In a historic medical article published in Surgical Neurology International, Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Soviet dictator was likely poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's Cult of Personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.

For several decades Europe has had a declining population because Europeans are not having enough children to sustain their culture and their socialistic way of life. The United States of America — the pinnacle of that magnificent Western civilization, a civilization based on the twin pillars of a Judeo-Christian inheritance and the Greco-Roman legacy — is following suit in that same declivity. So a word then in defense of controlled legal immigration from south of the border and certain other countries — like the Philippines, which has had a longtime friendship with the United States — is in order.

As I mentioned in Part 1 of this essay, if it were not for immigration, particularly from Latin America, the U.S. would be a country with just as serious a declining population as Europe and Japan. According to Wikipedia, the U.S. total fertility rate as of the 2010 census is only 1.931. Based on race and ethnicity the total fertility rates for Americans is as follow:

White Americans and white Hispanics:   1.948
Black Americans and Black Hispanics:   1.972
Native Americans and Asians: less than 1.700

With 33,000 gun deaths each year in this country, it’s not surprising that the right of gun ownership often gets called into question. This is especially is done by groups that have little to no understanding of firearms and like to scare people with large, malleable statistics. So let me break it down.

In an article published in Surgical Neurology International, author Miguel A. Faria, Jr., MD states that guns are tools and that “responsibility for crimes rests on the criminals” behind the gun and those who enable them. Pew Research shows that of the 33,000 deaths, 35% are homicides, nearly all caused by the non-law abiding. Less than 5% are accidents; preventing these requires education and training.  

The issue to address in this article is the rest of the 33,000 deaths—suicides, which Pew says make up the other 60% of firearm-related deaths. As a gun rights activist, I often hear arguments for restricting gun ownership due to mental illness—that by doing so we would be able to prevent suicide. However, I do not see that restricting firearms ownership is a realistic means of prevention. Lack of ready access to good...
