Under 10 percent of “March for our Lives” were under 18

 

So the usual suspects no doubt were involved with the so-called “march” in D.C. on Saturday. Less than 10 percent were under 18.  But no matter, once again, the siren call for our guns begins again. Now ammunition is under attack. Thanks to dear Wasserman-Schultz. No discussion of the failures of the government. The School, the Sheriff. I’ll add a few words from the NRA:

 

A sociologist on MSNBC threw cold water on all the media’s claims that the March For Our Lives protests were spontaneous and led by the nation’s children during a “Morning Joe” segment on Monday.

While Fisher tried to make it sound like these individuals were all potential voters, it is likely that many of those who showed up were simply run-of-the-mill liberal activists.

University of Maryland sociologist Dana Fisher conducted a study of the demographics of Saturday’s march in Washington, D.C., and discovered that only less than 10 percent of those in the crowd were under the age of 18.

The study was done by going through the crowds with tablets and conducting surveys of participants and then extrapolating trends from the data collected, according to Fisher.

Raising the age to buy guns at the age of 21?

 

Another feel good moment for the uninformed. Earlier I posted

The U. S. is 3rd in murders throughout the world.Take out 5 Democrat controlled cities, the United States is 4th FROM THE BOTTOM, in the ENTIRE world, for murders

So of course, the fly over country whose citizens don’t have the benefit of the so-called 4-6 minute response time from the police should give up our guns and now for good measure, raise the age for buying a gun to 21. That way, soldiers who stick out their neck and kill on our behalf on lands afar, come back and cannot buy a gun to go hunting. Makes perfect liberal sense don’t you think?

Well, well, well. This problem looks to be simple enough to solve. We keep hearing what a violent Nation we are. From these Stats, we simply need to eliminate these fine cities of their crimes. Most telling, these cities have some of the most strict gun control laws. This of course leaves their honest law-abiding citizens unable to protect themselves from the violent Riff Raff that the cities permit to dwell within.

USA puts out video of ‘possible’ modifications to Texas shooter’s rifle including a chain saw bayonet

Don’t expect the second part of that story to receive emphasis from the “mainstream” media, which has been on a jihad to ban America’s Rifle for years. The laws are in place that should have stopped the gunman from legally buying a gun. Period. In the video below, USA Today shows just how terrifying an AR-15 can be if you add various attachments — including a chainsaw bayonet. This appears to be completely on the level:

There really is such a thing as a chainsaw bayonet. Hey liberal media establishment, it is a joke:


You’ll have to pull my chainsaw out of my cold dead hands.

More fun here.

Australians give up 51,000 illegal firearms as 3-month amnesty ends

See how easy how the medicine goes down? You and I know the drill, I don’t have to sell you. But it is good to know how the few Democracies around the world are handling this gun thing. Would Trump please tell the Aussies not to count on us next time the Japanese come knocking on their door step?

Australians turned in 51,000 illegal firearms, ranging from 19th-century weapons to a rocket launcher, during a three-month amnesty that ended on Friday, Reuters reported. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the move had helped avert Las Vegas-style mass shootings. The cache represents about a fifth of illegal firearms and will be destroyed. It was Australia’s second amnesty since its worst-ever massacre, when a lone gunman killed 35 people in the island state of Tasmania in 1996. Those who still own such guns face jail time, and the government is pushing for harsher penalties for gun traffickers. H/T:  RT

51% of the Murders come from 2% of U.S. Counties

 

We keep hearing what a violent society we are. Of course this mantra comes on the heels of the latest effort at gun control coming our way. Zero Hedge has done an excellent job of looking at the Stats and has some fascinating information. Rather than dealing with facts, the left/media would gin us up into a rabid state regardless of the facts. Rather than efforting in taking away our guns, how about dealing with the illegal guns and activities in those areas? Another interesting point if you missed it More guns = more gun homicides? Nope.

There are some great graphs over at the link to the post and worth the visit:

This study shows how murders in the United States are heavily concentrated in very small areas. Few appreciate how much of the US has no murders each year.  Murder isn’t a nationwide problem.  It’s a problem in a very small set of urban areas, and any solution must reduce those murders.

The Distribution of Murders

The United States can really be divided up into three types of places. Places where there are no murders, places where there are a few murders, and places where murders are very common.

In 2014, the most recent year that a county level breakdown is available, 54% of counties (with 11% of the population) have no murders.  69% of counties have no more than one murder, and about 20% of the population. These counties account for only 4% of all murders in the country.

The worst 1% of counties have 19% of the population and 37% of the murders. The worst 5% of counties contain 47% of the population and account for 68% of murders.  Over half of murders occurred in only 2% of counties.  More at  Zero Hedge

More guns = more gun homicides? Nope.

Put this down as the chart of the day. When the left spins their tale, give them a copy of this.

A return tweet:

Here in Brazil we have total and absolute prohibition of all kinds of guns. Last year we had 70.000 murders This year we expect around 80k
