Statistics Don’t Lie, But Gun Grabbers Do

Gun grabbers love to cite a statistic they claim bolsters their argument that America’s murder rate is higher than other developed countries, particularly European countries. The figure they cite is 4.7 cases of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter per 100,000 inhabitants.

Compared to the U.K.’s rate of 1.2 per 100,000 and France’s 1.1 per 100,000, that figure does seem high. But here’s a little nugget they won’t tell you. It comes thanks to some work by the American Thinker’s Randall Hoven, who has dug into the FBI’s crime statistics: Remove the murders committed by blacks and illegal aliens and the U.S. murder rate is 1.0 per 100,000, in line with Sweden’s, another country the gun grabbers will hold up in comparison.

Why Was Zimmerman Carrying?

There have been a lot questions posed and comments made by pundits, the elected class and observers before, during and after the George Zimmerman trial that displayed an agenda on the part of some and a profound ignorance on the part of others. One of the worst is the question: Why was Zimmerman carrying a gun that night? Why indeed?

That the question would be posed by the gun grabbing punditry is not surprising. Their agenda is to muddle the understanding of the citizenry and create a sense that carrying a weapon is not only unusual, it’s downright weird. That the question would be repeated by the citizenry demonstrates the gun grabbers’ efforts have been successful and the citizenry is becoming increasingly ignorant.
