I experience OMFG moments every day.

After my father died, I was cleaning out his garage and I found my Daisy BB gun that I got for Christmas probably a little older than Ralphie, but in exactly the same manner. Mom against it. All presents opened. No gun. Then "something" behind the couch over there.

Wrong, guns kill people. By reducing the the number of guns in a particular are inhabitated by humans you will reduce the likelihood of children being shot accidentally.

It doesn't surprise me that you're pro gun as well, another tickbox next to creationist liar.

You need to prove your god before you open your trap again god liar.

First you need to prove that I am a creationist. Second you need to prove that I am a liar. Third there are only an average of 851 accidental shootings per year in the U.S.
With a population of 311,591,917 the odds, according to the current average, of accidentally shooting a child is almost nil.

The incidence of homicides committed with a firearm in the US is much greater than most other advanced countries. In the United States in 2009 United Nations statistics record 3.0 intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 100,000 inhabitants; for comparison, the figure for the United Kingdom, with where handguns are prohibited was 0.07 per 100,000, about 40 times lower, and for Germany 0.2.[42]

All pro gun people are idiots. Fact.

violent crime is England and Wales alone are 3.5 times higher per/100,000 than that of America.
Seems as if removing guns does not remove violence.

It has been proven that governments can not be trusted with any type of weapon. Remove weapons from the hands of the beaurocrats and it will save more lives.

‘Hannity’ Guest Becomes so Furious That He Literally Covers His Ears & Refuses to Respond During Heated Gun Rights Debate

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/hannity-guest...

"Terrell became to frustrated by Hannity’s questioning that he literally covered his ears and refused to respond."

Just like the fundies! If you don't like something, you just cover up your ears, stomp your feet and cry like a toddler, that can't get his way.

Then claim that you try to discuss the issue.

Wrong, guns kill people, violence doesn't always kill people. YOu are once again using that typical creationist tactic of shifting the goalposts.

Nobody is arguing about what governments can be trusted with. Another attempt by you to derail the original point which is that guns kill people and should never be allowed in society.

Anyone who believes the opposite is an idiot who needs to stay the f*ck away from me.

America has on average 88.9 guns per hundred people.

The second country with the most guns is India, with just 4 per hundred people.

That alone should tell you how mental the US obsession with guns is.

Want to know what else kills people?
Cars, pitchforks, farm equipment, bombs, fireworks, swimming pools, etc.
Swimming pool deaths out numbers shooting deaths by quite a bit actually.
