It's fun to remember things, huh? I remember your comment not too many pages ago where, upon learning of a young boy that was killed in a gun accident, you cleverly referred to it as "thinning out the herd". Now why would a god fearing, upright Christian make a statement like that? Here's a link in case your memory fails you.
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TOCO8TE...
FYI

The link you provided looks like this (divided twice so that you can see it all):

[1] http://www.topix.com/ forum/topstories/ TOCO8TEGNA8I5JT63/ p27599

This only takes us to a page, not directly to any of the posts on it.

There are two other formats that Topix uses:

[2] http://www.topix.com/ forum/topstories/ TOCO8TEGNA8I5JT63/ p27599#c580059

and

[3] http://www.topix.com/ forum/topstories/ TOCO8TEGNA8I5JT63/ post580059

Notice that these specify post numbers.

Posts migrate from one page to another in Topix, probably as a result of post deletions. The post you wanted is no longer on page 27599. It is now on page 27606, meaning that format [2] won't find your post any more, either.

This would work: http://www.topix.com/ forum/topstories/ TOCO8TEGNA8I5JT63/ p27606#c580059

Here it is intact for you to test. Look at the URL it generates; http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TOCO8TE...

Therefore, of these choices [3] is the preferred format, since it doesn't specify a page number.

How do you get links in this format? The only way I have found is to take it right from the post itself rather than the URL bar on your browser or anywhere. Right click on the post number just to the left of the Judgit function, and select Copy Link Location. Your link will always be good unless the post is deleted.

Oops!

Most of you Christians can't conceal your essential natures very well or for very long, can you? Under a very thin veneer of faux love is a burning hatred for anybody that would challenge your faith.

It's been noted how often the Christian's version of god is merely an extension of his own ego - the reason that the god always agrees with him, and hates what he hates.

Still, it's odd that you would meltdown at that comment.

Guns in the Home and Risk of a Violent Death in the Home: Findings from a National Study
http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/content/160/10/...

"Data from a US mortality follow-back survey were analyzed to determine whether having a firearm in the home increases the risk of a violent death in the home and whether risk varies by storage practice, type of gun, or number of guns in the home. Those persons with guns in the home were at greater risk than those without guns in the home of dying from a homicide in the home (adjusted odds ratio = 1.9, 95% confidence interval: 1.1, 3.4). They were also at greater risk of dying from a firearm homicide, but risk varied by age and whether the person was living with others at the time of death.

"The risk of dying from a suicide in the home was greater for males in homes with guns than for males without guns in the home (adjusted odds ratio = 10.4, 95% confidence interval: 5.8, 18.9). Persons with guns in the home were also more likely to have died from suicide committed with a firearm than from one committed by using a different method (adjusted odds ratio = 31.1, 95% confidence interval: 19.5, 49.6). Results show that regardless of storage practice, type of gun, or number of firearms in the home, having a gun in the home was associated with an increased risk of firearm homicide and firearm suicide in the home."

And another [Note that this is the 1993 Kellerman study and not the 1986 one]:

"Keeping a gun in the home carries a murder risk 2.7 times greater than not keeping one, according to a study by Arthur Kellermann. The National Rifle Association has fiercely attacked this study, but it remains valid despite its criticisms. The study found that people are 21 times more likely to be killed by someone they know than a stranger breaking into the house. Half of the murders were over arguments or romantic triangles. The study also found that the increased murder rate in gun-owning households was entirely due to an increase in gun homicides only, not any other murder method.

"It further found that gun-owning households saw an increased murder risk by family or intimate acquaintances, not by strangers or non-intimate acquaintances. The most straightforward explanation is that the presence of a gun increases the possibility that a normal family fight or drinking binge will become deadly. No other explanation fits the above facts."

Lil Ticked wrote:
According to the National Self Defense Survey conducted by Florida State University criminologists in 1994, the rate of Defensive Gun Uses can be projected nationwide to approximately 2.5 million per year -- one Defensive Gun Use every 13 seconds.

Among 15.7% of gun defenders interviewed nationwide during The National Self Defense Survey, the defender believed that someone "almost certainly" would have died had the gun not been used for protection -- a life saved by a privately held gun about once every 1.3 minutes.(In another 14.2% cases, the defender believed someone "probably" would have died if the gun hadn't been used in defense.)

In 83.5% of these successful gun defenses, the attacker either threatened or used force first -- disproving the myth that having a gun available for defense wouldn't make any difference.
In 91.7% of these incidents the defensive use of a gun did not wound or kill the criminal attacker (and the gun defense wouldn't be called "newsworthy" by newspaper or TV news editors). In 64.2% of these gun-defense cases, the police learned of the defense, which means that the media could also find out and report on them if they chose to.

In 73.4% of these gun-defense incidents, the attacker was a stranger to the intended victim.(Defenses against a family member or intimate were rare -- well under 10%.) This disproves the myth that a gun kept for defense will most likely be used against a family member or someone you love.

In over half of these gun defense incidents, the defender was facing two or more attackers -- and three or more attackers in over a quarter of these cases.(No means of defense other than a firearm -- martial arts, pepper spray, or stun guns -- gives a potential victim a decent chance of getting away uninjured when facing multiple attackers.)

In 79.7% of these gun defenses, the defender used a concealable handgun. A quarter of the gun defenses occured in places away from the defender's home.

Not that any of that matters because as we all know nobody is able to obtain illegal drugs since the "drug War" started.
This is only looking at gun defenses. You need to look at all of the accidental deaths, hot blooded murders of spouses, and suicides associated with guns in the home. Studies consistently show that a gun in the home is more likely to take the life of somebody you love than to save it.

Karl always was and remains an over the top bomb thrower. People will continue to die needlessly for any number of reasons. They will continue to do so in far greater numbers from many other causes besides guns.NEVER is there any mention of the lives saved by guns.

Thanks for that.

As he was mentioning trends, like the reduction in American crime that you mentioned, and the higher violent crime rates in the UK relative to the US, he seems to have overlooked the apparent value of gun control in the UK.

For whatever reason the UK suffers so much more violent crime per capita than the US, despite that fact, the homicide by gun rate is much lower than in the US. Isn't that significant?

But he makes an excellent point that the media don't mention the huge reduction in violent crime and murder in America that has occurred over the last two decades, and that seems surprising. Almost everybody thinks the opposite - that American society is more out of control than ever.

And he seems suspicious of this fact. Me, too, now that he brings it to my attention. Why isn't somebody taking credit for that? Why isn't that common knowledge? Even if it serves some selfish interest to downplay that, still, would that explain the media's relative silence on the matter? Do they need to be prodded to report that?
