CEO and President
National Gun Victims Action Council
We will stop referring to ourselves as a "civil rights"
organization that defends "human rights." It is a sacrilege to people
actually killed or harmed by civil and human rights abuses.
We will stop blaming gun crime on "failure to enforce existing laws" and confess that it is our lobbying that has blocked sharing and computerizing of national firearm sales data so crimes cannot be solved. We also block weapon microstamping, further making sure the "bad guys'" never get caught.
We admit that arming bad guys through such loose laws and then blaming armed "bad guys" for the need for more firearms is like killing your parents and crying you are an orphan.
We will admit background checks are a joke. Mass shooters Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech), James Holmes (Aurora), Jared Loughner (Tucson), Aaron Alexis (Navy Yard), Paul Ciancia (LAX airport) and Stephen Phillip Kazmierczak (Northern Illinois University) sailed through them.
We declare that the "gun show loophole" is actually gigantic and that such private sales amount to 40 percent of US guns sales. Yes, almost half.
