The other day CNN amongst a trove of other LSM gun grabbing agenda pushers where touting the idiotically flawed study by a partisan gun grabbing bunch of hacks as proof that more gun laws result in fewer deaths. Of course the problem is that the study was rigged to find those preordained conclusions.
For example, the study portends to look at all 50 states but conveniently ignores the District of Columbia. That’s not a flaw, that’s by design. DC has the nations most draconian laws, and yet, the highest per capita fire arm violence rates possible, and would have by itself all but invalidated the idiotic conclusion by these hacks. Liberals keep ignoring the fact that the places with most gun violence in this nation are the ones with the most restrictive gun control laws, or making excuses for the fact this is the case. The facts prove that gun control do not reduce crime, but enhance criminal activity overall. Practically every study that says the contrary does so by focusing heavily on gun suicide and/or gun crime that reduces in deaths only, while ignoring crime statistics overall. I personally would rather put up with more of these gun deaths that the morons use as an excuse to justify disarming law abiding citizens, and consequently less crime in general, than fewer gun deaths accompanied by a drastic jump in all kinds of criminal activity and a population unable to defend itself and at the mercy of their government. Take a look at DC, NYC, LA, Chicago, and Detroit, all places with stupid gun control laws and horrible crime and murder rates. That’s the blue model in a nut shell. Its not coincidental that DC was dropped from the study, because it would by itself invalidate all the findings.
But there is more wrong with this study. It focuses to near exclusion on fatalities caused by gun suicide to reach this idiotic conclusion that more laws means fewer deaths. It is absolutely logical that with fewer gun owners we get fewer gun suicides, but that statistic is horribly misleading. First of all, people that want to off themselves will do so regardless of any laws, just like criminals are totally unperturbed by any gun laws. If guns are not available legally, criminals and people that want to commit suicide find ways around it. Criminals, as we see in DC, Detroit, NYC, LA, and Chicago, all have no problem getting firearms. And contrary to the idiotic assertion that they can only do this because the gun bans are not uniformly applied everywhere, we can point to criminal organizations in countries with complete gun bans to show that criminals will, unlike the law abiding citizens, have fire arms. Those that want to commit suicide will similarly find or use something else to do the deed. Allowing suicide numbers to be used to justify gun grabbing is a terrible thing.
There are of course quiet a few other problms with this study that was specifically set up to reach the conclusions the authors wanted from the start, but I am not going to bother with more of them after these 2 blatantly obvious ones show the study is faulty. If you really want to look at the statistics correctly and reach conclusions that are sensible, not just poltiical hackery attempts at gun grabbing, what you do is compare criminal activity, in general, in either scenario. The right statistics should look at how much crime, of all kinds, we have in societies that prevent law abiding citizens from protecting themselves, vs. crime in societies that allow self defense. And suicides should never be counted in that statistic, because the issue is crime. Focusing on gun deaths instead of crime is a mistake that favors the gun grabbers’ false argument. In the end the real motivation of the gun grabbers is a combination of fear of firearms leading to them not wanting others to have them and a want by government of a population that is easily pacified and controlled. The prototypical leftist tyrannical motives, you know.
