The purpose of a euphemism is because the main word is too harsh. What is too harsh about the word fetus? Oh yeah that's right, when used it disproves your statements. Gotcha.... Now we understand so much better....

So then you're trying to convince everyone that YOU know more than every medical institution in the country? LOL.... I've seen a lot of delusional statements made by you anti-choicers, but that one really takes the cake... LOL....

<quoted text> Because it is FACT.
"Summary
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.
Argument
Most people keep guns in their homes for self-protection. The image of an unknown criminal breaking into your house is an important one for gun advocates, because it justifies keeping a gun in the home. But to gun control advocates, a gun in the home means that a family fight or a drinking binge is more likely to turn deadly. Which view is more accurate?
In an attempt to answer this question, a team led by Dr. Arthur Kellermann of Emory University conducted a survey of 388 homes that had experienced homicides.
(1) They found that 76.7 percent of the victims were killed by a spouse, family member or someone they knew, and there was no forced entry into the home 84.3 percent of the time.
Strangers comprised only 3.6 percent of the killers. However, the killer was never identified in 17.4 percent of the cases.
Of the 420 homicides they originally investigated, 96.4 percent were illegal.
Only 3.6 percent were ruled legally excusable homicide (that is, self-defense).
After eliminating the impact of other variables like illegal drugs and domestic violence, the researchers found that the risk of getting killed was 2.7 times greater in homes with a gun than without them. No protective benefit of possessing a firearm was ever found, not even for a single one of the 14 subgroups studied."

<quoted text>A cars main purpose is transportation. A guns main purpose is to kill. BIG difference! I know you'll act like a 5 year old and say "prove it" but that's not going to convince anyone that guns aren't produced to kill, so you lose.

That's why guns drive them around in a murderous relationship.

this is just flat a$$ wrong. either you don't have a c.ue about what you are writting or you are deliberately spouting falshoods.
The overwhelming majority of the time bullets are not shot a persons. The overwhelming majority of the time they are shot at inanimate objects, then after that would probably come animals and a very distant third may be people.
I don't want to tax your tiny little brain TOO much so I'll make this post much shorter and hopefully very easy for you to understand:

What are hand guns used for? Who are hand guns shot at? What is the intended purpose of a hand gun?

As I told RR, bad enough that he owns guns, that he keeps them loaded in his house, that his sons have a 22 in their room, that RR thinks being a gun owner is a sign of being a good American, but to not even own up to what the purpose of guns is??

Can he really be THAT stupid and/or that smarmy?

Say it ain't so, IANS!!

And in the case of hand guns, you're either a total ignoramus or else just a flat out liar.
The overwhelming majority of times bullets are shot from a hand gun are shot at PERSONS.
You are an IDIOT.
"These numbers are striking: according to the statistics reported above, fully 2/3 of the American murder victims from the years listed were killed by a firearm of some type, dwarfing the numbers of those killed by other weapons. In fact, the next most common weapon used, listed as “knives or cutting instruments,” accounts for 13% of all murders (as opposed to 66% for firearms). This means that anyone murdered during that time was five times as likely to be shot to death than killed by a knife or cutting instrument."

No you are a total moron!

The vast number of bullets fired from any firewarm are fired at inanimate objects.
The vast majority of bullets fired are fired at a range or at cans or bottles in practice you ignorant POS!

3 Weeks ago I went to the reange with my son we fired over 300 rounds of amunition down range not a single shot was dorected aty a person and out of all those bullets 200 were from handguns.

Now why don't you try and pull your head out of your rectum and get a clue?

I will try to dumb it down to pre school level so you will have a slim possiblity of understanding.

The vast majority of hand guns are fired at targets not people. They can be fired at people but the overwhelming majority of ammunition fired from them is in practice.
As I said 3 weeks ago myself and my son fired 200 rounds from our handguns and not 1 was fired at a person.
Now you stupid lying POS try and buy a clue!
