Thursday Theories – Does more civilians having guns = a safer country?

Nope, lol…

Last week I saw advertising for a documentary about should Universities/Colleges allow on campus.

One of the arguments for it, is that civilians having guns = protections for more people. Except this is not the case, even by US standards.

“With about 121 firearms in circulation for every 100 residents, the United States is by far the most heavily armed society in the world, according to the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey, a research group.”

There were 14,400 gun-related homicides in 2019. Figures from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show there were a total of more than 38,300 deaths from guns in 2019 – of which more than 23,900 were suicides.

Now, before anyone says anything, suicide with a gun, is still a death by gun. It’s suicide with a gun. So still a death with a gun. So, death by gun. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have had this “argument” with some Americans that think death by gun, shouldn’t include suicide. Even though it is a death by gun. It’s not death by overdose or lying on a train track, it’s with a gun.

Killings involving a gun accounted for nearly three quarters of all homicides in the US in that year (2019).

That’s a larger proportion of homicides than in Canada, Australia, England and Wales, and many other countries.

Like the guy said for the documentary “If more guns made countries safer, America should be the safest country”…and it’s really not, haha.

The one thing that I have noticed that a lot of gun “enthusiasts” will also pick and choose from the 2A.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

I’m just going to pick out a couple of things from here.

well regulated – So not because Bobby Joe wants a gun.

Militia – a military force that is raised from the civil population to supplement a regular army in an emergency. So again, not Bobby Joe who wants to play Army.

being necessary to the security of a free State – Once again, not because Bobby Joe needs to go to the supermarket to get some bread…or to get more guns, lol

Silly Bobby Joe, lol

#Walkout

This is for those “more gun supporters” whose biggest ‘problem’ with students doing a walk out is that they will ruin their Education … Even though most Colleges have said it wouldn’t affect college applications:

Flowers

You can also:

Go back to High School at any time…You can even get an Education in jail!

So let’s be honest here, what are they REALLY concerned about?

Did you know the Constitution has been amended at least 27 times?

1) It is about Guns
2) It is about a President who blames “mental health” and then destroys the mental health system…To get back at the previous President…Because the current President has a maturity of a 5 year old…and even 5 year olds have more compassion!
3) It is about the clear anger that is in America
4) It is about more than ONE issue.
5) How dare ANYONE blame the students, parents and School who were the VICTIMS of an extremely broken system, and tell them to “shut up”…HOW VERY DARE YOU!
6) Anyone who wants to an assault rifle to protect their family…Who have you pissed off enough to warrant that?
7) When it’s your time to go, it’s your time…If you are a responsible gun owner, then your guns should be locked away anyways…What, you think someone who breaks in is going to allow you to grab your gun?
8) In fact the Constitution has been amended at least 27 times.
9) No one except the military…Needs a military gun
10) Protecting Guns over Children’s lives…In anti-god, anti-love, anti-everything good.

I hope students EVERYWHERE walk out on April the 20th…
