PAGE NINE -- No. 115
by Alan Korwin, Author
Gun Laws of America



I've created this special feature for the print media and broadcasters ("Page Nine" regardless of where it runs),
that covers stories afresh, not the way news rooms typically flavor things. It will help reduce the distrust
so many news consumers feel and could be the most avidly followed item you carry -- if you carry it.
It certainly is well received by my audience. This casual sample might make you say, "We'll NEVER run that!"
but Page Nine is built around ad revenues from clear-thinking mainstream businesses.

The Uninvited Ombudsman Report, September 26, 2012
by Alan Korwin, Bloomfield Press

-- Tell your friends -- Permission to circulate granted --

1- Meet me at the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Orlando, Florida!
Friday, Sep. 28 - Sun. Sep. 30, 2012
Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport Hotel
No charge to attend. More than $100 worth of free books, refreshments, receptions.
The most stellar array of gun-rights advocates assembled all year.

Meet Alan Gura, lead attorney in the Heller and McDonald Supreme Court Cases.
Meet the attorney representing George Zimmerman in the Florida self-defense case.
The people making a difference nationwide will be there.
Learn to be more effective as a rights advocate.

This report will be a little short,
as I hasten to make my flight.


2- There are no "guns on the street"

This is another example of a gun-controller myth that gets in the way of real solutions, and points to the need for gun-control counseling. The gun controllers' fears are so great they interfere with arriving at real solutions.

There are guns in the hands of criminals, living in ghettos (a forbidden word in "polite" politically correct society, where power is wielded and reality is whitewashed), despite laws strictly forbidding guns in the hands of criminals. That's as close as this phrase ("guns on the street") can be applied. What is missing is law enforcement, not law. The gun-controllers' very language masks the real problems. Examine their language in the media --, and language use in general --

My offer stands to meet with national "gun-control" advocates at a time and place of their choosing, and confront the main control issue of the day. Take me up on my offer.


Drinking Freedom by the Big Gulp

New York City's anti-rights mayor has pushed through his freedom-to-drink ban, forcing people to buy only small-caliber beverages. NYC stores will be thumbing their noses (sticking out their tongues?) at Mayor Bloomberg's nanny-state soft-drink management plan. The smart ones will be selling two or three government-dictated small drinks (at big-gulp-size discounts), with free empty large cups. (This has a fringe benefit of using extra paper products and supporting the timber industries. Freedom always finds a way.)  Getting one full-sized drink in three or four cups will cost slightly more than a normal drink used to cost, but it increases a food store's earnings and stimulates the economy (at a cost to consumers) so it's not all bad. Only mostly bad.


3- Model Laws We Need

Two more proposals to add to the growing list.
While it is critically important to get your legislators to REPEAL laws,
it is also important to press for laws that will help set things straight.

Disposition of Confiscated Firearms
When a firearm is confiscated from a person, by a peace officer or other person with apparent authority to do so, the person making the confiscation, or that person's immediate superior, must ensure that the firearm is returned in a timely manner when the reason for the confiscation is resolved. If the firearm is not returned in a timely manner as established by the legislature, the person responsible for its return shall be fined, or for excessive delay, imprisoned, for a length of time as determined by the legislature.

Deceptive Denial of Rights
Posting a sign that falsely denies the right to keep and bear arms, or misleads a person into believing that firearms are forbidden in a place where the right to keep and bear arms is intact, is a class 1 misdemeanor for a first offense.

Wrong way to draft such a law (and how legislators usually do it): It shall be illegal to post a sign that bans guns where they are not illegal to possess. Right way (and how we're going to start making them do it): Anyone who posts a sign that bans gun where they are not illegal shall go to jail and pay a fine.

Florida has enacted such a law, and bureaucrats statewide scrambled to remove all their rights-denial signs the night before the law took effect. The hoplophobic, tyrannical, wet-their-pants, petty despots did their best to scare everyone into obeying their fear-mongering chicken-little blood-in-the-streets terror tantrums. To their dismay, the signs died, but no people died. All is well. We all need such laws. I'll get a copy of their bill and pass it around.

Read a collection of Model Laws, some of which have already been enacted. Your state could be next.


After You Shoot:
Your gun's hot. The perp's not. Now what?

I can boil down my latest book to these four lines:

• It's always better to avoid a gunfight than to win one.

• It's always better to win one than to lose one.

• If innocent life doesn't immediately depend on it, don't shoot.

• And if it does, don't miss.

Before you drop the hammer, remember:
You will write a check for your life savings to your lawyer.
Don't do that unless your life depends on it.

4. Do YOU Support "Universal Background Checks"?

The anti-gun-rights crowd is promoting the idea that 74% of NRA members support reasonable, common-sense, universal background checks on all gun transfers. Do you? Does it sound "reasonable" to you? (The number is a complete fabrication, invented from thin air -- no such survey has ever been conducted, one NRA contact calls it absurd.)

"Universal background checks" would mean every firearms transfer -- father to son, husband and wife, brother to brother, neighbors, friends, even hunting buddies, people at a range, and of course, the freedom of normal gun shows -- would all fall under total FBI and BATFE government control, in the name of crime control.

These agencies that cooperated in the deadly Fast and Furious scandal would experience astronomical growth in the process. Every sale or even free transfer would require filings and clearance with central command. No one could get a gun without a government OK.

That is certainly not what the Founders envisioned when they wrote the Second Amendment. In fact, is the exact opposite of what got the American Revolution started and why we have the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today. But it is what the anti-rights anti-gun lobby is pushing for. Sometimes they call it "closing the gunshow loophole" -- until you read the bills they're drafting.

If that's going to happen, and the enemies of freedom along with some misguided percentage of our own allies are calling for it, then we need this:


Death to NICS.
Up with BIDS.

Works Better.
No Government Registration List.

If a background check in this modern day and age is going to hold sway and swing popular opinion into policy;
If a background check is a way to keep guns away from criminals who want to buy their guns at retail and pay the sales tax;
Then do it without compiling names of innocent gun owners.
That's only reasonable and common sense.

Even if the folly of universal background checks never goes from the minds of hoplophobes to the floors of legislatures, the expensive, list-compiling registry that is NICS needs to be eliminated. Sooner would be better than later.

Government registration of gun owners (an unverifiable part of NICS background checks) is the first step to every genocide committed in the 20th Century. Every one. We know that can't happen here, right? And we're not even going to tempt fate. No government registration of gun owners. It serves no legitimate purpose. It expends vast amounts of scarce resources on tracking the innocent. And there's no need. Innocent gun-owner lists have no crime-fighting component, but at least they're extremely expensive --

BIDS does an equal job of preventing prohibited possessors from buying guns. It costs far less -- totally eliminates the expensive call centers. Reduces downtime and delays legitimate dealers and customers must now endure. And it cannot make lists of buyers. Dealers simply reference the encrypted password-protected prohibited possessor list on their local computers with simple volatile search tools, offline. It's like using a computerized yellow pages. The list itself is updated constantly, as it is now.

Hey, just like you, I don't want some mass murderer out on bleeding-heart parole walking into a gun store and coming out with a smokewagon. Gun owners are a common-sense reasonable crowd, just like anyone. It is time to scrap NICS for BIDS, and move this debate to a better place. Sure, the authorities and those with a vested interest will throw up every obstacle known to man, to stop this great improvement. Sure, a gun store could skip the system and sell to crooks, just like they can under NICS, and risk their licenses and long hard prison time. Sure there will be hard cases that will require referral to agents for extra checking and extra time, just like now.

Death to NICS.
Up with BIDS.
More freedom always is a good thing.
Fight the anti-rights calls for gunshow loops and holes
with counter call for BIDS, money-saving efficiency,
less government and freedom from Big Brother.

And look -- before you start shouting at me --
BIDS ain't perfect, we all know that, but it's as good first step.
Getting rid of NICS is essential, and it won't happen
without an intermediary step. Ask me about what comes
after BIDS...

6- Outdoor Sports Huge

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

What has a population the size of California (37 million), and a budget the size of the sales of iPhone and iPad worldwide ($90 billion), and gets virtually no mainstream news coverage, all year long? If something that big was hidden from view that well, would it distort the voting public's impression of what's important?

In a report ignored outside industry trade outlets, the National Shooting Sports Foundation announced that members of Congress were briefed on the recently released data from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 2011 National Survey on Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife Associated Recreation to compare hunting and fishing participation and expenditures to mainstream industries. The 10% average increase in hunting and fishing over the 2006 report figures is economic good news somehow overlooked by the "news" media.

"The economic impact of hunting and fishing is profound," noted Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), Republican Senate Co-Chair of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, at the briefing. "People don't think about hunting and fishing in terms of economic growth," stated Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Democratic Senate Co-Chair of the CSC. And they won't, since the media didn't convey the story.

The guns, ammo and archery gear hunters buy annually is $6 billion, the same as the bicycle business, and much of it goes to businesses based in the U.S. keeping people employed in high paying steady manufacturing and related jobs. On the ground land conservation and restoration from sportsmen activity fees and taxes is $3 billion ($95 a second). The "news" media could not be reached for comment. No, that's not right. They didn't get the memo. Uhh, they were asleep at the switch. You know what it really is? They hate this subject and they hate you and they hate everything you stand for. And they think they're all peaceful and nice and the you are filled with hate.


7- AP Abandons Accuracy

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Read the caption again -- It does not describe the photo.

In a move that no longer surprises anyone, but which the casual observer (you) no longer sees, the Associated Press abandons accuracy for reasons which remain unclear. With total disregard for their readers or for journalistic integrity, the AP, similar to their colleagues in other forms of "news" media, will tell you one thing while showing you something completely unrelated, and the sheeple simply soak it up.

An accurate caption for the photo above would have to abandon the first clause ("Looking to renew his campaign"), because it has no connection to the photo whatsoever. It is actually a backhanded slap and editorial judgment, suggesting something is wrong and this man's campaign is hurting, giving advantage to the man he is challenging. The remaining portion, if accuracy were any concern, would have to read, "GOP presidential candidate Romney handles his coat by the door of a vehicle," showing how vapid a picture the vaunted AP chose to use in showing a man running for the most powerful office on the planet (we do own the most H-Bombs).

He is not shown boarding a plane. He is not boarding anything. It is not even clear from the photo that he is at an airport, or that it is Saturday, or that he is in San Diego, we just have to, hmm, take AP's word for it, whatever that's worth. Using this photo caption as a guide, it isn't worth much. No correction is expected. The AP has become a national disgrace.


8- Movie Trailer Inflames Associated Press

The lamestream media told you:
The lamestream media told you:

My local paper, the #2 rag in the Gannett empire, along with papers nationwide, ran this:

"Fury over an anti-Islam film spread across the Muslim world Friday, with deadly clashes near near Western embassies in Tunisia and Sudan, and American fast-food restaurant set ablaze in Lebanon... (Lee Keath, AP, 9/15/12 "Anti-U.S. furor rages in Mideast")...  al-Qaida's most active branch in the Middle East called for more attacks on U.S. embassies Saturday to 'set the fires blazing,' seeking to co-opt outrage over an anti-Muslim film..." (Maamoun Youssef, AP 9/16/12, Yemen branch lauds violence, urges copycat assaults)...  "The leader of the militant Hezbollah group exhorted hundreds of thousands of supporters in a rare appearance Monday to keep up the campaign against an anti-Islam video that has unleashed deadly violence and anger at the United states across the Muslim world... (Zeina Karam, AP, 9/18/12 Anti-U.S. protests spreading)...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

A laughable amateurish movie TRAILER released in JUNE (the movie itself has NOT been released), with hokey acting, kindergarten-level costuming, fake beards too chintzy for K-Mart, bad dubbing, a nearly incoherent script, in English without subtitles that illiterate Arabs could not understand, is being blamed by the Associated Press, attributed to jihadis and by the current administration for islamist jihadis' coordinated attacks on Western interests in the middle east, carefully timed around the anniversary of the muslim global jihad perpetrated in America on September 11, 2001. See the silly film:

The American president, Barack Hussein Obama, whose Arabic middle name we are not supposed to mention and which is UNIVERSALLY suppressed by the lamestream media for fears of associating him with his somewhat muslim roots, has his entire administration perpetrating the delayed film-trailer-caused-rioting myth, despite any evidence to the contrary. Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose middle name the lamestream pack media UNIVERSALLY uses to show they are not anti-feminist, is leading the delayed movie-trailer-myth propaganda campaign. Both Hussein and Rodham are featured in an Urdu-captioned advertisement in Pakistan disavowing any association with the movie trailer. Pakistanis reportedly do not understand this since, in Pakistan, all released films are government approved.

In other news, the president of Libya said his government sources confirmed that the attacks were a coordinated effort celebrating the Sep. 11 attacks on America and were not a spontaneous attack arising from discontent among muslims over a three-month-old amateur film trailer. The administration downplayed or simply ignored the Libyan president's remarks. Members of the international intelligence community, according to CNN, similarly doubted the administration's explanations of the assaults. Also unexplained is how the extreme murderous anger of the Arab-Muslim-Islamist-Islamic-Hezbollah-Al-Qaida-Libyan-Egyptian-Tunisian-Middle-Eastern-Pakistani-Sudanese-Indonesian-Lebanese-Hamas-Jihadi-Extremist-AndSoOn factions was kept under wraps for three months so it all could explode in coordinated attacks spontaneously around nine-eleven by coincidence. Meanwhile, reporters nationwide were caught asking incredulous questions of sources, seeking to find out if the attacks were just coincidentally occurring on September 11, the anniversary of the glorious jihad in the United States.

In other news, a CNN reporter found murdered Ambassador Chris Steven's journal in the ruins of the Benghazi embassy, three days after it was assaulted and trashed. The Hussein-Obama administration had no immediate answers as to why the embassy had been so poorly protected during the assault that left the Ambassador and three other Americans dead, or why reporters were able to roam around the ruins and find the journal, three days later, with no guards, no marines, no Libyan soldiers, no FBI and no crime scene protection. The State Department issued a stern rebuke to CNN for finding the journal, which CNN did not quote from but did use as a reference, and turned over to Stevens' family. The president could not be reached for comment, because he was scheduled to appear on Letterman, Beyonce, The View, and had to avoid world leaders at the U.N. Why U.S. officials did not find the journal first is unexplained as we go to press. And astounding.

According to the Obama administration, reported by the AP and other lamestream outlets, Libyans carried Ambassador Stevens' body to safety after he was murdered because people were outraged over a movie made in the U.S. According to Libyan TV and posted on the web, the Ambassador's body was not treated with the decorum American's were led to believe.

In other news, Piss Christ, a photograph of a crucifix displayed in a jar of urine went back on display at the Edward Nayhem Gallery in Manhattan. The White House issued no statement. The artist, Andres Serrano, lives in New York and is not in hiding like the filmmaker.
Mr. Hussein-Obama's polling results in the upcoming election appear unaffected by the events, which he termed a bump in the road.


9- Hoplophobia Remains Repressed

The lamestream media told you:
The lamestream media told you:

The fight over entries into the mental-disorder directory is heating up.
Many of the disorders, like deciding what's a planet, are judgment calls,
not measurable science. They do not hide this fact.
What this means is that real disorders can get overlooked for decades,
and trendy and cultural disorders can get surreal attention.
So says Dr. Darrel Regier...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

While groups are lobbying to get marginal and questionable disorders into the official directory of mental disorders, the firearms and medical communities are falling down on the job of campaigning to get hoplophobia a well-known and politically damaging scourge the recognition and treatment its sufferers so desperately need.

The abject terror many people experience when even mentioning guns is often channeled into the political realm, where it literally affects legislation, infringes on fundamental human rights that have been part of the nation fabric since its inception, and attack the strongest underpinnings of a free society. The nation expends huge resources in political battles when psychological counseling is obviously at least a consideration.

It is often posited from within a small segment of the medical community that the core staff working on DSM-5, and indeed the medical professional as a whole is largely hoplophobic, and that this freezes out any serious consideration of the disorder. It would be funny if it weren't so serious, a sort of doctor-heal-thyself conundrum.

Read Dr. Sarah Thompson's seminal thesis on the subject, or Dr. Bruce Eimer's commentaries.

Idea: Ask YOUR doctor, dentist, gynocologist, whatever for an opinion about hoplophobia next time you have an appointment. You're paying the salary. That's your professional adviser. Get service. Ask. Tell me what you hear. I'll spread the word. And your doc will think.

Medical doctor, name withheld on request: "The psych establishment is, well, hoplophobic, and I suspect any effort to get hoplophobia recognized as a serious diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual would be a wasted one."

Dr. Eimer describes the disorder concisely in a note to a reader:

"You are welcome. As a psychologist, I have been treating people with the emotional disorder of phobias for over 30 years.
Phobias are emotional disorders characterized by an irrational fear of specific situations, activities or objects. They all
have an underlying psychodynamic mechanism.

"Weapons phobias originate typically in childhood as a result of traumatic experiences that lead the afflicted individual to
feel markedly vulnerable around knives, guns, sticks, etc. They do not necessarily stem from the phobic person's being a victim
of an assault although in many instances that is the case. Often, hoplohobics were abused emotionally and/or physically as children.
As a result of their fears of annihilation, they feel vulnerable and angry. They both fear others and themselves such that if they
were to lose control, they would be a menace too. The adult rationalization defense mechanism makes it safer to displace these fears
on to an inanimate object such as a gun. Hence, the psychological unconscious really believes that guns have agency and kill. The
idea of factoring bad people into the equation: gun + bad person = destruction does not occur to the psychological unconscious.
It is too threatening to the psychological unconscious. It's less threatening CONSCIOUSLY to blame problems on inanimate objects."

And a reply:

"I had never before made the connection between hoplophobia and projection. It's obvious enough that some people are terrified of firearms and some are terrified of anyone having firearms but it never crossed my mind that someone would be terrified that they themselves could have access to firearms!"

Dr. Eimer again:

Many gun control advocates believe that only two types of folks have guns -- cops and criminals. I grew up in New York City where this was and still is the prevailing view. People who believe that non-sworn citizens should not be allowed to own guns also tend to believe that anyone who owns a gun and is not a cop is a suspect.

Thus, you often hear the sarcastic refrain from people whose lives have been threatened: "What should I do, buy a gun?" Most of these folks fear firearms due to ignorance and their socialization. However, there is a larger group of folks who have an irrational fear (aka, "phobia") of firearms (aka, "hoplophobia").

I have met and also treated many such folks. As a board-certified licensed clinical psychologist with over 30 years of clinical and academic experience, I think hoplophobia should be added as a diagnostic category to the Anxiety and Phobia Disorders section of the soon to be published revised edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-DSM-V.

Given my dual clinical and academic training as both a Behavioral and Psychoanalytic/Freudian psychologist and psychotherapist, I know that "hoplophobia" (fear of firearms or firearm phobia) is real. It is as real as arachnophobia (fear of spiders), ophidiophobia (snake phobia), dentophobia (fear of dentists), aichmophobia (needle phobia), androphobia (fear of men), cynophobia (dog phobia), entomophobia (fear of insects), and ideophobia (fear of ideas). However, hoplophobia may be more widespread than all of the above mentioned with the exception of ideophobia, and unlike most of these other phobias, hoplophobia pervades every level of our society and poses a serious threat to our Constitutional Second Amendment and First Amendment rights.

As a clinical psychologist, I know that what hoplophobics really fear is their own conscious and unconscious murderous rage. As with the psychodynamics of every true phobia, the hoplophobic person's psychological defense mechanisms unconsciously project his or her murderous rage onto other people and objects. In this case, the objects of choice are firearms. Only some hoplophobics are insightful enough to recognize, as one pro-gun control physician stated that, "I don't own a gun because if I did, I'd definitely shoot someone."  He is right. He and others like him should definitely NOT own firearms. But, this is not a matter for legislation. It is about having good sense and perhaps, psychotherapy - because after all, that is what good psychotherapeutic treatment is all about.

The source for the hoplophobia post is my blog:


In other news, "sleeplessness" is now enough of a recognized occupational medical disorder to have an official designation, and has a new side-effect-laden drug available for treatment, featured in full-page color advertisements nationwide. "Shift Work Disorder (SWD)" is what may happen if you work the night shift, and medical science has come up with a treatment. Most people know that if you work nights, you might wind up sleepy, and now you can ask your doctor for a drug, whose side effects, according to the ad, can be life threatening. Nuvigil (Armodafinil) is available with a prescription, and may...

Comments help keep me going. Alan.

I just saw "The Bourne Legacy" last night. Entertaining flick. At the end of the film we got the now standard "no animals were harmed" and the new politically correct "reduced carbon footprint" disclaimer. Now there's a disclaimer about smoking--the gist is that even though smoking is portrayed in the movie you shouldn't smoke because it's bad for you. I looked at my wife and asked, "Now, how many people did they kill in that movie? Where's the disclaimer about mimicking THAT behavior?!" (Jon G.)

Mr. Korwin, It's worse than you describe. Waiting periods did not merely do nothing to reduce violent crime, they enhanced it and ensured its success as countless women (and men, too) who discovered they needed a gun for self defense then discovered that the waiting period ensured a distressingly long opportunity for the object of their fear to realize his goals of their death and destruction. 15 days is a long time when you are trying to hide from a maniacally angry husband or wife or other thug. -John "Windy" W.
