60 percent of young Americans plan to purchase firearms, study reveals 1062 941 Google +6 Reddit89 2129 23 By Scott Greer, on Jan 16, 2013 Sixty percent of high school and college students say they plan on owning guns at a later stage in life, an academic study from American University revealed on Monday.
According to a brand new study, sixty percent of young Americans plan on purchasing firearms in the future. According to the study, about 40 percent of the American students surveyed said they definitely planned to own firearms once they had established their own households. Another 20 percent said they were “contemplating” owning guns.
Those findings were part of a broader study conducted by American University professor Jennifer L. Lawless and Loyola Marymount professor Richard L. Fox which focused on the political opinions of young Americans. The study was conducted prior the recent Newtown massacre, but after the Aurora theatre shooting.
Lawless told Campus Reform on Tuesday that in her view the findings were proof that President Obama should move swiftly, and without the permission of Congress if necessary, in order limit the availability of firearms.
“The next generation plans on owning guns, so if we want to avoid the tragedies that we’ve seen… we obviously need to move quickly and if an executive order is the way to do it, then that is the way the to do it,” she said.
Lawless said the study was not prompted by the Aurora shooting, pointing to the fact that the study focused on a broad range of political opinions among young people which included firearms.
The study indicated that there is no significant difference between the percentage of high school and college students who are considering purchasing firearms. Both polled at about 60 percent.
Students who identified as Democrats were twice as likely to fear gun violence as those who were not, the study found. Only 33 percent of the respondents who were questioned were raised in households where guns were owned.
David Burnett, the public relations director of the conservative student group Students for Concealed Carry, told Campus Reform on Tuesday he was not surprised by the study’s result.
“With every single spree killing we’ve seen in this nation in the past twenty years, with every sexual assault that takes place, nine every day on college campuses, with every robbery report we have, with every campus that goes on lockdown, these gun free zones are proven to be indefensible and impractical,” he said.
“College campuses put pictures on the door and expect psychopaths to abide by them,” he continued. “I think more and more college students have been waking up to this reality in the past five years since Virginia tech and they don’t want it.”
While it's obvious that some people make secret deals to do bad things, this is why I've come to dislike conspiracy theorists.
Gene Rosen lives so close to Sandy Hook elementary school that he heard the bullets on that dreadful day. That day, he found six terrified children and their bus driver sitting at the end of his driveway. He brought them all into his house, giving them snacks and listening to their stories about the shootings at their school. Rosen, a retired psychologist, had no idea what had happened, attributing the gunshots to hunters. But as the children told him about the massacre, and about their teacher, Mrs. Soto, protecting them with her body, Rosen was struck by their courage. He felt that he had to tell the world about them. So he did. He became one of the faces of the event, granting numerous TV interviews describing that day and the six children he sheltered. Two songwriters even wrote a song about him and posted it on You Tube.
But the ugliness that is the Sandy Hook ‘truthers’ have found this gentle man and is attacking him ruthlessly. They are calling him a liar for the government and, unimaginably, a satanist. One of his attackers even went so far as to accuse him of actually sacrificing one of the children in his basement! He has been receiving hostile emails, some demanding to know how much he is being paid to lie. He has been jeered at in restaurants. Some of the nut-jobs have put up videos “exposing” Rosen’s “lies.” Now, with a ‘news’ anchor and a professor questioning the events of December 14th, the Sandy Hook ‘truther’ movement is gaining momentum, proving that some people are so stupid that they shouldn’t be allowed to leave their rooms. It’s getting to be too much for the 69-year-old, driving him to frustration and anger. And who could blame him?
Gene Rosen is a hero. He should be held up as the very model of how we should treat one another, especially in horrific circumstances like those children found themselves in on that awful day. Instead, pea-brained paranoids are overwhelming this man with their ignorant conspiracy theories. What in the name of ANY god would make someone believe that such a terrible thing could be a hoax? Or worse, a government operation? What kind of soul-sickness would make someone attack this man who did nothing more than protect children and tell of their bravery? This is something that needs to go viral, to protect Gene Rosen and shame the monsters who are attacking him. This must not stand.
Quotes seem to fit so many of the issues we are now facing
The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”
As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”
From gun control to abortion. Immigration to health care, Our governments have taken this approach with the people. Everything has been dumbed down and hammered at you. And they all do it. From the right, left, Republican, Democrat, Progressive Conservative, Liberal, Wildrose, Whigs, Tories...Hell name any political party. What does matter is that this is what our political leaders think of us. This is how they manipulate us. There is no respect anymore. No fear of the general masses.
Oh by the way. The above quotes.....They came from Hilter
I am a soldier. I know what war looks like, what it sounds like, smells like, what it feels like in my soul.
I stand today in the twilight of my nation’s grace, looking into the darkness of impending war.
My sleep is troubled, knowing what awaits, yet the ignorant and the ‘true believers’ sleep easily in their delusions, and I am saddened by it.
Daily, I see the Blackhawk and Apache helicopters flying over my city, the military vehicles which appear so frequently now on our roads, often with ‘guns up’ in violation of Posse Comitatus, and I know why they prepare, that it is not far off.
Nightly I hear the report of gunfire near my home, the noise angry men make as they prepare to boil over. These are not soldiers – they are but angry men. And though I share their well-justified anger, I am cautious with them, for they are not disciplined, and they know not the face of war, nor the burdens it imposes upon mind, body, and soul. Because of this, they are dangerous, and I am saddened by this – that dangerous men should roam the streets near my home, full of anger and the lust for vengeance.
All about me are the ceaseless murmurs of soulless politicians and media propagandists, who wear their agendas on their sleeves as a badge of superiority, and the boundless echoes of their contrived ‘message’ assaults me from all sides, even repeated from the mouths of dear friends, and I am saddened by it.
I bear witness to the fact that throughout my lifetime, the lifeblood of my republic has been drained away by greedy and self-serving men, from high to low, who contrive nought but deception against their neighbors and countrymen, and who fail to consider that their children and mine shall share the same fate, the same future, and I am saddened by it.
But I am a soldier, and I know what must be done; and so I shall put away my sadness and I shall harness up the bitter steed of war, and gird myself up for the battle; and I shall ride out to meet the enemies of Liberty; not in rage, not for anger sake or the hope of vengeance; but because I swore an oath before God, to jealously guard our Republic and its Constitution against all enemies; Him I shall not disappoint, for He is my Hope and my Trust.
Therefore, as much as my soul laments against the harsh truth before me, I make this declaration to my enemies who press me into this battle, that none shall be able to afterwards say “I did not know, you did not warn me”;
I do not care why you took that job with the government, or why you continue to hold it. I only know that you have become Judas and sold yourself to an oppressive state - your government office buildings and vehicles are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.
I do not care why, as a journalist, you choose to spin and corrupt the news, rather than report the plain truth and let the people judge for themselves. I only know that you have violated the public trust in the most vile and seditious manner, and thus your homes, offices, studios, vehicles, and any other place you may find yourself are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.
I do not care why you signed that union card. I only know that you pay dues to a communist organization which conducts treasonous works against my Republic daily – and so your union hall and your work-sites are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.
I do not care that you only voted for the traitor because you are elderly/disabled or otherwise dependent upon government largess. Are you so ignorant and/or disinterested that you could not see through their propaganda, to the fact that your sustenance was assured either way? What have you gained now that the public housing areas you live in, and the public facilities you depend on are part of the battlefield? Though I am a soldier, I can afford you little protection, for you have placed yourselves on the battlefield.
I know that all of these places and all of these people are part of the battlefield ,not just because I am a soldier, and have experienced a few battlefields in my day; but also because our President declares that even our own homes are on the battlefield, whether we wish them to be or not, and I have no choice but to believe him; it’s not just that the NDAA passed – a battlefield is not defined by law; it’s the profound build-up of martial power and resources across my once-great nation which tells me a battle is being prepared here. Over two billion rounds of ammunition procured by DHS and its sub-agencies in the past 18 months, plus machine guns in the tens of thousands, armored vehicles, combat aircraft, drones, and other implements of war being staged throughout our nation, our home – how do you explain that except as the preparation for battle?
I will fight not because I desire it, but because I cannot justify any other course of action – when the enemy attacks, you must fight – you must kill or you will die.
I smell you, my enemy; I can feel the ambush you have laid for me and my true countrymen, all about like a sticky spider’s web, yet we will not back down; and though you will kill some of us, you will not get us all before we have finished with you.
I stand here, ready, on the eve of battle, and I ask God why I have been brough to the threshold of this battlefield, about to be thrust in, when I though my soldiering days were through; and I am reminded that there is by His decree, a Time to Kill, as well as a Time to Die… who am I to question why?
For those who are willing, simply comment with the words “I will stand”, that the enemies of Liberty may know what they face, and perhaps relent - it is our duty first to serve peace, even if to do so we must make war.
LT ~Those who abuse Liberty, sentence themselves to Death!
Or lack thereof. Rated by engineers for some time now as a D. I don’t know what that means to you modern day, so-called students, since most of you knuckleheads are not graded. And that is so you don’t clearly understand that you are dumber than the guy next to you. Anyway, that means fuckered. The D I mean. Fuck it. You as well. But far more importantly, and something ELSE they don’t teach you in school. D is for, by DESIGN.
