STOP PRESS. The Muslim terrorist killed around fifty unarmed people in the Orlando nightclub, a gun-free massacre zone by law. Although President Obama obviously knows the "gun-free" zones in San Bernardino, Umpqua College, the Charleston AME Church... increased the slaughter, he wants even more "gun-free" massacre zones. Does he agree with ObamaCare Professor Gruber who says "the American people are too stupid to understand the difference?" all Open Page in a new Tab.

Obama has signed
yet more gun controls which enables criminals and terrorists to rob, murder and rape even more defenseless innocents. So are they "common sense" as he says, or does it actually make no sense to create even more "gun-free" massacre zones? What's your considered opinion?

The Feds have armed 67 federal agencies unaffiliated with the Department of Defense, such as Agriculture, EPA, HHS, NOAA, Small Business Administration and even the Smithsonian Institution. There are now
more federal paper-pushers authorized to carry firearms than US Marines!

Shouldn't your citizens also be encouraged to defend themselves from violent criminals and terrorists? As a law-abiding citizen you have a choice: Do you submit to such
orders which contravene the Constitution he pledged to uphold? Or do you respect the Constitution, the foundation of law and order in the USA?

1. The police know how to reduce casualties...

Would as many as ten people have died at Umpqua College, nine people in the historic AME Black Church shooting tragedy in Charleston, etc., etc. if a law-abiding responsible citizen had been armed?

The vast majority of police do NOT think so. In
the PoliceOne survey of over 15,000 law enforcement professionals: all Open Page in a new Tab

"A full 86 percent feel that casualties would have been reduced ... in recent tragedies like Newtown and Aurora if a legally-armed citizen was present."

Murdered Senator Pinckney voted to ensure his church is a gun-free massacre zone and tragically suffered the consequences - along with eight fellow parishioners. If the slain Democratic Senator had survived, would the attack have changed his mind like Ohio Democrat Representative Michael Debose?

Martin Luther King's home was always guarded by armed men and he was denied a concealed-carry permit by gun-control fanatics in 1956. Daisy Bates carried a .32-caliber handgun in her purse. "Time and again, guns have proven pivotal to the African American quest for freedom." Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas - an African-American - fully agrees.

African-American Statesman Frederick Douglass proposed: "a good revolver" when asked in 1850 what he believed to be the best response to the Fugitive Slave Act. Gun rights protected many blacks during the civil rights movement - and if they had not been illegal in Senator Pinckney's church would have protected innocent black Americans today...

2. With more legal guns, there are fewer defenseless citizens

Why do Edgewater in Florida, Calhoun and Kennesaw in Georgia, Mauldin in South Carolina, and Belton and Lake Jackson in Texas all enjoy such low violent crime? No violent career criminals to prey on their citizens! They didn't get rid of their violent criminals by encouraging their law-abiding citizens to be able to defend their families. But Kennesaw did and violent crime dropped by 74%, it's now around a third of the FBI National Average.

Visionary leaders in both Colorado State and Kennesaw realized that increasing the number of responsible people who can protect their loved ones and reducing the number of violent career criminals would reduce violent crime. Can your city achieve similar success? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Either directly or indirectly discourage your criminals! Open Page in a new Tab or Window

Criminologists Rossi and Wright survey found that
criminals are more afraid of armed victims than the police Open Page in a new Tab or Window, that's why Chicago and Houston have very different crime rates Open Page in a new Tab or Window, despite their similarities Open Page in a new Tab or Window.

Experience proves that, apart from criminals and people who profit from crime, everybody gains when your qualified citizens are encouraged to defend themselves, their family and their property from violent criminals and rapists. Even those who object to responsible residents being armed enjoy the major reductions in crime as well as the
economic growth Open Page in a new Tab or Window it brings.

CLICK HERE to see if encouraging your citizens to defend their families will work for you.
Will becoming much Tougher on Criminals without without increasing taxes or spending more money work for your city? Will it give you substantial violent crime reductions? It depends: How high is your robbery rate? How many violent career criminals see your city as home?
  1. Violent crime immediately dropped by 48% at Colorado State as soon as they encouraged concealed carry.
  2. Kennesaw's violent crime rate is now two-thirds LOWER than the National Average.
  3. Is your violent crime rate HIGHER than National Average? If so, you probably have more than your fair share of violent criminals committing your violent crimes...
Colorado State and Kennesaw have so little violent crime because being much Tougher on Criminals convinced their violent career criminals they could get injured by their prey. It motivated them to move somewhere else!

equally congested Chicago and Houston Open Page in a new Tab or Window their very different gun policies result in very different crime rates. Open Page in a new Tab or Window Violent criminals fear being injured everywhere so the more that responsible people have guns, the less violent crime.

3. FBI report confirms: Even More Guns, Even Less Crime

Writing in the Wall Street Journal (paywall protected), Jason Riley examines FBI data with crucial findings for gun policy Open Page in a new Tab or Window. And the latest FBI crime report confirms the same findings. Open Page in a new Tab or Window

"The FBI report says that violent crime continues to fall nationwide, which might annoy liberals because gun purchases continue to rise. In the first six months of 2013 “All violent crime showed decreases... compared with the first six months of 2012,” according to the FBI. Overall, violent crime in the U.S. fell by 5.4 percent. The left likes to link violent crime to the proliferation of guns in the country, so it’s worth noting that the crime reductions described in the FBI report correlate with a steady increase in firearm sales."

But that’s not all, it shows that even more guns cause even less crime:

"Gun-ownership rates in the South (50%) far exceed gun-ownership rates in the Northeast (22%), yet violent crime is down more in the South than in the Northeast, according to the FBI statistics."

Front-line police officers know that legally armed citizens reduce crime Open Page in a new Tab or Window. Why should honest citizens suffer because naive people understand neither criminal motivation nor that even more guns in law-abiding hands cause even less crime?

All around the world,
every place that has banned guns has increased its violent crime rate Open Page in a new Tab or Window, so who nurtures the irrational nonsense that encouraging more guns in law-abiding hands causes more crime? Open Page in a new Tab or Window

4. Convicted Felons: "I wouldn't step foot in Kennesaw"

Header Underline

The fact that every home in Kennesaw is armed acts as a very strong deterrent to violent criminals. According to their previous Police Chief Dwayne Wilson, felons said they would avoid Kennesaw Open Page in a new Tab or Window because they were afraid of armed victims who can defend themselves.

Attorney Fred D. Bentley, Sr. concurs. He was counsel for the town and authored the famous ordinance in 1982. He is absolutely certain that
guns are contributing to the peace in his now far larger city Open Page in a new Tab or Window. "We have had one murder and that was with a knife," he says with a chuckle and continued...

"We had a warden of a penitentiary in Florida poll his prisoners after our ordinance came out, and the answer to his poll was this:

"I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to go to [gun-free Morton Grove, Illinois,]
but I wouldn't step foot in [well-armed Kennesaw, Georgia.]''

5. Citizens value being able to defend their families

Header Underline
What's the political fuss about encouraging people's Second Amendment right to armed defense? Many Democrats oppose responsible citizens being able to protect their families from violent criminals with a gun. Yet if it were true that fewer guns in law-abiding hands lower the crime rate, then America should disarm the police - it would cause less crime!

Some anti-gun Democratic politicians understand how ridiculous this would be. Do they realize
an ever increasing majority know that a gun in the house makes you safer? all Open Page in a new Tab. They have guns and armed guards to defend them - which, given their incessant anti-gun rhetoric, many see as hypocritical:

But Rev. Michael DeBose is more honest. Ohio Democrat Rep. Pastor Michael DeBose had twice voted against Right to Carry laws - yet got a CHL permit as soon as he was attacked by armed thugs.

"I was wrong, I'm going to get a permit and so is my wife. I've changed my mind. You need a way to protect yourself and your family. If more people were packing guns, it might serve as a deterrent."

Devout Democrat Justin Cronin's anti-gun beliefs were challenged when fleeing Hurricane Rita in a SUV with his wife and children. He had "not so much as a heavy book to throw" to defend his loved ones - which eliminated his lifelong aversion to guns!

There are substantial upside benefits and little downside risk to encouraging your law-abiding citizens to be able to defend their families from violent criminals, rapists, refugees, and terrorists, so
who nurtures the fiction that guns in law-abiding hands increase crime?

6. Benefits to encouraging self-defense

How thoroughly have they checked it out? Do Democrats appreciate the tremendous benefits such as the immediate large drop in violent crime, the substantial economic growth Open Page in a new Tab, the reduction in racial tensions Open Page in a new Tab and the improvements in police performance Open Page in a new Tab that encouraging law-abiding citizens to defend their families brings?

Police guns protect them from violent criminals and guns in responsible hands do exactly the same. So encourage gun ownership - it completely complements everything your police are currently doing to fight crime. Yet since the police are the crime-fighting experts, politicians like that they support
the crime reductions that it brings as well as the increased protection for their law-abiding citizens.

7. How to reduce your violent crime substantially

Three Cities with different Violent Crime Rates
Three Cities with different Violent Crime Rates
Explore the facts, click here to enlarge image. If your community has a strict gun ban, then your violent crime may be like Chicago - a LOT MORE crime, 150% HIGHER than the US National Average. In Texas, most Childress citizens have guns and they have similar violent crime to National. The guns your citizens own are already deterring many criminals all across the country.

But look at the enormous difference Discouraging Criminals makes. Violent crime in Kennesaw, Georgia immediately dropped by 74% and their citizens are far safer today. Since most households have guns, their violent criminals - who don't know who is armed - have stopped attacking their people. So Kennesaw also enjoys far less property crime - much less than National Average.

Is your crime rate higher than the rest of America? See your city's
FBI crime numbers here. Open Page in a new Tab or Window Are the FBI numbers accurate? When cities and counties send monthly crime numbers to their State Agency, it passes them on to the FBI who verify and publish the totals in the fall. We researched this, so assuming no mistakes your city's FBI crime totals accurately reflect the crimes you reported.

Your citizens' safety depends on many factors (CLICK HERE). Because discouraging violent criminals from attack needs an ordinance - your politicians' responsibility - you can't blame the police for not having implemented it. But since the police are the local crime-reducing experts, to support its amazing benefits for your community needs them to know how and why discouraging criminals works so well. Open Page in a new Tab
Violent crimes are committed by violent individuals. Their number varies with the population demographics, income, age, ethnic origin, education, marital status, conviction offenses, numbers employed, people on welfare, the transient population, and various other factors. Yes indeed, comparing the crime rates of different cities and counties is not simple, while variations are subject to the vagaries of low numbers.

Fundamentally, your violent crime rate depends on the number of violent individuals willing to use force against other citizens.
The FBI has confirmed and John Lott's detailed study: More Guns, Less Crime proved that the number of criminals willing to commit violent crimes decreases as the chances of being injured in an attack increases Open Page in a new Tab or Window...

UGO makes your city safer for everybody by making it unsafe for violent criminals, it tells them they'll likely get shot attacking one of your citizens. It works right alongside all your other strategies to reduce crime. Whether they choose to avoid your town - or are locked up - fewer violent criminals means fewer violent crimes!

8. Having a Gun Remains Completely Your Choice

Header Underline
Discouraging Criminals by either indirectly or directly encouraging your citizens to be able to defend themselves, their family and their property is very clever, owning a gun is entirely optional.

So why bother?

For many very good reasons,
listen to the 2 minute explanation to the skeptical Police Chief here. Open Page in a new Tab It works! Both indirectly and directly encouraging gun ownership dramatically reduces violent crime by persuading your violent criminals they'll be injured if they attack any of your people!

The default changes for any unarmed people holding the middle ground. If they don't feel strongly about being armed, responsible citizens don't have a gun. Whereas encouragement helps persuade your law-abiding citizens who have absolutely no objection to get one - including those who couldn't be bothered previously.

You still have your local requirements for a Concealed Handgun License and gun safety training. With the outcry exacerbated by all the criminals, the FREE publicity improves your economic development by getting rid of your violent predators...

9. Your Whole Community will Thrive and Prosper

Your community will become safer for everyone. Since violent criminals fear being shot by an armed victim, the knowledge that ALL their prey are armed is a very strong motivation not to attack anyone. The guns owned by your residents are already deterring criminals. And even more guns deter violent crime even more.

Yet encouraging gun ownership has many other benefits apart from the obvious. Since sexual predators as well as hardened criminals are deterred from violence making everyone safer, your community becomes an even more desirable place to live:

12. The media bias against armed self-defense

Header Underline
Americans know a gun protects them from violent criminals. The fewer defenseless citizens unable to defend their families, the less violent crime. Since 1991, the number of guns in America has doubled and violent crime has halved. Yet the study title shows the media bias: It should read "BECAUSE OF lower crime rates, support for gun rights increases" rather than "DESPITE lower crime rates..."

Why is there so much negative publicity about guns? Because the powers-that-be, those who control the economy and the media, are willing to lie to have you disarmed. They follow Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's philosophy - if you tell a big enough lie for long enough, people will believe it.

Their media campaign is both relentless and enormous but not over-whelming, many people are willing to think for themselves.
The latest Pew Research poll finds an ever increasing majority of Americans know that a gun in the house makes you safer Open Page in a new Tab. Those who know guns protect you from violent criminals has dramatically increased in virtually all categories, especially in blacks.

So discourage violent criminals and terrorists from attacking your people. Encourage your qualified, law-abiding citizens to be able to defend themselves, their family and their property. Both concealed carry as well as the discretionary ordinance are entirely optional - there's no penalty and they're exempt from complying if they object for any reason at all!

Despite media misunderstanding and much misrepresentation, Universal Gun Ownership is not coercive, it's neither Mandatory Gun Ownership nor Compulsory Gun Ownership. It's simply a choice to be prepared to defend themselves and their loved ones from a violent criminal in advance...
