can have free access to firearms or ammunition. This has gone basically

"constructive possession," enabling them to arrest everyone in a house

MENTAL CASE AGAINST GUNS 3-
Autism Next To Ban Gun Rights?
The lamestream media
told you: The lamestream media told you:
YORK (AP) -- "The government's estimate of autism has moved up again to 1
in 68 U.S. children, a 30 percent increase in two years. But health
officials say the new number may not mean autism is more common. Much of
the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift, with
doctors diagnosing autism more frequently, especially in children with
"The cause of autism is still not known. Without
any blood test or other medical tests for autism, diagnosis is not an exact
science. It's identified by making judgments about a child's
behavior (emphasis added).
"The new CDC report focused on
8-year-olds because most autism is diagnosed by that age. The researchers
checked health and school records to see which children met the criteria
for autism, even if they hadn't been formally diagnosed. Then, the
researchers calculated how common autism was in each place and
"The CDC started using this method in 2007 when it came
up with an estimate of 1 in 150 children. Two years later, it went to 1 in
110. In 2012, it went to 1 in 88. Experts aren't surprised by the
growing numbers, and some say all it reflects is that doctors, teachers
and parents are increasingly likely to say a child with learning and
behavior problems is autistic." (!)
"'We cannot say what portion
is from better diagnosis and improved understanding versus if there's a
real change,' said Coleen Boyle, the CDC official overseeing research into
children's developmental disabilities." [Note: Her "improved understanding"
includes no known cause, no test for occurrence, and known racial and
sexual bias in diagnosis.]
"For decades, autism meant kids with
severe language, intellectual and social impairments and unusual,
repetitious behaviors. But the definition has gradually expanded and now
includes milder, related conditions."
Ombudsman notes however that: The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however
As the Obama administration forges ahead with plans to
ban the right to keep and bear arms based on poorly defined, fuzzy-logic
mental-health "measurements" and "findings," the CDC has announced
radically growing numbers of children now diagnosed with a potentially
disabling condition. The "officials" admit they do not understand, cannot
measure, lack a diagnostic test for, and cannot cure the condition, and
they actually admit is growing because they simply declare more people to
Criteria for measuring the condition whose definition
keeps changing, which is diagnosed based on judgment calls by doctors, have
been relaxed from severe abnormalities to mild childhood behaviors,
according to "scientific" reports just released.
According to the
AP report: "In the latest study, almost half of autistic kids had average
or above average IQs. That's up from a third a decade ago and can be taken
as an indication that the autism label is more commonly given to
higher-functioning children, CDC officials acknowledged."
and sexist prejudices have been acknowledged by the experts as well, and
drive this field of "medicine," as noted in their report: "Autism and
related disorders continue to be diagnosed far more often in boys than
girls, and in whites than blacks or Hispanics. The racial and ethnic
differences probably reflects white communities' greater focus on looking
for autism and white parents' access to doctors, because there's no
biological reason to believe whites get autism more than other people, CDC
officials said at a press briefing Thursday."
With the practice of
medicine proceeding this far from anything remotely scientific, and when
even supposedly pro-gun-rights groups are pressing hard for
mental-health bans on the right to keep and bear arms, serious
gun-rights advocates are predictably worried.
"The idea that
so-called experts constantly evolve this condition, change their standards,
use judgment to declare a person guilty of the disease that has no known
cause, and that the end result could be denial of your fundamental rights
-- who wouldn't be terrified of government-run 'medicine' like that?" said
one observer, who wishes to remain anonymous, for fear of being diagnosed
as paranoid. (See separate story about widespread cultural paranoia setting
in. Are Your Crazy? Denial is a symptom that you are...)
American Academy of Pediatrics, a known anti-gun-rights advocacy group,
issued a statement, saying the nation needs to step up screening for the
condition and research into autism's causes. Experts say a diagnosis can
now be made at age two or even earlier, though the CDC report says most
kids are identified by age four. The AP report points out that: Autism
support groups and advocates stand to benefit from increased diagnoses, as
more patients equals more funding.
"All vets are mentally ill in some
way and government should prevent them from owning firearms." Widely
web-circulated and attributed to Calif. Senate democrat Dianne Feinstein,
she never said this in so many words.
Her actual statement
however, in the Senate Judiciary Committee (3/7/13) implied as much, and
she called for careful scrutiny of veterans and their ability to keep and
bear arms. She has not yet suggested the same for all gun owners or the
public at large, for reasons that were unknown at press
Speaking about access to so-called "assault weapons," a
boogey man she has been fighting for decades, and soldiers who have PTSD or
might develop it and cannot all be identified, she said we must, "find a
way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally
don't have access to this kind of weapon." http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/feinstein.asp
in still other news, Gun Owners of America has already reported that
somewhere between 150,000 and 200,000 veterans have been added to the NICS
Index, the federal list that voids the Second Amendment for anyone on
vets, men and women, were diagnosed, or treated, or committed, or were
given drugs for PTSD. Exact details and numbers have been withheld by the
government. The massive rights-denial scheme involved no trials, no
representation, no appeals, and no luck, just a flat-out ban on the right
to keep and bear arms, for former soldiers, for "mental" reasons. Normally,
the VA appoints guardians and declares that the vets are unable to handle
their own affairs. This then fulfills their twisted definition of
prohibiting individuals who’ve been “adjudicated as a mental
defective,” according to GOA.
I asked if these tens of
thousands of people whose rights have been stripped away get notice. "After
the Veterans Disarmament Act, perfunctory notice is required, but we would
be surprised if any veterans got a hearing before the appointment of a
guardian. Rather, veterans have a very short time-frame to hire a
lawyer and psychiatrist -- and contest the appointment at their own expense
(normally, it’s around $10,000 or more)."
To be clear:
Everyone in the pro-gun-rights movement supports keeping guns out of the
hands of truly crazy people. How you define and exclusively identify such
people, what rights they retain and can have restored, and how to protect
the innocent are legitimate concerns that many experts say are not
receiving significant attention. That's putting it too nicely. These rights
are about to be trampled.
How to prevent government (and others)
from using crazy people as an excuse in the evident ongoing effort to
shrink or eradicate the right of the people to keep and bear arms, is a
legitimate concern and a high priority.
Operatives working within
government to fabricate so-called "mental health" as a means toward
infringing upon rights or disarming the public, even incrementally, should
be brought up on charges and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Rosemond concerns whether a prison sentence should be
increased because someone during the commission of a drug sale (one pound
of pot) fired a gun. Legally speaking, it's about aiding and abetting a
crime, and the difference between taking actions, wanting to (known as
mens rea, a guilty mind), and foreknowledge of events.

many facts never established. Having, brandishing or
firing a gun during certain drug crimes increases the sentence (5, 7
and 10 years). It was never determined who exactly fired the gun, but the
government sought the added charge and jail time because a gun was

for the "criminal justice" system and all the people who earn their livings
there -- cops, special agents, bail bondsmen, law clerks, lawyers, court
staffs, jailers, judges, stenographers, reporters, it's a long list. (They
really do have a reverse incentive against seeing this sort of crime
disappear, it would cost them their jobs.)
What's important to
recognize in this case is that the government argued, in essence, that
anyone involved in a crime is guilty of all aspects of the crime, no matter
who committed them or what you thought. This is extremely dangerous for the
public, because it means if you have even remote connection to some illegal
act, the government's inclination is to presume you are guilty of the worst
part of whatever took place.
That may have some value in dealing
with gangs who, as the government pointed out, often act in concert to
achieve some criminal end. But it is a terrible precedent for the innocent.
Any wrong-minded youth (or adult) who gets mixed up (or suckered into)
something, would end up as guilty as the people who are really bad actors,
if the authorities have their way. The potential for abuse is too great to
allow on those grounds alone. Like RICO forfeiture, they could condemn
everything in sight, lock everything up, just for the bad acts of a lone

these cases, nor do we here, with defendants who incidentally facilitate a

case is the owner of a gun store who sells a firearm to a criminal, knowing
but not caring how the gun will be used. We express no view about what sort
of facts, if any, would suffice to show that such a third party has the
intent necessary to be convicted of aiding and abetting." (But they thought
enough about it to write that disclaimer. Hmmm.)

Savvy instructors will start promoting training instead of waiting for
expired-license students to show up. Some instructors think this means
the end of their business, and for some that may be true. For others,
business will increase, as training becomes demand driven instead
of government mandated. In Arizona, this demographic and market shift
led to new ranges and new training companies opening, catering to
newcomers, plus advanced tactical and refresher classes. The ease of
renewals led to more original signups.

"I've heard you
on Armed American Radio many times -- always enjoy your commentary and
insight, and wanted to sign up to read your Page Nine reports regularly."
[I only wish I could get them out more frequently -- I have a large backlog
of important stories and news, but a hundred other things competing for my
time. You have no idea how long it takes me to get one of these ready.
"I just recently started listening to Armed American
Radio, and I heard you as a guest there this past week. That's what
prompted me to go to your website and sign up."
"I read your column
in American Handgunner magazine and wanted more."
"I was listening to
the latest podcast of Armed American Radio that you were a guest on and I
was interested in what you had to say about what is going on with our 2nd
Amendment rights. I am always looking to stay informed on what is going on
and found your web site and blog a good source of info."

heard about you and your work from the Armed American Radio broadcast from
last week. Thank you for all you do!"

Armed American Radio. I love your stuff. You're so much fun to listen
to. Keep up the good work."
"I listen to Armed American Radio !!!
Love the show and all that you guys do, decided it was about time I

member of the USCCA and believer that if every American was a responsibly
armed citizen our great nation would be a better place. Keep up the good
"I heard about, and heard you on Armed American Radio with
Mark. I recently obtained my CCW here in Ohio and want to learn as much as
I can about my rights, my freedoms, and the stupidity of my government
trying to take those away. Hope that helps."
"Thank you for what you
are doing. And THANKS for helping keep gun owners safe. I live in SE
Alabama, so not much worry here. Too many of us ole farm boys. But it
could change over night."
"Your site is extremely helpful for what
I'm doing and making it easier to develop communications pieces for the
various groups I will be engaging - friend and foe alike. In a word, your
site is helpful."
"Heard you on the radio last evening speaking about
gun laws and what not. Very interesting. I like what you were
saying and like to keep informed by somebody other than the normal
media. Generally don't listen to radio much late at night but I had
to make late evening trip to my veterinarian and found you on a station I
think out of Iowa. I live in Wyoming. Haven't had much time to look
at the site or read much yet but what I did see, I really think is

listening to the "Alan Korwin Experience" whenever you're on. I was

best sources of education out there. Keep up the great
