Gun Ownership Hits Record High, While Murder Rates Hit New Low

0

Gun ownership is how America was able to begin and helps us keep a safe society. Liberals want to control everyone and see gun ownership as a way for people to maintain their freedom.

The rash of gun violence we have seen is because liberals have allowed it. They have made sure that insane people can’t be put away and are treated as normal when everyone knows they need help. They make safe zones when they know these are just targets for these nuts.

Why have liberals made this concoction of death? The answer is simple. They believe, we will give them the ability to legislate control through more gun laws.

Being armed is one way to stop these plans.

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

Robert A. Heinlein

Indeed.

The New York Times front-page editorial asserts a “gun epidemic,” which is an odd phrase, unless you think guns themselves — not deaths or shootings — are an evil.

If the editors meant to refer to a gun-death epidemic or a mass-shooting epidemic, here’s a relevant bit of information: Per-capita murders in the U.S. are at their lowest level since FBI records began, and they are trending downwards. The Times editors write “motives do not matter to the dead.” I would add that “weapons of choice do not matter to the dead.” So, here’s a chart of all murders in the U.S, taken from FBI data.

This dramatic drop in per-capita murders to the lowest point ever recorded since the FBI began tabulating this data 55 years ago is a wonderful thing, especially as it continues to drop as more Americans own more guns that ever.

While the anti-gun left clings to the delusion that there fewer gun owners than ever based on junk polling data, we know in the real world that Americans have purchased more than 100 million firearms during Obama’s Presidency, that there are more concealed carriers than ever, and there more women, minorities, and youth involved in shooting than ever.

If citizens in Chicago were allowed to defend themselves the violence would plummet.

Liberals want to try and excuse this by saying that criminals aren’t obeying the laws. And that all we need to do is get further guns laws and take away criminals’ weapons.

This insanity doesn’t make any sense, but it is what we have to deal with when talking to liberals. Our only hope to defeat liberals is to outvote them on Election Day.
