Surprising Truth about Homicide Using Guns

After the horrible killings at the high school in Florida we again are focused on violence using guns.

Notice that I do not refer to “gun violence” which is a trick phrase used by Democrats to imply that guns commit violence. They do not. Humans commit violence and homicide using guns, and by many other means too.

The Founders of America guaranteed the right to bear arms in the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution for a reason: It is called ‘self-defense’. In short the most fundamental right that we as humans have is the right to defend ourselves from attack, and guns give us that right and that power with a small weapon that can be carried on our person.

So let us look at some of the facts. How about the ongoing claim that “Europe is peaceful” and that the United States in contrast is a violent nation of gun owners.

Between 1900 and 1950 an estimated 100 million Europeans were killed in war and fascist/communist genocide. Hundreds of millions more had their lives disrupted and ruined by World War I and World War II, and by communist oppression. The physical infrastructure of the Continent was shattered twice over.

Did the United States experience such suffering? No. These wars and genocide could have been prevented if the people of Europe had been armed and had been able to fight back against their oppressive governments.

So if America today is so bad and dangerous why do the illegal immigrants continue breaking down the doors to come here?

Good question. Now let us look at gun homicide rates in the US. We think from seeing these mass shootings that gun homicides are out of control. But here are the actual statistics:

*Between 1993 and 2013 the number of privately-owned firearms increased 56% but the homicide rate by guns fell 49%. It is now at historic lows over the last century.

*The homicide rate using guns spiked after the 1960s when we adopted liberal policies that went soft on criminals and portrayed criminals as people who are not evil but just misguided and in need of our compassion. The rate also spiked after new gun-control policies were adopted in the aftermath of the assassination of president John F. Kennedy in 1963.

*There are currently 20,000 US gun laws. They work well. But sometimes they are not enforced or they are loosely enforced. This needs to end.

*The murder rate using guns started to fall sharply with strict new punishment laws implemented in the early 1990s.

*Hollywood, which is full of pacifist Democrat gun controllers, has been producing the most violent films in history over the last 50 years. In other words, they do not want any “gun control” in their films. There is also wide gun violence in network TV shows. So much for ‘gun control’.

*Half of all homicides using guns in America are committed by blacks using illegal guns.

*The homicide/crime rates in Mexico are now some of the worst in the world yet liberals do not want to build a wall on the Mexican border to prevent this violence from coming over the border.

*Liberals who want US guns strictly controlled never talk about the massive crime wave being committed by illegal immigrants living in the US.

*Liberals who want guns controlled never talk about the crime wave sweeping Europe from muslim migrants. Look at what has happened to London under its “peaceful” muslim mayor. Here is Breitbart News reporting on that:

Britain’s media celebrated in droves when London elected its first Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, in May 2016.

Now the cacophony caused by the “we’re not racist” backslapping has ended, the true implications of a Khan mayoralty are being realised.

In Britain’s capital over the past year, Khan presided over rises in knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, homicide, and more. And not just by a little bit, either.

Some in the media … predicted Khan might be a disaster for London, but the extent to which this is true was beyond even our worst nightmares.

… Data from the Mayor of London’s Police and Crime Office — led by former lobbyist-turned-Deputy Mayor Sophie Linden — reveals a sharp uptick in violent crime in Khan’s first year.

From the years 2015/16 to 2016/17, homicides in London rose by 27.1 per cent. Youth homicide jumped 70 per cent. Serious youth violence was up 19 per cent. Robbery was up 33.4 per cent, while home burglaries rose by 18.7 per cent.

Theft went up by over 10,000 incidents in a year, up 33.9 per cent, and there were more than 4,000 additional knife crime incidents under Khan than under his predecessor, a rise of 31.3 per cent.

Rape in the capital rose by 18.3 per cent, while there were 2,551 incidents of gun crime, representing a rise of 16.3 per cent on the previous year.

This is no surprise, just like terrorism in America and attacks on police spiked under Obama. It is all a result of leadership at the top. These leaders do not have to directly say anything; they telegraph their message every day.

Also notice “knife crime incidents”. They are a substitute in Europe for guns…

You can be sure that there will be zero mention of London’s soaring crime rate in the American Fake News media that love Sadiq Khan since he is a muslim, just like no Fake News media sources have ever reported on the shocking reality of black crime in America.

Democrat Congressmen Dined with Terrorist Leaders

On another front, we have Democrat politicians in the US commiserating with violent terrorist leaders and those like Louis Farrakhan who hate America and have praised Hitler. The Daily Caller reports:

Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals.

Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam.

Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terros since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours after speaking to the UN General Assembly.

This is appalling but expected. Ellison and Carson are both black American converts to islam. Even worse, Ellison is now the deputy chairman of the Democrat party which has veered to the radical side of the spectrum, including alliances with extremist islam.

Obama was photographed smiling with Farrakhan in 2005. That photo was suppressed so as not to hurt Obama’s chance of being elected president. It came out in public in January 2018.

It gets worse. The Daily Caller reported:

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, has attended multiple meetings with Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan while in Congress, The Daily Caller has learned.

Ellison’s past ties to Farrakhan are well known: he admitted to The Washington Post during his first congressional campaign in 2006 that he worked with the Nation of Islam for approximately 18 months ahead of Farrakhan’s 1995 Million Man March. Since he ran for Congress, Ellison has repeatedly promised the public that he left Farrakhan in the past.

But Ellison’s associations with Farrakhan continued even as he served in Congress, TheDC has found.
Ellison attended at least three meetings where Farrakhan was present — including a private visit to Farrakhan’s hotel room — according to photos and videos reviewed by TheDC and Farrakhan’s own statements.

We have severe problems globally with terrorism because hundreds of millions of people around the world are sympathetic to terrorist nations like Iran. Obama was one of them. He celebrated the muslim holiday of ramadan at the White House every year and often spoke highly of islam while routinely trashing Christianity.

Unfortunately Obama and Ellison can never explain why millions of muslims are migrating out of their dark and oppressed nations to come to the Christian West. (Hint: It is to have the better lives that Christian cultures give to all.)
