So of course, every time there is a shooting, democrats and liberals go crazy and explain how we need more intense gun laws. What they fail to understand or what they refuse to understand, is that criminals and people who have the intent to kill will ALWAYS find a way to kill!
You don’t need a gun to cause serious harm and multiple deaths; owning a gun sure does make that easy but one thing that Europe is learning real quickly that a car can be just as efficient as a gun. In August, in Spain, 14 people were killed and 100 were injured from a terrorist attack. In July, in London, seven people were killed and about 48 were injured from a terrorist attack. Most recently eight people died from terrorist attack in New York. Or the one woman who was ran over at that confederate statue protest, remember? All of which took place this year in 2017. All of these were done by people wanting to kill; and that’s what they did, they killed. With a gun, they probably would have killed more. But they still killed. So basically it boils down to how many people do we want to die when someone attacks and how do we want to die?
Let’s see, what about bombs? Well, in May 22 people died at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. A couple of weeks back, a journalist was the sole target of a car bomb; can you imagine if a whole bus was a target of a bomb? We’re lucky though because most car bombings are done in the middle east. Oh, what about June in Brussels, were 32 were killed from a bomb? Again, we’re lucky because most of these bombings are taking place in Europe-you know where they have very strict gun laws. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about the numerous women who are being raped in Germany and Sweden and Denmark, easily being over powered by men. Maybe if they were able to carry and protect themselves, the rapes would go down if the rapist knew there was a chance of him getting killed.
Are stricter gun control laws really going to help Chicago? This article right here says the Chicago gun laws aren’t very strict and that is why crime has gotten worst. She says New York has very strict gun laws and their crime is low. The author goes on to say these guns are coming from outside of Chicago, and that Chicago doesn’t have gun stores. Wait what? If they’re coming from outside of Chicago then…those who are getting them outside of Chicago will still get them outside of Chicago even if the laws are stricter-so that’s a contradiction.
Let us go back to New York. Let’s look at the stats. In New York, your chances of being a victim in a violent crime: death, rape, assault is 1 in 263 out of a total population of 19 million. Out of 19 million that’s about 44,000 compared to the United States as a whole of 300 million and about 700,000. So I guess that’s a matter of opinion. Is 1 in 263 that bad? Let’s look at California. Out of a population of 33 million, you are 1 in 265 in regards to chances of being involved in a violent crime as a victim. Hmm, so that means that New York is pretty dangerous compared to California apparently so that author obviously didn’t do her research. Now let’s look at a state like Texas where we actually have strict gun laws: background check, registration and permits, training for those who conceal and carry. In a population of 27 million, you are 1 in 243 in encountering a violent crime; hmm, when looking at the numbers, it would seem Texas is just below both of these states but still not so much in percentage wise. We’re less likely to be harmed but still have a chance(I blame Laredo).
I am all for strict gun laws such as back ground checks, mental checks, training for carry but I believe we should be able to protect ourselves if need be. It’s ironic because the Sutherland shooter, he was killed; if not wounded by a man with a gun. The killer could have gotten away and probably would have if it weren’t for the hero with the gun. Good people with guns don’t do harm nor do we kill for the intent to kill. We do harm when we fill that we or our community are being harmed.
It’s ironic that the liberals say we need to get rid of guns or have stricter gun laws when it was the democrats prior to the 1960’s that said black people shouldn’t have guns, “we need to disarm black America”. And who do we have to thank for that, Ronald Reagan. White Americans didn’t want slaves to have guns; they also didn’t want freed black people to have guns either.
“Police brutality, police brutality, Alt-Right, Neo-Nazis”-come on, if the liberals got their way, do you believe the Alt-Right movement, the Neo-Nazi movement will let down those guns? Nope, and guess what-they want to kill you and people like me. “You can’t beat up a faggot if that faggot has a gun”. “You can’t beat down a woman if that woman has a gun”. “You can’t hang a nigga, if that nigga has a gun.”
Someone said that if America was a harmonized, unified country, this could work as in strict gun laws, or even taking them away. But America, we are so divided and we are filled with so much hate, and anger that taking away guns alone is not going to be enough to stop maniacs from attacking people with the intent to kill.
Like I said, I’m all for gun control laws as I mentioned but if you’re going to make them stricter and nothing changes-still same old, same old attacks and assaults-then I’m gonna be one pissed bitch.
