What is your source for those numbers? Since when is political affiliation asked of a person when they're arrested for a shooting?

Clearly made up. Statistics could conceivably be gleaned by using info from voter registration, but then you would not have a 68/32 split that equals 100. Some shooters would be un-registered and some would be registered third party. Statistics do show that more violent gun crimes are comitted in democrat governed districts and more occur in areas with stricter gun control laws (but thats a chicken-egg arguement. Many of those areas developed tight gun control laws as a reaction to existing violence).

Well, I found his source. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/06/robert-farago/firearms-related-homicides-democratic-vs-republican-affiliation/

They say I take wild leaps in my logic. The logic is definitely skewed. TL:DR: since 52% of the murders were committed by blacks and 93% of the black population voted Democrat in 2012. Problem: Writer assumes that 93% is the total of the black population. Ignores that only 13% of the voters were African American while 72% were White. I ran the author's numbers, which assumed that every person in the US voted in 2012. We know from records that isn't true. In 2012, only 13% of the black population voted while 72% of the voters were white. While they are all registered voters, not all registered voters voted. In fact, only 57.5 of all registered voters voted in 2012. Somehow, though, I find it difficult to believe that pathological murderers would bother to register to vote. 87% of the blacks that committed murder did not even vote. Only 29% of Whites that didn't vote committed murders.

Good research. The article was so full of holes I had to throw it out there. It doesn't account for non-voters, independents, green and tea parties etc. Not to belittle your salient points either. I just found it too incredible to believe that there are those who would swallow this without thinking just a little bit.

Thanks, Kenny. I'm a 2nd Amendment advocate, but I can't stand anyone that has to produce lies that "back up" an argument. As my accounting teacher said, "Figures don't lie, but liars can figure". I just had to figure out what "logic" the writer used. Once I realized that, it was easy to find the hole. When the whole truth is eliminated, the logic becomes a lie. You gave me a good mental workout today. I appreciate that. Gotta thank Octavia and BoredMeme for their comments, too. They helped me find the direction I needed to go.

68% OF ALL FIREARM MURDERS IN 2014 WERE COMMITTED BY DEMOCRATS. ONLY 32% OF ALL FIREARMS MURDERS IN 2014 WERE COMMITTED BY REPUBLICANS. IF DEMOCRATS STOPPED SHOOTING PEOPLE, WE COULD REDUCE OUR FIREARM RELATED MURDERS BY ALMOST 70%. GUNS AREN’T THE PROBLEM, DEMOCRATS ARE.
