Let’s have the “gun-free” debate…shall we?

Since it seems that we have to continually have this “gun violence” debate…let’s have it. When I grew up almost EVERYONE had a gun in their car or their truck YET there was rarely ever a mass shooting.

What changed? Society changed when we gave up God. Secondly, in almost ALL Cases of mass shootings what is the common denominator? They are ALMOST ALWAYS in gun-free zones.

It’s easy to say take away guns but all we do then is have a citizenry that is not able to defend themselves against tyrannical governments (ask ANY society that has done this and their govt does what they WANT to them).

Lastly, is there ANY evidence that mass killings will not stop if guns are taken away? Criminals will still find ways to kill people.

We have had incidents in gun-free zones where people have simply used other means to kill people and they will continue to do so.

Below shows how ludicrous the argument is because people are killed with “things” every day and the media only sensationalizes gun violence:

(Source FBI Bureau of Statistics Database): According to the FBI 33 of the 281 mass killings (4 or more people according to the FBI) since 2006 were from “stabbing” or “knife”, axe or other sharp objects; 46 of the 281 mass killings since 2006 were from blunt force tactics (could result from pyrotechnics, vehicles, any object with enough force etc); and 25 cases since 2006 of the 281 mass killings in the united states were from smoke inhalation/burns (bombs, setting buildings on fire, etc).

This is a total of 107 of the 281 cases or approximately 38% of the mass killings that have occurred in the United States were of OTHER than gun-violence and the experts conclude that many more of these have gone unreported and thus the rate could be higher as they are simply incorrectly listed as individual murders instead of a mass killing.

Do we outlaw fertilizer and ammonia because they have been used in mass killings in this country in various “car” and other “bombs” to kill a mass of people (often in “gun-free zones…OKC bombing happened in a gun-free, federal zone)?

Peruse the following from China….a GUN-FREE zone if there ever was one (source Wikipedia):

December 14, 2012: a 36-year-old villager in the village of Chenpeng, Henan Province, stabbed 23 children and an elderly woman at the village’s primary school as children were arriving for classes.

August 2011: Eight children, all aged four or five,[23] were hurt in Minhang District, Shanghai when an employee at a child-care centre for migrant workers slashed the children who were 3 to 4 years old with a box-cutter

September 2011: a young girl and three adults taking their children to nursery school were killed in Gongyi,[25] Henan by 30-year-old Wang Hongbin with an axe.[26] Another child and an adult were seriously wounded but survived.[27] The suspect is a local farmer who is suspected of being mentally ill.

August 4, 2010: 26-year-old Fang Jiantang slashed more than 20 children and staff with a 60 cm knife, killing 3 children and 1 teacher, at a kindergarten in Zibo, Shandong province.

May 18, 2010: at Hainan Institute of Science and Technology, a vocational college in Haikou, Hainan, more than 10 men[19] charged into a dormitory wielding knives around 2:30 am;[20] after attacking the security guard and disabling security cameras, 9 students were injured, 1 seriously.[20] The local men attacked the dorm in an act of revenge and retaliation against college students following conflict the previous day at an off-campus food stall in which 4 students were injured, for a total of 13.

May 12, 2010 : An attacker named Wu Huanming, 48, killed seven children and two adults and injured 11 other persons with a cleaver at a kindergarten in Hanzhong, Shaanxi

Apr 29 2010: Just a few hours after the execution of Zheng Minsheng in neighboring Fujian Province,[10] in Leizhou, Guangdong another knife-wielding man named Chen Kangbing, at Hongfu Primary School wounded 16 students and a teacher.

March 23, 2010: Zheng Minsheng 41, murdered eight children with a knife in an elementary school in Nanping,[8] Fujian province;

This is only a SMALL sample of what I have found. If we go to other “gun-free” or gun-restricted countries such as Sweden, Switzerland the numbers are even higher and whats even MORE amazing is that the GUN VIOLENCE IS HIGHER!! Why because criminals will STILL GET GUNS! Only then, the citizenry CANNOT protect themselves if they desire to.

Lastly, if we look at the issue simply without researching the facts we can jump to the conclusion that gun violence is the end all to end all of violence but that would be a lie. Truth is that mass killings have happened LONG before black powder was even thought of and if we took every gun from every person in this world evil people will still figure out how to kill innocent people….period!
