From Keep and Bear Arms - August 29th 2018

The only way in which the bleeding heart liberal base will ever be able to fully render the Second Amendment useless is by injecting a number of emotional arguments into the mix.

You see, there is just no other way in which we can find ourselves without this inalienable right.  There’s no scenario in which the military and the police would actually come door to door, confronting gun owners in America unless something truly heinous and emotionally terrifying were to convince them otherwise.

And we must always be aware when the government pushes those reactions on us.

Now, a new data set shows that our current gun laws are working just fine…at least when you have someone like Jeff Sessions running the show at the Department of Justice.

Federal data suggests 2018 could be the Department of Justice’s busiest year ever in more than a decade for weapons prosecutions.

Should authorities keep up at the current pace, total annual prosecutions will exceed more than 10,000 this year — a 22.5 percent increase over 2017 and up by nearly half over the last five years, according to the Transactional Records Clearing House.

Weapons prosecutions peaked at 11,000 in 2004 and dropped to less than 7,000 a decade later. Since 2014, however, TRAC data shows a gradual uptick in prosecutions, punctuated by a steep increase this year as the DOJ cracks down on gun-related crimes.

This tends to reinforce the unfortunate concerns that swirl around embattled FBI as well, having already been implicated in several instances of utter negligence when it comes to gun violence.

Not only was Parkland, Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz reported to the agency as someone who would possibly “shoot someplace up”, but Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen was also surveilled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, possibly for as long as eleven years.
