Gun Sales Up, Violent Crime Down
More irrefutable proof that as John Lott Jr. wrote, “MORE GUNS LESS CRIME”

Yes in spite of all the anti-gun laws and restrictions, that citizens of California have, regarding their inalienable “RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS” as well as all the gun buy backs of a few non-op broken and antique rusty guns that haven’t been fired in a hundred years, the sales of new guns have risen dramatically not only in California but nation wide, increasing the number of (GUN ON THE STREET) as the hate American Communists like to refer to it, by hundreds of thousands. And yet the violent crime is subsequently down by thousands, again not only in
but in the Nation. Kind’a blows a 50
caliber hole in the hate American Communists GUN-CONTROL efforts in the brain-dead
logic of more guns more crime, doesn’t it?
Any independent thinking human being can figure out that those brainwashed followers of the liberal elitists, are by design encouraging and enabling these mass murders in order to demonize the US Constitution, especially the part where it says that citizens having arms, is for the security of FREEDOM! You see what they don’t tell you is, that they intend to take away your FREEDOM. Gun Control is all about CONTROL and as long as you have the guns…you are in control. This stands in the way of a CONTROLLING GOVERNMENT. Care to take a wild guess at who knew and understood this in the late 1700’s? If you said the Constitutional Architects, congratulations, you are an independent thinker!
While officials are celebrating these programs and saying that these events will make
California streets safer, gun sales there
have shot up significantly in the past 10 years. In 2002, 350,000 guns were sold in California, but last
year, over 600,000 were sold. So a
couple thousand guns were turned in, but that’s nothing compared to the
hundreds of thousands bought last year alone.
What’s also telling is the overall drop
in crime that directly corresponded to the
increase in gun sales:
“Gun deaths and injuries have dropped sharply in
, even as the
number of guns sold in the state has risen, according to new state data…. During that same period, the number of
California hospitalizations due to gun injuries declined from about 4,000
annually to 2,800, a roughly 25 percent drop, according to hospital records
collected by the California
Department of Public Health. Firearm-related
deaths fell from about 3,200 annually to about 2,800, an 11 percent drop, state
health figures show. Most of the drop in
firearm-related injuries and deaths can be explained by a well-documented,
in violent crime. The number of California injuries and deaths attributed to
accidental discharge of firearms also has fallen. The number of suicide deaths involving
firearms has remained roughly constant.” California
THE BOTTOM LINE: Expect the gun control advocates to attribute any drop in violent crime in
to these fraudulent gun buyback programs.
But what they don’t tell you is how many people are turning in their
guns because they’re old rusty and defunct.
Some of their guns aren’t even worth $25, so the prospect of getting
$100 in groceries sounds like a great deal in place of a rusty piece of useless
iron. Moreover, what they also don’t
tell you is how many criminals are turning in guns that they used to commit
crimes with. Since there are “no
questions asked,” the police are taking the possible evidence in a crime and
destroying it for the criminal.
Destroying potential evidence in a crime, IS A CRIME!
And as for the rest of the gun owners who turned in their viable weapons, they’re only making themselves more vulnerable to the criminals who didn’t turn in their guns because they intend to commit more crimes with them.
These fraudulent do-gooder showy programs have little to no effect on violent crime rates. However, what is having an effect is the sale of guns to law-abiding citizens in
who understand that when seconds count,
the police are minutes away. As gun
sales have increased by 100 percent the people shot with guns have dropped by
25 percent. According to that bit of
logic, if we increased the sale of fire arms by 400 percent we should reduce
the violent crime rate of ‘murder by gun’, by 100 percent. ‘Then’ what would the CONTROL FREAKS DO? Yeah I
know…wishful thinking! Incidentally,
that is what the sheriff in my county did; he issued a CCW license to anyone
that applied and passed the FBI background investigation and the training
program and exam. The applications were
nearly overwhelming. The violent crime
rate dropped by 31 percent in one year…
