[Video, Subtitled, Unedited, HD] Dateline April 5, 2013, Salem Oregon: On a dreary April Day yesterday, a few Oregonians showed up to defend the Constitution against yet another assault on the words “Shall not be infringed.” One of them was Oregonian, Navy Veteran and Small Business Owner Jason Schmidt. Schmidt sat fearlessly in front of the Senate Committee headed by the Gun Grabber in Chief Floyd Prozanski.
Here’s the conclusion of Schmidt’s testimony where he tears apart anti-gun statistics, and makes a powerful final statement, regarding the “Hate” of gun control. The testimony is given in it’s entirely with subtitles in High Definition.
“…Oh, and like Steve Jobs used to say, just one more thing…
That claim about 40% of gun sales lack background checks is a lie. It’s a 20 year old survey that targeted the years 1993 and 1994. If you remember, 1994 was the year the Brady Act requirements for background checks went into effect. This survey only sampled 251 people, with a response rate of 50% which is 125 people. Out of that response, 35.7% of them said they acquired a gun without a background check. Somehow 35.7% can be rounded up to 40%. Once they added in the account that some of these guns were from family inheritance, that percentage dropped to 26.4%, which equates to just 33 people out of 251.
How can 33 people surveyed 20 years ago be used as a national statistic? If not to only further a gun control agenda fueled by ignorance and hate.
Vote no on Senate Bills 347, 699, 700, 796.”

One more thing: Per the FBI, the NICS background check system didn’t start until November 30, 1998, four years after the study.
