Everything You Should Know About The 1994 Assault-Weapons Ban


by Tyler Durden
Tue, 03/06/2018 - 10:56


Authored by Donna Carol Voss , op-ed via The Daily Caller,

Here we go again. Another assault weapons ban rears its knee-jerk head. The Assault Weapons Ban of 2018 is the feel-good, we-have-to-do-something move. I’m all for it if it will make a positive difference. But it won’t. We already know that it won’t because of the 1994 assault weapons ban.



Remember how excited your mother was in 1994? “Honey,” she said, “finally we’re doing something about crime.” She did have a point since crime had been rising steadily through the eighties and early nineties. The ban seemed like a good idea at the time, and darn it if FBI crime statistics didn’t prove her right. (You hate it when that happens.) From 1994 to 2004, the violent crime rate dropped 35 percent.

When the Department of Justice released statistics about firearms homicides specifically, your mother was even more sure of herself. In 1993, the year before the ban took effect, there were 18,253 firearm homicides. The ban took effect, and the number of firearm homicides dropped every year for the next seven years. They began to rise again in 2001, but in 2004, there were 11,624 firearm homicides, an overall reduction of 36 percent.

“See?” your mother crowed, “Told ya!” (*sigh*)

Then you got to thinking. There was that statistics course you took in college, and something is niggling in the back of your mind. Hey, you realized, those numbers don’t mean much unless you know how many guns were on the street while all of this was happening. A crude measure of gun sales is criminal background checks, and the FBI began collecting data in 1998, four years into the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. You can’t study the entire ban period, but you can study the last six years. And then you can study the first six years after the ban.

For the six years from 1999 to 2004 when the ban was lifted, 52,214,932 background checks were conducted. For the first six years after the ban was lifted (2005 to 2010), 71,319,676 background checks were conducted. If each background check represents one gun, 19 million more guns were purchased in the six years after the ban than during the last six years of the ban. This makes intuitive sense: when guns are banned, fewer guns are sold; when the ban is lifted more guns are sold. But is it the number of guns we care about or what people are doing with those guns?

You compare the data on background checks - your reference point for gun sales - to the FBI’s data on what people were doing with those guns for 1997 to 2001, 2002 to 2006, and 2007 to 2011. While you’re at it, you look at what the FBI says people were doing with rifles specifically since there were a principal target of the ban.

The FBI says that during the last six years of the ban, firearms were used to kill 54,468 people, 2,483 of whom were killed with a rifle.

During the first six years after the ban - with 19 million more guns on the street - the FBI says firearms were used to kill 58,065 people, 2,432 of whom were killed with a rifle.

What? More people were killed with a rifle during the ban than after the ban? Could it be the assault ban made no difference to homicide by rifle? Why, yes, yes it could. And with 19 million more guns on the street after the ban, there were only 3,597 additional firearms homicides? Could it be that limiting guns had very little impact on limiting total firearms homicides? Why, yes, yes it could.

You realize that during the last six years of the ban, there was one gun murder for every 959 guns whereas during the first six years after the ban, there was one gun murder for every 1,228 guns. Well, you’re right to wonder, if there were more guns but fewer firearms homicides per gun, what was everybody doing with all those extra guns? They certainly weren’t using them to murder more people. Could this help to explain the steady drop in violent crime rates that has continued since 2004? Could it be that people are using those extra guns to defend themselves and to deter and prevent all kinds of violent crime? Why, yes, yes it could.

You need to tell your mother.

Especially if she looks like Dianne Feinstein.

State of the 2nd: NRA, Unite Community, YouTube bans gun channels
Military Arms Channel



Published on Mar 7, 2018
PLEASE SUPPORT MAC ON PATREON (we are viewer supported): http://www.patreon.com/militaryarms

New political commentary series: State of the 2nd. This is Episode 1.

There is some confusion out there about why I so staunchly opposed to the NRA and their actions. I clarify my position on the NRA, discuss uniting our community for the coming fight for our rights and touch on Youtube's recent banning of gun channels.

Start fighting NOW: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/ Call the White House at (202)-456-1111 and tell President Trump to stop the assault on our Bill of Rights. He’s advocating for the destruction of the 2nd and 4th Amendments. If that number is busy, call 202-456-1414.

Florida House passes legislation to ban bump stocks, raise the age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21 and allows teachers to be armed three weeks after Parkland school shooting- but Gov. Rick Scott could end it with a veto
  • A mix bill has passed in the Florida House which could end the sale of bump stocks, allow teachers in participating schools to be armed and raising rifle age
  • The bill won at a 67-50 vote with a mix of Democrats and Republicans
  • Two parents who lost their children in the school shooting in Parkland on February 14 said there was enough good in the bill that is should pass it
  • Gov. Rick Scott could potentially end the bill with a veto, and he says he is reviewing the legislation and will be speaking with families

Anti-Gun Liberal Saws Off AR-15 Barrel on Camera, Creating Illegal SBR, ATF Notices (REACTION)
Anthony Brian Logan



Published on Mar 9, 2018
Virginia congressional Democratic candidate Karen Mallard is under investigation after she posted a video of herself on social media cutting apart an AR-15 rifle to advocate for gun reform, according to a local news report.

The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is investigating Mallard after she posted a video Wednesday on Facebook of herself sawing off the barrel of her husband’s rifle.

Several people who replied to the post said Mallard broke the law. Virginia’s Sawed-Off Shotgun and Sawed-Off Rifle Act prohibits people from having a rifle that has been “modified to an overall length of less than 26 inches.”

“I grew up in Wise County, surrounded by guns. Our family had guns my whole life. We use them for hunting, for protection and recreation,” she said in the video before noting the Feb. 14 shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School convinced Mallard and her husband to destroy the rifle.

“So, today, we’re going to destroy it,” Mallard said before using a handheld power saw to slice and dice the semi-automatic weapon. Mallard, a school teacher and Democrat running for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, said she followed legal procedure for destroying a firearm.

“And yes, for all the NRA trolls out there; I finished the job according to regulation and turned it over to the police,” she wrote in a post accompanying the video. “Why are you more outraged about me taking a gun out of circulation than about our children being murdered in our schools?”

A Virginia Beach Police Department spokeswoman confirmed to a local news outlet the rifle was in the department’s possession. The ATF is now looking into the situation.

Bullies, fatherless homes, and mood altering drugs are the problem, not guns!
Legally Armed America


Published on Mar 9, 2018
The anti-gun crowd makes the pompous comment that they want "common sense" gun control, but they evade true common sense in their attacks and attempts to ban and control guns. We did the research that no one else wants to do because our politicians are scared to address the real problems. And here's a secret - the pharmaceutical industry pays WAY more than the NRA does.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs Parkland bill which bans bump stocks, raises the age of buying a gun to 21 and provides training for school 'guardians' to learn how to properly use weapons
  • The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act has been signed
  • It provides funding for a school Crime Stoppers program to detect threats
  • It also allots money to mental health programs and raises the legal age to purchase a gun
  • The bill also allows schools to implement their own 'guardian' program
  • It would involve an employee other than a teacher to be trained how to use a gun
  • The bill does not ban semi-automatic assault rifles like the AR-15 used by Nikolas Cruz

NEW B&T TP9 SBR Ready 9mm Pistol!
Military Arms Channel


Published on Mar 12, 2018
PLEASE SUPPORT MAC ON PATREON (we are viewer supported): http://www.patreon.com/militaryarms

B&T listens to its customers. Check out this new B&T TP9 pistol! I've seen them make so many changes the last few years to their designs all of which was based on customer feedback. For such a large company, they seem to be very quick to process input and turn it around quickly into production improvements. The new B&T TP9 9mm is another example of that. We also take a look at the Gear Head Works Tailhook brace on the TP9 pistol and the new Tech Smith Mfg. brace adapter for the TP9 and other B&T pistol products.

Retired Green Beret Fears "Marxist Wolves Circling The 2nd Amendment"


by Tyler Durden
Tue, 03/13/2018 - 23:40


Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces) via SHTFplan.com,

There’s no need at this point to pull any punches, and the Marquis of Queensbury rules have already been tossed out the window. The wolves are circling to bring down the 2nd Amendment. Those wolves are the establishment. There are no political parties: the political parties are merely the illusion of choice. The government has been removed from the control of “We the People” for more than a century. The wolves are the Federal Government, the State Governments, the Local and Municipal Governments. The wolves are the Democrats, the Republicans, and the far-left parties (Communists, Greens, etc.).

The wolves employ the coyotes: the youth, misguided and misled, who are interested in partying and doing the minimal to “get by” in life...an entitlement mindset. They know not that they will be “pruned” by the tree-trimmers…the ones who will rout these saplings out before they become aware…aware of the truth. The tree-trimmers are the ones who would chop down the tree of liberty…that selfsame tree that needs (in the words of Thomas Jefferson) to be watered from time to time with the blood of patriots and the blood of tyrants.




The youth are critical to the wolves from a voting perspective, because (as de Tocqueville wrote) they enable the wolves to attain victory through “the tyranny of the majority,” in which rights are trampled by using numbers to tip the balance and allow majority rule…no matter how mindless or uninformed. No matter that the mindless vote for one reason, while the wolves have another purpose in mind. Coyotes, the mindless, who will be enslaved and pruned when the right time arises.

First the guns: they must have the guns.

On Friday, Governor (in name only) Rick Scott of Florida signed a new, lovely law that is onerous to the Constitution and directly assaults the 2nd Amendment. This excerpt from the AP holds the basic parameters:

…the law,…raises the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21; extends a three-day waiting period for handgun purchases to include long guns; and bans bump stocks, which allow guns to mimic fully automatic fire.

As can be seen, the law is onerous to the Constitution. There is nothing that needs to be explained about the wording in the 2nd Amendment “shall not be infringed upon,” regarding the right to keep and bear arms. Marbury vs. Madison established the fact that any law that is onerous to the Constitution is null and void, plain and simple.

The problem is their “public safety” and “extraordinary circumstances,” that arm the wolves for slashing the throats of the deer in the name of the “public good.”

Go ahead and take it to court. Go ahead. You’ll automatically open yourself up…come forth before the barbarian hordes. You’ll be identified, monitored, followed, and placed upon their list. You will be marginalized further. You’re already marginalized and outside of normative behavior if you’re a veteran, a patriot, a person who believes in God and freedom of worship, and anyone who is against the national sovereignty of the United States being removed in favor of global governance.

The paradigm has shifted and is being shifted: the globalist initiative is replacing the Constitution for the new American existing social, political, and economic order.

Go ahead and take it to court. The NRA is filing a suit to prevent it. Nevertheless, the wheels are in motion. You will be fighting against the State…a “creature” with unlimited resources, with the media in its pocket, with thousands of actors/victims and other “living stage props” to use to garner public sentiment against you.

Read “The Running Man,” by Richard Bachman (a pen-name used by Stephen King…and read the book, as the movie is BS and was to sell, not to give the true concept of what the Running Man “contest” was about).

Here’s an excerpt of that excellent work, spoken by the head of the Network, Dan Killian, to the hero/protagonist Ben Richards:

“Your work record has been spotty and you’ve been fired…let’s see…a total of six times for such things as insubordination, insulting superiors, and abusive criticism of authority.”

Richards shrugged.

“In short you’re regarded as antiauthoritarian and antisocial. You’re a deviate who has been intelligent enough to stay out of prison and serious trouble with the government, and you’re not hooked on anything.”

Killian then goes on to tell Richards about the Running Man.

“The program is one of the surest ways the Network has of getting rid of embryo troublemakers such as yourself, Mr. Richards. We’ve been on for six years. To date, we have no survivals. To be brutally honest, we expect to have none.”

“Then you’re running a crooked table,” Richards said flatly.

Killian seemed more amused than horrified.

“But we’re not. You keep forgetting you’re an anachronism, Mr. Richards. People won’t be…rooting for you to get away…They want to see you wiped out, and they’ll help if they can.”

Our society is upon the cusp of a transformation to that one…a society where it is mandatory to have a free television (termed the “FreeVee) in every home…to provide a modern form of the Roman “Games” of the Flavian Amphitheater and the Circus Maximus…enrapturing and distracting the public. A society where drugs are legalized and encouraged. A society of a repressive police state, where a rigid class structure has been established. A society that consists of most of the populace as dumbed-down, dependent upon the government for subsistence. A society where government and the oligarchy openly pollute the skies, while they walk around with filters to protect against it…at taxpayer expense.

A society of ghettos, of third-world living conditions, with heavily-guarded mansions and office buildings sporadically dotting the megalopolises. A society of economic decay and crony capitalism. A society that presents “freedom” and “patriotism” as binding ribbons in a theatrical manner to ensure conformity and social “groupthink” and actions of the herded. Rigidity of thought, of conformity, and the haves pursue thrills and personal gratification and the have-nots are too dulled, too herded, and too uneducated to enable a shift in the other direction. A society where the guns are gone…have been gone for a while.

First, they need to get the guns, and they’re doing it now…with incremental slowness, but the snowball is beginning to build up speed and mass: In the end, they’ll go door to door.

On Friday night, 3/9/18, the largest Veterans’ home in the country had another shooting. A 36-year-old former patient of the home went in and killed three psychological workers…whom the President came out on Saturday and praised glowingly as martyrs and heroines…tireless workers who strove for the benefit of veterans. I’m sure there’s more to the story than that…but there’s the narrative, awaiting the crafting of the wolves and their slime of the mainstream media.

The bill is entitled the “Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Act,” after the school where the Cruz shooting occurred. The bill in Florida targets the youth…and now they have a pretext to come after the Veterans with this shooting. Always for a reason of protecting the public.

But who will protect us from them, from the government? Well, we will: that is what the 2nd Amendment is for. The right to bear arms is our right…merely affirmed by the Constitution (and wisely so). As explained in the Declaration of Independence, when the “old guards” need to be changed…the guns are when they won’t bow out gracefully.

Government is when the leaders derive just powers…just, mind you…from the consent of the governed. We haven’t had true stewardship for a long time in the United States…I don’t care about the semantics…it is the end state that matters. The current state that we are in. The government goes against the wishes of the people.

The government always manages to drum up Republicans who will vote along with the Democrats to ram legislation down our throats. In Illinois, gun confiscation is going to be finalized with a bill commanding those 18 to 20 years of age to turn in weapons that were legally purchased. The article is entitled “Gun Confiscation Begins in Illinois,” dated 3/10/18, by Daniel J. Sobieski of American Thinker. Read it. Here are some of the key provisions for that “legislation” as mentioned in the article:

The bill that will now head to the Illinois Senate, HB 1465,

Makes it unlawful for any person within the State to knowingly deliver or sell, or cause to be delivered or sold, an assault weapon, assault weapon attachment, .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge to, any person under 21 years of age.

Makes it unlawful for any person under 21 years of age to knowingly possess an assault weapon, assault weapon attachment, .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge 90 days after the effective date of the bill. Provides exemptions and penalties.

Provides that it is unlawful for any person within the State to knowingly deliver or sell, or cause to be delivered or sold, a large capacity ammunition feeding device to a person under 21 years of age.

Provides that it is unlawful for any person under 21 years of age to possess a large capacity ammunition feeding device within the State.

Proving the line from the movie “The Patriot” with Mel Gibson is the truth of the matter: “An elected legislature can trample a man’s rights as easily as a king.”

Let’s really think about all of this. The piece “The Running Man” mentioned above can clearly be viewed as a work of dystopian literature, and it’s easy for most people to see the tie-in to our society’s degradation on the slope toward the society in the book.

How about we take it a step further? The main character in the book, Ben Richards, wanted to make the big dollars to help his sick daughter and enable her to recover. His back against the wall and hemmed in by a society that predetermined his entire existence, “The Running Man” was the only avenue for him.

How about with these guys, such as the one in the VA home that killed those three women…and then shot himself?

Everybody always comes out with the same theories…the “hidden Blackhawk helicopters backing up the shooter,” as in Vegas…always the 2nd and 3rd shooters on the grassy knoll. But what if the answer is a lot simpler than that?

How about the shooter is approached from the government…beforehand…and goes on his rampage with the express (and agreed-upon) end being he (the shooter) blows his own brains out? In exchange, the government, per say, might set up a tax-free account for 5 or 10 million for his family…who are oblivious to the agreement. He frees his family from poverty, and there’s nobody around to question his “insane motives,” and the government has its tool to be able to advance a totalitarian agenda even further…complete with (as in the “Hunger Games”) a list of “the fallen,” now martyred…with cannon fire in the background and a “grieving nation.”

How about that possibility? Because if anyone discounts the possibility, you better discount everything you have ever seen and/or read about that the government has done. They have the resources, the money, the ability. They have the planning skills to carry it out. They also will always be able to find someone to use in this capacity.

We are at the cusp of a totalitarian takeover by the government in the guise of governance for the public good and using de facto law that is passed off as de jure. By the time it is challenged in the “legal eagle” manner, it will be too late. Those in power will not relinquish it, and more: they will subvert every right to ensure they are in power and not you. All authority does come from the barrel of a gun: they don’t carry firearms to protect you. They carry them to dominate you, and they can enslave you at a moment’s notice. The 2nd Amendment was to protect the citizens from an out of control government hell-bent on controlling your every action: a tyranny.

Jefferson: “When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

Concealed Carry for Teachers: REAL TALK
The VSO Gun Channel


Published on Mar 14, 2018
We recently put on a Pro Bono training for our local area teachers to obtain their concealed carry permit. "Doc" lead the class while I and a few others ran the range and helped with technical instruction. We had an excellent turn out and were pleased to surprise our students with a gift of 9mm ammunition provided by Fiocchi. This is the first in many steps toward securing our schools from future tragedies brought on by failure of government policy and short sighted ideology. In this video we are going to have a real talk about school shootings, gun control, gun free zones, and how to fix this epidemic using the second amendment . #hardenthetarget

Busting the WORST AK-47 Myths! (Featuring InRange TV and Mishaco)
TFB TV



Published on Mar 15, 2018
In this episode of TFBTV, James discusses (and busts) four of the most popular AK-47 myths with the help of Mishaco and Karl from InRange TV. Is the AK as 10+ MOA inaccurate as people say? Is it as reliable as legend tells us? Are they cheap to make? And what's the deal with shooting the AK's short sight radius versus the M4 or AR15? James addresses the myths surrounding these popular guns on today's TFBTV program.

The Irony of the Chinese Communist Party Pushing a U.S. Gun Ban

by TDB
Mon, 03/19/2018 - 13:14

Via The Daily Bell

Some people say that “No civilian should have military style weapons!”

Ironically they also criticize those who say gun ownership deters oppressive government. “Oh yea, your hunting rifle is going to stand up against the government’s tanks and bombs,” they laugh.

And yet, guerrilla warfare is extremely difficult to defeat.

Don’t get me wrong, I would not like to see the U.S. government get bad enough that a revolution is a serious option.

But even the U.S. government itself has admitted that there is a time and place to take up arms against an oppressive government. The U.S. government has armed Syrian rebels, Afghani rebels, and Libyan rebels just to name a few in recent times.

And guerrilla fighters are notoriously hard to beat. The U.S. knows that from fighting against rebels they armed, like the Afghanis and ISIS.
China also knows that guerrilla fighters are hard to beat. In fact, guerrilla resistance is responsible for the domination of the Communist Party since Mao Zedong.

Mao originally gained power by waging a years-long guerrilla campaign against the officially recognized Chinese state. The first fighters were largely farmers armed with farm tools and sharpened bamboo spears. Defections from the military helped them grow their ranks, and arm the soldiers. Their armory grew when they won battles and took the equipment of the enemy.

According to The 33 Strategies of War, by Robert Greene, Mao used a strategic armistice with the Chinese government to solidify his power during WWII.

Mao and his rebels were losing the civil war against the central state. But as Japan invaded, the two sides decided to stop fighting each other and instead focus on the Japanese. During this time, Mao was able to regroup and train his soldiers by attacking the Japanese with guerrilla tactics. Meanwhile, Chiang Kai-shek, the leader of the official Chinese army, waged a costly conventional defense against the invading Japanese.

Having suffered minimal losses, and with his fighters trained up, Mao turned his focus back to the Chinese government after World War II. Now the Communist leader controlled large swaths of China with loyal citizens who witnessed the Communist army’s resistance to the Japanese.

Within a few years, the Republic of China government was pushed off the mainland and took refuge in Taiwan. Since then, the Communist Party has dominated China.

China Calls for U.S. Gun Control

In a dark sort of hilarity, China state media says that the U.S. government must ban guns in order to protect human rights.

“The US will have to adopt gun control in the future,” the editorial said. “Gun ownership in China is strictly regulated, which helps reduce gun-related crimes and deaths. The US should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights. If the US does not control its guns, problems caused by firearms in the foreseeable future will continue plaguing US society.”​
… “It’s inhumane for the US, which boasts about its human rights record, to turn a blind eye to gun violence, snub increasing calls for gun control and risk more innocent lives.”​
I don’t know about you, but instead of 1,000–or 10,000 by one estimate–innocent unarmed civilians being massacred at Tiananmen square in 1989, I think it would have been better to see 1,000 armed resisters pick off Communist Party officials one by one.
But a well-armed civilian force is useful for more than rebellion.

Imagine if Americans ever had to repel a homeland invasion. It may seem unlikely now, but who knows what the political climate will be like in ten or twenty years. A brutal economic collapse–like the kind caused by runaway debt and hyperinflation–could spark a global conflict.

The United States shipped guns to British civilians during WWII because of the possibility of a German invasion. It was understood that resistance from every house, block, neighborhood, and village would overwhelm the invading force.

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto probably didn’t actually say: “You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”

But what he did say, was “The fiercest serpent may be overcome by a swarm of ants.”

He said that arguing against building a new type of battleship. While mighty, he said it didn’t matter compared to the countless jets that could attack it.

And the same lesson holds true for a murderous government, whether homegrown or foreign.

Throughout history, people have had to hold tyrannical governments in check. I hope that in this day and age information is the only weapon we will need.

But it would be naive and dangerously ignorant to remove the final line of defense against psychopathic tyrants.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.
