If you don't believe in God, He probably isn't talking to you, anyway.

I think it could just as easily be you that is blind, trying to lead those who are not, if they happen to disagree with your atheist beliefs.

It's a two-way street, bud.

Waco here is one of your kinsmen that you may find that is most impressive when nothing is said. As you can see these creatures still walk our streets. Want a gun in those hands. LOL Just another Zionist of some dysfunctional religion. No doubt ownership is paramount in their fallacy world. Very similar to a Taliban don’t you think?
Truth is might; What an avatar. Illuminates the lack of… Consider you’re your false religion and the ominous onus you place on the intelligence of others to try to decipher your marbled rationality. Your just like all the rest of the mentally handicap. We just need to classify which category to put you in without offending that category. LOL defines this god as one that separates his creation to be in opposition to themselves. This god sits on a throne amusing its self by watching the simpleton mortals constantly attacking each other. Weird god that seeks to destroy the creation for simple amusement. Ahh but that’s the “Might Of Truth”..
You must be an uneducated atheist liberal?

I prefer my independence to the dictated life you are emulating, that you exist in. Fear and tremble to go beyond your narrow borders of existence and question the universe for answers unbiased from your previous indoctrinations.
There are not two seperate sides of truth, only one side can be true. If what I say is historically and presently true, what you claim is seperately true, is a lie.

I hear the drizzle of the rain falling on the bordering walls of the shanty shack that you reside in. Once again violence is all you have to resolve your problems you come across. This is what you want the rest of us to except as a “TRUTH”. Feeble, frail of one that exist in some little town that believes in pledging allegiance to the walls. A town where the rain produces rainbows that are black. Its not that the colors aren’t, there its just a lack of imagination. Nothing but the dead of night in your little world of fallacies just continuously recycling. Just keeps on faking it. Such a dubious soul. Not really making it.
You sound stupid. In trying so hard to dance with words, you appear to have 3 left feet.

I am not violent for the most part Barney, but I would find it interesting to find out how a suposedly intelligent commie puke like yourself would deal with a face to face confrontation with a racist barbarian like Truth is might. Fear and tremble, I do not, I stand upright and face my fears. So attempt to baffle us with your bullshit, because you can't dazzel us with brilliance because you have none. Dirty commie puke.
Racist barbarian??

Excuse me, it wasn't my ancestors who were cannibals that sacrificed their own people.

I will even side with a lying Mexican like you, before I give credence to an Atheist liberal like Barney.

Can't blame this on Russians. Those bombers were Checx Muslims who had immigrated to Russia. They were Muslims.

White Russians are still good.

orward this to NY governor Cuomo:

This article basically confirms what we all knew.

More Guns Equal Less Violent Crime
by Professor John R. Lott, Jr.
University of Chicago Law School
1111 East 60th Street, Chicago IL 60637

For the Democratic Party the solution to violent crime is clear - more regulation of guns. What is their net effect? Are more lives lost or saved? Do they deter crime or encourage it? I recently completed a study of one type of gun control law-laws on concealed handguns, also known as "shall-issue" laws. Thirty-one states give their citizens the right to carry concealed handguns if they do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness.The FBI's crime statistics for all 3,054 American counties from 1977 to 1992. Our findings are dramatic. Our most conservative estimates show that by adopting shall-issue laws, states reduced murders by 8.5%, rapes by 5%, aggravated assaults by 7% and robbery by 3%. If those states that did not permit concealed handguns in 1992 had permitted them back then, citizens might have been spared approximately 1,570 murders, 4,177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated assaults and 12,000 robberies.
The benefit of concealed handguns are not limited to just those who carry them or use them in self-defense. The very fact that these weapons are concealed keeps criminals uncertain as to whether a potential victim will be able to defend himself with lethal force. The possibility that anyone might be carrying a gun makes attacking everyone less attractive; unarmed citizens in effect "free-ride" on their pistol packing fellows.
Our study also provided some surprising information. While support for strict gun-control laws usually has been strongest in large cities, where crime rates are highest, that's precisely where right-to-carry laws have produced the largest drops in violent crimes. For example, in counties with populations of more than 200,000 people, concealed handgun laws produced an average drop in murder rates of more than 13%. The half of the counties with the highest rape rates saw that crime drop by more than 7%.
Concealed handguns also appear to help women more than men. Murder rates decline when either sex carries more guns, but the effect is especially pronounced when women are considered separately. An additional woman carrying a concealed handgun reduces the murder rate for women by about three to four times more than an additional armed man reduces the murder rate for men. Allowing a woman to defend herself with a concealed handgun makes a larger difference in her ability to defend herself. Guns are the great equalizer between the weak and the vicious. Our study is the first to provide direct empirical evidence of the Brady Law's effect on crime rates and we found just the opposite result: The law's implementation is associated with more aggravated assaults and rapes. Mrs. Brady's exaggerated estimates of the number of felons denied access to guns are a poor measure of the law's impact on crime rates.
We also collected data on whether owners of concealed handguns are more likely to use them in committing violent crimes. The rarity of these incidents is reflected in Florida's statistics: More than 300,000 concealed- handgun licenses were issued between October 1, 1987 and December 31, 1945, but only five violent crimes involving permitted pistols were committed in this period. And none of these resulted in fatalities. That's of 1% misuse rate for permitted pistols in an eight year period or LESS than 1/1000 of 1% misuse rate per year.

And what about accidental deaths? The number of accidental handgun deaths each year is fewer than 200. Our estimates imply that if the states without "shall issue" laws were to adopt them, the increase in accidental handgun deaths would be at most nine more deaths per year. This is small indeed when compared to the at least 1,570 murders that would be avoided.

Excellent! Not to mention that the course you take aids in the reduction of accidents.
