Remember, our friends at The New York Times have publicly admitted 75 percent of mass shooters in the United States are black. [A Drumbeat of Multiple Shootings, but America Isn’t Listening: Most shootings with four deaths or injuries are invisible outside their communities. And most of the lives they scar are black., New York Times, 5-23-16]
So because black people (and non-whites) commit so much gun violence in America, white people must surrender their 2nd Amendment rights. [America’s epidemic of gun violence is hurting our mental health, DailyUW.com, November 7, 2019]:
The little research that does exist on the effects of gun violence on mental health tends to focus on the mental health effects of mass shootings (usually defined as four or more people dying in a single place) and does not examine the effects of the “daily” gun violence that is common in many larger urban and suburban areas, where people are shot and killed every day by guns.
These events of firearm violence are not reported by the media as often as mass shootings, but they can be equally traumatic and invoke just as much daily fear, if not more, as they are much more common than mass shootings.
People living in areas particularly affected by everyday gun violence, which are usually poor neighborhoods and neighborhoods with a high proportion of people of color, report that they constantly feel on edge from the threat of gun violence. Additionally, they report that because of the constant nature of gun violence in their neighborhoods, there is no time to heal from one tragedy before the next one occurs.
In their article “Gun Violence and the Minority Experience,” Yolanda T. Mitchell and Tiffany L. Bromfield reported that no matter where a shooting was witnessed — whether it be at school, in the community, or at home — people experienced increased risk of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and drug and alcohol abuse.
There is still a great deal to learn about the ways in which America’s gun violence epidemic affects the mental health of Americans, whether they be directly impacted by gun violence on a daily basis or just exposed to the threat of gun violence in the media.
However, from what little research has been done, and from testimonials of those affected by firearm-related violence, it is clear that the impacts of gun violence extend far beyond death and physical injury: Americans’ mental and emotional health are also at stake as a result of this public health crisis and should be considered when evaluating the devastating problem of gun violence in America.
Because non-white people can’t stop shooting one another, our nation’s mental health is in jeopardy. Thus, white people must surrender their 2nd Amendment rights and give up their guns.
This is where the Left is in 2019 when it comes to gun violence and non-whites committing the bulk of the firearm crime in America.
Never, ever forget: gun control is about disarming white America.
