You can Ban Guns, Knives, Sticks and Stones, but you won’t Disarm Evil


Half the firearms in the entire world are in the United States. The rate of murders by gunfire in the United States is almost 20 times higher than the average rate in 22 other populous, high-income countries where the frequency of other crimes is about the same. There is clearly a connection between these two facts, but it is not necessarily simple cause-and-effect.

Here’s one reason to suspect that it’s not that simple: The American rate for murders of all kinds — shooting, strangling, stabbing, poisoning, pushing people under buses, etc. — is seven times higher than it is in those other 22 rich countries.

It can’t just be guns…

(There are over 300 Million Guns  in the United States)

But here’s another interesting statistic: In the past 25 years, the proportion of Americans who own guns has fallen from about one in three to only one in five. However, the United States is a rich country, and the average American gun-owner has four or five firearms.

What has just happened in Sandy Hook, Conn., is the seventh massacre this year in which four or more people were killed by a lone gunman. The fact that this time 20 of the victims were little girls and boys 6 or 7 years old has caused a wave of revulsion in the United States, but it is not likely to lead to new laws on gun controls. It’s not even clear that new laws would help.



There in lies the Root Cause of all Evil and Violence in these

United States of America

  2. Excellent post Sami, God bless you!!!!


  3. I listening to the morning talk radio shows this morning, more and more people are calling for armed guards in our schools.
    In the aftermath of this recent tragedy, common sense once again rears it’s head.
    With the money we give to the school systems, there is no reason to not post a guard.
    They build massive Taj Mahals for the kids, claiming that better schools make better students.
    Bunk !
    Better teachers make better students.
    Last year, the school shut down twice due to bomb threats.
    (No bombs were found.)
    The school system we pay for has had the lowest graduation rate in the county for years, and yet the stupid voters gave them the money on the last levy to build a new one.
    Of course the graduation rate will skyrocket to maybe 75%.
    I doubt it.
    (The rest of the school’s grad rates are in the 90th percentile.)


    • Interesting that you should post about putting an Armed Guard or Guards in all of our schools. I found a great picture on face book with the idea of hiring our unemployed combat veterans to protect our children. They certainly would be prepared to handle any kind of intruder who comes in armed to kill. I will post the picture in my next article.


      • There are many men and women that provided security on the bases that I was assigned to.
        They guarded hangers, and aircraft, and manned the gates.
        The training that they were given does not go away when you muster out.

  7. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Stop blaming the firearms. Criminals will get their weapons regardless of the laws.
