Too bad I already have.
Would you please repost links that prove your claims? Some of us haven't seen them. If you truly have already proven them it will be simple for you to do. Thanks in advance.

Here you go BONEHEAD:
"With new Prime Minister John Howard in the lead
How many mass killings followed, Davy Sweetie?

Since the Australian gun gnutter killed those 35 people? After a string of other mass killings?

Let's get the facts straight, Davy: gun gnutter with an AR-15 kills 35, the Australians pass stricter gun laws, buy back weapons... no mass killings since.

You do know what decline means, Sweetie?

Review:

**NO** mass homicides in some 16 years and homicides and suicides down- according to your rightwing 'brain' trust.

Here is another view: "Though gun-related deaths did not suddenly end in Australia, gun-related homicides dropped 59 percent between 1995 and 2006, with no corresponding increase in non-firearm-related homicides. Suicides by gun plummeted by 65 percent, and robberies at gunpoint also dropped significantly. Many said there was a close correlation between the sharp declines and the buyback program."

Here's another, showing suicides

You would think someone with no brain would understand this no brainer, Davy: fewer guns = fewer gun deaths.

Funny how I have the facts on my side and when you are directly chanlleged, you run away.

Running away: your only talent.

Since the Australian passed stricter gun control laws and the 'buy back' program, following the massacre with the NRA's weapon of choice, the AR-15 (and a string of other massacres), there has not been another.

Refute it.

(we here the patter of Tray running away...)

Death rate firearms, 2.82 per 100,000 Australians in 1996, with 516 killed that year.

Death rate firearms, after new laws: 1.04 per 100,000 Australians , with 231 died.

A reduction of almost 2/3s.

FACTS.

I understand, sweetie: I kick your azz everywhere you follow me to and you need reinforcements.

I have to say it just reenforces the opinions other have of you as being an idiot who can't think for himself and the second you step out from under your copy and pastes you hang yourself with stupid statements such as tea baggers being on the left, or the 'new new left'.

loo-loo... is more appropriate, hon.

Then you should be able to prove it.

But funny, every time anyone here asks you to prove anything, you insist that they should have to prove something else.

Let's use this as an example:

Here's the fun thing: why is it that no gun "experts" here on this thread have backed you up on it?

(Maybe because they know you are wrong? especially since I have already proved you wrong?)

The troll still can't post the evidence that convinced his gangsta brain that Zim is guilty
After almost a year..........
I expected the post would either be ignored, mud slinging would start or deflecting. Ignore was the right expectation, it seems.

I guess in Barefoot 2626's world, when she posts (or he) she (or he) expects everyone to accept it as an absolute.
