Not all armed Americans are responsible for your 30,000. Maybe if we took care of the few who were responsible that number would drop. RE; Chicago, LA, and the rest of the GANG VIOLENCE. Regards

You should leave out effective when it comes to gun control and add the word effective to government control.

Of course no source was given.
That number probably includes suicides by firearm. Most gangbangers are such lousy shots they fire a thouand rounds and only hit some 6 year old 3 blocks away.

More hysteria. The Dept. of Justice orchestrated the protests against Zimmerman. Equal justice for all!

Of course, that won't bother you. You're too simple to realize the significance of it.

The only thing that's hysterical around here is this spocko weenie.

Well to be honest I only find it's screeching amusing.

Quite amusing - but hardly hysterical. Keep poking it and see how long it can keep screeching like a gerbil on LSD.

Let's face the real issue. The gun laws in Florida need to be changed.
Minors, like Trayvon Martin, should be allowed to carry pistols loaded with hollow point bullets. Then when they go to the shop for some lollies and get frightened by "creepy assed crackers" they can pull the gun out and diffuse the situation. And if the cracker goes for his gun then the kid canm shoot him and still make it safely home to his family.

Hey idiot.

Minors, like Trayvon Martin already carry pistols loaded with hollow point bullets.

You see they ignore the gun laws that weenies like you think mean something.

Have no idea if pulling a gun will "diffuse" the situation. I seriously doubt it would defuse one.

You mumbling illiterate.

Tre, and Minors like Trayvon Martin carry in Chicago Illinois too and now the want to send the National Gaurd into Chicago which they might as declare Chicago a War Zone against the Black & Hispanic gangs that have taken over Chicago which are responsible for most of the homicides especially the Blacks.

So the sock puppets agree that Trayvon should have been allowed to have a gun.
The kid was followed by a "Creepy assed Cracker" in a car.
When Tray stopped and pretended to look around, the cracker stopped the car. Several times.
Then when the 17 yo started freaking out, he ran. The cracker got out of the car and pursued him.
Then Trayvon hid in a bush and the cracker started searching for him.
Trayvon stood his ground until discovered and then in fear defended himself with non deadly force.
But ah, the cracker had a gun and killed the kid while the kid was standing his ground.

Now Fat George has to live his life in hiding far away from his dreams of being a hero. Sad stuff.
