FIREARMS MURDERS AND CIVILIAN GUN OWNERSHIP

Mexico

15,500,000 civilian firearms – 15 for every 100 people

Ranked 42 in the world for civilian gun ownership

In the latest year, there were 11,309 homicides by firearm – 9.97 per 100,000 population. 54.9% of all homicides are by firearm

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

United States

270,000,000 civilian firearms – 88.8 for every 100 people

Ranked 1 in the world for civilian gun ownership

In the latest year, there were 9,146 homicides by firearm – 2.97 per 100,000 population. 60% of all homicides are by firearms

!snip!

So, let’s have a conversation about race.

I would be very interested in seeing a chart with the removal of all Obama voters from the statistics. I submit to you that the United States would be among the most non-violent fully armed countries per capita.

While the media focuses on the rogue deranged nutbags of the world, progressive policies that have produced a generation of stupid, mindless drunken, drug-addled, fatherless thugs gets a free pass. And any conservative minority will tell you the same thing.

No. It’s progressivism that is the root of all evil.

    I’m pretty sure 2010 census had population somewhere around 330,000,000 or .81 firearms per citizen.

    I looked up the census data, there’s only 308,745,538 residents and considering the fact I don’t own any guns, there’s only 269,999,986 guns in the US.

    269,999,986 / 308,745,538 = .87 guns per US citizen.

    We totally rule Mexico!

    The libs own this massacre. The perp is always one of the deranged nut cases that they coddle. The population of our mental institutions has declined by 90% in the last fifty years, thanks to liberal policies started in the sixties. The snowball keeps rolling down the hill, and the dummies act shocked by the collateral damage caused by their lax treatment of the mentally ill.

    Of the probably hundreds of gun owners I have know and hunted with, shot with at the range or in the desert, or hand loaded ammo for, 100% of them have NEVER attacked anybody, robbed or raped anybody, or committed any other crime with the use of any type of firearm. And as far as I know and truly believe, none of them would ever consider voting for an Anti-American socialist/Marxist/communist/moslem son of a bitch like 0bama.

    Crimes are committed by criminals. The “D” party progressives are criminals. Pretty sure that is a requirement to get elected now.

    I quickly scanned the laws gun laws of both CT and NJ. and found that CT does not recognize NJ gun laws.

    CT states that no one under 21 shall possess a handgun and “assault” weapons is a no-no unless purchased there before 1994.

    That means that this kid was a lawbreaker before his rampage.

    How will anymore restrictive laws stop some lunatic from doing this again?

    These progressive feminized twits are the ones who will cower in the corners while sending out real men and women to fight off these monsters with a whistle and a stick.

    I had this same conversation with my mom (she is an absolute lib, but may be changing) and under the banner of progressivism/liberalism there needs to be special emphasis on the major media and entertainment industry. The crap that comes from these anti-americans should be cause for outrage. I can’t believe the violence that is in movies, tv shows, and video games. Instead of outlawing guns we need to outlaw liberalism! I could go on and on but someone has to cook dinner.

    Brazil appears to win total # with nearly 35,000.
    Look at India, with 46 million firearms and a pretty low 0.26 firearm homicides per 100k.
    And Switzerland, 3rd in ownership and a homicide rate about 1/4 that of the US – and of course a very different society.
    Iceland is 15th in ownership, zero homicides in a small country.

    2011 Global study on homicide (defined as intentional/murder) is interesting http://www.unodc.org/documents/data-and-analysis/statistics/Homicide/Globa_study_on_homicide_2011_web.pdf (pdf file). My sister just moved to Guatemala – one of the top countries for homicides!

    grayscape, it’s actually a play on numbers. At first I noticed the 7/10ths, but when you really get down to it, not “everyone” has a gun.

    What sounds better? 88 guns per 100 people or .88 guns for every person?

    The same media (television and movies) that’s calling for gun bans produces the very product that has created the gun culture. They are dependent on ratings created by a providing us with a non-stop diet of sex and violence.

    Now tell me that has no effect on anyone. Tell me it doesn’t affect children. Tell me that people with mental problems aren’t influenced by television.

    A gun may be the weapon of death but the media is the responsible party.

    Promoting abortion, with the natural consequence of cheapening life: liberal agenda item.

    Attacking religion, with the attendant loosening of any moral compass: liberal agenda item.

    Attacking the traditional family: liberal agenda item.

    Denigrating basic patriotism in the United States: liberal agenda item.

    Denigrating work and being a productive member of society: liberal agenda item.

    Selective enforcement of laws to promote political policy: liberal agenda item.

    Promoting complete reliance of government for the provision of all of a person’s needs: liberal agenda item.

    Eliminating personal responsibility for anything: liberal agenda item.

    Nope, I don’t see a problem here. Must be the guns.

    Interesting. A quick scan of the worldwide homicide statistics indicates that the countries with the lowest rates are all the ones who’s citizens we won’t let emigrate here anymore, while the most violent countries are now the most favored ones, immigration-wise. Gee thanks Ted Kennedy!

    An “assault” weapon, by libtard standards, is one that has been used in an assault. So pretty much everything from squirt guns to phasers is included.

    @old_oaks -

    that’s why I put assault in quotations….I have know idea what those websites, laws, or states consider what is an assault weapon.

    I consider any gun,knife,brick, stick,rock, etc. used in an unmitigated attack upon myself, my family, my neighbors, my cats, my home, my car, my bank,my convenience store,my grocery store,my street, etc. as an assault weapon and will respond with my defensive weapons of choice.

    Today, in 117,181,000 gun owning households in the USA (except a few in Chicago), NO ONE WAS KILLED!!! Yet, because a spoiled, unbalanced, coddled little twerp committed unspeakable acts in Newtown, CT yesterday, we are once again subjected to the Lib-dork’s loser arguments against guns.

    Assaults by lunatics, madmen, thugs, hoodlums and pukes, bent on evil, using a gun are only stopped by a firearm, either in their own hands (suicide) or a bystander with ready access to their own piece (and not always the police who usually get there long AFTER the shooting stops).

    More laws mean absolutely nothing to those bent on destruction, and taking away the rights of millions of law abiding citizens because of one sick little bastard, is twisted and deranged thinking, period. Oh, wait. We are dealing with Lefties….

    The anti-gunners in Calif. proved a while back that a firearm only has to look “scary” to a few liberal freedom-haters in order to give it “assault weapon” status. A 10-22 Ruger with a large detachable magazine looks scary to them and you can bet they will try to grab it at every opportunity. Folding stocks, flash suppressors, “big metal looking bullets”, you name it — they hate it.

    The “US Statiscial Survery” for the past several decades has shown that subtracting black crime the USA is the most peaceful country in europe & America.

    The survey also shows that without blacks the live birth rate is very high.

    Now I understand that conservative households more then likely will have more then one gun but I have to wonder how many Dem/lib households who bitch and complain about guns actually have at least one for protection and keep quiet about it. I’ll bet the number would surprise. I mean, we’re talking about people who complain the rich don’t pay enough in taxes then quietly seek out the best tax dodges for their own dough.

    Must be the guns, but everyone of these twisted asswipes committed mass murder crimes in gunfree zones.
    Columbine, Auroroa, Virginia tech, Peducah kentucky.
    Just like the majority of crime is committed in gun free cities.

    When was the last time you heard of a republican or right winger committing a mass murder at an NRA convention, gun show, or shooting range…….never.

    All you’ll hear is crickets from the left wing Goebbel media, nor will they even bring that up.

    I bet you could apply that “factor” to just about anything and get a surprising result:
    - school grades testing
    - abortion rates
    - single parent households
    - childhood behavior problems
    etc. etc.
