With another recent mass shooting having taken place last week in Charleston, South Carolina – such a crisis is the perfect opportunity for the President to yet again stop just short of using the “C-word” – confiscation. Or “C” for the gun Control he promoted.
Before any victims were even in the ground, he exploited the tragedy for politicized gun control agendas.
Obama is tired of making speeches about mass killings. He’s tired of them. He doesn’t want killings to be the “new normal.” I agree with the President. Random, mass murder whether by guns, caused by mental illness, or by hatred needs to stop.
Therefore, I took the liberty of finding its biggest source…
If it’s really true that you’re 9 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist – then we need to have a talk. But where is our speech to address the thousands of Americans executed by police in the last 15 years? Is it not as speech worthy when the number of dead Americans is only 3 per day and is spattered across the country? Victims one by one?
Although we aren’t allowed to know the actual number of American citizens killed by police each year, a database has been tracking news stories since 2013.
In 2014, at least 1,104 Americans were executed on site by law enforcement. No trial – just violent death. A quick scan of the headlines shows an inordinate amount of shooting deaths. So, the media reports on them, but without the outrage reserved for lone shooters who walk into public places spraying bullets at random people.
Not only do some sources average the deaths out to 3 per day, but also one American every 7.6 hours. That means if you saw this headline before work, and then read the story after you got home from work – two Americans have likely died at the hands of law enforcement in the meantime.
The media supports the agenda to remove gun ownership from law abiding citizens because of conveniently timed and fishy looking mass shootings by deranged males – but not from deranged, gun-wielding males with badges. The ones who may gravitate to such positions, who don’t get screened. Who can simply move to another state or nearby department and restart their law enforcement career after they have killed.
Back to the numbers comparison – how does the amount of Americans murdered by police in 2014 (and on average every day) compare to the amount of Americans killed in all U.S. mass shootings? (A mass shooting is typically one person, who has randomly killed at least 4 people in a public place within 24 hours. Not to be confused with sprees, serial murders or mass genocide)
In 2014 police killed about twice the amount of Americans as those killed in all U.S. mass shootings combined, starting in 1982.
The amount of people killed in all U.S. mass shootings – 567.
That’s 567 people in 157 shootings starting in the 1980s. In 2014 alone – in one year flat – police nearly killed double that amount.
Again, where are the speeches? Where are the calls for mental health screenings and strict regulations for the authorities? Officers who kill don’t have their three-part name plastered on front pages – no calls for their guns removed. And when they happen to use one of their “less-than-lethal” weapons – they kill. When they have only their fists, boots or their arms – they kill.
This is precisely why you never, ever give up your Second Amendment – or your guns. The tragedy argument must always be flipped back to the authorities who want you to be without any defense, against deranged authorities with all the force. Turn. The. Tables.
The trouble with malleable media statistics and their tunnel vision is – it’s all pretty, framed lies. Recall when school shootings first took place – it was reported on daily for what seemed like years until the word “school” was now associated with “shooting” or gun violence. Of course it has has taken place and is horribly tragic. Nothing discounts that. But it’s a focus redirect for a reaction and controlled outcome. Just think about what now continues to mow down Americans in violence at a most startling rate. Think about how different it would be if the media framed police involved shootings in the same light…they should! It should always be a national tragedy.
Not – the “new normal.”
An inordinate amount of shootings took place between 2010-2013. Obama doesn’t even wait for burials anymore before he calls for the removal of guns before hitting the greens again. And if people don’t pay attention and sift through the truth they will find themselves stuttering and speechless when authoritarians – law enforcement perhaps – yank guns from their warm, living hands.
Take for instance, the new federal crime unit Chicago called for in the “wake of the 2014 Chicago Easter weekend shootings.” Guns were the boogeymen man in Obama’s old stomping grounds despite the fact that Chicago boasted the strictest gun control laws in the country – and also surpassed New York City in murder crimes in 2011.
The media rode the choppy waves of pointing to crime in Chicago as a reason to rid its citizens of guns, but also wanting to showcase a drop in crime to show that strict gun control works. The problem is – there was no drop in murder. Just a drastic change in how homicides were reported. It’s amazing how much a homicide looks like “death from natural causes” when law enforcement deliberately record it that way. Additionally, operations for this federal unit began April 1 – before Easter. How then could the unit be formed in “the wake of a shooting” when it happened before the shooting took place? I think you know the answer to that…
Additionally, the mainstream media is still purse-lipped on the “mass shooting that never was.” The one that was prevented by one responsible person with a gun. In fact, the “non-event” was lumped in with other shooting stories to showcase “more gun violence.” (That’s also known as deception.) An off-duty female officer saves the world from another Aurora-type shooting? Normally, that holds all the media-trappings of a heroic cause for celebration. Except when that last slot on the machine doesn’t match the greater agenda of gun control – then it doesn’t make it past the cutting room floor.
Again, I’m going to have to side with Obama on this one. Too many killings are taking place – it cannot be the “new normal” – but where, O where, shall we look?

As for [Obama’s] claims that mass shootings do not happen in other countries, of course, he can easily be proven wrong. They do. And when they do, they are generally much more dramatic due to the disarmed nature of the public.
The Second Amendment is non-negotiable. It has to be, unless the world wants to witness an En Masse shooting here in America like never before. Which is why it was written of course – the only reason why it was written.
Recently from Amanda Warren:
Makes you think about how many enemies the police are creating….
it’s no difference to the police, their training explicitly cites the public as the enemy.
The only thing this makes me think about is., Why are we making the Police a target ? Do you all want to be like Mexico and have our Country controlled by the Military ? Please stop and think when you attack our Civilian Police ! Obama is never tired of making speeches, but will not answer any questions and that is cause we may question him on his lies. We live in a country that is becoming more and more violent. Baltimore is a good example of what happens when the Police stand down. These animals Looted and burned the town down, thanks to a Mayor who stated, ” Let them have room to destroy”. The Media has framed the Police and tried to convict them of a crime they did not commit, but speeches like this that are not supported by any facts has made this Author just another radical wanting to make a change for the worse.
There are a lot of Rambo cops. No, far from a majority, but far to many. Maybe if they had to live in the area they police, things may be different.
I have the right, and the desire, to return home alive after my shift – just like they do.
Oddly though… In total violation of the Lugar-Obama Bill (2008) Obama is fine with Arming Drug Cartels that have killed thousands. He is OK with arming “Moderate Rebel’s” (sic) who in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Yemen that have slaughtered over 250,000. But hey! Them are those “Evil Muslim’s” and not the US Military who are predominately “Christian’s” who since Korea have killed 20,000,000 people (mostly Civilian’s) right?
Go back to your video games where you can adjust the Blood Splatter and gay issues of breeding and marriage and pills/abortions to get rid of unwanted babies for your sexual appetites.
The only TRUTH my cousin Obama has spoken is that of… “America is not a Christian country anymore.” Rev. Wright was RIGHT! Americas “Chicken’s” have come home to roost.”
Move along, keep moving… Nothing to see here.
I hope this does not come as a surprise to anyone?
fbi/cia/nsa/tsa/dea/atf/dhs/fema/cop – it’s a wonder anyone can even go outside.
Course w/ aca (Barry death panels) and agenda 21- it may not be much longer…get on the train – get off the train – take yer vaxes – don’t need to go outside.
Disarm the Gestapo…. Return to a Constitutional law, due process, government…
ILLEGALS also killed more AMERICANS than all mass shootings in the U.S. combined!
Al Sharpton’s calling for federalization of state and local police. Exactly what the elite want. Create the problem (militarization of police) then offer the solution (federalization).
Right o Ed….The 5% Ruling Elite are telling they’re Lap Dogs in DC what they want.
Question;….Is the US Society getting more uncivilized & violent ?..Or are the police becoming more Militarized & out of control?..Who is creating the majority of the problems? Ask yourself, what has changed since 1960? Research before you answer. Also check our Nations GDP.
I don’t see where this takes into account the number of obvious “criminals” killed trying to kill
someone else. In other words, police defending themselves and those around them, such as the two shot by police in Texas before they could have committed mass murder. Does it say how many lives were saved by those police doing their duty?
I think you make a very good point. If the police have a right to defend themselves then why not the average citizen? The Bill of Rights was written for the people and not government enforcement agencies.
To all the bleating heart sheeple…. your gestapo, surveils, confrontations, they create, so their snipers can execute; so, where’s the con, when, , these scofflaw cops are risking their lives, only, protecting, the outlaw, at law, government, at our expense… policing for profit…and, seeing to it, that, crime does pay, all the aiders and abetters, of, organized crime at law…. Edgrrr…
The writer of this article should get the fact straight. Although some police shootings are unnecessary and murder the largest majority of the people killed are criminals or forcing police to use deadly force like the punk in Ferguson. Freedom of speech does not mean you can write or say things that slander or are BS.
If they are picking the right ones, so be it. We have a lot of useless sob’s causing all kinds of trouble.
Stop letting ho’s support themselves having babies just to make more demo voters.
Critics of US gun laws tend to cite data comparing nation to nation, Defenders of US gun laws tend to rely on imagined consequences for the US that are different from the experiences of other nations with gun control. That makes no sense to me.
I’m sure as hell on the policemen’s side in your argument! If the average doped or crazy jerk-off confronted by police, would just listen to the cop & follow orders, he will NEVER get hurt!!! This is what we get when we raise kids that has NEVER had to follow rules & restrictions!! Are you stupid enough to believe these cops hurt & shoot people JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT??!!? Get real, FOOL!!!!
Yes they do! Just look at the video evidence from all over the country. The police are being militarized and the enemy is you!
America is a police state. With every shooting of a black by a white cop there is rioting and chaos. This is deliberate so that the corrupt DOJ gets involved. The involvement by the DOJ causes the local police to be put under DOJ rules and control, in effect federalizing the local police force. When enough local police forces are under federal control martial law becomes the next step. That is how socialism works.
Slick propaganda. That bullshlt story is filled with errors and innuendos. Sometimes I think that these sphincters are just promoters of obama’s plot to take over with a federal police force. These morons writing this garbage usually have hidden issues with their own personal backgrounds.
Who wrote this article? obama? Sharpton?
I want the admin who run this web site to take a good look at the crap that Amanda Warren has posted about the police killing so many people. Where the hell does she get her data from. Most every big city in this country that is run by a black adminestration is virtually a war zone. Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Flint, Boston, Philly, Camdon, just to name a few are run by black administrations. These cities are the homes for thousands of black or Mexican gangs who are well armed and who the police have deal with. The police do not go around executing people. 90% of homicides in this country are of blacks and the perpatrators are also black. This is a fact that many people do not want to accept but is true. Clean up the gangs and quite blamming the police every time a black is shot while doing a crime. I know I will be labeled a racist from this day on but facts are facts.
you evid devils actually believe what you write or you’re just stupid? You don’t believe her stats but you want us to believe yours? How typical of the likes of you!!!
You’ll never take me alive COPPER.
my motto “an armed society is a polite society”.
In the United States, every 8 hours, a police officer kills someone.
Every 8 hours, a name is tweeted:
I’m not convinced that anybody died in So. Car. Or, if they did, that the shooter wasn’t an MK Ultra shooter. The timing again was propitious, and the bills seem already written.
We’re being had, folks.
Most cops are good guys, but there are more ex-military, trained killers among them. It is a matter for concern.
The one person here speaking some common sense!
want to talk about ” where is the discussion?” 200 people are killed by drunk drivers every WEEK. get your fuckin priorities straight and stop pretending like you’re out for a good cause.
