Today’s news:

American firearms need regulation

TimesLedger Newspapers

The Second Amendment calls for regulation, not a blanket absence of common sense.

We have more regulation and keep better track of our cars than we do our guns.

It is time for strict national gun control and an end to the ludicrous grip of the gun lobby.

Yes Michael, lets let tyrants like Bloomberg have all the guns and lets turn a blind eye when the so called Dept of homeland security purchases 2 billion hollow point bullets for internal domestic use! MOre people die from hammers and baseball bats, lets regulate them first!

Happy New Year to both of you and all readers.

Mr.Chimenti, Pay no mind to this Lou clown. In last week's Bayside Times he did a similar incoherent rant on a letter of identical sentiment to yours by a Mr. Zizelis. I hope you both and those of like conviction continue to speak out against unregulated firearm sales and ownership. Gunaholics, the infamous NRA and their Lobbyists combined with a unlimited bribery fund are a tough gang to beat. And the there are the Lou quack claques.

Woman Defends Home and Children by Shooting Intruder 5 Times

In another victory for responsible gun-owners, a mother defended herself and her two children using a firearm after a burglar broke into their home this past Friday.

It happened in Loganville, Georgia, about 35 miles east of Atlanta. “The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman,” reported WSBTV.com.
The unfamiliar man, who the woman initially perceived to be a solicitor, began ringing the door bell several times. The 37-year-old woman dialed her husband at work, who told her to “Get the kids and hide” as he proceeded to call 911, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Next, the woman gathered her 9-year-old twins and hightailed it to a crawlspace as the burglar broke into the home using a crowbar and began rummaging through the occupants’ belongings.
Eventually, the intruder was able to locate the crawlspace where the family was hiding. “The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Sheriff Chapman told reporters.
The woman fired all six of her revolver’s rounds, missing only once. According to the Sheriff, “She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting.”

“’The guy’s face down, crying,’ the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again,” reported AJC.com. At that point, the woman grabbed her children and fled to a neighbor’s home.
The literally banged-up criminal managed to survive being shot five times, including a shot to the face and another to his neck, and was able to flee the house in a vehicle, but later “crashed into a wooded area and collapsed in a nearby driveway,” the Sheriff said. He added that they found him on the ground saying, “Help me. I’m close to dying.”
The woman’s husband, Donnie Herman, told WSB that he was proud of his wife and her quick reaction to the intruder, saying, “My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as responsible, prepared gun owner.”
The suspected thief, 32-year-old Paul Ali Slater, had a lengthy rap sheet that included a February 2012 battery charge. The man has been arrested six times since 2008, according to WSB, and will face additional charges for burglary.
The Federal Government says, “Look at these deaths, not these.”
If gun-grabbers have their way, we as Americans would not be able to defend our homes, ourselves, or our families from possibly harmful intruders, as the lady in this story did.
Although revolvers are not the target of this round of proposed anti-gun laws, this type of legislation greases the skids for an eventual all-out gun ban by conditioning the public to accept guns as “dangerous.”
The frantic race to secure laws further restricting the Second Amendment is a perfectly timed reaction to the events in Newtown, but makes little sense when viewed in a logical manner.
If we want to talk about a senseless violence that is killing children, let us look no further than the Obama administration’s own drone warfare program that has secretly killed scores of children and other innocents in countries like Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
According to a report in November conducted by Stanford and New York universities, “between 2,562 and 3,325 people have been killed since the strikes in Pakistan began in 2004,” reported UK’s Daily Mail.
“The report said of those, up to 881 were civilians, including 176 children. Only 41 people who had died had been confirmed as ‘high-value’ terrorist targets.”
Now you see, this is not only an attack on the Second Amendment, but on the public’s intelligence.
It’s about only presenting one side of an argument, and having it be parroted ad nauseum by hundreds of mainstream news sources. This is governmental mind control and opinion shaping at its best.
Let there be no doubt, those asking for Americans to be disarmed rely on firearms for their own protection, and many even pack heat themselves. Their children go to schools that are protected by armed guards while the option isn’t even on the table for John Q. Public.
Infowars.com recently produced a video response to Hollywood’s disgusting Demand a Plan video pointing out the real culprit in millions of deaths that have taken place worldwide: democide, or death by government.

Beverly from Bayside says:
Good old Mr. Lou is back again with his twisted logic. He unkowingly with his example of his exception, proves the rule. What is so hard to get into one's skull that more firearms = more deaths by firearm. America is number 4 in deaths by firearms thropughout the world only behind South Africa, Columbia and Thailand. This is the embarrasing company intelectually on a par with Mr. Lou.

When compared with advanced industrial countries such as England, Germany, Japan and a host of others we incur almost 100 times more deaths yearly by firearms. those are facts, not exceptions.

Lou from Bayside says:
Yes Beverly lets leave all the guns in the hands of Obama and Bloomberg then everyone will be nice and safe! When you and all the other bag ladies are being herded into cattle cars you will wish you had a gun!How about all the children killed in Pakistan by US drones! Over 165 the past year alone. Who cries for those children killed by our government! The rights of Americans to bear arms shall not be infringed! You deserve to be in a gulag in Siberia!
