Do Democrats care about dead black men?


"In politics, unintended consequences are rare. By going after the weapons white suburbanites and rural people enjoy, Democrats obfuscate the real issue: Black young men killing black young men for profit in cities controlled by Democrats." -- Don Surber:

After 30 Years Of Lies, NY Times Admits "Assault Weapons Are A Myth" | Bearing Arms: The NY Times finally admitted that "assault weapons" are a made-up political term fabricated by anti-gun Democrats. Op-ed writer Lois Beckett also admitted that once the term was manufactured and used to outlaw a class of weapons that dishonest anti-gun Democrats had used to con an entire nation, nothing happened.

Regardless if it's a gun or a marshmallow if someone tries to prevent your ownership of anything at all they are trying to control you.

That person is genetically flawed and cannot be fixed and it will continually try to own you.

There is only one remedy for this.

Total and instant destruction at the source.

Anything less is coddling and encouraging.

There might be a difference between the number of reported "homicides" and the number of "all firearm deaths". Just saying.

Just saying what, that more people were murdered in total than were murdered by guns?
Well, yeah, what's your point?

@Larry — here's the numbers, easily accessed at this link. If you need help interpreting the data we are here for you.
A quick look has the number of firearms homicides at a little less than half the total homicides.
People will use knives, furniture, baseball bats, tire irons, their bare hands.

Taking a life rarely has any style. This from one who knows.

Those firms that go through this assessment exercise sooner rather than later will find that they are well positioned to plan for the necessary changes to their business model and their operations, minimising business disruption and compliance costs.
