Skip to comments.Global gun control report relied on deceptive statistics
Posted on 10/10/2011 11:31:33 PM PDT by Watchdog85
The anti-gun media latched onto the figure the GBAV authors conjured up740,000 global deaths per year from armed violenceand ran with it.
The report was intended to exaggerate the deaths associated with weapons, and create public hysteria. The scam was easy to seeif only one would actually read the report.
Thats hardly surprising for those who follow the standard practice among gungrabbers to rely on lies, damn lies and statistics in order to bamboozle the ignorant into accepting their own disarmament. Recall the 90% lie exploited to blame U.S. gun laws for Mexican cartel violencea figure some evidently thought needed artificial boosting by way of Project Gunwalker. And its hardly surprising that an elite press that is overwhelmingly hostile to the right to keep and bear arms would welcome such deception, and repeat it wholesale without critical analysis.
200,000 fake numbers were added into the total of 740,000 violent deaths27 percent!and uncritically accepted as gospel by the media and anti-gun groups.
Isnt it interesting that citizen disarmament advocates consistently resort to lying to you in order to persuade you that governments alone must be entrusted with a monopoly of violence? How can they possibly have your welfare as a free and sovereign individual in mind?

740,000 gun-related deaths?
OK. How many people were killed with knives or strangled to death? I’m sure it is far more than 740k, so why don’t we ban knives and hands? Or better yet, why not just eradicate Islam? That should save a few million lives every year.
I really hate it when FR crams my sentences together like that!
No edit function here.
If you are threatening the life of the POTUS, our first Muslim President, that is a crime. /sarc
liberally in replies--
-—use the carrot shaped brackets (above the comma and period) with a lower case “p”—(it dissapears and makes a paragraph—
(They must look at the Occupiers doing the Marxist Echo Chant and think, "cool it you guys! Not yet! You're blowing our cover.")
Yes, but their plans did not work out how they wanted. Now they have a hard choice (Go all in) or sneak away into the cracks to live another day like the roaches they are.
Do you mean to tell us that you can't use the FR Editor to type
-- then COPY it and PASTE it wherever you want a paragraph break?
What are you browsing with -- an "Etch-A-Sketch"?
AMPERSANDlt; p AMPERSANDgt; (without spaces and using "&" in place of "AMPERSAND". (BTW, the "P/p" is not case sensitive - either will do.)
(Wonder what happened to FR's "HTML Boot Camp" thread. I haven't been able to find it lately...) It used to be a great place to get help with HTML stuff like this -- and a great place to practice coding -- without messing up on a "real" thread...
-—thanks—to keep it simple , I almost never go past italics and paragraphs-—
Like this new paragraph I just made. Or this Bold Type or this BIG FONT, or a 'Tab and new paragraph' function called 'Blockquote'. It looks like....
These words here. And for Italics you use another HTML command.Maybe you need a side trip to the FR HTML Sandbox for practice. We all need it at first so it's not Degrading or anything like that.
HTML Sandbox 2010 "SERIES", no offense meant, give it a try.
But that's all hypothetical for now. I lost all my guns in a 'tragic' boating accident. And besides losing all my guns, all my ammo and extensive knife collection went down too.
see, when I say 'tragic', I mean it ;-)
FR claims that it displays what was typed, unless it “Detects” HTML.
I did not intentionally use any HTML, so expected to see just what I typed.
If you note the hour, it was late, I apparently missed an invisible HTML tag, mea culpa, I will go hang myself now for the shame.
Just type your reply as you would a normal composition with paragraphs, etc. But, DO NOT use any HTML code in your paragraph and your spaces will hold. If you need to use HTML because you are including a link, or some other reason, then you need to separate your paragraphs with the pragraph sign which is just a p surrounded with brackets < > and no spaces between the brackets and the p, i.e. < p>. I have to make a space there where it shouldn’t be so that you can see the figures. In real life, there are no spaces.
