Reality Check: Let The Facts Guide The Gun Control Debate Video

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By now the whole country is fully embroiled in the Gun Control debate, spurred by the grisly murder of 27 people, mostly kids, at the Sandy Hook Elementary school last Friday.

We have pushed God and morality out of our schools and out of public life. Is it any wonder that they are so screwed up?  We have raised up a generation of young people without teaching them moral values, and now we are experiencing the bitter fruit of our foolishness.

But instead of focusing on what is really causing all of this, the mainstream media seems absolutely obsessed with the idea that more gun control laws would solve our problems.

Spread this video to every forum, twitter reply and stream you can find. Let’s bring in these emotional leftist and introduce them to some facts.

Adam Lanza broke at least three Connecticut gun control laws.  Would adding a bunch more really make a difference?

Use the city of Chicago for example.

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the entire nation.  The intent was to greatly reduce gun crime in the city.  But instead, Chicago is now being called “the deadliest global city“, and the murder rate is running about 25 percent higher than last year.

How does this compare to other areas of the world?

Down in Australia, gun murders rose by about 19 percent and armed robberies rose by about 69 percent after a gun ban was instituted.

The UK has some of the strictest gun laws on the planet.  So how has that worked out?  Well, gun crime in England and Wales rose by 89 percent over the course of a decade…

The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year  -  a rise of 89 per cent.

Banning guns is not going to solve anything.  The criminals are always going to be able to get guns.  But banning guns will take them away from hard working American citizens that just want to have a chance to defend themselves as our society crumbles all around us.

Are you ready for some more statistics?  The following is from an article by my friend J. Vanne in which he detailed how guns have helped to reduce crime in many areas of the United States…

As a matter of fact, Gun Owners of America, cites statistics indicating guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense, or around 80 times a day (other statistics estimate this number could range as low as 1.5 million, but either number is a lot!). This includes 200,000 women a year using guns to defend themselves against sexual abuse. As a matter of fact, as of 2008, armed citizens killed more violent bad guys than the police (1,527 vs. 606).

It appears George Washington had it right, when he said “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.”

What about concealed carry?

Statistics from the recent past show states that passed concealed carry reduced their murder rate by 8.5%, rapes by 5% and robbery by 3%. Florida, which passed concealed carry in 1987, saw its higher than average homicide rate drop 52% during the following 15 years after passage, to below the national average.

But if you listen to the mainstream media, the only solution to this crisis is more gun control laws.

As if psychos that somehow are not able to obtain a gun cannot find other ways to attack people.  For example, just the other day a very sick Chinese man with a knife attacked 22 children at a school in China.

So should we ban all knives too?

One thing that the mainstream media is not talking about is the role that pharmaceutical drugs have played in almost every single mass murder in the United States in recent years.  The following is from a recent Natural News article

In mass shootings involving guns and mind-altering medications, politicians immediately seek to blame guns but never the medication. Nearly every mass shooting that has taken place in America over the last two decades has a link to psychiatric medication, and it appears today’s tragic event is headed in the same direction.

According to ABC News, Adam Lanza, the alleged shooter, has been labeled as having “mental illness” and a “personality disorder.” These are precisely the words typically heard in a person who is being “treated” with mind-altering psychiatric drugs.

One of the most common side effects of psychiatric drugs is violent outbursts and thoughts of suicide.

And guess what?

New York Magazine wrote a piece about shooter Adam Lanza. Inside the piece though they report Adam Lanza’s uncle said the boy was prescribed Fanapt, a controversial anti-psychotic medicine.

According to the Washington Post, one neighbor is telling the press that Adam Lanza was “on medication”.

But of course the mainstream media will never call for a ban on mind-altering pharmaceutical drugs.  The companies that produce those drugs spend billions of dollars to advertise on their networks.

And as horrific as this crisis was, let us not be blind to what is happening all around us every day.

Adam Lanza murdered 20 children in cold blood and that was a crime for which there are not words strong enough to denounce it.

However, more than 100 times as many children are killed in the abortion clinics of America every-single-day, and most of our politicians stand up and publicly defend the slaughter of those innocents.

We have covered America with the blood of our own children, now we get to sufer the consequence. The problem is much larger than firearm ownership.
