Oops. I misspoke. Let me clarify that for you.
Japan has more total suicides (32,845 in 2009 (Wiki)) with almost no gun ownership, while the US has far less firearm suicides
I see: now you are comparing ALL suicides in Japan to JUST gun suicides in the USA.

HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Sticky: why don't you compare the number of GUN suicides in Japan to the number of GUN suicides in the USA?

HAHAHAHAHAAHAH!

I am not saying they don't matter. I am dismissing them because there is nothing you or I can do about them. Or do you think you can stop someone who is determined to kill themself???
That's what I've been saying all day - there's nothing to do about gun violence in the US. Dead kids and teachers are simply the price we have to pay for our Second Amendment rights. Anyone who attempts to reduce the level of gun violence is a Godless socialist communist libtard trying to turn the country into a police state.

What's your point? I'm AGREEING with your position.

Because that is not what you claimed earlier. You said less guns = less suicides. So if what you say is true, the US should FAR EXCEED the total number of suicides because of our vast ownership of guns. Not onyl differ by just a few thousand. Especially since there are MILLIONS of guns in possession in the US.

And yes, the statement I made earlier was wrong the way I worded it. And I will freely admit it. That is also the reason I quantified for you, because I KNEW you would latch on to that little error like a putbill after as bone.

Funny how you aren't man enough to admit your mistakes when you are proven wrong time and time again.

I have issue with mandatory sentencing, and sentencing in general. In Chicago, a person with a history if violence, was arrested for murder. His previous sentence, for murder, was boot camp and probation. The judge had discretion, and chose a lenient sentence for this guy.
Also, Illinois is debating if 85% served time is justified for release. This makes no sense, shouldn't someone serve the full sentence?
After all, they committed the act 100%.
The toddler case, if it is shown it was negligence, they must be held accountable. The toddler did not the ability of knowing the firearm was dangerous, the adult did. Had another adult been killed and not a toddler, I would be less inclined to suggest punishment. The adult has
the ability to understand.
My issue with mandatory sentencing is it is not applied where it should be. Crimes that do not cause death, don't need mandatory sentencing. Crimes with criminal intent that cause death or injury, should have a mandatory sentence, and 100% served time.
If it's mandatory, it's being applied everywhere, right?

<quoted text>You did not begin respectfully with me when I came to this thread. You were trite, condescending, insulting, and untruthful. You still are. You have just been untruthful again, you will not accept or acknowledge ANY ideas about reducing violence in our society that do not include infringing on the rights of honest law abiding gun owners (who, by the way, aren't the ones responsible for the violence).
As you know, we didn't begin our relationship in this thread. We started it in a thread that's been deleted. That's where you lost your cool after I continually asked you to back up your assertions with evidence. That's where you began the name-calling and personal attacks.

So just because a new thread starts doesn't mean your history has been erased. I merely gave you what you gave me first.

Ok, I think you are the first one I've seen calling for the confiscation of all guns.
Thank you for your straight-forward honesty.

You did it just like you usually do.

Lying again. I never said there was "nothing to do about gun violence in the US". In fact, I have made several suggestions on ways to help.

Your sarcasm is pathetic.

I was at sea for 271 days in one year- and had duty on top of that, Shug.
So don't tell me about sea time.
Unless you want to insist you never ported.
Merchant seaman? USNS? Longshoreman?

Oh and we ported. 18 different countries in 6 years. Several more than once.

Mandatory sentencing applies to only some crimes, not all. And it depends what level the person is arrested/charged/tried in.

I must have missed them. I guess your relentless arguing against everybody else's suggestions must have drowned them out.

Could you list them again?

You really need to get that knee-jerk lying accusation under control. You haven't been right yet and continuing to make that claim just makes you look desperate and dishonest.

Oh, I thought you meant that in crimes that carry mandatory sentences, they were not being applied.

Transferring sentencing power from judges directly involved in cases to the legislature is a mistake. It's time to end that failed policy.

I'm sure you honestly believe that.

Too bad you can't ever find an example when challenged to do so, huh?

You lie again. This is the first thread where I had any communication with you and it was you who resorted to personal attacks and name calling. Of course YOU described it as "using descriptors" so it wasn't name calling when YOU did it. You lie so much that you can't remember what you lied about. LMAO!!!

And denying that you lied makes you even more of a liar, doesn't it. Especially when I specifically stated what you lied about.

1. educating the young,
2. leaving violent criminals in jail until they can PROVE they are no longer a threat to those around them,
3. leaving the violent mentally ill locked up until they can prove they are no longer a threat to those around them.

All good starters that will NOT infringe on the rights of the law-abiding.
