YouTube prankster Mark Dice has no problem convincing anti-gun college students that they should support the imprisonment or execution of lawful gun owners in the U.S.

These are the kind of people who we are fighting against to preserve our 2nd amendment rights.

AP_maryland_mall_shooting_5_jt_140125_16x9_992This past week a mentally unstable teenager committed a murder-suicide at a mall in in Maryland.

Every time a shooting like this happens we are left with more questions than answers. There is no truth to be said here other than mental illness and the ability to create violence can lead to severe consequences. While the media will always try to make sense of the senseless, we must take a look at the facts surrounding crime and violence in the state of Maryland.

In this chart presented, we have a look at total crime rates in Maryland over a 34 year period, which was pulled directly from the state website. The trend is that if you are a resident of Maryland, you are as safer than ever before. It is easy to highlight the most shocking crimes committed, and extrapolate them to a national audience via 24/7 news networks. This causes people to act out of fear and relinquish their responsibilities as citizens to authorities in the name of security. It’s not that people are “sheep” in a derogatory manner; it’s that they are bombarded daily by a media that sells fear. This fearmongering is a danger to all those who value their liberty and are able to see the larger picture.

Rather than focus on the real issue at hand and possible solutions to this mental health crisis, the mainstream media would rather focus on how scary the gun looked, how easy it was to buy the gun, and how many pellets were inside of each shotgun shell. In the most recent article by CNN, they also thought it was necessary to end the article with a list of every recent shooting across America that would incite fear into readers. A simple Google search of “Shooting in Chicago” shows pages upon pages of recent shootings that are swept under the rug, because they don’t fall in line with the mainstream media’s political fearmongering agenda.

The real issue at hand for this particular scenario is that a 19 year old decided to murder two people without any clear motive. This kind of irrational behaviour is a mixture between immaturity and other psychological factors. While, I can’t say I’ve never been angry with someone before, I can say I was always able to figure out a way to solve my problems without murder and suicide. The people who commit these kinds of acts are not normal, they are abnormal. We must treat them as the isolated incidents they are, and not blame the murder weapon but the murderer himself. That is the only way there will be accountability for one’s own actions.

Until then, remember that getting someone psychological help is nothing to be ashamed of, it could be a matter of life or death. Don’t be the person on the news claiming you never saw anything odd about a person’s behaviour. The responsibility is ours until the government takes it away. Take pride in that.

This list was comprised using supplemental information from non-Federal agencies and compiled by the FBI. Now, it’s important to know that this is not a complete list, but it does offer some insight into the violence issues that affect U.S. citizens each year.

#7: Washington D.C. Metro Police did not offer any data to the FBI, but according to various news reports, 2012 was the first year the nation’s capital had under 100 murders, a first since 1963.

#6: The FBI reports reflect that the murder rate by guns is higher in frequency than the murder rate by knives by almost 6 to 1.

#5: Hawaii, New Hampshire, North/South Dakota, Utah, Vermont and Wyoming all reported under 10 firearm deaths for 2012.

#4: Your chance of being killed by a knife is highest in California (261), Texas (173) and New York (126).

#3: In no State were knife murders higher than gun murders. The closest reported was Vermont with 2 gun, and 2 knife related murders, while Alaska reported 11 gun related and 9 knife related murders.

#2: 86% of the reported murders in Illinois were committed with a firearm.

#1: California leads the nation at 1879 murders in 2012. California, known in the gun community as “The People’s Republik of Kalifornia”, has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, but surprisingly tops our list in both categories with 1,304 murders by firearm and 261 by knife.

The President of Desert Tech (previously Desert Tactical Arms) recently revealed that he turned down a contract for 15 million dollars to Pakistan based on morals.

How do you say no to 15 million dollars when you are a small growing business? According to the Sales Manager of Desert Tech, Mike Davis, the answer was simple, “You say no”. The reason behind his answer is something we probably don’t hear enough of these days. President of Desert Tech, Nicholas Young, posted this to the Desert Tech Facebook page yesterday and it went viral:

The response from the firearms and military community has been overwhelming praise for their difficult decision, which places the safety of our military members over a massive paycheck. 

To some people, hearing about a weapons manufacturing company turning down 15 million dollars based on morals may seem shocking, but to the Desert Tech team it was a pretty easy decision. In a recent interview the CEO of Desert Tech, Tommy Alexander, stated “We just didn’t feel comfortable with the morality of giving those guns, when they might end up in the wrong hands.”

“The company was founded on the principle of keeping Americans and our allied forces safe,” said sales manager Mike Davis. “We’re not saying that Pakistan would get the weapons and do anything bad with them, but there’s just a heavy set of unrest over there.”
