    Dave Workman has come to the attention of virulent anti-gun rights and Joyce Foundation lackey Josh Sugarmann, head of the "Violence Policy Center" (VPC), a tiny but annoying anti-gun rights lobbying group.

    Sugarmann is an agenda-driven tool; probably thumped himself in the face while limp-wristing his father's .357 and - after his family was done laughing at him - vowed to have firearms banned from everyone after that.

    ^That last sentence is probably wrong, but it's not much different than the content of his article. "This is my opinion, so prove me wrong!"

    The comments on the piece are worth the read.

    Ok, ok, I know it's Wikipedia but I found this funny (even if it isn't true....and if it is, we should all contact Josh and ask him to do firearm transfers for us.)

    Josh Sugarmann - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In spite of his anti-gun activism, Josh Sugarmann is a licensed firearm dealer and current holder of a Federal Firearms License (License Number: 1-54-XXX-XX-XX-00725; Expires: 03/01/2014) which is registered at the Violence Policy Center headquarters in Washington D.C.[1] (cf. ATF's FFLeZCheck web site).

    Well, if you pay enough attention to his Wikipedia page, you'll also see that the term "assaulut weapon" is from the Nazi's. the NAZI's! How could they not be evil? It's funny that, when d-bags like this bring up school shootings, they fail to thank god that guns were used. Has anyone heard of the Bath School Disaster in Michigan in 1927? If you have. or if you look into it, you will see that when sick folk put down their guns and pick up explosives it gets alot nastier and ALOT more people die. Harris and Kliebold got 13, I believe. Kinkle killed 4 and even Huberty only got 21 in the McDonalds while they sat there, being shot systematically. And thank God for the gun that killed Huberty. The point is, all of this blame on the gun. When explosives, airplanes and cars are used as vicious tools of murder. Do any of you other rational folk ever get hit with the argument, "I have to register my car, why shouldn't you register your gun?"? Once there is constitutional protection of your right to own and bear automotive's, that argument will hold water.

    It's important to remember that gun ownership is rising and it is one of the few markets that have serious growth(Has anyone paid attention to Ruger stock over the last 3 years?). The "gun-grabbers" can cry all they want. They won't get my guns and my boy is well on his way to being a proud, gun toting American voter(we have another 10 years before he votes, but the proud, gun toting American part is already there). We need to teach our young right and wrong and pass on our tradition's and our freedom's.

    Keep up the good work, Dave! My only request is that you don't write articles about guns that have been out for quite some time(in reference to your Springfield EMP article in a recent Gun Digest) and give us new info. Kip.

    "Because most states don't release detailed information on crimes committed by concealed handgun permit holders, the incidents listed above are from news reports. The actual number of lethal non-self defense incidents involving private citizens legally allowed to carry concealed handguns is most likely far, far higher."

    And yet, according to concealed carry advocate Dave Workman, concealed handgun permit holder and mass shooter Ian Stawicki had "his own life to live." What about his victims and their families?

    Generally speaking, taking a single sentence from an interview totally out of context is not going to give you an accurate picture of what was really said. Here is the whole thing.

    What I don't understand is that these people believe guns actually DRIVE people to murder. Like you are sitting there, your gun tells you to kill, so you go outside and start shooting people. Once you decide you are going to go on a murder spree, having a gun or not is not going to be the deciding factor. Like, "Yep, I'm crazy, I should kill people...damn no gun, well I guess I'll just go watch the Simpsons."

    I also feel just because they don't have a gun or legally able to posses a gun is not going to stop someone from killing someone. They will go and steal or otherwise illegally get access to what they want for their own "plan of action". If the courts and justice system did a good job and held people accountable for their actions someone along the way may think twice about killing someone. Or maybe the death penalty needs to be enacted for multiple murders.

    Minor correction - Assault Rifle (Sturmgewehr) is from Nazis, Assault Weapon is 100% American political term.

    Dave, watch your arse out there... the hot new dirty trick for Violent Radical Leftists (by which I mean the Brett Kimberlin/Bill Ayers wing, not all liberals) is something called "SWATting"... finding an opponent's personal info, spoofing their phone number on a VOIP call to their local 911 and claiming something to get the SWAT team deployed in Shoot First Question Later mode.

    Yep anytime I find someone who likes to commit multiple murders I always like to threaten him with the death penalty, really shakes him up something fierce

    Thank you, fd15k, for pointing out my error. I would also like to point out that my point was the attempt to liken gun owners to Nazi's. The term "assault weapon" is credited to Mr. Sugarmann. This coined term is derived from the Nazi "assault rifle" in an attempt to liken us to Nazi's, further vilifying firearms in general. Your semantics(while correct, no argument there) stray from the point. Kip.
