Hundreds of thousands of students descended on Washington recently to take part in the March to Prevent the Innocent and Frail from Having the Right to Protect Themselves. Advocates of abolishing the Second Amendment to the Constitution claim there were 825,000 marchers, though a non-partisan source said the highest number reached was about 202,500, or less than 1/4th that number. Fake news is good news to the Kool-Aid drinkers.
Ironically, there was a heavy police and military presence at the March (of) Madness, with armed officers making sure no one got shot. Due to the pathological prejudices of academia and the mainstream media, most of the human lemmings were unaware of the following facts:
*According to the CDC, two-thirds of all gun deaths in 2016 were suicides
* There is a clear correlation between higher firearm ownership and reducing police killings
* The U.S. has the highest gun ownership in the world, but ranks 28th in gun murders
* Between 1993 and 2003, gun ownership increased by 56 percent, while gun violence decreased by nearly half. Can you say, “correlation?”
* Switzerland, a nation of about 8 million, is armed with an estimated 2 million guns in circulation and has very limited gun legislation. The country’s overall gun homicide rate is essentially zero. This speaks of societal homogeneity and cohesion, discipline, service, etc.
*There are over five times more murders by knives than by rifles.
*Since 1950, nearly all public mass shootings have occurred in “gun free zones.”
One of the sheeple queried on their motives for marching responded, “If I can get an AR-15, why can’t I get a nuclear weapon?” Well, that’s the real question, isn’t it, sister?! I mean, if I can get a drone, why can’t I get a 747? If I can get a spotting scope, surely I can obtain the Hubble Telescope? If I can buy a fire extinguisher, what’s to keep me from buying a Lockheed P2V-7 Air tanker?
Those participating in the March of Idiots are the real gun nuts.
