1. Guns are used in most suicides: According to a 2011 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide was the #10 cause of death in the U.S. with 38,285 deaths reported. Of those suicides, guns were used in 19,766 cases (52%). Restricting access to guns may not impact the suicide rate, but then again it might.
2. Guns are used in most homicides: The same report states that homicide by gun represented 11,101 deaths, 70% of total homicides. The annual homicide total in 2011 was 15,953.
3. Guns take innocent lives: Accidental firearm deaths accounted for 851 funerals. It may seem a small number considering the total deaths for the year exceeded 2.5 million, but if your family member was among them it would have been a tragic loss.
4. Guns are typically used in mass killings: The Washington Post reported that since 1982 there have been 61 mass killings in the U.S. Presumably, these were all gun related. There are no statistics available for which of these mass murders involved assault rifles, but itís safe to say when an assault rifle is used, more people die.
5. Guns only take 5 days to buy: The 1994 Brady Bill instituted a five-day waiting period for the purchase of a handgun and requires a background check on all handgun purchasers.
6. Guns bought at at a gun show can be purchased immediately: The Brady Bill exempts gun show sales from the requirement for a background check or a waiting period, thus completely negating the notion that progress has been made. What was the point?
If we truly want to do something about the killing in this country we must ban the sale of assault rifles, high-capacity magazines, and any weapon that is .50 caliber or higher. Above all we must close the gun show loophole.
There is no reason for a civilian to own a military style assault rifle. These weapons were designed with one purpose in mind, to shoot people. Taking these guns off the market will not prevent a person from protecting his property or hunting game, but it could save many lives. There is no guarantee that removing assault rifles will impact homicides in any way, but if taking them out of the mix saves just one life, given they serve no other purpose than to kill, then itís worth doing.
The gun show loophole can have an immediate positive impact by taking away free access to guns for people who might not pass a background check. That doesnít mean these people canít acquire a gun by some other means, but thereís no good reason for us to make it easy for them; and thereís no evidence that the inconvenience to the rest of us is any more than just that.
Point 2, how many homicdes were commited by felons?

How many of those homicides would be prevented by a ban on any/all kind of guns?

If a gun ban is enacted how many criminals would give up their guns?

It's against the law TODAY for felons to possess firearms, how many obey that law?

Slewer check my spelling will ya, you are good..

Accidental deaths are associated with many items in the USA, firearms are associated with fewer accidental deaths than bath tubs, fireworks, lightning, falls, construction deaths, bikeing deaths, windmill accidents on a percapita basis etc...

Point 4, more people have died in mass killings by fire, poisen and explosives than by gunfire.

Jim Jones alone killed 900+, more than ALL gun mass murders, POISEN.

WACO killed 80 total with 40 being children, FIRE.

The Oka Murrah building 168 total, 19 kids 680 injured, EXPLOSIVES.

Mass killings are the worst when explosives, fire and poisen is used.

Point 5, so what if it takes 5 days to buy a handgun. I can buy a longgun in 1/2 hour. The important factor in gun sales is the buyer isn't a felon, or dangerous to anyone. If a person can be backgrounded in a min fine sell him/her a gun.

Point 6, Slewer needs to stick to an area he knows. In Minnesota, this forum is about Minnesota ya know, if you go to a gun show to buy a gun the SAME STANDARDS apply to the purchase as a purchase from any other place. Background for all guns and for handguns and black guns a special approval from Sheriff or Chief.

The ONLY way to protect schoolkids is to do just that, protect them just like President Obama's kids are protected with armed guards.

Harden school entrances and add guards as needed.

Dial 911 and pray don't work.

Anything short of onsite protection is doomed to fail.

As far as banning black guns because they are designed to kill, you could use the same argument to ban Hummers. They are designed for combat so why allow domestic sales? Why allow sales of any Military equipment it's all designed for war.

While you are at it ban all cars etc from going faster than 70 MPH. It's against the law just do it. And ban mountian climbing, it's dangerous as he11. Ice fishing, ban it, how many drown every year.

Go right down the list of dangerous items and activities BAN THEM ALL!!!

We don't need no FREEDOM to choose besides we are all to stupid to make decisions.

How can it be missed, when he has no response he reverts to spewing Slewer talk, garbage.

It'd be nicer if he stuck to Seattle stuff. He has no knowledge of Minnesota law etc.

Maybe if they stop writing speeding tickets and seat belt violations and actually enter the inner ghettos instead of finding parking violations in the suburbs that will help?

Why do you always call everyone else names? Why can't you ever discuss the issue? Are you so dumb that you can not discuss the topic?
