So the current system doesn't work, yet you think ramping up a broken system up will fix the problem? So let's put alot more people in jail, and make sure every jail is run like Abu Ghraib. What could go wrong, right?
Who is going to pay for all the extra jails and associated overhead? You?
Extra jails? None needed.

Just take away all the fun stuff in prisons & jails.

Like TV, coffee, games, exercise equipment, drugs, pornos, etc.

Those criminals in prison deserve nothing but 3 meals & a cot.

Apparently you didn't look very carefully at the chart you provided the link to.
For the chart that lists "Percent of deaths in age groups", death by firearms was the 3rd highest percentage for those in the 5-14 year group, and the 2nd highest percentage for those in both the 15-24 and 25-34. It's *over 20%* in the 15-24 group, and passed only by motor vehicle accidents.
If you don't believe me, take another look.
I'll take another look.

Oh, wait. You didn't provide a link....

Why are you so wilfully and stupidly ignorant?
Since when was it you choice to think for other people?
I assume you were unable to think for Adam Lanza and James Holmes.
But hey, it don’t matter because RR wants a gun
Stupid.

Because I have guns, Lanza and Holmes WOULD NOT KILL ME....

You have no understanding of self defense?

No matter what, crazies will have guns.

I have guns to protect myself against them.

It's your child that will be shot dead because you have no means of defending your own child.

You're selfish.

No. I wait for evidence, so far all evidence suggests it everything is the result of natural interactions save the things we construct from the matter.

Do you have evidence to counter this?

Sounds plausible.
I think the tendancy amongst theists is to pick and choose which bits of the gospels they like the best and then invent their own jesus to fit their own ideas. So you can have anglican clergy believing in a "gentle" jesus meek and mild. Compared to fundie types believing in an angry jesus turning over money changers tables, and arming his militia with swords. This is what I learned in my time as a christian you can find scriptures to support whatever you want to believe in that they present widely diverse and contradictory points of view.
That has been my argument all along, the cherry picking and interpretation of the babble passages is quite frightening and has to date lead to 38000+ different sects of christianity reading at least 50 different “English” versions of the (latest) bible, who knows how many versions in other languages. Of course by definition they are all correct.

Maybe you should think about the atheist need to cherrypick.

Y'all are experts at it.

The funny thing is, you cherrypick a bible and a religion you claim to not believe in.

Rational people would call that a waste of time.

Creationists show their desperation when they spam the atheist forums with their ridiculous nonsense.

No proof of god, the only duty of a creationist online should be to sh*t the f*ck up and get a basic science education.

They should pass a law in the states for every creationist to be force-taught evolution. Anyone who doesn't want to learn or accept evolution should be labelled as a dishonest liar in their permanent record (unless they are mentally incapable).

And because guns were freely available Lanza and Holmes killed at will. Who gives a toss about you, you selfish moron, my concern is for innocent and unarmed children, not gung ho gun nuts with an immortality fixation

But of course had someone been armed then a shootout would have been out of the question - right? You moron

You have no idea of how I consider self defence, your ignorance is down to simple minded idiocy but that is accepted from a person of your obviously limited intellect

Not enough coffee.
