Comparing murder rates and gun ownership across countries


The statistical sleight-of-hand gun-haters like to use is that places with high gun ownership rates have more "gun deaths."

What they won't tell you is that those places have the lowest per capita murder rates.

More guns, less murder.

Bill Whittle’s YouTube video “Number One With a Bullet” illustrates this very succinctly.

Here is a link to it.

Here are links to the three data sources that he references.

Fact is, states and countries with low gun ownership rates lead the nation and world in per capita murder rate.

They also lead the world in violent crime rate.

Gun-controlled Britain has a low homicide rate, but it has the highest violent crime rate in the EU, a violent crime rate that is higher than even South Africa, and much higher than the United States.

The only first-world nation with a higher violent crime rate than Britain is Australia, a nation that also banned and confiscated firearms, stripping its people of their ability to defend themselves from violent criminals.

So if you like high violent crime and murder rates, by all means advocate taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.

One-third of black babies are now aborted. The dream of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, to use abortion to exterminate the black race is finally coming to pass. If black lives really mattered they’d be burning abortion clinics to the ground instead of 7-Elevens.

Outsiders cannot fix what is wrong with America's indigenous urban peoples. The systemic maladies of racial separatism, anti-intellectualism, sloth, criminal behavior and perpetual victimhood must be corrected from within their own community. More welfare-reparations cannot overcome their moral and intellectual bankruptcy.

BLACK FEMALE Police Sergeant Supervised Eric Garner’s Deadly Arrest

(1) The Gentle Giant boosted a box of cigarillos used for making 
    marijuana blunts from a convenience store and shook the convenience 
    store clerk like a rag-doll.

(2) Minutes later The Gentle Giant shoved the door shut on a police
    officer as he attempted to get out of his vehicle. The Gentle Giant 
    then punched the officer and attempted to take his firearm. The 
    firearm discharged during the struggle, wounding the Gentle Giant 
    in the hand, as evidenced by blood and empty cartridges in the 
    vehicle.

(3) The Gentle Giant was high on marijuana at the time that he stole a 
    box of cigarillos, roughed up a store clerk, assaulted a police 
    officer and attempted to take his firearm, as evidenced by forensic
    blood analysis.

    Is there anything incorrect about the above statements?


The Ten Planks of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto
(and How Statists Implement Them)

  1. Abolition of private property rights (via high property taxes, restrictive zoning laws, "fair housing" edicts, environmental and "wetlands" regulations, UN Agenda 21, etc.)

  2. Institution of a heavily graduated income tax (by calling it "taxing the rich")

  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance (through a confiscatory estate tax on "the rich")

  4. Confiscation of the property of enemies of the state (through lawless application of asset forfeiture and eminent domain)

  5. Centralization of credit into the hands of the state (Federal Reserve, Federal Trade Commission, TARP, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, federal takeover of student loans, etc.)

  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation into the hands of the state (FCC, DOT, FEMA, NTSB, FAA, etc.).

  7. Consolidation and subjugation of all major industries to central government control (FDA, EPA, OSHA, ICC, HUD, NLRB, EEOC, DOE, TSA etc.)

  8. Mandatory labor union membership ("card check" to bypass employee consent, automatic withholding of union dues, forced unionization of health care workers, teachers, police, firefighters, etc.)

  9. Equitable redistribution of all wealth (TANF, SSI, EITC, SNAP, Community Reinvestment Act, etc.)

  10. Free public education (and food, housing, health care, cell phones, Internet access, etc.)

...In South Africa during the era of apartheid, white labor unions urged that a minimum wage law be applied to all races, to keep black workers from taking jobs away from white unionized workers by working for less than the union pay scale.

...Some supporters of the first federal minimum wage law in the United States — the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 — used exactly the same rationale, citing the fact that Southern construction companies, using non-union black workers, were able to come north and under-bid construction companies using unionized white labor...

...In the United States, the last year in which the black unemployment rate was lower than the white unemployment rate — 1930 — was also the last year when there was no federal minimum wage law. Inflation in the 1940s raised the pay of even unskilled workers above the minimum wage set in 1938. Economically, it was the same as if there were no minimum wage law by the late 1940s.

...In 1948 the unemployment rate of black 16-year-old and 17-year-old males was 9.4 percent. This was a fraction of what it would become in even the most prosperous years from 1958 on, as the minimum wage was raised repeatedly to keep up with inflation....


ENOUGH of the “unarmed black teenager” propaganda.

There were 726 homicides committed in 2011 alone with hands, fists and feet, and the majority of those homicides were committed by young black males.

The US Supreme Court has decided that a person is any race or gender that they wish to be.

If I as a white male decide that I am a black female, I expect the affirmative action laws to be applied to me just the same as they would be to any black female.

Anybody who disagrees is a racist homophobe who belongs in a prison cell.


“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

AGW/Climate-change is not science

Physics is science. Chemistry is science.

Climate-forecasting with computer models is soothsaying.

Climate models cannot possibly encompass all the variables involved in global climate, because they are as infinite as the universe.

We know from chaos theory that, unless your model encompasses every last variable, its predictions will diverge more and more from reality over time.

You do believe in mathematics, right? That's all chaos theory is.

You make fun of people who believe that they are not the center of the universe and that there are things that we do not and cannot know much less control, but it's a lot more insane, not to mention malignantly-narcissistic, to believe that you know everything and can control things like global climate.

I am beginning to look forward to the Islamic Caliphate and Moslem takeover of the US and institution of Sharia Law that Barack Hussein Obama is engineering.

After a few human-torchings, stonings and beheadings, "gays" are going to be longing for the good old days when the worst thing they had to worry about was some Christian baker not baking a cake for them.


Plank #3 of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto: Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

Government is the greediest, most corrupt and murderous force on Earth (governments murdered 262 million of their own citizens in the 20th century alone*), but there are those who have a religious faith in government and think that government should inherit all wealth.

Do they believe that government officials and employees are somehow intellectually and morally superior to mere peasants who don't work for the government? That somehow they will do something magical with the wealth, other than find a way to get it into their own pockets?

Those people deserve the totalitarian state that's coming.

Wealth is nothing more than unspent money kept in a financial account or invested in property or a business.

People who spend every cent they can get their hands on the minute they get their hands on it will never have wealth no mater how much of other peoples' money you steal and give to them.


30 US jurisdictional studies have shown 91% of US murder victims are themselves criminals. Over 80% with felony or five or more arrests.

For one of the studies google: criminals target criminals trend shows usatoday In fact if you are not a felon or prior criminal, you and your household members are 25% safer if you own a gun than equal demographic unarmed homes. Indeed your risk of being murdered in the US, if you are not a felon, gang ember or prior criminal is 20% LESS than the developed nation mean.
