This is part 2 of 5 in the series looking at how civilian disarmament is a step on the road to tyranny. General background information on this series can be seen in Part 1.
The John Birch Society released a 5 part series addressing civilian disarmament and how it is a step towards tyranny. This is part 1 of 5.
Its always annoyed me to hear people incorrectly refer to magazines as “clips”. This video clip does a nice job explaining the difference:
Gun control has cost the Democrats multiple elections, however the party leadership continues push ineffective gun control. Gun rights fit in with liberal values, and the Democratic party leadership needs to support the individual right to gun ownership.
Insurance companies spend a great deal of time to determine which activities are risky. They do so in order to charge an insurance premium that is high enough that they will make money, but low enough that people will still purchase the insurance from them. This video clip discusses how insurance companies have determined gun ownership by law abiding citizens poses so low of a risk that just a few dollars worth of insurance premiums can buy millions of dollars worth of coverage.
Penn and Teller point out the problem with “gun free zones” in a quite concise manner.
This video clip shows the process through which a gun control ordinance was passed in California, despite the city council’s recognition that identical ordinances have not reduced violence in other cities. Instead, the end goals were to advance political careers and whittle away at gun ownership rights:
Carjackers advocate gun control legislation to foster a safer work environment.
Violent criminals advocate stronger gun control laws:
This video clip includes interviews with a family whose home was invaded by a criminal that shot two occupants, including a 3 year old boy.
This “shotgun” makes my Remington 870 seem like a toy. The XM1028 120MM tank shell contains about 1150 tungsten balls, making this one of the most powerful and long ranged shotguns in the world:
Below is a video clip showing the process of disassembling a Desert Eagle for cleaning purposes.
Below is a nice a video clip of fully automatic fire from a Thompson Submachinegun (AKA “Tommy Gun”), in slow motion.
Senator Kat Bailey does and excellent job explaining why the Second Amendment protects and individual right to keep and bear arms, independent of service in the militia.
This video clip is one of the most compelling personal accounts about guns and self defense that I have ever seen. Texas state representative Dr. Suzanna Gratia-Hupp’s parents were killed by an insane gunman while her gun was out in the car – left there because of the laws restricting concealed carry at that time. She gives some very moving and bold testimony about the REAL purpose of the Second Amendment: Self defense, and how the gun control laws only served to leave her family defenseless.
This video clip shows a variety of fully automatic firearms from Metal Storm Ltd, a research company that specializes in electronically fired, stacked projectile weapon technology. The cartridges are lined up one after the other in gun’s barrel, and fired by an electrical signal. The rate of fire can exceed 1,000,000 rounds per minute. My favorite is actually a Metal Storm handgun, which fires 3 rounds in rapid succession – before the gun recoils from the first round!
A short but truly “priceless” video clip about self defense:
The video clip below shows how quickly a magazine can be reloaded, even by those who are relatively new to firearms (such as these cadets). Further proof that the “assault weapons” bans are ineffective and simply another way to whittle down the Second Amendment.
In this video clip, the Brady Campaign’s attempt to misconstrue the meaning of the Second Amendment is made clear:
This video clip demonstrates the steps to completely disassemble and reassemble a Glock pistol, which is good to know for detailed cleaning. Note that it is not necessary to dismantle a pistol to this great of a degree for the cleaning that should be done after every firing.
This video clip demonstrates the steps to disassemble and reassemble your Mossberg 500 or Mossberg 590 shotgun, for cleaning.
This video clip demonstrates the steps to disassemble and reassemble your Remington 870 shotgun, for cleaning.
This video clip includes an interview with a woman whose suffered an attempted home invasion, which was caught on tape. The home invaders wore gloves to avoid leaving behind finger prints, and cut the phone line to prevent the home owner or the security system from calling the police.
This video clip discusses how almost overnight, the citizens of Britain lost their gun rights after 2 high profile shootings. Collectors with guns that were hundreds of years old and worth thousands of dollars were forced to turn in their firearms for destruction. Olympic target shooters were forced to travel to another country to practice their sport. Still others had to hand over firearms given to them by long-since-dead parents, to have the barrels and receivers chopped apart. This is a warning what can happen when the law abiding gun owners of a country sit idly by as their gun rights and heritage is legislated away in a very brief period of time… And making matters worse, the gun control laws only led to a thriving black market for guns, defenseless law abiding citizens, and preventable murders.
This video clip demonstrates the steps to disassemble and reassemble your AK-47, for cleaning.
In this video clip, ABC’s 20/20 discusses the myth that gun control laws reduce crime. Instead, of showing a reduction in crime, John Stossel finds that gun control leads to an increase in crime, prevents law abiding citizens from defending themselves, doesn’t deter criminals, harms the weaker members of society, and paves the way for school shootings. It is refreshing to see a major news outlet reporting these facts in a unbiased manner.
After Hurricane Katrina, various police agencies in Louisiana wrongfully and unlawfully confiscated the firearms of law abiding citizens, leaving them at the mercy of criminals who took advantage of the hurricane to commit crimes. This video consists of interviews with several law abiding victims of firearms confiscation, including a woman who was thrown to the ground and punched by police.
Proper cleaning is important to keep all firearms functioning reliably, however it seems to be especially important for the AR-15. This video clip demonstrates the steps to disassemble and reassemble your AR-15, for cleaning.
In this video clip, Congresswoman McCarthy went on TV to argue in favor of gun control, but didn’t even know what the so called “assault weapon” feature she wanted to ban looks like or does. When asked what a barrel shroud did, she first dodged the question, then incorrectly stated that criminals frequently use weapons with such a feature, then made a wrong guess as to what a barrel shroud does and where it goes on a gun. It is simply ridiculous, ignorant, and embarrassing to have strong opinions about guns (or any other issue) unless one is familiar with the issue. It is even worse to be a member of congress who introduces legislation to ban an object, without even knowing what the object is or does.
This video clip shows a scale model of the air cooled 1919A4 Browning machine gun, chambered for .22 long rifle cartridges. This belt fed .22 caliber machine gun holds its ammunition in disintegrating nylon beltlinks that can be assembled, disassembled, and reused. It is a rather interesting project for sure.
I’ve added a new “video clips” section to LearnAboutGuns.com, and the first video clip featured is that of the Auto Assault 12. This is a drum fed, gas operated, fully automatic 12 ga. shotgun. Firing at 300 rounds per minute, this shotgun comes standard with a 32 round magazine. The AA-12’s gas system absorbs a large portion of the recoil generated by fully automatic shotgun fire. This combat shotgun is intended for military use, allowing soldiers to more effectively and safely clear a room:
