In the aftermath of the recent Florida high school shooting, the hand-wringing gun grabbers are at it again. They are wasting no time in exploiting the deaths of innocent people by pointing their finger at GUNS as the cause of the carnage and wanting to ban them.
The gun grabbers are DEAD WRONG. And anybody who continues to place the blame on guns, instead of attacking the REAL cause of these mass shootings, has blood on their hands from EVERY mass shooting since Columbine.
WHY? Because whenever you are trying to correct a bad statistic, you must analyze ALL of the factors that may be causing the unacceptable problem you are trying to correct. There may be several factors, but ONE, is the RIGHT TARGET to attack, and when attacked, will cause an immediate correction of the problem.
Find the RIGHT Target, attack it, and the bad statistic immediately and positively responds.
Attack the wrong target and the bad situation will not improve, and in many cases gets worse.
In analyzing statistics of mass shootings, there are several factors (targets) that have been talked about as the cause of the shootings, including access to guns, lack of proper mental health care, violence in movies, television, and video games.
The danger in lumping all of these factors into the "cause" of mass shootings is that it appeases the public and tricks them into thinking "something has been done" but it hides the RIGHT target and mass shootings not only do not stop, they become more frequent and deadlier, as we have witnessed yet again, this time in Florida.
Isn't that EXACTLY what we have seen over the last 40 years? We have picked the wrong target, because had we selected the right target and attacked it 40 years ago, mass shootings would have stopped. But they have not stopped, they have become more frequent and more deadly.
So what have we targeted as a society to try to stop these mass murders that have clearly been the wrong target?
Guns are the wrong target.
Because prior to these shootings, there were just as many guns per capita and there was unrestricted access to semiautomatic weapons, even for young adults and kids. But even more evidence that guns are the wrong target is the undeniable fact that in towns, cities, schools, and shopping malls, where guns have been severely restricted and in some cases outright banned, the statistic of murder, HAS NOT DROPPED, IT HAS INCREASED!
Even greater evidence that proves guns are the wrong target is found in towns, cities, schools and shopping malls where law abiding, responsible citizens are allowed to carry concealed weapons. In those areas where guns are the least restricted we see the statistic of murder and violent crime HAS DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY.
So if the RIGHT TARGET IS NOT GUNS, what is the right target?
Well, let's first look at the other targets being offered up... Violence in TV, Movies and Video Games.
If you are old enough to remember when America did not have kids walking into schools and killing their classmates with guns, then you remember when you could walk to school with your .22 rifle because you were on the school's rifle team, and prop your rifle up against the cabinet in the back of your classroom. You also likely remember the TV shows and movies you watched as a kid, as well as the games you played with all the other kids...
You watched westerns and war movies that had lots of killing in them. You played Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians.
Remember those games? If you had the money, you had toy cap guns to use and if you didn't have the money you made toy weapons out of sticks or whatever you could fashion to look like a Tommy Gun or lever action rifle or bow and arrow. And yes, you killed the bad guy every chance you could get. And yes, every now and then someone you shot said you didn't shoot him and it might lead to an argument, a wrestling match or a few punches thrown to settle it. BUT YOU NEVER, EVER THOUGHT OF GRABBING THE REAL GUN that was unlocked and readily accessible in your closet at home, and taking it to school to shoot your classmates.
The TV, movie industry, and video game industry has placed warning labels and age restrictions on violent shows and games, but it has not made a difference in mass shootings. WHY? Because such restrictions, were the WRONG TARGET!
Had that step of restricting violent media been the right target, we would have seen a positive change, a decrease in mass shootings, and we have not.
WHY have we NOT seen a change in mass shootings after restricting violent media from our youth? Because kids and young adults KNOW THE DIFFERENCE between a violent TV show, movie or video game and real life, just as you and I did 40 or more years ago when we played, Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians, and GI Joe.
So that leaves improving mental health care as the only remaining target that has been talked about as a solution to stop mass shootings. Believe it or not, lawmakers are suggesting the cause of these mass shootings is the inability of the State to involuntarily commit people who show signs of mental illness!
Do you see the inherent insanity in such a target? With a government already gone wild in stripping freedoms and privacy after 9/11, now there are actually lawmakers talking about increasing the power of the government to involuntarily commit (that means against your will) citizens to a mental institution! Remember the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
These are the same lawmakers who champion gun control laws and banning violent media content as the solution to stop mass shootings. They say that due to lack of funding, we have released so many "crazy" people from mental institution into the streets, which has caused the increase in mass shootings.
Really? How many mass shooters have been homeless, mental derelicts who lacked a psychiatrist treating them and prescribing them medication? NOT ONE.
So if the RIGHT TARGET to stop mass shootings is NOT GUNS, and it is NOT VIOLENT MEDIA, and it is NOT MORE MENTAL HEATLH CARE, then WHAT IS IT?
To find the RIGHT TARGET look to see what CHANGES took place in society when mass shootings first began and what has increased in society directly and proportionally to the increase in mass shootings, even during the same time when strong actions and restrictions against guns and violent media were being implemented to stop the mass shootings.
The answer, the common denominator, the RIGHT TARGET in the ever increasing number of mass shootings was and continues to be the creation of strong, mind-altering, psychiatric drugs by the pharmaceutical companies and their systematic pushing of these drugs to our children and youth through our public school system, and the endless assault of prescribing anti-depression medication for adults. These drugs create the monsters who are killing their parents, teachers and schoolmates and the public at large.
Let me make a bold statement here: When the medical authorities complete their blood chemistry on the Florida high school mass murderer, THE WILL FIND PSYCH DRUGS in his system.
Bold statement? Not really. EVERY MASS SHOOTER SINCE COLUMBINE HAS BEEN ON PSYCH DRUGS!
When I recognized psych drugs being pushed on our youth as the right target after the Columbine shootings. I stated it then and I have stated it after every mass shooting since and guess what, EVERY SHOOTER has been under psychiatric care, taking these powerful, mind-altering drugs that are scientifically proven to create homicidal and suicidal urges in those being prescribed these drugs!
It is the RIGHT TARGET. Ban the prescription and distribution of these strong, mind-altering drugs and as a society we will not have drug induced assassins killing innocent people.
Of course to do so, would take multi-billions of dollars in ridiculous profits from the pharmaceutical companies who through their relentless "lobbying" in Washington, DC have managed to not only stay in business when all evidence points at their product as the root cause of these mass shootings, they also convinced Congress years ago to pass legislation allowing the blatant advertising of antidepressant drugs on TV, radio, Internet, newspapers and magazines.
Now you understand one of the reasons why members of Congress, who receive huge political contributions from the pharmaceutical industry, avoid attacking the RIGHT TARGET, psych drugs, and continue to point fingers at the wrong target... your guns.
The latest shooting is no different. It is not about hate or easy access to guns. It is about the anti-social, psychopathic effects of psychiatric drugs that are irresponsibly forced on society from the cradle to the grave through pharmaceutical marketing budgets that are larger than the gross national product of many third world countries and the drug pushing psychiatrists and medical doctors who prescribe them.
My efforts to spread the truth that it is NOT guns, but rather psych drugs that are doing the killing is being heard and more main stream media sources are finally spreading the truth with me.
See this article http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/big-list-of-drug-induced-killers/ and help me spread the truth by forwarding this e-mail to all on your lists and asking them to do the same.
If we truly want to stop mass shootings, we have to ban the prescription and distribution of these strong, mind-altering drugs and as a society we will not have drug induced assassins killing innocent people. At the same time, we must strengthen those aspects of society that have statistically provided a positive reduction in violent crime. Namely, allow the law abiding responsible citizenry to carry concealed weapons to protect against mass shootings.
New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles... the big cities, with the strictest gun control have the highest murder and violent crime rates. Allow law abiding, responsible citizen to be trained to carry a concealed weapon and those same cities with the highest murder and crime rates will see an immediate and permanent reduction in violent crime and murder as all the other towns and cities across America have seen when they allowed their citizens to carry concealed weapons.
I have been preaching this for years. Direct our lawmakers to the RIGHT TARGET. IT'S NOT GUNS!
Others are now seeing it too. Help spread the word.
Watch this video from Citizens Committee on Human Rights. They have done the hard research and now say the same thing I said over 15 years ago...
Then see what Michael Moore, the Darling of the Liberal Left, Anti-Gun Media now has to say about the cause of Columbine. Medical Doctors and Psychiatrists Now Admit Connections Between Psych Drugs and Homicidal and Suicidal Actions of Children and Teens:
Fox National News reporter Douglas Kennedy exposes the link between psychiatric drugs and school shootings:
And here is another that explains WHY the FDA is hiding the drug relation to the mass shootings:
Here is more information to help spread the truth...
And never forget what gun control is REALLY about. It is not about controlling guns, it is about controlling people.
Lawmakers who want to disarm you really want to control you. History is full of governments who first registered guns, then confiscated guns, then rounded up and systematically killed those who the government deemed were trouble makers...
170 million of them!
Don't think it could not happen here. Look at the freedom and liberties we have lost since 9/11. Sandy Hook Elementary is just another scapegoat to take another step at controlling the American people.
After every mass shooting, we hear the unenlightened politicians and knee-jerk liberals wailing, "If we can save just ONE life by getting guns off the street, then it is worth passing stricter gun control..."
Well, the next time you hear that from anybody, I want you to respond with: "Over 170 million people would disagree with you... if they could. You can't talk with them, because they are dead! They were killed by their own governments after strict gun control disarmed them."
Then I want you to hand them a copy of Innocents Betrayed, an award-winning documentary DVD that I co-produced with Aaron Zelman and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO).
You have probably seen the e-mails that float around the Internet that look like this:
Well, I co-produced Innocents Betrayed because it dramatically and irrefutably documents the direct connections between government gun control schemes and the subsequent genocides that have taken the lives of over 170 million people!
This is a must-see DVD because it contains documented, proven facts of history that even the most ardent gun control advocate cannot deny.
Watch a short trailer of this riveting and educational film. Then order your own copies to share with your family, friends and co-workers. All proceeds go directly to JPFO and assist in their efforts to educate Americans and expose the fallacy of gun control.
I personally put my money where my mouth is to co-produce the DVD because the message is so important to the future of our country and our offspring. The dangers of gun control are real. Innocents Betrayed exposes them in such an undeniable manner in this DVD that you simply must have it in any well-stocked information arsenal for sharing with anyone who thinks otherwise.
And until our government wakes up and bans pharmaceutical advertising in all forms of media, and the medical community takes appropriate responsibility and action against those doctors who are creating these mass killing monsters through the prescription of known, violence inducing drugs, please consider getting armed and trained. With 1 in 5 American taking psych drugs, the next killings could be at your school, church or workplace!
Here is an opportunity for you to secure our 5 Day Defensive Handgun Course, 30 State Concealed Weapon Permit and our entire set of 7 training manuals (over $2700 in total value) for only $200.

I have know Dawn for many years and follow her weekly letters about her new life in Israel.
Dear family and friends,
I am so proud to be an American and an Israeli. This week has been a time of miracles for Israel. Less than a week before Chanukah is to be celebrated, also known as the "Festival of Miracles", Jerusalem was finally declared the capital of the modern State of Israel. Mazal tov! Jerusalem has been the "undivided " eternal capital of Israel and the Jewish people for over 3,000 years.
Although a bi-partisan US Congress enacted the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, which provided for the relocation of the US Embassy in Israel to Israel's capital of Jerusalem, for over 20 years not one US President complied with the law to relocate the embassy to Jerusalem. That delay of 20+ years did nothing to promote peace in the region. To the contrary, it encouraged the Palestinians to make more and more outrageous demands.
Thank you President Trump for having the cojones to stand up for what is legally and morally correct. He said, "Israel is a sovereign nation, with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital". In fact, all branches of Israeli government are located in Jerusalem, including Israel's parliament The Knesset, the Supreme Court, and the residences of the Prime Minister and President of Israel, as well as government buildings and ministries.
It is appropriate that President Trump made his announcement just days before Chanukah. Like in ancient times when some Jews chose to appease their Greek-Syrian oppressors and assimilate into a secular anti-religious Hellenistic lifestyle rather than fight for their freedoms, there will be those today touting appeasement because the Palestinians have threatened violence. What else is new? And like the miracles of Chanukah, it is a miracle that Israel's opposition parties and some of President Trump's greatest foes have joined in praising President Trump for this momentous announcement. Perhaps there will be peace after all.
For years the slogan "land for peace" has been nothing other than a form of appeasement to a people who have no intention of making peace with Israel. Yet despite attempts by many left wing Israeli politicians to appease the Palestinians by complying with most of their demands such as land transfers, unilateral prisoner exchanges, and sometimes perilous security risks, "most" is not enough for them. The Palestinians want it "all" or they resort to violence. Appeasement is no solution and only encourages further oppression and violence. A perfect example was when England's Neville Chamberlain appeased Hitler, yemach shemo, and that led to World War II.
Seventy years ago when US President Harry Truman was warned not to recognize the modern state of Israel, there were also Arab threats of violence, but he stood up for Israel. Despite the threatened and actual violence, like the miracles of Chanukah, the State of Israel survived the wars against it. Israel will survive this too.
Hamas claimed the other day that recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would lead to an "escalation" of the "Jerusalem intifada". That in itself is an admission that there is an intifada in existence already. And Abbas' Fatah recently signed a reconciliation agreement with Hamas. What other than violence can be expected from a Palestinian culture that glorifies terrorists, pays terrorists and their families to commit terror, teaches their children hatred and violence in schools, summer camps , on TV and in books and magazines, and incites their people to kill and maim innocent Israeli children sleeping in their beds?
Every year at the end of our Passover Seder and at the end of the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, Jews throughout the world say, "Next year in Jerusalem". That is why it is absurd when Palestinians and the UN claim Jews have no connection to Jerusalem. In fact, Israel's President Rivlin is a 7th generation Jerusalemite. Happy Chanukah.

Reports indicate this Killer in Texas purchased guns "legally"! However, looks like his military dishonorable discharge after serving 12 month in military jail should have blocked his access. A twelve month prison sentence should make him a "felon" and as such not able to legally buy or possess guns.
If this is not the case it should be!

There has been a strong divide in the US over gun control and every time there is a tragic event like what is unfolding in Las Vegas, those who want to restrict gun ownership step up to the plate. They don't even wait for the victims to get to the hospital before they jump on the band wagon! Take Hillary's comment about how bad this would have been if the guns had silencers as an example. Let me tell you an AR 15 is very laud and a silencer does make it silent! Then we have those claiming that it is "White males" who are responsible, "luckily most country music fans votes for Trump anyway." How RACIST is that? Of course, there are the majority of early callers, who want "gun control"! What does that mean? In my opinion that means take guns away from everybody cancel the 2ND Amendment. They call for rigorous back ground checks. How does that prevent these tragic events? I am not convinced such checks would stop them. We have seen that in cities like Chicago that have banded gun ownership, that the gun death body count in that city rivals the Las Vegas tragedy on a weekly basis.
We currently have laws that restrict the private ownership of true assault weapons like the military's M-16. An assault weapon is defined as having a switch that allows the user to go from semi-auto fire to full-auto fire. Currently the adapter for an AR-15 known as a "bump stock" can legally be purchased. Congress should consider legislation to ban that device as consistent with the current band on private ownership of assault weapons.
The real issue we face is how to stop these tragic events. Better gun laws will not solve that problem. The London tragedy did not involve guns, but targeted people attending a large public event using a bomb. The London subway bomb could have been bigger than the Las Vegas shooting had the bomb not been a dud. So as you hear the various calls for gun control measures, ask yourselves "How will this keep mass killers from being successful." So far what we are hearing from Las Vegas is that all the weapons and ammo were legally purchased. How would new "gun control laws" change that situation?
Bottom line we need to wait and see all the Las Vegas evidence about what happened and why it happened. We know he had many weapons in his room, but we don't know how many were actually used. Luckily, he killed himself so we don't have to wait for a trial for the truth to be told.
PS: he also had the ability to make bombs and could have easily used those as his weapon and set it off in the garage of the hotel. Please keep in mind here that the guns did not kill these people a person did.

President Trump was elected to solve our Economic problems, by creating jobs, and securing our borders. I understand the concerns for the many here illegally for "years" justice and equity needs to be addressed. But we need to secure the borders and establish first policies for the future! We can sit and debate the need for a wall but I would suggest we look closely at what has been taking place in Europe. Hordes of displaced people are flooding into Europe, they bring their own ideas about civilization and religion and appear to have no intention to assimilate into the existing culture. I don't think that is what most Americans want, after all most of us are ourselves one or two generations away from "new arrival status"! Our families have adopted the American system and culture. We have of course introduced what was good about our homelands and this can be seen in the large variety of foods we now enjoy among other things.
If we assume that the past twenty years or so that there has not been a policy in our country as to what we want to see in those who want to come here, that should change. POTUS has suggested a frame work for choosing who we want to settle in our country. If this needs to be debated that is a great American tradition and we should get to work on that ASAP. Meanwhile, we must secure the borders. What is taking place in South America only reinforces my position. Government instability leads to revolts and mass displacement of people, as we are now witness to in the near east and the flooding of Europe with these displaced people. A much better solution would and should be to shelter "in place" until hostilities end then repatriate, but then many in Europe felt guilty somehow for the problem.
In Venezuela the alarm is being sounded. Are we ready? No!!!
