Top Killers in the U.S.
From the Centers for Disease Control, The F.B.I. and The Federal Government.
1. Tobacco use 529,000
2. Medical Errors 195,000
3. Alcohol Abuse 107,400
4. Motor Vehicle Accidents 34,485
5. Unintentional Poisoning 31,758
6. Drug Abuse 25,500
7. Accidental Falls 24,792
8. Non-Firearm Homicides 16,799
9. Firearm Related Homicides 11,493

Looks to me we need to ban a few other things before we worry about firearms. Lets start with tobacco and all products related to tobacco. Then we would get to doctors and the health care field. Of course just go down the line till you get to firearms. But it looks to me that Dr.'s are more dangerous that a gun.
While I am here does anyone know what a Boxelder bug is? They are better known as democrats. I have figured out why they are called democrats. They are stupid, they don't do anything and they are a pain in the ass.

If the numbers and facts were correct we would be glad to listen to them. But speaking, just for myself, when I hear numbers tossed about by the right I tend to disbelieve them until I check for myself, because I have found that more times than not they are incorrect. This is another perfect example, although - the original poster did not quantify any of his numbers so it is hard to say if he just made them up or they were taken from the 1920s.

In May 2011, The CDC reports an extremely higher number than what the previous poster would like you to think when it comes to firearm deaths.

On a side note "gun grabbers" that's funny - what exactly is a gun grabber?

From the CDC:

"Violence-related firearm deaths remain an important public health concern in the United States. During 2006--2007, a total of 25,423 firearm homicides and 34,235 firearm suicides occurred among U.S. residents (1). These national totals include 4,166 firearm homicides and 1,446 firearm suicides among youths aged 10--19 years; the rate of firearm homicides among youths slightly exceeded the rate among persons of all ages"

"During 2006--2007, firearm suicide and firearm homicide were the fourth and fifth leading causes of injury death in the United States, respectively (1). For youths aged 10--19 years, firearm homicide was the second leading cause and firearm suicide was the fifth leading cause of injury death nationally"

If you believe that is logical, you are stupid. Tobacco in cigarette form is essentially unavailable except to the stupid at a high price due to the method by which it is taxed. I have no problem with increasing the taxes on tobacco, alcxohol, and guns 100% to raise needed revenue.

#s 2, 4, 5, and 7 cannot be legislated against.

the specifics of #3, alcohol abuse, are somewhat in question. Would cars crashed by drunks count as #3 or #4, or both? Either way, it's a clear indication the statistics are being fudged.

#6 is also dubious. Notice it says "drug abuse," not "drug overdoses". Some could be medical errors, even counting twice again to fool the public. If not referring only to overdoes, what else is included?

As for #8, "Non-firearms homicides, by this count this type of homicide - all added together, including pushing off a cliff, running over by a jeep, fatal child abuse, throwing one's wife overboard on a cruise ship, Samauri attacks, etc., all added together, exceeds firearms homicides. obviously this is done to disguise the fact that as a single type of method of murder, gun violence exceeds all of the above.
While I am here does anyone know what a Boxelder bug is? They are better known as democrats. I have figured out why they are called democrats. They are stupid, they don't do anything and they are a pain in the ass.
It sounds like this poor fella is admitting he puts boxelder bugs up his butt. Pretty soon he'll be escalating to grasshoppers and praying manti. Not unusual since it os obvous the poor slob is overcome with manhood issues.

Well, duh. Cannibis is certainly less harmful than tobacco, alcohol, or guns. It is only illegal because William Randolph Hearst sought to corner the paper market and wanted to drive cheaper hemp paper, made from the cannibis plant, out of business. So he used his newspapers to spread lies about marijuana to full the gullible and it worked.

All of you should be pleased to know that this last weekend I actually sold one of my firearms. It was a nice little SKS that I didn't think i needed anymore. And with the money I collected I decided to purchase a sweet Remington model 7400 still semi automatic just like the SKS but it has so much more power I love it!

Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of crimes were thwarted as a result of firearms used for defensive purposes.
Interesting that "youths" include 18 & 19 year olds.

"Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of crimes were thwarted..." How about a legitimate site, source for that claim, if you can provide it, angry gray box? Relax, I don't expect to see one... LOL

And Chicago is one of the cities with the strictest gun control laws.
Also Obumer can legislate laws against gang violence to cut down on that. You idiots that want to replace guns with feathers, I feel sorry for you. When you are in trouble I will not use one of my guns to protect you.

And no i am not comparing cars to guns I'm just saying a car on the highway encounters thousands of other cars everyday and the potential for accidents is at a higher level.
I have to disagree with You just based on the fact that cars may cause "accidents", but You have to physically(by hand) pull the trigger on a gun... meaning it's a physical/conscious effort to fire a gun.

As if you had that ability at all. Some adolescent like you showing up armed is just going to make things worse. "I believe you, Yegg."
