"Dr. Miguel Faria's journey into politics and the public health and gun control movements began when, as editor of the Journal of the Medical Association of Georgia, he studied the problem of gun violence and discovered the gun research conducted by the medical establishment was not scientific research as claimed, but politicized, result-oriented propaganda designed to bolster the preordained conclusion that guns should be eradicated from the general population. Faria and three other experts testified before a congressional subcommittee, exposing the pseudoscience of the gun research conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDe and proposing the elimination of funds for such research. Congress agreed and passed the Dickey Amendment, restricting CDC gun research that advocates for gun control. Faria relates his adventures during his stint "within the belly" of the public health establishmentƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚"ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚€ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚" that is, his appointment by President George W. Bush as a member of a grant review committee at the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPe of the CDC, the very institution he had criticized for nearly a decade! He criticizes some of the methodology used by the NCIPC and militates for a more rigorous scientific process for approval of grants in the area of injury prevention. He exposes specific flaws in several gun violence studies that attempted to link lawful gun ownership to violent crime. He argues that gun violence is not merely a consequence of "easy gun availability," but due to the cycle of government dependency, broken families, the failure of public education, and the cultural disintegration that has been taking place for decades, particularly in the poorer southern states, and for which the federal government welfare policies have been largely responsible. America, Guns, and Freedom outlines why the Second Amendment and armed self-defense are still needed in modern society, debunks the arguments that the U.S. should follow the path of European social democracies by enforcing draconian gun control, and expounds on how civilian disarmament in Australia and Great Britain, despite media hype, has not decreased violent crime in those countries. In America, Guns, and Freedom, the author warns us of the five essential ingredients required for the creation and sustenance of tyrannical governments, one of which has been civilian disarmament via gun registration followed by gun bans and confiscation. Faria discusses mass shooting incidents and the role of mental illness. Special attention is given to the problem of how media sensationalism may encourage deranged individuals and madmen to become mass shooters seeking celebrity status, even in death. While gun control advocates decry America's "gun culture," Faria informs us of the significant role that this "gun culture" played in saving England during World War II. American traditions have been and remain beacons of liberty, and this is most evident in America, Guns, and Freedom. Totalitarian governments that deny their citizens the right to keep and bear arms are a threat to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness."

From one of America’s smartest political writers comes a “captivating and comprehensive journey” (#1 New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh) of the United States’ unique and enduring relationship with guns. For America, the gun is a story of innovation, power, violence, character, and freedom. From the founding of the nation to the pioneering of the West, from the freeing of the slaves to the urbanization of the twentieth century, our country has had a complex and lasting relationship with firearms. In First Freedom, nationally syndicated columnist and veteran writer David Harsanyi explores the ways in which firearms have helped preserve our religious, economic, and cultural institutions for over two centuries. From Samuel Colt’s early entrepreneurism to the successful firearms technology that helped make the United States a superpower, the gun is inextricably tied to our exceptional rise. In the vein of popular histories like American Gun, Salt, and Seabiscuit, Harsanyi takes us on a captivating and thrilling ride of Second Amendment history that demonstrates why guns are not only an integral part of America’s past, but also an essential part of its future. First Freedom is “a briskly paced journey…a welcome lesson on how guns and America have shaped each other for four hundred years” (National Review).

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2019 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Linguistik, Note: 1,7, Universität Augsburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This paper argues that the NRA uses conceptual metaphors to frame advocacy for gun rights and the possession of guns in a positive way. Based on the methodologies of Semino et al. and Kapranov, a corpus of 261 texts by the NRA will be searched through using LancsBox to find keywords by contrasting the NRA corpus with the Brown Corpus of written texts in American English. Then, these keywords will be investigated with the Whelk-Tool of LancsBox to detect metaphors in the surrounding text which will be compared with the list of conceptual metaphors and frames from MetaNet. The subject of gun rights and the legislation of private gun possession has been one of the major topics in politics of the United States of America for many decades. The preservation of the Second Amendment and especially the 'Right to Keep and Bear Arms' is a ubiquitous matter in debates between the political parties and organizations, and groups which fight for or against stricter regulations of gun rights. One of the main participants is the National Rifle Association (NRA). This association, whose primary goal once was the promotion of science-based rifle shooting to improve the strength of the American troops when it was founded in 1871, has become the biggest lobby group in favor of loose regulation on gun rights to preserve the Second Amendment. This ideology, of course, is conveyed through language and (cognitive) linguistic devices such as frames and metaphorical expressions. Recent studies have discussed the framing within the climate discourse, the use of metaphors for cancer discourse, a text-linguistic approach to the language of the NRA as being religious and the use of metaphors in the gun debate. The foundation of these studies is the notion of frames by Minsky, Fillmore, Tannen and Wallat, as has been collected by Bednarek in a previous work on frames and the conceptual metaphor theory (CMT). CMT is based on the finding "that metaphors are essentially bundles of mappings across frames that occur within domains". Therefore, frames and metaphors are closely connected. This leads to the possibility to search for metaphors – and thus arrive at their relating conceptual metaphor – in texts with the aim of deciphering the frames which are evoked.

America And Its Guns written by James E. Atwood and has been published by Wipf and Stock Publishers this book supported file pdf, txt, epub, kindle and other format this book has been release on 2012-06-01 with Religion categories.


James Atwood contends that the thirty thousand gun deaths America suffers every year cannot be understood apart from our national myth that God has appointed America as "the trustee of the civilization of the world" and even "Christ's light to the nations." Because these purposes are noble, and we are supposedly a good and trustworthy people, violence is sometimes "required" and gives license to individuals to carry open or concealed weapons, which "save lives" and can even be "redemptive." Atwood, an avid hunter, cautions that an absolute trust in guns and violence morphs easily into idolatry. Having spent thirty-six years as a Presbyterian pastor fighting against the easy access to firearms, one of which took the life of a friend, he uses his unique experience and his biblical and theological understanding to graphically portray the impact guns have on our society. He documents how Americans have been deceived into believing that the tools of violence, whether they take the form of advanced military technology or a handgun in the bedside stand, will provide security. He closes with a wake-up call to the faith community, which he says is America's best hope to unmask the extremism of the Gun Empire.

Frequenting gun shops and shooting ranges, and devoting particular attention to those whose interest in weaponry extends beyond the casual, Abigail A. Kohn captures in finegrained and often entertaining, yet always humane, detail how gun owners actually think and feel about their guns. Through her conversations--with cowboy action shooters at a regional match, sport shooters, hunters, with shooters of all ages and races--we hear of the "savage beauty" of a beautifully crafted long gun, of the powerful historical import owners attach to their guns, of the sense of empowerment that comes with shooting skill, and the visceral thrill of discharging a dangerous weapon. Cutting through the cliches that link gun ownership with violent, criminal subcultures and portray shooters as "gun nuts" or potential terrorists, Kohn provides us with a lively and untainted portrait of American gun enthusiasts.

On September 11, 2001, America was defiled by terror -- our people mass murdered by fanatics willing to forfeit their own lives to kill as many innocent civilians as they could. The horrific evil inflicted on America that day was also a frontal assault on the very values that have made this nation a power-house: liberty, democracy, justice, and decency. To the nation's gun ban lobby, however, the mindless tragedy was seen as an opportunity to seize on terrorism as an excuse to launch a new wave of harsh gun laws against peaceable citizens. But their antidefense dogma fell on deaf ears. Citizens quickly decided to assume responsibility for their own protection. Homeland security meant exercising Second Amendment rights; it meant common-sense gun ownership. It meant Americans fighting back -- from airline pilots to average citizens. Guns, Freedom, and Terrorism exposes the myths of those who demand we give up the liberties our forefathers fought valiantly to protect. It's about the true meaning of an armed citizenry and the nation's bedrock belief in preserving freedom. This fact-filled book provides forceful and convincing arguments on all the current issues facing firearms ownership in America, including: arming airline pilots, "animal rights" extremists, extortion of firearms manufacturers, gun show prohibition, international disarmament, self-defense and right-to-carry laws, media bias, and the historical and legal foundations affirming an individual's right to keep and bear arms.
