What is Charles Rangel? A political activist (boarderline if not a radical) who has always used over the top exaggerations to try and get what he wants. The right are just as guilty with their hate of all Muslims over the actions of a minority of a minority of radical islamics.

Personally I have no concern for him and change the channel when or perice Morgan speak at all and I change the channel to another when msnbc begins to talk about gun control. It is called turning those who have proven themselves radicals on issues out.

Anyone not discussing how to fix a society which is self destructing is not really concerned about violence and thus need to shut up and let the adults talk about how to get society back on track to becoming better than yesterday, how to reduce the pressures of life and become more civilized.

Christopher Koper, a gun violence expert who teaches criminology at George Mason University, told us “there isn’t a good estimate as to the number of people killed each year by assault weapons.” He said the national databases used to track murders “don’t have detailed information on the particular gun models that are used in homicides.”

Koper coauthored a 2004 study, “An Updated Assessment of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban: Impacts on Gun Markets and Gun Violence, 1994-2003.” It was the final of three studies of the ban, which was enacted in 1994 as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 and expired in 2004.

In that report, Koper wrote that assault weapons (AWs) and large-capacity magazines (LCMs) “were used in only a minority of gun crimes prior to the 1994 federal ban, and AWs were used in a particularly small percentage of gun crimes.”

Koper, 2004: The most common AWs prohibited by the 1994 federal ban accounted for between 1 percent and 6 percent of guns used in crime according to most of several national and local data sources examined for this and our prior study.

The study includes a chart that shows, for example, that only 2 percent of all the guns recovered by Baltimore police in 1992 and 1993 were assault weapons.

Koper said he’s unaware of any systematic data and analysis since then on the use of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines in crimes nationwide.

We have no intention of minimizing the impact of gun violence on America’s youth. Having said that, though, Rangel adds little to the overheated debate on gun control by grossly inflating the number of children who are killed and injured by assault weapons.

Keep the lies coming!! It only helps knock down this BS control bill.

Rangel’s Assault Weapons Whopper Posted on March 22, 2013

Rep. Charlie Rangel falsely claimed there are “millions of kids dying, being shot down by assault weapons.” In fact, fewer than 100,000 persons younger than 20 years old died of gun violence, including suicide, over a 30-year period through 2010, government data show. About two-thirds of those deaths — or nearly 65,000 — were homicides.

That’s for all guns, not just assault weapons. We don’t know how many of them were killed by assault weapons, but federally funded studies have shown that such weapons are used in a small percentage of crimes.

Rangel, a New York Democrat, discussed the prospect of the proposed assault weapons ban on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.” The host, Chris Jansing, asked Rangel why the Senate bill, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, did not have the support it needed for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to post the bill for a vote. Rangel blamed politics and money, particularly the lobbying of the National Rifle Association. He called it a “moral issue.”

Rangel, March 21: We’re talking about millions of kids dying, being shot down by assault weapons. We’re talking about handguns where it’s easier in the inner cities to get these guns and to get computers. This is not just a political issue. It’s a moral issue.

Millions? That’s simply not supported by the facts.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control database shows that over a 30-year period — from 1981 to 2010 — there were about 939,782 violence-related firearm deaths. That includes all ages, not just children, and all types of violence-related deaths, including suicides and legal interventions, such as justifiable deaths caused by police action. (The CDC provides its data over two time periods: 1981 to 1998 and 1999 to 2010.)

Of those nearly 1 million firearm deaths, 99,622 — or about 11 percent — involved those 19 years old or younger. About two thirds of those — or nearly 64,899 — were homicides. That’s an average of not quite 2,200 a year.

We also looked at violence-related nonfatal gunshot injuries. CDC data show that over an 11-year period, from 2001 to 2011, there were 130,697 people younger than 20 who had such injuries. That includes all guns and all nonfatal gunshot injuries, including those that were self-inflicted. Of those, there were 126,470 firearm assault injuries or nearly 11,500 a year.

So, the number of kids who were injured or killed by gun violence is in the thousands, not in the millions. And that’s by all guns, not just assault weapons.

Mark:

Socialism had nothing to do with Kodak's failure. They simply weren't able to sell their products at a price that could keep them afloat.

Or how about just making bad decisions?

"Kodak thought this was a wise investment for two reasons: drugs had high margins and Kodak made chemicals. Unfortunately, those two facts were not sufficient to make this deal pay off for Kodak shareholders."

Time for you to update your lines to present about socialism killing companies. Kodak failed to adapt to and take advantage of technology which they passed over when they saw it as nothing but a fad. Now they have faded away like so many other companies which made the same mistake.

Where's Kodak? The film industry in general is dying. Fewer and fewer people use film cameras... The entire film market is a dying market. They couldn't advance with the times beyond film... They died.

Robert: I am again going to give you an example of just how lost and stupid you are. There once was a fortune 500 company. Eastman Kodak. There was most likely not a house in America that did not have something made by Kodak. There once was a very vibrant city that Kodak was home to. Rochester NY. Then there was Saul D. Alinsky. Rochester had a small area of it that did have poor people in it. Just like any big city does. Alinsky targeted Kodak and it's wealth. Alinsky went on a rampage against Kodak. Why should Kodak be so rich and any part of Rochester be poor! Kodak put massive amounts of it's wealth toward research and development in order to stay at the top. Alinsky kept up the political pressure by launching a massive socialist propaganda machine against Kodak. Kodak caved in and put money into cleaning up Rochester with social warfare programs. The business culture of Kodak was changed from staying on top to helping the poor. I ask you now Robert these very simple questions: Where is Kodak now? What is the state of Rochester NY now? Every thing you demand, happed with this example.

lol fuck a union. Say what you want but making enough almost every year to hit the SS limit the last two months of the year was well worth it.Now as I get older I can enjoy life. my body did not get broke up by hard work either.But now the work I do is using my brain and a lil bit of hand work.So you can be lazy in your 20's and 30's and still be fighting for scraps when your my age just trying to survive.

"No I worked hard in my early days like I keep telling you, It has allowed me to relax as I got older and enjoy my life.I am far from rich but I have enough to live a nice lifestyle."

No, you devalued yourself by working for whatever scraps you were handed, by not standing with any union that existed (or would if you stood with your fellow workers in forming one) and being willing to unit with your fellow workers.

No only did you devalue your own work, but you devalued the work of others and thus made yourself work harder and that is not called working hard, it is called working stupidly.
