Give Up Our Guns?

One writer thinks he’s stumbled upon the secret to persuading millions of Americans.
LEWIS MORRIS
SEPTEMBER 16, 2021

“Leftists have been working for years to chisel away at our Second Amendment rights. Their most favored tactic is gun control, creating more restrictive regulations and outlawing certain types of firearms.” … “Frum’s assessment is that gun owners can be convinced to give up their guns if they are shamed into thinking that gun ownership is socially unacceptable, much like the movements to reduce smoking and drunk driving.”

>Half of the almost 48,000 suicides committed in 2019 were carried out by gun.

so if they used rope we'd be talking about rope control?!
we don't have a gun crime problem.
we have a race problem.
the numbers are obvious.

it's like covid right? we're talking about the 30% of people who aren't vaxxed ruining it for everyone? well how about the 6% committing over 50% of all murders, 60% of all gun crimes in general?

and what about the cops? did you know the arrest rate for a non-fatal shooting in chicago is 5%?! 5. percent.

fatal shootings it's at 17%.

nationally, it's at 40%.

that's right, if you commit a murder, right now, odds are you would get away with it! no wonder people keep doing it! the biggest lie is that police do anything about crime. the way people on this forum talk, you'd think they could catch anyone committing any crime. there's an awful lot of people here who don't understand there's simply too data. there's just too many things happening.

the *majority* of murderers go free. you think they care about you?!
like think about how often things like "crime rate" get mentioned. but if we're talking about getting things done, isn't *total* crime a bigger deal? if police forces are expanding, crime rates are lower, but *total crime* is still higher, isn't that a pretty poor job of policing?
