HOW TO 'STOP' VIOLENCE WITH GUNS IN CEDAR RAPIDS

10-5-15

Greetings C. R. Gazette Editorial Board, Gazette Circle Column Writers and all—

Sunday’s 10-4-15 C. R. Gazette published 5 guest columns of 3,250 total words, and no numbers, to “STOP GUN VIOLENCE” in Cedar Rapids.   The anti-second amendment rights Gazette editorial board stupidly blames guns, instead of people, for violence with guns.   If the editorial board had any common sense at all it would have asked the writers circle to write columns to ‘STOP VIOLENCE” in Cedar Rapids.    But the board doesn’t, and the writers didn’t, so Iowalive is responding to the resulting Gazette’s anti-gun rights nonsense the best it can.

Since the column writers gave no numbers, the following Iowalive table presents violence with guns % reduction numbers that the columns, as written, would achieve if implemented effectively.  In addition, Iowalive net workers included their column in the table as well as the results expected.  Gazette columns are available in the Gazette, for those wanting to read 3,250 words and no numbers--to show exactly what they are talking about!

5 GAZETTE WRITERS CIRCLE 3,250 WORD COLUMNS LIKELY MEANT WELL BUT WOULD REDUCE CEDAR RAPIDS VIOLENCE WITH GUNS BY ONLY 7% IF IMPLEMENTED.  IOWALIVE'S 78 WORD COLUMN WOULD REDUCE SUCH VIOLENCE BY 80%.  Source:  Iowalive  10-5-15

It must be noted that Iowalive’s solution to violence with guns would work just as well for any kind of violence—and would essentially stop violence!!  And it would cost less than $3,000 to implement in the jail. 

Maricopa County AZ sheriff Joe Arpaio would be most proud.  He and others would love to overhear a waterboarded arrestee telling friends about it, and then telling the friends if they wanted some of that—to come to the police station!!   Gazette editors are herein given a huge news scoop.

The Gazette editorial board needs to decide if they want to stop violence with guns or merely talk about it—and use it as an excuse to confiscate rights and guns from American citizens, which is ridiculous and unconstitutional at face value!!  

Waterboarding, as proposed, is for awareness of consequences for violence committed, not for interrogation or punishment purposes.  It is but a rather unique booking event for those arrested for committing violence with guns.  It is proposed as a step in the booking process.  Victims of acts of violence could tell booking officials of their preferences for waterboarding time durations, for the violence perpetrators!! What would violence perpetrators think about that!!??

 The choice is between acts of violence against innocent people--or temporary, 4 to 8 seconds, of harmless booking discomfort for violence perpetrators.  You decide!!
