Second Amendment opponents frequently rest their beliefs on the assertion that America’s “gun culture” makes it a dangerous society compared to others around the world. But that’s simply not correct. The reality is that America’s murder rate is quite low.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in 2012 the American murder rate was just 4.8 per 100,000 people. Providing perspective, Honduras suffers the world’s highest murder rate at 91.6 per 100,000, with El Salvador second at 69.2. Venezuela, that gun-banning socialist paradise, stands at 45.1 per 100,000, and other nations that effectively prohibit firearms are also of a different magnitude than the United States.
Ben Shapiro smacks Morgan..And why is he, Morgan, babbling about assault weapons? No one used assault weapons in any shootings. assault weapons are reserved for Military use only..
Thursday’s CBS This Morning trumpeted Piers Morgan’s “crusade against gun violence in America“, and gave the CNN host four and half minutes to spout his pro-gun control views unopposed. Morgan endorsed implementing something akin to the “really draconian” firearms regulations that the U.K. passed after the 1996 Dunblane massacre. Despite denying that he wanted to take guns away from Americans, the British anchor repeatedly called for complete bans on “assault weapons” and handguns, along with high-capacity magazines.
“You come in here, brandish your little book as if I don’t know what’s in there-”
That is correct Morgan.Is our little book. Remember that before we have to remind you what and why we have it!!
Already, activists are planning a nationwide “Gun Appreciation Day” on Jan. 19, two days before the inauguration. Organizers hope it will rival the so-called “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” protests from last year.
Meanwhile, firearms manufacturers and organizations are seeing a big spike in activity. The NRA says 100,000 people joined in the last 20 days. They expect that what they call the “attack” on the Second Amendment will boost their membership from 4.2 million to 5 million.
For the facts about so-called “assault weapons” — what they really are and what they really aren’t — this site is about as informative as it gets.
Some critics, mainly People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, have spoken out against the hunt saying that decapitation of the snakes—which is considered a valid form of euthanization for the hunt—is borderline barbaric and sent a letter to Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission earlier this week.
“This bounty hunt is misguided in the first place, but allowing hunters to decapitate pythons—who remain alive and in agony and who will writhe for an hour even after their heads have been cut off—is despicably cruel,” PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk in a released statement. “Many of these animals were once someone’s ‘pets,’ who have since been thrown out like garbage, and the FWC has an obligation to ensure that they don’t suffer any more than they already have.”
Their heads have been chopped off. They feel nothing!!
Really? Here we have a career politician. WHom knows nothing or real life. Trying to dictate to people how they should live and with what or without. And these elitie assOs in Washington think they are going to pass or ‘executive order’ gun control and bans and expect rural America to say ‘Okay”? Just saying it may get ugly wehn you go into the backwoods, hill country rural areas of any state and say ‘gimme your tools.” They may get more then they want. A lot more..
Well with Buck Ofama being reconsecrated in whatever Religion he and his worshipers follow, why desecrate the Bible by having him swear the Oath on it? Hell he ignores his Oath of Office for the most part!!
The Middle East is hit by the region’s worst storm in 10 years
The Middle East has experienced the worst storm to hit the region in 10 years, according to meteorological officials. After days of heavy rains and high winds, the region has been covered in snow taking at least eight lives, causing millions of dollars in damage, and leaving parts of Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian territories without power, and paralyzing the Turkish city of Istanbul. The heavy rains damaged crops, properties, and electricity infrastructure in Lebanon. Rare snowfall closed roads throughout the region, and flooding caused several deaths. Strong winds and rain disrupted operations at Egypt’s Suez Canal and forced the closure of several ports. More than 500 Palestinians in the West Bank have been injured and over 400 homes have been flooded. The severe conditions have hit vulnerable populations in war torn Syria particularly hard as well as the conflict’s refugees, specifically the 50,000 living in the Zaatari tent camp in northern Jordan.
