Piers Morgan Is Lying About Gun Control

 Piers Morgan a Marxist, like those Marxists in the democrat party, including their confederates in the republican party--is promoting an international Marxist agenda of civilian disarmament; he is lying to the American people about gun control--nearly every statistic he quotes is inaccurate and he fails to acknowledge the many statistics which invalidate his arguments. Piers Morgan, as Marxists are wont to be--is arrogant and condescending in his lies. 

Fortunately, Piers Morgan's CNN audience is very small--and consists mostly of ineffectual useful idiots.

Yes the UK has a lower murder rate with firearms than the United States does, but what Piers Morgan fails to admit is--the overall rate of violent crime in the UK is about 4 times higher than it is in the United States of America. A woman in the UK is not allowed to use a firearm to protect herself against potential and actual rapists who are often armed; this partially explains why the UK has about 125 percent more rape victims per 100,000 people than the United States does.

At the same time UK newspapers are declaring the UK has become the "violent crime capital of Europe", crime rates in the United States have actually fallen dramatically over the past 20 years; and this has happened during a time in which gun laws became much less restrictive in the United States. 

At present murder rates in the United States are generally far higher in cities and other locations which have very strict gun control laws, e.g., Chicago and NYC--than they are for much of the the rest of the nation; the statistics--even those of the federal government, make it clear--that when there are more guns there is usually less crime.

Here are 18 facts--plus some relevant extras which prove Piers Morgan and the Marxist democrat party are lying about gun control...

#1 The UK has approximately 125 percent more rape victims per 100,000 people each year than the United States does.
#2 The UK has approximately 133 percent more assault victims per 100,000 people each year than the United States does.
#3 Piers Morgan continues lying and insisting there are more than 11,000 gun murders in the United States every year; the truth according to the FBI is, there were 8,583 gun murders in the United States during 2011; and as Ben Swann recently pointed out, 400 of those were justifiable homicides by law enforcement and 260 of those were justifiable homicides by private citizens.
#4 The United States is number one in the world in gun ownership, and yet it is only 28th in the world in gun murders per 100,000 people.
#5 The violent crime rate in the United States actually fell from 757.7 per 100,000 in 1992 to 386.3 per 100,000 in 2011. During that same time period, the murder rate fell from 9.3 per 100,000 to 4.7 per 100,000. And this was during a time period when gun laws in the United States generally became much less restrictive.
#6 The city of Chicago has some of the strictest anti gun laws in the United States--but this has not reduced crime; The murder rate, in Chicago was approximately 17 percent higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, and Chicago is now considered to be "the deadliest global city". There were about as many murders in Chicago during 2012 as there were in the entire nation of Japan--a nation with very strict gun control laws. Japan has a population of approximately 127,960,000; whereas Chicago, IL has a population of approximately 2,707,120. Japan also has a very high suicide rate of approximately 24 per 100,000 people. Whereas the United States has a suicide rate of approximately 12 per 100,000 people.  
#7 After the city of Kennesaw, Georgia passed a law requiring every home to have a gun, the crime rate dropped by more than 50 percent over the course of the next 23 years.
#8 Approximately 200,000 women in the United States use guns to protect themselves against sexual crimes every single year.
#9 Good people using guns in the United States are used 80 times more often to prevent crime than they are to take lives--often times the mere presence of a gun will prevent the crime from going any further, without any shots being fired.
#10 Approximately 3.5 percent of the gun murders in the United States are caused by rifles.
#11 According to Gallup, an all-time record 74 percent of all Americans are against a total handgun ban in the United States.
#12 In Australia, murders with guns increased by approximately 19 percent and armed robberies increased by approximately 69 percent after a gun ban was instituted.
#13 When Piers Morgan claims there are only 35 gun murders in the UK per year, he isn't being truthful.  According to official statistics, there were 59 murders with guns in the UK in 2011.  It is also important to keep in mind that gun crime was already very low even before the gun ban in the UK was instituted; and that a 2009 article in The Telegraph declared that gun crime had doubled over the past decade even though it is widely acknowledged that crime statistics in the UK are massively underreported.
#14 The UK has the fourth highest burglary rate in the EU.
#15 The UK has the second highest overall criime rate in the EU.
#16 A 2009 article in The Telegraph had this stunning headline: "UK is violent crime capital of Europe".
#17 Despite the very strict ban on guns in the UK, the facts show that the UK is a far more violent society than the United States is. In one recent year, there were 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people in the UK. In the United States, there were 466 violent crimes per 100,000 people during that same year.
#18 According to Gun Owners of America, the governments of the world slaughtered more than 170 million of their own people during the 20th century.  The majority of those people had been disarmed by their own governments prior to being slaughtered.
