  1. Here's my blog post with video of NRA member Mike "the gun guy" Weisser talking about how we have no right to own guns & that he's OK with banning guns. Mike Weisser: NRA Member, Gun Rights Hater Here's the Ammoland version of my article: Mike Weisser: Self Loathing “NRA Member” & Gun Rights Hater ~ VIDEOS
  2. Murder Rates: Why Comparing The United States Only To Other Developed Countries Is Deceitful The problem with that limited comparison is the fact that many very poor countries are also very peaceful. http://theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/06/murder-rates-why-comparing-united_29.html
  3. Islands, Churches, and Guns As usual, a mass shooting like the one in Charleston brings out the gun rights haters who want to cynically use the blood of the victims to grease the skids for their gun control schemes. One hears and reads claim after nonsensical claim that if only we had less gun rights and fewer guns in the United States the victims would still be alive. Reality tells us something very different. http://theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/06/islands-churches-and-guns.html
  4. Braving Gun Rights Haters' Nails: Lower Merion Township, PA Family Open Carry Rally (video) Braving nails placed in the street by our car tires by gun rights haters (one wonders if there is no low they won't stoop to) we protested the fact that Lower Merion, PA won't repeal their local gun ordnance despite the fact that it's in violation of the state's preemption law. http://theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/03/braving-gun-rights-haters-nails-lower.html
  5. Gun Rights Haters: Victims or Aggressors? Now these perpetual “victims” want to learn about “Powerfully Peaceful Action in the Face of Armed and Aggressive Opposition”. Why do they say they need to do this? Because, according to them, “Almost every group in the gun sense movement has – at some time in the last several years – been confronted by armed and/or aggressive counter demonstrators at one of our public actions.” Though as you can see at the link above no examples of any aggressive behavior towards them are given. Of course, we often counter-demonstrate their events armed but that's not aggression as the zero body count and zero hospitalization rate among attendees show. If being around guns frightens them there is a name for that, hoplophobia. Perhaps a psychiatrist would be more helpful to them than a workshop. http://www.theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/02/gun-rights-haters-victims-or-aggressors.html
  6. Ah yes, the old libertarian hating conservative thing. Let's just agree to work together on this one issue.
  7. Gun Rights Haters Try To Learn About Guns Let me start with one of the most most important things that he said, “there is no gun show loophole”. He went to great lengths to explain that the idea that there are many gun sales going on at gun shows with no background checks performed is false. Glick very directly told the Delco United people not to pursue that angle. Read the rest at http://www.theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/02/gun-rights-haters-try-to-learn-about.html

    Gun rights versus anecdotes.

    Hi poolingmyignorance, I'm the author of the article. Thanks for posting the link. Here's the beginning of it: Gun Rights Versus AnecdotesWhich side wins depends on whether one can reason or simply react emotionally. Letters and an ad from gun rights hating groups For a while back in the Winter, a retired philosophy professor (who wants to remain anonymous) and I exchanged a few emails and, from him, snail mail, discussing gun rights. After not hearing from him for several months he very unexpectedly mailed me a large envelope containing forty-nine newspaper clippings with many reports of shootings and a few anti-gun rights op-eds (and, strangely, a pro-gun op-ed by John Lott). He also included a fund raising letter from the Brady Campaign, another one from the Children's Defense Fund Action Counsel, a magazine ad from the Center to Prevent Handgun Violence, and a hand written note. Especially surprising for their absence were any articles from scholarly source. Are there no scholarly articles in favor of gun control? He sent almost all anecdotes from mass media sources leaning heavily towards the New York Times and the Philadelphia Inquirer. One would expect better from university professor. http://www.theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/01/gun-rights-versus-anecdotes.html
