The U.S. Department of Justice just released a study of gun violence statistics and the results blow holes through the anti-gun crowd's most cherished story lines.

Based on the findings, two basic truths stand out: 1) more guns correspond with less crime, and 2) the much maligned "gun show loophole" is a boogeyman. First, the study reveals just the opposite of the standard gun control line: an increase in the prevalence of firearms has corresponded with a decrease in gun violence. Or as John Lott has famously put it: more guns, less crime. The Justice Dept. data reveal this to be true for both gun-related homicide and non-fatal gun violence. Over the period 1993-2011, firearm-related homicides dropped a whopping 39 percent, while nonfatal firearm crimes dived by 69 percent. That's a dramatic decline.

We expect leftists, liberals, and other miscreants to pounce opportunistically, to lie, cheat, and twist (all the while drooling) over a phrase like "legitimate rape" when uttered by a strong conservative Christian politician.

But should we expect the same from alleged conservatives? Yet this is exactly what we've seen from several prominent conservatives in the wake of a media gaffe from U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin (R-MO) in regard to alleged "legitimate rape" and abortion. What could have been quickly and easily handled with a consolidated response correctly interpreting Akin's unfortunate phrase was instead a rare cause of bipartisan hazing.

At the federal level, the functions of the executive branch pertain to both domestic and foreign policy.

I have already explained how I think government in general should be greatly decentralized stateside with a focus on County rights first, then States, then a very limited federal instrument-in other words, true federalism. For this reason, we need not really discuss how we were once free in these regards, for we have already largely described it in so many ways. We have also already covered most of the fall into tyranny in this regard-particularly with welfare, taxation, and the military-so we will reserve comments in this regard to the two most dangerous stateside issues: the abuses of executive orders and administrative law. These will appear in the next section.

The National Rifle Association just released a new video which charges that President Obmama's true motives in regards to gun control revolve around mandatory gun-buy-backs and references this document published by the National Institute of Justice dated January 4, 2013. Even Obama's experts say his gun control policies won't work. According to an internal Department of Justice memorandum, a gun ban, like the one being debated right now in Congress, will not work without a mandatory gun buyback, and "universal" background checks will not work without requiring gun registration. Call Congress at 202-224-3121 and tell them to reject President Obama's gun control agenda...

Rubio still teaches a class at Florida International University, and one recent morning he was telling his students-almost all Hispanic immigrants or children of immigrants-how politics really works.

His topic was the Florida House of Representatives, and he didn't need notes to explain why the legislative body he once led is so partisan and polarized. "If you know the only way to lose your seat is to get out-conservatived in a primary, you'll never let anyone get to your right," Rubio said. He's clearly a political animal. "I'm not telling you this is how it should be," he said with a grin. "But it's how it is. This isn't a good-government class. This is a politics class." Rubio's detractors, and even some admirers, suggest that his career so far has been less about good government than politics and self-promotion. His autobiography recounts virtually no substantive achievements beyond a hometown tree-planting project. In the class, he devoted much of his time to recounting the machinations that persuaded his colleagues to elect him speaker: "You raise money for them. You befriend them. You make sure your kids are friends with their kids. And then you cut the best deal you can."

Yesterday, the New York Times reported that the "biggest donors in the Republican Party" have joined forces with Karl Rove and Steven J. Law, president of American Crossroads, to create the Conservative Victory Project.

The Times reports that this new group will dedicate itself to "recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts who Republican leaders worry could complicate the party's effort to win control of the Senate." But it is American Crossroads and its ilk that have run the GOP into the ground. Spending millions of dollars on useless 30,000-ft. advertising campaigns during the last election cycle, training candidates to soften conservatism in order to appeal to "moderates," blowing up the federal budget under George W. Bush as a bipartisan tactic - all of those strategies led the party to a disastrous defeat in 2012. The Tea Party, which may nominate losers from time to time, also brought the Republicans their historic 2010 Congressional victory...

January 1, 2013 relates Congressional Budget Office figures for the Senate's bill that allegedly spares us from the "fiscal cliff."

Looks to me more like the US will go off the fiscal cliff, only the Senate is giving the Federal government a golden parachute. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the last-minute fiscal cliff deal reached by congressional leaders and President Barack Obama cuts only $15 billion in spending while increasing tax revenues by $620 billion-a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts.

In a column for the Orange County Register, Mark Steyn makes the case in David Gregory could win a spot on "America's dumbest criminals."

The leftist consciously defied DC gun laws (even after checking with the police), and brandished a high capacity magazine in order to argue for the need for more gun laws. Say Dave, what's gonna make criminals obey laws when the finest, law-abiding elites won't obey even in the easy case of making a trivial point? Or maybe the real moral here is that leftists are really just as criminal at heart as what we have come to know as criminals. More to the point, Gregory may be a candidate for American's dumbest leftist, too (and that's sayin' a lot!). As Steyn puts it: "David Gregory intended to demonstrate what he regards as the absurdity of America's lax gun laws. Instead, he's demonstrating the ever-greater absurdity of America's non-lax laws."

We told you last night about the radio ads put out by an anti-Amendment One group, declaring that Tuesday's ballot issue on charter schools was an effort to recreate an educational system that separates black and white students.

Lowery said Obama lost Georgia by 200,000 votes in 2008 while 390,000 black folks in Georgia did not vote. "I don't know what kind of a n-- wouldn't vote with a black man running," said Lowery. "All that he did with the stimulus was genius. Nobody intelligent would risk this country with Romney." . . . Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was. "I'm frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out in this election," said Lowery.

According to a report last month by academics at Stanford and New York universities, between 2,562 and 3,325 people have been killed since the strikes in Pakistan began in 2004.

The report said of those, up to 881 were civilians, including 176 children. Only 41 people who had died had been confirmed as 'high-value' terrorist targets. Getting at the truth is difficult because the tribal regions along the frontier are closed to journalists. US security officials continue to claim that almost all those killed are militants who use bases in Pakistan to launch attacks on Western forces across the border in Afghanistan.
