Due to the New Feeding Frenzy on Gun Laws by the Media following the disaster in the Aurora Cinema it seemed to be more fitting to supply an article in answer to this, so I have postphoned the two regular articles Accurate Firearm Design and Understanding Reloading Ammunition until Edition 71.

The Cause and Effect of Media Hype.

The Effect
Words must be said about the latest ghoulish feeding frenzy of the Anti Gun Lobby and their media hirelings.  Loss, Anguished, Torment, Heartbreak Grief. It is impossible for words to describe what the families of the victims are suffering. Our sympathy seems so utterly
Inadequate, but sympathy is genuinely felt by firearm owners for those bereaved.
Not so with the Media and the anti gunner, they do not wait for the blood to stop flowing before they revel in it. They publicise it, they magnify every detail, they make maniacs into heros and heros into maniacs. They have turned the world upside down. They give instant immortality to Manchurian candidates, who have been programmed by the media, by the state, the entertainment industry to have no respect for human life.
At the same time, they remove the blame, the whole responsibility of the crime from the immortalised maniac to the inanimate object the firearm. They blame firearm owners for the crime. They split their focus on to the glorification of the maniac, removing his responsibility and condemning firearm ownership. Incorrectly, creating firearms and firearm owners as the cause, where in fact they are the produced victims of the media bashing. 

Firearm Owners have found no justice. The rich win, the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time,  a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims and we become victims. We become weak. We doubt ourselves. We doubt our beliefs. We doubt our institutions. And we doubt the law.
The media is so powerful, that after they had picked the bones clean on their Port Arthur campaign, law abiding firearm owners dutifully queued to hand over their 100 year old heirlooms, mostly for no compensation to the government crushers.

The powerbrokers, who manufacture the consent of the public, forcing legislation which ignores the cause and concentrates specifically on the tool, which is part of the effect, condemns us to the repetition of such acts. This fact is so obvious that it raises doubts in either their integrity or sanity. A political agenda, or Dr Strangelove madness. 

The Cause.
All to sate the greed of these academic social engineers who have taken education into the wilderness of anything goes, destroyed marriage, families, removed the death penalty, no morals, no logic, no blame, and making the State responsible, to feed the people from the cradle to the grave. Without responsibility people relinquish their freedom. That seems to be the objective of the Social engineers. They educate our younger generations into believing that they have no responsibility and that their only allegiance is to their own self gratification. No responsibility to family, their country, a religion. No they have replaced all this with self gratification, if it feels good do it. Yet, they act surprised when the products of their Manchurian mind games go out and kill people with less emotion than a housewife using fly spray.
In days gone by, soldier returning from the battlefields, many who had seen repeated, horrific bloodshed, had little compassion to spare for human life, even their own, they had inured themselves from the psychological scars. These days our youths have viewed ten thousand deaths on the video screen and taken part in a million murders in computer games. Human life is now not worth a bowl of cherries. We have programmed our youth to behave in a similar fashion to the Japanese of the 1930s and 1940s who had no regard for the lives of their conquered nations and had little regard for their own lives, as their lives belonged to the deity of the god like emperor. Likewise our youths, new god is the messages given to them on an electronic screen, reality and responsibility have been lost.  The people sending these messages are the cause of our discontent.
Logic Should End the Feeding Frenzy.
If a drunken driver crashes through a bus stop and kills nine children and two parents, do we blame the effect, the car, or the cause the drunken driver? In these cases without media hype, we immediately blame the cause, the driver. Yet, in all cases of misbehaviour with a firearm they blame the effecting tool.
Statistics and figures are used to condemn the innocent law-abiding firearm owner yet in 2002 five years after John Howard’s un informed gun laws were enacted the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime.  Then Australia’s Bureau of Statistics on Crime and Research acknowledged that the gun laws had no significant impact on the amount of guns involved in crime. That should have been the end of it, but that information is not the news that sells advertising.
Main stream media never wish to publish both sides of a debate they omit entirely the statistics that are pro-firearms such as.
The most recent FBI figures show just 358 of the 8,775 murders by firearm in 2010 involved rifles. By comparison, 745 people were beaten to death with only hands that year, but no one has called for outlawing of fists.

Guns don’t kill people, doctors kill people.’
In Britain Six thousand patients are dying every year because hospital staff are not properly monitoring important vital signs, such as blood oxygen levels how can firearms compete with death rates like this, that are ignored as they do not suit the social engineers’ agenda.
We all lose the reality to a certain degree, due to the size of the numbers that are quoted as facts and statistics the 700,000 Doctors in the United States, cause 120,000 Accidental Deaths per year that is Accidental Deaths per physician is 0.171. Statistics U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.
The number of gun owners in the U.S. is at least  80,000,000. (New figures quote 90 Million)  The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.0000188, Statistics from FBI.
So, statistically, doctors are approximately  9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!! 
The media is quick to compare armed crime figures with between Australia and the United States, who do not have our extremist tyrannical gun laws, yet both countries have shared similar decreases in murder rates over the last 22 years. In Australia in  2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent. Sexual assault, Australia’s equivalent term for rape, increased 29.9 percent. Overall, Australia’s violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.
Through 2010, the USA murder rate has decreased 52 percent to a 47-year low, and the total violent crime rate has decreased 48 percent to a 37-year low
Between 1995 and 2007, Australia saw a 31.9 percent decrease in violent crime rates yet The United States without our extremist Gun laws dropped by 31.7 percent.
During the same time period, all other violent crime indices, besides murder increased in Australia. Assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent. Sexual assault, Australia’s nice words for rape, increased 29.9 percent. Overall, Australia’s violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.
At the same time, United States violent crime decreased 31.8 percent: rape dropped 19.2 percent; robbery decreased 33.2 percent; aggravated assault dropped 32.2 percent. Australian women are now raped more than three times as often as American women.
The FBI has preliminarily reported a four percent drop in the number of violent crimes from 2010 to 2011. The 18th drop in the last 20 years. Violent crime is now at about a 41-year low. The NRA responded that crime has decreased as the number of Right-to-Carry states has risen to an all-time high as 49 U.S. states either issue carry permits, or otherwise authorize law-abiding people to carry firearms outside the home for self-defence.
The International Crime Victims Survey, conducted by Leiden University in Holland, found that England and Wales ranked second overall in violent crime amongst all industrialized nations. Twenty-six percent of English citizens, roughly one-quarter of the population, have been victimized by violent crime. Australia led the list with more than 30 percent of its population victimized. The United States didn’t even make the “top 10” list of industrialized nations whose citizens were victimized by crime.
So, if the United States follows the suggestion of Gun Control Australia and the Australian media and follow  Australia’s lead in banning guns, it should expect a 42 percent increase in violent crime, a higher percentage of murders committed with a firearm, and three times more rape.

The Media Brainwash.
Capitalizing on the tragedy of a mass murder is Ghoulish. The anti-gun forces are surging forward with their plans for total gun confiscation. If law-abiding private citizens were disarmed, they claim, criminals and crazies would be unable to kill and maim. That’s an obvious lie–criminals, by definition, disobey laws, and madmen can kill with cars, bombs, Sarin gas, poison in the Panadol, Fire (Childers Backpackers) or beer bottles, as easily and as senselessly as they can with guns.

The media’ purpose seems to elicit fear in the mind of the viewer and to convince us to live in constant fear of our surroundings. The media try to brainwash us into associating guns with bad people. Don’t you cringe when the media shows images of the man caught importing a ‘how to be a gunsmith manual’ by mail order, off the internet? The police cars, the Customs, the Army bomb squad ready and waiting. The photos of his little “Arsenal” half a dozen rifles all sprawled out on a bed, the long images of the Army boots beneath the bed  (as if those things are inherently evil)? Then they show some poor man whose has been dragged from his bed, roughly dressed, naturally scruffy, un happy scowling photo of the alleged “bad guy”. It might even turn out that this bad guy was innocent after all, but it doesn’t matter. All they want is the association. If you have a firearm then you’re like that bad man on TV. The more people are afraid, the more they will willingly give up their rights and even demand that those in power take them away from themselves, in order to protect us from ourselves. The media will never discuss the innumerable cases where law-abiding citizens defend themselves and others from certain death using guns. They never discuss how many crimes are deterred due to the presence of firearms. That might convince viewers that firearms can be used to protect people.

Tokegypt, 9mm Semi Auto Made in China Model 213.

As can be seen by the inset photo the barrels and chambers are all chrome plated. It has a plastic wrap around grip stock, instead of the Tokerev ‘bakelite’ and a finger piece type floor plate on the magazine, which improves your chances of quickly getting it out and getting another one in after someone has rammed one in covered in mud. The M 213 Chinese version of this also has a chrome plated barrel shown in the above photograph. These are brand new unfired but have the usual scratch marks and rough corners as shown in the photographs. As standard the barrels are a millimetre short for club licences so are fitted with a slightly longer barrel. The steel is excellent and once a few surfaces, such as slides, are polished they are a slick an easy pointing pistol. Eight rounds in the magazine.$369. each $700 for two. plus registered post and appropriate licences. If you want to order by mail Phone 07 54825070 have your card detail handy.

“It’s a week since I received a copy of “Range Officers Hand Book” and since that time I am nearly at the half way mark. I’m amazed at the at the number of subjects you have covered making it one of the most informative books to be added to my collection. It must have taken you a considerable amount of time and experience to publish the book with information not available in other popular Gunsmith manuals. I would recommend the book to “Range Officers” and anyone interested in the sport of target shooting and hunting.” Regards Gene M Cornford P.O.Box 288, Kaeo 0448 N.Z. Firearms Gunsmith, Dip M.G.S +Member of American Gunsmithing Assoc.The Range Officers Handbook is an encyclopedia or omnibus of firearms and ammunition and the use of them, it has:- • 90 pages of Information for Range Officers, • 239 pages on Coaching to Win, • 110 pages on Air Rifle History &Training, • 33 pages on hitting Clay Targets, • 34 pages on Reloading Ammunition, • 6 page of Contents, • 18 pages of Index, • 38 pages of Old into New, ( Chronological History of Firearms) • 23 pages of Glossary of Terminology on Firearms and Optics • Over 1000 drawings and photographs. • Over 530 pages in a A4 stitched colour hardback., Some, hopefully will read it cover to cover, others will pick a heading out of the Contents pages and read a chapter or two, but no matter how much you know about shooting, reference material is always needed, as even people who rate as genius cannot retain everything. The real ability is being able to find out quickly and easily. You can check that you have the correct terminology, in the Glossary, check the Index and go straight to the right page. This book can be used as an information tool for a lifetime of shooting.
