Liberal And Gun Hater Not The Same Thing

Editor:

Being a liberal and gun hater should not be tarred with the same brush.

Chasing the delusion of controlling guns will control killings is absurd.

Back in the 1970s there was a rising gun ownership and rising crime.

We now have rising gun ownership and falling crime. All the guns and gun laws don’t seem to affect the crime rate.

All schools should have more than one well-trained person (teachers/guards) allowed to carry a concealed gun. And it should be posted that armed security are in the school — uniformed armed guards.

If a person (or persons) is set on killing, that’s the first person they would take out. With a person in civilian clothes, they may not know who is security.

As for an AR 15 rifle and spike heeled shoes, baseball bat, rock, knife and a pitchfork — let’s not try and blur the lines. An AR 15 is considered an assault weapon even being a .22 caliber.

Subject: Firearms as Weapons ARE AT THE BOTTOM REGARDING DEATHS.....

COMPARE THE 10 BIG KILLERS IN THE USA> These stats are from the US Center for Disease Control, and the FBI.

  1. Tobacco Use.....................................................529,000
  2. Medical Errors...................................................195,000
  3. Unintentional Injuries.........................................118,021
  4. Alcohol Abuse................................................... 107,400
  5. Motor Vehicle Accidents................................... 34,485
  6. Unintentional Poisioning................................... 31,758
  7. Drug Abuse........................................................ 25,500
  8. Unintentional Falls............................................. 24,792
  9. Non-Firearm Homicides................................... 16,799 ACCORDING TO THE FBI, the #1 weapon used in Homicides is a "BASEBALL BAT".
  10. Firearm Homicides......................................... 11,493

Note the lethality of baseball bats. Watch out. Let’s see here, between tobacco and alcohol, there are 636,000 deaths per year, or 55 times as many as with firearms. Motor vehicles are 3 times as many as firearms. Seems to me we need to have special licenses for smokes and booze, with classes required, and background checks. Given the ratio, that should occur at least every year, as firearms licenses need to be renewed every 5 years, with immediate revocation upon the occurrence of any incident. Cars could be lengthened to 18 months, with the same revocation policy.

BTW, this data comes from our Federal Govt- the FBI and Center for Disease Control, and they’re the ones promoting getting rid of firearms, to protect the public.

What’s wrong with this picture???
