Gun Violence Solutions To Gang Violence In America



Project Safe Neighborhoods Gun Violence SolutionsThere are a lot of heads working on the problem of gang violence in America, and on the larger topic of gun violence solutions. Unfortunately, however, science and reason often give way to political agendas and media propaganda when it comes to the matter of gun violence prevention.

Anti-gun violence organizations like Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) are based on the progressive ideal that the world would be better off without guns, that the guns are somehow responsible for killing people much like alcohol and cars… wait, what.  Sorry, wrong article.

Truthfully some of the PSN program initiatives, like actually prosecuting gun crimes, are great for supporters of the second amendment. But progressives even mess prosecuting gun crimes up.

If this were a video you would see that at this point of the article 30% of progressives have already walked out of the room… see their version of enlightenment isn’t about searching for truths but rather compliance. Onward.

We know that Obama frequently talked about the need to curb gun violence and crime, and to do it, he argued, we need more gun laws. At the same time (most progressive supporters don’t know) Obama and his band of power-freaks actually reduced gun crime prosecutions by over 30% while he was President!

So they argue, we need more gun laws and while we’re at it we’ll stop enforcing the ones we already have.

Gang Violence in America & Criminal Prosecutions

Putting that into more of a perspective, America’s 1st Freedom wrote:

“In 2014 in Chicago, over 2,500 people were shot—nearly 400 of them fatally—and police seized more than 6,252 guns. Yet out of those 6,252 guns seized, Fardon’s federal prosecutors saw fit to pursue just 62 weapons prosecutions. In other words, for every 100 guns police seized, federal prosecutors made just one prosecution.”

So on the one hand progressives argue that we need more guns laws to reduce gun crime, and on the other hand they simply reduce prosecuting gun crimes by more than 30% for the laws already on the books. I’m a simple man, you do the math.

That’s not enough for some, so let’s dive into this a little deeper. And this isn’t necessarily a gang violence solutions essay, but rather a place to begin a new discussion.

Insider Business Daily wrote an excellent editorial on gang violence in America, specifically talking about Chicago gang violence solutions. It starts with actually prosecuting gun crimes. They wrote:

“Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) shows that the Northern Illinois district ranked 90th out of 90 in prosecutions of federal weapons crimes per capita.

David Burnham, co-director of TRAC, states their analysis says that according to case-by-case U.S. Justice Department information obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, there were 52 federal gun prosecutions in Illinois North (Chicago) in 2012, or 5.52 per million in population.

By this measure, compared with the 90 federal judicial districts in the U.S., the prosecution rate in Chicago was the lowest in the country.”

So yes, most of the gun control hot air coming from progressives has to do with power and control, and also to a degree the euro-envy elites who want to impress their colleagues overseas, and very little to do with actually reducing gun crimes.

See my article on “How Many People Die From Guns” to see how silly the whole scare agenda of the fanatic left really is.

Gun Violence Solutions

So let’s get back to anti gun violence organizations (or put another way, those who hope to help reduce gun crime). In the Project Safe Neighborhood brochure called “Firearms in the Home“, they cite a 2008 article in the New England Journal of Medicine to tell you that when a firearm is stored in a home the possibility of homicide increases by up to 170 percent and suicide increases by up to 460 percent.

Holy moly! Seriously?

Since most guns are stored in the home and not in a phone booth I guess that makes sense. I mean, if you want to provide REAL data then you would go on to mention that a huge majority of those deaths are bad guy deaths, so not really the same as the message they’re trying to brainwash people with, is it?

You could word the same data like this. With a gun in your home your chances of killing a rapist or murderer (or some other baddy) increases by a whopping 170%.

In that same sentence by PSN mentioned above, to add further dramatic appeal, they include suicides as increasing by 460% with a gun in the home. Well, yea. If I have a choice between a gun and a rope I think I’ll take the gun. It’s more humane, too, but hey we won’t let a little humanity get in the way of a good scare.

Do you know what Japan, S. Korea, Austria, Finland, France, Belgium, and Poland have in common? Like many other countries, they have MUCH stricter gun laws than we do in the U.S.. But they also have a higher suicide rate than us. That kind of deflates the scare from all those suicide gun deaths, huh?

‘So, you’re saying those nasty guns have nothing to do with a person’s ability to commit suicide and to actually carry it out?’

Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying.

Ways To Reduce Gun Violence

Back to Project Safe Neighborhood and why I wrote this post. On November 1, 2016, U.S. District Judge Virginia Hernandez Covington found career criminal Ernest Vereen, Jr. guilty of Possession of a Firearm by an Armed Career Criminal following a two-day trial.

According to an ATF news brief:

“According to trial testimony, when officers from the Tampa Police Department confronted Vereen pursuant to an ongoing investigation, he reached for his firearm before ultimately complying with their demands. During the sentencing hearing, the judge described Vereen’s decades-long history of sexual and physical violence, noting that she was particularly concerned that Vereen targeted people with less physical strength than him, specifically women and, in one instance, a 4-year-old child. The judge explained her decision to sentence Vereen at the high-end of his guidelines range, explaining that the Court’s first obligation was to keep society safe.”

On March 10, 2017 the Judge very sternly handed down a sentence to 24 years and 5 months in federal prison for Vereen.

This is a great example of how the feds can start to make a dent in gun crimes.

For example, we know that because the fed made it a very serious crime to use a weapon or threat of a weapon during bank robberies, that today only a small percentage of bank robberies involve the use of a firearm.

In fact in 2015 only 21% of bank robberies involved the use of a firearm. This is a very clear case of using criminal punishment to alter behavior.

Federal bank robbery is covered under Title 18 section 2113 of the United States Code (18 USC 2113) as part of a comprehensive statute that has expanded to include other theft crimes as well. Under this law, federal bank robbery is defined as the “taking or attempted taking by force, intimidation, or extortion, of any property, money or any other thing of value belonging to, or in the care, custody, control, management or possession of any bank, credit union, or savings and loan association.”1

Subsection (d) of that statute brings the hammer… it states that anyone who assaults any person, or puts in jeopardy the life of any person by the use of a dangerous weapon or device while committing any offense described in subsections (a) or (b) is subject to a fine and up to twenty-five years imprisonment. Toy weapons and hoax bomb devices fall within the purview of this subsection.

That’s an extra 25 years in federal prison JUST for using a firearm or threat of a firearm, on TOP of the time you could get for the actual bank robbery. In effect, when combined with other felonies, it becomes a life sentence for many which is why this law has worked and many lives have been saved as a result of it.

Reduce Gun Violence, Not Individual Liberties

Solutions To Gun ViolenceI’m a huge supporter of the NRA because they’re fighting to help you and I keep our right to self-defense. I’m going to quote their article again and let it sum up my feelings on this.

“Here’s the upshot: Chicago isn’t enforcing its gun laws against criminals. Cook County isn’t enforcing its gun laws against criminals. The federal government isn’t enforcing its gun laws against criminals. As a direct result, armed, dangerous criminals are being bounced back to the streets … violent crime is skyrocketing in Chicago … and while the city explodes into a firestorm of violence, and the fire trucks sit idle and empty in their stations, the political class is trying to take away the public’s fire extinguishers—your right to keep and bear arms.”

Gun violence solutions must include stopping the “people” who commit crimes and not simply removing rights of citizens because it makes progressives feel better. I know there are obviously deeper and longer-term big picture social issues that must be addressed, but the point of this article is not reducing personal liberties because it makes us feel better than to actually lock people in jail for crimes against humanity.

What do you think? Do we need more gun laws or is there a better solution that I’m overlooking or haven’t considered?

The Nighthawk TRS Comp Pistol



The Nighthawk TRS Comp Pistol

The new TRS Comp pistol from Nighthawk Custom is a full-sized, government frame 9mm double stack built around a match grade barrel and a monolithic slide. It’s built to compete and starts at $4,599.

The TRS Comp comes standard with a recon rail under the barrel and a dimpled rear cocking design that offers ample traction when racking the slide. It also sports unique dimpled frame and slide textures that match the grip pattern.

Integrated Compensator

The TRS Comp is Nighthawk Custom’s first full-size pistol designed around a double stack frame. It features a 17+1 capacity and incorporates Nighthawk’s Fire Hawk compensator, which boasts a precision-designed port that reduces muzzle flip for quicker follow up shots.

This model also features a unique dimpling texture found throughout the slide and grip, which provides ample grip while being snag-free during holstering. The TRS Comp uses a 14K gold bead front sight that does an excellent job catching light, coupled with a Heinie Ledge Black rear sight for quick target acquisition.

The pistol also features Nighthawk Customs’ Interchangeable Optic System (IOS), which is a dedicated dovetail machined onto the slide and allows for optic mounting with adapters. This system allows for an interchangeable series of sight options to quickly switch rear sights in a matter of seconds.

Interchangeable Optic System

Nighthawk Custom’s Interchangeable Optic System allows a user to switch from a plate with a traditional rear sight to a red-dot optic in seconds. This feature is especially beneficial for concealed-carry practitioners who want to train with a red-dot but still carry a traditional rear sight.

Nighthawk’s unique IOS system involves milling the top rear section of their slide to interface with an interchangeable series of sight options, including a Trijicon RMR and other red-dot sights. This low-profile system also incorporates a suppressor-height rear sight as a backup to the optic’s front sight.

The TRS Comp features a match grade 5.00′′ barrel on a government sized frame with a monolithic slide, a full-length dust cover and an integrated single-port compensator. This combination reduces muzzle flip and delivers faster follow-up shots on the range, a must-have for competitive shooters.

The TRS Comp is finished in black nitride for a sleek, durable look. The lightweight aluminum trigger possesses a serrated flat face and a gold bead front sight does an excellent job catching light, providing quick target acquisition. A Heinie Ledge Black rear sight completes the package.

Match Grade Barrel

One of the most important features of any match pistol is a properly fitted barrel. A true match grade barrel will have zero play in the muzzle or at the hood, and it should glide into battery smoothly without any drag or snag on the slide.

This is achieved by carefully fitting the barrel to all of the chamber hood contact surfaces and the lower locking lug. Once this is done it will have a true target fit and shoot groups that rival a 1911 handgun.

The TRS Comp is the first Nighthawk Custom model to be designed around a double stack frame, offering 17+1 capacity and using their integrated compensator, the fire hawk. The compensator has a precision port that reduces muzzle flip and helps shooters stay on target for follow up shots.

Unique Dimpled Texture

The TRS Comp is the newest addition to Nighthawk’s line up. It is a high-end double stack 1911 that packs a 17+1 punch, as well as a lot of style and class. It also happens to be the most accurate and durable gun in its caliber. It also comes in a variety of colors and finishes, from matte black to high-shine chromium. Its crown jewel is the aforementioned patented integrated compensator, which may be the best thing to happen to your sidearm in years. It is a real head turner, especially for those who don’t usually opt for the sexy gun. The aforementioned gizmo is accompanied by a precision designed port in the rear of the slide that reduces muzzle flip without sacrificing a hefty amount of power. The aforementioned gizmo features a matching name badge aft of the slide, as well as a match-grade 5″ barrel and a full-length dust cover with accompanying nifty-fun accessory rail.

AGP Arms PC Charger Brace



AGP Arms PC Charger Brace

The PC Charger is a pistol chambered in 9mm, and it can take Glock magazines. It is very popular and has become more of a sought-after gun than the original carbine.

Many owners of the PC Charger equip it with a brace to give it stability. This makes it a lot more shootable.

Ruger PC Charger

Ruger’s PC Charger is a pistol-caliber carbine (PCC) that combines the fun and utility of an AR style pistol with the reliability and accuracy of a high capacity AR. Designed to take both Ruger Security 9 and Glock magazines, the PC Charger is a highly customizable weapon that makes a great range gun or home defense tool.

Adding a brace to the PC Charger increases its stability and makes it more shootable. The brace can be attached to the MIL STD 1913 rail on the back of the pistol.

The SB Tactical FS1913 Brace is one of the best PC Charger braces available today. It is made of a polymer material that offers quick deployment and a lightweight profile.

This brace is perfect for a shooter who is new to pistol braces, and is looking for a compact and inexpensive option. It is also a good choice for people who are already familiar with the design and use of a buffer tube.

AGP Arms

The AGP Arms brace kit for the Ruger PC Charger is the best way to upgrade the standard stock and barrel. The brace is the logical extension of AGP’s acclaimed pistol grip Gen 2 stock and handguard, allowing users to customize their pc charger to their own specifications. The brace is the brainchild of a dedicated team of military and law enforcement personnel, many of whom have been in the trenches for longer than most of us will ever know. Featuring a modern twist on a classic design, the brace is an understated delight. Its most prominent feature is a cleverly engineered gearbox that enables the user to rotate the entire gun by hand, and then lock it into place using a single pin. The aforementioned pin is mounted in the rear of the gun, where it is tucked under a protective cover for safekeeping. In keeping with the aforementioned design, the brace is also anodized black for a look you can be proud of.

SB Tactical

SB Tactical is the inventor of pistol stabilizing braces. They were started in 2012 by Army veteran Alex Bosco after he designed a brace for his disabled friend so he could continue to shoot.

SB Tactical was the first to introduce adjustable pistol stabilizing braces. This was a big win for the industry and gun owners alike.

After getting pre approval from the ATF, they began selling pistol braces for AR/AK style firearms, CZ Scorpions, H&K MP5 designs, 1913 rails, and more.

The SBA3 is one of the best pistol braces on the market and offers 5-position adjustable adjustment, ambidextrous QD sling attachment points, and a Velcro strap to connect to your arm for one-handed shooting.

The SBA4 is another great choice and offers a sturdy M4-style strut, 5-position adjustable, and an integral QD sling socket. This is an excellent option for a Ruger PC Charger gun with a Glock drum, but it also works well on any pistol without a buffer tube.

Midwest Industries

Midwest Industries is a family owned and operated company that manufactures quality parts, uppers, lowers, rails, barrels, furniture and muzzle devices for AR platforms and many other firearms. They also have a number of innovative products and services that make them a great choice for those looking to upgrade their firearms.

Probably the most useful item that they manufacture is their Combat Rail Handguard in hard coat anodized 6061 aluminum. It features eight functional M-LOK slots and two anti-rotation sling swivels. Its hefty price tag might be a turn off, but its high performance and robust construction is well worth the outlay.

What you might not have known is that they also make the pc charger brace aka the FS1913. Basically the same as the name aforementioned but a lot more durable and the brace actually folds to a compact size for easy transport. They even include a nice looking sling with an integrated bottle opener to boot.

Mini Mamba – A YouTube Star With a Net Worth of $1-5 Million



Mini Mamba

Mini Mamba is a famous YouTube Star who has earned a fortune as a professional. He has a net worth of $1-5 Million at the age of 11 years old.

Mambas are venomous snakes of the family Elapidae, which also includes coral snakes and cobras. They live throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

Black mamba

Black mambas are venomous snakes that are found in Africa. They can grow to up to 14 feet in length and are one of the longest venomous snakes in the world.

They are very fast and aggressive, and their venom is particularly deadly for humans. It takes only about 20 minutes for a bite from a black mamba to kill a person.

They live in grassland, savanna and rocky slopes of southern and eastern Africa. They are primarily diurnal and prey on small rodents. They have excellent vision and a highly developed sense of smell.

Green mamba

Green mambas are found in coastal areas of eastern Africa including Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania and South Africa. These snakes are venomous, which makes them extremely dangerous to humans.

They are a diurnal species, which means they are active during the day. They also spend a great deal of time in the trees and rainforests of western Africa, where they live amongst the forest canopy and thickets.

This snake preys on birds, lizards and small mammals. Its venom isn’t as powerful as the venom of the black mamba or the red mamba, but it can still kill.

Green mambas breed during the rainy season. Females lay eggs, which hatch in about 10-12 weeks. Males seek out and compete for females by following a scent trail or by wrestling or dancing. These combats aren’t biting, but rather a way for the two snakes to establish dominance over each other.

Red mamba

The red mamba is a species of snake that lives in Africa. It is related to the black mamba and can be found in various countries throughout the continent.

It is a medium-sized snake that can grow to be 2 m long. They are mainly found in tree hollows and termite mounds.

They are very venomous and kill their prey quickly. Their venom is highly toxic and can affect the breathing, heart and muscle function of the victim.

They can also paralyze their prey, which they then swallow. They feed primarily on birds and small mammals.

Yellow mamba

The mamba is an African snake. There are four species: black mamba, green mamba, red mamba and yellow mamba.

The Eastern green mamba (Dendroaspis angusticeps), formerly known as the white-mouthed mamba, is a venomous snake that lives in coastal regions of East Africa. It is found from Kenya south through Tanzania, Malawi, and eastern Zambia.

The eastern green mamba is a shy snake that avoids humans when possible and only strikes if provoked or cornered. Its habitat is fragmented in parts of its range and it is listed as Vulnerable by South Africa due to habitat destruction and deforestation.

Blue mamba

Mambas are notorious for their speed and aggression, and they come in a wide variety of species. They are a common sight in Africa’s rainforests, and all have deadly venom.

Of the four types of mambas, the most venomous and dangerous is the black mamba. Known for its lightning-fast speed, erratic behavior, and painful bite, it can strike multiple times in a matter of seconds.

Its venom is highly neurotoxic and cardiotoxic, with fasciculins present to paralyze the muscles of a bite victim. The venom can kill a victim within hours of a bite.
