Pg. 14:

How Often Are Guns Used in Homicides?

As Table 1 shows, reports submitted by state and local law enforcement agencies to the FBI and published annually in the Uniform Crime Reports indicate that the firearms-related murder and non-negligent manslaughter rate per 100,000 of the population decreased from 6.6 for 1993 to 3.6 for 2000. The rate held steady at 3.6 for 2001 and fluctuated thereafter between a high of 3.9 for 2006 and 2007, and a low of 3.2 for 2010. For 2011, it has remained at 3.2.

America Doesnít Have a Gun Problem, It Has a Gang Problem

"...So what is happening in Chicago to drive it to the gates of hell ahead of Zimbabwe and Rwanda?

"A breakdown of the Chicago killing fields shows that 83% of those murdered in Chicago last year had criminal records. In Philly, itís 75%. In Milwaukee itís 77% percent. In New Orleans, itís 64%. In Baltimore, itís 91%. Many were felons who had served time. And as many as 80% of the homicides were gang related.

"Chicagoís problem isnít guns; itís gangs. Gun control efforts in Chicago or any other major city are doomed because gangs represent organized crime networks which stretch down to Mexico, and trying to cut off their gun supply will be as effective as trying to cut off their drug supply...."

Actually in some areas like Chicago it is nearly 85 percent gang related. It is thug on thug violence for victims and perpetrators who both should have been incarcerated. Sorry...shug

America has a liberal problem too. The demorats have done their best to shorten sentences with early release problems for our most violent criminals. Demorats haves abolished the Death Sentences in as many states that they can, and they have ended the institutionalized treatment of the violently insane. What is their answer to the problem THEY created? That's right....take guns away from law abiding citizens that want them for protection.

"Mason--The Executive negatives both Brs of the Legislatr and each Br. has a negative on the other--and the Genl. Gov. have a neg. on the State Legislature--these regulations are necessary on the principles of self Defence--it is an instinctive principle in nature, and in a proper degree every being professes this power. If the State Legislatures are deprived of the Election of the 2d. or 1st Br. of the natil. Legislature the States are destitute of this principle of self protection--I wish them to continue & I shall not agree to deprive them of the power of a constitutional self Protection..."-- The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787,[Farrand's Records, Volume 1] YATES. June 25th, 1787.
"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government ... The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms..."--Alexander Hamilton, Dec. 26, 1787, Independent Journal, The Federalist Papers No. 28.
"...Self defence is a primary law of nature, which no subsequent law of society can abolish; this primśval principle, the immediate gift of the Creator, obliges every one to remonstrate against the strides of ambition, and a wanton lust of domination, and to resist the first approaches of tyranny, which at this day threaten to sweep away the rights for which the brave sons of America have fought with an heroism scarcely paralleled even in ancient republicks...."-- Elbridge Gerry, Observations On the new Constitution, and on the Federal and State Conventions. By a Columbian Patriot. Sic transit gloria Americana.[Boston: 1788.]
"That no man should scruple, or hesitate a moment to use arms in defense of so valuable a blessing [as liberty], on which all the good and evil of life depends; is clearly my opinion; yet Arms...should be the last resort."--George Washington, 1789 letter to George Mason.[The True George Washington, 10th Ed. By Paul Leicester Ford.]
"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."-- St. George Tucker, United States District Court Judge, Blackstone's Commentaries,(1803).
"Whatever the great principle of self defence in its reasonable and necessary exercise will sanction in an individual in a state of nature, nations may lawful perform upon the ocean. This principle, as well as most others, may be carried to an unreasonable extent; it may be made the pretence instead of the real ground of aggression, and then it will become a just cause of war. I contend only for its reasonable exercise."-- Justice [William] Johnson, U.S. Supreme Court, ROSE v. HIMELY, 8 U.S. 241 (Cranch), February Term, 1808.
"The right of self-defence never ceases. It is among the must sacred, and alike necessary to nations and to individuals."-- President James Monroe, Nov. 16, 1818 message to the U.S. House and Senate.[Journal of the Senate of the United States of America, November 17th, 1818..]

That is their EXACT PURPOSEFUL GAME PLAN. Demonrats have infected the area of EVERY last place where they have been allowed to gain control. They are nothing more than an infectious disease. And should be treated accordingly.

MEANINGLESS and IRRELEVANT. The present military establishment is NOT what was INTENDED for this country. It is nothing more than our people being USED to advance the 'power' of the monied monopolies. And the VAST MAJORITY of our military mean and women are well aware of that FACT.

Oh, and by the way. The NRA was STARTED by ex-military. They formed, in part, to teach the newly freed slaves how to use firearms in order to DEFEND themselves.

Don't you realize that the majority of those in the military are either Black or Latino and their parents love Obama?
When you fight the Civil War again, the Democrats will have a big advantage.
