430 died in a mostly peaceful week

In the media's efforts to end private gun ownership, reporters glommed on to Gun Violence Archive, a source that claims to have statistics on shootings and killings.

The Hill reported, "At least 915 shootings took place across the country last week, leaving at least 430 people dead, according to ABC News and the Gun Violence Archive.

"The shootings, which occurred between Saturday, July 17, and Friday, July 23, wounded 1,007 people, according to ABC.

"The stunning numbers illustrate the spike in gun violence across the U.S."

Stunning, but not surprising.

If you stick a knife in a socket, expect to be shocked.

Last summer, the media stuck a big knife in inner city violence by pretending nightly riots were mostly peaceful protests.

Now ABC and the Hill feign surprise at the rise in crime.

Not content with the yellow-journalistic spread of the numbers, the Hill ginned up the numbers by including suicides, as the Hill reported, "There were more than 43,000 gun deaths in 2020, which was the largest number in at least two decades, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit group that tracks gun violence data. The number of gun-related deaths, however, is expected to eclipse that record this year, with more than 24,000 gun fatalities already recorded in 2021."

24,000 of the gun deaths in 2020 were suicides.

13,000 of the gun deaths this year were suicides.

Honest reporting requires this to be mentioned because that is how the source put it. 

The archive said there were 19,379 gun violence deaths and 24,090 gun suicides in 2020.

The stoking of ghetto violence is part of the plan to end the Second Amendment. And yes, this is ghetto violence because a disproportionate number of these killings and mass shootings (as the media calls them) are young black men killing other young black men.

The Hill said, "July 18 was the worst day for gun violence in the U.S. last week, according to ABC News. Roughly 22% of all gun-related incidents occurred between midnight and 3 a.m."

Well, there you go. Slap a midnight curfew in Chicago and other Democrat-run hellholes, and gun violence will drop 22%. 

A curfew could have saved 4,188 lives last year.

After 67 years of study, I have come to the conclusion that nothing good happens outside between midnight and dawn.

Of course, invoking a curfew would require Mayor Lightfoot and the other Democrat mayors to care about what happens to young black males.

They don't.

Democrats want the body count to rise because they believe this will lead to the repeal of the Second Amendment.

A reader wrote me, "The leftists may destroy football. The leftists may destroy baseball. The leftists may destroy hockey and basketball, but one thing the leftists will never destroy is the shooting sports scene in Chicago."

It serves them well.

  1. If upper-class (and upper-middle-class) leftists would give up their recreational drug use, the "business" behind most of this violence would disappear and thus nearly all of the violence would disappear as well.

    1. And the cartels in the northern part of Mexico would shrink in numbers and then drug deaths would drop too.

    2. Snowgander, if by “upper-class (and upper-middle-class) leftists you include Ron and Rand Paul supporters and other Libertarians, I would begin to take your comment seriously.

      Otherwise, I think your deluding yourself into thinking the problem is only on one-side of the political spectrum when that is NOT the case.

  2. I can't really imagine a curfew doing much good. I mean, if these creatures don't mind breaking laws against killing people why would they worry about breaking curfew?

    1. The point is that the curfew would have to be backed up by enforcement - you’re out on the streets at X o’clock without a good reason, you’ll cool your heels in jail overnight.

    2. Nope. There are plenty of rumors that in Chiraq, there's a tacit agreement between the police and the gangs; the cops stay out of gang territory and the gangs (largely) stay out of the rest of the town.

      Mobs and yout's--which DO hit the Loop and the Miracle Mile--are not affiliated with the gangs.

  3. Beginning in 2006, the Phoenix Office of the ATF not only allowed, but also facilitated and encouraged, straw purchases of firearms to known weapons traffickers. They then allowed the weapons to “walk” to Mexico. Gun Owners of America has stated that they believe this was an attempt to boost statistics for the ATF, thus securing more funding – most of the funding for this came from $40 million in competitive grants from the 2009 “stimulus package,” which was largely a giant giveaway to large banks.

    1. There were 10 such operation across the US, but they really were not investigated. Why was that?

  5. “a disproportionate number of these killings and mass shootings are young black men killing other young black men.” And it’s a major factor in holding the black population down to 12% of the total U.S. population. While Asian and Hispanic populations are rising, blacks killing each other off keeps their population in check. Of course, you’d never know that blacks are only 1/8 of the population by watching TV shows and commercials, where they are wildly over-represented.

  8. We shouldn't classify many of those deaths as murder. We called it a war on drugs, but the cartels and street gangs are at war with each other. I'd almost be willing to bet that fully 1/3 of those killed in Chiraq between the ages of 14 and 30 were involved in a murder within six weeks of their date of departure.
    I quit feeling sorry for them, it's an all volunteer army. As for the bystanders, most of them are close relations to the foot soldiers of the gangs. To the best of my knowledge the blood's and crips have not signed the Geneva Conventions for modern warfare.

    Duck hunters? Skeet shooters?? It's a mystery!

  10. "nothing good happens outside between midnight and dawn", said no country boy ever. You can eat breakfast, slop the hogs, set the decoys, and take your 1st shot 30 minutes before the first glimmer of dawn. Works for offshore fishing too.

  11. Not just suicides - that source counts all DEFENSIVE uses of guns as “gun violence”, again without breaking down the stats or even noting that they are including every lawful, defensive, incident as “gun violence”.

    Total fraud.
