Poe on Guns and Children Myth Number 3

Rossie O'Dumbell er O'Donnel hyperventilates about an alleged 4,000 children who die each year from gunfire. The statistic is genuine as a child is defined as any unmarried person under the age of twenty one. Thus is two twenty year old drug dealers assume room temperature and one is married and the other is not the unmarried one gets counted as a child.

The number of children 14 and under who die each year from gunfire is around 200. Even this number may not tell the entire story as the number of deaths attributable to drug dealing violence is not tabulated. Thus if little Herbie dies in a cross fire between two drug dealers the cause of death is more related to drugs. Children
are more likely to die from burns 1,000, car crashes 2,900 and drowning 950. Children are also more likely to die in accidents involving bicycles.

Thus Rosie O'Dumbell and company have another agenda. The NYC variant of gun control is a form of elitism . In NYC Joan Rivers and Donald Trump can and have been issues pistol permits. However Martha Jones who lives in a crime infested area can not afford the fees and the legal help to defend her home. The obvious overtones are not racial but financial.

The left hyperventilates about the NRA Eddie the Eagle classes. Young children are instructed to leave the area if a gun is found and tell an adult. A study was shown that young children who had taken the cass avoided the gun while those who did not aimed and pointed an unloaded gun. Now if we had proper education gun safety would be part of the school ciriculum and handled in the same manner as sex ed and drivers ed. Let parents write the school if they want their children not to participate.

The hysteria about children and guns is unwarranted . Children are far more likely to suffer from abusive parents like Nixmary Brown then to be cut down by a gun. The roles of drug, alcohol abuse and fathers who are MIA are swept under the rug. Children would be far better served by prosecuting drug users and proting in tact families then by the anti gun mania .

Comming up Next Myth Number 4
Does the second amendment only grant rights to militia.
Is Mr Beamish correct that all of us are part of the militia ?
Why don't the rest of us know this ?
Hold onto your seat as the the series continues.

Beamish in 08, Ducky to Gitmo and RIP 167 don't call or write

Welcome to the militia, Beak!

beakerkin said...

Apparently it is true but that is the next post . I think Ducky should be exempted as a section eight case.

Lost my main hard drive today. Spent most of day trying to figure out what happened. I reconfigued another hard drive with the operating system I like but that pretty much ate up what little of the day was left.

Hopefully, I'll have time to post tomorrow.

beakerkin said...

Tommorow evening promises to be more fun as Mr Beamish is apparently correct that I am part of the militia. However so is "gasp" Ducky.

Esther said...

Very interesting post, Beak. There ya go, makin' me think again. :)

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Ducky is an able-bodied citizen?

Since when?

beakerkin said...

That would give the Duck an exemption. However Marxists should be prohibited from owning firearms.
Poe traces this concept as the origin of the original UK gun laws. However it is ironic that in the USA Commies seek to restrict gun ownership.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Marxists should be prohibited from owning anything, if only to guard them against hypocrisy.

Mr. Ducky said...

Such vitriol, Beamish. I'm glad the nasty ragheads have you second amendment pussy boys to get through before they can destroy America.

beakerkin said...

Hmmm

Do notice the fowl Duck uses an epithet that if the Beak used he would be quacking. Let me put it bluntly if the day ever came where I had to bear arms Marxists would top the list. One can find a decent Muslim and there are plenty but Commies belong on histories dung pile. I may even join the NRA
as Poe has moved me to the right.

Mr. Ducky said...

Beak, irony challenged as usual.

Do what you like. You can't think clearly enough to be relevent.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Please, Ducky. My shoe on a bad day is smarter than you'd ever hope to be.

My proof? My shoe has never said anything like the things you have.

beakerkin said...

Hmm

Lets see an apologist for a totalitarian creed should be the first one rounded up. We will call it the Urban Marxist Rodeo. Patriots will lure all you lazy Marxist out with free government cheese or stage a faux peace protest then off all of you go to Gitmo. In your case an escape will be permitted so you can live under inFidel Castro.

Have no fear Duck it will never happen but getting all of you commies out of the USA would be a pleasure.

Spewing vitriol? i know the history of all the commie regimes, sickening to say the least...the jewish took a large chunk of the hatred,pogroms, etc and then the rest of the millions shipped off to to the north of russia.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

As longtime readers of my blog know, leftists are either physically incapable of rational thought, or damned meticulous in hiding the ability to think rationally in public. Ducky serves as my prime example, until I replace him, if possible, with an even duller tool.

Warren said...

With the Duck, Jews don't count. But then again, to him, none of the Hundred million deaths attributed to communism, count.

Did I mention the Duck has a gun? He might even have a bullet! He's also a common thief, but show me a commie that isn't.

elijah said...

Hey warren, lets not forget the anihilation of the the indians, for what...money and land. Glory and wealth for the those in the rear,kill em all, to hell with the soldiers in the front,so easy for those in the back...reminds me of trotskty's decree during the civil war between the reds and the whites, telling his soldiers possible death in the front certain death in the rear if they dare retreat...good old communism
