Results of being Disarmed

The Antis Always talk about wanting to have less “Gun Death” in the world. Well what are the consequences of that?

A Queens man died trying to save his little brother from a group of knife-wielding thugs – his efforts leading to his fatal stabbing.

Dario Paiva, 27, raced to his brother Khristian’s side after the younger man was beset by four attackers near the 85th Street-Forest Parkway J-train station.

The Woodhaven man was fatally stabbed around 11:30 p.m. after confronting his brother’s attackers on the subway platform.

The attackers didn’t have a gun, but neither did the defenders, and the good guys lost. NYC also has very strict Knife Laws. This does count as a “Knife Death”, tho no Anti-rights advocate will mention that term for fear his welcome will dry up, but this was not a “Gun Death”, and its a good story to them because they only care when people are shot.

    I always liked this quote by Daniel Polsby:

    Though it is a long step between being disarmed and being murdered – one does not usually lead to the other – but it is nevertheless an arresting reality that not one of the principal genocides of the twentieth century, and there have been dozens, has been inflicted on a population that was armed.

    The same concept applies on the smaller scale, all the way down to individual people – being disarmed by the force of law will not automatically mean you will be murdered, but it is astonishing how many violent deaths are perpetrated on those who cannot fight back (most notably in “gun-free” zones).

    Well, astonishing until you apply the simple rationale of a predator – only attack the weakest, or those who cannot fight back…
