And the year isn't over.


Police responded to a mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood in Pittsburgh on Saturday.


As rich, advanced and accomplished as the country might be, the U.S. has somehow not been up to the task of coping with the plague of gun violence.

How as a society [with diverse views] come to grips with violence/hate/?

There have been 47,220 gun incidents in the U.S. in 2018 — and here they all are on one map

Sue Chang-MarketWatch•October 28, 2018

As the nation comes to grips with yet another mass murder carried out by an angry, armed man, it is perhaps time to review how often Americans turn to guns to express discontent, hate and prejudice against their compatriots.

We need more armed Americans to counter the armed punks. You don't fight aggression by disarming the good guys, that's for sure.

It is obvious that there are far more gun related deaths in America than any other country. Maybe that IS because we have so many guns, and can afford them.

I would also bet that, statistically speaking, we are far less likely to ever be taken over by other country. That's a good thing.

I wish I could remember who said: 'Behind every blade of grass, there is an American with a gun'.

You don't know who does or does not have one, so act like everyone does.

A strict focus on apprehension, prosecution and punishment of perpetrators (instead of various statutory restrictions on the mechanism of injury -- AKA "gun control") is the only path to real reductions in criminal misuse of guns.

Additionally, reversing the moral bankruptcy in urban Black youth (in particular, Males aged 15 to 29) would extend the reduction.

CDC stats for 2016 gun homicides (https://webappa.cdc.gov/sasweb/ncipc/mortrate.html):

ALL GUN HOMICIDES:


ALL WHITE GUN HOMICIDES:


ALL BLACK GUN HOMICIDES:


BLACK MALES 15-29 GUN HOMICIDES:


WHITE MALE 15-29 GUN HOMICIDES:


What causes young Black males to kill each other at a rate of 79/100K?

If the entire nation experienced gun murders at the same rate as Black Males aged 15 to 29, there would be 256,692 gun homicides annually (79.44 X 3231.27513 = 256692.49).

That would be equal to 18X the present (2016) number of total gun homicides (256,692 / 14,415 = 17.80).

According to anti-2nd amendment trash it would be a whole lot of laws that only target law abiding citizens. Like a ban on semi-automatic firearms under the guise of an assault weapons ban. A ban on 10 to 30 round standard capacity magazines under the guise of a high capacity magazine ban. Excessive taxes on firearms. Demand that every firearm be registered and all sorts of other **** to turn firearm ownership and usage into a state granted privilege that only the elite get to use.
