Trump: Gun Grabber

On the evening of Nov. 30, 2015, Adarius Montrells Sims of Birmingham, Alabama, was driving his gold Grand Am home. Tired after hanging out all night, he fell asleep at the wheel. The car crashed, and medics found Sims unconscious. After the crash, a police officer peering into the wreck spotted a .40 caliber pistol on the passenger-side floorboard. Police ran Sims’s name and saw he had two prior marijuana possession convictions, a record that made that gun illegal in Alabama. But Sims hadn’t hurt anyone and his record was nonviolent. So he was sent to a gun court rehabilitation program,...

Cop Kills Man

When police arrived after reports of a shooting over the weekend at a bar outside Chicago, witnesses say Jemel Roberson, a 26-year-old security guard who worked there, had already subdued the alleged assailant in the parking lot, pinning him to the ground. Adam Harris, who was at Manny's Blue Bar in Robbins at the time of the incident on Sunday, told WGN-TV that Roberson was holding "somebody on the ground with his knee in his back, with his gun in his back" when officers from neighboring Midlothian got there early Sunday. Midlothian Police Chief Daniel Delaney said that's when one of his...

How America’s Gun Violence Epidemic May Have Roots in Overseas War Zones

In recent months a string of school shootings in the United States has rekindled the debate over gun violence, its causes and what can be done to stop it. But amid endless talk of school shootings and AR-15s, a large piece of the puzzle has been left conspicuously absent from the debate. Contrary to the notion that mass murderers are at the heart of America’s gun violence problem, data from recent years reveals that the majority of gun deaths are self-inflicted. In 2015, suicides accounted for over 60 percent of gun deaths in the U.S., while homicides made up around 36 percent of that...

Video of Vegas Shooter Finally Released: Here’s How He Brought the Guns In

This article originally appeared at Anti-Media.    Las Vegas, NV — Newly released surveillance footage from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino shows that Stephen Paddock, the man who committed the worst mass shooting in modern American history, acted completely normal in the days leading up to the event. The footage, obtained by the New York Times and published Thursday, depicts the same unassuming loner hotel staff had come to know. Paddock, who lived just an hour away in Mesquite, Nevada, was a regular at Mandalay Bay. Over the course of several days prior to the shooting on...

Google Tried to Censor What Americans Can Buy Online — And It Totally Backfired

This article originally appeared at Anti-Media.    Very silently — and very temporarily — this week Google appeared to have chosen a side in the gun control debate in the wake of the recent school shooting in Florida that left 17 people dead. Disappointingly, that stance involved censorship of what shoppers using the corporation’s search engine could find online. On Tuesday morning, people shopping via Google began to notice that any search items related to the word “gun” or the category of firearms in general were coming back with zero results. If you were in the market for a glue...

TGIF: Overcoming Confirmation Bias on Guns

Confirmation bias is one of the great obstacles to making the practical case for liberty. People see in events what they want to see. I think of the joke about the person who planned to take his hyperactive dog on a train trip and asked his veterinarian for a tranquilizer. The vet mistakenly handed the person a stimulant. On the train he gave the dog the pill, prompting it to run madly up and down the aisle the entire trip. The embarrassed owner said to his seatmate, "Gosh, think what would have happened if I hadn't given the dog the tranquilizer!" We are all subject to this bias. The...
