Everytown petitions President Obama to spread manure.

So Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown has an online petition running that unsurprisingly is full of “mistakes.”

Everytown Petition

Let’s go one by one, shall we?
Remove exemptions that let dangerous people carry guns near our children’s schools.

The key here is “dangerous.” Notice that they are not using words like criminals or felons. So who are those dangerous people? No idea, but if I were to bet, it would be gun owners in general. Also notice that they are not asking to stop people from carry in  schools but  near schools, so I am guessing that they want that infamous 5,000 feet “safe zone” around schools which was stupid once before and it has not improved with age.

Make sure high-volume gun sellers become licensed dealers and are required to conduct background checks for all gun sales.

There is no way on hell Everytown does not know that being a “high-volume gun seller” without a Federal Firearms License is already illegal. This is nothing more than an outright lie to make the uninformed believe that any Joe out there can call Smith and Wesson and have a truckload of guns sent to their home to do a Garage Sale on the weekends.

Ensure that federal law enforcement notifies local law enforcement when dangerous criminals try to illegally buy guns at dealers in their community.

In order for this to happen, the Federal authorities should actually start to give a damn when a dangerous criminal attempts to buy a gun. A staggering 98.5% of Brady Background checks are not fully investigated and they convict only 1/20th of those “dangerous criminals.”

Help states that require background checks for all gun sales to enforce existing laws on the books.

I am guessing this is coming from the downfall in Colorado where the Sheriffs have told the Legislature to go pound sand since they do not have the money to either perform every BG Check or investigate possible violations (IE: Sting Operations.) Unfunded mandates usually end up in the legal trash bin and they are afraid that their “gain” may be overturned.

Don’t let convicted domestic abusers buy guns just because they’re not married to the person they abused.

Again, pure BS. This is in the instructions of ATF form 4473.
Everytown Petition Domestic Abuser 1According to legaldictionary.com:

Cohabitation.
A living arrangement in which an unmarried couple lives together in a long-term relationship that resembles a marriage.

 

 

 

So I will call this another case where Everytown is lying by saying that it is not covered by the law when indeed it is but the uninformed does not know.

Get ready folks, we are seeing the same tactics we saw under the Clinton Administration to pass the Assault Weapons Ban: Outright lies to be unchallenged by the Media and assorted Useful Idiots.

    1. Yes, but it’s only (maybe) three or four of the 88. And that includes justifiable homicides by police.

      It ends up being a very small number because a) it’s a minority of people and households who keep a defensive gun ready and handy; b) the vast majority of DGUs (defensive gun uses) end with the criminal fleeing or stopping with no shots fired; c) a solid portion of shots fired under stress will miss the target; and d) IF shots are fired and IF the criminal is hit, he usually flees and seeks treatment (i.e. he lives).

      Getting all these “minority” factors to line up leaves a very small number.

  1. I have a somewhat different take on the Everytown nonsense, and I posted it on their page. It is currently the first comment below the article:

    Well, let’s see. In the order named: “Remove exemptions that let dangerous people carry guns near our children’s schools”: There are no laws in existence that will prevent dangerous people from carrying guns near schools, and law-abiding citizens carrying guns near schools protect the children.
    “Make sure high-volume gun sellers become licensed dealers and are required to conduct background checks for all gun sales”: No authority is delegated to the federal government OR to the First Liberal Enemy Agent (FLEA) infesting our White House to license gun dealers in the first place, and background checks violate our 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 10th Amendment rights.
    “Ensure that federal law enforcement notifies local law enforcement when dangerous criminal try to illegally buy guns at dealers in their community.” No authority is delegated to the federal government to monitor, oversee, examine, take notice of, infringe, or in any way interfere with lawful transactions in the market place relating to firearms or anything else, and the federal government is prohibited from exercising powers not delegated.
    “Help States that require background checks for all gun sales to enforce existing laws on the books.” No State has the authority to compel background checks in the absence of a warrant founded upon probable cause of criminal conduct, and States are prohibited from exercising authorities prohibited to the States by the Constitution.
    “Don’t let convicted domestic abusers buy guns just because they’re not married to the person they abused.” Neither the federal government nor that Marxist chieftain infesting our White House has any lawful authority to “let” or “don’t let” anyone buy guns whether they are married or not.
    Ya see, folks, in this here country we got a thing called the “Rule of Law” that prohibits adam henries in public office from interfering with the rights of the people, and that’s why we are the first nation in fifty centuries (in forever!) to make private rights trump the arbitrary whims of kings and princes and neighborhood warlords and socialists.
    We will not comply with federal color of law, and that twerp in the White House is not a monarch and we will not do what he says. Have a nice day.
