The results of Maryland’s high capacity magazine ban are in. The law totally and utterly failed to reduce the number of criminals carrying magazines with more than 10 rounds. In fact, the number of crooks doing so, has actually increased.

Don’t expect this complete and utter failure to deter progressives from continuing to push nonsensical gun control laws in the future. Maryland joined New York in the sham of “ballistic finger printing,” after both states wasted millions of dollars building a data base of shell casings, they both admitted that the databases had solved zero crimes. The progressive state leaders shrugged their shoulders and moved on to the next gun control scam.

The fine folks over at Bearing Arms Recap the miserable failure of the Maryland ban:

“Together, with a strong coalition of advocates, and the people of Maryland who overwhelmingly support policies to reduce gun violence, we’ve chosen to take action by advancing strategies that work to save lives,” O’Malley said at the time.

But in the four years since implementing the expanded gun laws, Baltimore police continue to see an uptick in criminals carrying the banned magazines.

“We’re dealing with absolute criminals who want as much weaponry as possible when they’re going after their targets,” T.J. Smith, a Baltimore police spokesperson told The Trace. “They’re not carrying .22s. They’re carrying the big guns that have these high capacities.”

Sadly, the media could care less that magazine bans have been proven to be totally ineffective. Nothing to see here, move along.

Tucker Carlson asked a gun grabber a simple question about so-called “assault weapons.” A simple question that gun control advocates can never answer. The result is a lot of deflection, but no straight-forward answer. After all, answering this question honestly pretty much destroys this guys narrative.

Watch he squirm below:

 

The reality is that the vast majority of homicides are not committed with so-called “assault weapons.” Even blunt objects like bats and hammers kill more people each year. Chicago banned ALL HANDGUNS, not just so-called “assault weapons”, and they still have record high crime. The federal government banned so-called “assault weapons” from 1994-2004 and crime is lower today (in most places) than it was during the ban.

A ban on so-called “assault weapons” can’t lower the crime rate by any measurable degree, the reason is simple: very few crimes are being committed with such weapons in the first place. That’s “common sense” liberal gun control in a nutshell. The key to lower crime is to ban guns that law abiding citizens aren’t using to commit crimes, while completely ignoring the enforcement of existing laws designed to take guns that actually are used in crimes from the criminals who possess them.

Should we stop and frisk suspected gang members acting suspiciously on the street corner and confiscate their illegal guns? NO THAT’S RACIST! How about following up on an insane person, like the Sandy Hook shooter, who is on record trying to buy a gun illegally, should we do anything about crazy people failing NICS checks? NO, WE DON’T HAVE THE RESOURCES FOR THAT, INSTEAD LETS GO AFTER 80 MILLION LAW ABIDING CITIZENS. The struggle continues…

The Huffington Post is one of the most popular progressive propaganda websites among left leaning low-information voters. In a recent article, they took the dangerous step of exposing their readers to half-truths instead of the usual full fledged lies.

Check out this tasty morsel from the Huffington Post:

The 1994 assault weapons ban became only the third piece of gun control legislation approved since 1968, but massive resistance left the law riddled with so many exemptions it was basically useless.

Now that the election is over progressives seem to be dropping the insane lie that Bill Clinton’s so-called AWB “saved the children.” Now they can publicly admit that the law did nothing for public safety. They claim it didn’t work because it didn’t ban enough guns. The upshot here is that progressives are at least acknowledging that the ’94 ban didn’t work.

Progressives are demanding more so-called “Assault Weapons Bans,” and next time around they want to ban virtually all modern firearms. In the same breath, they complain that the NRA scares it’s members into thinking that liberals want to ban most modern firearms (which is exactly what liberals want to do).

The never ending catch 22 here is that virtually any modern semi-auto has the fire power to carry out a mass shooting. A quick glance at the polls shows that support for a blanket semi-auto ban is extremely low. With nothing left but contradictory verbal gymnastics, the Huffington Post, is in a tough spot. It’s fun to watch them squirm.

ar-15-pistol-with-braceA new poll shows what a losing issue the so-called Assault Weapons ban is. Never before have so many people been against it!

The so-called assault weapons ban has always been the crack-cocaine of political strategy. Leftists who support the AWB exchange a short term political gain for a long term loss.

In the heat of the moment politicians propose utterly nonsensical solutions to gruesome crimes. Hysterical people want the government to do something, even it that something is totally irrational. After the irrational laws have been passed progressive voters quickly forget about the nonsensical law they just passed. Whatever bump in the polls the progressive big city politician got from his worthless gun law quickly fades.

Hop over to rural America and the anger over such laws doesn’t dissipate. Nearly half a decade after N.Y. State passed it’s infamous S.A.F.E act (one of the most radical gun control laws in American history) the country side is still covered in anti-S.A.F.E act signs. People opposed to these irrational laws quickly become political activist, they organize and fight back.

Progressives can’t match the enthusiasm of the NRA or GOA, because one of the first steps in becoming an activist is to learn basic facts about the issue you are fighting for. As soon as a progressive takes that first step they quickly discover that the laws they support are totally insane.

Imagine some poor progressive who wants to learn why “pistol grips” threaten the safety of our children. After five seconds of internet research he discovers that there is no logical reason to think that an AR-15 with a pistol grip is anymore dangerous than one with a universal grip. One must be totally ignorant of what a bayonet lug is, in order to believe that banning  bayonet lugs on rifles will protect children from getting shot.

Read it and weep liberals: (From the Federalist)

Bill Clinton used to blamed his support of gun control for major midterm losses that the Democrats suffered during the 90’s. He was right, so-called assault weapons bans are the crack-cocaine of politicians. Whatever short term political gain Democrats got from so-called assault weapons bans are long gone and the white blue-collar Democrat voter is gone with them.

If you haven’t been graced with Steven Crowder’s humor, prepare thyself. In his newest video, Crowder takesSCCapture to the streets to expose the complete and total lack of knowledge that gun-banners have surrounding guns.

The people in this video are totally clueless as to what they are banning, all they know is that they want it banned.

This video is pretty funny:

 

Bravo to Steven Crowder for showing the public what gun rights advocates have already figured out. People who want to ban guns don’t know ANYTHING about guns.

Steven Crowder explains the rationale for the video here:

Buzzwords like “assault weapon” and “semi-automatic” seem to be all the rage. But what do they mean? More importantly, what do the people pushing for “common sense” gun control and weapon bans think they mean?

I hope this funny video actually gives you hope for America. Even though the ignorance shown by many of the people in this video might be appalling, keep in mind that some of these folks just need a little education about guns. Some anti-gun folks are not hostile to the Second Amendment, rather, they have been fooled into thinking that machine guns are legal.

We can win hearts and minds simply by sharing the truth and fighting ignorance.  We need to target people who believe the “weapons of war” lie spread by the left, some of these people can be converted.
