Shapiro: The Left Bullies the NRA

By Ben Shapiro

On Christmas Eve, seven people were shot in the city of Chicago. The media made little mention of the shootings, since they're now routine in Chicago -- the city has seen some 500 shootings in 2012 alone. The vast majority of the shooters are black, and the vast majority of the victims are black. Many of the victims are under the age of 18: Anton Sanders, 15, shot on Jan. 20; Deshun Winfert, 15, shot on Feb. 5; Damion Rolle, 14, shot on Feb. 21; George Howard and Albert Guyton, both 15, shot on Feb. 27 and Feb. 28; the list goes on. A few are under age 10. You've never heard of any of them.

But when an evil white person with a history of mental instability shoots up a school, killing 20 children, most of whom were white, the media is suddenly concerned with gun control.

Perhaps that's because the media is racist. Or perhaps it's something else. If the media pays attention to the shootings in Chicago, it will have to talk about the fact that Chicago is heavily gun controlled. It will have to discuss the fact that guns are illegally flowing into areas of heavy gun violence. And it will have to talk about the impact of social ills like single motherhood, gang recruitment and poor public education.

Instead, the media focuses on Sandy Hook, Aurora and Columbine. Focusing on such statistically aberrant scenarios rather than the more widespread gun violence that plagues our cities allows the media to target one of its most hated groups: the National Rifle Association.

This is what the left does: they pick a target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it. They use individual cases as a baton to wield against groups they hate. The Trayvon Martin case was used as a club against the American Legislative Exchange Council for their support of "Stand Your Ground" laws -- even though George Zimmerman never claimed "Stand Your Ground." The war on women was used as a club against Komen for the Cure -- even though Komen cares for more women than Planned Parenthood ever will. The left uses specific cases to destroy important institutions. It makes their future battles far easier.

That's what they've done here. The left's attack on the NRA is ludicrous. Neither the Sandy Hook massacre perpetrator, Adam Lanza, nor his mother, Nancy Lanza, was a member. The state of Connecticut has long rejected the NRA's legislative influence. The NRA takes zero -- zero -- tax dollars. Yet somehow, the NRA has been targeted as the root of all evil.

Why? Because the NRA represents the strongest single proponent of gun rights in America. And if the left can use Sandy Hook to bash the NRA, to make it unpalatable to the American public, they will. That's why the execrable Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC spouted that the NRA had "blood on its hands" despite any evidence to support that proposition. That's why Piers Morgan of CNN labeled NRA head Wayne LaPierre "dim-witted" and "dangerous" for suggesting that schools ought to have armed police, but said nothing when Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said the same thing. David Gregory of NBC was only too happy to bash LaPierre over that proposed policy, but send his kids to a school with 11 armed security guards.

So what does that have to do with Chicago versus Sandy Hook? The media knows that in all shooting scenarios, the conversation quickly polarizes into two positions: ban guns or discuss other myriad social and legal issues that lead to shootings. In communities plagued by high levels of social ills like Chicago, the second position is the more obvious one. In cases of placid communities getting shot up by a nutcase, the left can talk gun bans more easily.

And they can label the NRA the culprit more easily, too. When gang members shoot each other in Chicago, it's obvious to everyone that there are no NRA members involved. When people in Connecticut own guns, the media has made the case that they must be NRA members, even if they aren't. And so the NRA, with no relation to Sandy Hook, becomes the problem.

It's far harder to stop Sandy Hook than it is to stop violence in Chicago. But the left doesn't like the possible solutions in Chicago. They prefer to destroy their competition. So the shootings in Chicago will continue. So, in all likelihood, will incidents like Sandy Hook, thanks in large part to the left's focus on destroying its enemies rather than preventing acts of evil.

    I grew up in the Chicago area and remember well when one of my best buddies who was one of two of an original platoon that came home alive from Vietman with the sole desire to become a Chicago policeman. Two weeks into sevice he was shot dead while writing a traffic ticket in front of Cabrini Green by a 16 year old peice of hatefule human garbage. If even the police become targets in the city of former gun control where for years the citizens were left defenseless just who can survive in the land of Lincoln run by a corrupt government who thinks they can spend your money better than you and can protect you faster than you can protect yourself when confronted with the dark side of the human condition left unrestrained by an unarmed civilian population.

      I could be wrong, but I think the murders in Chicago out number those in Afganistan. I could be wrong, but wasn,t obama the senator from Illinois? I could be wrong but hasn’t the whole world gone crazy? Take the weapons away from people who have them legally to protect themselves because you can’t take them away from the ones who have them illegally.
      As you mentioned Chicago has a big gun control law that has done only one thing, make it safe only for thye criminal and dangerous for the citizen.
      Where is the logic in this stupidity?

      inluminatuo,
      Turns out that we’re homies. I spent of my school years in Chicago and suburbs, but like to say that I “grew up” in RVN. I’m sure you get the distinction. When I got back, not having a clue as to what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, I drove a Yellow cab for a few months in the city as the schedule was loose and I was pretty much on my own with plenty of time to think. I drove all over the city, maintained my situational awareness, and tried to be selective about whom I picked up. It was dicey at times and I was never attacked or robbed, but got stiffed a couple of times.

      Many years later, I was the object of the exercise of an armed robbery in my shop in the northern suburbs. I was 12′ away from my pistol and outnumbered. I think of it as my contribution to the United Negro College Fund–I gave the office. It was a bad situation, which worked out better than it could have.

      One of the reasons I left Illinois for the ol’ West about 25 years ago was the Draconian gun laws. I even wrote to my elected officials about it and told them if they didn’t change the laws I would be taking my business elsewhere. The other reason was having to wear a space suit to walk my dog with the -83F w/windchill off the lake. Never looked back and don’t miss it at all.

      You North or South side?

      It is easy to buy semi-automatic assault guns because they are being produced in large numbers. If fewer were produced for the private market, it would be harder to get them — legally or illegally. So many are produced because it is legal to buy them. It is legal to buy them because decades of NRA lobbying. So yes, the NRA does have responsibility for the ready availability of semi-automatic assault guns to the criminal and the mentally deranged.

      Is there a single reported incident of a person defending themselves successfully against a criminal assault with a semi-automatic assault gun? I haven’t heard of one. We all have heard of reports of innocent people being gunned down with the semi-automatic assault guns that the NRA has worked so tirelessly to keep available on the private market.

      Why does the U.S. have so much more violent and gun crime than European countries (or, for that matter, many Asian countries)? If you don’t think it’s a matter of laws, how do you explain it? Do you think Americans are just so much more violent than people in other countries?

      “Is there a single reported incident of a person defending themselves successfully against a criminal assault with a semi-automatic assault gun? I haven’t heard of one” – cborgers

      Only tens of thousands every year

      You have to ask yourself WHY you have not heard of a single one

      Some thing have always found interesting is how one gets their information.

      In 1996 Apple had less than 3 percent of the personal computer market, yet nearly 100 percent of the computers shown being used in all the night time programming, on nearly all the major networks, was an apple. It did not matter, sitcoms, drama, what ever, they were all Apples

      If there is one item which assaults more than any other, can get into a million minds and convince them it is showing reality, it is TV

      As to your other question
      “Why does the U.S. have so much more violent and gun crime than European countries (or, for that matter, many Asian countries)? ”

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_rate

      World wide average is about 7.7 per 100,000, almost double the US murder rate

      And if you scroll down to near the bottom of the link above, to look at US stats, you will see some states with murder rates lower than those in Europe

      And if you look even further you will find the vast majority of murders are in cities by blacks and Hispanics

      So I think the problem is who has been feeding you the information you think you know

      Jota_, just please tell me one of the tens of thousands of incidents where people defended themselves against crime with a semi-automatic assault weapon. Just one specific incident that you know of, that’s all that it will take to convince me that you are telling the truth. (But tell me where I can check on it.)

      About murder rates: Even Maine has more than twice the rate of Germany. Utah, too. If you compare with Columbia, or with many African countries, yes, the United States is doing great in comparison with those. But I think perhaps we should aim higher than that? Maybe strive to become as safe as France, or as safe as Hong Kong? We’ve got a long way to go if that’s our ambition, a very long way. Even in Maine we’ve got a long way to go if we want to become as safe as Germany or Japan. You learn that from the Wikipedia page that you yourself quoted.

      CBORGERS, ANOTHER THING…

      People don’t buy these firearms because of “NRA lobbying”, they buy them for the reason you communist scumbags can’t understand – the free market and competition. These types of firearms are of higher value than a “conventional” bolt action rifle (which you gun banning scum will no doubt come after next). The price is reasonable, the rifle is more flexible / reconfigurable, and there are many inexpensive replacement parts (easier to maintain). The NRA has nothing to do with the popularity of this rifle. The reality is that in a free market, the best products win out.

      CBORGERS one last thing….

      Since you seem to be into statistics, how about looking up homicide rates in Russia, India, South Africa and Mexico (all countries that either ban or heavily restrict civilian firearm ownership). Not that long ago, Russia’s rate was around 20/100k (4x the US rate). India’s rate is close to that of the US despite the fact that firearms are heavily restricted. South Africa and Mexico, jeez, look them up. To think that the criminal element won’t have access to these guns after you ban civilian ownership of them is crazy. Do you actually think these guns won’t be sold to drug dealers, the mafia and other crooks because they’re “illegal”? You don’t think some destitute guy in Kenya with a crate of AKs will sell them to someone who will in turn market them to criminals is a possibility? It really takes the willing suspension of disbelief with you guys, doesn’t it?

      You will find hundreds of published incidents here
      http://www.nraila.org/gun-laws/armed-citizen.aspx

      Oh, but you want “semi-automatic assault weapons”

      Yea right, when you tell me what makes a gun a “semi-automatic assault weapons” rahter than just a semi-automatic gun

      So in a way you are right, no on has ever defended themselves with one because they don’t exist and why you cannot find any stories about one, but since they don’t exist it is also hard they have ever been use offensively. It is pure liberal spin to agitate the ignorant

      “Maybe strive to become as safe as France, or as safe as Hong Kong? We’ve got a long way to go if that’s our ambition, a very long way”

      Blacks are 12.8 percent of our population, yet account for 56 percent of all murders

      4.2 per 100,000 take 44 percent = 1.85 per 100,000

      and if the Hispanic murders are also removed it even get lower

      and guess what?

      We are now beginning to look like Germany and France with a homogenous population

      Also find it interesting the blanks and Hispanics in the US have murder rates lower than country they are the majority.

      Why do they as a group have such high murder rates?

      Here are the numbers for you

      Eastern Africa 21.9 69,344 Africa
      Middle Africa 20.8 25,330 Africa

    What is even scarier is the call by the left gun haters to do violence to those who support the NRA or propose a cooling off period before rushing to make things worse. Since most of the incidents took place in ‘gun free’ zones where often police are not armed, that should be an area of discussion but it isn’t! The other incident of the shooter of the firemen has the suspect bludgeoning his grandmother to death in 1980 with a hammer, be careful of carpenters: they have hammers, drills, and saws!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_the_United_States
    “As of 2010, statistics report that of 16,277 murders, …. 5,334 murders were committed by white/white Hispanic offenders, 5,943 were committed by black/black Hispanic offenders, 273 were committed by offenders of other races, and 4,727 murders were committed by offenders whose race is not known”

    Of the murders which were by a known race 53% were black/black Hispanic

    And black’s voted 93% for Obama

    And if we assume of 5,334 murders by white/white Hispanic
    it can be divided by the 42% whom voted for Obama

    (However, this assumption will benefit the Democrats because the precincts Obama won are predominately urban and it has a 56% higher crime rate than rural)

    5,943 black/black Hispanic X 93% = 5,527
    5,334 white/white Hispanic X 42% = 2,240

    So by known race, nearly 70% of murders were members of a race whom voted for Obama, and if the 56% for urban was factored in, it will be higher.

    The conclusion is clear, liberal thinking kills people the vast majority of the time

      88% of murders were in cities

      Not only did Obama win the urban vote he overwhelmingly won it

      What is it about cities that so overwhelmingly vote Democrat and then have nearly all the murders?

      While the first link is a county map for the 2008 election showing who voted for Obama and who voted for McCain, it does match closely the map for urban areas

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gastner_map_purple_byarea_bycounty.png

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USA-Urban-Areas.svg

      The precision would even be greater if it was for precincts rather than county, since many cities extend into multiple counties, few over lay 100% of all the county they reside in. Which is why the blue area is larger than the area for cities, but it is the match of location, which clearly shows where 88% of murders happen, in areas which vote Democrat

      It is as if the murders vote Democrat to disarm the rest of the country to make it easier for themselves. Which is absurd, but that is the way it looks

    Don’t be too hard on liberals/progressives. Gun control worked very well for Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Hitler, Castro, Mussolini, Che, etc. Obama’s buddies, the Weather underground, believe that 25 million “casualties” among those who disagree with their vision and who can not be “reprogrammed” is reasonable/acceptable to achieve their end of fundamentally transforming America into a socialist state.

    Much to our own shame (ask the Native Americans), every nation that has sought to limit the ability of its people to defend themselves has eventually turned on them with extremely dire consequences.

    What security can one expect from a foreign usurper who has already thrown his closest family and friends under the bus?

      I like to look at the big picture to put things in context. The government is tyranical, now, today. The central governmet in partnership with the banking elite and the corporate criminals control the MSM totally.

      When tyrants control the media, what you get is nothing but propaganda and mind manipulation to supprt the agenda of tyranny.

      I am an American citizen who lives in a foreign country. As such I am not enveloped in the propaganda bubble which envelops the majority of American citizens. I have rejected the MSM for the liars they are. I rely on alternative media and only those who do not have any hidden political agenda as far as I can determine.

      When I was younger, I believed that the news was true. But that has changed. There is little truth and little fact in the MSM news. They have changed and so have I.

      I agree totally that the MSM news is the tool of a completely corrupt, traitorous, and criminal government and is an enemy of truth, freedom and the American people, even though most of them have been effectively brainwashed, dumbed down and over medicated.

    No one should be surprised that the black on black killings gets no mention in the liberal press. Any such stories would tarnish the image of the annointed one and also that of Rob the Mayor. As long as the mainstream media is dominated by do-gooders and the faint-of-heart, you will neither read nor hear criticism one. Just one aside note; you didn’t hear anything from our pathetic CIC or the media about an ex-marine that was illegally detained in a Mexican prison either (or consequently anything about his release) until FOX news, Bill O’Reilly, et al made it a national issue. Thanks to them, he isn’t going to languish in mexican squalor for the next 15 years.

    Kirsten Powers, Fox News contributor (and a liberal Democrat), stated on the air a few days ago that the NRA is ‘a totally destructive organization’. Perhaps she has never heard of the Eddy Eagle program to prevent children from being injured with guns, their hunter safety programs, and their promotion of marksmanship and police training.
    Why would anyone pay attention to anything this ‘dumb blond’ says?

    If gun laws worked, the proponents of such laws would gleefully cite examples of reduced crime. Washington D.C. banned hand guns and now has a homicide rate 8x the national average.
    What do the statistical experts say internationally?

    The 10 nations with the highest homicide rates in the world, averaging 50.67 per 100,000, have 6.84 guns per 100 people. The ten nations with the lowest homicide rates—just 0.5 per 100,000—have gun rates of 20.39 per 100 people. While the “armed” nations have more than triple the number of privately-held firearms, their homicides rates are just 1/100th those found in the 10 least-armed nations.

    The 25 most deadly nations—with an average of 39.88 homicides per 100,000—have a gun proliferation rate 4.89 per 100. The 25 least deadly nations —0.77 per 100,000—have guns rates of 17.43 per 100.

    While it would be stupid to say that gun ownership is the only factor influencing homicide rates, it would be even more stupid to claim that the numbers show that gun ownership increases homicides. The evidence does NOT support that when we look at international data.

    Gun ownership does NOT increase homicides.
    Gun control laws do NOT make countries safer.

    Look it up for yourself. We CANNOT trust mainstream media because they lie and they have a communist agenda.

    This video was shared here recently and I watched it and am further convinced we need to protect our 2nd amendment rights.

      shafawn,
      Thanks for the stats and the links. Nice objective job on your part. Have you seen the Gun Control Genocide Chart at jpfo.org?

      Keep up the good fight as Facts/The Left=Sunlight/Germs.

    First of all The Right To Bear Arms is the Second Amendment to the Constitution and is the Supreme Law of Tha Land. If this idiot Obama thinks that he is superior to that Constitution, then let him TRY to confiscate our guns. If the Liberal Ignoranti think that they are above the law, come and take them. The more that I post on these comments sections the more that I realize the futility of trying to debate or reason with these low-life liberals They all think that this is a game and want to see how many times that they can poke us in the eye before we react. The line in the sand is the second amendment. Every single person that I know is stocking up on ammunition and this includes folks that I didn’t think even owned or touched a gun. I and many others have fought to defend this country and we are not going to turn it over to any liberal who knows how to rig an election and steal it. Also, I cannot understand why the black people in America don’t see how the Liberal Democrat Party is playing them for fools. Where is the outrage over the horrendous death toll in Chicago that the politicians just wink and ignore? Is there any attempt to remove the illegal guns on the street there and maybe save some lives? I haven’t seen or heard anything. All I have seen is how the police there and the media do not even report it. The death toll in Chicago is higher than in the Afghan war and that is a real war for God’s sake. Is it some demented idea that blacks don’t count as long as they elect them. Also the Democrats push abortion and hammer the Republican Party because we are against it. About a million babies are aborted in this country every year helped by the Democrat baby killers. About 850,000 of those babies are black. Is this also a co-incidence? I am totally against abortion as most conservatives are and we have got to stop the violence in our big cites.

    When David Gregory can openly violate Washington DC firearms laws on a nationally broadcast episode of “Meet the Press” on network television and not be arrested, nor at least the network investigated by the FCC for broadcasting the commission of a felony, we know that the Liberati have gained special rights above and beyond the laws that govern the rest of us. Such corruption is the beginning of a dictatorship with laws for some, but not all. America will no longer be a special place for liberty and justice if selective enforcement is tolerated.

    For a person so young he has great insight into the causes of such high homidide rates in democrat controlled cities. Yes Obalmmo and Rob along with Holder and all of the POTUS’s czar’s and his many visitor’s from the cair or muslim brotherhood and the MSM are quite happy with the media push to both blame and even incite people to murder the head’s of the NRA,and other Gun Owner Groups along with their many members. I am pleased to see that Gun and ammo sales are going thru the roof as many are also seeing the coming war that these ******** want here to decimate America. We may get bloodied but we shall win and America will come back out on top as the world’s greatest power once more
