(Natural News) America is rightfully outraged over the slaughter of innocent concertgoers in Las Vegas two days ago, and the political Left immediately exploited the tragedy to call for gun control — stripping all citizens of their Second Amendment rights while monopolizing the ownership of guns in the hands of the government.

This is the predictable emotional reaction from historically illiterate people who lack intellect. They believe that concentrating all firearms in the hands of government will somehow save lives. Yet history shows us that governments routinely commit mass murder and genocide against disarmed populations. In just the last century or so, governments have murdered 262 million disarmed people, according to university research (see the list below).

The mass killing of civilians by governments is made possible by gun control. First, totalitarian bureaucrats strip citizens of their right to own firearms, ensuring they are utterly defenseless against government tyranny. Before long, that government declares war on some targeted group of people (such as the Jews, who were disarmed by Hitler’s gun control laws) and initiates a campaign of mass murder.

It’s called “Democide,” and here’s a chart that highlights the democide deaths in the 20th century alone. The numbers in the right column represent thousands of people, so 219,634 actually means 219.6 million people.

262 million people slaughtered by governments that pushed gun control

Hundreds of millions of human beings have been slaughtered at the hands of governments that pursued gun control. As university research shows, over 262 million people have been mass murdered by government since 1900 alone. Nearly every case of mass murder by government has been preceded by gun control (citizen disarmament) This is all explained in my documentary below:


Opioid prescription drugs kill 33,000 Americans a year (and growing)

According to federal statistics, opioid prescription drugs killed 33,091 Americans in 2015 alone. Estimates put those numbers above 36,000 deaths for 2017.

The death toll at the Las Vegas Mandalay massacre was 59 (so far). Though a horrifying tragedy, opioid drugs alone are killing 560 times more people each year than died in the Vegas tragedy.

This means that opioid drugs alone are causing the near-equivalent of two Las Vegas massacres PER DAY in terms of the number killed.

Yet Democrats are hysterically focusing solely on gun control, even though mass shootings are a statistical fraction of the number of needless deaths taking place in America right now. If lawmakers really wanted to save lives, they would legalize cannabis medicine and end the opioid racket currently being run by Big Pharma and the corrupt FDA.

Millions of Americans killed by Big Pharma and the medical industry since January 1, 2000

The gun control debate deliberately ignores the real causes of death across modern society. The website Pharma Death Clock tracks medical-related deaths since January 1, 2000, revealing astonishing numbers of people killed by the medical system in America and around the world:

(As of October 3, 2017)

Killed by chemotherapy: 17.7 million people
Killed by hospital errors: 7.8 million people
Killed by adverse drug reactions: 1.9 million people
Killed by medical error: 1.7 million people
Killed by hospital infections: 1.3 million people
Killed by SSRI antidepressant drugs: 710,000 people
Killed by medical surgeries: 568,000 people

The list goes on and on, detailing all the deaths attributable to the pharmaceutical drug industry, the cancer industry and hospital-related errors and malpractice. Of course, these deaths are unintentional deaths, but their sheer numbers dwarf the number of Americans killed each year by gun-related deaths.

Most gun deaths occur in gun-controlled cities run by Democrats

When you look at shooting deaths from so-called “gun violence,” the vast majority of them occur in gun-controlled cities such as Chicago, where nearly all the gun crime is black-on-black crime (another factoid the media refuses to acknowledge). The lying mainstream media refuses to cover gun deaths in Chicago because it contradicts their gun control narratives. According to the current delusional thinking of the political Left, gun control always works, so Chicago should have no shootings at all.

But reality paints a very different story. As detailed on the activist website, there are so far 497 shooting deaths in Chicago this year, with another 2395 people having been shot and wounded. By comparison, the Las Vegas massacre took the lives of 59 people, with 500+ wounded.

Gun violence in Chicago — a totalitarian gun control city — absolutely dwarfs the number of people killed in the Las Vegas Mandalay massacre, in other words. Yet there isn’t a peep from the fake news media about shooting deaths in Chicago. Could that be because Chicago is run by Democrats whose gun control policies are an absolute disaster?

Chicago proves yet again that gun control doesn’t work. All it really does is strip away the right of self-defense from law-abiding citizens while allowing criminals — who by definition ignore gun control laws — to run roughshod across the city, committing mass murder and mayhem almost at will.

SUMMARY: Gun control is more dangerous than guns, and modern medicine kills more people than all gun deaths combined

So what’s the takeaway from all this? Gun control is more dangerous than guns because it monopolizes firepower in the hands of governments that routinely mass murder millions of people. Remember: Gun control doesn’t mean eliminating all guns. It really means concentrating them in the hands of corrupt governments.

Modern medicine, meanwhile, is even more dangerous than all the gun violence in modern America, killing orders of magnitude more people than all the nationwide gun violence combined.

So if the goal of the Democrats is to really stop needless deaths, they should focus their efforts on reining in Big Pharma and the corrupt FDA. If they want to stop even more needless deaths, they should allow citizens in cities like Chicago and Detroit to arm themselves in self-defense. And finally, if they really want to stop the No. 1 source of mass murder that’s proven again and again throughout history, they should call for the complete disarmament of government. Because no institution in history has proven itself to be more dangerous and deadly to innocent civilians than government itself.
