Democide: The Word Missing from the Gun Control Debate

Democide is the murder of citizens by their own governments. In the 20th century alone, the Univ. of Hawaii reports 262 million humans were murdered by their own governments. The author breaks down the murders by nation. In most cases, democide happened after citizens were disarmed and had no viable solution to repel the force and weapons used against them.

Search Google News for democide and there are no results.

Will Senators Hatch or Lee discuss democide on the Senate floor? I also called Congressman Curtis’ DC office and requested he discuss democide on the House Floor.

Why Won’t Mormon-Owned Newspaper Allow the Word Democide?

Mormon-owned newspaper will not allow the word democide (“the murder of any person or people by their government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder”).

To prove it for yourself, Google democide

In contrast, Google gun control

I submitted this comment to the article on entitled
In our opinion: In the wake of tragic shootings, does the country ask the tough questions? and they rejected it:

Democide–The murder of citizens by their government. Google “20th century democide” and read the stats by the University of Hawaii. In the 20th-century alone, 262 million humans were murdered by their own government and in most cases, it was after citizens were disarmed by their governments. Now, who wants gun control?

So I submitted this comment and they accepted it:

Why did the Founding Fathers create the Second Amendment to the Constitution and why didn’t it support gun control? Or was the Second Amendment designed to help us protect ourselves against home invaders or shoot animals for food?

The Founding Fathers had just fought a war on their own soil against the most powerful army on the earth. They also studied history and knew that without arms, citizens were powerless against foreign invaders as well as their own governments should they turn against their people.

Governments in the 20th-century alone, according to the University of Hawaii (Google 20th-century democide), murdered 262 million of their own citizens– the People’s Republic of China, 76 million; U.S.S.R, 61 million; Colonialism,50 million; Germany almost 21 million; China (MT), 10 million; Cambodia, 2 million; the list goes on. See 20TH CENTURY

The Second Amendment was established to keep governments from turning on their own people.

Another historic case for the 2nd Amendment where people are murdered after they are asked to disarm:

The militiamen, who included prominent pioneers and church officers, guaranteed the migrants safe passage if they laid down their arms and followed them north.

The migrants agreed, only to be lured to their deaths. On a predetermined signal, the militiamen shot the men and boys in the head at one location and bludgeoned the women and children at another.

Only 17 children, those under age 6, were spared. The dead were left where they fell or received cursory burials.

Four Ways to Make America Great Again

by Robert John Stevens, November 18, 2016

Submitted to President-Elect Donald Trump:

  1. End the 2nd-Amendment debate by teaching Americans the word democide which is “the murder of any person or people by their government.” The University of Hawaii reports 262 million humans were murdered by their own governments in the 20th century alone. In most cases it was after they were disarmed. Google “University of Hawaii democide” or see

  2. 75% of startups fail and 90% of products fail. That means an engineering graduate can work 30 out of 40 years on a failed startup or 36 out of 40 years on failed products. The cost of failure to our economy is innumerable. Most new jobs over the past thirty years are from startups. We determined the #1 reason they don’t succeed is because they didn’t correctly validate. Validation isn’t guessing. It must be done systematically using proven, reproducible metrics. See the release of our first metric at — with your help we can make metrics for every aspect of startup development, showcase examples in a variety of categories, and introduce them to our citizens.

  3. Americans cannot begin to read and understand the regulations at the federal, state, county, city and IRS levels—barriers that crush their ability to make progress. Pre-1913 there were almost no regulations in the United States and yet our people manufactured half the world’s goods. A manufacturing nation is a happy nation. Regulations were promoted by the Federal Reserve gangsters and their cohorts because the Fed’s business model was to monetize debt and the fastest way to create debt is by endless regulations and wars of aggression.

    The solution? Replace most regulations with correct principles and the re-emergence of inalienable rights. Many are ingrained into the human soul. Others can be taught by you. I want to help you list and present these to the American people. Many of the principles behind our constitution are explained in the book, “The Five Thousand Year Leap” by Cleon Skousen. Former Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson taught many too in his unique way. All laws and regulations must be checked against correct principles that govern our nation.

  4. Whether or not you believe in Satan, conspiring men are anxiously awaiting for you to order the murder of innocent citizens and to deny them their rights and their day in court. Once a murderer, as Obama became, your ability to make correct decisions will diminish and you will never be satisfied with just one kill. If heaven exists, your family will want to enjoy your company there. The proper role of the chief executive is not to be a serial murderer.

    Our countries greatest export is a government based upon correct, eternal principles, including inalienable rights, a system of government that defends them, liberty and private property rights–where all, even the president, must obey the rule of law. Please decide to not yield to the pressures to kill. I strongly believe God only justifies defensive wars and will reward nations who protect his children with prosperity.

2nd Amendment Movie

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.

Thomas Jefferson is not the author of the quote—he quoted it from an Italian source:
