“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." ~Frederic Bastiat
srs here, can you explain that for an idiot like myself? i'm not following.
I was being sarcastic. The data absolutely speaks for itself. People can spin the sociology behind the numbers all they want (and I'm sure a few will,) but the numbers absolutely tell the story. No matter how bad some want to deny it.
I saw that The Young Turks made a video criticizing the argument that gun crime is really a racial issue. I'd link the video, but I don't want to be directly responsible for those shit heads getting any more hits. It was just spin.
In every state that has a Black population over 3%, the overwhelming majority of homicides and gun related crimes are committed by Blacks. So, if you ban "assault weapons," the number of homicides and gun related deaths will not go down. But if you ban statistics and data collecting, the number of homicides and violent crimes committed by Blacks won't be an issue. See what I'm saying? These numbers are only insignificant if you elect to be ignorant to them. No matter how much one tries to spin it.
