ERic Holder is really, really sad he could not get useless gun control laws passed

Worst AG ever? YEP!

If there’s one thing that Eric Holder regrets during his time as attorney general for the United States, it’s his failure to press through a Second Amendment crackdown on the heels of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead, he said.

“I think the inability to pass reasonable gun safety laws after the Newtown massacre is something that weighs heavily on my mind,” Mr. Holder said during an interview with CNN.

He was speaking of the White House push to pass a federal background check mandate for all commercial gun sales, as well as an outright ban on so-called assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines, in the wake of the December 2012 school tragedy.

Assault weapons is an invented term, that describes rifles that “look scary” or that look like military style rifles. they are, in fact just rifles, and are almost never used in crime, so banning those would not have had any impact on criminals. The same is true of banning “high-capacity” magazines. Such bans would have zero impact on criminals. Such laws WOULD, however, be used to ban many popular handguns and rifles that ARE used in hundreds of thousands of defensive gun uses by law-abiding Americans every year. And such laws would be used to pave the way for more restrictive laws.

The last of the legislative efforts to fail was a universal background check law that couldn’t make it out of the Democrat-controlled Senate. President Obama then announced a slew of executive actions to curb gun rights.

But Mr. Holder still reflected over the stronger legislation that never did pass.

“And the thought that we could not translate that horror into reasonable — I mean, really reasonable gun safety measures that were supported by the vast majority of the American people is for me something that I take personally as a failure,” he said, The Hill reported. “And something that I think we as a society should take as a failure — a glaring failure that I hope will ultimately be rectified.”

Holder lies through his teeth when he claims most Americans support such laws. Most OPPOSE such idiotic steps that do nothing but ban popular weapons that tens of millions of Americans own, and that millions have used in self-defense.

According to the Gun Control Cult things like this never happen

A Flint, Michigan robber armed with a knife thought that he had an easy score, until his “victim” turned out to be better armed .

Flint police were called to Clio Road on Thursday, Oct. 16, around 7:20 p.m. in reference to an attempted armed robbery, according to a police report.

Police said the suspect was armed with a knife, however, the intended victim was armed with a gun.

Police said the victim was able to hold the suspect at gunpoint until officers arrived on scene.

Despite what the Moms Demand Stupidity say, these types of stories are very common, Bob Owens illuminates us

Defensive gun uses are very common, but they rarely make the news unless the defender is forced to fire at the criminal. This non-firing defensive gun use is only newsworthy in the eyes of the media because it is very rare for the armed citizen to actually hold the criminal for responding police.

There are thought to be hundreds of thousands to several millions of defensive gun uses every year (depending on the cited study) where the mere presence of a firearm sends the criminal running for cover.

I can personally attest to that fact

The bogus Left’s “unarmed” narrative exposed

Katie Pavlich lays bare the manner in which the gun control cultists bastardize the term unarmed. You should read it all, here is bit to taste

Back in 2012, we heard about a similar case with 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot dead by George Zimmerman after an altercation in a crime plagued Florida neighborhood. According to a police report, Zimmerman returned to his SUV after a phone call with police about a suspicious person in the neighborhood. When he returned, Martin allegedly approached him from behind, punched him in the nose when Zimmerman turned around, got him on the ground and started pounding his head into the concrete, an action that can quickly result in death due to brain injury. Zimmerman thought he was going to die and shot Martin in self-defense.

Eyewitnesses corroborated Zimmerman’s story and a jury came to the same unanimous conclusion, acquitting him of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. A separate medical report showed Zimmerman sustained serious injuries from Martin including a broken nose and lacerations to the back of his head.

In extensive media coverage, both of these young men are referred to over and over again as “unarmed” teenagers. The way the media uses the term “unarmed” implies there was no altercation that resulted in a fatal shooting. What the media fails to explain or recognize is that “unarmed” people, in these cases two men who weren’t carrying firearms, don’t have to be “armed” in order to cause serious damage to a person’s life or harm to those around them. 

This brought to mind a story I read a few weeks ago in the Dallas Morning News Metro section, It told of two “unarmed” men shot to death by Dallas police over the previous weekend. But, upon reading the article, I found that both men had knives, which they refused to drop, and one charged at police. So, apparently, the only way a criminal can be armed is to have a gun. This is what the Left does, they lie, and misuse words to sell those lies. Clearly someone with a knife is not unarmed are they? And clearly charging at a police officer with a knife in hand is a perfect way to get shot. People get that, unless they are sold the whole “unarmed” pack of lies!

Your Quote of the Day

Comes via Bob Owens who lays out the cold hard truth about Gabby Giffords

But let’s make no mistake: Gabby Giffords isn’t about saving lives.

“Gun violence” is just a fabricated term. Gun violence against women is just a marketing angle, designed to prey upon emotion.

If Giffords actually wanted to save lives, she’d advocate for more women to receive firearms training, for more women to own guns, and for more women to get carry concealed carry permits to defend their lives and the lives of their children.

Career criminal picks the wrong residence

An armed man who allegedly broke into a Bellevue apartment was shot and killed Saturday night.

Police say one of the occupants of the apartment near East 19th Avenue and Main Street confronted 21-year-old Tyrell Dalia of Omaha, who was holding a handgun, and shot him just before 9 p.m.

Sean Sammons told WOWT 6 News that several of his friends were in the home when Dalia broke in. None of his friends were injured during the incident. “Makes me happy to know that none of them are injured or possibly dead. It’s the first time I’ve heard of something like this at all.”

Police said the homeowner used his own gun to defend himself. Investigators took a shot gun out of the home as part of their investigation.

On This Episode of Wrong Bank Assholes………….

A good guy with a gun………..

A Phoenix business owner saw a bank robbery beginning to unfold in the strip mall where he works and decided to take action to defend his neighbors. He grabbed his own gun, snatched the keys from the robber’s still running and undefended car, and laid in wait for the robbers as they left the store, toting a bin full of cash.

When they suspects emerged, the business owner opened fire .

Two armed suspects wearing masks entered the Desert Schools Credit Union near Cactus and Tatum around 3 p.m. and attempted to rob it, police said. A witness then opened fire on the suspects. It is not known if the suspects returned fire.

Authorities said one of the suspects was shot and transported to a local hospital where he died. The second suspect fled the bank and stole a vehicle from someone at gunpoint, damaging several cars as he fled.

That suspect struck a mini-van, which then ran into a wall near 44th Street and Thunderbird. Two people in the mini van were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The suspect was taken into custody.
