I already told you, the vast majority of us *are.*
Out of over a hundred million of us? I'd say we were doing a damned fine job.<quoted text>Guns were used in 11,422 homicides and 19,392 suicides in 2010, and were used to wound over 59,208 people. Looks like you "responsible" gun owners are doing a piss poor job.
Of course, when you cite "homicides," you aren't differentiating between gang crime and self defense or police shootings.
Suicides? One doesn't need a gun to commit suicide. Might make it easier, but if one is determined, he's gonna do it. One of the guys who broke into my home committed suicide in his prison cell by hanging himself with a bed sheet.
Looks like you lose again, Vladimir.
