The Way of the Gun

Bob Clasen

There are over 300 million guns in the United States. The number of mass shootings is extremely low, which is why they make the news. Obviously not every gun results in mass shootings. It would be impossible to seize all the guns in the United States, even if it was attempted.

The fact that there are so many guns, but so few mass shootings shows that it is not guns that cause mass shootings, but some other factor. The factor is obviously the shooter.

Government should focus its efforts on keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

Tim adds:

In fact the U.S. is not very high in terms of mass shooting as a percentage of our population.The U.S. ranks 28th in the world for gun violence. I would add that Brazil, with near total gun control, ranks number 1.

And for mass shootings we rank 59th. This in a country with open borders allowing criminal gangs easy entrance and with soft-on-crime prosecutors and judges. It's amazing our numbers aren't far worse. Oh, and we let the insane wander around loose since liberals decided it was inhumane to incarcerate them. Many mass shootings are done by the insane.

I would add that if we ban guns these people will use firebombs or poison gas. It's not that hard to kill people if you are motivated.

We've tried gun bans in the past. We had the assault rifle ban, which saw zero decrease in gun violence. And we'd tried such bans in our past history, notably as part of the black codes.

I wrote about it here.

In the final analysis this is a breakdown of the moral order. We have excused violence as "acceptable" or "justified" and have taught children they should have no limits on them. What did we expect? Most mass shootings are people committing suicide and wanting to be remembered by taking a bunch of other people with them. A God-fearing person wouldn't do that. It's what the atheism and nihilism of our current age has wroght.

1 Tim is absolutely correct, and I'll just point out what he didn't, which is that the same group which has pushed the breakdown of our moral order is the same group that's pushing for more gun control -- the Left. If the Left were to be ignored in everything it tries to bring about, the country (and the world) would be a much better place.

2 Exactly right Dana. The left broke America then when the violence that they have helped foster and promote spills out of control they try to take away the only means of defense that people may have. And we are supposed to listen to these jerks?  Notice how they never have a  single solitary proposal other than gun control. They are like broken records with that.

That's because they know if they can get the guns there is nothing to stop them.
