Approximately 70% of the over 300 mass-shootings in the United States for the year 2015 were committed by young black men with ties to crime

That number would actually be over 80%, except that journalists are terrified to mention the perpetrators’ and victims’ race. Up to 80% of the victims of mass shootings are also black. In other words, for the year 2015, of the 338 verifiable mass-shootings in America  90% were white-free. The myth that mentally unstable white men are the source of most mass shootings is simply false.Mass Shooting Situations

Quick Facts

  • Street crime, gangs, drugs and the like, accounts for 87% of mass shootings.
  • In 60% of the mass shooting cases, despite plenty of witnesses, the perpetrators are never identified by police because of the “No Snitch” culture existing in the black community.
  • Semi-automatic handguns are by far the weapons of choice. Shotguns and assault rifles are rarely used.
  • Only 9% of shooters had a confirmed right to own a firearm, the rest likely obtained their guns illegally.
  • Almost all the weapons recovered by police were stolen.
  • Mass shootings rarely cross racial barriers. Blacks shoot blacks. Hispanics shoot Hispanics, and whites shoot whites.
  • Mental illness, terrorism, and hate crimes combined accounted for only 5% of mass shootings.
  • Of the three mass shootings that are classified as hate crimes, white males committed two and two Hispanic males committed one.
  • Journalists are more likely to mention the color of the car involved in a drive-by shooting than the color of the shooter or victims.Population Makeup of America

In 2015 America suffered a mass shooting, an event where four or more people are shot or killed, nearly every day. While America’s black community is disproportionately responsible for and affected by mass shootings, do not fall into the trap of believing that race plays a part in these crimes. Blacks are not genetically predisposed to random acts of violence. Prison Population by RaceMass Shooters by Race

While modern black culture is certainly not doing itself any favors, the broader problem is global devaluation of the family. Family is the foundation of civil society. A man and a woman marry, rear children, and build a life within a community. Globally, birthrates for unmarried women are skyrocketing. An ever-increasing number of children are being raised in homes where there is no parent stability. Shack-up boyfriends come and go, mothers are either working all the time or on welfare, and the children are left to rear themselves.Unwed Mothers

America’s black community, unfortunately for them, is at the forefront of this new global culture that has shrugged off the responsibilities of marriage and child rearing. Well over half of all black American’s under the age of forty were born to unmarried mothers. Almost 70% of blacks under the age of twenty-five were born to unmarried mothers. The rate for Hispanic children has recently gone over 50%, and white children are closing in on 40%. The number of American children born out-of-wedlock has nearly quadrupled since 1970.Mass Shootings Victims Race

Family is where is all starts. Parenting is the single greatest responsibility most people will ever undertake. Children learn all they know about survival from their parents. Parents teach children that rules and laws actually have a valid purpose. Parents teach that respect for authority is actually important. Children glean wisdom from the experiences, successes and failures of their elders.

Of the 25 mass shootings that involved domestic disputes, 12 were murder/suicides.

Parents supply a safe place for children with food on the table. For rich or for poor, it is every parent’s responsibility to use what tools they have to provide their child with a life as close to a Norman Rockwell painting as possible. My grandmother used to say, “I cannot help being poor, but there is no excuse for being dirty as long as you can afford a bar of soap.” She was a widow with five children at the height of the Great Depression and did not have two nickels to rub together, but she kept a neat, tidy home and made darn sure her children went to school with food in their stomach so they could learn. Mothers and fathers are supposed to help sons and daughters navigate the difficulties of childhood and adolescence so they can safely reach adulthood. When parents abdicate those responsibilities, something else will fill that void and that something is all too often gangs and crime.

While radical Muslim terrorism accounts for the worst mass shooting of 2015, most of the time it is gang warfare.

Instead of being stranded on a deserted island, as in William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, these children find themselves surviving a hopeless existence in a lawless urban jungle. They band together in roving gangs that live by the feud and die by the feud. They terrorize their neighbors, stay out to all hours partying with illegal drugs and alcohol, and they fight amongst themselves, wantonly killing anyone for any perceived slight. Most have criminal records by the time they reach the age of majority. They take their battles to concerts, to city parks and playgrounds, shooting babies, pregnant women, the elderly, and anyone else standing in the way of their vendetta without so much as a second thought. Collateral damage means nothing to these young men and they use a form of urban terrorism to silence those who would testify against them.

"The mission of the Brady organization is to create a safer America for all of us that will lead to a dramatic reduction in gun deaths and injuries." They rank each state for the quality of their guns laws.

President Obama’s solutions, such as blocking legal sales of firearms to people on the government’s “No Fly List,” criminalizing the private sales of firearms, and authorizing friends and family to put a “mental health block” on the legal purchases will do nothing to stop this problem. There is not a country on Earth where criminals are not well armed, no matter the law. If President Obama really wants to stop mass shootings, he should start by going home to Chicago and holding a peace summit with all the black gang leaders. He should hold up his own family as a shining example of how love, marriage, education and good parenting can stop the cycle of hopelessness and violence. Otherwise the solutions will fail and the cycle will continue.Ten Worst Cities for Mass Shootings

Congressman Earl Blumenauer’s Top 12 Reasons for Restricting Gun Rights

On February 11, 2015, Congressman Earl Blumenauer sent his constituents an open letter about his coming plan to undermine America’s 2nd Amendment rights. While I have paraphrased, I believe I am accurately recounting his 12 fundamental reasons America needs further restrictions on gun ownership.

  1. People do not kill people, guns kill people. Enough is enough! Murders and suicides committed with guns would never happen if it were not for those damn guns. Just look at all the countries around the world where citizens do not have the right to bear arms. They are happy and safe!

    There are 17 nations where the rate of lawful gun ownership exceeds 25 firearms per 100 in population. The average rate of violent death and suicide in these countries is 2.2 per 100,000 and 9.9 per 100,000 respectively. The US rates are 6.4 and 10.3 respectively. For "disarmed" nations, those below 25 lawfully owned firearms per 100 in population, the average risk of violent death rises to 13.1 per 100,000, while suicides remain flat at 9.4 per 100,000. The presence of lawfully owned firearms appears to have a chilling effect on global violence and no affect on global suicide rates.

The presence of lawfully owned firearms appears to have a chilling effect on global violence and no affect on global suicide rates.

  2. In the last 20 years American gun ownership has risen 50% while America’s murder rate has dropped 50%. Enough is enough! Guns are the problem!

    As you can see, there is no correlation between rate of gun ownership and murder rates in America. Weapons are not the underlying cause of violence in our society.

  3. Self-strangulation – suicide by hanging – is by far the most popular and effective method of suicide for the rest of world. Why not in America? Enough is enough! Now that marijuana is legal, let’s make more rope!

    Of the five most populated nations on Earth, only China has a combined violent death/suicide rate lower than America's

  4. Guns account for 0.043% (548 of 127,792) of accidental deaths in the United States in 2012. Enough is enough! 548 “accidents” for 300,000,000 guns is just too much! Guns are much worse than automobiles and tobacco when it comes to safety! You have never heard of tobaccular homicide or tobaccular suicide, have you? No you haven’t! Therefore guns are bad!
  5. The sum total of all gun deaths (suicide, murder, accidental) does not make America’s Top 10 leading causes of death. Enough is enough! Guns are not a leading cause of death in America, and I look like a total idiot for publicly saying they are!
  6. The NRA is preventing Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies from enforcing current laws. How they physically stop the D.C. police remains a mystery, but D.C. has the highest murder rate and lowest gun ownership rate in America. It is a vast, right-wing conspiracy to embarrass D.C. politicians for making it illegal to carry empty brass shell casings in the District of Columbia, and the NRA is behind it all. Enough is enough! We need more laws and restrictions so that current laws can finally be enforced. Get the NRA out of politics!
  7. A father should never be able to pass an heirloom firearm down to his son without first doing a criminal background check. Enough is enough! My dad took me fishing, and that was good enough for me! Beat that rifle into a plowshare and go tie flies!
  8. If we close the “private sale loophole,” criminals will stop illegally selling guns to other criminals. Enough is enough! My proposed legislation will, for the first time in American history, make it illegal for criminals to break the law! Especially those crazy, right-wing, extremist D.C. politicians who defend the Constitution and still believe in the Balance of Powers therein!
  9. As a society, we have decided to let the mentally ill roam free and unchecked, and they account for over 60% of total gun-related deaths. That is 25% of Americans responsible for 60% of gun deaths. Enough is enough! Get rid of guns so the mentally ill can remain free-range!
  10. Of America’s 15 major trading partners, only 5 have a combined suicide/violent death rate worse than America’s. Enough is enough! If we cannot beat the pants off all of our trading partners when it comes to violence and suicide, we do not deserve to be the globe’s #1 economic power!
  11. Of 192 countries around the world, America ranks 92 for its violent death rate at 6.5 violent deaths per 100,000 in population. For 2014,Guatemala was #1 with 74.9 deaths per 100,000. Bahrain was #192 with no violent deaths per capita. Enough is enough! America is the greatest country on Earth and we need to have a zero violence rate, just like Bahrain and the Roman Catholic Holy See!

  12. Some guns, like fully automatic weapons, heavy artillery, tanks, missiles and bombs, are just not safe for public spaces. Enough is enough! We need to get military grade weaponry out of our schools and malls. Weapons like semi-automatic 22LR squirrel guns.

My fellow Americans, guns are the problem, not violence. Guns are the problem, not suicide. Rape, domestic abuse, child abuse, sex-slavery, beatings, muggings, drug addiction and stabbings all pale when compared to the problems America suffers because of its 300,000,000 lawfully, responsibly, privately owned guns.
