谈到枪支和美国人,这里(感谢布雷迪防止枪支暴力运动)为您提供了一些统计数据: 每年 平均有 17,102 名儿童和青少年以及 116,255 名美国人在“谋杀、袭击、自杀和自杀未遂、意外枪击或警察干预”中被枪杀。 这不会无缘无故地发生。 考虑这些 最近的估计 来自枪支研究组织“小武器调查”(Small Arms Survey) 的报告:“截至 857 年底,全世界大约有 2017 亿支民用枪支……国家拥有率从美国每 120.5 名居民拥有大约 100 支枪支到不到 1 支不等。在印度尼西亚、日本、马拉维和几个太平洋岛国等国家,每 100 名居民拥有枪支。” 事实上,美国 线索 世界其他地区在枪支拥有量方面遥遥领先,在这个国家拥有 45 亿支武器中的 857%(你自己算算)。 饱受战争蹂躏的也门排在第二位。

在2017 皮尤研究中心研究 发现 48% 的美国白人男性、25% 的白人女性、25% 的非白人男性和 16% 的非白人女性拥有枪支,正如玛格丽特·塔尔博特一样 纽约客, “一半的枪支拥有者表示所有权对他们的身份至关重要。” 不过,有一个问题。 如果您有购买枪支以增强自己的自我认同感的原始冲动,那么您最好留出一点时间来这样做。 毕竟,它 a 费城问询报 记者全部 七分钟 在佛罗里达州帕克兰大屠杀后不久购买 AR-15 半自动步枪,仅用了 38 分钟。 赫芬顿邮报,在 AR-15 式武器上市两天后在奥兰多购买同样的武器 用过的 在Pulse夜总会屠杀49人。

现在,作为 TomDispatch 定期 威廉·哈同报道,唐纳德·特朗普和他的政府决心通过真正努力将这种致命的小武器广泛传播,使这个星球成为一个真正的美国星球。 嘿,这样想吧:在苹果以万亿美元的市值登上头条后的几周内,特朗普政府有希望在全球平民手中达到万亿枪支大关。 现在这将是一个成就! 对我们的全球身份有多大的推动作用! 美国! 美国!

  1. Joe Stalin 说:

    Well, in the People’s Republic of Illinois, it would take over a MONTH to purchase an AR-15, assuming it wasn’t BANNED in the various Communist-Democrat Fiefdoms like Cook County, Chicago or Aurora.

    Don’t believe me? To obtain a gun, you have to first send an ID photo and money to the IL State Police and then wait a MONTH or so for them to send back to you a Firearms Owners ID Card. Now can I go to the gun store and pick up my AR-15? NO! Due to the RINO Gov. Rauner signing new legislation, I can ORDER the gun, and have to wait 72 hours to pick it up. After 72 hours, can I just go and pay my money for the weapon and take it? NO! Now I have to pay money for an FBI so-called “Instant Check” so they can verify I am allowed to take ownership of the weapon.

    Isn’t it funny how anti-gunners want to DECREASE efficiency in obtaining a firearm (TWO trips to the gun shop; how much money and time is wasted to make Cosmopolitan gun controllers happy? Oh, the poor environment!) when EXACTLY the same could be accomplished with the simple FBI Check?

    And to think a half-century ago, Americans were able to order a Combat Rifle like a Cetme 7.62×51 semi-auto rifle and have it delivered to your door via MAIL ORDER.

  2. Joe Stalin 说:

    “What a boost for our global identity! USA! USA!”

    What do gun controllers fear the absolute worst? Armed civilians taking on their corrupt government.

    In the USA, this occurred in the celebrated “Battle of Athens” in 1946:

    “The Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of predatory policing, police brutality, political corruption and voter intimidation. ”

    Made into a Hallmark movie broadcast across America in 1992:

    It’s like I was asking this Chinese guy who lived during the Cultural Revolution about allowing people guns: ‘They would NEVER allow people guns because they would turn them on the government.’

  3. Joe Stalin 说:

    The Gwangju Massacre occurred in 1980 in South Korea and the locals went nuts and seized smallarms from the local armory:

  4. Per/Norway 说:

    never give up your guns Murica!!
    they have taken ours and see how well defended our young ones and women are in Europe!
    NEVER EVER GIVE UP YOUR GUNS!
    in Norway i cant legally own a baton, pepperspray,slingshot or tazer/stungun, only legal self defense are tactical pens and walking canes.
    I repeat NEVER give up on your right to bear arms!

    “It’s like I was asking this Chinese guy who lived during the Cultural Revolution about allowing people guns: ‘They would NEVER allow people guns because they would turn them on the government.’”

    Actually, China’s gun control started at late 80s, 10 years after the Cultural Revolution.

    No gun control during Mao’s time, on the contrary, people were organized to practice using firearms during Mao’s time.

    Although not exactly private ownership, but every village, community, factory have a storage of guns, not difficult at all to get them if people really wanted to, as proven by a soar of crime using guns in the late 80s. That’s when China started to clear all guns at civilian level.

  6. Yee 说:

    Anyway, it’s a joke to overthrow the government with light firearms. You need NATO to bomb it, ask the Libyans and the Yugoslavians.

  7. Okay I give up: What was the point of this article?

  8. Joe Stalin 说:
    @Yee

    “Although not exactly private ownership, but every village, community, factory have a storage of guns[…]”

    “No gun control during Mao’s time, on the contrary, people were organized to practice using firearms during Mao’s time.”

    That’s like saying the ‘local National Guard Armory’ has guns that are “not difficult at all to get them if people really wanted to.” Having guns stored where the government has control over them is the exact opposite of America. Training with these weapons is of no relevance to the question at hand: private ownership. These are local Militia weapons under the auspices of some sort of government or quasi-government. Your reference to China’s gun control starting in the late 80s sounds like some sort of central government attempt to place firearms underneath it’s control in some fashion.

    Now, in America, underneath our Federal laws:

    10美国法典§246 –民兵:组成和阶级

    (a)美国民兵由所有身体健康的男性组成,这些男性年龄至少17岁,并且除标题313的第32条另有规定外,年龄在45岁以下或已宣布意图的男性成为美国国民和国民警卫队成员中的美国女性公民。
    (b)民兵的职等是-
    (1)有组织的民兵,由国民警卫队和海军民兵组成; 和
    (2)无组织的民兵,由不属于国民警卫队或海军民兵的民兵组成。

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/246

    Private citizens belong to the “unorganized militia.” The Federal government in the USA encourages firearms training amongst the “unorganized militia” through the auspices of the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

    The Federal government will sell a Combat Rifle as well as a M1911A1 .45ACP pistol to a civilian to train with and KEEP THEM AT HOME.

    @Yee

    You are exactly right; Fidel Castro NEVER overthrew the government in Cuba. It was all a dream and the CIA was never involved in the Bay of Pigs.
