Previously on SBPDL: In Face of Democrat Party Tyranny, 90% of Virginia Counties Become 2nd Amendment/Gun ‘Sanctuaries’; These Counties Are Overwhelmingly White!

The two charts below are all that should matter when considering firearm violence in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and what should happen with gun control when the new state legislature convenes (with Democrats poised to pass gun control largely targeting placid white gun owners).

The question our elected officials should be asking is two-fold: why do white males commit the overwhelming bulk of suicides with firearms in Virginia and why do black males commit the overwhelming bulk of homicides/nonfatal shootings with firearms in Virginia?

From the Virginia Department of Health “Gun Violence in Virginia” report measuring gun violence from 2014-2018, we learn:

Key Points on Gun-Related Death in Virginia

• Rates of gun-related death in Virginia (all manners) are very similar to national rates of gun-related death

• Handguns were involved in nearly 80% of homicides and nearly 80% of suicides

• Rates of gun-related suicide among men increase with age

• White men and Native American men had the highest rates of gun-related suicide

• Black males and males age 20-24 years of age had the highest rates of gun-related homicide

Again: our elected officials should be trying to ascertain why white males are primarily using firearms to commit suicide and why black males are using firearms to murder/non-fatally shoot other black males in Virginia.

Of course, the only thing Democrats are interested in doing is making it illegal for law-abiding white males to own guns in Virginia, though the primary activity these white gun owners do with their firearms is use them for suicide.

Meanwhile, the data clearly shows black males with firearms represent the clear and present danger (the data showing, as stated, white males using their firearms primarily for suicide) in Virginia.

Is it nature or nurture (the increasing anti-white system acting as a vise on all aspects of life) causing white males to use their firearms for suicide?

And is it nature or nurture compelling blacks in Virginia to use firearms to commit the overwhelming amount of fatal/non-fatal shootings in the state?

These are questions we should be asking when it comes to firearms and gun ownership, but that will remain unasked.

  1. Black males want to commit suicide at rates comparable to white males, really. It’s just that their aim isn’t very good.

  2. Augustus says:

    I remember when the education establishment (having fallen into leftist hands) decided it’s most important job was to raise the self confidence of blacks. The farther left the elite educators went, the less important actual “education” became. Universities are simply money mills for the lazy government workers now. You are considered “educated” if you agonize over choices of pronouns, see race everywhere above all else, don’t know how many sexes there are or which bathroom to use, and agonize over “white privilege.” I would expect more self confident morons to think they are far superior talents and leaders, and more suicides amongst those supposed to be “privileged,” as they fail to cope, or enjoy the expected level of social success.

    Meanwhile the problems of violence, along with failed assimilation of people into the Western/European culture continues to slowly sink the values of Western man. Values that made the nation successful throughout it’s history.

    Instead of the Virginia model of disarming the peaceful so they can be more easily oppressed, and elimination of gun ranges and shops, we should either disarm black criminals or allow safety of the public by making sure more law-abiding citizens can have the equality of firearms, and be adequately trained and practiced. The latest church shooting in Texas shows what can result when average citizens are armed and practiced.

    The country’s political elite continue to make the country fail in many basic ways. We need fewer armed criminal and voting ‘illegals’, or as my father said, “We’ll have many more Timothy McVeighs.” If I completed his statements, I’d be censored, but you can guess what may result from a record number of citizens radicalized by their own government.

  3. Please save these facts from the memory hole, but also realize facts don’t matter to shitlibs.

    Keep spreading pattern recognition and keep your powder dry.

    Does that include stupid shit White governors who dress in black face?

  5. Obviously, the DemocRATs think it’s unfair for Whites to fend off black predators long enough to eventually kill themselves, depriving some thug of the pleasure of doing it himself.  Because racial justice.

    Several decades ago, while in college, my sister took her life with sleeping pills. A few years ago my favorite nephew tried to take his life by downing the entire bottle Ritalin his parents had put him on. That just made him sick but it didn’t kill him. He kept trying and got it right on his fourth attempt by hanging himself. He probably learned the knots well from his time in the Boy Scouts.

    Both my sister and my nephew had been prescribed anti-depressant pills. An old girlfriend I dated decades ago is on them and states that they work okay for a while, but soon one gets used to them and the pills, in fact, make one more depressed, even suicidal, so it’s necessary to switch to different pills. Interestingly enough, I see no rush to outlaw anti-depressants, as they are made by (((Big Pharma))), which has Congress in its pocket, and they earn plenty of revenue.

    Other people jump in front of trains, take poison, cut their wrists, etc. If there’s a will, there’s a way.

    My point is that outlawing guns is a false argument for safety from suicides. To stop suicides, it’s necessary to to find out what’s causing someone’s depression and address it. Outlawing one tool simply leads people to look for other tools.

    Of course, when liberals wants to remove guns from law-abiding white people, they’re not concerned with the safety of those people. They’d prefer that we “deplorables” were dead, and by disarming us (while turning a blind eye to the orcs, and in fact relaxing laws that orcs typically break) they make us easy prey for the orcs.

    This is a poor interpretation of the data. This report is only talking about the VICTIMS of suicide and homicide. It has nothing to do with the perpetrators who are doing the killing (except in the case of suicide, duh).

    Other data clearly point to black males as the major perpetrators of gun-related crime. I do not disagree with the conclusion of this article, but citing this report to support that claim is disingenuous.

    Just wanted to clear that up.

    I assume PK meant that the “primary act of violence whites commit with their firearms is suicide”.

  14. Verino says:

    We need to see a coresponding graph of poverty vs gun violence. The blacks’ biggest excuse for violence is poverty. If whites are largely just as broke as blacks in Virginia, that argument shatters.

  15. The only relevant number here is the one that is never discussed (and they know why):

    “non-firing use of weapon” for self-defense from the Crime Victimization Survey.

    “firearms-related deaths” (from SWALLOWING?) is a weasel term.

  16. The bolsheviks are not concerned with blacks, it is whites they wish to destroy.

  17. unit472 says:

    White males are expected to succeed or, at least get by, in life. Unfortunately not all will ( often because inferior negroes have been given the jobs they would have held. Negroes are accustomed to failure and have the psychological defense of being able to blame ‘racism’ for their failure. They also feel no shame in being a parasite and living off the taxpayer. Its what they’ve done ever since they were emancipated.

    I suspect this difference in the outlook on life accounts for a big part in suicide rates. Also whites are better able to see the future and if it looks bleak why suffer through it. Negroes are like animals so like a dog or cow its live and be merry and let the future take care of itself ( meaning whites will have to take care of you when you no longer can care for yourself. Whites know they have to take care of themselves because negroes sure as hell won’t.

  18. RonaldB says:

    The first thing to realize is that logical and factual arguments make no dent on Democrat and many Republican, politicians, since the last thing on their minds is the well-being of their constituents, either white or black. Most elected officials are after money, power and influence. The progressives are the worst, since they are not simply neutral to the well-being of citizens, but actively work to make matters worse. Progressives are cultural Marxists, whose philosophy is to destroy the current culture as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. They identity the current culture as European, which is why all non-white peoples are privileged. Homosexuals of all stripes are also identified as counter-culture, which is why they are privileged now, although I’m sure their comrades will deal with them appropriately in the future. The Marxist utopia is not designed for diversity; it is designed for uniformity.

    One of the “vanguards of the working class” in Marxist theory is the violent street gang. The street gang does the government’s dirty work while providing deniability. The government is not able to offer the same protection to street thugs that it can to government agents; hence, armed citizens can generally protect themselves from street gangs; the government is generally not able to send the professional military after people protecting their own lives.

    So, disarming the law-abiding citizens is a way to clear the path for violent street gangs to uproot social order and any sense of community or safety. This provides a path for the government to institute government by proclamation: in other words, a dictatorship. Which is what the progressives really want. Scratch a progressive and a Stalinist bleeds.

    As to whether the leader class is simply evil, or stupid and evil, is a question for later.

    I should add to my earlier comments what happened to my nephew in high school. One day in a history class the subject of discussion was the arrival of British colonists in Kenya. The Brits were, of course, being vilified in class for looking down upon the culture of the locals, and my nephew commented that it was only natural for the Brits to do so, as the Kenyans were living in a stone age state. Their homes and clothing made that clear. Well, the teacher and the rest of the students recoiled at this very un-PC observation. It was obvious my nephew had not gotten the menu that all cultures are equal, and in fact the darker and more backward they are, the more they are to be valued. As a reward for making an honest observation, my nephew was denounced by the teacher and the entire class as a racist and forbidden from speaking in class for the rest of the semester. (Just so you know, my nephew was a really nice kid. Very shy and polite, not a troublemaker.)

    When he told me this I was floored, but it has been a long time since I was in high school, so the school environment I knew doesn’t exist any longer. Also, Northern Virginia has turned into Liberal Land, a place where Obummer and the Hildabeast are popular, and this area is one of very few that has not declared itself a Second Amendment sanctuary. The First Amendment no longer seems to apply either, and un-PC opinions are shunned, so I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised.

    I guess I also shouldn’t have been surprised that he felt he had no future in such an environment and, with his mind poisoned by Ritalin and anti-depressants, he hanged himself.

    And, just to name names, he attended McLean High School in Fairfax County. I don’t know who his teacher was but I’d sure like to catch up to him or her one day.

    I have relatives and friends who are on antidepressants. It just dawned on me, after reading a few comments, why they are so annoying. People who used to be very close friends, are no longer friends. Changes in their behavior and personalities that were probably caused by the medication. I just read an article that statins, used to treat high cholesterol, can cause personality disorders. Explains a lot about the world population.

    The suicidal white male is probably alone and doesn’t know a white male that would do it for him.

    As a White Male in Virginia, I haven’t considered suicide using a firearm recently. And I don’t KNOW anyone in Virginia who has used a firearm (or any other method) to commit suicide.

    I’m concerned more about playing with my grandchildren. I think more guys need to go watch “funny babies” videos on YouTube. Tiny little humans, many of them males, trying to make ANY sense at all out of what they encounter in the outside (i.e., outside of Mom) world.

    My understanding is that Virginia, especially North Virginia (soon to become a separate State) has one of the strongest job markets in the country. And if you don’t like the go-go lifestyle and mountains of Liberals in North Virginia, you can always move west or south, and get back to REAL Virginia. The last I heard, the largest concentration of US military (Army, Navy, Air Farce) bases in the US is centered on Norfolk. And even North Virginia is crawling with DoD offices, including the Marine base at Quantico. There ain’t a whole lotta Liberals in Quantico, which is just down the road.

    But for the statisticians out there, how closely related is “majority Liberal” neighborhoods to “blow my head off with a cheap hand gun”?

  28. The question on whether murder is nature or nurture may be answered by looking at the murder correlation between USA and South Africa having similar black populations, while located on different continents for >200 years (or about 8 generations)

    The black populations correlate 0.99 while murder correlation is 0.78

    That America on the whole has a population 5x bigger than South Africa is of course missed by most.

    Yes, military personnel do vote absentee ballot, BUT, in most states, military absentee ballots are not counted unless the election is “close”. This move disenfranchises every military voter and is used to assure that liberals (democRATS) have the “edge” in most elections.

    Just want to point out that in states that require extensive background checks in order to get a firearm purchasers ID, one of the things they as is ‘are you on and sort of prescriptive, mind altering meds and have you ever been diagnosed as having a psychological problem.

    All those parents who hooked their kids up on Ritalin or any other of the designer meth products likely also eliminated their kid’s ability to ever legally own a firearm just because junior stared out the window in kindergarten.

The general concensus was that Africans had or have advanced civilizations that either were destroyed by evil White people,or were hiding from evil White people. I pointed out that advanced civilizations tended to have advanced weapons and effective militaries. If my group was armed with flying pyramids and death rays,we damn sure wouldn’t be in hiding.

    I too, once thought not counting absentee ballots was an underhanded policy. Since then I learned that absentee ballots are not counted only if the election results are so widely in favor of one candidate that even if all absentees voted for the losing contender there still wouldn’t be enough to alter the outcome.

    If candidate “A” is ahead by one thousand votes and there are six-hundred absentee votes received, why count them? Even if all absentee voters voted for candidate “B” (which is unlikely) the results will not be altered.

    What is more worrying to me is the blatant fraud of “finding” a box (or several) of uncounted ballots in a broom closet. These “found” ballots usually change the outcome. After all, why bother to “find” ballots if your candidate already has won the election outright.

    That was how Franken was elected as a Senator from Minnesota. It was closely in favor of the Republican candidate till “found uncounted votes” saved the day for the Dims.

    Explain to her that there are numerous gun control laws. Inform her that legally bought and registered guns aren’t used in crime. Tell her that enforcing existing gun control laws regulations and county & city ordinances would have a disparate impact on blacks and send even more to prison.
