Bureau of Justice Statistics Homicide trends in the U.S.: Trends by race The Stats Don't Lie! When liberals talk about gun control, they always talk about the gun being the problem, but they NEVER talk about who is doing the majority of the killing. The majority of guns purchased legal are by White Americans between 30-60 (distant 2nd is Black and Latino Americans between 30-60). That is a fact. Yet the majority of Americans committing homicides are African Americans adolescents (teenages to 20s). The large percentage of the "Whites" committing homicide are White Mexican adolescents. Again the stats don't lie! In 2005 Homicides by Whites (which includes Arabs, White Latinos aka White Mexicans) was 3.5, Other (non-White Latinos and Asian) was 2.8 African Americans were 26.5 per 100,000!!! That is an eye-popping statistic! Bureau of Justice Statistics Homicide Trends in the United States: Trends in offending by race table Bureau of Justice Statistics Homicide trends in the U.S.: Trends by race The vast majority of gun violence by African Americans is gang and drug dealing related. So do you think the adolsent gang bangers and drug dealers are buying their guns legally?NO they are getting their guns ILLEGALLY!!! Many times they have AK 47 and other fully automatic illegal guns! Even take the 3.5 White Homicide rate, which includes Mexicans. The Majority of that homicide rate is committed by Latino gang-bangers who also get their guns illegally! Conclusion: When you enact strict gun control laws, like Chicago, then the majority of the people you are effecting are law abiding citizens. Liquor store owner, home invasion victims, elderly victims etc. Yes there are always nutcases that have no criminal record that gets a gun and kills bunch of people, but those are RARE cases that make headlines. There are also those cases where a child gets his parents legal gun and accidentally shoots himself or some essense (which are always avoidable with new safe and lock technology). But in the end, total gun control doesn't take the gun away from the criminals (see Britian and ESP VENEZUELA) it usually leaves the victim gunless/helpless and the criminals fully armed! But if we really want to tackle the gun problem we have to toss the PC shit out the widow and be honest with ourselves. African Americans who make up 15% of the population but the majority of gun homicide are the problem, not guns that Old White Men Clinging to Their Guns and Religion! Until we are honest with ourselves on the true culprits in the gun violence debate we will never have an honest solution. Libs please call me a racist, because I don't give a shit!
