Tell Us Something We Didn’t Already Know!

Another proggy myth disproven! Of course, the proggy politicians already knew this.

Really all you had to do was look where gun control was in place and see the crime statistics!

Gun Control Reduces Violent Crimes

The proggy drones will be out in force regurgitating the mindless talking points. (Since this posting, they have not – I guess they did not get their marching orders).

In short, as we defenders of the 2nd Amendment have long known, the observable facts simply will not support the strictly emotional arguments of the aping gun grabbers regarding both violent crime and suicide. Interestingly, the study also relates a survey of incarcerated felons that confirms that a criminal’s greatest fear is that his victim may be armed. That certainly makesthe case for a well-armed citizenry regardless of the definition of militia. The fact that the most recent acts of gun violence were conducted in gun free zones (by mentally troubled individuals who should have been in an institution – another leftist barrier), also shows the folly of the left’s mindless arguments.

    The ultimate irony is that Obama has turned out to be the best gun and ammo salesman in the world. Only the most batsh*t crazy leftist could possibly believe that there will ever be a successful effort to disarm the American public.

      that is unfortunately @ 47%

        A. Guns save more lives than they take; prevent more injuries than they inflict

        * Guns used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year — or about 6,850 times a day. [1] This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives. [2]

        * Of the 2.5 million times citizens use their guns to defend themselves every year, the overwhelming majority merely brandish their gun or fire a warning shot to scare off their attackers. Less than 8% of the time, a citizen will kill or wound his/her attacker.[3]

        * As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse.[4]

        * Even anti-gun Clinton researchers concede that guns are used 1.5 million times annually for self-defense. According to the Clinton Justice Department, there are as many as 1.5 million cases of self-defense every year. The National Institute of Justice published this figure in 1997 as part of “Guns in America” — a study which was authored by noted anti-gun criminologists Philip Cook and Jens Ludwig.[5]

        * Armed citizens kill more crooks than do the police. Citizens shoot and kill at least twice as many criminals as police do every year (1,527 to 606).[6] And readers of Newsweek learned that “only 2 percent of civilian shootings involved an innocent person mistakenly identified as a criminal. The ‘error rate’ for the police, however, was 11 percent, more than five times as high.”[7]

        * Handguns are the weapon of choice for self-defense. Citizens use handguns to protect themselves over 1.9 million times a year. [8] Many of these self-defense handguns could be labeled as “Saturday Night Specials.”

        neo, glad to see these stats. Last night I finished my NRA certification and any day I will apply for my CCW permit.

        what will you carry? (meaning .380, .45 etc)

      • Amazona August 30, 2013 / 3:10 pm

        neo, my carry gun will probably be a S/W ultralight revolver, though I need to work with it because it is not a fun gun to shoot, with the recoil you get from such a small and lightweight weapon. It is a .38. So far my favorite weapon to shoot has been a .357 though so far I have only fired .38s in them. I like their balance, their weight, their size. That will be my home defense weapon—that and a shotgun.

        I fired some semi-automatics but for now will stick to the simpler mechanism of the revolver.

    All in all, almost every Liberal “fact” has been disproved time and again; however, to no avail because they (Liberals, in general) are driven by emotion and not facts. In this case there are millions of weapons used yearly to defend people against and/or stop folks who wish to do harm to innocents than are used in crime. Liberal standard is if we have no weapons everyone would be safer. More laws and regulations are needed. Look no further than the most gun restrictive State/County in this nation of Chicago, Illinois who has brought out folks to walk the kids to elementary school so they may get back and forth without getting shot. Right after that review the crime statistics of England.

    Not to change topics but rather to reinforce the concept that Liberal policies are not here to actually help people but to “feel good” while keeping them dependent on one form of government or another is today’s strike by fast food workers. The fast food workers here (NC–I reckon like everywhere else) want a wage of $15/hour. No skills other than “You want fries with that?” and somehow they believe their jobs are worth more than what is offered to an entry-level college graduate educational professional aka. teacher. Don’t go off topic to scream about “We should pay teachers more”, etc.because if we privatize schools we could. Why is the Federal government suing Louisiana to prevent better education? This is a separate topic. My point is do you want to pay fast food workers more than teachers? Or is this another Liberal feel good point? Liberals are not really here to help anyone but rather to make them think that someone actually cares about them.

    Then again if you “believe” the MSM then only the children of people of color are suffering and need food to survive when facts once again prove otherwise. Why, without free lunches, etc. this entire nation would starve. Once again, another Liberal falsehood as well as being a topic for another thread.

    BTW, Neo, I, among others understand the 47% comment but it is not really required any longer as there are many folks that are part of that number that have paid into the system and do not deserve the degradation.

    Normae, you do know the original background of Audubon and the Audubon Society? He, among others, killed thousands of varieties of birds over the years so he could post, paint and define them. Some of them to extinction as well. Whoo hoo. No agenda—just a piece of information.

    That and I get the “Cannot post:” message quite often but think it has more to do with WordPress than anything to do with this blog and it’s editors–in particular if one is doing a “cut & paste” like I just did from MS Word to posting. A lot of what we (UNIX folks) call DOS fuzz to deal with.

    I was referring to JR’s statement of bat shiite fools demanding gun control. My estimation was @ 47% are the donks who support it.
    I meant nothing about those who do, or do not pay into the tax system. Sooooo no degradation intended …but I do get your message…. Semper Fi 🙂
