Charleston Shooting and Justice - Guns or Not

The justice (and not only "if not guns then peace and ever so"):

It may very well be that the torture rates of USA are significantly lower because with guns people are able to revenge. In other parts of the World, one is in lack of this and therefore people commit the most awful acts against one another (more so than in USA, not an angel-country itself).

Therefore, I'd like you to consider
* guns equals less torture (less molestation and traumatizing of children)
* no guns equals more torture than if guns are present like in USA, the only country where guns are present to this degree.

Do not forget, please, that USA has become the most powerful nation based on its virtues and one of these virtues is the 2nd amendment right, the right to own arms (preferably only small arms).

One thing is to die from a gunshot, but a whole other thing is to die from torture, perhaps taken to the most extreme, both in terms of time and of mental pain. Torture must be seen as straight evil in today's World when even the military issue may be seen as excess due to overwhelming power from NATO and UN (UN Sec. Council).

Our legal systems worldwide aren't perfect, surely. But the system in USA edges more toward a desired system than in rest of the World.

Just think of where you want to live. Do you want to live in a poor country? One hears of no torture in South Africa, but is it really so beautiful? And so on for every other country...

The victims to gun violence must be seen as a sacrifice for keeping torture and widespread abuse of children to rather low levels. It could be European levels and they are not good at all!

From a citizen in Europe, a system much overrated in terms of legal systems.

The disturbing facts in terms of suicides, separating the "nature" of suicides in USA and everywhere else, purely due to selfdefence (guns being part):
It's stated that "Approximately one-half of suicides are committed by firearm, accounting for two-thirds of all firearms deaths. [21,334 of 33,599 in 2014]"[24-reference]
Those are decent suicides! In Europe we do all sorts of crazy things in order to (finally) die because either it's the corrupt authorities hunting the suicide candidates only to get more torture on them. A corruption we in Europe usually never can do anything about because the self-protection is outlawed, that is, guns, pepperspray, tazers and killer knives. And that's after the 20 times the suicide candidates "bounce" about before they die!

"The same article [USA Today] stated that there are far fewer homicides than suicides in the country; in fact, homicide rates have fallen by half in the U.S. since 1991."
So homicides are bad, but the numbers are improving and the victims have gotten the death by gun shot, not tortured a few times first as in Europe.

For the instances of torture in Europe, pick out the stats for murders, missing people and a good portion of the suicides who "failed" to die when tortured!

At spot no. 48 USA comes in with 12.6 per 100 000 people.
At spot no. 102 Norway comes in with 9.3 per 100 K people.
Hurray! At spot no. 123 United Kingdom comes in with 7.4 per 100 K people.
Now, from the above and given Europe's tendency to sodomy, corruption and lying for the facade, also for protection (because a wounded prey in Europe usually gets "taken" quickly).

You know, I happen to think that USA takes it (accepts the deaths, some also "beautiful"), all factors considered! (Don't say you're young, please, because then you have quite a bit of learning to do!)

Note: There's a further question for this 9-killer shooter. Should he see the death penalty or how long should he sit in prison because of this?

  1. At least for suicides:

  2. Information to the British public:
    I have sent this text (the main text) to BBC Have your say and they should have strong duties in acting on this!

  3. Also in terms of BBC World if not "BBC Europe" (I guess where they are). This is a serious matter in Europe, one that possibly propagates the most grievous torture throughout every day!

  4. Concerning the gun debate, I'd like to question the experts/"experts" and how perverts handle guns.

    Not only are perverts likely to shoot themselves in the head ("aaarrrgghh, this head must come OFF!"), but they also, generally, HATE guns, whether the thunder of it or that the shooting is "white"/good, that is, the fear to be shot by goodness, for one strange reason or other (I happen to think they hate justice, as this also is goodness.)

    I find that the experts/"experts" hide the facts of perverts handling guns (poorly)!

  5. New news: not that I let go of the corrupt (small) parts of USA, but we in Europe and elsewhere need to understand that Google, Facebook, Intel, AMD and others are purely due to US American character by respect to Human Rights and their own citizens by gun rights and other for self-defence, plus, plus, plus... This is the hard lesson for all places outside USA.

  6. New deal, original Norwegian text:
    "Jeg tenker jo at dette med overgrep også handler om barn, ikke minst og en del menn og kvinner. Lederen for Landsforeningen for voldsofre har tatt til orde for lovlig pepperspray og tåregass "der hvor politiet ikke makter å gjøre jobben". Jeg tenker kanskje pistoler/revolvere kan være på sin plass og kanskje dermed unngå debatten om maskingevær/maskinpistoler. Slik at geværer da blir brukt til jaktsammenheng, først og fremst. Pistoler/revolvere har jo bare disse 50m. Kanskje ikke det verste å kontrollere."

  7. New deal in the gun debate and pro self-defence:
    I think that abuse/severe abuse/torture is also about children, most certainly, and some men and women. The leader of the National Association for Victims of Violence is saying that they support lawful pepper spray and tear gas "where the police are unable to do the job". I think maybe pistols/revolvers may be appropriate and maybe, thus, avoid the debate about automatic rifles/submachine guns. As such, rifles should then be used for hunting, primarily. Pistols/revolvers only have this range of 50 m. Perhaps not the worst to control.

  8. (What psychologists and others should have said is:) Perverts/sodomistic people/most hideous criminals handle pistols/revolvers and pepperspray poorly if not blowing their brains out directly, so there is an immediate duty to get self-defence with most people as soon as possible! Get it?!

  9. Psychology - Relating to recent tv about Psychopaths (and other morally depraved people), they sure do know to pick a weaker opponent. Maybe they are the more likely abuser part of domestic violence, men beating their women and children.

    For the military battlefield, also weak combatants?

    Again, the self-defence speaks more for the good people than for the "moral deviants"/devious criminals. ("Professional") Criminals are always involved in criminal networks and therefore have an easy/easier access to self-defence (at least in Europe) as so often pointed out. Again, the self-defence can move mountains in terms of Human Rights (UDHR). Please, don't use Amnesty International as counter-argument...

  10. It must be recognized that the weapon has always defended the faith of the religious and I am sure the religious has the toughness for the gunfight as well in such order that they usually win or get out of harms way, one of two!

  11. You may say that you are peaceful when you are against the revolvers (or pistols), but if the World is that peaceful then the revolver is hung up on the office wall and becomes a symbol of that very peace!

    (Don't try it, you "peace-lovers"!)

    And don't you forget about the situation for the gun-less Jews upon the Kristallnacht! Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht
