yeah, I bet you were top debater at Densa elementary school weren't you....
how many examples have I provided of gun control countries having the lowest gun homicides deaths....yet you seem to gloss over that and focus on your 2nd amendment right....yeah.. you are very astute debater.....bwhahhahahhahahhah ahah
Because there are a lot of factors that go into a low homicide rate other than the presence or absense of guns. Examples are population density, income levels, population diversity, etc.

There are examples all over this country of cities and counties with extremely low to non-existent homicide rates with almost total gun ownership.

Now put that in your crackpipe and smoke it.

wow...that's convincing....let's see... vermont has almost no restrictions on ownership and low homicide rate....
Hawaii has high restrictions on gun ownership and almost the same low homicide rate....
So if you admit that gun restrictions have little to do with the homicide rate, why are you so hell bent on passing NEW restrictions???

Because they aren't interested in public safety, if they were they would be working on controlling the criminals and psychos walking free on our streets. They are just interested in disarming the American people so that controlling the population will be more easily possible. Their ultimate goal is a total ban on firearms and they will use any opportunity to further that agenda by chipping away another little piece of the 2nd amendment.

There isn't.

Let's compare to a country that has a higher population density and almost no- less than one average day in the USA- firearms fatalities.

There is no honest way to claim that liberals have not and are not deeply invested in crime reduction and mental health. That claim is a tactic to avoid honestly addressing the issue.

You should be worried about the revolving door your leftist liberal policies have created in the criminal justice system pumping out thousands of repeat offenders every day. It is your bullshit "feel good" liberal policies that have hundreds of thousands of extremely dangerous individuals released to plan and execute their mayhem on innocent people......with or without guns. YOU and your ilk have created the problem, take a bow. Now STFU and drag your satan worshiping ass back into whatever slimy hole you crawled out of. Oh, and have a nice day!

The .45-caliber pistol that killed Lucas Heagren, 3, on Memorial Day last year at his Ohio home had been temporarily hidden under the couch by his father. But Lucas found it and shot himself through the right eye.“It’s bad,” his mother told the 911 dispatcher.“It’s really bad.”

A few days later in Georgia, Cassie Culpepper, 11, was riding in the back of a pickup with her 12-year-old brother and two other children. Her brother started playing with a pistol his father had lent him to scare coyotes. Believing he had removed all the bullets, he pointed the pistol at his sister and squeezed the trigger. It fired, and blood poured from Cassie’s mouth.

Just a few weeks earlier, in Houston, a group of youths found a Glock pistol in an apartment closet while searching for snack money. A 15-year-old boy was handling the gun when it went off. Alex Whitfield, who had just turned 11, was struck. A relative found the bullet in his ashes from the funeral home.
Bearing Arms

Cases like these are among the most gut-wrenching of gun deaths. Children shot accidentally — usually by other children — are collateral casualties of the accessibility of guns in America, their deaths all the more devastating for being eminently preventable.

They die in the households of police officers and drug dealers, in broken homes and close-knit families, on rural farms and in city apartments. Some adults whose guns were used had tried to store them safely; others were grossly negligent. Still others pulled the trigger themselves, accidentally fracturing their own families while cleaning a pistol or hunting.

And there are far more of these innocent victims than official records show.

A New York Times review of hundreds of child firearm deaths found that accidental shootings occurred roughly twice as often as the records indicate, because of idiosyncrasies in how such deaths are classified by the authorities. The killings of Lucas, Cassie and Alex, for instance, were not recorded as accidents. Nor were more than half of the 259 accidental firearm deaths of children under age 15 identified by The Times in eight states where records were available.

As a result, scores of accidental killings are not reflected in the official statistics that have framed the debate over how to protect children from guns.

The National Rifle Association cited the lower official numbers this year in a fact sheet opposing “safe storage” laws, saying children were more likely to be killed by falls, poisoning or environmental factors — an incorrect assertion if the actual number of accidental firearm deaths is significantly higher.

In all, fewer than 20 states have enacted laws to hold adults criminally liable if they fail to store guns safely, enabling children to access them.

Legislative and other efforts to promote the development of childproof weapons using “smart gun” technology have similarly stalled. Technical issues have been an obstacle, but so have N.R.A. arguments that the problem is relatively insignificant and the technology unneeded.

Because of maneuvering in Congress by the gun lobby and its allies, firearms have also been exempted from regulation by the Consumer Product Safety Commission since its inception.

Even with a proper count, intentional shooting deaths of children — including gang shootings and murder-suicides by family members — far exceed accidental gun deaths. But accidents, more than the other firearm-related deaths, come with endless hypotheticals about what could have been done differently.

The rifle association’s lobbying arm recently posted on its Web site a claim that adult criminals who mishandle firearms — as opposed to law-abiding gun owners — are responsible for most fatal accidents involving children. But The Times’s review found that a vast majority of cases revolved around children’s access to firearms, with the shooting either self-inflicted or done by another child.
