<quoted text>It depends on how it is worded. "as many as," _______ related" and "up to" are typical agenda driven phrases used to justify a cause. For example, "up to 400,000 people die per year from tobacco related heart disease" does not give an exact number and many things cause heart disease it becomes "tobacco related" because a person does or has smoked.. 10 people dying that year falls into being truthful in that statement.
When you take the 32,000 number subtract the suicides (Japan has a gun ban yet the a much higher suicide rate), thug on thug shootings (cleansing the gene pool), police action shootings, self defense shootings, etc. the number doesn't sound quite as devastating. If you use the numbers for the guns Feinstein & Co want to ban the number is even lower.
If you choose to play the "if it just saves one" card that goes both ways. If a person using a firearm saves just one life...
Live by the gun, die by the gun. Literally, every day, a gun owner shoots themselves, or their child gets the gun and shoots themselves. Every day. Not in any other country. Just ours.

Notice how all these gunman always kill themselves or someone they love in addition to strangers? Just wait. It will happen more and more and more and by the time you come around to thinking about this topic intellectually instead of emotionally, it will be too late.

Good luck with that.

It must be embarrassing for you conservaturds to have to claim that idiot, Bush. Hell, even the RNC uninvited him and his side kick, Dick, from their convention this year. Never happened before in RNC history. QUite telling.

Sorry, please continue with your racism and bigotry. I know if you aren't talking about President Obama's blackness, you aren't talking at all....LOSER!!!!!!!!!

<quoted text>No, millions of Americans don't die every year from alcohol. Do you think you can just throw out numbers that mean absolutely nothing?
The number #1 drug that's killing Americans today is RX drugs.
Not alcohol.
There are 32,000 deaths every year by gun.
18,000 of those are suicides.
If this doesn't concern you, and obviously it doesn't, than it is you with the problem. Gun violence will only get worse and it's only a matter of time before it effects you personally. My brother in law was killed by a drunk guy outside a bar while he was filling up his motorcycle with gas. He walked up, asked a question, didn't like what he said, so he shot him. He was an ex-con, too. My daughter had a friend in HS that accidentally killed himself while cleaning his gun. He came from a family of hunters, btw.
Thanks to the NRA telling us "more guns will make us all safer", the opposite reality is now true. You are far less safe in America today than when there were less guns on the streets.
We are the most violent country on the planet and that includes Iraq and Afghanistan who are actually at war. How sad is that?
Land of the Home and the free? Hardly. Can't go to the mall or the movies in America without getting gunned down anymore.
Wrong again..........LOL

Millions die every year from alcohol..........
Drinking and driving kills more than 25k alone in the USA

5% of all deaths from diseases of the circulatory system are attributed to alcohol.
15% of all deaths from diseases of the respiratory system are attributed to alcohol.
30% of all deaths from accidents caused by fire and flames are attributed to alcohol.
30% of all accidental drownings are attributed to alcohol.
30% of all suicides are attributed to alcohol.
40% of all deaths due to accidental falls are attributed to alcohol.
45% of all deaths in automobile accidents are attributed to alcohol.
60% of all homicides are attributed to alcohol.

Alcohol causes 20k cancer deaths per year..........
http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/02/19/16...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which published the study, estimated that 34,833 people in 2001 died from cirrhosis of the liver, cancer and other diseases linked to drinking too much beer, wine and spirits.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/11/alco...

Now your list of 34k deaths from guns also included police shooting thugs.......
18k are suicides that will not be stopped with or with out guns......

So guns kill a fraction of what al

Funny that none of you fat, white, bigots had a problem with that idiot vacationing almost 2 1/2 years of his 8 year term and that was even AFTER his slacking allowed us to be attacked on 9/11.
And most of it was spent at his ranch were he also had a office and it did not cost the millions that oslama and biden spend......

biden spent almost a million dollars on one night in London

Talk about ludicrous. It's obvious you view things through white colored glasses and anything NOT white must be robbing you of your tax dollars. Too funny.

Connecticuts Socialist Progressives have won in their bid to turn thousands of law abiding gun owners into felons. If passed all Connecticut residents will have register all their firearms. Register all Magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, and it will be illegal to have large magazine anywhere except at your home or on the target range. They have increased the definition of what constitutes an assualt weapon. Everything they propose is designed to hurt the legal, responsible gun owner and nothing they have done will prevent another Newtown from happening again nor will it cut gun violence in our state as most of it takes place in the cities and is comitted by the gangs and other criminals, who will not abide by these proposed new laws.

It`s a crying shame how our Governor Malloy and Obama have used the families of Newtown to set the stage for eventual gun confiscation a little at a time. This is the Socialist, Cummunist, Marxist, Stalinist, Fascist agenda.

PRECISELY.
Now the question arises: What are >you< going to do about it? Are you going to take it lying down. Or, are you going to fight for your God-given INALIENABLE Rights? Are you going to attempt to motivate your fellow citizens to overturn the perversion? To MAKE your hired 'servants' in government RETURN to obeying, upholding, and defending the state and U.S. Constitutions?
Our forefathers FORCED the English government OUT of their lives. The British empire at that time was the most powerful nation on earth. Yet our forebears WON. Are WE not their progeny? Does their blood still pump through our veins?
"The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing"--Edmund Burke, Irish orator, philosopher, & politician (1729 - 1797)
Thousands of us have been involved since the tragedy of Newtown because less than 24 hours after the Governor and his minyons were screaming for more gun control. As there are Socialist Progressive Liberals in both parties, we must assume that our voices meant nothing to these people. Others followed along for what the figure is political gain. NONE looked at the facts concerning past gun control measures all of which failed to create a more peaceful society.

The only winners will be the criminals as they will stay fully armed murdering eachother and honest citizens.

Connecticut should NO longer be called the Constitution State, as our elected officials have once again showed their disdain for the U.S.Constitution.

Whats this I heard on the news that Gabby Giffords husband is talking about giving away free shotguns to Arizona residents ??
