Faulty Logic Leads To More Gun Control Activism



I am glad that I did not have Professor James Doti for my college economics course.  While his op-ed piece is interesting, ( https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2019-07-23/guns-state-laws-suicide-rates ) his conclusion is faulty.  He bases his finding on suicide deaths in relation to state taxation rates and gun ownership.  He did not specify if it is legal or illegal gun possession.  We will let that fact pass.  I will agree that , approximately 50% of successful suicides occur with firearms.  However, he neglects to include unsuccessful or aborted attempts and the methods used.

Of the 129 suicides that occur daily, 22 are by our Military Veterans, who would have a higher probability of access to, or of gun ownership.  A Harvard study on Lethality of Suicide attempts ( https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/means-matter/means-matter/case-fatality/ ) states that:

"A number of factors are theorized to influence the lethality of a given method. The first is inherent deadliness. For example, car exhaust with a high CO level will be more deadly than car exhaust with a low CO level. The second is ease of use. A method that requires technical knowledge is less accessible than one that does not. The third is accessibility. Given the brief duration of some suicidal crises, a lethal dose of pills in the nightstand poses a greater danger than a prescription that must be hoarded over months to accumulate a lethal dose. Similarly, a gun in the closet poses a greater risk than a very high bridge five miles away, even if both methods have equal lethality if used. The fourth is ability to abort mid-attempt. More people start an attempt and abort it than carry it through; therefore, methods that can be interrupted without harm mid-attempt — such as overdose, cutting, CO poisoning, and hanging/suffocation — offer a window of opportunity for rescue or change of heart that guns and jumps do not. The fifth factor is acceptability to the attempter. Although fire, for example, is universally accessible, it is rarely used in the U.S. for suicide."

Per MentalHealthAmerica.net/suicide,"There is one death by suicide for every 25 attempts" therefore, it stands to reason, that individuals who employ a firearm as mode of attempt are more likely to succeed.  Furthermore, the same site states:  "40% of persons who complete suicide have made a previous attempt.  Nine of out ten people who attempt suicide and survive, do not go on to complete suicide at a later date."

Poisonings/Drug Overdoses are the most preferred method of attempted suicide and have the highest rate of failure or interruption comprising 71% of all attempts.  ( https://www.thetrace.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Pie-Chart-Suicide-Attemps-vs-Fatality-2-e1473271148627.png )  So while 82% attempts by firearm are successful, only 1.5% by poisoning/drugs are successful.  So, if we apply Professor Doti's logic, reducing access to drugs and poisons would be far more advantageous to preventing suicide attempts and aid in mental health treatments/therapies.

I can only personally conclude that Professor Doti's intention of his Op-Ed piece is to further the cause of the Gun Control policy wonks at the expense of our 2nd Amendment rights and freedom loving Americans.

From The Ashes of Notre Dame






Yesterday, April 15, 2019 was an iconic and historic date.  It marked a pivotal point in our American history, but many may have ignored it's importance.

We stand in a historic era and great time of change.  Just ten years earlier, on this date, a new wave broke across America with the birth and rise of TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Parties.  Americans were fed up with rising socialism, expansive and intrusive government and the destruction of our founding principles that was corrupting our Republic.  With this wave came also a call of a return to our Judaeo-Christian beliefs.

After decades of decline from our founding principles and Constitutional foundation, the TEA Party helped pull them back into the public forum.  Now, on the TEA Party's 10th Anniversary, a new resurgence is awakening.  At the same time, extreme liberalism is creating a dangerous counter culture.

This week, also marks our Christian Holy Week culminating in Easter Sunday, the Resurrection of our Christ, Jesus from death for our salvation.

How ironic, and yes, I will say, it with the hand of God, that on this very date, a fire ravaged one of the most iconic symbols of Judaeo-Christian faith, the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, France.

It was the French, who fought at our side in the Revolutionary War.  They gifted us the Statue of Liberty which graces New York Harbor, welcoming visitors and legal immigrants.  It was upon the french shores of Normandy on D-Day that The Allies turned the tide of World War II.

France, whose history is entwined with ours, today, has become the most secular nation in Europe with up to 75% of their citizens who no longer identify with a religion.  Today, the United States of America remains one of the most religious of western nations.

I wonder, if during Holy Week, that God did not send up a wake up call with the fire at Notre Dame?  If in our abandonment of our Faith and embracement of liberalism, were we not sent a message?

During this week, where we contemplate the fall from grace of mankind and it's redemption into eternal salvation, we should take stock of just where we personally and as a nation stand today.

Globally, we have seen the rise of radical Islam and Sharia Law, especially in France, Germany, United Kingdom and domestically here in America.  At the same time, we have witnesses public derision of Christianity and Judaism.  We have seen our political leaders publicly make anti-Semetic statements with no repercussions or public outcry.  We have seen approximately 60 million abortions of pre-born children since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling.  That would equal ten times the number of people murdered in the Holocaust of World War II, or fill the 2019 Super Bowl Stadium 200 times over.  Liberal states have passed legislation legalizing late term abortions.  Criminal aliens are accorded more privilege and government benefits than legal residents and citizens or military veterans.  At times, it seems we are living in a topsy-turvey age.

So, during this Holy Week, are we not sent a message, which is made more poignant with the picture of the French emergency workers as they gazed upon Notre Dame's Altar Cross, amid the burnt rubble, shining with hope and promise of redemption?
