No they don't.
The majority of your BS number is suicides.
Others are justifiable homicides by Police in the course of their assigned duties. Are you honestly suggesting to disarm the Police?
Still others were justifiable homicides in self defense by people with the salt to defend them selves instead of curling into a fetal position.
The only number that counts here is the number of murders by guns.
Tried and true liberal tactic: throw something out that really has nothing to do with the point but kinda sorta SEEMS like it does.

You nailed it, I said MURDERS. Pinhead liberal responds with "gun deaths". That's all you need to distract the low information citizen (a. k. a. liberals).

This from a pro-abortion extremist. Abortion kills more unborn children in two weeks in the US then firearms do in a year.

Do NOT be expecting reason from the entirely unreasonable.
They would 'abort themselves,' if they could.

Special Rights????? What would those be? You mean honoring the 2nd Amendment HOW IT IS WRITTEN is special rights??? Please point out the part that calls for "universal background checks" or limits on what type of firearm I can own, or limits on magazine capacity. The only people wanting "special rights" are you f-ing libtards who keep reading shit into the Amendment that IS NOT THERE.
Hmmmmmm.... then you must be for a well regulated militia too!

And ignorant, pathetic POS's like your self think that disarming the general public or limiting access to certain forearms will do something to curb the actions of those 87. It never has and never will.

And you never did specify what those "special rights" were. Why is that, ball-peen???

Not a qualifier in order for "the poeple" to exercise a right. And "well-regulated" does NOT mean "controlled by legislation". At the time of the FF, it meant well-run or well-trained.

Try again.

Until their rights have been due processed away (per the BOR), unfortunately, yes they can. That's why it is our right to stay armed, also. To protect ourselves from those assholes.

If you wish to live in a free country, you have to take the good with the bad, and do your damnedest to remove the bad from society through due process. That's why laws should only be in place to punish bad behavior (speeding, robbery, burglary, murder, etc. etc.). Not to punish or restrict the right of the law-abiding who have done nothing wrong (gun control laws, magazine capacity limits, soft drink size limits, carry permits, etc. etc.)

AH! You mean like doing background checks on ALL gun sales...?
NOOOOOOOOOOOO! the NRA doesn't approve! WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
We want special rights!
Why should I have to have a background cheeck done if I wish to give a firearm to my son or brother, or sell one to my neighbor whom I have known over 15 years? "Universal background checks" is nothing more than a distracting term for "full firearm registration". And as history has proven, registration will only lead to one final outcome.....confiscation. It has never been used to solve or prevent ANY crime. Do you honestly think that all criminals are going to rush down to register their firearms? Are you truly that ignorant and naive???

Canada dropped it's long gun registration because it never did anything and cost ove 100 times more than inticipated.
