Footage from the shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night appearing to show gunfire coming from the 4th floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino
The Second Amendment is constantly under attack by gun control advocates. They will stop at nothing to take away an individual’s right to self-defense.
The following info-graphic debunks five talking points used by anti-gun groups. We aim to share this message with as many people as possible to bring common sense reality back to America.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
While it’s under constant debate whether having a passel of pistol-packing people is a help or hindrance to the security of our free State in 2015, there’s still a desire to make sure we’re protected should any need arise.
So, where do we stand in the “right to bear arms” discussion? Well, truth be told, we here at the Movoto Real Estate Blog would rather play with numbers and offer everyone an interesting perspective of the issue.
That said, what, we asked, would it look like if we compared gun ownership in our 50 states with gun ownership in other countries? You can see our answer above, and read about how we arrived at it below.
Methodology: What Triggered Our Conclusions
We started with a research group in Switzerland called Small Arms Survey and its report “Small Arms Survey 2007: Guns and the City.” Among other things, it estimated gun-ownership numbers for 178 countries, including the United States (which it estimates has about 270 million guns).
We then took the estimate of 88.8 guns per 100 people for the U.S.—which, seven years later, is likely higher—and used it to calculate each state’s estimated gun ownership, based on state populations from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 survey. (Of course, gun-ownership density varies throughout the country, but this number gave us a easy way to come up with comparable figures for all 50 states, since actual state-to-state numbers were not available.)
Once we had the list of state numbers, we compared each one to Small Arms Survey’s list of countries and respective gun-ownership estimates, logging the nearest match.
Under The Gun: A Quick Peek At The Results
As you’d expect, the United States’ “superpowers” match up with some of the world’s superpowers:
- California’s total of 33.08 million guns is closest to China’s 40 million
- Texas’ total of 22.33 million guns is closest to Germany’s 25 million
- New York’s total of 17.2 million guns is closest to Pakistan’s 18 million
Interestingly enough, the next biggest state, Florida, is closest to Mexico (16.7 million vs. 15.5 million). Given their proximity, let’s hope they don’t meet in a shootout, because it probably won’t end like a proverbial Mexican Standoff.
The number of different countries on our comparison map is 32. (That number could have ended up higher, but we didn’t list multiple countries in the event of they were tied on the Small Arms Survey list.)
The countries with the most appearances on the list:
- South Africa: 6
- Spain: 5
- Uzbekistan: 3
- Turkey: 3
A CIA secret weapon used for assassination shoots a small poison dart to cause a heart attack, as explained in Congressional testimony in the short video below. The dart from this secret CIA weapon can penetrate clothing and leave nothing but a tiny red dot on the skin. On penetration of the deadly dart, the individual targeted for assassination may feel as if bitten by a mosquito, or they may not feel anything at all. The poisonous dart completely disintegrates upon entering the target.
The lethal poison then rapidly enters the bloodstream causing a heart attack. Once the damage is done, the poison denatures quickly, so that an autopsy is very unlikely to detect that the heart attack resulted from anything other than natural causes. Sounds like the perfect James Bond weapon, doesn’t it? Yet this is all verifiable in Congressional testimony.
The astonishing information about this secret weapon of the CIA comes from U.S. Senate testimony in 1975 on rogue activities of the CIA. This weapon is only one of many James Bond-like discoveries of the Church Committee hearings, officially known as the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities.
Could this or a similar secret weapon have been used, for instance, in the probable murder of Justice Scalia? This report from the highly respected Liberal newspaper The Washington Post may confirm that conspiracy theorists are onto something in questioning the suspicious death of Justice Scalia.
Yet as details of his sudden death trickled in Sunday, it appeared that the hours afterward were anything but orderly. The man known for his elegant legal opinions and profound intellect was found dead in his room at a hunting resort by a ranch owner.
It then took hours for authorities in remote West Texas to find a justice of the peace, officials said Sunday. When they did, she pronounced Scalia dead of natural causes without seeing the body and decided not to order an autopsy. A second justice of the peace, who was called but couldn’t get to Scalia’s body in time, said she would have ordered an autopsy.

In this riveting exposé, five former CIA agents describe how their initial pride and enthusiasm at serving their nation turned to anguish and remorse, as they realized that they were actually subverting democracy and killing innocent civilians all in the name “national security” and promoting foreign policy agendas.
Watch the video below for the description of a former CIA secretary and Congressional testimony on this secret assassination weapon which caused heart attacks.
The testimony in the video is from 1975, well over 40 years ago. With the ensuing leaps in technological capability, just imagine what kinds of secret weapons for assassination have been developed since. There is good evidence that technology has even been developed to cause suicidal feelings in a person.
The above video shows a dramatic interaction between Senator Frank Church and CIA director William Colby.
The goal of the proceeding, per the Senate’s website:
“To educate the public about the misdeeds of national intelligence agencies, the committee held televised hearings in the Senate Caucus Room. After gaveling to order the first hearing, Chairman Church dramatically displayed a CIA poison dart gun to highlight the committee’s discovery that the CIA directly violated a presidential order by maintaining stocks of shellfish toxin sufficient to kill thousands. Critics saw this as evidence that the committee’s work was a vehicle for Senator’s Church presidential ambitions.”
The Senate hearing came after reports from investigative journalist Seymour Hersh on the CIA’s illicit tactics in both destabilizing foreign governments and conducting intelligence operations against American citizens. Though the hearing ended with a committee decision that Congress should keep better tabs on the intelligence community, many questions remain unanswered. Does the CIA still have this heart attack gun? Have they ever used it? And what other James Bond-esque secret weapons have they been hiding from us?
On the night of February 29, 2012, Breitbart collapsed suddenly while walking in Brentwood. He was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead just after midnight. He was 43 years old. An autopsy by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office showed that he had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, with focal coronary atherosclerosis, and died of heart failure.
Unproven conspiracy theories arose about his death. The toxicology report showed, “No prescription or illicit drugs were detected. The blood alcohol was .04%. No significant trauma was present and foul play was not suspected.
These guns are from the Call of Duty video game. Very accurate!
