Don't expect to see this in most newscasts. Ch 9 did air this statement, though. See the full story here.
A friend of the group has 7.62x39 battle-field style ammo up for sale. He wants $50 for 100rds. It's a mix of tracer/penetrater (imported pre-ban). If you have an AK, SKS or SAR you may want to pick it up and use for a private range or safe keeping (getting hard to come by the stuff, afterall). Email us and we'll send you his contact info.
These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the transcript:
"Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women.. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out f or answers.
"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.
"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun.. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent.
I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best..
Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage,
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!
" Men and women are three-part beings.. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational
systems for most of our nation's history Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.
"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge...... Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!
My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"
Do what the media did not - - let the nation hear this man's speech..

They were working off of INCORRECT info given to them by the Atty General's office. There is no 2-hr refresher course, and at this point, the rules for renewing for your 2nd license involve re-taking the WHOLE class, less the written test.
Odds are the law will change before the first people require renewal for their 3rd license (2nd renewal, due in 4 more years). So stay tuned!
They don't use the same terminology when referring to stocks, commodities, property, or absolutely anything else that one might purchase foreseeing a potential rise in value... Only guns. And even acknowledge that the logic is sound.
Shame, WSJ is a good paper. Too bad this writer (or an editor or whoever) so blinded by his own beliefs that objectivity is lost.

Going in, it was obvious that ABC was anti-gun, so the conclusions they'd want to reach were clear. Regardless, let's look at the show, uncleverly disguised as a news feature. If you haven't watched it I encourage you to do so, if only to see how bias effects news reporting. And how you might see that emotion will push the gun issue for many, disregarding the true facts in each situation.
Part 1: You can't respond during a mass shooting. They show some light training and put a fake gun on someone, a shooter busts into the room and starts shooting and none of three armed people can respond in time. This section is meant to show that concealed carry doesn't work--you can't respond and may even put others in danger while responding to a threat.
There are some problems here. First, it assumes that the only time it's appropriate to use a gun in self-defense is when you're the first person to be shot at in a mass shooting. According to the Dept of Justice over 2-million uses of guns for self-defense happen each year. Most times it's using a gun to scare off an attacker (rapist, robber, etc.).
Second, it assumes that the armed individual is in the room where the shooting begins. In this piece, they also let you hear audio recordings of people begging police to come and help them while a shooter is on the loose--if these people had the ability to defend themselves, the story could have changed (and has been in dozens of real-world cases). In fact, they admit that many cops couldn't have responded if put in the same situation as those in the simulation. What does this mean? That maybe the first few people may fall victim... But what if the rest of the people in the situation may have the option for defense (as opposed to be unarmed, and therefore have no option). They don't ask this question, only sticking with the option that reaches their desired conclusion (guns = bad).
Third, they make no mention of the dozens of cases of mass shootings being stopped in the REAL WORLD by those carrying guns. Several school shootings, including one not far from Virginia Tech, a grade school, a mall shooting, and a church shooting in Colorado have been stopped by normal citizens carrying guns, and that's just in the last few years. There are literally hundreds of examples of this. Instead of bringing up the real-world, they go on and on about their theoretical situation, and how cops are trained for hundreds of hours per year on how to operate and use their guns (guns are too complicated for most of us normal dummies, I guess). In actual application, the way a cop uses a gun is very different from a civilian. We actually say during classes that you "ARE NOT A COP, AND DON'T PRETEND TO BE ONE." Cops are trained to use their guns as offensive weapons, not defensive like civilians. No mention of that, either...
Finally, it assumes that everyone would be better off if no one but the SHOOTER is armed. Yep, that's actually what they quote someone as saying. Are they expecting anyone to believe that places like post offices, schools, and all the other places where guns are off-limits are safer than other places? The stats on where mass shootings happen disagree strongly--nearly always in places where concealed carry is illegal. Again, guns = bad is as deep as they're willing to go. In fact, they do not even make mention that every mass shooting they talk about in the program happened in a place where a normal citizen was NOT allowed to carry a gun. I think that stat speaks louder than any other.
Part 2: Younger children with guns. "Parents are stunned when their own children find guns among the toys." Even though they were just given lessons of gun safety.
It says that the best way to keep kids from being hurt is to force locked up guns, even showing a kid saying he hopes everyone who owns guns locks them up.
Really, their research showed that teens were very good around guns. Only when they introduced a child actor to prompt kids to take risks there was an issue.
Regardless, the NRA pushes the idea that you should lock up your guns if you have a kid at home. That's a no-brainer. Past this, the odds of your kid drowning or dying in a medical accident are exponentially higher than being killed in a gun accident. Gun accidents do not even rank as a cause of child death by the CDC--the stats are too low. They don't mention this, just guns = bad. Plus accidents have been decreasing steadily since the 1960s, when the NRA's education program they said didn't work went into effect, and are currently at an all-time low (despite the fact that gun ownership has been rising).
Part 3: A little kid wants to tell President Obama to make guns illegal. It's not safe for me to play outside because of the guns, he says. Do they talk about the fact that everyone he is discussing is BREAKING THE LAW? That the gun violence he's talking about is all related to crime, including how they acquired the guns?
The sheriff in the piece says the real problem is that no witnesses are willing to talk due to gang violence. So it isn't guns, it's gang violence. Too bad they'd rather pull heartstrings than look at the facts. Arrest the bad guys and this problem goes away. Ask people in Chicago and DC, where murder rates are high but guns are illegal.
Really, ABC's views of guns are about as well-founded as the 8-yr old's in the piece. He's cute, but he's 8. At least he has an excuse for not researching. He can't understand the complicated issue, and certainly doesn't understand that dozens of countries have made guns illegal and the result has been increased violence and crime. Russia has the higest per-capita murder rate in the civilized world and guns have been illegal for decades. Or Australia and England, where violent crime has been skyrocketing since making guns illegal.
Taking away guns from people who can defend themselves makes crime go up. It's been proven every time it's been tried. Would have been nice if ABC looked into this deeper than just talking to an 8-yr old.
Part 4: How many guns can one person buy at a gun show? They're trying to scare you into believing that gun shows are the source of guns for bad guys. They bring in a V-Tech victim's sister to go into the gun shows. They even told you that the V-Tech shooter DID NOT, yes, did not get his guns from a gun show, but from a gun shop, where he had to pass a background check. He did pass, and the law's been tightened since then. So what's the point of the piece? Oh yea, guns are bad...
In reality, stats show that gun shows are one of the lowest sources of crime guns--less than 1% of gun-show guns are used in crimes according to the gov't. Any research would have told ABC this, but they chose to, instead, play on people's ignorance and emotions. They chose to pick a stat that isn't a stat -- the ATF says these guns may be a source of gun crimes.
Part 5: Everyone wants guns illegal, and defending yourself is going to hurt innocents. They plug a group of mayors pushing the gun bans, led by Chicago and New York (where guns are already illegal) and the dangers of "friendly-fire" and "tunnel-vision" while defending yourself, again using the same BS scenerio in the beginning of the piece (even though in both cases the carry-holder hit the bad guys). And in the friendly-fire push, they can't even show an example (besides a "theoretical one") where others were hurt.
In the real world, 48 states have concealed carry and literally tens of millions of Americans carry everyday for self defense. Friendly fire and tunnel-vision are potential problems, but they have proven to not be an issue. In fact, Hamilton County's prosecutor recently named dozens of cases of carry holders who defended themselves and couldn't name one case of a friendly-fire incident. It is very uncommon... Too bad ABC decided to keep by their thesis (guns = bad), rather than do any research.
We can't expect more from a news source that comes to a story with a thesis already set. They're anti-gun, it's obvious, and they don't even try to show the other side. Ignore the stats, only place calls to the NRA so they can show some sort of effort, and quote Brady Campaign, anti-gun advocates, etc. throughout, only citing stats from sources that are biased or only tell one side of the story.
Don't expect real investigation or surprising outcomes. ABC, and the rest of the mainstream media, have an agenda. I think we all saw this in the last elections, and don't be surprised to see more editorialization disguised as journalism as the new order's agenda moves into full-swing.

FOX News Reports On The Myth Of "90 percent": In a story that looks at the reality of firearms seized from Mexican drug cartels, Fox News has found that the truth does not match the rhetoric of anti-gun politicians and journalists.
In a story entitled "The Myth of 90 Percent: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From U.S." Fox reporters William La Jeunesse and Maxim Lott found that the 90% number far overstates the number of U.S. origin guns that are in the hands of the cartels. In fact, the story reports that the number is actually closer to 17%.
On Thursday, April 2, U.S. Senators Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Bob Bennett (R-Utah), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) introduced legislation (S.816) to restore the Second Amendment rights of visitors in national parks and wildlife refuges (its companion bill, H.R. 1684 was introduced last week by Congressman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.). The current Department of the Interior (DOI) regulations were amended by the Bush Administration in 2008, allowing law-abiding citizens to defend themselves by carrying a concealed firearm in national parks and wildlife refuges. However, early this year, a federal district court in Washington, D.C. granted anti-gun plaintiffs a preliminary injunction against implementation of the new rule. The NRA has been working for the past several years in the regulatory, legal, and legislative arenas to achieve this policy change.
