Remember the game “clue”? As a kid, my family played this board game. One game it was Col. Mustard in the library with the candlestick. The next game it was Mrs Peacock in the Ballroom with the lead pipe. In the game, as in the 1985 movie of the same name, there were 6 possible murderers, several rooms and 6 possible weapons. A candlestick, rope, lead pipe, dagger, pistol and the pipe wrench. And the people; Mrs Peacock, Col. Mustard, Professor Plum, Miss Scarlett, Mr. Green and Mrs. White. But the original british version had Rev. Green, it was the North American version changed it to Mr. Green.
The 1985 movie was genious because there were 3 different endings and you had to go to each different ending to see the mystery answered. The game was great because it forced you the game player to use deductive reasoning. It made you think, and thinking is something people don’t do much these days.
Each of those 6 tools were used to kill Mr. Boddy, Dr. Black in the british version. The point is, each of those 6 tools could be used to kill. So why such hatred towards one specific tool, the pistol?
The ugly inconvienient truth is that out of all the deaths caused by the gun, less than 1% is from mass shooting, at least the mass shooting reported my the left wing media. 60% by suicide, less than 1% by accident and 38% by homicide and FBI crime statistics proove over 50% of those homicides are gang on gang violence with stolen, illegally aquired handguns.
But statistics show that 0.00925 % of Americans will die by a gun. Take away gang related murders, and you have 0.00156%. Now take away suicides and that number becomes 0.000936%. By comparison, 1% of Americans will die because of medical malpractice. That means statistically, you are 9 and a half times more likely to die by doctors than the gun.
But history has even different numbers to show. 1929 Russia started a power struggle which ended in total gun confiscation and 10’s of millions of executions. The Ottoman empire 1911 total gun confiscation followed by over 1.5 million executions. Germany 1938 started mass executions and genocide after total gun confiscation which ended in over 13 million Jews and countless more deaths caused by WWII. China 1935 over 20 million executed after gun control/confiscation. Cambodia 1956 Pol Pot executed over 1 million executed after gun confiscation.
Despots and dictators know that in order to subjugate a populace, guns MUST be removed from the general population.
Adolf Hitler wrote this: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police”.
Literally, you are more likely to die after gun control/confiscation than before. So, do you want to become a Mr. Boddy? I think it was communism in America with gun control.
