Hello. See that number in the Title? Guess what it is. I’ll wait.
Yes, it’s got something to do with Firearms. Keep thinking about it.
Give up? Okay, that figure represents the number of people MURDERED BY FIREARMS IN 2014.
So where did I get that number? Everymom Lies? MIckey Bloomberg? Hillarywantstobe Presidentforlife .com? Nope. Got it from the FBI, a DEPARTMENT OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT!
You see, every year, the FBI compiles all these wonderful Stats about Killings, Rapes, Shootings, Bombings, etc., and publishes it in the UNIFORM CRIME REPORT. And these are latest batches.
What’s interesting is the fact that these aren’t “Top Secret,” and ANYONE,INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT,Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Mickey Bloomberg, Japete and all the other Anti-Gunners out there INCLUDING the Lamestream Media has access to this Datum with just a few minutes on the Web.
Here’s another Stat: 11,961. That’s the TOTAL numbers of Murders reported to the FBI.
But wait a minute. If 8,124 people were killed by Firearms, yet 11,961 were Killed, that means 3,837 people were MURDERED by something OTHER THAN FIREARMS!
Yep, that’s right. Knives, Axes, Fists, Poison, Rope, etc killed off almost 4,000 people last year.
Which means if the Anti-Gunners had their way, there still would be at LEAST 4,000 Murdered. And I’d venture to guess that it would climb up to about 9-10 thousand a year.
Why? Because GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE! AND IF THEY CAN’T GET A GUN, THEY’LL USE SOMETHING ELSE!
“But Les, I’ve heard over and over that 32,000+ people die from Guns every year! But the FBI says only 8,000+ are murdered by Guns every year. What Gives?”
Why, it’s simple. Yes, 32,000+ die from Gun Shots every year. But they all are NOT MURDERED!
Most are Suicides, with the rest being Cops Shooting Bad Guys, Hunting Accidents, KIds playing with Guns, etc. But Suicides are the Largest Number of Deaths by Firearms.
In fact, over the last few years, the FBI has added a new Category that MUST be Driving the Obama Admin and the Anti-Gunners NUTS! It’s called “Justifiable Homicide.” And it’s NOT Cops.
You see, a “Justifiable Homicide” would be where YOU hear a Noise in the Night, you grab your Flashlight and a Firearm, you head downstairs, and there’s a Goblin with a Gun or a Knife or an Axe and the Scumbag Charges at YOU and you KILL THEM FIRST!.
It’s what Jay G. used to blog about, the “Dead Goblin Count.” And do you know how many DGCs “Pass On” every year due to an Armed Citizen?
BETWEEN 250 AND 300.
AND THE ANTI-GUNNERS KNOW THIS!
So the next time you get into a Pissing Contest with an Anti-Gun Political Hack, ask them if they have ever checked the UCR BEFORE THEY SAY THAT GUNS DON’T SAVE LIVES!
THEN ask them if the FBI is Lying, or are THEY.
Now, some other Stats. First off, “Mass Shootings.” Mass Shooting are Incidents where Four or More Innocent People are Murdered at one Location and Time. Va. Tech was a “Mass Shooting,” where the DC Sniper was a “Spree Killing.” Technical, I know, Dead is Dead, got it, but I didn’t come up with the Definitions.
According to a Criminologist who also uses the UCRs, “Mass Shootings” are only 0.2% of ALL Firearms Murders. One is much more likely to be Killed in a Robbery Gone Bad at the Gas Station than being killed on a College Campus. But most Mass Shooting DO take in place in Public Areas that are “Gun-Free Zones.”
AND there’s been a 26% RISE in Mass Shootings over the last 10 years. Which is as long as Social Media like Facebook and Twitter,et.al., have been around. So if the Psycho Loser wants to go down in History…. Coincidence? Not so sure that there ISN’T some linkage happening. Can’t prove it, but a lot of these Losers seem to put out some sort of ‘Manifesto” before they head out to the “Gun-Free Zones”, it seems.
But the reality is that one is MUCH more likely to be Murdered by Guns in the “Classic Locations,” so just because you’re NOT in a Gun-Free Zone…
Also, most of the Firearms Murders seem to be Gang Related or in a City with a Big Gang Problem and WEAK RKBA Laws, like New York, Chicago, San Fran. LA, etc. Or the Murders are caused by some Ex-Husband who shoots the Wife because SHE DARED TO DIVORCE ME! So that should help you with “Avoiding” certain areas or People.
Now to the Suicides. Yes, Americans seem to use Guns to Kill themselves. But that’s usually only ONE Murder (unless the Asshole tries “Suicide-by-Cop” or takes out the Family). And yes, I call it Murder, because like Mas Ayoob wrote DECADES ago, “Anyone who tries Suicide is a Person willing to Kill a Human. The Human just happens to be themselves.” Works for me.
But Les! The Antis say that OTHER “Developed Countries” don’t have such a High Rate of Suicide by Guns! Why are we so HIGH!?
Well, guess what? They LIed Again. You see, on Wiki, one can find the Suicide Rate per 100,000 for most Countries AS PUBLISHED BY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, A BRANCH OF THE U.N.
And who’s more Uber-Liberal than the U.N.? Well, guess where the United States Ranks in Suicide-per-100,000? Go on, take a Guess. Second? Fourth? Seventh? Nope.
FIFTIETH. I repeat, 50TH.
What that tells me is that Americans, even using a readily Available Firearm, STILL have more Sanity than the Citizens of 49 other Countries.
And trust me, if someone is Serious about committing Suicide, they’ll find a way. Guns are just more Efficient.
So, wrapping this up, once again, the TRUTH about Firearms Usage in the United States has been DELIBERATELY IGNORED AND TWISTED BY THE ANTI-GUNNERS AND THEIR POLITICAL MASTERS FOR THE SINGLE PURPOSE OF ADVANCING THEIR AGENDA: DISARMING THE AMERICAN CITIZEN. PERIOD.
Got Guns? Got Ammo? Been Practicing? You should. It’s getting Crazy out here. Bubblehead Les Out.
