Thinking and Linking by Joanne Jacobs
– Signe Wilkinson
Because of course if we only pass more gun control laws, the criminals will see the error of their ways and turn in their weapons and never use them again.
Check the violent crime numbers in the U.K. and Australia after they passed draconian gun control laws.
You needn’t look any farther than Chicago.
That is not the NRA argument, but I’ll roll with it. Shall we then eliminate the Presidential Guard because Reagan and Kennedy were shot?
What evidence do you have that people who are armed are shot more often than unarmed people?
Switzerland is one of the most heavily armed countries in the world which is one reason why the Germans left it alone in WWII. Homicide rates in Switzerland are low. South Africa has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world and is one of the most violent countries in the world.
An examination of crime statistics in the US shows that the percentage of the population which is black is far more imortant than any other factor in explaining crime levels. Variables other than black percentage of population are of minor significance in comparison.
Hmmm… Four dead people in the cemetery that were carrying guns. And how many graves for victims of violence that had no means to defend themselves?
Yesterday’s Huck Finn cartoon somehow became a gun control cartoon. I’ve put back the original. I’m afraid it may change tomorrow when Signe posts a new cartoon.
I actually like this cartoon….
