Skip to comments.Gunshot Demographics The ugly underbelly of the anti-gun-rights position

How "The Bad Part of Town" and failed social policies are used for sinister attacks on the right to keep and bear arms, and help justify the law enforcement world and its budgets.
While anti-rights activists speak emotionally about "gun violence""gun deaths" "human tragedy" and saving lives, what they refuse to say is this
Homicide in America has demographic, geographic, social and economic factors which, if acknowledged and openly discussed, would transform the debate, and place blame where it really belongs: on the causes and people that fuel the violence we hear about (but rarely actually see for ourselves, except on TV "news").
The real blame is hidden, because the truth is so painful. Crime is not spread across the streets of America. Crime, and crime using guns, happens in isolated areas for well known reasons the media and politicians hide from you.
But, it's useful to blame guns instead of criminals, and blame guns instead of politicians and social policies, and blame guns instead of festering pesthole neighborhoods, in the effort to disarm the public and transfer power to the government and away from the people.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Thank you, Baltimore Sun newspaper, for posting the interactive maps that define the problem clearlyat last (blue is choking, green is blunt force, red is shooting, black is stabbing, white is undetermined) :
(Excerpt) Read more at gunlaws.com ...
The graphics at the site show that almost all homicide and homicide victims are black and minorities in urban criminal ghettos.
Would it have been better if they was pushed outta winders...Little goil?
"It's not 'gun violence,' it's social violence for one tiny class of people."
Well worth checking them out.
Looks like ‘black on blue’ violence.
But I don't need a Map. I listen to the Chi PD radio calls through an online scanner, like right now (really cool website). So my map is in my head.
I listen to keep track of how my old hood has went to hell, and to check on anything going on near my MIL's house. She's still in the old hood and refuses to move. And Lord knows we've tried to talk her into it a gazillion times over the years.
Thank you, very nice find.
If it were not for America’s “diversity” we would be living in one of the most non-criminal countries in the world.
While you think about thhat think about who is committing the crimes in the other countries of the world.
Is it the same people? In many cases it is.
Heroin addicts comprise about 10% of the population of Baltimore. In the worst neighborhoods, the proportion would be much higher, and then you have to consider those addicted to crack, meth, and other substances. The kind of drug-related violence seen in Mexico already exists in our inner cities.
Blacks and Latinos make up both the largest victim class and the largest perp classes. For statistical purposes, Hispanics are counted as white. This is decieving.
Do they know that the republican party was started, to a large extent, to stop slavery? Do they know that Democrats were the majority party of the South during the civil war? That they were behind the Jim Crow laws, behind the KKK, and filibustered the 1964 civil rights act? Do they know Margaret Sanger (a socialist) pushed abortion for the sole of purpose of reducing "socially undesirable people"? Do they know that among black women since 1973 there have been at least 16 million abortions? Do they wonder why the Democrats march in lockstep to "protect abortion rights"?
I'm about as white as possible without being an albino so perhaps I'm missing something obvious to those with more melanin. When a political party has done everything they could possibly do to oppress said people, when they advocate policies that create an atmosphere that destroys the family unit in minority communities resulting deaths that dwarf all but the largest genocies in history, when all their legislation does the opposite of what they claim that it does, perhaps, just perhaps, they AREN'T YOUR ALLY.
This is sickening to write but—. If anyone wonders why the Klu Klux Klan is not to been seen today..Look at the demographics of these maps.
The work of the KLAN is being done as a self-inflicted wound. It really saddens me to say that if I remember correctly, the KLAN inspired lynchings in the state of Mississippi in the ‘30’s were LESS than the black on black murders/violence in the single city of Chicago. A SINGLE city.
What is the record of the “so-called” LEADERS of the black community? Mass murder..genocidal abortion rates..the black family destroyed..a generation (plus) of black youth uneducated...something to be proud of???????
This morning I was listening to a Baltimore ‘black’ radio station, 1010 WOLB, to a special broadcast of a portion of the convention of the National [Black] Bar Association held in Baltimore recently. It was a forum on how lawyers can help ‘their people.’
More federal money for schools
Lawyers to stand beside students who are in hearings for expulsions
More attention to the racial ‘disparity’ in suspensions/expulsion/arrests.
One audience participant asked about support for charter and magnet schools. She was told that these cannot be supported because they are an outgrowth of the private school movement that followed Brown v Bd of Ed.
I had to stop listening at this point for health reasons.
