Gun Stats For Memphis TN
« on: August 12, 2017, 08:28:11 AM »
Got this from another site. It is the stats for the murder rate, in Memphis, for the first part of this year. Note area where most homicides are. Robberies.

Nashville's murder rate is getting worse also. I suspect most areas are also. Just no respect for peoples things any longer from a sect of society. You got it, they want it, and are willing to take it by force.

Memphis Homicides So Far in 2017

I just went through a detailed report on the homicides reported in my old stomping grounds in Memphis. From January 1, 2017, until August 9, 2017, there were a total of 122 homicides in the city. None of these involved police action, but 2 were ruled justifiable homicides by private citizens.

In these cases, the weapons used were guns in 98 cases; knives in 9 cases; and other or unknown in 12 cases. Arrests were only made in 42 of the cases, a clearance rate of 34%.  Arrests were most common when the motive listed was “domestic” or “argument”. When the motive was “robbery” or “unknown” there was rarely an arrest made. This reflects the difficulty in solving “stranger” murders, in which the victim and the offender are not known to each other. These are most often street robberies and car-jacking incidents.

The break-down of motives listed was as follows:

Unknown-        91 cases  (usually a robbery or attempted robbery)

Argument-       11 cases

Robbery-         10 cases  (in these the motive was evident)

Domestic-         8  cases

Gang related-   1  case.

Thus, “Robbery” and “Unknown” accounted for 83% of the homicides.  This completely debunks the narrative that most murders are domestics or gang related. They are certainly not. Note that only 1 case was determined to be “gang related”. This shows that by far the greatest threat is from a robbery or unknown (usually turns out to be a robbery or attempted robbery in some form).  These are crimes that are committed in public places, such as convenience stores, shopping centers, and office parking lots. Be vigilant, and carry your gear.

"Sage Advice" from Tom Givens, who has had 64 of his students, in Memphis, involved in attempted robberies and all but 2 won their gun battles. The two that lost did not carry on the day of their untimely deaths.

I often wonder why the human animal continues to chart a course for its own destruction.
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

AMEN! . . . . .
Even with the power of what I would call "Free Thought" we are unable to see ourselves.
"We will have a good government as long as those that govern are effected by those laws that they pass. When those that are passing the laws are no longer effected by those laws then they will no longer pass good laws."
