A simple game takes a deadly turn!
According to Natural News, as per Breitbart News:
A teen playing the “Knockout Game” in Lansing, Michigan unwittingly targeted a concealed carry permit holder and was shot twice. He survived and is now in jail. WILX in Lansing reports that the teenager, Marvell Weaver, who is black, tried to knock out a father who was waiting at a bus stop on Feb. 26 for his daughter to arrive.
“I saw the van circle twice, and the second time three kids came out. I didn’t suspect anything. I hadn’t any enemies, or any reason to believe they would be looking to do anything to me,” the man – whose identity was protected – told the TV station.
Instead of simply trying to punch the dad, Weaver tried a different variation of the game by trying to use a Taser.
“He shoved something into my side. I wasn’t sure what it was. It had some force to it. I wasn’t sure if it was a knife or a gun,” the victim said.
But the Taser malfunctioned, leaving Weaver little more than a sitting duck. When the Taser didn’t work, the father reached inside his clothing and pulled out a .40 caliber handgun, shooting the teen twice. Weaver has since admitted previously knocking out six or seven people on days before being shot. He admitted that being shot was “a lesson learned.” He’s now serving one year in jail for his attack.
“It was just a lesson learned. I wish I hadn’t played the game at all,” Weaver told the station.

A study called “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” examined figures from “intentional deaths” throughout continental Europe. Researchers juxtaposed those figures with the United States “to show that more gun control does not necessarily lead to lower death rates or violent crime,” Breitbart News’ AWR Hawkins wrote.
He added:Because the findings so clearly demonstrate that more gun laws may in fact increase death rates, the study says that “the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths” is wrong.
For instance, researchers note that numbers for Eastern European gun ownership and corresponding murder rates readily do not show that fewer guns mean less death. In Russia, for one, where the rate of gun ownership is about 4,000 per 100,000 residents, the murder rate was 20.52 per 100,000 in 2002. In Finland during the same year, where gun ownership rates are much higher (39,000 per 100,000), the murder rate was practically nil, at just 1.98 per 100,000.
