Carter-Lite?

In the 1970’s, Jimmy Carter and his inner circle of the self-annointed decided that they were going to rescue America by pushing through major, sweeping gun-control legislation, right up to the limit of what they could get away with, regardless of the 2nd Amendment.  They decided that the best approach was a massive new federal scientific study to show the best way to enact gun-control laws that would then control criminals.

They handed out a massive amount of federal money in a grant to University of Massachusetts sociology professor James D. Wright and two of his esteemed colleagues, Rossi and Daly. They conducted the most massive study ever done on the subject, a four-year study, the most expensive one ever done.  In 1981, they published the results, a 3 volume tome titled “Under the Gun”, published for the National Institute of Justice.  They had studied all of the 20,000 gun laws then in existence in the United States.

There was a problem.  Despite all of the research and scholarly study, they reached a conclusion, succinctly stated by Dr. Wright that “Gun control laws do not reduce crime.”

Clearly they did not understand the agenda or the means and methods by which funding and future funding from democratic politicians occurs.  Else they would have spent more time understanding which conclusions were desirable and which were not and then “adjusted” their findings so as to provide the desired justification of the rational for doing the study in the first place.

I.e. they would have figured out a way to provide the funding politicians with the results they wanted in order to justify what the politicians desired to do.  Sort of like the “global warming” crowd has figured out.  It is not known whether Dr Wright was ever rewarded with a federal grant ever again.  He had the respect of his peers.  Let him try to eat that.

So now Presbo wants  justification to violate the 2nd Amendment and restrict gun “keeping and bearing” in the US.  He has already stacked the Supreme Court and has a Senate that will not hold him accountable for anything.  Let’s hope that he finds a researcher who hasn’t read history.

Bin there. Dun that.
