought an illegal $20 semiautomatic pistol on the street. Five hours later, her ex-boyfriend attacked her outside her house, and she shot him dead. The county prosecutor decided not to prosecute Ms. Latta for either the self-defense homicide, or the illegal gun.

According to the Brady Campaign, it is better that women like Bonnie and Catherine are dead and raped.  Bonnie’s situation illustrates the danger that waiting periods pose while Catherine illustrates how utterly useless they are to begin with.

Sarah Brady and her cronies would tell these women to get a restraining order…as if a piece of paper is going to stop someone who is intent on doing you harm.   So while Costas drones on about how Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra would be alive today without a gun I argue that if Kasandra had a gun she would at least have had a fighting chance.

But then again, a fighting chance isn’t what Sarah Brady or Bob Costas want women to have.  Sarah Brady said it herself:

“We must get rid of all the guns.”
Sarah Brady, speaking on behalf of Handgun Control Inc
Phil Donahue Show, September 1994

“…I don’t believe gun owners have rights.”
Sarah Brady, Chairman, Handgun Control, Incorporated, from the Hearst Newspapers Special Report, “Handguns in America” October 1997)

So she wants to get rid of all the guns.  Gun owners don’t have rights.  To her the Second Amendment is an inconvenience that needs to be subverted.

You know who needs a gun?  A woman who is scared that her violent and dangerous husband, who stands at 6 foot 2 weighing in at over 225 lbs is out to do her harm.  Because if he wants to do harm to his wife who is a foot shorter and half the weight he will do so…easily.

Sam Colt didn’t make man…but he did make them equal.  That is even more true with regards to women.

Actually, what do I know…i’m just a guy.  But I will direct you to my friend Regis Giles site where she talks about this matter from a woman’s perspective in an aptly titled article “Lethal Ladies and Dead Rapists”.

I conclusion, one of the reasons I believe in the Second Amendment because I believe in equality.

I support a woman’s right to defend herself…Sarah Brady supports forcing a woman to be a victim.

    Meanwhile, as you espouse your illogical, narrow viewed, paranoid and archaic ideologies that are viewed as an embarrassment by the rest of the conservative world, your children are dying.

    Only in America does being conservative have anything to do with gun control.

    That people are murdered by ropes and knives is irrelevant.

    America’s firearm homicide rates are off the chart compared to the rest of the “civilized” world.

    America has more of its citizens in prison than any other country in the world. This says one or both of two things:

    A/ America breeds criminals.
    B/ Americas laws are unjust.

    But you keep telling yourself that America is the greatest country in the world.

    “No-compromise”? That’s what your blog is called. That’s the American way?

    You keep telling yourselves that as you watch America slowly disintegrate around you.

    You are creating a self fulfilling prophecy. You think you need guns to be free? Eventually, with that as your only paradigm, you will only need guns to protect you from yourselves. The logic is circular. America is the test tube of the world: This is what it looks like when a rich country has no public healthcare, 90 guns per 100 people, a political system so divided and artificially dualistic it no longer functions as a democracy, military expenditures that do not benefit the people who pay for it.

    Until America sheds its ego and accepts a new paradigm, it will only get worse.

    Until Rome finally falls.

      Andrew, as much as your Canadian viewpoint is amusing, the fact is that America is different from the rest of the world. Despite how the current administration is trying to undercut American values by apologizing to the rest of the world, Americans at their hearts believe in self reliance, entrepreneurship, and not sacrificing liberty for the illusion of safety.

      Even when Rome fell…they at least had been Rome. You’re canadian…even if your country lasts eons, you will still be just Canada. No one has ever dreamed of saving money their whole life in an oppressive or third world country so that their children can immigrate to Canada. No one waved Candadian flags in Eastern Bloc countries to herald the fall of Communism. No one turns to Canada to save their country when wolves are at the gate. The huddled masses do not dream of Canadian streets paved with gold. The Maple leaf does not represent freedom to the world like the Stars and Stripes does.

      America has it’s problems…but so long as we are free and liberty reigns…we’ll still be better than you.

      No offense to the Canadians who actually believe in freedom and liberty and have to grudgingly suffer under the yolk of Canadian tyranny. Though removing the gun registry was a great first step.

        I can only guess that you have not travelled the world much. I have, and there’s not one bit of truth in any of that idealistic, self-absorbed jingoism. Canadians, when travelling, know to identify themselves as Canadian lest they be mistaken for an American. Why would this be? Because the differences in reception is marked. Why? Because most of the world does not like what America stands for anymore. Your statue of liberty catch phrases are becoming less and less true. In fact people Do save their money and dream to coming to Canada. Our entire country and economy is based on steady a steady influx of immigration. The developing world no longer sees America as the apex of freedom and opportunity. Your paradigm is slowly becoming obsolete. A country that has begged for America to help them…Afghanistan? Nope. Iraq? nope. Vietnam? Nope. France? Nope. That fact that that this is indeed how you view these situations only goes to prove how slightly delusional and off-spectrum your perspective is. America intervenes when it is in Americas geopolitically interest to do do. There is no altruism in the equation. But what we are really talking about is your equation of personal freedom with the right to own weapons designed for combat. I was a weapons tech in the reserves. I live guns. I know my guns and u admit, they’re fun as hell. I made my wife buy my 4 year old daughter a toy dart rifle at walmart because it gad an awsomely reslistic bolt action. I taught her how to stand, how to sight, how to treat a firearm. But I don’t for one second think that my world would be safer if everyone on my street had an Ar15 and a Glock under their beds. Because that my friend is not freedom. It’s insane.

        Peace from Toronto.

    The Bonnie Elmasri story is, and always has been, a lie made up by pro-gun advocate James Fendry.
