Terror Hits Home: The Oklahoma City Bombing
The human toll was still more devastating:
168 souls lost, including 19 children,
with several hundred more injured.

On September 11, 2001, 19 militants
associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four
airliners and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United
States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade
Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside
Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in
Pennsylvania. Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted in
extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to
combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. Over
3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and
Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and
firefighters.

Do you think banning guns will stop murders or will they just become much more creative?

If guns are banned do you really think if someone wants someone dead they won't find a way to do it.

    HARVARD STUDY ... see link at end.

    Nations with stringent anti-gun laws generally have substantially higher murder rates than those that do not. The study found that the nine European nations with the lowest rates of gun ownership (5,000 or fewer guns per 100,000 population) have a combined murder rate three times higher than that of the nine nations with the highest rates of gun ownership (at least 15,000 guns per 100,000 population).



    For example, Norway has the highest rate of gun ownership in Western Europe, yet possesses the lowest murder rate. In contrast, Holland's murder rate is nearly the worst, despite having the lowest gun ownership rate in Western Europe. Sweden and Denmark are two more examples of nations with high murder rates but few guns. As the study's authors write in the report:



    If the mantra "more guns equal more death and fewer guns equal less death" were true, broad cross-national comparisons should show that nations with higher gun ownership per capita consistently have more death. Nations with higher gun ownership rates, however, do not have higher murder or suicide rates than those with lower gun ownership. Indeed many high gun ownership nations have much lower murder rates. (p. 661)

    Finally, and as if to prove the bumper sticker correct - that "gun don't kill people, people do" - the study also shows that Russia's murder rate is four times higher than the U.S. and more than 20 times higher than Norway. This, in a country that practically eradicated private gun ownership over the course of decades of totalitarian rule and police state methods of suppression. Needless to say, very few Russian murders involve guns.



    The important thing to keep in mind is not the rate of deaths by gun - a statistic that anti-gun advocates are quick to recite - but the overall murder rate, regardless of means. The criminologists explain:



    [P]er capita murder overall is only half as frequent in the United States as in several other nations where gun murder is rarer, but murder by strangling, stabbing, or beating is much more frequent. (p. 663 - emphases in original)

    People have been killing each other many years before the gun ever existed. Look back to the days of when the Romans ruled, there was more murder, rape and every other crime than there is today. The people today might seem so crazy and full of hatred, but were a bunch of saints compared to the way we use to be, a couple of thousand years ago.

    To the progressives with this idiotical excuse at the founding of our nation and the writing of constitutions in the states like the firearm clauses that were enacted had anything to do with hunting. It's the right to self defence for EVERY AMERICAN. See we are being duked "BRAINWASHED." right now by a 1% ruling class portion of a political party that currently controls the house and the senate that want powers over our Bill Of Rights. Ignoring the fact that you have gun rights too. Ask yourself this, if you are black, and a klan member breaks into your home, do you want a phone, or a firearm? If you are a woman with children, and a rapist is in your home, do you want a phone, or a firearm? If you are gay and a bunch of drunk gay haters are following you to do you harm, do you want a phone, or a firearm? Now after we are disarmed, do you really think the government is going to stop there? Nope, they will go after other rights as well, so you better wake up, sooner or later you may really have something to whine, and cry about libs.
