Look at the bullshit use of the metric of “Gun Death” and the smug superiority of those Aussies! Yeah, their “Gun Death” went down…but their violent crime WENT UP!
WE NEED TO BEAT ON THIS DRUM PEOPLE! The folks in the video are calling Australia’s gun control movement a “Huge Success” because their “Gun Death” went down WHILE MORE PEOPLE WHERE HURT, MAIMED, AND MURDERED! THIS IS NOT A VICTORY!!! THIS IS NOT PUBLIC SAFETY! Yet here in America more people are carrying, more people are buying guns, the most popular gun is the AR-15 pattern rifle and our murder and violent crime rate HAS BEEN DROPPING!!!
But hey, we have more GUN DEATH! So we should be ashamed of ourselves!
Seriously, we need to shake the trees on this bullshit metric! People are NOT talking about the Connecticut tragedy because children were SHOT, we’re talking about it because CHILDREN were MURDERED! And while they again double-down on the smugness about the stabbing in China on the same day. Indeed those kids will live, and I’m glad for that…but they ignore the same stories where people died in China, the Philippines, and Japan. I’m sure there are countless more, but those are just the few I can remember off the top of my head.
We cannot keep accepting this junk-term from people. WE CANNOT! America does have a fairly high “Gun Death” rate compared to many countries because we have GUNS. This doesn’t mean we are more dangerous than other countries, just because you’re more likely to be stabbed or beaten to death there. Hell we have more fatal vehicle accidents because we have more CARS, doesn’t mean we’re more dangerous than countries where automobile ownership is much lower.
Seriously, we need to get AGGRESSIVE on this, I’ve compiled the “Gun Death?” Files for just this reason. People are talking about gun control right now because this bogus stat-cooking is being used to make America look more dangerous than places that have less guns AND MORE CRIME!
People don’t care about “Gun Death”, they care about their safety, and the safety of their loved ones. This is the fundamental truth. Every time you hear somebody say “Gun Death” or cite “Gun Death” in statistic we need to POUNCE on that.
We should not be giving sanctuary to such horrible dishonesty!
Will you help me?
