There are 200 millions guns and over a trillion bullets nationwide. There were 6000 gun related deaths in 2015 (many of which included the same gun/person). Most of these are single killings, especially in gang warfare. 259 (2012 is the most recent) of those gun deaths result from home invasion/self defense. The individual killings could be accomplished with knives bombs, cars, rocks, bows and arrows, we can’t ban all weapons and it would be stupid to do so.
So that means, assuming each death was a different gun/person, you are punishing 99.9997% of people who own a gun for no reason. Since gun laws have loosened, violent crime has gone down 48%. We need to speak out against the “religion” of Islam (it is a POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS ideology) and not worry about inanimate objects. I suppose if we called Communism, nazi-ism, authoritarianism, and fascism a religion they would be OK to not criticize.
There were 372 mass shootings (although mass shooting is defined liberally here) in America in 2015 killing 475. So that is 372 guns out of 200 million, which could be accomplished with any means just as, if not more, effectively. You can google how to make a bomb anytime with cleaning supplies.
Radical Muslims doesn’t just mean MURDERERS. It means those who support and are complicit in these attacks, as well as those who are silent because THE QURAN TEACHES IT! They aren’t RADICAL they are LITERAL! There are 2 billion Muslims worldwide. According to Pew research, up to 40% of them believe Sharia law should be in their country, including countries in the west. Around 80% of Muslims worldwide think gay sex should is immoral, 11 Muslim countries have the death penalty for it. So this tiny Muslim minority, 1.6 billion believe you should be punished, gays (51% of British Muslims). THAT is “radical” Muslims, not just murdering terrorists.
As opposed to 62% of protestant people believe gay MARRIAGE should be LEGAL according to Pew. Christian countries also harbor the most equal laws IN THE WORLD. How the hell can you deny this and try to displace blame onto Christians?
How many people have died to Islam in history? 290 MILLION (100 million Hindus). The sources are listed in the link.
How many are murder victims of JUST ISLAM in 2015? 15,000 (Estimated, didn’t add up every number)!
This is not a very good source, but I couldn’t find any good ones. 17 MILLION people in history have been killed in the name of Christianity, from a biased source though. I did find another harsh source, but it was incredibly intellectually dishonest (Counted Nazi-ism and Stalin as Christian wars when they had no Christian motives (both were run by ATHEISTS), Stalin actually nearly wiped out the Christian church in Russia).
I’m not a Christian but the comparison is ridiculous. The bible has one bad verse to my knowledge which no one follows “Stone the gays!” The Quran has “Kill the polytheists,” “Jews and Christians are not your friends,” “Smite the unbelievers above the neck.”, “Kill the one who does (gay sex) and the one to whom it is done,” “kill the apostates,” and the whole repressing of women thing. #religionofpeace #nothingtodowithislam.
Since 1977, there have been the following Christian motivated crimes: “eight murders, 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings, and 181 arsons.” The bombings and arsons are largely attributed to abortion clinics. That is 38 years folks. This is why the “Christian extremists” are considered “mentally ill” because it NEVER HAPPENS. Some people try to apply Christian motives to crimes committed by people who happen to be Christian, such as the OKC bombing by McVeigh. Here is a link to a site that tries to do that. Even when you take this liberal definition, Christianity’s death toll pales in comparison. If we do the same to Islam, the amount of violent crime would increase several times.
Why do you blame guns for killing people instead of the people (Should we call gun owners gun worshipers and call you Gunophobes?).
Because the Boston Marathon was sooooo because of guns.
So let us ban pressure cookers, ball bearings, and nails.
Lets do background checks! Well I guess someone willing to murder a hundred people is going to take theft laws seriously, I mean how could they steal a gun!?
Lets make gun free zones! Well I guess the criminals will totally stop the attack when they see this, I mean who wouldn’t want a challenge of getting shot back at.
Lets ban automatic weapons! Let us ignore that this prevents future domestic tyranny and/or invasion to our country, which was the main reason for its inclusion in our constitution (Yes, it still does and can happen, I mean learn from history please). I mean the Orlando shooting was totally an automat-…. Oh wait, no it wasn’t!
Pipe bombs and other bombs can be made with household cleaning supplies available at every hardware store. These are arguably more effective than guns but take slightly more effort to make than pulling a trigger. So your gun ban may have the OPPOSITE effect, making more efficient killing weapons by motivating them to take the extra effort.
Mass killings have occurred without guns, see Oklahoma City bombings, Boston Marathon, Akihabara massacre, 9/11, and all of the car bombings in the middle east. People could just steal a semi and run over a parade (Like that lady in Oklahoma State… By accident…).
Now look at the University of Texas belltower shooting! Where the people were armed! The death toll was limited because people pinned a SNIPER down while police found their way up the tower.
It is right to be “Islamophobic” when most of them don’t want to assimilate and want to conquer/destroy the values of this country. America is called the Melting pot for a reason, melt and become part of the country or get removed from the pot. On a lighter note, most Muslims in the US currently are upper middle class and non-praciticing Muslims. Obviously, not all of one group is “bad” but all I have to say is look at the numbers.
PS- Full verses.
Leviticus (20:13) “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” It is implied that the method of death should be stoning to death, as in the rest of Leviticus.
(8:12) “Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.””
[5:52] “O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. And whoso among you takes them for friends is indeed one of them. Verily, Allah guides not the unjust people.”
(9:5) “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah (tax), let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
(4:89) – “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of God; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”
Hadith and Sira, Abu Dawud, (4462) – “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Lot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.”” (The Quran itself lists it as punishable in multiple verses, but this lists the specific punishment)
