Data shows guns aren’t the problem

If you are contributing to the anti-gun hysteria, then you need to watch this video, please. It will show you that not only are guns not the problem, but rifles are most assuredly not the problem by looking at actual data. Facts. Not emotion.

  1. Justin i feel you should know that, like everyone this guy talks about, he is also misinformed and using data that he has not thoroughly researched within his arguments.

    When saying that the England and Wales have 3.5x the violent crime than the U.S. one should always check the definition of violent crime used in the statistics. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports defines a violent crime as one of four specific offenses: murder and non negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Whereas In the U.K. the Home Office has a different definition of violent crime. This includes all “crimes against the person,” including simple assaults, all robberies, and all “sexual offenses,” as opposed to the FBI, which only counts aggravated assaults and “forcible rapes.” He is comparing two completely different subsets of data. He has indeed “Chosen his own crime stats”

    I feel i should include i am from the U.K. I couldn’t give a shit about the gun laws in the U.S. they don’t affect me and i don’t wish to try to challenge the personal views of anybody on either side. I do however, believe a person who makes an argument on a video, in the typical douche bag fashion of their face in front of a camera should at least have some accuracy in what they report.

    • Fair point.

      That still doesn’t effect that violent crime in the states has decreased and that assault weapons comprise a very small percent of gun related crimes.
