Now they are called terror weapons huh, whatever you say.
Statistics show that more people are killed with hammers and clubs every year than with rifles as a whole. I imagine that being beat to death with a hammer wouldn't be terror, get real. People commit acts of terror every day and more often with assault weapons that don't have bullets.
FOAD, gunner troll. Kill yourself with a hammer, if anything can penetrate your reinforced-cement head.

Goddamn dumbass rightie gunner morons, arguing about hammers. I mean, it literally does NOT GET MORE STUPID than you guys.

People who own automobiles are 100% more likely to have a traffic accident than those who don't.

There is an estimated 80 million gun owners in America so its obvious that any domestic violence in those homes might result in a gun being used. Accidental shootings are just that, accidents and is a good argument for proper training in handling a gun, its not a reason to ban them. Domestic violence in homes where no guns are kept are why more people are killed with hammers and clubs every year than with rifles.

Now we are told that one of the reasons we need to ban guns is because so many people commit suicide with them. Which would be better, a suicide by gun or a suicide by jumping off a building or bridge?

Now Joe Biden says to take that shotgun and shoot through the door, what an idiot. No responsible gun owner would do that.

I see that statistics and facts upset you and bring your blood to a boil. You need to seek help, you are a menace to society. You speak as if to an audience, have you had bi-polar/split personalities issues all your life? Do you still have make believe friends? Do you still hear voices? They have meds for all that now.

Your logic would look better in a funhouse mirror.
Yes, automobiles cause injury and death, but unlike firing a gun, that is not their intended purpose.
The point is that having a gun in the house for self-defense is far more dangerous than not having one. Chances of your home being invaded are very low, and if you point a gun at the intruder, the odds are not on your side.

You said 43%. There was no back up.

Fact: A gun in the home make homicide 2.7 times more likely.

Well Duh........

How about we try something novel, like the government only do what the constitution says it can do.

To ban guns, because criminals use them, is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow... For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding.

You're a gunner propagandist. You have nothing intellgent to say, and can ONLY post in support of guns, guns, and MORE guns. No matter who dies.
GFY
.......Doyathink the $45,000.00 check he along with each victims family has received so far might not grease the wheels of "voluntarism?" I don't think there will be any more publicity regarding disbersment of funds or gifts since the politicians want this to look like a tragedy with no end. We still haven't been told the truth about motive or if Adam was even in therapy, much less on drugs. Instead of being against guns, why not be for community involvment, in a positive way, for those that are alone or thought to have a mental illness. No, I don't mean lock every person up that the gov't thinks is sick, I think some kind of community program should be created. A gun is an inanimate object until picked up and loaded. Then it is still inanimate. It can't do anything until a human being pulls the trigger. Then that human is being either murderous or protective. More times protective than we will ever hear about. The same rules you want to apply to gun ownership would take all the cars off the road if you based these thoughts on cars. How much vehicular manslaughter and massacre by drunk driving must we bear before these four to eighteen wheeled vehicles of death are outlawed?
