Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

More global warming fraud exposed, Times [1](UK)

A STARTLING report by the United Nations climate watchdog that global warming might wipe out 40% of the Amazon rainforest was based on an unsubstantiated claim by green campaigners who had little scientific expertise.

Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit, seems to thinks our MSM yokels should be embarrassed [2].   Well maybe they should,  but the nice thing about being a yokel is to below embarrassment.

His explanation as to why the FBI considered Abdulmutalib a lone wolf even after being told he was from Yemen, fails to convince

A report which the Klu Klux Klan would lovc, from the Violence Advocacy Policy Center [4](PDF):

Blacks in the United States are disproportionately affected by homicide. For the year 2007, blacks represented 13 percent of the nation’s population, yet accounted for 49 percent of all homicide victims.

As noted at the beginning of this study, the devastation homicide inflicts on
black teens and adults is a national crisis, yet it is all too often ignored outside of affected communities.

For blacks, like all victims of homicide, guns—usually handguns—are far and
away the number one murder tool. Successful efforts to reduce America’s black homicide toll must put a focus on reducing access to firearms.

Hat tip and more, Moe Lane: [5]

As a general rule, it is not a good idea to endorse a position and policy objective on minority handgun ownership that would be enthusiastically endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan.

Homocide is something like ninety percent intraracial.   Which to say that it blacks killing blacks.  Victim disarmament is hardly saving lives.   Bob Owens, Pajamas Media [6]:

The VPC refuses to even touch on the cultural issues that are the most significant variable in the massive discrepancy between the rate of black homicide victims (20.86 per 100,000) and white homicide victims (3.11 per 100,000). The VPC also won’t acknowledge that the vast majority of African-American homicide victims are murdered by young African-American men. Identifying, targeting, and removing the cultural factors that most specifically contribute to this problem would seem to be the most responsible way to decrease the excessive violence rates, but the VPC’s goal clearly isn’t problem resolution

It is not the tool, the handgun, which kills.   It is the person behind the gun.
