Bryan Miller - Phila. Inquirer September 11, 2006

I just read Bryan Miller's latest gun hysteria, re: "Gun law is about thugs, not suburban moms" (letters, Aug. 15th), and would like to clear up a few inaccuracies. Mr. Miller is committed to reducing the flow of illegal weapons pouring into Camden from Philadelphia. The rules of simple economics will reveal that the black market increases in direct correlation to increases in gun control. The gun-ban crowd has, in effect, created the black market that puts guns in the hands of criminals (and not "weak laws that encourage illegal trafficing" as Mr. Miller suggests).
We can all sympathize with Mr. Miller who tragically lost his brother Michael on Nov. 22, 1994 to a deranged street thug named Bennie Lawson. Special Agent Miller was killed in the line of duty by Mr. Lawson who was "settling" a gang-related "issue". Agent Miller was truly in the wrong place at the wrong time, but attacking the law-abiding gun owner will never settle Bryan Miller's "score".
The gun control that Bryan Miller has devoted his life to only disarms the law-abiding thereby giving criminals greater predatory confidence. This only makes the job of law enforcement that much more difficult. Criminal laws against murder, rape, robbery and all other violent crimes are laws that already impose appropriate restrictions on the use of any weapon. In fact, 10 out of 10 criminals favor gun control.
In my county, 40% of the adults have their concealed carry permit - a natural right of all citizens that's unavailable in New Jersey. One might even say that a state that deprives its law-abiding citizens with the means of self defense is itself a barbaric accomplice to violent crime. It's as if New Jersey politicians, with the help of laser focused elitists like Bryan Miller who seem to know what's best for everyone else, distrusts citizens more than they fear rapists and murderers.
Gun owners are among the most disciplined, responsible, safety conscious and courteous people that you could ever want to know. They are the single most law-abiding segment of our society and no one detests violence and cherishes life more than those wishing to take personal responsibility for their own safety. If Mr. Miller truly wishes to make New Jersey safer then he'll let brave law inforcement officers like his late brother do their job and stop trying to impose his superior wisdom and virtue on others.

For a list of similiar problems there is a new movie "AMERICA from Freedom to Fascism" produced by Aaron Russo which covers some of the reasons for the current problems.

Did you hear about it yet? If so, what did you think?

If not, you can get some info from the 'net.

Keep it up.
