Stats Prove Guns Make America Safer
I am against gun violence. In fact, I’m against violence, period. I take pride in comporting myself as a civilized and, thus, nonviolent man. I’m sure you’re much the same.
I am also against lies and communism, which happen to go hand in hand.
After any shooting tragedy (and they only report the government-friendly tragedies) the left, the media, and the idiot politicians (pardon all the redundancy) all scream for more and more “common sense” gun control. The truth is there is no sense, common or otherwise, involved in any of the hysteria. It’s all lies, lies, and more lies.
One of the chief falsehoods floated by our red comrades concerns the “high” numbers of US gun murders. In today’s video feature Bill Whittle blows this nonsense garbage to smithereens. Perrin adds some statistics below. Please watch, then read:

The USA has the highest number of guns per capita and the highest number of guns, period, in private hands in the world. We’re the most heavily armed people who ever lived. Yet we’re not even in the top twenty countries when it comes to murders. That top “honor” goes to Honduras, a place from which, by the way, the left and the globalists love to import natives.
Share this video and these irrefutable numbers with your liberal friends. Most of the stats on the matter come from big government so they’ll have no problem with the base sources. It’s handy this is in video form as many of our opponents are unable to actually read or do math. And it’s more fun this way!
Share with them the following sources of US deaths and associated numbers (2014):
248 people killed with rifles (all types including … assault rifles);
435 people killed with baseball bats and hammers;
660 people killed with punches and kicks;
8,124 people killed with guns of all kinds (offset by 1,000,000+ lives saved by all guns);
14,249 murders of all weapons sources (and unarmed murders);
32,744 killed by automobiles;
Approximately 200,000 killed by doctors and medical professionals;
Approximately 365,000 killed by obesity and fat-related causes;
652,639 killed by “legal” abortions.
Suggest they read (have read to them) More Guns, Less Crime by John Lott. From that book we know about the million or more lives saved every year, in America, thanks to guns. Odd but they always leave the positive half of the firearms/crime equation off. Help them. Set them straight.
Then, after they have all the facts and they’re steaming angry, ask them why it’s so important to ban guns, any guns. In fact, inquire as to why we might actually need more guns and of more powerful varieties (modern machine pistols for instance). Why go after the molehill instead of the mountains?
If they’re honest – and it’s not one of their strong points, let’s face it – but, if they are, they’ll tell you something about population control and communism. That’s the angle. Period. These criminals want you and me disarmed so they and their government pals can run wild on us – literally making us their helpless victims and slaves.
An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject (or worse: dead maybe). Arm yourself with the truth and stand your ground. Those who don’t like it can always move to Honduras, or North Korea, or Iraq, one of the “safe” countries. We must keep America armed and free.
