It's the Guns, Stupid

“And that's the end of the issue”

Why do we have the same futile argument every time there is a mass killing? Advocates of gun control try to open a discussion about whether more reasonable weapons statutes might reduce the number of violent ... via Truthdig

That's cute.
Valentine's Day is coming up. You can put the gun in a box of chocolates! The perfect gift. I mean, you should eat the candy and then place the gun where the chocolates were. Sweet.
You should get one too, so you can both go to the firing range. Quality time - spent together.
Hey Teeman - If your wife doesn't own a gun, how do you know she's not banned?

They act like they just found out about it. Ha. Maybe hey did!
You know what they say. The ones who talk about it, are the ones who are not doing it. Lalalala. Tis true.
According to your logic... since you're talking about it, so you're not doing it too.

Wow... I must not be doing it also.

Yep all these gun nuts think that just having a gun is going to save there butts is very sadly mistaken !!!
It's better to have something and never need it than to need it and not have it.

I have 2 guns, one rifle and a sidearm. They sit quietly in a safe location and I only see them when I dust them.

Australia has much lower violent crime rates (and have been slowly declining for years) than America and our murder rate has dropped since gun control, and we didn’t have to lock up the highest percentage of our population in the world to do it, unlike America.
Yes, the firearm related incidents of violence have drop, but they had to create a new violent crime catagory that Australia had never experience. The new catagory - HOME INVASION. I guess if he bad guys know that there will be no chance of being me by a firearm they can feel confident that a baseball bat or tire iron will be enough to subdue a resident and rob them or do anything else they like.

Do you have a conversation with them?

Pat them and tell them how good they are?

Seriously you can't spot the irony...and justice?....Something is wrong with you gun owning twats when you can use the deaths of 26 people and the words of a President wanting to try and rectify or level the type of weaponry available to get guns off the street.....and you have then nerve to critisise my ironic humour.....you dick!
Yeah.I find it IRONIC the ONLY stories the lib media can find to report on involve CRIMINAL use of firearms. Very rarely the defensive use of one by a potential victim. The ONE story that I can recall being ran was the young mother in Georgia who shot an intruder. Thats the only one in years of media attacks on guns. Justice/fairness would be if the lame stream media would run a few more of them. I'd even settle for a twofer basis as "fair" reporting. But I don't plan on seeing THAT happen. Doesn't fit their lib agenda.

And having Men survive so they can wreak havoc when the women would have sorted it by now is bloody frustrating....men are useless at diplomacy, it's like they think they don't have to co-exist with others.....get rid of all the dicks and just breed from the ones with an IQ I say...slim pickings but better than nothing.
You do of course realise, that the time an infant spends with it's mother can be influential in it's latter character.

What a selfserving and moronic argument since it's "life" that kills the most people. Considering that we have as many as 250 million cars on the road every single day (not counting trucks) with an average of fatal accidents of 150 per day is remarkable. The very reason this is possible, besides seat belts and air bags, is strict rules and regulations supported by strict enforcement. Clearly, the very same concept can be applied to safe and responsible private gun ownership. Not to mention that these are “accidents” not deliberate and intentional kills as is the case with guns!

I am in the process of reading a rather long biography of Thomas Jefferson and will not be able to read your book by Kipling. Anyway, I am sure it would be over my head.

If you have time - could you tell me about it?

New Orleans is officially the murder capital of America, and with a homicide rate around 20 percent higher than the next city on the list (here’s looking at you, Detroit), the problems are snowballing out of control

Last year New Orleans police seized almost 350 illegal, unlicensed firearms in just two months. Although relatively clandestine for the moment, there are apparently licensed gun owners willing to buy and sell firearms for the sole purpose of distributing them on the streets of New Orleans to murderers and gang members with criminal records
