Just as I said.

You are a very STUPID person.

No wonder you pretend to be a DR.

HAHAHAHAHAAHAH!

PS: The population is increasing but the age is INCREASING.

Just like I said.

Dr-Dumbazz.
How does prison population increase if they are overcrowded?

You calling me stupid is both funny, and evidence that you have nothing of substance to post.

The population of minorities is increasing. So statistically, the population of criminals is increasing. Yet we have a decrease in crime simultaneously with an increase in concealed carry, open carry, and constitutional carry. Imagine that!

Follow the thread.
I've been following the thread. You imply one thing while posting another. You want your cake and eat it too. You use statistics fraudulently in an attempt to make an invalid point. You want to use all gun related death when it includes, murder, suicide, justifiable homicide, accidental shootings, hunting accidents... You want to compare apples to oranges. Mexico has a huge gun murder rate. Instead of committing suicide, they cross the border illegally to come here. You wanted to use Japan as an example of gun control working, yet it is their immigration policies which prevent murders there. Interestingly, look at Japan's suicide rate. Proving that despite complete gun control, those who wish to take their own lives, will find a way to do so even without guns.

You use vehicular deaths when it includes, murder, suicide, justifiable homicide, accidental collisions, and negligence... and want to ignore the same for firearms

I compare deaths.

Vehicle deaths to firearm deaths.

So does the USA.

One thing they both have in common: huge percentage of gun ownership.

PS: If you want to compare apples to oranges, you should try comparing US to another country that is of course so similar to the USA some people think it will become part of the USA.

Canada.

Why don't you want to compare to Canada?

Really? 3.2 per 100,000 in the US compared to your 10 per 100,000 in Mexico.
They may both have a huge percentage of gun ownership. But gun ownership is illegal in Mexico. You know, the place with 3 times our murder rate, that you want us to emulate.

PS: it is you who compares apples to oranges.

Funny how this works, eh son?
No politician is above reproach.

I thought Bush 2.0 should have been impeached and now we have Obama who is giving away money to contributors and runs a White House with no transparency and his inability to get the economy running , a debt level never seen before and his contempt for the rights of individuals with respect to the constitution makes him worse.

Republicans and Democrats are just to different breeds of snake.

Your comments are polarizing.

I guess I am not as gentle as your boyfriends.

Are you going to find anyone that has been dead for two hundred years to give an opinion on this, GayDavy?

Not a single one of your posts- including the one from your hero who wanted a king to rule the US- has hinted that everyone had right to free access to firearms, and most of the people you "quote" would not allow blacks access to any firearm at all.

You should have moved to South Africa when you had a chance, hun.

Japan is 0.02.

And firearm fatality rate is 10.2 in the US.

Five times higher than Canada.

I understand you like things crammed up your azz or you would stop repeating this lie.

Now what country is the USA more like, DrDeflection?

Canada or Mexico?

Or the UK or Mexico?

Again, immigration standards are the reason. You can not simply say country x has complete gun control and that is the reason they have y gun fatalities, when there are other factors involved.
