Do the same at the Statue of Liberty, and sandblast that crappy old poem you use for an immigration policy while you”re at it. (Killing two birds on one stone, as it were.)
Print it on your (strange-smelling) money.
Brag about it, McDonald’s-style: ONLY 10,000 KILLED!
Because I am, well, deadly serious: That figure is”I can”t quite find the word I”m looking for”supernaturally(?) low.
And it gets lower.
Because as this must-read fellow explains (and Taki’s readers already know), a big chunk of those 10,000 are (“were”?) criminals, savages, and other assorted lowlifes anyway, who lived in one of a handful of localities:
Let’s narrow the focus. Most gun deaths are urban homicides”maybe four a week in Chicago. In fact, eleven American cities”Chicago, New Orleans, Detroit, Los Angeles, Jacksonville (Fla.), Miami, Orlando, Omaha, Atlanta, Aurora, IL, and Dallas, account for over 70% of all American gun homicides”with a weekly rate of nearly 30 shootings.
Narrowing further, according to the 2013 DOJ crime statistics, 53% of all US homicides are committed by black young men (15 to 30) in urban violence with handguns. Blacks are about 14% of US population; but young black men are about 13% of the total black population. So, 13 X 14 = 1.82, less than 2% of our population commits more than half of all American gun murders. Thus, a very small percent of the US population commits most gun homicides.
Which is why, as much as I still admire (bits of) America, and despair for the future of my own country, I can still draw a sliver of comfort when I contemplate our past. Thus I thank God every day for making Canada too cold for cotton.
