Cause and Effect Being Armed edition

Noticed this inter­est­ing story from the AP & Time con­cern­ing civil­ian gun ownership:

There are over 1 bil­lion firearms in the world today, includ­ing 857 mil­lion in civil­ian hands — with Amer­i­can men and women the dom­i­nant own­ers, accord­ing to a study released Monday.

The Small Arms Sur­vey says 393 mil­lion of the civilian-​held firearms, 46 per­cent, are in the United States, which is “more than those held by civil­ians in the other top 25 coun­tries combined.”

I found the fol­low­ing stat par­tic­u­larly interesting:

The esti­mate of over 1 bil­lion firearms world­wide at the end of 2017 also includes 133 mil­lion such weapons held by gov­ern­ment mil­i­tary forces and 22.7 mil­lion by law enforce­ment agen­cies, it said.

So think about this, if these esti­mates are cor­rect the United States Civil­ian pop­u­la­tion has more arms than the worlds mil­i­tary forces and law enforce­ment agen­cies COMBINED.

And yet the United States is the freest and rich­est large coun­try in the world, a des­ti­na­tion so desired that peo­ple all over the world try to get here legally or illegally.

I sub­mit and sug­gest that there is a cor­re­la­tion between the free­dom of Amer­ica, the wealth and Amer­ica and the fact that its cit­i­zens are so well armed, and I fur­ther sug­gest that it is in the places where civil­ians are not allowed to be legally armed that Amer­i­cans, mostly poor or of color, are more preyed upon because those who would prey upon them know they have lit­tle to fear.

The prospect of fac­ing an armed pop­u­la­tion is the best restraint against tyranny.

An early inci­dent is par­tic­u­larly instruc­tive in how effec­tive these new tac­tics were. The KKK was very active in Mon­roe, with an esti­mated 7,500 mem­bers in a town of 12,000. After hear­ing rumors that the Klan intended to attack NAACP chap­ter Vice Pres­i­dent Dr. Albert Perry’s house, Williams and mem­bers of the Black Armed Guard sur­rounded the doctor’s house with sand­bags and showed up with rifles. Klans­man fired on the house from a mov­ing vehi­cle and the Guard returned fire. Soon after, the Klan required a spe­cial per­mit from the city’s police chief to meet. One inci­dent of self-​defense did more to move the goal­posts than all pre­vi­ous leg­isla­tive pres­sure had.

Monroe’s Black Armed Guard wasn’t a sub­sidiary of the Com­mu­nist Party, nor an inde­pen­dent orga­ni­za­tion like the Black Pan­ther Party that would use sim­i­lar tac­tics of arm­ing their mem­bers later. In fact, “Black Armed Guard” was noth­ing more than a fancy name for an offi­cially char­tered National Rifle Asso­ci­a­tion chapter.

Noticed this interesting story from the AP & Time concerning civilian gun ownership:

There are over 1 billion firearms in the world today, including 857 million in civilian hands — with American men and women the dominant owners, according to a study released Monday.

The Small Arms Survey says 393 million of the civilian-held firearms, 46 percent, are in the United States, which is “more than those held by civilians in the other top 25 countries combined.”

I found the following stat particularly interesting:

The estimate of over 1 billion firearms worldwide at the end of 2017 also includes 133 million such weapons held by government military forces and 22.7 million by law enforcement agencies, it said.

So think about this, if these estimates are correct the United States Civilian population has more arms than the worlds military forces and law enforcement agencies COMBINED.

And yet the United States is the freest and richest large country in the world, a destination so desired that people all over the world try to get here legally or illegally.

I submit and suggest that there is a correlation between the freedom of America, the wealth and America and the fact that its citizens are so well armed, and I further suggest that it is in the places where civilians are not allowed to be legally armed that Americans, mostly poor or of color, are more preyed upon because those who would prey upon them know they have little to fear.

The prospect of facing an armed population is the best restraint against tyranny.

One incident of self-defense did more to move the goalposts than all previous legislative pressure had.

Monroe’s Black Armed Guard wasn’t a subsidiary of the Communist Party, nor an independent organization like the Black Panther Party that would use similar tactics of arming their members later. In fact, “Black Armed Guard” was nothing more than a fancy name for an officially chartered National Rifle Association chapter.
