Socialist countries have no interests in war. War brings no superprofis for them, but is anything of value for a socialist system at all! Only peace is acceptable to them and is of everlasting value for the people.

The number of gun fatalities has declined in the past years but the number of people killed by firearms in the United States remains way high. To claim that gun ownership is declining is complete bunk look at the numbers! According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, between 2006 and 2010 47,856 people were murdered in the U.S. by firearms, more than twice as many as were killed by all other means combined.
There are more than 130,000 federally licensed firearms dealers in the United States. Compare that with a 144,000 gas stations nation wide or 37,000 grocery stores – are you getting the picture here? The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world – there are 89 guns for every 100 Americans, compared to 4 in UK and Canada. The murder figures are astounding; the Brits show around 550 murders per year. In 2011 there were 12,664 murders in the US, 8,583 were caused by firearms.
The ATF reports, last year there were 5,459,240 new firearms manufactured in the United States, nearly all (95 percent) for the U.S. market. An additional 3,252,404 firearms were imported to the United States. If you don’t have a criminal record and you have not been adjudicated as mentally incompetent, you can buy guns. In 2010 the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) ran 16,454,951 background checks for firearms purchases, only 0.48 percent) were denied.
I see you compare a country the size of New York with the entire USA...lets go apples with apples...New York has 10000 percent more guns in the hands of civilians than does Great Britian yet the nurder rate is lower...how do you rationalize that, francis? Or do you just continue to marginalize it to suit you?

550 murders in a country with 4 guns per 100, that seems quite high doesn't it? I mean in light of guns killing people and not people killing people...how is this possible?

Pay attention Mr. Brainfart, the number of guns is referenced to units of 100 people which makes the total size of a given country irrelevant

To only find comfort, and safety, in arms is very, very sad indeed. Ronald Reagan was pro-gun control because he feared the Black Panthers. The Ku Klux Klan was founded in order to seize guns from free blacks. I don't buy the notion of Second Amendment absolutists that individually-owned guns are the best defense against the imposition of tyrannical rule in America, if anything it’s comical, I think we're pretty safe from tyrannical rule. But if you were an African-American in 1870s or 1950s, you might have felt a lot safer with a gun. It is my belief that ‘qualified people’ have the right to bear arms, and that the government has the right and responsibility to regulate the sale and ‘the carry’ of guns. There seems to be no sense with the gun-crowed that the very presence of a gun – like all forms of power – alters its bearer’s state of mind, that the possession of a tool of lethal violence will invariably change how one interacts with the world. George Zimmerman, by his own telling, had he been unarmed he would have never stepped out his car.

Yes and No.

Capitalism is noble as long as it is honorable and fair.

Bill Clinton and the Republicans terminated Glass/Steagall which gave Wall Street a license to steal.

Crony Capitalism is the problem along with no fair/free markets, corporate welfare, tax loopholes that benefit the wealthy, government subsidies, extremely bloated waste and fraud at the Pentagon, tax havens, outsourcing, etc. et cetera.

Some of our worst presidents were Nixon to Obama and all in between.

There Is No Santa Claus and Bill Clinton Was Not an Economic Savior
December 26, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/cgvjsg9
The truth is often painful but nonetheless it is important that we live in the real world. Just as little kids have to come to grips with the fact that there is no Santa Claus, it is necessary for millions of liberals, including many who think of themselves as highly knowledgeable about economic matters, to realize that President Clinton's policies sent the economy seriously off course. In Washington it is common to tout the budget surpluses of the Clinton years as some momentous achievement, as though the point of economic policy is to run budget surpluses. Of course the point of economic policy is to produce an economy that improves the lives of the people in a sustainable way. Clinton badly flunked this test.
The Clinton economy was driven by a stock bubble. This is not a debatable point. The ratio of market-wide stock prices to corporate earnings was well over 30 to 1 at the peak of the bubble in 2000. This is more than twice the historic average.
This run-up in stock prices drove the economy in two ways. First, since any good huckster could make millions selling shares in dot.whatever, we had many hucksters starting nutball businesses that never had a prayer of making a profit. This is not much of a long-run economic strategy, but in the short-term it led to an increase in investment.

You skew the data any way you want, ol boy. I'll take out of it what ever logic I can...
If it is guns that kill people according to you...why are there over 500 murders in Britian and more there than the entire state of New York?

Simple, the UK includes any kind of aggravated assault in their stats the US shows homicides only! NYC, for instance, has 40% more cops on the street, every day, than London!

Mr. Spock, what does movement from continents have to do with fish fossils found on the highest mountain tops.

They had to be under water at some point in history.

Are you suggesting that the mountains went up thousands of feet in the air against gravity?

The USA has the most guns of any nation worldwide, so if guns keep you safe, how come the USA ranks #1 in killings with guns?

I am pro gun BTW.
