Guns Don’t Kill People, Gun Control Does
Over the past two decades, the number of gun-related crimes in the U.S. has dropped dramatically, while the number of guns bought and sold has increased.

The United States is 3rd in murders throughout the world.
But if you remove
1) Chicago
2) Detroit

the United States is then
189th (out of 193) countries in the entire world.

Gun Myths Regarding Accidents:
Accidental gun fatalities are a serious problem
Handguns are unsafe and cause accidents
Innocent bystanders are often killed by guns
Citizens are too incompetent to use guns for protection
Gun accidents are flooding emergency rooms
“Junk” guns are dangerous and should be banned
Guns should be made to conform to product liability laws

A car is more likely to kill you — or anyone else in the U.S. — than a gun.
But 99.4% of car deaths are accidental.
98.5% of gun deaths are intentional.
And 64% of gun fatalities are suicides.

Eight Provable Facts Regarding Gun Violence in America:

1. Violent crime is down and has been on the decline for decades.
2. The principal public safety concerns with respect to guns are suicides and illegally owned handguns, not mass shootings.
3. A small number of factors significantly increase the likelihood that a person will be a victim of a gun-related homicide.
4. Gun-related murders are carried out by a predictable pool of people.
5. Higher rates of gun ownership are not associated with higher rates of violent crime.
6. There is no clear relationship between strict gun control legislation and homicide or violent crime rates.
7. Legally owned firearms are used for lawful purposes much more often than they are used to commit crimes or suicide.
8. Concealed carry permit holders are not the problem, but they may be part of the solution.

Fewer guns or more gun control laws do not equal less murder.
The worst three percent of [gun murder] counties [in the U.S. produce] almost 60 percent of the murders.  Almost all of these counties are in large urban areas, where Democrats [and therefore ‘gun control’ laws] rule.
Additionally… the overall murder rate for the top 101 [counties] of highest and lowest rates of gun ownership is virtually identical.
At the state level… the numbers reveal the same: there’s no correlation between the presence of guns and the rate of murder.

Why ‘Gun Control’ Will Never Prevent, Or Likely Even Reduce, Mass Killings
Mass killings are very rare, accounting for only 0.2 percent of homicides every year and approximately 1 percent of homicide victims.
Only 12 percent of mass killings are mass public shootings. Most mass killings are familicides (murders of family members or intimate partners) and felony-related killings (such as robberies gone awry or gang-related ‘turf battles’).
Although there has been a slight increase in the frequency of mass public shootings over the past few years, the rates are still similar to what the United States experienced in the 1980s and early 1990s.
Over 90 percent of public mass shootings take place in ‘gun-free zones’ where civilians are not permitted to carry firearms.
A complete ban on “assault weapons” will save very few lives: Six out of every 10 mass public shootings are carried out by handguns alone, while only one in 10 is committed with a rifle alone.
The average age of mass public shooters is 34, which means that increasing the minimum age for purchasing firearms would not target the main perpetrators of mass public shootings.
Few mass public shooters have used “high-capacity magazines,” and there is no evidence that the lethality of their attacks would have been affected by delays of two to four seconds to switch magazines. In fact, some of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history were carried out with “low-capacity” weapons:
The Virginia Tech shooter killed 32 and injured 17 with two handguns, one of which had a 10-round magazine and the other a 15-round magazine. He simply brought 19 extra magazines.
Twenty-three people were killed and another 20 injured in a Killeen, Texas, cafeteria by a man with two 9mm handguns, capable of maximums of 15-round and 17-round magazines, respectively.
A mentally disturbed man armed with two handguns and a shotgun shot and killed 21 people in a San Ysidro McDonald’s and injured another 19. The handguns utilized 13-round and 20-round magazines, and the shotgun had a five-round capacity.
60 percent of mass public shooters had been diagnosed with a mental disorder or had demonstrated signs of serious mental illness prior to the attack.
A large body of research shows a statistical link between mass public killings and serious untreated psychiatric illness.
The United States does not have an extraordinary problem with mass public shootings compared to other developed countries.
After adjusting for population differences, many other developed countries have worse problems with mass public shootings than the United States has.
There were 27 percent more casualties per capita from mass public shootings in the European Union than in the U.S. from 2009 to 2015.
Mass killers often find ways to kill even without firearms [see examples in article].
In other countries, bombings, mass stabbings, and car attacks frequently kill more people than even the deadliest mass shootings in the United States [see examples in article].

and…

In an average year 4 to 5 times more people are knifed to death… 30 times more people are killed by drunken drivers… and 200 times more die from drug overdoses than are killed with [so-called] ‘assault’ rifles.
More people are killed every year with blunt objects, or are simply beaten to death, than are murdered using [so-called] ‘assault’ rifles.
Only about 3-4% of murders using firearms (out of about 11,000 annually) in the US involve rifles
The average number of people killed per year in all types of public mass shootings (3+ killed, not including shooter) over the last 38 years was 25.  The average number of people killed at schools in mass (3+ killed) school shootings, adult and child, over the same 38-year period was 4 per year.

If we banned every private firearm in America, they would reach back to that traitor and murderer Timothy McVeigh.  He used a fertilizer bomb [and a rented truck].  If we banned all fertilizer, then degenerates who craved fame would use pressure cookers.  You know, like the Muslim refugees who blew up the Boston Marathon.  Evil will find a way.  It always does…  Why is it, do you think, that Muslim colonists feel free to maul, rape, and assault women in Norway, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and Britain? They know perfectly well that none of the helpless natives in the area will be armed or could resist them…  Stripping the population of the means to protect itself renders them helpless before the barbarians whom our [elected liberal politicians] keep inviting in.  In America, that would mean not just jihadis, but members of the drug cartels that control our southern border.  Their native land, Mexico, has draconian gun control.  How’s that working out for them?…  [Liberals] want to preen as promoting ‘high-minded’… policies that impair the nation’s safety.  They also want protection, so many of them have their own private or government security.  But the citizenry as a whole must be kept defanged and helpless, dependent on faraway riot police to come and collect the corpses…  It’s telling that in America, after the Civil War, one of the key goals of the Ku Klux Klan was to use gun control laws to disarm black citizens.

The Second Amendment:

GunControl

“… gun-control efforts, while noble, would only have a modest impact on the rate of gun violence in America.  Why?  Because it’s too late.  There are an estimated 280 million to 300 million guns in priv

ate hands in America — many legally owned, many not.  Each year, more than 4 million new guns enter the market…  America’s level of gun ownership means that even if the Supreme Court — which ruled in 2008 that the Second Amendment gives citizens the individual right to own firearms, as gun advocates have long insisted — suddenly reversed itself and ruled that the individual ownership of handguns was illegal, there would be no practical way for a democratic country to locate and seize those guns.”

Peer-Reviewed Sociological Gun Research:

… according to The Journal of the American Medical Association:Our analyses provide no evidence that implementation of the Brady Act was associated with a reduction in homicide rates. … We find no differences in homicide or firearm homicide rates to adult victims in the 32 states directly subject to the Brady Act provisions compared with the remaining control states…. [A] CDC report said,Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.‘  … Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.

[T]he Nuremberg Rallies [were] held annually by the Nazi Party for a period of fifteen years in the 1920s and 1930s.  The rallies were mass events, attended by hundreds of thousands.  Children – the Hitler Youth – were prominently featured, along with stagecraft and pageantry.  The purpose of the rallies was to whip the masses into an emotional fervor while Hitler denounced the Jews.  It worked.  And something similar is happening in the recent spate of children’s anti-gun marches, typified by the “March for Our Lives” just concluded in Washington, D.C…  Oddly enough, they don’t seem too concerned about the 64,000 annual deaths from overdoses, the 6,000-12,000 annual AIDS deaths, or 37,000 deaths in car crashes.  The ‘March for Our Lives’ is exposed as ridiculous, over-the-top hysteria when you logically look at the statistics of what is actually more likely to kill them… in the U.K. since 1970, we find that 390 people have been killed with bombs and only 34 with handguns and ‘assault rifles.’  Yet they [Britain] banned the guns.  Fancy that.
