    What?!? Are you implying that liberals are manipulating facts to push their agenda?!? Say it isn't so...

    [/sarcasm]

    Some Americans and other idiots cannot fathom the use of a firearm to ensure security. One of the dumbest things this country did was disarm Afghans following the war there. We promised them we would protect them, and now we've left them high, dry and disarmed and we're nowhere to be found. Taking an Afghan's AK is tantamount to taking someone's cell phone in the Western world. I would argue that it's even worse, given that no one needs their cell phone to survive (they just feel they do).

    I have no idea how true it is. But I've seen a few memes about the muderrate if you removed NYC, Chicago, LA, and Detroit? From the list we fall down to the bottom 3-4 of countries in the world in murder rates.

    I recall having seen a write up about that as well. If we took the top 4 or 5 cities (and primarily the inner cities where a lot of gang violence festers) that the US would be one of the most peaceful countries on the planet. Similarly, if you took South Central and dumped it into Tokyo, they'd be one of the most violent. Can't recall where I saw it though.

    The worst part about these statistics is that suicides are lumped in with violent crime murders in the US. It varies every year but usually ONE HALF of the violent crime killings are suicides!

    If a person wants to end his/her life, that's a personal decision and it's their own choice. It is intolerable that our Rulers use these suicides for political fodder by classifying the suicides exactly the same as violent murders! I can't think of many things that are so blatantly false and manipulative!

    Next time you see those US murder statistics, cut our figures in 1/2 and THAT will give you a more accurate picture of our crime rates as compared to other nations.

    The worst part is they almost never compare general murder rates or even violent crime rates. Yes countries that heavily restrict gun ownership have less gun murders but those have shifted to knives and other weapons and usually the rate magnifies (especially in places like England where even defending yourself can be criminal). Shit drives me nuts that they focus so narrowly on the method of death when it really doesn't matter because dead is dead.

    I think most leftists that talk about international murder rates intentionally only discuss those committed with firearms... because such a list would necessarily force the U.S. to be near the top due to the availability of guns.

    Now compare murder rates overall per capita regardless of how it was committed. Only a liberal values deaths committed by guns. If I had a loved one that was murdered by a thug, I would care less what weapon was used. Or what freaking FLAG he or she sported.
