Who Inflicts the Most Gun Violence in America? The U.S. Government and Its Police Forces

“It is often the case that police shootings, incidents where law enforcement officers pull the trigger on civilians, are left out of the conversation on gun violence. But a police officer shooting a civilian counts as gun violence.

Every time an officer uses a gun against an innocent or an unarmed person contributes to the culture of gun violence in this country.”—Journalist Celisa Calacal

Yes, gun violence is a problem in America, although violent crime generally remains at an all-time low.

Yes, mass shootings are a problem in America, although while they are getting deadlier, they are not getting more frequent.

Yes, mentally ill individuals embarking on mass shooting sprees are a problem in America.

However, tighter gun control laws and so-called “intelligent” background checks fail to protect the public from the most egregious perpetrator of gun violence in America: the U.S. government.

Consider that five years after police shot and killed an unarmed 18-year-old man in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been no relief from the government’s gun violence.

Here’s what we’ve learned about the government’s gun violence since Ferguson, according to The Washington Post: If you’re a black American, you’ve got a greater chance of being shot by police. If you’re an unarmed black man, you’re four times more likely to be killed by police than an unarmed white man. Most people killed by police are young men. Since 2015, police have shot and killed an average of 3 people per day. More than 2,500 police departments have shot and killed at least one person since 2015. And while the vast majority of people shot and killed by police are armed, their weapons ranged from guns to knives to toy guns.  READ MORE HERE:

New Years Wish: No More Morally Superior Phonies

by Marilyn M. Singleton, MD, JD

Preview: 

  • My new year’s resolution is to expose the hypocrisy of the morally superior politicians whose election strategy was to pretend they cared about crafting policies in the country’s best interest.
  • Multimillionaire Nancy (“We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it” and if you disagree with me you are sexist) Pelosi is safe in her Napa Wine Country or San Francisco home, far from the drug addicts, dirty needles, feces, gang members and homeless lining the streets of San Francisco. Her voters may be too uninformed or willfully blind to see what she and her ilk have done to this formerly beautiful city. Sadly, the nation will be forced to suffer from her policies that reward scofflaws, patronize the poor, create dependency, and are designed to hustle votes.
  • Because their lives are so much more precious than ours, the power brokers have their private security and the medical care of their choice. They also have no shame.

My new year’s resolution is to expose the hypocrisy of the morally superior politicians whose election strategy was to pretend they cared about crafting policies in the country’s best interest.

Take “the wall” on our southern border. Ignoring the opinion of the border patrol agents (51 percent of whom are Hispanic) that it would “without a doubt” be a helpful tool, Nancy Pelosi and her people claimed it would be ineffective in stopping everybody. That’s like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stopping its flu vaccination campaign because the vaccine is only 40-60 percent effective.

And sanctuary state California Senator Kamala Harris was quick to the gun control microphone when some people were shot in a brawl but not a peep out of her when a community is in mourning after its brown-skinned legal immigrant policeman is gunned down at a traffic stop by a twice arrested illegal immigrant.

THE STARK REALITY OF GUN CONTROL

As many governments in the world are forcing the common people to give up more and more of their rights of privacy but also their rights to defend themselves from either home invasions, those enemies abroad or those enemies of the state that are from within, then one must ask the question, which is the lesser of two evils when it comes to allowing the citizenry to have guns or allowing only the government to have guns.

First of all, America has the second amendment to where the citizenry may be armed to the teeth to protect themselves from invaders, gun slingers or their own government.

Secondly:

  • There is the U.S. government also armed to the teeth,
  • meant to protect themselves abroad but also their country at home,
  • Unfortunately this includes an arsenal of ammunition,
  • 1.6 Billion rounds of ammo purchased during the Obama administration for Homeland Security plus,
  • rifles, tanks, machine guns, helicopters, drones, grenade launchers,
    heat guns and more,
  • for the sake of keeping the peace and upholding the the U.S. Constitution, which is by the way, barely even being followed by law enforcement and the courts.
  • Therefore, is not freedom now in the balance?

Gun control? How about some Government control?

The increase in privately owned so-called “assault weapons” is in direct response to the militarization of our local law enforcement agencies.

They have become a quasi military entity complete with military fatigues in many instances, military tanks, grenade launchers, sound weapons and an array of other military gizmos and gadgets; all gifted to them at bargain sale prices, via Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. And, aside from your local sheriff (because he/she is elected) all law enforcement is under the control of Homeland Security.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Key to our supposed freedom loving nation, is the 2nd amendment to the Constitution. It is the underpinning to our freedom not just from possible invaders, but primarily, from a tyrannical government that might rear its ugly head and turn on its own people.Maybe we ought to give some real thought to government control. While the Framer’s of the Constitution could not have imagined the coming technologies of the future, nor life as it exists today in these United States, they did recognize the tendencies of governments to expand their power, eventually turning on their own people. History is rife with examples of tyrannical governments all over the globe that have killed off many of their own populations in an effort to obtain total tyranny over them. It appears to me, that we stand on the threshold of having this happen to us; the very thing the Framer’s feared most. What made us think our own government would not eventually turn on us? And turn it has.

With the public carefully being conditioned to believe that private gun ownership is somehow a threat to all of us, that same public turns a blind eye to the threat posed by our own ever expanding police state, brought to you courtesy of your own government.
