They continued by stating that In Nevada, a person is killed with a gun every 20 hours and that Nevada is among the deadliest states for gun violence. From 2005 to 2014, Nevada had the 10th-highest rate of gun deaths of any state, with a rate of 14.7 gun deaths for every 100,000 people. This rate was 44 percent higher than the national average was the claim.
And of course the reason for this, they say, is because Nevada has some of the nation’s weakest gun laws. There source for this is The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence which gave Nevada an “F” for the strength of its gun laws in 2015.
In the heart of the nation we find Chicago where inside its city limits, not a single gun shop can be found — they’ve been outlawed. With its nearly 3 million residents, Chicago has the most stringent gun laws in the nation. In the State of Illinois to legally possess or purchase firearms or ammunition, its residents must have a Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card, which is issued by the Illinois State Police. The police must issue FOID cards to eligible applicants.
Never the less, the nation's third largest city recorded 51 homicides in January, the highest toll for the month since at least 2000. In 2015, within the city that has arguably the toughest gun laws, 443 people were shot and killed and an additional 2552 people were shot and wounded. There is no correlation between gun laws and gun violence.
Yet, the Marxist/Progressives continue the fight to invoke more gun laws and ultimately to eliminate guns and ammunition for citizens. Obama uses every possible incident to make his point that American citizens should not have guns or ammunition.
Federal data shows that government agencies charged with largely administrative roles are spending tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to purchase SWAT and military-style equipment. Since FY 2006, 44 traditionally administrative agencies have spent over $71 million on items like body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition, according to federal spending data from watchdog group. These are agencies like the FDA, EPA, BLM, and DHS. The DHS has purchased over 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition. These purchases are being denied, and then inanely justified.
Many of you will remember a story that broke a long time ago – about presidential candidate Barack Obama’s little-noticed announcement that, if elected in 2008, he wanted to create a “civilian national security force” as big, as strong and as well-funded as the Defense Department.
It would appear that Obama is also keeping this promise and not just the promise to fundamentally transform the United States. Armed American Citizens would be a definite threat to any “civilian national security force” whose purpose was to enforce unconstitutional Executive Orders to postpone a national election and violate the 22nd amendment.
