Your apology only came after you repeatedly berated the original poster. Integrity? Hardly. Your childish nature leaves no room for integrity, but keep trying.
Since you value your opinions as facts there is no use in pointing out the lies that you post.
But please continue on with your circular logic to defend your positions, it's amusing to watch.
I never said you were Marauder, now did I? In fact I said the opposite - I said I CONFUSED you with Marauder, didn't I?<quoted text>
I am not Marauder.
With that sort of reading comprehension skill, it's no wonder you believe objectively false things.
You sure?Nor have "I" ever linked articles from the individuals you and the original poster were referring. It appears that not only do you lie but you appear to be delusional as well.
You might want to rethink that before you call SOMEBODY ELSE delusional.
Or a liar.
Do you honestly not remember posting this...Research conducted by Professors James Wright and Peter Rossi,6 for a landmark study funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, points to the armed citizen as possibly the most effective deterrent to crime in the nation. Wright and Rossi questioned over 1,800 felons serving time in prisons across the nation and found:
81% agreed the "smart criminal" will try to find out if a potential victim is armed.
74% felt that burglars avoided occupied dwellings for fear of being shot.
80% of "handgun predators" had encountered armed citizens.
40% did not commit a specific crime for fear that the victim was armed.
34% of "handgun predators" were scared off or shot at by armed victims.
57% felt that the typical criminal feared being shot by citizens more than he feared being shot by police.
Professor Kleck estimates that annually 1,500-2,800 felons are legally killed in "excusable self-defense" or "justifiable" shootings by civilians, and 8,000-16,000 criminals are wounded. This compares to 300-600 justifiable homicides by police. Yet, in most instances, civilians used a firearm to threaten, apprehend, shoot at a criminal, or to fire a warning shot without injuring anyone.
Based on his extensive independent survey research, Kleck estimates that each year Americans use guns for protection from criminals more than 2.5 million times annually. 7 U.S. Department of Justice victimization surveys show that protective use of a gun lessens the chance that robberies, rapes, and assaults will be successfully completed while also reducing the likelihood of victim injury. Clearly, criminals fear armed citizens.

...or are you LYING?
So is this your excuse for not finding even a SINGLE lie I've supposedly told?Since you value your opinions as facts there is no use in pointing out the lies that you post.
Because you haven't.
Just like everyone else who has made that accusation.
