Now that “Fast and Furious” apparently didn’t do the job in achieving Gun Control for Obama and crew, a gift was given with the Newtown killings. For those of us who might be interested in the History of the Government and its role in deadly killings I have done a brief review. One of the worst was the Clinton’s debacle. Now that the two of them have been rehabilitated by the MSM, I highly suggest taking a look in my “way back posts” of the Clintons where over 80 were slaughtered.
From an earlier post of mine.Clinton’s and their Waco slaughter
It has been the Federal Government that has a history of violence without condemnation from the left. A great read on this history can be found here Little Akex in Wonderland. The spawn of Oklahoma City was created. For Ruby Ridge Storm Front. Washington Examiner has a piece: How Clinton exploited the Oklahoma bombing
Those on the left, like Clinton, seemed to be longing for the violence to come. Perhaps because they realize they are going to lose power without spilling a single drop of blood, and there is nothing they can do about it. At least if they were to incite violence, the government would have a reason to step in and shut down the protests. VA Right
Some of the children murdered in the Waco Massacre by Bill & Hillary Clinton and the ATF and FBI. Who are the Terrorists? From: Clintons and their Waco Slaughter:
Mrs Clinton grew more and more impatient as the Waco stand-off came to dominate the headlines during the early months of the Clinton administration, said Bell. It was she, according to Bell’s sources, who pressured a reluctant Janet Reno to act.
“Give me a reason not to do this,” Reno is said to have begged aides shortly before orders were issued for the final assault.
Western Hero sends us these factoids.
All Bloomberg lacks is an armband and a Charlie Chaplin mustache.
It is an emotional topic, and I can understand the gun-haters’emotional outbursts, but we must respond with charity and the facts.
Fact #1: Violent crime is down from 2000 to 2009, as is the use of a firearm in commission of a crime.
Here are a few excellent links:
Here is a link to an DOJ report:
Some excerpts from the report:
“For overall violent crime, firearms, knives, and other weapons were used in about equal proportions”
“Weapons were used in 22% of all violent crimes in 2009”
“Between 2000 and 2009, the overall rate of firearm violence declined from 2.4 to 1.4 victimizations per 1,000 persons age 12 or older (table 10).”
“Firearms were used in about 8% of all violent crime incidents in 2009.
During the 10-year period, about 6% to 9% of all violent crime incidents were committed with firearms”
Established facts and Christian charity must be our departure point in our search for answers.
