Fact: Gun Control
Allows Crime To Rise!
Gun Ownership Proven To Deter Crime And
Tim Watts - 122012 UPDATED 12/25
The tragedy of the Sandy Hook
mass murders is indeed a black event for US history. The
senseless murder of innocent children is one of the most
aberrant crimes that a society can face. As a result, the US
Congress and President Obama are attempting to add a duality
to the mayhem by bringing about a ban on guns in the US. The
media is gleefully going along with it, with most of them
perpetuating the myth that guns makes us unsafe.
Nothing could be
further from the truth.
Once again the corporate
mainstream media is tragically remiss in its reporting. If
only they would do their jobs, they might uncover some
basic, easy to find facts as to the true statistics about
guns in America.
First off, let's get something
violent crime and gun violence have been declining in the
United States, for twenty years now,
even as gun ownership has risen during that time.
The biggest topper, the murder rate
has dropped well over 60 percent! As a matter of
the New York Times reported in 2011 that violent crimes was
at a 40 year low.
Murders by gun are down for the 5th
These are astounding figures
that our media fails to report.

Secondly, gun control does NOT
stop violence, It is a fact that a complicit US media knows
all too well, yet refuses to report. If you want the facts,
look to Ireland, a country of roughly 4-million people, but
with crime statistics that, per capita, rival those of the
US. One can also
look no further than our cousins across the pond, to the
UK, where guns have already been wrested from the English
violent crimes continue to rise dramatically.
Professor John R. Lott, who was
interviewed on CNN after the Newtown massacre, "Every
place in the world that we have crime data, both before and
after a gun ban has gone into effect, every single place has
seen an increase in murders after the ban has been put in
place. And many times it's been a several-fold or more
increase. And there's a simple reason for that, and that is,
when you ban guns, it's basically the most-law-abiding
citizens who turn in their guns, not the criminals. And
rather than making it more difficult for criminals to commit
crime, you actually make it easier."
Professor Lott has also offered
this key statistic, which the mainstream media has totally
just one exception, every public mass shooting in the USA
since at least 1950 has taken place where citizens are
banned from carrying guns." The killers pick
spots with no gun defense.
There are hard facts that
prove the case that gun control does NOT deter violent
crime. A good case in point would be the Chinese knife
attacks which happened on the same day as the Newtown
shootings. Guns are banned in China, so as a result, knife
attacks are now on the rise. (Pistols and revolvers are
allowed for hunting, but only with government permission.)
This in itself is not a
surprise, since a
University of Chicago study from 1968 points out that a
killer will seek any weapon available to carry out their
crime. This well documented study found that
motivated to kill will find a weapon, regardless. To quote
the study, "Gun control laws would have no effect if the
only intent of killers were to kill." The criminally
insane will always find a weapon to carry out their crimes.
Ask yourself why the US media
refuses to talk about any of these facts.
They have also seen fit to
totally ignore the
China knife attacks, also directed at innocent young
school children, which took place the same day as the
Sandy Hook murders.
You might also inquire why they
don't highlight the Clackamas Town Center mall, near
Portland, Oregon, where
a registered gun owner was able to successfully stop a
shooting rampage by
drawing his concealed gun on the attacker.
The press might also look into
San Antonio shooting where an off duty deputy was also
stop another mass murder by shooting the assailant
There is also the case of a
policeman who was pinned down behind his car by a crazed man
with a rifle,
yet an armed citizen came out of his home and shot the
madman from over 165 yards with his pistol, dropping him
with four shots.
The point here is obvious... an
armed citizenry poses a threat to criminals. Taking our guns
robs us of our ability to do that.
The other glaring point to note
is that the mainstream corporate media refuses to highlight
these stories of success, instead choosing to fan the flames
of fear, participating in the disinformation, that we need
gun control to stop violence in America.
Another question might be, if
the Obama administration is so eager to stop gun violence,
why were they so negligent in their investigation of the
Fast & Furious program, which dumped thousands of guns into
Mexico, eventually killing some of our own US border agents?
Ask yourself why the
Department of Homeland Security and other Federal agencies
have purchased over 1.5 BILLIONS rounds of hollow point
ammunition. This is strictly prohibited by the Geneva
convention for use in warfare. So why is our government
stockpiling ammo that is illegal for warfare? The answer is
because it is for domestic use. That's over five rounds for
every single American citizen.
In case you missed it... DHS
said this purchase was for target practice. Any gun owner
will tell you that expensive hollow points are not used for
target practice. You always use less expensive
standard rounds to waste on target practice.
And we're supposed to give up
our guns NOW?
Seems to this writer that now is
the time we should be hanging on to our guns, more than ever
before. Our forefathers would be saying the same, because it
very much appears that our government has a malicious intent
As far as the President and our
politicians go, where was their fervent political will
before the November elections, after the Aurora theater mass
shootings, and the Oregon shootings, etc, etc, etc?
The answer is, they had no
political inclination to deny gun rights, not until they
secured their own elections. The cowardice of this knee-jerk
new found morality is galling to say the least. Again, no
political will to do this until after their own re-election.
Only now do they have the gumption.
The most glaring counter to gun
control seems to have been missed entirely by the mainstream
corporate media... Connecticut has some of the toughest
gun laws in the United States, and yet this tragedy still
The media has been nothing but a
mouthpiece for the authorities on this matter. No one is
investigating the second shooter angle, because the
authorities said it was nothing. In the old days of
journalism, the press would have dug into the facts, to find
out for themselves. Now they just accept the official
narrative. The corporate media has done nothing but help
foment the fear by railing over the horrors of gun
ownership. They have literally fanned the flames for the
attack on our Constitutional right to bear arms, without
even understanding what the 2nd amendment was intended for,
to protect ourselves from our own government if it ever went
Sadly, we have reached that
point in this country, with a government taken over by the
heavily moneyed interests; a government that has now been
turned against us.
According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Report, murder by gun
was down for the fifth straight year in a row! Out of 12,644
gun murders, only 323 were by long rifle. Hand guns
far exceeded this with 6,220 deaths.
So why are they trying to ban long rifles? Because they are
the real threat to a growing police state in a globalist
takeover of the US.
What the media is tragically
missing is all of the evidence that supports the case for
gun ownership, that guns have been
used in many more cases to save people than kill them.
They have also been irresponsibly remiss in pointing out
many school shootings were stopped by registered gun owners.
The media complicity in all of this is quite glaring and
most disappointing, once again highlighting their role in
the continued attack on the citizens of the United States.
While we're at it, let's clear
the air on one huge media fallacy... that semi-automatic
weapons are "assault weapons." That's not true. Only
automatic weapons are classified as true assault weapons,
but that's obviously not the message that the media wants to
drive home for their false narrative on gun violence. This
is just more evidence that the media is pushing a carefully
Another issue that the
lame-stream media has been totally irresponsible towards is
the glaring connection with
SSRI drugs that has been undeniably linked to most of
the mass murder shootings in the US, yet not one peep from
the corporate owned media on this damning indictment of Big
Pharma. So much for the facts.
So, let's talk about a gun ban, shall we?
Instead of going to the extreme
and banning all guns, you would think that any politician
with half a brain, and there are lots of them that qualify
in that department, if they would start with first things
first and begin instead with gun ownership by those mentally
challenged, or gun ownership among households with persons
who are mentally unstable, then that would be a reasonable
start. That should be the first recourse, rather than taking
the extreme, as our politicians have done with their
on terror." Rather than move cautiously with care,
the new norm is to take everything at once, with no regard
for for any of our Constitutional rights.
How about this for a solution...
make these alleged "assault weapons" illegal for everyone,
across the board, citizens and police. The immediate
argument that you will get is that the police will be
outgunned by the criminals. If you don't catch the obvious
hypocrisy in that answer, let me spell it out... the
criminals will still have the weapons and John and Jane Q.
Public will not.
So where is the reason in that?
Those countries that have banned
guns have only seen crime rise, because the criminals can
now act with impunity, with no second thought to
encountering any resistance from their prey. The public
becomes innocent lambs, just waiting for the slaughter.
So, with the already previously
mentioned twenty year decline in violent crime, you have to
ask yourself, why is there such a recent up-tick in
Perhaps there were some who are
afraid of the false "end of the world" claims, brought on by
the end of the Mayan calendar. Other than that, one is
really hard pressed to wonder as to what would suddenly
cause mass shootings in Wisconsin, Colorado, and now
Connecticut. It's as if someone turned a switch on and said,
let's go. It's just very unusual when activity like
this happens suddenly, in a short period of time.
Many have asked this same
question, with some pointing the finger at CIA programs to
push an agenda, using dark methods such as
MKULTRA, or utilizing hidden technology, such as
SSSS. (More on this topic at the bottom of the page.)
Others counter with the question, "But why would any
government do such a thing?"
Like it or not, there are hidden powers within this world
who are working to take guns away from the US citizenry. These
are the dark overlords who cowardly sit behind our elected
officials, pulling the strings for their own selfish agenda, a
new world order, to be run by them.
forces realize that the US stands in its way, because its
populace is so well armed. It is no accident, that the US is
heavily armed. It was a right given to us by our
forefathers through the 2nd amendment. Our forefathers
understood the importance of having its citizens ready to
act as a militia, to fight back against a tyrannical
government, as our forefathers did when they fled England.
They knew all too well that governments eventually become
oppressive, and without guns, the citizenry has no chance to
stand up for themselves.
So how does an outside force
take away this necessary deterrent for tyranny? They do it
by working within, to change the laws, making it illegal to
own guns. They accomplish this through an age old principle,
the Hegelian Dialect.
First, you create adversity. A
situation dire to the populace. Next, you wait for the
public outcry, taking note of the public's emotion and fear.
The topper is then to propose your own remedy to the
problem, one that benefits you specifically, even though it
is an unpopular solution, one that would never be accepted
by the people under normal conditions. The key component to
such a plan is to instill fear, then capitalize on the
emotion. It is a tactic that has been used many, many times
by governments the world over that wish to oppress and
exploit its citizens.
One thing is clear... there is a
concerted agenda to disarm the US population, as they did to
the citizens of the UK. As with 9/11, our politicians, who
had no political will before the elections, and now seek to
steal our 1st amendment right to defend ourselves, are
working feverishly to exploit the emotion that has been
stirred by a complicit US corporate media.
The facts are clear here, gun
ownership DOES quell crime.
Another fact is also clear, our
national corporate media is irresponsible, and our
politicians are up to the same tactics they used after 9/11,
to propose an unpopular solution to a problem that is not as
widespread as these two forces would have you believe.
This is about making the US
vulnerable, to weaken it's defensive ability. Nothing more
and nothing less. Don't be fooled by our politicians and the
We will not give up our guns. At
least not without the fight that our forefathers intended
