Read the Facts, Forget the BS!

This was posted by a friend on FB, I thought it worthy…

Sharing this data from a friend who has researched these statistics thoroughly. There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. The U.S. population is 324,059,091 as of June 22, 2016 (the last searchable census numbers) Do the math: 0.000000925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:

-65% of those deaths are by suicide, which would never be prevented by gun laws.

-15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified.

-17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons – better known as gun violence.

-3% are accidental discharge deaths.

So technically, “gun violence” is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Now lets look at how those deaths spanned across the nation:

-480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago

-344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore

-333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit

-119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years)

So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause. This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state -an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1.

Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equal, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths.

Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault are all done by criminals. It is ludicrous to think that criminals will obey laws. That is why they are called criminals.

But what about other deaths each year?

Nearly 75% of all deaths in the United States are attributed to just 10 causes, with the top three of these accounting for over 50 percent of all deaths. Over the last 5 years, the main causes of death in the U.S. have remained fairly consistent.

1. Heart disease

2. Cancer (malignant neoplasms)

3. Chronic lower respiratory disease

4. Accidents (unintentional injuries)

5. Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases)

6. Alzheimer’s disease

7. Diabetes

8. Influenza and pneumonia

9. Kidney disease (nephritis, nephritic syndrome, and nephrosis)

10. Suicide Guns don’t even make the top ten list. Not to mention: -40,000+ die from a drug overdose–THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!

-36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths.

-34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities(exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide).

-200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors. You are safer walking in the worst areas of Chicago than you are when you are in a hospital!

-710,000 people die per year from heart disease. Where is the real war on fast food? Why are we not teaching healthy eating in schools?

So what is the point? If the liberals and the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease in cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually of all gun-related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.). A 10% reduction in medical errors would be 66% of the total number of gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides -Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions! So you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns? It’s pretty simple: (to Steven Waugh’s point)

Taking away guns gives control to governments. The founders of this nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to disarm the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace.

Thus, the second amendment was proudly and boldly included in the U.S. Constitution. It must be preserved at all costs. So the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts and remember these words from Noah Webster: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed.”

    Steve, I would suggest you take out 2 zero’s, if my math serves me correctly, 0.00009258 is correct.

  2. Jackie Evans

    Great read and truth. Thanks for posting it and I have shared it. Perhaps it may enlighten more people…

  3. Math is wrong. This is correct:

    30,000 / 324,059,091 * 100 = 0.0092575708670.009257570867% ~= 9 thousandths of a percent

    For instance half of a population is 50%

    1/2 * 100 = 0.5 * 100 = 50%

    1. Kim

      Hi Math is correct. When converting to %, you divide by 100, not multiply. Per cent means “hundredth” or per 100 and per means divide.

      1. Kim

        Correcting my own comment……… are correct!

    If number of sucides in US is on average same as in other countries where guns are banned, then we can say that those deaths are not connected with guns 100%. Alcoholism is the biggest problem. Alcohol should be taxed more and more expensive if some sels it without paying tax, his property should be taken in % points. Half of all those mentioned health related problems are connected with alcoholism. But it is forrbiden to talk against capitalists who owns those companies. Most funny is when alcoholic goes to doctor and think that his problem with some organ just need some of more medican attention and care, like some medication, even doctor is not allowed to say it directly.

    1. Chia Cha

      Most of violent crime and car accidents are alcohol related but they will never say that on TV. They never say guy was simply alcoholic. Alcoholism is half glass of pure alcohol on average every day. Meaning 1L (bottle) of vine, or 4 beers of 0.5L (can). Alcoholism needs 10 years to develop (of drinking), to stop drinking chances are then same as to stop using heroine, 20%. There is no alcoholic which is able to live more then 60, there are no old alcoholics because no one is becoming alcoholic later. If you like to drink much that means you have both genes for alcohol, therefore you can drink much. 50% of people does not like to drink much therefore they would never become alcoholics because one glass 2dl of vine or 1 beer of 0.5L per day is food, not drink, and they do no have genes to sustain more, therefore they would not become alcoholics.

    Do we have a well regulated militia. Also, most gun ‘opponents’ looking to ban guns, but put more checks in place…I realize it can seem like a ‘slippery slope’ but i think it can be done effectively without impacting our well regulated militia.
    Lastly, even AR’s aren’t going to provide much protection against tanks, rockets and Apache’s…so the argument that pea-shooters (in comparison) provide any sort of protection from the State is absurd.
    If ‘gun proponents’ were serious about this Amendment to the Constitution they’d focus on creating a well regulated militia which may indeed provide protection against the State…but they haven’t/don’t…so that debunks their argument that they’re fighting to maintain the Constitution and provide protection from a corrupt State. Do they not see the flawed logic in their thinking and how obvious it is to others?

    1. Sam J.

      “…Lastly, even AR’s aren’t going to provide much protection against tanks, rockets and Apache’s…”

      This is a poor argument because to control an area you have to get out of the vesicles and patrol. True if you come in and exterminate the population in an area you don’t have to get out but does the government want to do that? If they do that first they have to worry will the tank drivers, helicopter flyers, etc. turn on the government and exterminate them instead of the populace. Those that would pursue that sort of genocide will have people who do survive out looking for them and their families. How long before they’re found? They also don’t have that many helicopters or tanks. A quote,”..Boeing has delivered more than 2,200 Apaches to customers around the world since the aircraft entered production…”, that’s world wide. You can hide from a thermal viewer with a $3 heat blanket and a sheet sewed together. How are they going to find the targets? I think the number of tanks is only 5,500 or so. America is a really big country. They don’t have the personal and the ones they do have they can’t trust to do whatever they tell them.

      Perhaps talk to a vet who walked in Afghanistan or Iraq and ask them what an ordinary rifle can do. Even a handgun is a powerful piece of tech.

  6. Donna Demarco

    Yup that’s about right! The immediate outcry from the paid trolls and their (((leaders))) for gun control and even getting rid of the second amendment. These false flags have really ramped up and are just ridiculous but one must ask, Is the deep state fighting Trump behind them OR is Trump behind them??? Guess we will know if he dismantles the constitution further or caves to gun control..if this happens then we know he was part of it too!

  7. Ron Sanderson

    I knew I would find what I was looking for here.

  8. As always an excellent response Steve !
    But I assume like many followers of yours believe , that the shooter had a handler.
    Should we belive he couldn’t have accomplished this on his own , or could he ?
    I say he couldn’t without being activated with help to be pushed over the edge
    Yes he was nuts , was not competent enough to be successful at anything , including evil .
    So Steve , How do we prove he had a handler and go after catching them in the act ,
    and put a end to the manipulation of the general public ?


    The Florida school shooting was a deep state operation to push the gun control agenda, and as in all the previous false flags, Sandy Hook , the Boston Bombing, San Bernadino, etc., etc, the shooting was arranged to take place while a drill was going on, which is used for a cover.

    There are several videos of students where they state that more than one shooter was involved and possibly 3 shooters involved and student Alex Miednik stated that Cruz was walking down the hall with her when the shooting was taking place, so he was not the shooter, Cruz was an MKU patsy.

    In regards to Sandy Hook , the shool was closed in 2008 and in addition , FBI records show zero murders in Newtown in 2012, ie another deep state gun control operation, as were all the others.

    1. ” There are several videos of students where they state that more than one shooter was involved and possibly 3 shooters involved and student Alex Miednik stated that Cruz was walking down the hall with her when the shooting was taking place, so he was not the shooter, Cruz was an MKU patsy. ”
      Right !

      It didn’t help that his new parents let him keep a ASR-15 in a locked gun-case ether ….?
      That wasn’t such a bright idea …
      I saw all the interveiws of those students with multiple shooters . They looked legit
      Was there any positive ID of him doing any shooting ?
      Most of the victims were shot through the walls of their classrooms ?
      Was the AR-15 recovered from the scene of the shooting ?
      Will we ever see any school security video of him entering the school that day with a weapon in hand ?
      And he just walked out like a Rambo after the fact and grabbed a Coke at McDonnell’s ?
      Well Come on ! That’s a lot to believe – and some big BS to swallow …
      Mr. Psycho Rambo , he had no idea where or who he was after he did the crime ?

      1. DESERT FOX

        Just like Sandy Hook where no one died, and Adam Lanza was a totally made up person and the school was closed in 2008 and was then used in 2012 for a deep state setting for a gun control staged event with crisis actors used and then tore down the school to hide the fact that it was all faked, and now they are talking about tearing down the wing of school in Florida, ground hogs day all over again.

        1. Chia Cha

          Wait wait, I do not understand this about school opening. Who you think they did it. I am not sure it was done how you think. How can you close school, and then open it for shooting? Only what is important here is that demoncrats wants to use this for taking guns with prepared laws. We must abolish demoncratic party and put there some reformed this time anti-anti-traditionalist judeo-christian nazi party. And then kill all nazis and communists.

          1. DESERT FOX

            Do some research , look up Wolfgang Halbig, he is an expert on Sandy Hook.

  10. I’m looking for more than – ‘just any answer ? ‘ or just being labeling another False Flag ?
    He is a extremely mentally defective person , but not as decisively labeled as white nationalist
    racist as the media latched onto for a while ?
    This is a different persona here , compared to the white supremacist that shot up the Black Church ?
    I just can’t imagine that this poorly adjusted kid pulled off the whole ordeal alone for the sake of his masculinity ?
    Dr. Steve help me here. Was this kid handled ? Or did he act alone because he was ignored ?

    When will people realize, it’s not the gun, it’s whose hands are on it!!!
