Be much Tougher on Criminals

- Not just Tough on Crime

The Muslim terrorist killed around fifty people in the Orlando nightclub, a gun-free massacre zone by law. Although ex-President Obama obviously knew the purported "gun-free" zones in San Bernardino, the Charleston AME Church, Umpqua College... increased the slaughter, he wanted even more "gun-free" massacre zones. Does he agree with his ObamaCare Professor Gruber who said "the American people are too stupid to understand the difference?" all Open Page in a new Tab.

Democrats want yet more gun controls to reduce the chances criminals and terrorists meet any armed resistance when they rob, murder and rape innocent citizens. But are they really "common sense" as President Obama said? What do you think the disadvantages might be?

Many women are naturally concerned about defending themselves and their children from violent criminals and predators. Was Hillary Clinton's election failure connected with her denial of both men and women's need and constitutional right to armed self-defense?

1. Bureaucrats who carry

The Feds under ex-President Obama armed 67 federal agencies unaffiliated with the Department of Defense, such as Agriculture, EPA, HHS, NOAA, Small Business Administration and even the Smithsonian Institution. There are now more federal paper-pushers authorized to carry firearms than US Marines! Shouldn't your citizens also be encouraged to defend themselves from violent criminals and terrorists? As a law-abiding citizen you have a choice: Do you submit to any orders which contravene the Constitution Obama pledged to uphold? Or do you respect the Constitution, the foundation of prosperity, law and order in the USA?

2. The police know how to reduce casualties...

Would as many as nine people have died in the historic AME Black Church shooting tragedy in Charleston, ten people at Umpqua College, fourteen at the San Bernardino Christmas party, etc., etc. if a law-abiding responsible citizen had been armed?

The vast majority of police do NOT think so. In the PoliceOne survey of over 15,000 law enforcement professionals: all Open Page in a new Tab

"A full 86 percent feel that casualties would have been reduced ... in recent tragedies like Newtown and Aurora if a legally-armed citizen was present."

Some cities as well as some police chiefs distrust even their law-abiding citizens to be armed - and yet wonder why so many of their citizens distrust the police in return... Rather focus on reducing injury to your citizens not spurious partisan political ideology, become even more proactive - discourage violent criminals instead!

Murdered African-American Senator Pinckney voted to ensure his church is a gun-free massacre zone and tragically suffered the consequences - along with eight fellow parishioners. If the slain Democratic Senator had survived, would the attack have changed his mind like Ohio African-American Democratic State Representative Pastor Michael Debose? Open Page in a new Tab

3. Black GUNS Matter

"Gun control is a sham. It's not about gun control. It's about people control," says Maj Toure founder of Black Guns Matter (NO connection to Black Lives Matter). "It's about trying to convince people that somehow the government is going to be responsible for your safety. That's the equivalent of saying:

"Hey, we have fires. Take all of the fire extinguishers out of your home because if there's a fire, the firemen will just come."

But what if they don't come in time? Martin Luther King's home was always guarded by armed men and although a pastor, Dr. King was denied a concealed-carry permit in 1956. Civil rights activist Daisy Bates carried a .32-caliber handgun in her purse. "Time and again, guns have proven pivotal to the African American quest for freedom." Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas - also African-American - fully agrees. African-American statesman Frederick Douglass proposed: "a good revolver" when asked in 1850 what he believed to be the best response to the Fugitive Slave Act. Gun rights protected many blacks during the civil rights movement - and would have protected the innocent black Americans in Senator Pinckney's AME church if he hadn't voted against armed defense from illegal gun violence today...

4. With more legal guns, there are fewer defenseless citizens

Why do Edgewater in Florida, Calhoun and Kennesaw in Georgia, Mauldin in South Carolina, and Belton in Texas all enjoy such low violent crime? Few if any violent career criminals to prey on their citizens! They didn't get rid of their violent criminals by encouraging their law-abiding citizens to be able to defend their families. But Kennesaw did and violent crime dropped by 74%, it's now around a third of the FBI National Average.

Visionary leaders in both Colorado State University and Kennesaw realized that increasing the number of responsible people who can protect their loved ones and reducing the number of violent career criminals would reduce violent crime. Can your city achieve similar success? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Either directly or indirectly discourage your criminals! Open Page in a new Tab or Window

5. FBI report confirms: Even More Guns, Even Less Crime

Writing in the Wall Street Journal (paywall protected), Jason Riley examines FBI data with crucial findings for gun policy Open Page in a new Tab or Window. And the latest FBI crime report confirms the same findings. Open Page in a new Tab or Window

"The FBI report says that violent crime continues to fall nationwide, which might annoy liberals because gun purchases continue to rise. In the first six months of 2013 "All violent crime showed decreases... compared with the first six months of 2012," according to the FBI. Overall, violent crime in the U.S. fell by 5.4 percent. The left likes to link violent crime to the proliferation of guns in the country, so it's worth noting that the crime reductions described in the FBI report correlate with a steady increase in firearm sales."

But that's not all, it shows that even more guns cause even less crime:

"Gun-ownership rates in the South (50%) far exceed gun-ownership rates in the Northeast (22%), yet violent crime is down more in the South than in the Northeast, according to the FBI statistics."

Front-line police officers know that legally armed citizens reduce crime Open Page in a new Tab or Window. Why should honest citizens suffer because naive people understand neither criminal motivation nor that even more guns in law-abiding hands cause even less crime?

All around the world, every place that has banned guns has increased its violent crime rate Open Page in a new Tab or Window, so who nurtures the illogical nonsense that encouraging more guns in law-abiding hands causes more crime? Open Page in a new Tab or Window

Kennesaw directly encourage their residents to be armed which is a very strong deterrent to criminals. According to their previous Police Chief Dwayne Wilson, all Open Page in a new Tab.

"Felons said they would avoid Kennesaw because they were afraid of armed victims who can defend themselves.''

Attorney Fred D. Bentley, Sr. concurs. As counsel for the town he's absolutely certain that guns are contributing to the peace in his now far larger city. "We have had one murder and that was with a knife," he says with a chuckle and continued "We had a warden of a penitentiary in Florida poll his prisoners after our ordinance came out, and the answer to his poll was this:

"I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to go to [gun-free] Morton Grove,
but I wouldn't step foot in [well-armed] Kennesaw."

7. Citizens value being able to defend their families

Header Underline
What's the political fuss about encouraging people's Second Amendment right to armed defense? Many Democrats oppose responsible citizens being able to protect their families from violent criminals with a gun. Yet if it were true that fewer guns in law-abiding hands lower the crime rate, then America should disarm the police - it would cause less crime!

Some Democratic politicians understand how ridiculous this would be. Do they realize an ever increasing majority know that a gun in the house makes you safer? all Open Page in a new Tab. They have guns and armed guards to defend them - which, given their incessant anti-gun rhetoric, makes many see them as hypocrites:
  • President Obama will now have armed guards for the rest of his life at your expense
  • Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein wants to completely disarm American citizens yet used to carry a concealed weapon
  • Illinois Democrat Senator Donne Trotter was arrested for having a gun at the airport

But Representative Michael DeBose is more honest. Ohio Democrat Rep. Pastor Michael DeBose had twice voted against Right to Carry laws - yet got a CHL permit as soon as he was attacked by armed thugs.

"I was wrong, I'm going to get a permit and so is my wife. I've changed my mind. You need a way to protect yourself and your family. If more people were packing guns, it might serve as a deterrent."

Devout Democrat Justin Cronin’s anti-gun beliefs were challenged when fleeing Hurricane Rita in a SUV with his wife and children. He had "not so much as a heavy book to throw" to defend his loved ones - which eliminated his lifelong aversion to guns!

There are substantial upside benefits and little downside risk to encouraging your law-abiding citizens to be able to defend their families from violent criminals, rapists, refugees, and terrorists, so who nurtures the fiction that guns in law-abiding hands increase crime?

8. Benefits to encouraging self-defense

How thoroughly have they checked it out? Do Democrats appreciate the tremendous benefits such as the immediate large drop in violent crime, the substantial economic growth Open Page in a new Tab, the reduction in racial tensions Open Page in a new Tab and the improvements in police performance Open Page in a new Tab that encouraging law-abiding citizens to defend their families brings? Police guns protect them from violent criminals and guns in responsible hands do exactly the same. So encourage gun ownership - it completely complements everything your police are currently doing to fight crime. Yet since the police are the crime-fighting experts, politicians like that they support the crime reductions that it brings as well as the increased protection for their law-abiding citizens.

9. How to reduce your violent crime substantially

Explore the facts. In Texas, most Childress citizens have guns and this small city has a violent crime rate similar to National, the guns their citizens own are already deterring many criminals. Childress is now lots smaller than Kennesaw's 30,000 while in 1991 they both had the same 5,000 population.

Look at the enormous difference Discouraging Criminals makes. Violent crime in Kennesaw, Georgia is far lower than National, their citizens are far safer today. Since most households have guns, their violent criminals - who don't know who is armed - have stopped attacking their people. Kennesaw also enjoys far less property crime - also much less than National Average.

Is your crime rate higher than the rest of America? Are the FBI numbers accurate? When cities and counties send monthly crime numbers to their State Agency, it passes them on to the FBI who verify and publish the totals in the fall. We researched this, so assuming no mistakes your city's FBI crime totals accurately reflect the crimes you reported.

Your citizens' safety depends on many factors. Because discouraging violent criminals from attack needs an ordinance - your politicians' responsibility - you can't blame the police for not having implemented it. But since the police are the local crime-reducing experts, to support its amazing benefits for your community needs them to know how and why discouraging criminals works so well.

Your community will become safer for everyone. Since violent criminals fear being shot by an armed victim, the knowledge that ALL their prey are armed is a very strong motivation not to attack anyone. The guns owned by your residents are already deterring criminals. And even more guns deter violent crime even more.

Yet encouraging gun ownership has many other benefits apart from the obvious. Since sexual predators as well as hardened criminals are deterred from violence making everyone safer, your community becomes an even more desirable place to live:

13. The media bias against armed self-defense

Americans know a gun protects them from violent criminals. The fewer defenseless citizens unable to defend their families, the less violent crime. Since 1991, the number of guns in America has doubled and violent crime has halved. Yet the study title shows the media bias: It should read "BECAUSE OF lower crime rates, support for gun rights increases" rather than "DESPITE lower crime rates..."

Why is there so much negative publicity about guns? Because the powers-that-be, those who control the economy and the media, are willing to lie to have you disarmed. They follow Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's philosophy - if you tell a big enough lie for long enough, people will believe it.

Their media campaign is both relentless and enormous but not over-whelming, many people are willing to think for themselves. The latest Pew Research poll finds an ever increasing majority of Americans know that a gun in the house makes you safer Open Page in a new Tab. Those who know guns protect you from violent criminals has dramatically increased in virtually all categories, especially Afro-Americans.

"The number of CPL [concealed pistol license] holders running around the city of Detroit act as a deterrent.

Nelson Police Chief Jim Koury, courtesy nelsongeorgia.com

"People normally don't want to get involved in suspicious activity or crimes because they're scared of becoming a victim themselves.

"But [by Discouraging Criminals], you're much more likely to be open and sincere with police officers because you have a means to defend yourself and your family if the bad guys come looking for you."

– Police Chief Jim Koury, City of Nelson, Georgia

Average deaths in a shooting rampage when stopped by police: 14.3. But average deaths when stopped by civilians: far less - just 2.3.

When women and seniors are armed, they can defend themselves from attack by often young, male and much stronger violent criminals, rapists, and terrorists.

So we encourage responsible law-abiding citizens, those who pass the background checks, to be able to protect themselves, their family and their property. Despite negativity and media misunderstanding, Discouraging Criminals is neither Mandatory Gun Ownership nor Compulsory Gun Ownership, it's simply your choice.
