Op-Ed: The Dark Side of the Universal Background Check Bill HR8

USA – (AmmoLand.com)- H.R. 8 is sold as a “background check bill” to keep guns away from bad people, but we know from 50 years experience that less than 1% of the bad people who fail the background checks are prosecuted. Make no mistake, this is ONLY about setting up a process which can be later used for registration of guns and gun owners. What is needed are not more background check laws, but...

Dayton killer motive found? "Pro-gun control" and "wanted to promote a change with gun [laws]"

Dayton police say they are still searching for a motive after a man with a violent past misused a firearm to murder his sister and 8 others outside a bar in the Oregon District. One thing they will no-doubt be looking into is how the man's anti-gun rights extremism affected his decision to carry out his cowardly attack.

Modern mass killers generally display three traits: 1) they suffer from severe depression, 2) they feel socially isolated, 3) they are pathologically narcissistic, convinced that they have been wronged or cheated by society. So they lash out...

"Universal" background checks would not have stopped attacks in Dayton or elsewhere

In the wake of terrible attacks by deranged individuals in Gilroy, California, El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio over the past week, anti-gun rights politicians and extremists are once again sinking to the level of trying to score political points amidst the blood.
