NGVAC
January 7, 2016
 

This week began with a scathing oped by NGVAC CEO Elliot Fineman in the New York Daily News calling Obama’s imminent executive actions meaningless without the declaration of a National State of Emergency. With many photos and captions (“President Obama could deal with gun violence overnight, but he won’t”; the NRA “will rejoice that Obama’s actions pose no threat to guns in America”) one print version of the Daily News even headlined the story that Obama was “shooting blanks.” Thank you New York Daily News.

I founded NGVAC for one simple reason—the strategies of current anti-gun violence groups, big and small, can never succeed at the federal level. No matter what gun atrocities occur, the 34 Senators from pro-gun states (among others) will never allow gun safety legislation to pass. (more…)

Here Is an Example of Gun Control Done in the US Today and Practiced for Decades. Surprise– It Works!

There have not been any machine gun incidents in decades. How come? 100,000 are owned and they can be sold or transferred to those that want them.

A machine gun differs from a semi-automatic assault weapon in that one pull of the trigger rapidly fires a torrent of bullets whereas a semi-automatic assault weapon fires one bullet for each trigger pull. Yet—as we tragically know—they can fire 50 to 100 bullets per minute.
