"A majority of Americans have a favorable view of the National Rifle Association, according to a new Gallup poll.

The poll also found that views of the gun advocacy group were more positive among gun owners, although owners said the NRA did not always reflect their views.

Fifty-four percent of respondents to the Gallup survey said they held a mostly favorable or very favorable view of the NRA, while 38 percent said they had a mostly unfavorable or very unfavorable view of the organization"

We can't be the only civilized country left without responsible gun control. The rest of the world views us as wild, nutty gun totin back country folks willing to shoot first and think later. Our gun death stats are proof we have skewed values in this country.

Europe is that-away. We'll chip in for your plane ticket, since you have no respect for our Constitutional rights.

Guns don't kill people, people kill other people. In Rwanda, 1994, 500,000 people were slain in 100 days, nearly all without modern firearms. Now that culture is walking around Columbus stuck in the 6th century. We need guns now more than ever.
This idiotic cliche has no merit. Guns DO kill people, and stupid people without access to semi automatic weapons have less option with better gun control in place. There's the statistics of dozens of other countries similar to the US with better gun control to prove it.

So having 20,000 Federal, Starte, County, Municipal, and City firearms laws on the books is not "responsible gun control"?

So the opinions of stagnant, socialist & Third World countries bothers you?

So you blame the guns and not the criminals using them? That is skewed.

That idiotic statement has no merit. When was the last time a gun was prosecuted for murder or manslaughter?

Right. Because criminals will obey laws if there are more laws.

Without any of the same socioeconomic dynamics too. Then there's that pesky 2nd Amendment.

Have guns loaded safety off in every house and building I own. Not one has went roaming around on its own killing. On the other hand crazy or determined people can kill with or without an inanimate object to use as a tool.

Those other countries have no problem punishing law-abiding citizens for other' crimes. We tend to frown on that in this country.

FBI: MORE PEOPLE KILLED WITH HAMMERS, CLUBS EACH YEAR THAN RIFLES

By AWR HAWKINS, Breitbart.com

According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.

This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats' feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course.

However, it appears the zeal of Sens. like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) is misdirected. For in looking at the FBI numbers from 2005 to 2011, the number of murders by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murders committed with a rifle.

Think about it: In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618.
And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.

For example, in 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.

While the FBI makes is clear that some of the "murder by rifle" numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murders with non-categorized types of guns, it does not change the fact that their annual reports consistently show more lives are taken each year with these blunt objects than are taken with Feinstein's dreaded rifle.

Another interesting fact: According to the FBI, nearly twice as many people are killed by hands and fists each year than are killed by murderers who use rifles.

And there are countries with STRICT gun control that have HIGHER per capita crime than the USA.
So much for that...

In the case of Diane the dog faced broad it woukd be great news if she were beaten nearly to death with a hammer. Then when healed up beaten again.

I'll bet none of those people killed by hammers and clubs would have been killed if they had been carrying rifles... so technically, the hammer didn't kill them, not having a rifle did :)
