Gun Violence vs. Motor Vehicle Violence?

How to Turn Anti-Gun Arguments Against Gun Control Supporters

 by Dave Jollyanti liberty 2

It’s time loyal Americans call out Barack Obama and his liberal disciples on their anti-gun crusade. They claim that we need more gun control laws to help prevent gun violence in the U.S. One of their main points is the need for universal background checks for everyone wanting to purchase a firearm, own a firearm or receiving a firearm as a gift. Supposedly this will help the government prevent the wrong people from obtaining a gun, thus reducing the amount of gun violence in the U.S.

constitution-burning-150x150I’ve written many times about how the cities, states and even other countries that have the strictest gun control laws or bans have the highest incidence of gun violence and murders. If you don’t believe me then just take a look at the amount of gun violence in Chicago, Baltimore and New York. When Australia banned most gun ownership, the crime rates involving guns skyrocketed because homeowners no longer had the means to protect themselves, so the criminals went on a spree.your move...punk!

Obama and his disciples completely ignore the facts and create their own false narrative; so let’s look at their argument from another angle – logic.

If the anti-gun lobby are telling the truth and the real reason for their anti-Second Amendment agenda is to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by guns, then they should be even more concerned about the number of deaths and injuries caused by motor vehicles!

According to the anti-gun website BradyCampaign.org, approximately 108,000 Americans are shot each year resulting in 32,514 deaths. However, they do point out that over half of all gun deaths – 19,992 are due to suicide.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 2.3 million people were injured in motor vehicle accidents resulting in 32,675 killed in 2014. There were 9,967 vehicular fatalities that were the result of drivers having a blood alcohol level of 0.08 g/dl or higher. For the first half of 2015, they also reported 16,225 vehicular deaths.

While the fatality rates may be nearly equal, the number of people injured due to motor vehicles is 21.3 to every person injured by a gun. People regularly use their vehicles as weapons, running into and over people as well as driving them into buildings to gain access so they can rob the business inside. Many child molesters use their vehicle to patrol for young victims to be whisked away and never seen alive again.

Therefore, if universal background checks for firearms are truly intended to reduce gun violence, then the same logic dictates that universal background checks need to be used to screen for people applying for driver’s licenses and those trying to buy a vehicle, new or used. They need to screen for people with a history of sexual crimes, driving while under the influence and multiple traffic offenses and prevent them from obtaining a driver’s license or purchasing a motor vehicle.

But we all know that will never happen because reducing gun violence isn’t the real reason for Obama’s actions. The real reason is that he wants to know who has how many guns and then push to systematically limit the right to bear arms and then push to take our guns away. Having a more defenseless citizenry makes it easier to advance the Democratic Party’s socialist agenda for America (see the Humanist Manifesto(s) – the creeds of the Democratic Party).

President Obama’s executive actions on gun control policy is based on the anti-Christian principle that a man shall not use at all for enjoyment what his neighbor may abuse, a doctrine that would, if enforced by law in general practice annihilate society, make eunuchs of all men, or drive them into the cells of the monks, and bring the human race to an end, or continue it under the direction of licensed government agents.

There is only one reason for a government to try to disarm its citizens: to be able to do things to them that they would fight against if they were armed.
Here’s some interesting GUN CONTROL FACTS in history:

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million
Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13
million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up
and exterminated.

Maybe what we really need is Democrat control! Just who is responsible for the shootings as far back as the mid 1800’s?

Democrats and Guns:

In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States – who later died from the wound.

In 1963 a radical left wing socialist/communist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States .

In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States .

In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

In 1990, James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen , TX .

In 1995, James Daniel Simpson a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

In 1999 Larry Ashbrook, a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the U.S.
In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed others.

In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis .

In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in Newtown , CT.

As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.

So, maybe it should be illegal for Democrats to own guns?

Guns don’t kill people, Democrats do!

It has been said; When Life is too hard to stand, Kneel
Freedom is something that cannot be passed on in the blood stream, or genetically. And it’s never more than one generation away from extinction. Every generation has to learn how to protect and defend it, or it’s gone… and gone for a long, long time.” —Ronald Reagan.
