Progressive Socialists Targeting Santa Monica Airport Tower?

Gun Control: What the democrats don't want you to know -- Gun deaths shaped by race in America

There is little or no doubt in my mind that the progressive socialist democrats want to disarm law-abiding Americans to pursue the goals of tyrannical, centrally-planned, strong government, international socialism.

And, to avoid angering their core minority power base, they simply refuse to acknowledge that the tens of millions of legal, law-abiding gun owners are not the problem – the problem lies in democrat-controlled inner cities, with strict gun control regulations – and  with minority criminal gangs and wannabe minority youth gangsta’s shaped by a small segment of media marketers that profits from faux crime fashion and other products.


Gun deaths shaped by race in America -- Gun deaths are shaped by race in America. Whites are far more likely to shoot themselves, and African Americans are far more likely to be shot by someone else.

The statistical difference is dramatic, according to a Washington Post analysis of data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A white person is five times as likely to commit suicide with a gun than to be shot with a gun; for each African American who uses a gun to commit suicide, five are killed by other people with guns.

 Where a person lives matters, too. Gun deaths in urban areas are much more likely to be homicides, while suicide is far and away the dominant form of gun death in rural areas. States with the most guns per capita, such as Montana and Wyoming, have the highest suicide rates; states with low gun ownership rates, such as Massachusetts and New York, have far fewer suicides per capita.

Suicides and homicides are volatile human dramas. Both acts shatter families, friends and sometimes communities. But the reactions are as different as black and white, and those differences shape the nation’s divided attitudes toward gun control. For instance, African Americans tend to be stronger backers of tough gun controls than whites. A Washington Post-ABC News poll this month found that about three-quarters of blacks support stronger controls, compared with about half of whites. The poll also found that two-thirds of city dwellers support stronger gun controls, while only about a third of rural residents back them.

Gun homicides, especially mass shootings, tend to spark demands for change. Although suicides account for almost twice as many gun deaths as homicides nationwide, they tend to be quiet tragedies, unnoticed outside the hushed confines of family and friends.

Bottom line …

If the democrats, or for that matter any politicians, were honest, they would acknowledge that:

  1. Suicidal people will always find a way to kill themselves.
  2. You cannot detect and deter crazies and criminals who do not abide by the law.
  3. You cannot significantly remove enough guns in our nation to make a difference, as there are relatively few gun-related deaths when measured against the law-abiding population
  4. That if the government was serious about gun-related crime, they would declare minority gangs to be domestic terrorists and proceed against the gangs, rather than attempt to create more victims by disarming law-abiding people.
  5. And, acknowledge that much of the legislation on the books is not enforced and that new legislation is crafted by the latest group of politicians in response to lobbyists, pressure groups or to give the appearance “they care.”

That is, if they were honest. I suggest that the conditions that create crime were actually created and exacerbated by a corrupt political system which directs money meant to create jobs and reverse urban decay has been directed at their political supporters, the unions who provide campaign funding and voter support and the special interests who funnel money to their campaigns in return for perks, privileges, and profitable government contracts.

Time to clean up politics … not disarm citizens.
