I'll quote you on this one, namely : "90% of all murders by guns are done by known criminals who can not legally have guns." Please back that up with reliable statistics as it is well-known that the majority of victims were either related or known to their assailants. Criminals rarely kill innocent victims, they kill each other (as I've often said, not a bad thing). All the massares at schools, work places in the last few years were not perpretated by criminals - they all of them had no criminal reocrds. But they could easiy get guns though.<quoted text>
Jacques, we have thousands of gun laws. 90% of all murders by guns are done by known criminals who can not legally have guns. The way to stop this madness is lock up all violent criminals.
Oh, there are various federal laws that apply to ALL states. How is an honest citizen to protect themselves? That is were the 2nd Amendment comes in.
In the recent shootings in New York State the gunman got his guns from a straw buyer and she has been arrested and will be prosecuted!
And your responses is, we need more laws. We already have way to many that all they do is disarm law abiding citizens. That is Shitcagoes problem!!!
I digress. Please show me, give me a link where it will be confirmed that 90% of all murders by guns are done by known criminals. How do you come up with such numbers? Why do you do this? You know I'll challenge you on it. Now you're embarrassed.
Last thing? Protect oneself? Well, if the population's not armed, where's the need to protect oneself? The more guns, the more protection you need, no? I harp back to 6 to 20 to one fewer gun murders in Western Europe, Japan (less than 1% gun murders last year),Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, etc.
I asked you to prove that guns were seized in the UK from its citizens. I'm still waitng. Now waiting for that 90%
