Piers Morgan’s Blitheringly Idiotic Gun Ban Drive

Piers Morgan has a passion for banning firearms.  His most frequently cited statistic is that the United Kingdom’s firearms murder rate dropped from thousands annually all the way down to the double digits (less than 100).  Sounds terrific, right?  Let’s ban all firearms now, right?

How Piers Morgan LIES
(click for full-size)

Well, not so fast.  You see, Piers Morgan lies.  He lies to you by using the term, “firearms murder rate,” “gun murders,” or “murders by firearms.”  He intentionally (possibly just stupidly) ignores murders which occur as the result of violent crime.  Speaking of which…

Piers Morgan fails to mention the fact that the UK’s violent crime rate more than tripled after they banned nearly all private ownership of firearms.  Apparently, a disarmed citizenry is far more susceptible to the other violent crimes of rape, robbery and aggravated assault.  Furthermore, since most murders are a result of violent crime at its worst, when their violent crime rate tripled, so did their non-firearms murder rate.

Put simply, the U.K. reduced their firearms murder rate but increased their non-firearms murder rate.

THE QUESTION:  Did the overall effect of the UK gun ban result in fewer murders overall or did the resulting tripling of the UK’s violent crime rate actually lead to more murders overall?  A related question involves how that would translate to gun bans here in the United States.  Would gun bans actually save lives, or would it cause violent crime — including murders related to violent crime, to rise?

To answer that question, I consulted with the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.  UCR “has been the starting place for law enforcement executives, students of criminal justice, researchers, members of the media, and the public at large seeking information on crime in the nation. The program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet the need for reliable uniform crime statistics for the nation. In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics” (Source).

Specifically, I examined their vaunted Table 1:  Crime in the United States by Volume and Rate per 100,000 inhabitants, 1997-2016.  This table provides both the raw numbers as well as the rate per 100,000 inhabitants for all violent crimes as well as the breakdown into murders, rape, robbery and aggravated assault.  It also provides the raw numbers and rates for non-violent property crimes, including burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft.

Open Letter from We the People

We the People of the United States of America have serious grievances against Barack Hussein Obama.  These grievances range from his own self-admitted ineligibility for the office of the Presidency to the many high crimes (felonies) and misdemeanors he and those he has appointed have committed while in office, most of which are grossly un-Constitutional, and several of which have directly or indirectly resulted in the unlawful deaths of Americans both at home and abroad.

This letter requires action from all of us.  A fellow patriot put this letter together for all of us to distribute on our blogs,Facebook walls, e-mail and mailing lists, and to send to your elected representatives at both the State and Federal levels via e-mail, fax or snail mail. Tweet a link to this page, along with terms such as “Obama impeachment.”  Forward it to your local and national news agencies, demanding they cover the story.

Together we can make a difference. So lets get it done!

To Whom It May Concern:

We The People find ourselves in a very uncomfortable place and we look to you as the representatives of our country for the answers we seek. Please know that there are many millions who share these feelings, and if the elections had been conducted in a fair and non-fraudulent manner, the results would have reflected our concerns.  Below, you will find a collaborative list of questions, and we would greatly appreciate receiving your answers in a timely manner. We will make our decisions accordingly, as this is still the land of the free, and our country’s future is at stake.

Why with wide-spread voter fraud, can this election not be contested? Why are we bound to an agreement reached in 1981?

On Benghazi:

Why were security teams actually removed in the months and weeks leading up to 9/11 when the violence was escalating and the people on the ground said more was needed?
We can prove Obama had knowledge of the attack, as well as the resources to send for protection but he still denied vital help. These are impeachable offenses. What is your stance on this? Do you agree that this President needs to be impeached? What are you doing about Benghazi?

Regarding Obamacare:

There is so much that is being enacted behind closed doors. We request that there be no more secrets. We should be able to know the stipulations in their entirety and We the People should be able to vote on it. We need the specifics. The doctors have no idea how they will be paid/reimbursed after January. The hospitals are flying blind, unsure of what they will be fined for. It is hard to run a business, as many know, without a business plan. Do the States have the right to reject Obamacare? We need specifics about ALL taxes we will incur, including 1% on every banking transaction on all bank accounts. We also require specifics on the Over 70 Group.

Concerning our Military:

How do you feel about Obama firing 20,000 Marines so he can give $6 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars to Muslims for ‘green’ energy’? What accountability does this President have? How about the debt ceiling? Raising it will give this Administration more funds to waste on our demise. Is the House going to hold true to their promises?

The FCC is directed by five commissioners who are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. This is a serious problem, as you know. Do states have the right to secede, as Texas is in process of attempting to do now?
Finally, we have condensed the list of grievances down to those we feel are most important and would like answers to the following, as to what is being DONE to remedy these atrocities in our country.

Dept. Of Interior, Green Energy Fraud…. what is being done here?

Fast and Furious- what is being done about this? Gun running?

Seal Team 6 shot down
College transcripts of Barack Hussein Obama
Record number of Generals, Admirals retired.
Give-away of Alaska lands to Russia
Retirement of 20,0000 marines
Give away of drilling rights in the Gulf
Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the White House
Hamas training bases on the border
Surrender of sovereign lands in Arizona to drug Cartels
Drone attacks on American Citizens, arrests of our troops on the battlefield for taking out targets of opportunity to appease host Muslim nations…. and the lies about Libya during the NATO operation…

Why do we have a Taliban lawyer in the Justice Dept?
NDAA, and the UN making decisions AGAINST the U.S. Constitution, most notably with the NDAA’s “indefinite detention of U.S. citizens” in violation of Constitutionally-mandated due process of law and the U.N.’s Gun Ban Treaty, a direct violation of our 2nd Amendment rights.
The use of the Foreign Desk to buy our own debt to generate fees for Goldman Sachs.

What is the status of this process?  Why has Congress refused to bring charges against the criminal currently sitting in the White House?  Why would we let anyone like Obama get away with committing such a large number of high crimes and misdemeanors, most notably of which was his lying about his country of birth, a fact which he later admitted, in public“First of all, it’s true, I’m not an American.  I was not born in Hawaii.  I was not born in the United States of America.  I come from Kenya.” – President Barack Hussein Obama, shortly after he was elected in 2008 (short link:  http://youtu.be/edyJ4oS8kz0).  This self-admitted fact alone is a gross violation of the Constitutionally-mandated requirement to be President of the United States of America and grounds for immediate removal from office:  “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President…”Article II, Section 1.

I realize this is a lengthy list. However, it does not even cover an eighth of our concerns, and was difficult to condense. This will be widely publicized, along with your response.

The American people need and deserve answers, and we would appreciate you taking the time to give them to us. We ask, however, that your responses be clear and concise, and that you spare us from a long drawn out diatribe that has little to do with the questions being asked, as we will take that as you do not think we are important enough to take seriously, and act accordingly with our support!

By the way, Speaker Boehner, having your flunkies hang up on me mid-sentence when I called your office to ask you or your staff just one of these questions is totally unacceptable.

Thank you for your time and attention to this urgent matter! We believe that you take these issues as seriously as we do, and for that, you have our deep respect and heartfelt gratitude.

Respectfully,
The American People
