NYC Mayor: Alarming Rise in Stabbings Due to Gun Control — UK-Style Knife Ban Next?

| |

Knife-to-a-gun-fight

Gun control is supposed to make us all so much safer, right?

The gun grabbers love to twist statistics and talk about how much better life will be when everyone’s Second Amendment is done away with (as if innocent, legal gun owners are the ones causing the problem) and the only option the average innocent person should have to protect him or herself is to call the cops and wait however it long it takes for the cops to finally show up. That person, by the way, better hope he or she does not try to defend herself with another weapon in the meantime because if the cops show up in the middle of that, the victim will end up shot. Why?

Because we live in a country where cops can burst into the wrong house during a raid and taser and arrest an innocent 86-year-old man because he dared to hold a knife while cooking soup in his own home (and this happened in NYC, too).

This Brady Center ad is a parody, but considering their goal, how would you know?

But now even New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has had to admit that gun control doesn’t exactly work, especially not in the ways the anti-Second Amendment camp has promised.

Sure, there are fewer guns on the streets of New York, but does that automatically equal safer people? As the NYPD has cracked down on guns, slashings and stabbings have now increased dramatically in NYC, up a whopping 20 percent so far this year.

The reason? De Blasio says the reason is gun control.

Via NYC.gov:

NYPD has driven down violent crime now for almost a quarter-century and increasingly they are getting at the supply of guns with, by the way ­– a very adverse situation because there are so many guns available in this country, and all the guns that come up from other states. But there’s been a major increase in gun seizures. There’s been a reduction in shootings. NYPD is doing extraordinary work. We now have the Gun Violence Suppression Unit – 200 officers focused specifically on getting at guns. We have the new gun courts we’re instituting. So, I’m not a criminologist, but I can safely say that guns are being taken off the street in an unprecedented way. Some people, unfortunately, are turning to a different weapon – thank God, typically, a less deadly weapon but they’re turning to a different weapon. Well, guess what that means? The NYPD will now go get those weapons.

While knives can be less deadly than guns, they can also be just as deadly as guns. China has seen mass stabbings that have left 29 people dead and 130 wounded.

Similarly in the UK, where all the guns have been grabbed, stabbings are off the charts and now the government has started asking people to turn in their knives:

The new “Save a Life – Surrender Your Knife” program is in full swing and police are telling us that they have joined forces with an already growing trend in the United Kingdom to ban “pointy” knives.

Lancashire Police tell us that an “amnesty” program began at the end of August, and “more than 800 knives have been handed in across the county – including swords, machetes and commando knives.”

“The amnesty was extended for a further week owing to its success,” Lancashire Police representatives explained.

The Lancashire department explains that their “officers have now given their backing to a national initiative designed to raise awareness of knife crime and encourage the surrender of dangerous weapons.”

That’s right. This even includes kitchen knives. It’s the “Save a Life — Surrender Your Knife” program:

8324baa5aab781e50a45e3a9ca8b24d2

You can just see the Black Lives Matter crowd getting in on this one at some point in the future, can’t you?

They even card people who attempt to buy plastic cutlery that includes knives over there:

ban-plastic-knives

Once the guns are gone, ask yourself America, are we next for knife bans?

You can almost see it coming. The justification is already being laid the same way as it was in Great Britain.

Once again, this just goes to show how faulty the gun grabbing argument is. Criminals who want to commit crimes of violence against others will always find a way, no matter how many laws and how much gun control gets instituted. Take the guns? They’ll use knives. Take the knives? They’ll use whatever else they can get their hands on. The police can’t ban everything and they can’t protect everyone. It’s security theater to act like they can. Why do you think gun grabbers like former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg walk around with an entourage of guards armed with guns?

Everyone has a natural right to self-protection. The people behind this agenda ultimately want a completely helpless populace where only the government has the guns, but even if they find a way to erase the Bill of Rights, it will never happen. Criminals will still get guns and the tyrannical government will still be armed to the teeth — the very reason the Second Amendment was penned in the first place.

    ban knives, people will beat each other with clubs, ban clubs and they will find something else to use. LEAVE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS ALONE and do some CRIMINAL CONTROL instead of gun control.

    • GIVVO6_B

      Ha ha 5% of the world population with 25% of the world prison population. It seems only a tiny minority of US psychopaths are law abiding.

      • HENK-2

        Most people in prison have committed no crimes.

        Smoking pot is not a crime but since there are private prisons there are now more corrupt and richer judges than ever before.

        Politicians are corrupt, judges are corrupt, cops are corrupt.

        And 90% of the people in prison should never have been there.

        And do a search on the I’net how many Whites are there as opposed to Negroes or Hispanics.

        The latter two groups will be the majority even although they are not a majority of the population.

        • Smoking pot has never be illegal.

          • SP_88

            Why should anyone be in prison for pot? Where is the victim? Where is the problem? How is it harming anyone? Not to mention the benefits, which they will argue can be found using some other toxic and expensive drug with a lot of side effects.
            And as for the effects of being under the influence of something, there are way more people who have been arrested for something they did while drunk than stoned on weed. People are seriously injured and killed in bar fights and car crashes and falling down while drunk all the time. This doesn’t happen with pot. I’m sure that there are exceptions, but it certainly doesn’t happen every day like it does with drunk people.
            And yet which one is legal? The one that makes people relax? Or the one that makes people become violent, out of control and incapable of functioning or reasoning and is notorious for causing people to kill other people while driving drunk or assaulting people? It doesn’t make any sense at all.
            The anti-marijuana laws have harmed more people than the marijuana ever would have. How many people are in jail for selling pot? How many people have lost a good job because they smoked some pot while they were on their own time and in the privacy of their own homes? The whole thing is ridiculous.

          • Most pot prosecutions are for possession, with or without intent to distribute. I’m really surprised that no one has ever challenged the prohibition, given that there was no constitutional amendment required, as there was for alcohol. Maybe that was because the same federal agency just changed horses when they came to the stream.

          • SP_88

            Pot being illegal serves several purposes for the government. First, it gives them a reason to continue their costly, ineffective and unnecessarily dangerous war on drugs, it allows the government to make a lot of money from the sale of illegal drugs which they use to fund their war on drugs and black ops, and it ensures a large prison population to keep the private prison racket in business. Everything they do is built around making money.

          • Pot prohibition was originally based on providing employment for Harry Anslinger and his gang after the prohibition amendment was repealed, which he was given sufficient notice of happening to spend $50 of the taxpayers money on a propaganda piece called Reefer Madness, to scare Congress into banning pot.

          • SP_88

            Reefer Madness was the most ridiculous propaganda piece ever written. Everything in it was such BS. You can’t even say it was an exaggeration because there wasn’t a single bit of truth to any of it.
            Even now there is propaganda against pot, but it’s more like an exaggeration than the blatant lies in Reefer Madness.
            The problem with telling kids lies about smoking pot is that when they finally figure out that they have been lied to, they no longer worry about any of the real problems with it. Not that the real problems with smoking pot are serious or dangerous, but just like anything else if you use it too much it can cause some problems like not being motivated to do their school work or find a job or gaining weight from having the munchies all the time. And then there is the possibility of them thinking that if they were lied to about pot, what about other drugs? They might think that other drugs like coke and heroin aren’t bad for them either, or at least not as bad as they were led to believe.
            So if we tell them the truth about pot and we don’t insult their intelligence with ridiculous lies about it, when we tell them about how bad coke, crack and heroin are, they’ll take it seriously and hopefully they will listen.
            If you ask people what they think about smoking pot, most of them will say that it’s not a big deal and that it being illegal makes no sense. Most people, even people who don’t smoke it, really don’t think it should be illegal, and they don’t care if other people want to smoke it, as long as they aren’t doing anything that will effect them or put them in any type of danger, like driving while they are stoned. It’s sort of like alcohol in the sense that people should be careful what they are doing when they use it. When Bill Clinton admitted to smoking pot, nobody cared. Nobody believed that he didn’t inhale either, so that was a waste of a lie. Nobody would have cared if he just came out and said that he smoked it and got high. And then when Obozo came out and said that he smoked pot and he was part of the choom gang, nobody was against it and nobody cared.
            I’m surprised that with so many people who are either for legalizing marijuana or aren’t against it, that it is still illegal. There has been a lot of progress towards legalizing marijuana lately, but there is still a long way to go. There needs to be a repeal of all the national marijuana laws. Once that is accomplished, the states will give up trying to keep it illegal and it will quickly become legal. But that is going to be a lot of work.
            If our government really did what we wanted, like they are supposed to, it would already be legal. I think that most people would vote to legalize marijuana. You would think that since Obama was a pot head that he would push to legalize it. He could just pass an executive order to make pot legal. You would think that they would want to pacify the people with as many drugs as possible to keep them from realizing how screwed up everything is. If everyone was stoned all the time, you would think that they wouldn’t care about all the corruption and lawlessness in our government. I’m not saying that that’s what would really happen, but I could picture them thinking that it would work out like that. Unfortunately there isn’t enough pot to make me forget how much we’re getting screwed by the government.

          • Heroin is no more dangerous than any other illicit drug if it is pure. The two goals of the CIA’s drug marketing are as apocryphal as the truths hidden by Reefer Madness.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Are you like the Zionists and always change the subject when you have lost the argument? The Zionists then start abuse as their argument. If you want to be able to be a clown in an argument just read, “Hasbara handbook” and you will be able to tell lies just like the land stealing Zionists.

          • I don’t have to change an argument which is on point whereas your’s isn’t.

          • GIVVO6_B

            You already did change the subject from guns and knives and started going on about pot.

          • And then you changed it to ad hominem.

          • GIVVO6_B

            I bet you don’t know what that means. Did you have a classical education? I thought not!

        • GIVVO6_B

          A criminal population ruled by a vicious criminal government.

        • GIVVO6_B

          I would hate to live in a stupid country as corrupt as USA.

      • SP_88

        Another gun hater with twisted logic and phony statistics to push a preconceived notion. People have a right to defend themselves. Period. No justification needed. And nobody has the right to decide for me what I can or cannot use to defend myself up to a reasonable level. I should not be punished because of the actions of others.
        We don’t have a gun problem. We have a criminal problem. Or more accurately a law enforcement problem. The police are too busy handing out tickets to bring in revenue for the state to be bothered going after the gang bangers and drug dealers who are shooting each other over turf. And if they are, it’s not enough. And it certainly isn’t a priority.
        I’m sick of hearing all these excuses for taking our gun rights, like how just having one makes my home so dangerous that everyone is gonna die, or how I will shoot my wife or children because I thought that they were a burglar, or any number of other ridiculous scenarios.
        And the reason so many people are in prison is not my problem, but there are a lot of laws that criminalize things that have no victim. But law abiding gun owners are not amongst them. In fact a police officer is six times more likely to be arrested and convicted for a crime than a licensed gun owner. Licensed gun owners are among the most law abiding people in America. They are not part of the crime problem here. America is number 118 for firearm deaths. Hardly the worst country for gun crime, especially considering that we have the most civilian owned firearms in the world. There are 117 other countries with higher gun crime rates and most of them have either tough gun control laws or outright bans on privately owned guns.
        But none of that matters. We have a right to own firearms and a right to defend ourselves. And if you read some history you would know why. And it has nothing to do with self defense, hunting or sport. But you won’t. You are probably so entrenched in your beliefs that you would never consider the reasons why you are wrong.
        Human beings are very war like and primitive. Sure we have invented a lot of fancy gadgets and made a lot of amazing discoveries, but there are still a lot of primitive instincts built into us. Taking away the tools will not take away the violence. It will not make people safer. Only when people reach a point in our development where we all voluntarily decide to settle our differences with words instead of violence will things like firearms not be necessary for defending ourselves from each other. Of course then there will be no problem having them because nobody will shoot people anymore. So either way there is no reason not to have one, or several.
        And if you aren’t comfortable with a gun, just call the police and wait, like you want everyone else to do. But just because you want that doesn’t mean that everyone else should have to. Why should I be forced to use a knife or a bat to defend my home from someone who might have a gun? We could all be dead by the time the police show up. No thanks.

        • No matter what they scribble on paper, say they ban all guns tomorrow… you turnin’ yours in? I’m not, I need them to protect my family & myself.

          • That is one of the many reasons I moved where I did.

          • SP_88

            If their paper scribbling is so important, why don’t they follow what they scribbled down? They only follow their laws when there is money to be made for the state or if it suits their agenda. But when there is an actual victim who has been harmed by the actions of some criminal, they couldn’t be bothered. In fact, by taking away the right to own a firearm, they are encouraging the criminals to rob and assault people. There will be a whole lot more victims for them to ignore. They will force people to be victims or “criminals”. Good people who don’t want to be victims and who don’t want their families to be victims will become criminals by default. It’s sad that people don’t care enough to realize what they are allowing to happen to people just so they can feel safe from an inanimate object. If only they could be made to realize how much less safe they will be because of it. When crime is allowed to skyrocket because there is no deterrent other than scribbling on paper, and there is almost zero risk of anything bad happening to a criminal while breaking into someone’s house and robbing them and assaulting them because everyone is disarmed but the criminals, then maybe these people who supported the anti-gun politicians will suddenly realize how wrong they were. But by then it will be too late.

          • I am already a criminal by default for the same reasons.

          • SP_88

            It’s better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Yes you Yanks have made millions be carried by six as you are murderous psychopaths and love guns.

          • Our violence stats are lower though…

          • GIVVO6_B

            No they are not and we can start with 3.8 million dead people in Vietnam and then a million in Iraq and that is not counting all the dead of Afghanistan, Libya and elsewhere. 30,000 gun deaths every year in USA and in Europe there is hardly a country that ever exceeds 100 gun deaths a year. Keep living in your arrogant murderous dream world that runs on arrogant BS.

          • Thanks! I’ll keep protecting myself with guns which is my God-given RIGHT too! And BTW, your gun free utopias are violent crime havens, why don’t you dishonest gun grabbers ever look at how many times guns are used for protection? It’s in the millions of instances per year! I’ll tell you why, because you are a very lowlife bunch that cherry pick stats to try and sound right when you’re not. Thank God nobody listens to you except for brain-dead liberals.

          • GIVVO6_B

            God did not give you a gun. USA has far more crime havens than anywhere in the industrialized world. Oh I forgot your industry is flourishing so much that your whole country will soon look like Detroit.

          • Blaming us for the actions of zionist jews infecting our government is dishonest. We are guilty of apathy for sure though.

          • Wags71

            Yes, our government is the most corrupt in the world and kills millions of people. It’s horrible and there’s nothing you or we can do about it. We don’t trust this same government to take guns away and give them free reign to invade our homes without hesitation. Which of course they would do because they are so violent and corrupt.

            You sure are one strange troll. No one is even arguing with you about most of the things you’re saying except the dumb gun crap. We don’t have any pride in our country in regards to war and killing people all over the world for the sake of giant corporations’ empire building.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Criminal is what you are and a gun junkie.

          • hahaha, I am indeed a criminal but I am not a gun junkie, I just have what I need in case anybody thinks they can help themselves to my girl or my stuff. In my case I will only call the cops to clean up, think about that next time you & yours break into somebody’s home. If you are unlucky enough that it’s mine that’ll be then end of you… count on it, crying for your life won’t work with me, I’m merciless, especially if you break into my house.

          • I wouldn’t call the police to clean up unless it needed to be documented. Since more house breaking is done by government employees than by criminals, they should provide their own documentation people as well.

          • If someone is lying dead on my floor I have to call them to clean up, I don’t want to call them to clean up.

          • The clean up is less important than the documentation of self defense actions being the cause of the mess. Since it is extremely unlikely that anyone is going to wind up on the floor of my van, they will probably land on someone else’s property, and my notification is totally self interest.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Much more likely to have someone dead on an American floor than in any other country in the industrialized world.

          • Bullshit.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Gun junkies have no balls and just try and rely on killing people they are too afraid to confront as men.

          • My scarred knuckles prove you’re full of shit like all other lowlife gun grabbing commies.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Typical Yank all bullshit and no sense.

          • Like I care what you think. Don’t like “Yanks,” don’t come to the US!

          • GIVVO6_B

            What garbage America has far more criminals that the rest of the industrialized world.

          • SP_88

            America has far more laws to break than any other country. This is because the prison system is a private company that has to make a profit. And so they have lobbied for more laws and stricter sentences in order to keep the prisons filled. So it’s not that there are more criminals, it’s that we make more things illegal than anyone else. Many people are in prison for non-violent victimless crimes like growing pot or selling coke. The useless war on drugs is responsible for a lot of people ending up in prison. But guess who almost never ends up in prison? The wealthy elitists who rob us blind and kill anyone who tries to expose them for the criminals they are. There are definitely two sets of rules, one for us and another for them.
            And if America has so many criminals, it only further supports my case. People have a right to protect their lives and their families from criminals. It doesn’t matter what “laws” are written in some book somewhere, if they are not in agreement with the Constitution, they are null and void.
            The cops are not going to protect anyone. They can’t. It is unreasonable to expect them to even try. So that means that we must be responsible for our own security. And to be effective at securing ourselves and our property from armed criminals, we must be armed. The Constitution guarantees that right among others. And it doesn’t say “….shall not be infringed, unless…., or …if or except”. There are no conditions. It doesn’t say unless you are a felon or were arrested for drugs or were the subject of a restraining order. No other rights are based on certain conditions being met. And neither should that one.
            In my opinion, if someone has committed a serious crime, but will not be spending the rest of their lives in prison, any limits of their 2nd amendment rights should be part of their sentence. It should be done on an individual basis. Not some law that blankets as many people as possible. And there should be strict guidelines for any limits of their 2nd amendment rights. For instance, some people may have the right to buy or own a firearm taken for five years upon release from prison. And others may lose that right for ten years. Many people may not lose it at all. It should depend on the case and following the guidelines. Some guidelines could be for instance, if the crime was non-violent, the 2nd amendment right cannot be taken. If the crime was violent, but no weapon was used, and nobody was killed, the right can be taken, but for no longer than five years. And if a gun was used, but nobody was killed, the right can be taken for no more than fifteen years. These are just my ideas.
            The point is that the government has no right to just take away the 2nd amendment rights of people who haven’t harmed anyone. There are so many people who cannot buy a firearm to protect their families with because they were arrested for something stupid decades ago and now their right to own a firearm is gone forever. It just isn’t right. If the government is going to take or limit someone’s 2nd amendment rights, there should be limits and it should be done individually. It should be part of the sentence. And if it isn’t, than their 2nd amendment rights are not taken or limited and they are allowed to buy a firearm as soon as they are released from prison.

          • GIVVO6_B

            No because you would rather shoot someone and anyway I expect like most Americans you want your gun to make up for what you lack in the trouser department.

          • Get out of the USA then, go to mexico if you’re so friggin’ scared, the guns are illegal there so NOBODY has any(yeah right) lololol! No planned migrant invasion is gonna work here while we are armed… and we are staying armed so why don;t you mind your own fucking business? Oh, that’s right, you’re a piece of shit gun grabber that is incapable. Oh well, you can sit there and do stompy feet that we are still armed.

          • GIVVO6_B

            I have been to USA many times and I was totally underwhelmed with your collapsing infrastructure. Anyway I would not like to be in a country that has $120 trillion in unfunded liabilities and only lives by defrauding the rest of the world.

          • Well I am not going to sit here and defend my zionist occupied government so I agree with you on that.

          • GIVVO6_B

            A policeman will be found available to shoot you in the head then! However your police are as bad as the rest of your population.

        • GIVVO6_B

          So you American gun junkies are really criminals? Is that what you are saying? Yanks are unfit to be seen in the rest of the world, so why don’t you just rack off!

          • Too bad those damn “racist” numbers/statistics prove you’re full of shit.

          • GIVVO6_B

            We know you are full of shit and you have no answer to any statistics as your statistics show you are just arrogant psychos.

          • Nope, sorry you low life commie. Those stats out your dishonest ass every time!

          • GIVVO6_B

            30,000 gun deaths against 41 as in UK last year. Shows what morons you gun junkies really are.

          • Now go look at the violent crime stats, moron.

          • I don’t care for Yanks either, but that just marks up the fact that you mean something different than I do per the meaning of the word.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Johnny Reb slave owner are you?

          • Yanks are the indigenous scum that occupy New England.
            I was born in the only state that had to put USA on its license plate to prevent its citizens from being taken for Mexicans.

        • GIVVO6_B

          My logic is not twisted but you have no logic based on facts. 30,000 people killed every year by Americans and their guns. No more than 100 per country in Europe.
          Per 100,000 people in USA there are 10.54 gun deaths
          Germany there are 1.01
          UK there are 0.23
          Spain 0.62
          Japan 0.06
          Netherlands 0.58
          Now use your arrogance to talk yourself around that!

          • SP_88

            Of that 30,000 people, 19,000 are suicides. The other 11,000 are homicides. Not the highest in the world. There are 117 other countries with higher homicide rates than us. Most of these homicides are a result of gang violence, something the government allows by virtue of their inaction. They do almost nothing to stop gang violence in big cities. The countries you compared us to don’t have the gangs and gang problems that we do. And if you didn’t count the gangland shootings in the statistics, our homicide rates wouldn’t be much different than theirs.
            So yeah, your logic is twisted, and so is your ideology. You condemn an entire population of 320 million people because of the actions of 0.003% of them, clearly the judgment of a very arrogant person. And a person who couldn’t care less about the right to defend ourselves against the criminals you say are so rampant in America.
            There are 2.5 million self defense uses of a firearm in America every year. Have you given one second of thought to what will happen to all those people if they don’t have a gun? Most of those incidents end without having to pull the trigger. But if those people didn’t have a gun, instead of it being an issue that never makes the news, it will be a situation where the victim ends up dead or injured by the criminal. And all these victims will have to be added to the 30,000. That’s an awful lot of extra victims.
            Guns prevent a lot more deaths than they cause, by a wide margin. But you don’t care about that, do you? All you care about is your anti-gun crusade. You don’t care about the consequences of such a foolish endeavor. Without guns there will still be those who want to hurt other people. And they will use whatever weapon is available, including guns. Only the good guys will follow any anti-gun laws, and they will suffer at the hands of armed criminals with illegal guns. Taking away the guns will only harm the good people. It will do nothing to stop violence or gang shootings or any other criminal activities. Because criminals do not follow the law.
            Use your twisted logic to BS your way around that.

          • GIVVO6_B

            They are all gun deaths. Fewer guns always means fewer gun deaths. Just look at Australia and the UK who put restrictions on gun ownership and having a result of far fewer gun deaths. The stats speak for themselves.

          • SP_88

            Fewer guns most certainly does not mean fewer gun deaths. And stricter gun control laws is not going to have the desired effect on gun violence, at least not in the short term.
            In Chicago there are very strict gun control laws. Yet Chicago is the homicide capital of America. By contrast, the southern states like Georgia that have very few restrictions on gun ownership, there are a lot fewer gun deaths.
            And the gun confiscations in Australia didn’t have the effect that they said it would either. After the gun confiscations there was a substantial increase in violent crime. Home invasions, robberies and assaults went up because the criminals knew that the citizens were unarmed.
            The gun confiscations can’t be credited with the drop in suicides either. Suicides were already in a steady decline for years before that. And fewer guns doesn’t mean fewer suicides either. The country with the highest suicide rate in the world has zero gun ownership. There are no privately owned guns at all.
            People seem to have the illusion that gun control laws will somehow reduce crime and make people safer. But there are already thousands of gun control laws in effect and none of them have had any effect on crime. And it isn’t because they aren’t strict enough. It’s because the idea of using gun control laws to reduce crime is a completely flawed idea. It will never work because it can’t work. By design gun control laws only effect gun sales through legal gun stores and gun dealers. And the target of these laws is people who are buying guns from these legal gun businesses. At best they will only stop the occasional criminal. Maybe 2% or so of criminals will be deterred from buying a gun because of background checks. And of that 2%, most of them will likely resort to buying a gun from the black market where all the other criminals buy their guns. Criminals who sell illegal guns don’t do background checks or anything else to prevent guns from ending up in the hands of criminals. In fact, their whole business is based on selling guns to criminals for the purpose of committing crimes with. And in the process they are bypassing all gun control laws. And that is why gun control laws will never work.
            And the other problem with gun control laws is that they are preventing or restricting law abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves against the criminals who have no problem buying guns. Guns are used for defensive purposes a lot more than they are used to commit crimes and suicide at a ratio of about 10 to 1. So gun control laws are doing more harm than good. People who are against guns will look at the number of gun crimes and homicides, but they never take into account all the extra victims there would be if people didn’t have guns. There are 11,000 homicides every year but there are 2.5 million crimes that don’t happen every year because of an armed citizen. If guns were outlawed there would be a very large number of additional victims who were unable to defend themselves.
            Most of the gun crimes in America are a result of gang violence. If the police were able to stop gang members from shooting people, our homicide statistics wouldn’t be much different than other developed countries. I think that if we started getting rid of our gang problem it would make a big difference in our homicide rate. But for some reason they seem to be ignoring the gangs.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Load of total rubbish! USA has 30,000 gun deaths per year and almost no restrictions on guns. Japan has virtually no gun deaths and very strict gun control. Japan has not had as many gun deaths since 1945 as America has every month.

          • SP_88

            It’s not simply because of their gun restrictions that they have fewer homicides. Their culture is very different from ours. But their suicide rate is extremely high. Not having access to firearms hasn’t had any effect on suicide. And it won’t change it here either.
            So what we are left with is the 11,000 homicides every year. And since you seem to know that I’m so wrong about how gun control is an utter failure in America, tell me how exactly will any gun control laws make America safer? How do you suppose it will work? How would it stop criminals from selling guns to each other, effectively bypassing all gun control laws? And how will gun control make people safer without putting them in danger by leaving them defenseless?
            They already tried an assault weapons ban that had no discernible effect on gun crime. So called “assault weapons” are only used in about 1% or so of gun crimes, so it could only have a very minimal effect at best, assuming that it stops 100% of crime involving “assault weapons”, which it won’t.
            Making up laws to stop criminals and dangerous people from getting guns is a very ineffective method of stopping gun crime. Most criminals get their guns from other criminals, not at gun stores or gun shows or anywhere that will leave a paper trail that leads back to them.
            There was an interview with a bunch of people who were in prison for gun crimes. And they asked them where they acquired the guns they used to commit the crime with. And all but one said that they got the guns from another criminal.
            There is no way for any gun control laws to stop a private citizen from selling a gun to another private citizen. And that is exactly how these criminals are getting their guns, especially the gang members.
            It makes a lot more sense to start with the gang problem we have in America. Instead of disarming the law abiding citizens, they should be disarming the gang members who are shooting each other in our big cities and hitting innocent bystanders in the process. This needs to be dealt with as a gang problem, not a gun control problem.

  • Eventually NYers will have to choke each other to death, if they insist. Maybe they need arm control…

      The world will soon have a choice to remove USA from the rest of the world or suffer even more arrogant crap. Disarm America and save millions of lives on every continent. BDS should not only be used on the fascist land stealing entity called Israel, but also the mass murdering USA

      • BDS?

        • GIVVO6_B

          Boycott, Divest and Sanction. The Zionists are screaming blue murder about this and keep trying to make retaliation against their inhumanity to Palestinians illegal. They call it anti-Semitism. Funny because Arabs are just as Semitic as Jews. BDS in Israel is about punishing them for theft and war crimes.

          • BDS is just a first good step in the direction of the Neo-Nuremberg trial really required to deal with Israel’s neo-nazis.

  • randy wellman

    this is just sooo ridiculous i don’t even know where to start. why would you allow all those pointy knives in the first place? everyone KNOWS the points on knives are only there for killing people. they should make all knives without pointy ends….better yet, we should pass legislation IMMEDIATELY to ban ALL knives. all we need to do is make manufacturers of food products slice them before we buy them. no more NEED for those nasty knives. an added benefit would be the jobs created by the few extra steps to accomplish that end….problem solved…you remember we banned the corded telephones, because of all the murders by strangling people with those phone cords….automobiles, YOU’RE NEXT…..i see bussessssss….shhh….ok, sarcasm OFF!

    If you don’t ban guns you will still have 30,000 gun deaths every year, Even in UK there are fewer than one knife death per week, so never mind about the total US BS. In UK there are fewer than 40 gun deaths per year and fewer than 60 knife deaths. You Yankee gun junkies find it very difficult not to lie, especially about statistics. In fact there are fewer than one hundred gun deaths per year in any European country.

        • SP_88

          You are either a troll or a brainwashed slave. You have that “punish the victim” mentality. You would rather have innocent people get raped or murdered just so you could have a disarmed society. But a disarmed society is an enslaved society. Look at Europe. They are defenceless against the invaders of their countries. They have to stand by and watch as their wives and children are raped and beaten by these refugees. They have been rendered helpless by politicians. Now they will pay the price for their stupidity.
          Fortunately we have the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. We will fight to keep from losing our right to defend ourselves. And if our country is flooded with refugees who think that they can rape and murder people whenever they want, we won’t be defenceless against them. We won’t have to stand idly by while they rape our wives and children. We won’t have to be the victims of these people who get away with murder because the police are too afraid to do anything about the refugees because they are afraid of being called “Islamaphobes”. We won’t become victims just to satisfy the mental deficiency of someone like you. If you are afraid of inanimate objects, perhaps you should seek help.

          • SP_88

            We are very much against the actions of the government. This isn’t our fault, we oppose them. The government has gotten way out of control. I agree with you that our foreign policy is an absolute failure and they have used every excuse to violate the sovereignty of other countries and bomb people and hospitals and kill women and children. But you need to understand that not every American supports this. There are a lot of people who are against all of this. The only fault I would blame Americans for is allowing this to go on for so long. Inaction is a lot like saying it’s ok.
            But you can’t blame all Americans. And you can’t blame private gun owners. Most gun owners are very opposed to the actions of the government.

        • SP_88

          And what about the 2.5 million people who are saved by owning a firearm every year? Without guns there will be an awful lot more victims to add to that “30,000” (it’s more like 11,000, but gun grabbers never let those pesky facts get in the way of their agenda, the other 19,000 or so are suicides, a mental health problem, not a gun control problem). You people never think about the consequences of your ideas. And you never stop and think about what we are. Human beings will hurt and kill each other whether guns exist or not. Before guns were invented, there was no way for some weak or elderly person to defend themselves against whoever felt like robbing them or beating them. Guns changed all that. They leveled the playing field. Now a little old lady can easily defend herself against a 220 pound lunatic on PCP who wants to rob and beat her. But you don’t care about that. You only care about the illusion of safety. Not actual safety.
          Your gun free utopia doesn’t exist. Not in this lifetime. We just aren’t ready yet. Until then we will have to deal with the few homicides so that we don’t have to deal with the many homicides. Guns prevent way more deaths than they cause, by a wide margin.

          • GIVVO6_B

            Ha ha! 2.5 million saved by guns. What planet do you live on? You are merely full of excrement. It is you gun junkies that kill 30,000 people a year and nobody in the industrial world comes even close.

      Leftists won’t be happy until everyone is disarmed and the police can shoot anyone for any reason whatsoever.
      And exactly what laws have been loosened? There shouldn’t be any laws. There is only one Constitutional gun law in America. It’s called The 2nd Amendment. And it trumps all other laws. So if any gun laws have been loosened or removed, than it brings us closer to a Constitutional Republic and further from an oligarchy or corporate fascism. It’s how things should be.

      • GIVVO6_B

          Because they’re slaves, Einstein. The US is one of the most free lands left in the world because of their gun-rights.

          If you can’t understand that, you shouldn’t even be allowed to express an opinion at the grown-ups table.

          If you’re not a Red, you’re being one of their “useful-idiots”.

        • If you consider only the white population there aren’t many violent gun deaths at all. You know that they count suicide as “gun violence” just to boost up the numbers that are too low for their liking, right?

          You keep saying that America has the highest number of homicides because of guns, but apparently you haven’t done your homework.
          As I told you before, America is far from having the highest level of homicides and gun deaths and mass shootings. Many countries in Europe have much higher numbers of mass shootings than America. Norway had 2.0 mass shooting victims per one million people. Macedonia is 0.38, Serbia is 0.28, Slovakia is 0.20, Finland is 0.14, Belgium is also 0.14, Czech Republic is 0.13 and America is much lower at 0.095.
          And homicides are only as high as they are because of gang shootings. The majority of them occur in big cities with high population density and large numbers of gangs.
          You think that gun laws will somehow make everyone safe, that simply banning guns will somehow stop the violence. It won’t. France has pretty strict gun control laws, yet they didn’t stop those people who attacked and killed a bunch of people at the concert and the stadium on 11/13/2015. They were armed with pistols, AK-47’s, a rocket launcher, ten sticks of dynamite, and various grenades, all of which were illegal to have. But criminals don’t typically care about the laws, because they are criminals. So much for laws stopping people from getting guns and illegal weapons. And of course nobody in France can own a firearm, so there was nobody there to stop these terrorists. And they were able to continue with their plans unhindered by anyone.
          In America, the states with the most lenient gun control laws and high numbers of gun owners, the homicide rates are much lower than in states with strict gun control laws and fewer gun owners, not counting the criminals with guns.
          There are about 80 million gun owners in America. And almost all of them do not commit crimes or shoot people. Licensed gun owners are among the most law abiding people in America. Police officers are arrested at a rate of six times the rate of licensed gun owners. It isn’t them committing crimes and killing people. Gun owners in America aren’t the problem. And no matter what names you call them and no matter how much you hate them, the solution to the violence and homicides has nothing to do with them or our gun rights.
          You can call people names and pull statistics out of your ass to try and make it look like America has the worst gun violence problem, but nobody cares what you think, especially when you twist the facts and change the subject every time you get proven wrong.
          I don’t know if you really believe the BS you are spewing or if you are just pushing an agenda, but either way you are wrong and everyone knows it.

            Excuses excuses! America has a much worse gun violence problem than any other country in the industrialized world. If you worship guns you will have to pay the price.

            You are one of those people who will say anything to push an agenda. Nothing you say is backed up by a speck of proof. You rant and rave about how bad guns are because you don’t like them, not because there is anything wrong with having one.
            People are the problem. A very small number of people. Much less than one percent.
            So go ahead and ramble on and on about something that is caused by 0.001% of the people, but everyone should somehow suffer because of them. You think that everyone should give up their freedom because of a tiny number of bad people. You are a fool. If we haven’t done anything wrong, we aren’t giving up our freedom. It doesn’t get any more simple than that. The criminals will be criminals whether we give up our freedom or not. The difference is that we will be defenceless against them. No thanks. But you can if you want.
            Almost every gun owner has had guns their whole lives, as did their parents and their parent’s parents and so on. And nothing ever happens to them. There is no reason to further restrict them or regulate them. They are not part of the problem. The only problem here is your biased views. Your irrational hate of inanimate objects has clouded your judgement. It’s too bad that you aren’t doing this because you care about the loss of human life. You only care about hating our rights and calling us names like a two year old would do. You couldn’t care less about the victims. You would rather create more victims by disarming everyone.

    • Since clowns are separated by makeup from non-clowns, maybe only those who are hiding need guns anyway.
