Lowering Gun Violence

This via Jon McNaughton.  I have no idea the validity of the numbers, but the sentiment is thought provoking.
This morning I was reading a blog entry on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze when I ran across this blogger’s words.  I thought it was rather interesting.  Here is the post:

Want to see a liberals go speechless on gun control? Ask these questions.
Do you know that blacks make up 12.5% of the population, but do ½ of the nation’s murders?
Do you know that by lowering black murder rates to the same as whites, we would lower the national murder per capita rate by 40%, we would also have a murder rate as low as the lowest nations in Europe, and we would save thousands of black lives?
Would you like to save black lives? What do you suggest we do to lower black murder rates?
Do you know that 70% of our murders in the US are gang related? Other than having his DOJ give “assault weapons” to Mexican drug gangs, what is Obama doing to combat gang violence?
Do you know that that our violent crimes are intrinsically tied to liberal welfare programs? Do you suggest we start phasing out these programs, being they have not succeeded in lowing poverty rates, but have instead raised it.
Do you realize that for three decades, MTV has continuously portrayed the black man as a thuggish brute that has bitches and hoes, walks around adorned in gaudy gold jewelry, wearing clownish clothes three times too big, is a gangster, and has contributed to blacks glorifying a criminal lifestyle?
libs will not be able to answer my questions above, nor will they even want to admit to the truth of those statistics
Criminality is not genetic, nor has it ever been.
Skin color is benign and non-behavioral. People do not commit crimes because of the color of their skin.
What we do know, is that democrat programs, welfare, multicultural education, MTV, violent rap… have all contributed to a serious problem of violence and murder within the black communities in the US.
Because of the liberal mandated laws of political correctness, no one is supposed to speak of these facts, nor do liberals want anyone to try to solve these problems. It detracts from their agenda
Notice that over 500 people (mostly black) were murdered in Chicago, this year alone. The mass majority were killed via cheap or stolen hand guns. Less that 3% were killed with a rifle of any type, but Obama and the libs are clamoring for banning rifles. What does that tell us? It would seem to me that libs believe that rich white kids from Connecticut matter, but blacks from the South Side of Chicago do not, otherwise, Obama and crowd would be talking lowering murder rates, and not outlawing the least used weapon in crimes.
Contrary to popular belief, most AR owners, use them for sport. we shoot national match at Camp Perry, do 3-gun, Varmint shoots, and NRA high-power matches. They are too expensive for criminals.
(Note: I used my editorial judgement to correct a few minor typos)
This is definitely NOT something you’ll hear discussed on the evening news.  Where are the President’s priorities again?
