Pelosi Claims Background Checks Would’ve Stopped Vegas Shooter

If you need any further proof that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has absolutely no clue what is happening beyond her leftist mandated talking points, look no further than her most recent town hall – where she erroneously claimed that background checks could have stopped Stephen Paddock from carrying out his mass-murdering spree in Las Vegas.

A retired Marine Captain and a gun store owner confronted Pelosi during the town hall, asking her precisely what gun control measure could be implemented that would stop a man like Paddock from carrying out his attack, if he had such a strong motivation to commit mass killing.

Rather than just outright call for a blanket gun ban, which would be electoral suicide for a mainstream politician, Pelosi daftly stated that background checks were the best option.

“We have come together in a bi-partisan way to put together what we thought would save the most lives,” she said. “And that is to have background checks, gun violence prevention background checks, and to have them be effective. Overwhelmingly, members of the National Rifle Association support background checks.”

    Obama Study Concluded Firearms Used for Self-Defense
    ‘Important Crime Deterrent’

    By Craig Bannister
    | October 6, 2017 | 2:55 PM EDT

    Obama executive order mandated gun

    “Self-defense can be an important
    crime deterrent,” concluded a study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
    mandated via executive order by President Barack Obama. The findings also
    question the effectiveness of gun-control measures.

    The $10 million study was
    commissioned by President Barack Obama as part of 23 executive orders he signed
    in January of 2013.

    The study’s findings include:

    Gun-use is the safest of studied “self-protective

    Suicide accounts for most firearm deaths,

    Felons who use guns very seldom obtain their guns by
    stealing them, and

    There is no evidence that gun restrictions reduce gun

    “Studies that directly assessed the
    effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was
    ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an
    offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime
    victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies,” the
    CDC study, entitled “Priorities For Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related
    Violence,” states.

    Researchers also found that the
    majority of firearm deaths are from suicide, not homicide. “Between the years
    2000 and 2010, firearm-related suicides significantly outnumbered homicides for
    all age groups, annually accounting for 61 percent of the more than 335,600
    people who died from firearm-related violence in the United States.”

    “Most felons report obtaining the
    majority of their firearms from informal sources,” adds the report, while
    “stolen guns account for only a small percentage of guns used by convicted

    The report expresses uncertainty
    about gun control measures, stating that “whether gun restrictions reduce
    firearm-related violence is an unresolved issue,” and that there is no evidence
    “that passage of right-to-carry laws decrease or increase violence crime.” It
    also stated that proposed “gun turn-in programs are ineffective.”

    Instead, researchers proposed gun
    safety technologies such as “external locking devices and biometric systems” to
    reduce firearm-related deaths.

    United States v. Miller


    On May 15, 1939 the Supreme Court,
    in an opinion by Justice McReynolds, held: The National Firearms Act, as applied to one
    indicted for transporting in interstate commerce a 12-gauge shotgun with a
    barrel less than 18 inches long without having registered it and without having
    in his possession a stamp-affixed written order for it, as required by the Act,

    Not unconstitutional as an invasion of the reserved
    powers of the States. Citing Sonzinsky v. United States, 300 U. S. 506,[1]
    and Narcotic Act cases. P. 307 U. S. 177.

    Not violative of the Second Amendment of the Federal
    Constitution. P. 307 U. S. 178.

    The Court cannot take judicial
    notice that a shotgun having a barrel less than 18 inches long has today any
    reasonable relation to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated
    militia, and therefore cannot say that the Second Amendment guarantees to the
    citizen the right to keep and bear such a weapon.

    In the absence of any evidence
    tending to show that possession or use of a “shotgun having a barrel of
    less than eighteen inches in length” at this time has some reasonable
    relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia, we
    cannot say that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear such
    an instrument.

    “Certainly it is not within judicial
    notice that this weapon is any part of the ordinary military equipment, or that
    its use could contribute to the common defense.”


    That means that the 2nd
    Amendment is to protect the right of the people to keep and
    bear arms, of a MILITARY type of equipment!!!

    That means AR-15 and other like
    it!! It also protects the right to have
    large capacity magazines and the ammo etc.!!

  • Wayne Buck

    Pelosi or any other half-wit out there, who thinks a background check is going to stop some nut case,from shooting.Well, i’d suggest you go have your damn head examined.When some IDIOT decides to do something STUPID,there’s no amount of background checks going to have any positive outcome.It comes down to– ‘Put your brain in gear,before putting your mouth in motion’.

  • Ron C

    And no doubt Pelosi’s useful idiot’s will swallow everything she says…and that would be without an once of thought….so sad that so many people have given up their very freedom of thought and deduction….

  • Coonass

    That Bitch needs another shot of what she’s been drinking.

  • ronniecanoli

    She is BAT-SHITZ CRAZY..

  • A. Jay

    More mindless drivel from this clueless moron. Somehow it seems you may be the best thing to come out of Kookafornia, please stay in power forever!!

  • Don Baker

    Pelosi is deluded and a liar. She has tossed fat lucrative government contracts to her husband to enrich herself. Like Hillary, she is also a crook

  • Michael Bush

    That shooter already passed background checks. Pelosi is either out of touch with reality or lying AGAIN.

  • Anton

    I listen to all the late night talk show hosts who were all very critical about America and our gun rights, especially the guy from England.
    What I did not hear out of any of them was a solution, it is so easy to stand up there and complain and criticize about guns. Tell us all, tell America how you would have stopped this maniac from killing so many people, give us the answers don’t just stand there bitchin about it.

  • Anton

    What really gets me about these politicians Pelosi is that they are quick to judge before all the information is in about the shooting, while there were bump stocks in the room it has not been reported that the shooter even used one, odds are he probably did but if he did that information has not been verified by law enforcement yet.
    Another thing is people like Pelosi, Schumer and especially Sen. Diane Fienstien are even quicker to bash the republican controlled House and Senate about gun control.
    Let’s go back to 2008 to 2010 right after Obama won the election, the democrats had total and complete control of all three houses, they even had a rare super majority in the Senate meaning they had a filibuster proof Senate, this is how the democrats passed the dreaded health care bill without one single republican vote. Where was Sen. Fienstien or any other democrat with any form of anti-gun legislation?
    Back in the 1990’s Fienstien passed her “assault weapon” ban, why in the world did she not pass any kind of gun legislation when her party had enough seats and power to pass anything they wanted without any GOP opposition? Sen. Fienstien waited until the democrats lost the House then she brought up legislation because she knew the republicans would never pass it, I believe the only reason she did not introduce any legislation when her party had compete control was she did not want to put her democratic colleagues that are NRA members on the spot in a mid term election.

    So if I were to use Pelosi left wing liberal rationalization I guess I could blame Pelosi, Reid, Obama and especially Fienstien for Orlando, sandy hook, San Bernardino and now Vegas, that’s how they would spin it, the blood from all those shootings are on their hands for not acting when they had a chance.
    Of course the media will never report this or even mention that the democrats had a chance to pass some kind of gun legislation during the 2 years they had total control, they passed the horrible health care act, why not some kind of gun legislation?
    Maybe Obama’s “fast and furious” was too important.

  • Arizona Wolf
