Gun Fight: 'Just do something'
Gun control debate reignited

The cry rang out all across the country in the days following the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

And so began the latest chapter in one of the longest-running debates in American culture.

The gun fight.


Do you think you know what it's like to be a victim of gun violence? Dawn Nasewicz knows all too well.

“I remember the coroner coming in and telling me he was gone. Worst night of my life.”

The memory of that night 12 years ago does not leave Nasewicz. Her son, Aaron Coyle, was shot and killed on a Johnstown street the night after Christmas.

“Extremely senseless, there was no reason for Aaron to be shot,” Nasewicz recalled. “The guy walked away from him. Aaron was on the ground...He shot him and there was no reason.”

According to the most recent Pennsylvania State Police statistics, a firearm was used in 89% of homicides committed in Pennsylvania in 2011.

That same report shows that nearly 607,000 firearms were purchased, or ownership transferred.

We don't know if the gun used to kill Aaron Coyle was one of them.

Much of the gun debate today surrounds the so-called assault weapons, like the AR-15, the gun used in Newtown. But experts say those guns are rarely used to commit crimes.

“What our research shows is maybe 2-to-8 percent of firearm homicides involve an assault weapon,” said Greg Ridgeway of the National Institute of Justice. “Even if you eliminate those, the perps in homicides will replace them with other forms of handguns. It would be a less lethal handgun, but they'd probably still have access to a firearm of some kind.”

Bob Turkovich is the proprietor of Cove Creek Outfitters in Bedford.

“Knock on wood, I've never sold a gun that's been used in a crime,” he said.

And he's sold a lot of guns. Thousands of guns in an average year, he said. Since the talk of a possible gun ban, business at his store has tripled.

He says a lot of people from different backgrounds are buying guns these days.

“Women are buying guns,” he said. “Their husbands come in and they're buying guns. A lot of first time buyers. A lot of people who've bought guns in the past are adding to their repertoire.”

Guns shops all over the country have been booming with business since talk of a gun ban resurfaced.

Turkovich said he can't keep certain types of guns in stock.

“Manufacturers are overwhelmed,” he said. “Like myself they can't plan for a rush on something. It's like if you go to a grocery store before a storm and try to buy milk or bread. It's gone.”

The United States ranks number one in the world in the number of guns per capita. Americans buy millions of guns every year from nearly 130,000 federally licensed firearms dealers.

According to a recent Time/CNN poll, 49% of homes in America have a gun.

As 6 News found out, in Pennsylvania, it's very easy to buy a gun.

That part of the story will be posted tomorrow.

I saw more of her interview that they are suppose to be showing on the 11PM news. She actually says that she doesn't believe that any more gun laws would have saved her son. That if a bad guy wants a gun, they will get one, so banning firearms won't work either.

Actually I was a bit surprised by the bit they put on. They showed that banning 30 round mags were a waste, cause a guy with two 10 round mags could reload extremely quickly.

They announced that only 2% to 8% of crimes committed with firearms are long guns. Most are pistols.

They talked to a local gun dealer who explained that women were buying guns like crazy now too. He used a good example too. "The possible gun ban has the same effect as when they are calling for a snow storm, and people rush out to buy milk and bread anticipating the storm."

Actually, I thought they put out a rather fair report for a news agency. Could have been a lot worse.

Is there any more doubt that the Leftard Media is American Pravda?

Is there any more doubt that this gun control assault was the final chapter of fast and furious and has been years in planning?

Is there any more doubt who OMao & Co. are and what they are up to ?

If so, you need to see the wizard for a brain.

Before F&F was made public, Obama and company were pushing the blame of Mexico's gun violence on American gun owners. That was their reasoning for making new regulations regarding border state FFLs. Then as soon as F&F broke, the blame-game disappeared.

Ironically, very few if any of those 607,000 firearms were likely used in that 89% of homicides.....

Interesting how they slap those two sentences together when they are really completely unrelated.

Yup. This part right here belies the gun grabbers intent of this written portion of the "reporting":

Talk about jumping hoops to make a connection....
