One of the most common refrains that you hear from anti-2A people is that the U.S. has one of the highest murder rates in the world, and, they say, because the U.S. is so dangerous, of course we should ban guns.
That’s what they keep telling us, but is it true?
The answer, like so many things said by anti-gunners, is that it is true… but only if you twist the statistics.
What do I mean? It comes down to context (or the lack of context). Anti-2A politicians and their lapdogs in the legacy media don’t want you to know the context of their claim about U.S. murder rates. It wouldn’t fit their narrative.
Because, once you know the context, the logical conclusion that you’ll come to about guns is very different from the one that they’re pushing (hat tip to here for the lead). S.D. Wells writes,
Just take a ride through the busiest cities in America and you will see the littered streets of chaos, especially in the Democrat-run cities of Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, St. Louis and New Orleans. Simply remove these 5 cities from the murder statistics of the USA and we’re barely even on the map anymore, and the Democrats want gun control? Come again?
Drive 30 minutes outside of any major city and the crime rate plummets to next-to-zero. The only reason the United States ranks 128th in safest countries of the world, according to the Global Peace Index, is because of a handful of horrifically violent Democrat-run metropolitan cities. Period. The biggest factor in figuring this “safety” gauge is the murder rate.
Wells points out how much of a difference those five biggest cities (run by anti-2A politicians) makes in the statistics in the headline of their article: “USA has 3rd highest murder rate in the world, unless you subtract the five biggest Democrat-run metropolitan cities, and then we’re 189th out of 193.”
In other words, as long as you stay out of anti-2A cities, the U.S. is nearly the safest country in the entire world to live in.
What does that mean to you (other than stay out of those cities)? It’s not an illogical conclusion that the lack of access to legal guns is very likely a reason that those cities have such abysmal murder rates, and maybe, just maybe (okay, almost certainly), if the leftist politicians running those cities would allow people there to exercise their Second Amendment rights, the murder rates in those cities would plummet, too. But that would mean allowing people to be free, and they seem to hate that idea.
But the numbers, in context, don’t lie. Allowing legal gun ownership saves lives.
Unknown year, however one Alabama city , small, passed a law that required every household to have a gun, CW required also. Crime : Murder went from 5 a year to ZERO. Break-ins, armed robbery and assaults went from 15 to 20 a year to ZERO. Switzerland has a law that EVERY male go into the armed services for two years. EVERY HOUSEHOLD has a gun . Crime? ALMOST zero. Murder with any firearm ZERO . Lori the silly ugly Mayor of Chicago, are you reading this? NAW, you can’t read.
It wasn’t Alabama, in was Georgia. Kennesaw, Georgia to be exact. The year was 1982. It was a direct response to a 1981 ban on handguns within the city limits of Morton Grove, Illinois. I have used these two cities many times to explain why guns, not only are necessary, but also to show how having guns doesn’t automatically lead to more gun violence!
I would say we are governed by fools which is true they are fools! But not totally stupid! They want control, period. Give me control I’ll get your money. The only way the Socialists can gain control is to destroy the middle class. Take away they ability to defend their homes then they lose their homes that get burned. Take away the rights to farm (green agenda look at the Danish) then you have to beg them for food. Do these things and the middle class dies out!
The Marxists learned long ago by way of the Fredrick’s Institute the key to destroying the west was to destroy the family unit and this is exactly what we have today with the results in plain sight.
This institute left Germany for the USA when Hitler came to power and wound up at Columbia University in NYC where they still are but under a different name. They use all the methods that pornographers use, but against young children when they are 1+ yo. It includes all forms of perversion, disgusting as it is. Kinsey was another pervert who wound up at Indiana University, and his institute is still there and active. He and his band of Pedos were never prosecuted for the crimes they committed against the children involved and neither was the school, and both receive tax dollars that paid for it all and still receive them. Our leaders do nothing about it, but instead encourage it. The same with all evil, it gets encouraged by our leaders. That should tell us the truth about them and it.
Actually the areas where guns are not allowed for self defense are areas that it you defend yourself from a criminal, you will probably be charged with 1, or more, crimes.
They have made self defense a crime in those areas.
Since US Cities are the source, sounds like there should be Major Crackdowns on Cities demanded by every Liberal and Conservative – if you really give a damn about victim’s rights. Since Liberal cities are the ones with the shooting issues, not to mention knife and other physical attacks. Can you really expect your “Catch & Release” programs, bleeding heart Liberal District Attorneys that do not even want to uphold the law, and not punish Criminals for “Criminal Activity” is acccomplishing some kind of harmony, YOU ARE THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM!!! Repeat offenders are getting released every minute while many of their victim’s voices are unheard, as is their life changing pain from violent attacks, if they survive at all…
Perhaps Criminally Active persons should focus their activities for their Corrupt Politicians…
(everybody knows that’s where the REAL Money is…)
Here’s a little food for thought, Let him or her who has wisdom have understanding. If the metro’s are run by liberal Democrats,( like the saying goes,) they’re not people, they’re Democrats what should be expected? But now we have to deal with extreme right wing Republicans so who’s on the winning side? I guess it’s those that have thrown their hands up on any political faction and just rely on pure common sense. As for most dangerous country to live in, anyone that has a question about this should go try to live in Ukraine, Syria, any one of the little piss ant countries in Africa with civil war, Try living in Iran with a so called Christian view, or Afgan., some years back it would have been south central Europe during the Bosnian civil war, any country that has had to live with Ethnic cleansing, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, the list is a long one. So for anyone to make this statement, hasn’t done their research at all !!! Wait until things turn real sour here and all the immigrants that feel they need to come here of a better way of life but still feel they need to bring their old ways here and don’t put forth any effort to conform. I’m not trying to present a racist attitude but look back at how things went in so many cities when the rioting started over killing Blacks, it wasn’t the Whites going into the Black neighborhood shooting more Blacks as far as I know, it was Blacks killing Blacks. Sure there were some instances of criminal violence against some Asian people recently but this has been proven to be instigated by bodies with no civilities and likely a result of a wider aspect of societal break down. We all know there is a criminal element in inner cities that prays on others for no other reason but to simply terrorize. Law enforcement has had more than enough time to deal with this and if it had, it would have affected job security and funding for every department in the nation. For over 5,000 years now, just taking that figure from empty air, if you think about it, once the population went over 4, violence has been a big issue, I’m referring to Cain killing his Brother Abble. Nation has risen against nation, brother against brother and it hasn’t stopped and won’t stop until evil has been wiped off the planet.
As long as man is on earth there will be evil. The fact today is many millennials and young people have been brain-washed by people with pure evil intent thus common sense no longer exists. Evil is at the heart of many of the ideologies that exists in the world today. Evil can be defined defined as acts meant to harm or subjugate other people or living animals. BLM, KKK, WOKE, socialism (Communism, Nazism, Fascism), Global Warming Movement to name a few are responsible for many evils we see in America. Time for people who understand what evil is and what good is to stand up for good and attack evil head on. We must callout lies and tell those who are brain-washed how they can think for themselves. Too many people are like mindless fools following the lies and falsehoods put out by the MSM and the political leaders who only love themselves and power, not our nation or its people. Time for political action, not not words!
Once again the gun banners mislead and lie to the public.
The majority of shootings (90%} in these demoncrap run cities is by minority gangs.
Someone flashing gang signs, someone looked at some gang members girlfriend, shootings over turf, shootings over drug dealing,
shootings by rival gangs, or sometimes they don’t like the way you look or dress.
The gun banning politicians put the blame on law abiding citizens and want to ban firearms.
In Los Angeles, the city is banning all firearms over 50 Caliber ” claiming” that this will stop crime.
Without any facts or figures, they ‘ claim” all the gang members have Desert Eagle pistols in 50 AE! Yeah, right, the gangs are going to gun shops and filling out forms, background check, fingerprints, and paying almost $2,000 for a Desert Eagle pistol.
They also banned 50 Caliber machine gun firearms, yeah I’m sure that the gang members are buying these paying $5,000 to $10,000, and a rifle five feet long weighting 40 to 50 pounds.
The actor- rapper Ice T has said that Los Angeles is known as body bag city.
In commiefornia, shoplifter’s walk into clothing stores and grab arm fulls of clothes off the racks and walk out to a waiting car and drive off and no one does anything to stop them execpt to film it on their cell phones and post it on YouTube.
Maybe if these demoncrap run cities would stop listening to a bunch of loud mouth criminals, rioters, looters, protesters and arsonist and stopped trying to defund-abolish the police department and allowed the police to go out and arrest these criminals and put them in prison for long sentences then the crime rate would go down. It’s as simple as that.
Many of these demoncrap run cities have a” gun buy back” scheme where people can bring unwanted guns and get a gift certificate for $50 to purchase tennis shoes. If people have a firearm that they don’t want they can take it to a gun shop and sell it and get more money for it.
At these ” gun buy backs”, the police will have a uncover agent in disguise putting guns on the tables to make the ” gun buy back” look better.
Also at these ” gun buy backs” the police will have a surveillance van taking photos and videos of everyone who shows up and of their cars and license plate number.
These stupid demoncrap politicians actually think that gang members and drug dealers will show up and turn in their stolen handguns in front of dozens of police.
Many say don’t vote for democrats, but many states give drivers license to illegals and also give them a voting card marked ” Democrat”.
In the past two years over 5 million illegals have entered the USA.
The administration is having sections of the border wall taken down and sold off for scrap. This allows the cartels, M 13 gang members, M18 gang members, criminals, drug dealers, murderers, felons, terrorists, spies and saboteurs and prostitutes to cross the border and the administration welcomes them and the crime that they bring.
The Central America countries are emptying out their jails and prisons and sending thousands of criminals and felons to the USA and the administration welcomes them and the crime that they bring.
The USA cannot become the dumping ground for all the world’s poor, unemployed, and criminals. Do we really want America to end up like India with over a billion people living on the streets, alleys, sidewalks and gutters and having to eat garbage out of dumpsters just to survive?
Finish the border wall now!
Many of these illegals are infected with small pox, measles, tuberculosis, polio, leprosy, tape worms, CV, monkey pox and they are not tested after they cross the border. Many get fake working papers and get jobs working in restaurants.
Many Americans are being evicted from their apartments and homes and the administration is giving these apartments and homes to the illegals to live in. And since they don’t speak English and have no job skills, the administration gives each one a $1,000 a month to live on.
These gun banning groups and hunting banning groups are run and funded by Micheal Bloomberg, George Soros, the Chinese government, the U.N., Russia, North Korea and Iran.
Several articles have mentioned that China wants the 2 nd amendment repealed and there are politicians in America who will follow China’s orders!
They say in China, people are forbidden from owning firearms and only the police, military and politiicians can own firearms.
China wants Australia, New Zealand, and America.
China ordered Australia and New Zealand to restrict and ban firearms and they obeyed.
China wants to invade, takeover and enslave America, but first they must repeal the 2 nd amendment and disarm all Americans.
During WW2 Germany and Japan had plans to invade the east coast and west coast of America and have Mexico invade the southern states promising Mexico to give them Arizona, New Mexico and Texas but they were afraid of all the Americans who owned firearms and would fight them off. Now they are joining up to ban all firearms in America!
China just bought a farm in North Dakota near a top secret air force base and no one does anything to stop them. China will bring over spies and saboteurs posing as farm workers.
AOC and the squad and Letitia James want to repeal the 2 nd amendment.
AOC and the squad want to replace the Constitution and Bill of Rights with something out of Castro and Stalin handbook and turn America into a communist workers paradise.
AOC and the squad want to replace the American flag too!
The gun banning far leftist politicians say you must obey us.
We are your masters, we are now your gods, you will bow down before us and worship us or else you will be put in the cattle cars and be sent to the concentration extermination camps!
There are over 2 million laws on the books in America. With something like 100 to 200 more laws added every week.
It is said that a person cannot drive to work or go grocery shopping without breaking half a dozen laws, so that makes everyone a criminal and that’s what the power crazed politicians want so that they can have more power and control over you .
Why is it that back in the 1950’s, a person could walk into a hardware store, gun shop or mail order all kinds of firearms with no background check, no federal forms to fill out and no waiting period and crime was much lower back then.
Repeal the illegal 1934 gangster gun control act.
We no longer have gangster bank robbers riding on sideboards of cars robbing banks.
Today they use computers.
We don’t have bootleggers riding on sideboards of cars shooting at each other.
Make it legal to put a shoulder stock on a handgun.
If it’s a handgun, how can putting a shoulder stock on it make it a rifle?
Make it legal to own sound suppressors to help save hunters and target shooters hearing.
Make it legal to own ” trapper style” lever action rifles with 12″, 13″, 14″ 15″ barrels. These were popular until the 1934 gangster gun control act.
Support and protect your right to keep and own all types of firearms and accessories.
Don’t allow the evil, far leftist, power crazed politicians to restrict and ban firearms in America.
Buy more guns, ammo and magazines now before it’s too late!
“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, 12-20-1787
