Joint statement from SAF and CCRKBA on Uvalde

JOINT STATEMENT FROM SAF AND CCRKBA ON UVALDE 

Legitimate, law-abiding American gun owners are today as outraged and saddened as everyone else by the horrible acts of a crazed murderer in Uvalde, Texas. The Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms join our fellow citizens to grieve the unimaginable loss suffered by the Uvalde community and the citizens of Texas. 

The past 24 hours have allowed us to learn far more about the killer and the circumstances surrounding his deplorable act of violence. Unlike anti-gun-rights politicians including Joe Biden, who quickly exploited this horror to push an agenda aimed at diminishing the Second Amendment and shifting blame to millions of gun owners, we waited for more information.  

If there is blame beyond that of the killer, it must be shared by political leaders whose policies have turned our public schools into soft targets, and by self-appointed activists and school boards that have resisted school resource officer programs, opposed and prohibited programs that train teachers and staff to provide armed first response in an emergency, while perpetuating dangerous "Gun Free School Zone" laws. 

President Biden demanded "commonsense gun laws." We believe it is time for common sense, period. We spend billions of dollars on foreign aid. We can provide millions of dollars to local law enforcement agencies for school resource officers. We protect our politicians with armed security. Let's protect our schools to the same degree. 

Let's take advantage of a great resource: our retired military and law enforcement professionals. They protected our nation and our communities. They can easily protect our school children.

Instead of demonizing gun owners and the firearms industry, bring them to the table and benefit from their knowledge. Together we can succeed where the gun prohibition agenda has disastrously and repeatedly failed.

U.K. Launches National Firearm Surrender Campaign - Ammoland.com

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On March 12, a two-week campaign was launched in the United Kingdom to encourage subjects of Her Majesty the Queen to surrender firearms, ammunition, weapons, and any other object even vaguely reminiscent of a gun to local police stations.

An official with the National Police Chief’s Council assured citizens that they will receive amnesty for any otherwise illegal possession or transport involved in their participation. “We don’t need to know your name, we don’t need to know how you came into possession of it,” Deputy Chief Constable Helen McMillan said, “all we need you to do is give us the gun.”

“Oy, just give us the gun, it’s for your own good” is a story that Britons have been hearing from their government since at least 1997. That year, the nation launched a national firearms “buyback” campaign to supplement a two-year legislative crackdown on private firearm ownership that eventually resulted in the banning of handguns. This policy “success” has frequently been lauded by gun control advocates, with Barack Obama being one of its most outspoken admirers here in the United States.

But with common firearms banned or severely restricted in Great Britain for over 25 years, what is left to be surrendered at this point?

ATF Partners with Anti-Gun Researchers to Expand Agency’s Power - Ammoland.com

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On May 17, the Department of Justice announced the release of a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives publication titled the National Firearms in Commerce and Trafficking Assessment (NFCTA). The report is the result of the Biden-Harris Administration’s April 2021 “Initial Actions to Address the Gun Violence,” which called for the creation of “an annual report on firearms trafficking.” The May 17 release is the first volume in a planned four-volume series.

Despite the presidential mandate, the first volume of the NFCTA is long on “commerce” and short on “trafficking.” Most of the document is a collection and presentation of firearm industry data that is available elsewhere. To the extent that the document is a convenient compilation of firearm industry data, it is useful. Gun rights supporters inclined to delve into the 308-page document will find much of interest.

Those who appreciate Second Amendment rights will be less enthused by portions of the document devoted to touting ATF’s recent controversial regulatory moves and the frequent editorializing.

Prayers for the survivors and families - Uvalde Texas Shooting.

 From FoxNews.Com


A mass shooting at a Texas elementary school killed 14 children and one teacher Tuesday and the suspected gunman was killed, Gov. Greg Abbott said.

Abbott identified the suspect as Salvador Romas, a Uvalde resident, who is also dead and acted alone, authorities said. He had a handgun and possibly a rifle when he opened fire at Robb Elementary School, he said. Two police officers were shot and wounded but were expected to survive, Abbott said. 

"Texans across the state are grieving for the victims of this senseless crime and for the community of Uvalde. Cecilia and I mourn this horrific loss and we urge all Texans to come together to show our unwavering support to all who are suffering," he said in a statement. 

The shooter was likely killed by responding officers but the investigation was still ongoing, authorities said. 


Please pray for the survivors of this attack and for all of the families of those afftected.

ATF inflating ‘ghost gun’ numbers - SAF

ATF inflating 'ghost gun' numbers hoping Congress inflates its budget

by Lee Williams
 
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is counting the number of Google searches for "ghost guns" claiming that the data supports their theory that homemade firearms are skyrocketing in popularity among criminals. The "ghost gun" crisis, which the ATF itself ginned up, appears to be nothing more than the agency's latest and most desperate attempt to increase its dwindling budget.  
 
The ATF's newfound use of internet search trends as a crimefighting tool was revealed in a recently released 306-page report titled: "National Firearms Commerce and Trafficking Assessments: Firearms in Commerce."
 
In April 2021, Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland ordered ATF to produce a "comprehensive report on firearms commerce and trafficking." What they got was a bit of dealer and industry data mixed with supposition and theories that were both light on actual facts and previously shown to be false – all slickly packaged into a plea for more money, more agents and more authority.
 
The report repeats bogus "ghost gun" claims, which have already been debunked by dozens of senior law enforcement sources and a congressional whistleblower. In other words, ATF submitted a report to the President and to the Attorney General of the United States containing information it knew was false.
 
The report also cites how the agency is struggling to keep up with the staffing levels of other federal law enforcement agencies, especially FBI and DEA, which could explain why they're stretching the truth a bit in their report. Some of its claims are laughable. However, nothing in the entire 306 pages is as ridiculous as the amateurish research methods they used to create and support their fictitious "ghost gun" theories.  
 
Google and media data  
 
Americans have been legally making guns in their homes since before there was a United States of America. ATF admits this in their report, kind of, stating that the Gun Control Act of 1968 "does not regulate the making of firearms by private individuals who are not engaged in the business of manufacturing or dealing in firearms." After that brief disclaimer, however, the report rarely mentions the legality of homemade guns, which ATF calls "Privately Made Firearms" or PMFs.
 
The internet, the report states, "provides manufacturers of these technologies, plans, and parts direct access to a mass market. To illustrate this point, one need only conduct an internet search and review the number of results and speed at which the results are returned."
 
The authors entered five PMF phrases into a Google search box: "80% Receivers, Ghost Gun kit, AR-15 receiver, 3d printed gun and Polymer 80."
 
"The Google searches returned more than 5 million pages of search results and more than 130 thousand marketing and instructional videos," the report states. However, it never puts this number into context. For example, my search for Bigfoot produced 39 million results. A search for UFO Abduction insurance produced more than 760,000 results.
 
The authors also searched for news stories about "ghost guns," and to no one's surprise they found a few, which they also claim proves they are increasingly used in crimes: "The increase in news stories is reflective of the increase in PMF use in crimes and PMF recoveries by law enforcement," the report states. It does not explain how the authors made this leap in logic.
 
Debunked numbers
 
The entire crackdown on "ghost guns" is based on a hoax that has been promulgated by ATF and Joe Biden.
 
"Last year alone, law enforcement reported approximately 20,000 suspected ghost guns to be – to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. That's a tenfold increase in these ghost guns from 2016. Tenfold in five years," Biden said last April. "These guns are weapons of choice for many criminals. We're going to do everything we can to deprive them of that choice and, when we find them, put them in jail for a long, long time. Law enforcement is sounding the alarms. Our communities are paying the price. And we're acting."
 
The "ghost gun" drama was started by Carlos A. Canino, the former Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the ATF's Los Angeles Field Division. In 2020, anti-gun activists asked Canino about the prevalence of homemade firearms in California. An earlier study said 30% of the guns recovered by ATF in California were unserialized "ghost guns," but Canino said the real numbers were actually much higher. "Forty-one percent, so almost half our cases we're coming across are these 'ghost guns,'" Canino said.
 
A story by the Second Amendment Foundation's Investigative Journalism Project revealed that the ATF could not verify Canino's comments.
 
"I contacted the Los Angeles Field Division earlier today after your initial email, and their Public Information Officer was unable to verify any figures provided in 2019 by former-SAC Canino without knowing the time-period(s) he used for his comments," an ATF spokesman admitted in an email.
 
After the story was published, a staff member for a U.S. Congressman came forward. This whistleblower, who asked that their name be withheld from publication, revealed even more problems about the ATF's "ghost gun" numbers.
 
The whistleblower asked the U.S. Justice Department for "ghost gun" data, since the ATF falls under the DOJ's purview.
 
"Because it is not currently a federal crime to own either a homemade firearm or a braced pistol, DOJ claims they do not have accurate/comprehensive databases to track their use in crimes. They compile information from state and local police units – but that information is only as good as what is reported," the whistleblower said in an email. To be clear, the Department of Justice told a U.S. Congressman's staff member that their "ghost gun" data is neither accurate nor comprehensive.
 
"Despite that," the whistleblower said in an email, "the DOJ sent a document stating: 'Privately made firearms (PMFs), known as ghost guns, are a rapidly growing contributor to violent crime. From January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2020, there were approximately 23,906 suspected PMFs reported to ATF as having been recovered by law enforcement, including in connection with 325 homicides or attempted homicides. The trendline is troubling: in 2016, local law enforcement reported to ATF 1,750 suspected PMFs; by 2020, that number had grown to 8,712, an increase of over 400 percent."
 
This is the same data ATF submitted in their report to Biden and Attorney General Garland – data that the DOJ said is "neither accurate nor comprehensive," – data the ATF knew was false.
 
Takeaways
 
The authors who wrote this report are not shy about the real reason for the 306-page document.
 
"Over the past three decades, ATF has not been funded and staffed commensurate with staffing increases received by other DOJ law enforcement agencies. In 1973, ATF had 3,829 employees, including 1,622 special agents and 826 industry operations investigators. In 2022, ATF has 5,410 employees including 2,653 special agents and 760 industry operations investigators. This represents a 41% increase in total employees.
 
By contrast, in 1973 the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) had 2,775 employees of which 1,470 were special agents. In 2021, DEA employed 9,848 employees of which 4,649 were special agents. This represents a 254% increase. Similarly, in 1973, the FBI had 20,527 employees. In 2021, the FBI employed 35,842 employees. This represents a 75% increase."
 
It's clear the ATF is looking for a 21st Century mission – something more relevant than regulating untaxed cigarettes or bootleg corn liquor – so they turned to "ghost guns," a fiction which Biden and the legacy media were only too happy to help promote.
 
Besides, the dozens of senior law enforcement professionals across the country I have spoken to say "ghost guns" are not a problem in their jurisdictions. The ATF, they say, must be conflating homemade guns and factory-made firearms that have had their serial numbers illegally removed to come up with their large numbers, or, more likely, ATF is just making the numbers up, hoping to increase their budget.
 
The research methods ATF used for this report indicate nothing is out of bounds. Claiming there are now more plans on the internet for "ghost guns" so there must be more "ghost guns" makes no sense. There are more plans online now for atomic bombs, time machines and the perfect Bundt cake than there were years ago. Does this mean they too are growing in popularity? And basing any conclusion on media stories is legendarily dumb. I spent more than 20 years in the legacy media. The vast majority of my former colleagues could not articulate the difference between a rifle and a shotgun. Ask them anything about "ghost guns" and they wouldn't have a clue.
 
The ATF has always been somewhat of a laughingstock – a pariah among federal law enforcement agencies. That they would now invent a fake problem and then hold their hand out to Congress for more money to fix it shouldn't come as a surprise. After all, this is the federal agency that believed pressuring a retired Green Beret into sawing off a shotgun barrel, laying siege to 76 men, women and children and running guns into Mexico were sound law enforcement strategies, despite the number of lives lost as a result.
