That's because the "33,000" number you use is a LIE:
32,000+ dead a year and increasing.

Pure bald-faced LIE:

Disarming Realities: As Gun Sales Soar, Gun Crimes Plummet

A couple of new studies reveal the gun-control hypesters’ worst nightmare…more people are buying firearms, while firearm-related homicides and suicides are steadily diminishing. What crackpots came up with these conclusions? One set of statistics was compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice. The other was reported by the Pew Research Center.

According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent. The majority of those declines in both categories occurred during the first 10 years of that time frame. Firearm homicides declined from 1993 to 1999, rose through 2006, and then declined again through 2011. Non-fatal firearm violence declined from 1993 through 2004, then fluctuated in the mid-to-late 2000s.

And where did the bad people who did the shooting get most of their guns? Were those gun show “loopholes” responsible? Nope....

Fine, I give the credit to God, just as my Lord did:

"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."--Jesus, John 5:30

Much unlike what >your< 'father' tells >you<, eh baby slaughterer?

Great, then you'll have no problem posting a link to it, RIGHT?

Because the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI show drastically DIFFERENT numbers.

Here, see for yourself:

United States Crime Rates 1960 - 2011 in relation to Gun Control Laws/NICS Background checks

Sources: Population Figures; Disaster Center:
http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.h...

NICS Figures; FBI:
http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/nics

(Important note: The number of background checks does not equate to the number of firearms sold. As multiple guns; both Long Guns, and Hand Guns, can be purchased during a NICS background check).

The statistics from the chart were gathered from the Disaster Center referenced above. To which were added the last two columns on the right. Which contain information concerning U.S. gun law enactment periods. As well as crime rate variances, and finally; N.I.C.S.,(National Instant Criminal Background Check), numbers,

As it is plain to see, crime rates started a dramatic rise after the 1968 Gun Control Act. During the years 1981-84 crime rates either leveled out or dropped. From 1985-91 the overall crime rate again rose sharply. During the year 1992 the crime rates again leveled. While in 1993 most crime rates had fallen. Which fails to explain the justification for the Unconstitutional “Brady Bill”.

The 'Gun Control' laws that have been unconstitutionally passed have also had an effect on Firearm sales in the United States. According to National Shooting Sports Foundation,(NSSF), and FBI NICS records. Firearms sales have increased by 54.1% between 2002-2011*. Thus making the claim by John Lott in his book; “More Guns, Less Crime”, a statistical FACT.

'Gun Control laws' also seem to be providing an impetus for increased firearms sales. Which is hardly what the 'gun control' crowd desired, I'm sure. That is of course, unless they are stock holders in firearms related businesses....

A public educated student I see. No comprehension skills.
Try reading my response again. I said that Martin had no injuries with the exception of the bullet wound and a scraped knuckle. You do know about scraped knuckles, don't you?
Actually I benefited from a public and private school education and am quite aware of what terms like "no injuries" means.

When you are injured, you usually have a wound. When you are shot by a police wannabe, the doctors refer to your injury as a "gun shot wound".

Death trumps a broken nose and that's why Mr. Zimmerman is going on trial and he will be found guilty and he will become some big black guys bitch and all will be well in the world.

Enjoy your bliss, zippy. At least you were good for a laugh or two.

Okay public school failure. Let's learn something new today. Let us focus on two words in combination: Could have. Now, what does "could have" mean? Could have means a possibility. Could have does not mean definitely. Could have could also mean: probably, maybe, possibly, likely, perhaps, plausible, imaginable.
CLASS DISMISSED.
You know whats funny?
How bullies and racists like you always try to
demean and degrade others when your argument
is weak and you feel angry for being made to
look stupid.

You said I was a public school failure and now you are saying
the exact same thing to another poster. I guess
you didn't see the recent study that shows a direct
correlation between ignorance and racism but you are
a shining example of their findings.

Bill Clinton, a Rhodes scholar, had a public school education.
Bush, the idiot, had a private school education.
President Obama went to a number of public schools and private.
Michelle Obama also went to public schools and private.
President Johnson went to public schools.
Oprah Winfrey went to public schools.
Hell, Zuckerburg went to public schools.

The difference between them and a bully like you is they don't go around blaming everyone for their mediocrity or degrading others to make themselves feel smarter or more important. They apply themselves, work hard, further their educations and as a result, become successful, wealthy and respected.

You are a moron and all your bullying is doing is proving that point every time you open your pie hole. You created your life.
Stop blaming everyone else for your mediocrity and inane bigotry.
