Here is a great article that gives gun stats from 2019 the most recent by the FBI and CDC. And it shoots the claims by the ANTI-GUN PEOPLE/GROUPS out of the water. And this article does give REAL FACTS as well. I got this from JPFO which I’m also a member of as well.
@Reloader54, thank you for posting this. A few weeks ago in another forum I posted some similar statistics. The point behind me posting that stuff was to add a little perspective around here. There are a lot of things that are going to get a person killed, and violent crime is really low on that list for most people, with some very notable exceptions that have a lot to do with where you live.
I got roundly crapped on for my comments by all the Wanna-Be John Wicks who are convinced that violent operators lurk around every corner. It was also probably because my presentation wasn’t as good as the article you referenced.
Like I said in the other post, if you want to live longer, you’ll do a lot for yourself if you exercise, eat sensibly, and lower your stress levels.
This is an interesting story that probably deserves its own topic. Members of this group or a similar one made the news a little bit ago for taking over an abandoned house. They argue that US laws don’t apply to them but in this case were arguing that federal law allowed them to transport their firearms legally through MA. Not sure how they can have it both ways? Definitely worth watching. Could be dangerous, could just be nut jobs, could be working the system, or maybe all of the above??
saw a sign [don’t know who wrote it ] "with all this “gun control” talk , I haven’t heard one politician say how they plan to take the guns from criminals, just law-abiding citizens. When will they realize criminals by nature don’t obey laws, make all you want they will ignore all.
