Reader’s Letter: The criminal loving lunatic leftPOSTED: 10/4/12 12:43 PM
The pro-criminal anti-gun, anti-self-defense senseless comments of some in the liberal media never ceases the amaze me. In response to a recent letter by Leopold James entitled “Kneejerk” The editor of the Today noted that “the link between immigration “legal or not” and crime is obviously ludicrous”. Since the editor of the Today newspaper is a recent arrival, I believe it’s necessary for me to bring him up to speed on some of the historical facts of crime on St. Maarten.
The first armed bank robbery at the Chase Manhattan Bank at the Mullet Bay Resort was committed by foreigners, the first ever casino armed robbery at the Atlantis Casino were committed by foreigners. Ninety five percent of all murders, armed robberies, home invasions and rapes are committed by foreigners or children of foreigners.
The criminal thugs terrorizing Dutch Quarter, Middle Region, Cay Bay and French St. Maarten are children of Haitians, Jamaicans, Dominicanos and others. Approximately 80% of all convicted criminals in the Point Blanche prison are foreigners, or children of foreigners; many carry local names. However, they are naturalized by some old local fools. On the promenade in Philipsburg there is some drug dealing St. Kitts criminals, daily terrorizing tourist and locals alike, again naturalized by some local fool. Criminal foreigners are the real problem.
The editor went on to say in his note that “Peter Gunn may start to reconsider his stance on gun possession taught, now that an American father has fatally shot his 15-year-old son because he thought he was dealing with a burglar in his back yard”. The editor forgot to mention that on that same day, an American father backed his car out of his garage and ran over his 2-year-old son playing in the driveway. Should we now not ban cars? The American couple that was recently murdered was bludgeoned to death with knives or other sharp objects. Should we now not ban knives? Since in your logic guns kill people and not criminals; should we not also ban spoons, because they make people fat?
Countries with the strictest gun control laws such as Jamaica, Mexico, Trinidad, South Africa, Guyana and others have the highest murder, rape, home invasions armed robbery and personal assaults in the world. In the United States guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defence. Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year — or about 6,850 times a day. This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives. Of the 2.5 million times citizens use their guns to defend themselves every year, the overwhelming majority merely brandish their gun or fire a warning shot to scare off their attackers. Less than 8% of the time, a citizen will kill or wound his/her attacker. As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse. One never sees on the evening news when people use firearms to defend themselves, property, love ones and or neighbours. While firearm deaths in the U.S. in 2010 were 8,775 (FBI Stats) 90% were by criminals in gun control inner cities such as Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles etc. Vehicle deaths in the U.S. in 2010 were 32,885 (DOT states) Now since vehicles kill over four times the amount of people than criminals with guns do. I think it’s about time we ban vehicles.
The lowest crime cities in America are the cities with the most liberal gun laws. Some are Scottsdale, AZ, Plano, TX, Virginia Beach, VA and Kennesaw GA – where gun ownership is mandatory. It’s not the “Wild West” like some people predicted when it passed a mandatory gun ownership law. “The city of Kennesaw was selected by Family Circle magazine as one of the nation’s ‘10 best towns for families.’
Until we can outlaw crime and criminals, people will have to defend themselves, property and love ones with whatever tools necessary. Self-Defence is a God given right. What amasses me with the anti-gun lefties is that they don’t want you to have the right to self-defence, yet they are against a mandatory life sentence and the death penalty for first degree murderers. Those that have a history of invading homes, robbing business owners and assaulting woman surely don’t want their victims armed. A false sense of reality, deception, diversion and delusion the trade mark of the lunatic left.
At Today, we have no problem offering space to the lunatic right to vent opinions.
