Think about this. The United States of America has the third highest murder rate in the world. But, if you take out three cities: Chicago, IL, Detroit, MI and Washington, DC, the United States has to the fourth lowest murder rate in the world. Those three cities, by the way, have the toughest gun laws in the United States. None of them, however, are the murder capital of the nation. Detroit is number #2. The high crime rate is due to poverty and drug addiction. It's neighbor, Flint, is number #1. New Orleans, LA is number #3, St. Louis, MO is number #4 and Baltimore, MD is number #5. Sixth is Birmingham, AL. Tied for seventh place are Newark, NJ and Oakland, CA. Baton Rouge, LA is eighth. Cleveland, OH is ninth and Memphis, TN is 10th.
The top dozen murder cities (listed above) have one thing in common. And, it's not the social progressive violations of the 2nd Amendment. It's poverty. The poorest cities in the nation have the highest crimes rates. Detroit is the poorest city in the United States. Cleveland is the 4th poorest followed by St. Louis, which is 6th and Newark as the 10th poorest city. Among the ten most dangerous cities in the United are St. Louis—#1, Detroit—#2, Memphis—#3., Oakland, CA—#4, Baltimore—#8, Cleveland—#9, and Baton Rogue—#10. These cities are among the top ten where you have the best chance of being held up at gunpoint—and killed. The more convinced criminals are that their intended victims are not armed, the more likely those citizens will be attacked.
What does that tell you about gun control? Gun control, not gun ownership, is the root cause of crime. Make the strong weak by disarming them, the weak will become strong enough to prey on them. That's not a whimsical statement pulled out of thin air. That is a fact borne out by the statistics. Since that's so obviously true, then why is the federal government—and the overlords of the New World Order—so adamant in their efforts to outlaw the private ownership of guns? Believe me, it's not to protect the citizens from gun violence.

They want to outlaw the private ownership of guns not because you're afraid of armed street thugs, but because they're afraid of the honest citizens with lawful weapons who have already told the government of the United States, "that's enough!" one time too many. Today those honest citizens are strenuously reminding those they elected that it—the central government—derives 100% of its power not from the princes of industry and barons of banking who bribe them, but from the consent of the governed who, today, are ready to dissolve the political bands that bind honest men to the crooked politicians who have wasted the wealth of the greatest nation on Earth. Because if "We The People" do not deal with the most politically corrupt government on Earth—the Obama Administration—the United States of America will cease to exist before the "fiat money well" that funds our bankrupt Social Security system goes dry or before Grandma goes into an Obamacare hospital to have the festering boil on her buttock lanced and dies on the table. In other words, when gun rights die, so does the nation.
