Riben: Facts/Revelations re US Gun Control or Lack Thereof

Mirah Riben has a provocative article on dissident voice entitled “Statistics, Politics and Solutions in the Gun Discussion.” The following is a listing of many of Riben's enlightening facts and revelations.

1. FBI statistics for homicides in 2011:

Total homicides:                                  12,664
Firearm homicides:                               8,583
Hammer and Club homicides:               496
Knife and other blade homicides:        1,694

2. "2009 findings for homicides by the UN Office on Drugs and Crimes state that 66.9% of all homicides in the U.S. were from using firearms."

3. "More than a million Americans have been killed by guns since 1968 – more than in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and various smaller conflicts, combined."

4. "More than half of all gun deaths in the U.S. are suicides and not included in numbrers above. Nor are accidental fatalities by guns of all kinds included." Re report from National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, January 2013.

5. “The United States suffers far more violent deaths than any other wealthy nation, due in part to the widespread possession of firearms and the practice of storing them at home in a place that is often unlocked, according to a report released Wednesday by two of the nation’s leading health research institutions.” Re report from National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, January 2013.

We knew Obama could go lower. And so he has.

No one but Our Leader, manifest in grace and compassion, could rush toward the granny-starving compromise for which he and the GOP have so fervently wished... so they can get on with the diversionary tactic of gun-control legislation. After five years of inaction, and dozens of mass murders, why the rush to craft legislation that will, as the others, die in committee? It's for the (dead) kids, see? Read below the fold...

To Defenders of the Second Amendment

It is interesting that so many are so passionate about the 2nd amendment:

 

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

The Sanity Offense

Congress is working hard so that only crazy people can't blow your head off with a legally purchased gun. If you don't suffer from a diagnosed mental illness, well, squeeze that trigger, old chum! Wham-blam-thank you not-crazy man! Read below the fold...

Bang bang, that awful sound


The Right is quick to try to legislate morality-sometimes.

Today's SCOTUS vote has the Right wetting their collective pants for joy.
