"Gun Related Deaths in the USA."

Tom's Journal.

Foreword in Polish: 

Witam przyjaciół z Polski:
Teraz dni, zawsze musimy na 2 stronach "wieści". Krajowy, podróbka aktualności "media" --- i wtedy prawdziwej, szczerej, nowości, takie jak Fox news, a Konserwatystami Talk Radio, itd. oraz Inter-Net. Właśnie tak niesamowitej, aby dowiedzieć się, ile Obama i jego nierzetelnych pracowników i stronnikami ukryć i pieśń do wszystkich obywateli USA w ciągu ostatnich 8 lat, a jak "Fake News' i liberałowie-- Przygasa [sic] próbowały "ścięgien podkolanowych" i wprowadzani w amerykańskiej opinii publicznej tych ostatnich 8 lat !!! Oczywiście istnieją również nierzetelnych, brudne, Republicans próbuje podważyć nasz dobry prezydent atutem, zbyt, odkąd był legalnie wybrani ! Cóż za straszny wstyd ! I kupie "myśleć", że Yahweh Bóg nie "widział" wszystkie złości ich.... Ha! Ano, jaka jest Reszta z nas robi, aby pomóc prawdzie sfotografował ?
Dzień Rynków Kapitałowych włączają się i wyłączają, gdy rozkoszy odwiedzą ziemię, a następnie Jezus i Aniołowie jego pochodzić będzie z powrotem do sędziego ziemi ludzkości wszystkie grzechy swoje, ukryte, a nie ukryte.
Planuję get mezczyzne nice lady przed upływem miesiąca listopada 2017 ! Tylko jeden mały, prywatny, proste.
Z serdecznymi pozdrowieniami,

Good Day,  Friends,
     After coming home from a long drive to S.E. Wisconsin, doing some shopping and visiting, we were so glad to be back home, and more comfortable..... PTL !   I had to sleep in a tiny Motel with a tiny bathroom, and a horrible bed that ruined my poor back, etc.   I never knew just how FAT I was until I saw myself in the Motel mirror, so.... back to the drawing board with less food, AGAIN.   But my Fiancé and I both got some good, new shoes for the Winter, etc.     And I was just thinking about other Americans who don't have a place to stay, sleep, and live, out in the cold !!   And this Winter, I am sure that things will get even worse !   Plus another Hurricane is coming to LA.  for a visit !  
       I found out that my Mom and other family members are sick with "Upper Respiratory" issues, right now, and also quarantined.    We didn't have much time nor energy to visit and see many people, this time down 'South.'    But Lori stopped in to "Wilson Leathers" to buy a new leather Winter coat, and also bought some White Cheddar Cheese with Blueberries in it, etc.   I wanted to spoil her a little,  but I ran out of energy for some reason, and just gave her the scenic tour of my old stomping grounds --- Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Lake Michigan.    I dislike the large cities with ungodly traffic back ups,  and crime, violence and illegal drugs.   And I will bet that most combat Veterans would rather live out in the country side,  as I do.   Peace and Quiet. 

Warm Regards,
Tom  Schuckman

Comment from a friend,  Judy:
We can shout the statistics all day long, but the fact is we still have democrats who hate this nation and our Constitution.  Diane Feinstein is a murderer just like Stephen Paddock, the shooter in Las Vegas.  But her murder history is even more devious.  She promotes and supports whole heartedly the murder of innocent American babies by the millions.  She is a murderer at heart just like the demented Stephen Paddock.  While she hasn't used a gun to murder these American citizens, she stands behind the murderers at Planned Parenthood.  Diane Feinstein and all of the demonic criminally insane murderers can scream gun control all they want, they are still MURDERERS.  They, the demonics don't sympathize with those murdered babies.  They don't scream stop the abortion.  No, they are as criminally insane as Stephen Paddock. 
Just my thoughts..........

There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. U.S. population 324,059,091 as of Wednesday, June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.0000925 of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:

• 65% of those deaths are by suicide which would never be prevented by gun laws.
• 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified.
• 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons – gun violence.
• 3% are accidental discharge deaths.

So technically, "gun violence" is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Well, first, how are those deaths spanned across the nation?

• 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago
• 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore
• 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit.
• 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years)

So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause.

This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1.

Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equally, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths.

Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault all is done by criminals and thinking that criminals will obey laws is ludicrous. That's why they are criminals.

But what about other deaths each year?

• 40,000+ die from a drug overdose–THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT!
• 36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths.
• 34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities(exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide)

Now it gets good:

• 200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors You are safer in Chicago than when you are in a hospital!

• 710,000 people die per year from heart disease. It’s time to stop the double cheeseburgers! So what is the point? If the anti-gun movement focused their attention on heart disease, even a 10% decrease in cardiac deaths would save twice the number of lives annually of all gun-related deaths (including suicide, law enforcement, etc.). A 10% reduction in medical errors would be 66% of the total gun deaths or 4 times the number of criminal homicides......Simple, easily preventable 10% reductions!

So you have to ask yourself, in the grand scheme of things, why the focus on guns? It's pretty simple: Taking away guns gives control to governments.

The founders of this nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to disarming the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace.

Thus, the second amendment was proudly and boldly included in the US. Constitution. It must be preserved at all costs.

So the next time someone tries to tell you that gun control is about saving lives, look at these facts and remember these words from Noah Webster:

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force at the command of Congress can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power."

Remember, when it comes to "gun control", the frightening word is “control", not “gun"!
