    I would give a month's pay just to watch Ginny Burdick as she digests this video. It deals entirely with the raw, FBI supplied data on gun crime. No surprise that almost all the shots are fired by gangs in cities. UK has worse violent crime. All stuff we know.

    The kicker is that the guy is a liberal and probably doesn't even own a gun.

    Check it out and bombard Ginny's email with the link until she replies.

    Shared. He makes the point I've been trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to make with many far better than I have.

    Excellent info! I just forwarded this link to a lefty from work that believes that all weapons that go bang should be banned, except for hunting purposes.

    I watched this video several times today and shared it will several employees! I love the FACTS, though using those in an argument with a bleeding heart are useless!
    Good find and great video!

    Good video except for:

    5:54 -- "Homicides that were caused by firearms" "were caused by rifles"

    Sorry, but the firearms and rifles did not CAUSE the crimes. The firearms and rifles were USED in the crime.

    This seems simple enough doesn't it. Yet a VAST majority of the country can't think long enough for themselves to rationalize the difference...let a lone pull their damn noses away from Facebook and the like long enough to care.
    I say this of course with my nose buried in my own version of social media! Lol. :)

    I am anything but an expert on this, but I found the video enlightening. Also, I found it refreshing that the guy talking about it was a very well-spoken geek.

    I shared it on my Facebook wall.

    I put this on my Facebook wall as well. Share it, like it, make it go viral. It already has more than 200k views.

    Aslinged turned us on to this guy's first video. Here is another great one!

    Amidst The Noise - YouTube

    This is excellent communication skill. Instead of acting like a paranoid sub culture (hello Militia and 'Patriot Party'), we need to talk to the majority of folks who could care less about guns but are increasingly concerned about perceived violence. If we are going to have a chance to derail Ginny Burdick's legislation, we need talking points along these lines, and a citizen lobbying strategy.

    The author of these YouTubes runs a business in Michigan called Boxer Tactical, making belts and other gear, so he is in the 'industry'.However, he's not coming off like someone's crazy uncle, or Wayne Lapierre.

    I'm one of her constituents... Maybe I'll schedule a meeting and sit her down to watch it on a laptop in her office. :-D

    If you are going down to Salem, I'd go with you to talk with Caroline Tomei and Diana Rosenbaum.

    I just have to wonder what made you think this?? Are we simply judging by the look of the guy?

    I think the guy is a genius and I could care less whether he owns a gun or not- we should all be so thoughtful and articulate! (if there are more of him, we just might have a fighting chance to get through this administration with our country intact)
