LOL. Shouldnt that be about 10,000 Murders and 4000 Justifiables?
LOL. And now the CDC gets to provide their research with funding. Oh dear.
The nerds will be crunching up all sorts of real facts.
Still dodgeing the subject arent you? Come on, your country has freedom of speech, or so it likes others to think, so come on, tell us about how you king got rich off the backs of the poor pheasants, and still, lets not froget those child sex slaves, etc. Still waiting.

Again with this shit !
What with you ?
You are without a doubt the biggest loser on topix by far.
Why do you keep coming here and spamming other threads with rubbish and then sit on this thread like a brooding hen and keep repeating that same stupid statistic you stole from some website.
Is this what you do while you are waiting for your next little rent boy to come to your appartment to please you ?
This is why your hiding in Asia isnt it you pedophile.

You truly are a piece of shit pal.

I hope the Thai police find out you're a pedo soon and throw you in their jails. I guess you will love all the gay sex, but you prefer kids dont you.

Iam still waiting for her/him/it, to comment on that ole king, come on gogobar, you have such negative comments on everyone and everything else on this forum, why hold back?
You aint afraid of speaking out are you? No. Surely not you. Are you afraid that the thai police might come aknocking?
And still, not one comment yet on that child sex slave trade. Yet you down america bc of the recent shootings of kids, yet you say nothing in behalf of the thai children. Why is that? I for one think thai children are just as precious as any other, apparently you dont.
And lets still not forget that corrupt military you have there in thailand.
So at least speak up and tell us why you refuse to discuss those topics. Do you agree with children being sold in thailand for sex slaves? Is your king a theif and crook, corrupt?
How can a mouth like yours all of a sudden go quiet on the subject? Smells fishy to me. Either that, or you need to bathe.

Well people, gogobar has yet to respond to my post, any of them that I posted in the past and tonight on the same subjects. So, if you guys want to shut her up, just hound her about that corrupt military the thai have, hound her about the sex child slave trade, and for gods sake, hound her about that corrupt thai king.
And dont let up, what comes around goes around. Its time she/he/it be shown that western civilization is a thousand times better then her beloved thai system.

Yes, why doesn't the poster respond to this - one would think it more important to confront such issues in the country you live in rather than worry about gun-rights elsewhere. Regardless of what happens in America, the children in Thailand will still be suffering.

You're absolutely correct. And yes, we, the usofa, does need some form of gun control, within limits. We gun holders arent against that at all, but we know, once you give a government the right to take away certain rights, where will it stop? Answer--it wont stop, not until ALL your rights are cut away, little by little, slowly, and quietly. Thats all we gun owners have a problem with.
And that poster we are talking about, well, I think its pretty obvious why she/it/he wont respond, lmao.
How are you doing sairla, I love that name. It almost sounds indian (native american).

Well the way I see it the problem is one for the USA to work out, not for those who live elsewhere to criticise - it may seem strange to us in Australia that people have such ready access to guns but, by reading posts here I can understand how that came about and the rationale behind those who do not want gun bans. Yes, my name does sound 'different', it is Irish, I only use it on Topix and with my family because no one can spell it right :)

Little Levi, things are far worse and better in the Kingdom of Thailand than you can imagine.
Corruption, prostitution, drugs, criminals, low education, poor medical care.
Guns pour over 3 borders along with refugees, drugs(Yaba) and terrorist seperatist insurgencies in the South.
Whereas Australia is #2 when it comes to HDI adjusted for inequality, poor old Thailand is ranked 68th.
It is no wonder that Thailands murder rate is 4.8/100K compared to Australias 1.0/100K. The Thais just have too many guns.

But you really want to know how it compares to the USA.
The US is ranked 23rd for HDI adjusted for inequality, and has a murder rate of 4.8/100K.

Is that too off topic for you?
