Obama Looks To Go Way Beyond Gun Control – Hints At Confiscation After Oregon Shootings
Even before the number of dead could be accurately counted, there was President Obama holding yet again another press conference and attempting to spin the heinous act committed by a deranged individual in the mass murder of 10-individuals at Umpqua Community College.
And once again the villain to this senseless carnage wasn’t the deranged and evil shooter, but rather the “gun”. And this time the president decided it was time to “GET POLITICAL”…as if to suggest that the countless and previous attacks on gun owning law-abiding citizens was somehow anything but.
Obama’s attempt to once again misinform the public by citing nations like Australia and Great Britain who have instituted massive gun laws and confiscation of all firearms within their respective countries.
So how is the “Firearms Act passed by the UK in 1997 working out? A recent report cites that Britain was “the most violent country in Europe.”
They also reported that Britain’s home figures showed “the UK [had] a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa.”
And during this same time period firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicides began plummeting in America however the decrease in violent crime did not correlate with a gun ban but with a rapid expansion in the number of guns privately owned.
In short the more guns owned by “law abiding” citizens, the less gun violence, which fell from 6.6 per 100,000 in 1993 to 3.6 per 100,000 in 2000 and finally to 3.2 per 100,000 in 2011.
