Nope. I just don't want them in the hands of nuts, or the paws of wild animals...

You want to know what the United States would be like with the citizens disarmed. Look no further than Mexico.

The last figure released by the Mexican government on the number of dead during its 4 1/2-year, military-led crackdown on organized crime came in January, at just over 34,000. It covered the period from the start of the drug war in December 2006 until the end of 2010.

Would that somebody had thought about it at the time of the Crusades.

If you don't think that cause of death is related to gun control, then why did you bring it up in the first place?
RiversideRedneck wrote:
To point out that all this BS about gun control is pretty pointless. Considering the percentage of deaths caused by guns versus everything else is minor.
Except, which you seem to have so quickly forgotten, it's not a "minor" percentage of deaths when you're dealing with people 44 and younger. It's one of the top causes of death.

Your previous post showed just accidental deaths, not accidental deaths by gun.
Which *included* accidental deaths by gun. Funny you left out the part about suicide and homicide.

It's a linguine cause error, the browser doesn't display all the characters, and thus when saved to the database, unless the database is configured to handle them, they will show up as their unicode values in text.#65536 is the last unicode value, the website likely used that as a "splitter" character and didn't bother filtering it on their output, so the copy then paste included that character though it was not visible to him.

Have you seen Cliffhanger?

Someone will step up and be the hero. Maybe it will be the one you least expect, or maybe, just maybe, it will be the person you most expect, just maybe.

Don't worry about the fiscal cliff, I have it under control.

Let's concern ourselves with more important stuff.

The gun is essentially an extension of the pen*s.

Which is why its mostly macho american lunatics that wave their aks in the air on tv.
"The only reason people want to carry guns is because they have small d*cks"

These is obvious some thing you're very familiar with. How many guns did you carry before your lock up?

Nice seeing you've earned computer time Sepitc.

The point of it all is that a knife takes effort to kill someone and that a knife is useful for cutting vegetables.

Guns only have one purpose and that is to kill. If you are an unimaginative and fearful hobbyless drone and want to shoot some stupid ass targets targets, grow some balls and use a bow and arrow like a real man.

Buy having guns so freely in a society of idiots, no wonder you guys kill each other more than any country in the "free" world.

So simple to have a solution and yet you pour your sh*t high school story shootings over the world press every f*cking year like infantile idiots.
"Guns only have one purpose and that is to kill."

Tell that to the Trap shooters, skeet shooters, Olympic Biathlon shooters.

Or how about shooting holes in all the street signs durning hunting seasons.

What, fresh like Aero mint mousse? Mmmm.....

There's something more important than the fiscal cliff? That sounded pretty damn important to me.

OMG, OMG, does this mean we're under attack by squid aliens from the planet octovun???????
