Gun Control Myths & Facts

COUNTERING THE BIASED MEDIA NARRATIVE ON GUNS

Much of the media, general public and even our public schools are agenda driven when it comes to the gun debate.  There is a tendency to put emotion and agenda before facts. There is also a strong record of lies and severely twisted facts when it comes to the gun debate.  Here are some sources that hope to set some of those arguments straight. There are many good sources on the internet about this, and probably better and more up to date than ours.

For example, The Truth About Guns has an excellent page here:  https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/gun-facts/   This page merely augments that one, and many other similar pages that are readily available. 

Please do your own research and draw your own conclusions.

DEFENSIVE GUN USE IN THE UNITED STATES

Can the average citizen be relied upon to defend him or herself successfully from a violent threat?  Many among the media and political class would say no.  But the facts paint another story entirely.  (Side note:  If you think the Founding Fathers never could have predicted modern arms, check out this article.)

First, we need to point out that the police and other government personnel have no duty to protect you.  They have a general duty to enforce the law, but are not responsible for your safety.  YOU are the only one responsible for your own safety, just like almost everyone else on the planet.  See the Warren v District of Columbia or this article for further explanation.  

Unless you are wealthy and can afford armed bodyguards like anti-gun activists Mike Bloomberg and Alyssa Milano, you are on your own when it comes to your own defense. 

Here are some sources that powerfully demonstrate that Americans are overwhelmingly capable of protecting themselves with firearms.
