Benghazi Jihadists Directly Connected to Obama Supported Syrian Rebels

Freedom Outpost

We all know what’s going to happen in Syria.  Barack Obama is attempting to  do a little dance to talk about “being concerned” and “considering carefully”  what to do, but in the end we all know what his decision will be, in spite of  the fact that there is no international coalition to strike Syria, nor is their  constitutional authority to do so.  However, the only people who benefit from a  U.S. strike in Syria are the Obama supported Syrian rebels, who are a part of  al-Qaeda and directly tied to the very al-Qaeda jihadists (Ansar al-Sharia)  that  attacked the diplomatic mission and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on  September  11, 2012, leaving 4 Americans dead and dozens wounded.

Harvard Gun Study Refutes Gun Grabber Claims

American Thinker

In  an almost fifty-page study published in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public  Policy, authors Don Kates and Gary Mauser, demonstrate again and again that  strict gun control laws do not correlate with lower murder rates, neither in the  United States nor Europe. In fact, just as is true in the U.S. where the highest  murder rates occur in cities like  Chicago, with the strictest gun control laws, the highest murder rate among  developed countries is in Russia where gun ownership is highly  restricted.

The  study is a long but interesting read with several tables and lots of statistics  and well worth your time. But for those not inclined to read it, here is the  conclusion drawn by the authors:


This  Article has reviewed a significant amount of evidence from a wide variety of  international sources. Each individual portion of evidence is subject to cavil  — at the very least the general objection that the persuasiveness of social  scientific evidence cannot remotely approach the persuasiveness of conclusions  in the physical sciences. Nevertheless, the burden of proof rests on the  proponents of the more guns equal more death and fewer guns equal less death  mantra, especially since they argue public policy ought to be based on that  mantra. To bear that burden would at the very least require showing that a large  number of nations with more guns have more death and that nations that have  imposed strict gun controls have achieved substantial reductions in criminal  violence (or suicide). But those correlations are not observed when a large  number of nations are compared across the  world.

Emphasis  mine

In  other words, as we gun advocates have long known, the observable facts simply  will not support the emotional arguments of the gun grabbers regarding both  violent crime and suicide. Interestingly, the study also relates a survey of incarcerated felons that confirms that a criminal’s  greatest fear is that his victim may be armed. That certainly makes the case for  a well-armed citizenry regardless of the definition of  militia.

You  should read the entire study and then make sure your elected representatives  read it.
