Giving Up Your Guns Will Lessen Violent Crime

That's what governments always say when they take away (or try to take away) their citizens guns. This is what has happened since Australians were disarmed by their govt.

Never, ever give up your guns. EVER.

The police will keep us safe... from pen waving cripples: http://news.yahoo.com/houston-officer-kills-double-amputee-w...

With noble souls like these police officers, who needs guns right?

You don't have to use an example so far away

just look at our neighbors to the south. Mexico has some of the strictest gun laws and the country is run my drug kingpins. Brick layers getting beheaded, dumping bodies over major intersections like nothing...the disgusting list of violence goes on and on. You type mexico violence in google and stories of this type will pop up by the multitudes for the last few days. Gun control, and prohibition in general, only hurts the law-abiding citizens.

When guns are outlawed,

Only outlaws will have guns.

And by outlaws, I include law makers.

Good point!

Good point!

Two sites with astonishing

Two sites with astonishing information about an armed citizenry and prevalence of violent crime. The second link is a bit of a doozy, showing how armed citizens are far less likely to shoot innocent bystanders than the police - showing that the armed citizenry is not only far more effective in preventing crime, but far more accurate and safe as well.

Police deter and punish crime - armed citizens prevent crime. That is the unambiguous fact of the matter. Hope the below links will be helpful:

Keep the guns, "confiscate" the politicians

The 1973 Edition of the Guinness Book of World records. Category - Crime and Punishment, Greatest Mass Killings.

Lists:
China - 26.3 million Chinese killed during the regime of Mao Tse-tung.

USSR - 8-10 million victims during the great purge.

Nazi Germany - 4-6 million killed

It is my understanding that in each of these that gun registrations and/or gun owner registrations were used by the state to systematically disarm the populous, not all at once less the people rise up and defend themselves. Instead one group or neighborhood at a time.

An unarmed populous is a herd waiting for the slaughter. All they have left is standing in front of a tank and hoping the guy driving has a conscience. Good luck with that!!

Giving up guns to prevent crime is a falsehood

perpetrated by governments for the real purpose of maintaining a monopoly of force over its citizens serfs.

Even the most fanatical anti-gunner still supports armed police and military to maintain the power for the state and its edicts.

Ever notice how those who promote gun control are usually well off enough to have their own personal security and live in gated communities? And how anti-gunners seldom, if ever, are hard-core anti-war?!?!?

But aren't the robbers, rapists and burglers

Less violent in their day to day predatory activity if the victims are unarmed?

Perpetrators are much less active active after such encounters.

Perhaps not active at all, afterwords.

I'm thinking Darwin had a theory about that

.

Indeed. Darwin struck a cord w/ my animal philosophy.

Darwin Played a Central Role in Twain’s Animal Philosophy

Animals were central to my views about how to view people.

Fishkin wrote about me in a scholarly way (best as could be done). She researched. “I had not realized when I embarked on this project that Twain was the most prominent American of his era to throw his weight behind the animal welfare movement.”

Mark Twain, in his groundbreaking publication, The Descent of Man (1871), a book that “startled the world,” as Twain put it... was greatly influenced by Charles Darwin writings.

Darwin’s observations resonated with Twain’s personal observations, as several texts in the books show. A number of Twain’s works show that Twain believed that even if animals could not speak, they could still think and communicate, as well as feel.

Twain refused to place humans at the apex of creation, however. On the contrary, Twain classified humans as “the lowest animal.” “Man is the animal that blushes,” Twain once said. “He is the only that does it—or has occasion to.”

Giving up victom-less crimes will eliminate crimes.

Imagine a world that had no such law.

Yep

Police are only needed for one job in a free society: To apprehend an individual that has infringed upon another individuals life, liberty, or property.

Over 80% of arrests in this country are for individuals that have harmed no one...which makes the useless taxfeeder pigs the biggest criminals of them all.

Which is why we dont have a free society; at least not in any relation to the one given us.
