The Democrats got it wrong when it comes to gun control

Updated on December 5, 2015

Part 1

In the United States we have been having mass shootings all over the country and the Democratic Party is at it again saying we need more gun control. The President will always agree with saying we need more gun control and stricter laws which really does not surprise me He has always wanted our guns. Before you go off saying I am some gun nut and you don't need an AR-15 for hunting. Well I am sorry to disappoint you but I do use my AR-15 and AR-10 for hunting, and you are wrong, and the media brain washed you to believe enough is enough we need stricter gun control and less guns. Let's look at the facts and start with California a Democratic state mind you and just had another mass shooting in there strict gun law state. In San Bernardo CA there was a mass shooting by three people which we're terrorist not of our country mind you. The great Barbara Boxer (I say with a lot of sarcasm) said that California is proof that there strict gun law and less guns work. Well there is a website you need to see that the DOJ (Department of Justice) published that will say differently that less guns will keep the crime rate low ( ) and you all need to read it please and you can see that more guns does equal to less crime. After you read what is on that site you will see that she is completely wrong that there strict gun law and less guns is not working at all. It will show that more guns owned by law abiding citizens will keep the crime rate low not a stricter gun control or people owning less guns in the state.


Gun show are a criminals dream wrong

Some of you believe at a gun show is the problem that all a gun show is a criminals super market to obtain a fire arm well that is a myth not true at all. The media and the democrats and some republicans have lied to you say that is how these criminals are getting there fire arms to cause all these crimes. A website called did a study to prove all these myth about crime and guns. They use the statistics that the BOJ (Bureau of Justice), FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigations), ATF (Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms) and the DOJ (Department of Justice) provides so you can see the media has dropped a lot of myths at us and the people we voted for are on board with it in lying to us. It is a really good piece to help and I hope who ever reads with will take the time and read all of it so you can see we are all being deceived and I stress please take the time to read it.

Part 2

As you just saw the video I posted with Democrat Boxer saying that California is proof that strict gun laws work and we need to make stricter national gun laws is what we need to do. Let’s look at the whole United States the Democrat side and the Republican side of mass shootings in the U.S. from 1976 to 2010 where over 2900 people have lost their lives in over 600 mass shootings in a 35 year period of time. Number one on that list is California a Democrat states mind you and you just heard from Boxers own mouth since 1990 they have worked to make strict gun laws and gun control so that 20 of the 35 years and why is California number one well out of 646 mass shootings in the United States California has had 85 of them. That is not including the past five years same goes for the others I am about to mention. Number two is Texas a Republican State they have had 61 that is 24 less then California and that is not a real strict gun law state. Number three is New York a Democrat state they have had 57 that is 28 less then California and New York a strict gun laws as CA. Number four is Michigan they have had 37 that is 48 less then CA and they are as well a Democratic state. Number five is Virginia a Democratic state as well and have had 24 and you can do the math on how much less they are then CA. Number six is Ohio a Democrat state and they have had 22 and at this time you are starting to see where this is going but wait there is more. Tied for number seven is Illinois, Indiana, and Louisiana with 21, where Illinois is Democratic state and Louisiana, Indiana is a Republican states. And Number ten Pennsylvania with 20 and it is also a Democrat state. All those ten states are 369 mass shootings out of 646 in 35 years as you can see that 70% of the mass shootings happen in a strict gun law Democrat states which proves that stricter gun law will not work at all. The real question is if stricter gun laws are not working why they are pulling for stricter gun laws. Well folks it is simply it is not a gun control problem they just want control so they can have a bigger government.

This is a map of 2010

Am I just attacking Democrats

As you read all this you this I am attacking the Democratic Party well I am trying not to but the history and statistics don't lie. Here are just a few to names Nidal Hasan – Ft Hood Shooter: Reg­istered Democrat and Muslim, Aaron Alexis, Navy Yard shooter – black liberal/Obama voter, Seung-Hui Cho – Virginia Tech shooter: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff, registered Democrat. James Holmes – the “Dark Knight”/Colorado shooter: Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, #Occu­py guy, progressive liberal, hated Christians, Amy Bishop, the rabid leftist, killed her colleagues in Alabama, Obama supporter, Andrew J. Stack, flew plane into IRS building in Texas – Leftist Democrat. You starting to see the pattern yet ladies and gentleman.

The Ending with a few questions

Why is it that all these mass shootings happen in Democratic states? Why are they saying we need stricter gun laws when there already strict gun laws are not working? Why is the media not doing their job and giving us the proper information but they tell us lies? If California's strict gun laws are working then why are they having all these mass shootings should its sister state Arizona the state I live be having more mass shootings and be on the top ten list?

I find it very odd that people and the democrats are blaming the NRA which I will say I am no member of, but all these strict gun law are not would and all these mass shootings are happening mainly in Democrat state where they have the strictest gun laws.

Do you really think Stricter gun laws will work?

      I don't dispute your raw numbers. What I dispute is the improper way you used them. To do a comparison between any two objects where the baseline is significantly different (like the population of Vermont vs the population of California) you have to use "rates"; raw numbers produce meaningless results. You might go back and divide all of your raw numbers by the states population and then see what you get.

      Actually, it is illegal now, thank you NRA, for the federal government to count or track guns, so the numbers must come from independent estimates.

      By the way, the reason I stuck with California rather than make a general claim is that there are only two groups of gun deaths that have high correlation between that and the rate of gun ownership. They are "total deaths" and "overall suicides" (which are a separate category from homicides), plus the subset of "suicides by firearm".

      On the other hand, there is only a weak positive correlation between the rate of gun ownership and homicides and a weak negative correlation between rate of gun ownership and robberies. There is no correlation between the other two components of violent crime, rape and aggravated assault. See and the other parts of this series.

      And you also know that the numbers of the homicide rate include suicide by gun which is a majority of the numbers in the homicide count

      i guess you didnt look at all the FBI and DIA and ATF the number that CA has more guns not less that is why the crime rate has dropped not because they have less gun and all my number are spot on by using the reports from the FBI and ATF which CA will not admit that there civilians has more fire arm to defend themselves.

      You keep looking at the Homicide by gun ratio but not the whole picture all crime rate is down in 2005 there were 160,990 hands 183,857 rifles 344,847 and gall gun. now in 2014 there gun sells 512,174 handguns 418,863 rifles 931,037 sold to the people and these numbers came from the DOJ so how is it the there less guns on there state and will a low homicide rate buy in 9 years the gun sells went up to 770,047.

      Which just right there proves that crime rate and homicide rate went down because people had more gun and not less like California said that they have to we're my statistics 101 was right all along.

      I get my information from the departments that finding how many people own guns is there job not from conspiracy nuts with weird numbers on there websites.

      Like the government and media want you to believe that criminals get there guns from gun show and mainly from the streets well i also debunked that myth as well. So i don't see how you think my number are there for your comparison because number added right dont lie.

      I have some issues with your facts:

      * "In San Bernardo CA there was a mass shooting by three people which we're terrorist not of our country mind you." - It was two people and they were Americans.

      * "California is proof that there strict gun law and less guns work" - Actually that is true. If you break rate of "homicides by firearm" down into six groups with 1 being the lowest rate and 6 being the highest, California falls into Group 2. Most states with terrible gun laws fall into Groups 5 and 6.

      * When you assert "... in the U.S. from 1976 to 2010 where over 2900 people have lost their lives in over 600 mass shootings in a 35 year period of time. Number one on ...", do you know your statistics are worthless because they aren't presented as Rates of mass shootings per million population (your side loves to misuse statistics like you did). Raw numbers don't give any basis for comparison.

      That was all of the non-repetitive assertions I could find in your hub.
