George Washington on Gun Control

"In all humor there is truth; and in all truth there is wisdom"


On this blog we have presented much truth through our White Paper entries.  And over the years we have collected both cartoons and profound statements about the issue of gun control and related subjects.  Here is the latest.

Gun Control 2019- The Debate Rages On

It is now August, 2019.  Three recent incidents have occurred where young men, clearly with mental issues, have shot and killed people in public places.  It has reignited the gun control debate on both sides.  But the debate is not fact-based, as our White Paper has been, instead it is being driven by emotions and knee jerk reactions.  As we've outlined, everyone in the debate has either a political interest and/or an economic interest in the business of gun control.  We've laid out all of the facts in our White Paper, you draw your own conclusions.

Now in 2016

Now in 2016

After all the research papers and articles I have written or reviewed, I can only say that before any future legislation is proposed, or especially voted on, this “White Paper” should be mandatory reading for all involved.  Gun control issues are too often emotionally driven, rather than fact driven.  Especially after high profile events involving special tragedies or children. As one political account noted, “Never waste a crisis moment.”
Such self-serving rhetoric should have no place in this debate. Balanced education about gun control issues should be demanded by both sides to allay the concerns of both pro and anti-gun proponents. And American citizens should be told the truth, not subjected to self-serving political rhetoric.  
Reading this “White Paper” would be a good start for all!

Spread the word that the truth is here.

Conclusion Continued: Legal Success in the Future


1.      Future legislation should be based on adequate research.
2.      Future legislation should target the offending population without adding unreasonable burdens to the law-abiding population.
3.      Any new legislation should include sufficient resources to properly train law enforcement personnel, prosecutors and judges in the new law, its purposes and goals.
4.      Existing loopholes should be evaluated [and closed] with a view toward strengthening the law as it applies to the offending population.

5.      A penalty for violating the law must be swift and sure if it is to be a deterrent to criminal conduct.

Currently, the criminal justice system in New York State is not meeting this challenge. Whether it is the fault of the law, law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, or a combination of the various segments, steps should be taken to ensure that the system meets the challenge before it.
