Tyrants don’t want you to hear the truth, that’s what makes them tyrants.

By de Andréa
While anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is sending moving billboards around the country claiming that a measly “34 Americans are murdered with guns every day”, the mayor is selectively and deceivingly ignoring the fact that thousands of lives are saved every day because firearms are there when they are needed. You know, when seconds’ count the police are just minutes away!
Chairman Alan Gottlieb of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, cited research that places the number of lives saved ‘annually’ with firearms, at between 800,000 and 2.5 million --- frequently without even a shot being fired, that translates to lives saved that Bloomberg and his hate America cronies choose to ignore. Well… that and the alphabet soup media don’t think it makes interesting copy. The truth about thousands of lives saved each day is sometimes boring and mundane. It’s the bloody 34 bodies that make headline news.

If you take the estimates and divide them by 365, Gottlieb observed, you would realize that between 2,100 and 6,800 people successfully defend their own lives every day of the year with firearms in the United States. The majority of those incidents result in nobody being injured or killed, and that’s boring. In some cases where shots are fired by armed citizens, several lives are saved. Bloomberg and his tyrannical cronies at “Mayors Against Guns” evidently don't think the thousands of lives of gun owners are valuable enough to notice. He just wants to get rid of them any way he can.

Gottlieb co-authored America Fights Back: Armed Self-Defense in a Violent Age. The book details scores of cases in which legally-armed citizens successfully defended themselves from violent attack.
What Mayor Bloomberg is not telling you with his roving billboard, is that violent crime has declined during the same period when gun ownership in this country has skyrocketed, and the number of Americans legally licensed to carry concealed handguns has risen dramatically.
Today, more than 6.2 million private citizens are legally carrying concealed guns in more than 40 states, oooooh! Doesn’t that make you shudder, and gun ownership has risen to more than 100 million and yet according to FBI data, the violent crime rate has ‘decreased’. More Guns Less Crime by well known economist and number cruncher John Lott. Watch a C-Span interview with John Lott Two very important obvious truisms that one needs to know, law abiding citizens don’t murder people, and criminals don’t obey laws. I mean come on, stop smoking those funny cigarettes, clear your head for a change, and get sober so you can think straight. Oh! And guess what? Some of Bloomberg measly 34 murders per day would be thwarted if the victim were armed. But then some of those could also result in the would-be murderer killed in self-defense. Oh well! It would save the city some unnecessary court time.

That being said, if Bloomberg would stop sniffing those pretty poppies and were really interested in public safety rather than his hate America agenda of tyranny, he would park that truck and take all the money he is spending on billboards and fuel, and give it to local gun clubs for firearms safety training and education. And then he would grant a carry permit to every law abiding citizen in the the city of New York, then in two years when the FBI violent crime stats come out, watch the numbers go down. I would literally bet my life on it. Remember, when seconds’ count, the police are minutes away.

Oh! One last thing, if guns were banned in the U.S. as Obama and Bloomberg want --- one would have to add an average of 3000 more deaths per day to that measly 34 per day that Bloomberg is shouting about. Remember, criminals can’t read…not laws anyway. Do you really think they care about the safety of children??? Yeah right!

Gun control is not about safety my friend; it’s all about the loss of all your rights and freedoms. Read the Amendment “…being necessary for the security of a ‘free State’, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall ‘not be infringed’” This is why all these Hate America Social Communists want to ban citizens guns. Without arms in the hands of private citizens (as the Framers knew very well) you will not have the security of freedom, period.

Hug a gun owner and a soldier today and thank him/her for your right to choose…
