Seano.org is a conservative blog, founded by Sean O’Reilly. We welcome your thoughts and comments; and are always looking for new writers to represent their states from a political view!
Just found your site. Facing the realities you write about is hard, but I’m working on it. Where did you get the figures for the 2011 Assault Rifle deaths slide show? I would like to share it, but I need to understand the stats and sources. Thanks!
Let’s have some posters.
Appreciate you work!!! We need some of your great posters/bumper stickers so we can get them out!! Can you put these into jpegs and make them available?
I just love how you think we should be more like Iran and N. Korea and being liberial is wrong, but you clam to stand for freedom.
@ Nicholas Larkin, Just what do you “clam to stand for”? Clamming is a noble occupation. Without them, no clam chowder. No Clamato. But, I’ll have to break it to you since you’re a stupid liberal, Oyster Crackers DO NOT have oysters or clams in them and they do not contain poor white southern people…
Wow, I am fairly conservative but even I would not slam with name calling, bashing. This proved no point other than you have a serious intolerance which does nothing to help educate people.
Yes Rach, I sure you are fairly conservative, like say, Chris Matthews…
Let Me Get This Straight article.
Good but you missed one. What happens if an American overstays his visit to Mexico?
Can an American go there and get what the Mexicans want if they come here?
This would make a better comparison than N.Korea.
I recently saw an image on facebook with information attributed to seano.org. It states in part: “If you cross the US Border illegally, you get a job, a driver’s license, a place to live, health care, child benefits, education and tax free business income for 7 years. No wonder we are a country in debt!!” Would you please tell me your source about the 7 years of tax free business income? I’m also interested in getting some figures on how much these listed services to illegals cost the American taxpayer and what % of the debt it makes up, if you have those sources as well. Thanks for your help!
I also saw that image on Facebook and I am interested on the legitimacy of the claims. I am tired of people sharing information on Facebook without listing sources, not backed by factual information and I have started to task myself with either proving or disproving many claims people try to dumb down the rest of Facebook with. My reply to these outlandish claims is always two words: Prove it.
Here’s just one example Mike, or should I just call you shit head. http://www.hrw.org/world-report/2013/country-chapters/north-korea?page=1 If you’d stay off sites like stfuhatemongers and lived in reality you would know these things… Just sayin’.
I am with you Mike, there is so much misinformation for people that really do care about stats. But then there are people like this person that felt that calling you a shithead would make even the slightest difference. At least you got the link…to bad you got the abusive name calling…
Mike was tired of people posting items without listing the factual information. It is not that hard to do research in this modern computer age. What he was really saying is that he has been dumbed down because he cannot do the research himself. Hence a shithead.
I was in a gun shop today and I saw your poster, this many people killed with rifles, this many people killed bu knives and so on, will you >> please << email me a copy ot that poster ?
email it to me at email@example.com
I to would like to purchase the poster. Where? firstname.lastname@example.org
Statistics are a wonderful lie. Most people killed by a weapon would not have been killed if there was not ready access to a lethal weapon at the moment of passion. Many times rifles are not available at that moment. Those planing the death of a bunch of folks will choose the most efficient weapon for mass killing. Hammers, knives–even pistols are not as effective for such purposes as rifles. That is why one weapon of choice of militaries, terrorists etc is a semi-automatic rifle with a high capacity clip. The fact that circumstances call for less efficient weapons does not argue against regulation of the more impressive killing tools. The logic of this article would open the door for Stinger missiles and land mines, (low statistics on murder with these weapons). I notice that the author leaves out the 6,220 killing of people with the more easily carried pistols. There is no constitutional right–even freedom of speech–that isn’t subject to regulation. The writer of this is less than candid with his statistics and isn’t addressing the real issue which is how do we fairly regulate weapons. By the way, Obama has addressed remedy for unreasonable increase in medical costs–not caused it. The statistics quoted have no correlation to effects of Obama Care.
Get rid of your garden hose, it will eventually rain. Get rid of your fire extinguisher, we have fire fighters. get rid of your first aid kit and band-aids, there are hospitals for stuff like that. And most of all, drink the “grape Kool-Aid” when they pass it to you…
Nice advocating suicide. You are a piece of work I am floored. Maybe you should go to North Korea and hang with Kim. You seem to share the same mentality.
Rach, I can smell the patchouli you wear to cover up your B.O. and pot smoke residue from here. If you weren’t so stoned, you would realize the sarcasm used to make fun of Blake Bailey’s lack facts to back up his argument, and his blatant stupidity about ” That is why one weapon of choice of militaries, terrorists etc is a semi-automatic rifle with a high capacity clip”. He shows his COMPLETE IGNORANCE about the subject. Militaries and terrorists prefer selective fire rifles. No rifle has used a “clip” since WWII. Both of you need to grow up, move out of your parent’s houses, get jobs, live in the real world instead of just believing what your friends/professors tell you. Oh, and stop smoking pot…
I recently received an email with statistics attributed to seano.org. The statistics cited the number of 2011 deaths from various causes: 323 by guns, 496 by hammers, 650 by knives, etc. Where did you get the gun statistics? Please let me know the source as everything I see in my research points to much higher gun deaths in the US during the same period. Thanks much.
It wasn’t 323 by guns, it was 323 by assault weapons.
Ok, correction noted. Where does the statistic come from?
High. Thanks for the info. However, the FBI websites are huge and I could only find statistics that point to more gun murders than any other kind (http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-7). Could you give me the specific page?
Per the FBI, it’s 323 by rifles of all kinds, only a fraction of which were so-called assault weapons.
Seano totally made up the stats. They are not on the site he quoted. He is a bukkshit artist who will make up stuff to back up his wacko ideas. Pay no attention to this liar.
Jerry, you are obviously a stupid liberal, I found it on the FBI’s web sight without too much trouble. If you weren’t such a moron you’d be able to find it also.
Look at the expanded table #11, retard, then write back about how the FBI skews the stats.
If it doesn’t take you to expanded table #11, just take your mouse and move the pointer on the computer screen and left click the mouse on expanded table #11. Douchebag…
Sorry, that Douchebag was aimed at Jerry. (Must actually be one of Jerry’s kids)
I like to think that I stay informed but I admit that I missed this bit of information about the current gun control debate. Did YOU know that according to an NBC report the gunman in the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting did NOT use an AR-15 “assault rifle”? Apparantly he only used handguns in his assault on the innocent children at the school. Why isn’t that fact more prominent in the national media or have I just been under a rock for the last month? See the video broadcast with the link below:
recently on your facebook page you posted an article “More Modern Way of Living” Beaufort NC Jan. 17, 2013 To the Editor. can you cite the source please? Publication, Date and Page.
Why is there not a full investigation on the sandy hooks shooting. to many people seen the live coverage, who were the two men in the woods and where did they go. what is a.g. holders punishment for gun running? those guns were used to kill american border patrol, and small shops. why is the american people raising a fuss and get the truth out if there is any in d.c.
Hey! The photo about the number of deaths in 2011, I could really use the source of the numbers for my grad paper. Where did you get them? Thank you so much!
Amongst others: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/11856.php
Regarding the 2011 Deaths Poster:
Unfortunately, the poster has several problems.
1. In 2000, Obama was a lawyer in Chicago and an Illinois state senator.
2. Obamacare doesn’t go into effect until 2014.
3. The figure 195,000 is an average of 2000-2002, not 2011. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/11856.php
4. The figure is based on data from only Medicare patients.
5. The 195,000 figure is twice as high an estimate as any other research during the same period.
6. The study for the 195,000 never mentions Medical Malpractice.
7. Medical Malpractice is a crime. The study analyzed medical errors and procedural problems.
8. The number of medical errors has greatly decreased since Obama took office.
9. In 2010, 2,468,435 people died in the US.
10. Assault rifles have one use, to kill people.
11. The death figures for rifles, hammers and knives are for murder.
12. The death figure 12,000 by Drunk Drivers is the number of people killed in alcohol related automobiles accidents not for vehicular homicide while drunk.
13. Also, the 12,000 figure is wrong.
14. The average deaths per year during the Bush years was over 13,000.
15. Obama’s first year in office the number was 10,759 and last year dropped under 10,000.
According to the FBI, there were 6,220 people killed by handguns in 2011 the US – a statistic not mentioned on this chart; sure, you’re not talking about handguns – but it presents a distorted picture leaving that number out.
According to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving – an organization that will probably have their facts straight) says that there were 9,878 drunk driving deaths in 2011, not 12,000.
The American Association for Justice puts Medical Malpractice deaths every year at approximately 98,000.
Stabbing deaths? Stats I find are more like 17-18,000 per year; I can’t find any specific stats on murder by hammers…
The problem with simplistic, inaccurate and ‘accusatory’ memes as promoted by this kind of ‘poster’ is that it serves only to polarize – it does not promote discussion, it doesn’t solve anything. We are the most armed nation on earth, by most counts that I’ve seen – why? I hear of otherwise intelligent people purchasing semi-automatic weapons to ‘protect’ themselves – from what? Has al Qaeda been seen in your suburban neighborhood?
I’m a gun owner – I hunt, and I have several pieces than have no purpose except sentimentality (inherited, with stories attached). I see no purpose whatsoever to 30-round clips in civilian use, and plastic bits on my rifle to make it look like ‘combat’ arms; the deer really don’t notice, and if I can’t get the deer with one or two rounds, I shouldn’t be hunting.
As to ‘Federal funding’ to put guards in schools – well, estimates of the bill for that runs into the billions – and the assault on Sandy Hook started with the perp breaking a window to gain entry (he didn’t come in the front door).
In all, I find myself in agreement with Senator Manchin of WV (a gun owner, a hunter, and a lifetime NRA member) – we need to sit down, and have an honest, rational discussion about guns and what we want to be as a people. Taking extremes does not solve the problem.
While your facts represent a difference from the poster mentioned, the numbers you provide still make the point that death by “assault weapon” (which by the way is ANY device used to attack someone) is far less each year than other forms of death, intentional or accidental.
While I appreciate your self-proclaimed status as a 2 or 3 shot awesome deer hunter, there is no mention in the 2nd Ammendment that the right to bear arms (that means own guns) is for hunting. The intent of the framers of the Constitution when they chose the wording of the Bill of Rights was to prevent any form of our U.S. government from becoming more powerful than the people it serves. Any cursory search or investigation of the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers will provide some much needed perspective regarding our right to own guns that we decide we want, within the law. My right to choose my weapon for my reasons are protected by the same Constitution that gives you the right to disagree and then say it out loud.
I think that my biggest problem with the current push for gun restrictions is the hypocracy that accompany’s the argument from the left. The nObama administration wants to send Egypt (muslim brotherhood that just adopted sha ria law) F-16 fighter jets while asking U.S. citizens to give up our rights under the Second Ammendment.
In conclusion, the most recent debate about gun restrictions stem from the horrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary…..why is there so much talk about “assault rifles” when the killer never even made it into the school with anything other than hand guns? Such blatent disregard for the truth when there is an agend to be had. See the NBC news report about it at this link: http://video.today.msnbc.msn.com/today/50208495#50208495
Well you are discussing it are you not? and plenty of people use “assault weapons” to hunt, with ten round mags of course. My old winchester model 70 holds 7 rounds. does 3 rounds really make a difference? No state allows hunting with a 30 round mag. And why should the police and military outgun the public? There is only one reason; military superiority: the goons hate that the armed citizens have military superiority; Based on the illogical premise that the citizenry should not have guns because of the crimes committed with them, they should guns also be prohibited based on military and police misuse? The name Christopher Dorner comes to mind!
@John – think you’re missing the point, like most of our liberal friends..
1. Chicago has a high rate of gun murders with some of the most strict gun laws in the United States. If Obama is so great, why didn’t he come up with a great solution in his “hometown”?
2. Most medical practices are already implementing Obamacare NOW so that they are ready when it does into effect next year.
3.The number is still higher than assault rifle murders, and that’s coming from people that are supposed to be practicing medicine to make your health better, not kill you.
4. Did you check to see how many private pay, private insurance, and Medicaid patients died as a result of malpractice then? give us those numbers.
5. lets say that number is twice is high – lets say it’s only 75,000; isn’t that number “slightly (sarcasm) ” higher than assault rifle murders?
6. how many times does malpractice get “caught” and how many times does it appear to be a “natural” death…any number could be + or -
7. i thought murder was a crime
8. if you haven’t noticed, most medical practices are using electronic medical records, which started BEFORE Obama took office. that’s a major reason that there are fewer cases of malpractice; the old paper charts are a thing of the past
9. and how many were killed by assault rifles again?..please don’t include how many were killed in the act of self defense
10. it’s a gun, and like every other gun i’ve seen, its purpose isn’t only to “kill people”. how many assault rifles haven’t been used in crimes? that’s like saying ALL cars have one use – to be used by drunk drivers to kill people. you’re delusional ..plenty of people own “assault rifles” that have never pointed them at anything other than a paper target…some have never even been fired
11. so you’re saying drunk driving isn’t murder? so if i get drunk and take an assault rifle and kill someone, are they any less dead than if i took a car and smashed it into a family of fours and kill them? never heard anyone use the “i was drunk defense”..if a person gets behind the wheel of a car after they have drank enough that they are legally drunk, if they kill someone, imho that is murder. i’ll give you the fact that malpractice isn’t always murder, but that doesn’t mean that the patient is any less dead
12. again, doesn’t make a person less dead, even if they kill themselves. when these idiots go on a shooting spree, isn’t the perp usually added into the death total?
13. then give us the correct number…isn’t it still more than were killed with assault rifles?
14. oh, so i guess drunk drivers were Bush’s fault…seems like i’ve heard THAT argument before
15. i guess el Presidente was at the bars, reminding people not to drink and drive? the great and powerful Ozbama was really responsible for a decline in drunk driving deaths?…that’s like saying that Bush was responsible for a decline in skydiving deaths during his presidency…
it’s all opinion and of course both sides want to use numbers to their advantage, but again, dead is dead…and less people die from the horrible “assault rifles” than drunk drivers…and stabbings…and hammers (WTF?!?)…and i promise you, healthcare will take a nice hit when Obamacare goes into effect, because sometimes you have to know when to take the pill instead of having the surgery (wonder where i got that quote)
Hi: I sent yu an email asking why no hand gun numbers were included in the statistics posted in 2011 post on the deaths due to assalt rifles, knives, drunks, etc.. We have quite a heated and passionate commentary going on f.b., and need to know. Thanks.
They weren’t trying to ban handguns. The post is about government over-reach!
WE HAVE LOST OUR POWER IN VOTING…..
SECURING AMERICA’S BORDERS NO AMNESTY
It’s important to understand why we must secure our borders. There are many reasons and all of them need to be done but there is one threat that is overlooked the most and it’s the most dangerous one of all. The power in voting. We process 1 million legal immigrates each year becoming new U.S. citizens. They take an oath and become a new Wel-fare Recipient. We have just added 1 million new voters per year for the movement of socialism. But this number is small in comparison to the anchor babies of illegal aliens. They will come of age to vote by 2016 and their vote will offset or cancel the Conservative voters. Yes, I’m talking about We The People, the last of our kind. Here is a 7 minute video on Securing Our Borders. Click on this link Share and Enjoy http://www.americaworking.org/securing-our-borders/

Ture Threats Of Islam
There is no doubt that our President is a dedicated Muslim. To be able to recite the Islamic call to prayer in Arabic, kneeling down in prayer in a Mosque, bowing to a Saudi King, Muslim appointees to our Federal Government, to be a follower and lover of George Soros, and to offer amnesty to law breaking illegal aliens. Did anyone truly think he was a Christian American who loves God and Country? Here is a 9 minute video of Obama’s Muslim Dream. Click on this link.

I think whoever spends time creating this website should put their energies towards more useful things like charity work or working on preventing drunk driving deaths instead of sitting on your ass bashing our government. Talk is cheap – get out there and do something about it.
Your silly comment is a testament to the power of this website. Keep up the great work SEANO.ORG creators. By the way, how do you know that they were sitting on a donkey while bashing? You must have ESP! Cool! Lets see if you can tell me what I am thinking now………?
Hahaha SEANO.ORG is a joke!!
Full of angry people reading and believing everything that is posted. Look this up conservitards:
Simple Google search for basic facts, not a verbal and written diarrhea spew of what you think is true…got this link through a person I know, who sent it to all the friends he knows…now all his friends are laughing at his lack of research on the topic…and now we all came to this site and can’t stop laughing at all the simple minded folk that actually follow and better BELIEVE any of this.
Stop being angry…he won, at least lose with dignity SEANO and all your angry followers. Go to school, get an education…and if you have one, then act like it! Spend your time looking ways to improve your community rather than tear down an already broken nation.
Trust ABC, Smitty?! And remember, it was simple-minded folk (47%) who put Mr. Obama in office.
“An already broken nation” going broker by the second because of the incompetent ones in the White House and you are surprised we are ANGRY? You are the “funny” guy here ~ try and improve our community when we are charged more taxes than EVER before ~ WHAT planet do YOU live on that you are apparently not affected the way the rest of us are and instead you are singing Kumbaya…all is well when it is NOT! Losers? Not so fast, my friend, the jury is still out on who the real losers are here.
Here, here, Angryna.
And why should I believe a statistical document generated by ABC news of all sources? A typical Libtard post, by someone I assume drinks the kool-aide whenever it’s offered. LOSER!
Funded by the NRA? the KKK? a new billionaire PAC designed to deceive America? the society to further ignornace, hatred and bigotry in America??? What a disgusting pair you two are. TWENTY children were murdered in Newtown. If your child had been one of the children, would you still defend the freedom for all to own guns of war. How much do the big boys pay you to spread their propaganda and lies???
Hey bonehead. I know folks who have loved ones who were killed by guns. They ARE pro gun advocates because they enough of a brain to know it wasn’t the freakin’ guns fault for the death. It was the idiot pulling the trigger. Grow a brain you moron.
Please remember that our first amendment right is freedom of speech which equates to freedom of opinion. That is their opinion and because it does not match yours does not make it wrong. Only a small mind would feel threatened by another’s opinion.
I don’t think his opinion, although disturbing, is the problem. His accusations, speculations and dearth of logical flow, however, are out of place in a serious discussion. A number of a certain age of murdered Americans has no relevance in debating a right which is by law and of necessity, inviolable.
Let’s reason together sir. in 2011 automatic rifles were responsible for just over 300 deaths. I personally don’t own a gun, but I would fight for your right to own one. And fight for your right to buy a bottle of wine knowing as I do, that drunk drivers killed over 12,000 people in 2011. Even fight for your right to have decent health care knowing this county lost nearly 200,000 due to medical malpractice! The common denominator is we the people! Sinful, perverted, emotionally wounded, over-medicated, yada, yada, people! It will remain so until individuals decide to get off the throne of their lives and ask Jesus Christ to sit there instead. I need a Savior; this country needs a Savior. YOU need a Savior.
God doesn’t condone your use of deceit to further your opinions.
He doesn’t condone lying either but Congress does it daily!
This is a site of a Congress Person but this site talks of God then sins against him.
That should say that this is NOT a site of a congress person…
We are all human and therefore all sinners. Please explain to me why nobody is trying to ban alcohol, just based on the fact that kids are being beaten everyday by alcoholic parents. The people they love and trust the most are assaulting them, and nobody cares because they don’t want to give up their good time.
But I guess God lets you speak on His behalf?! You arrogant, pompous ass.
Nice hate page.
Nice hate reply.
I didn’t know people could be as stupid as you.
I think I can safely say I speak for most of the free thinking world.
With love, from Russia? Duh.
Agreed. What a waste of cyber space.
It’s obvious from your post that some people can indeed be more stupid. I assure you that you do not speak for me OR the other 49% of the USA that voted against Obama.
Wow… I didn’t “Dipshit” was now spelled “P-u-n-d-i-t”
Wow… I didn’t know that you made a complete sentence! You’ll most likely learn that next year in 3rd grade.
This kind of stuff makes me nutty. Here is were a lot of the stats come from.
Methinks you were “nutty” long before reading anything here. Duh.
Sounds like lots of you guys who are criticizing and screaming have not actually checked any of the stats. They are absolutely right on!
STILL WONDERING WHERE YOU GOT THOSE FIGURES
I’d also like to know the source for the stats for the mortality poster. Can you send me the links or list?
Have you gotten a reply yet??? I haven’t.
Where did you get the figures for the mortality poster?
notice how they didn’t answer this question?!
You are a terrible person Seano.
Ouch! Sean will probably tell your mommy that you are being a meanie!
Do you think she just killed her chance to run for President?
