Since there are so many guns and no gun laws.

Why are you 25 times more likely to be killed with a gun in america than countries with sane gun laws? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 172 days ago -

no gun laws.......... LOL 

Judas --- 172 days ago -

Since there are so many guns and no WORTHWHILE gun laws.


Not to mention all the UGE bucks spent on the national defense where no country even comes close. 

Judas --- 172 days ago -

I'm addressing you Soup since the fuzzman is in the cooler again. What else is new? Moddie with a h-on. 

idontplaynice --- 172 days ago -

Mexico has very restrictive gun laws. It is way safer than the USA, right? LOL 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 172 days ago -

Judy...... mopping up for fuzzball. 

RayofHope --- 172 days ago -

Since there are so many guns and no gun laws.

It is a strange statement.

Also, getting a license to carry a handgun in most states, is not as easy as some people claim.

"Win are you 25 times more likely to be killed with a gun in America....



Source? That is written like a fact but I'd like to see the data. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 171 days ago -

There isn't one. Just unsubstantiated drivel and liberal talking points. 

jackass --- 171 days ago -

Gun death stats are an illusion just like vehicle related deaths...there?s about 4 deaths by gun for every 100,000 people in our country. The chances of dying by gun or in a car accident are practically zero... 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 171 days ago -

LOL..........

You're more likely to die from a fall than you are from a gunshot.

Fuzzy usually states his opinion as fact. It's what libs do. 

Sharticus --- 169 days ago -

Where there's a will, there's a way 

jackass --- 169 days ago -

Because America likes violence...I guarantee your kids saw a murder in tv before they ever saw a naked boob... 

fuzz81 --- 168 days ago -

SSFG, the data is readily available. Are you waiting for Fox News to lie to you about it, or will you go find it yourself?

Here?s an example:

Firearm Homicide rates per 100,000
Australia: 0.18
US: 4.62

4.62/0.18=25.666 times 

fuzz81 --- 168 days ago -

Crickets when the simpletons are shown the data 

Prolix Raconteur --- 167 days ago -

Here's the actual data. While you are 11 times, not 25, more likely to be shot to death in the US, those Aussies sure a rapey bunch.

Source? That is written like a fact but I'd like to see the data.

School shootings aren't enough data for you? Movie theater shootings are down. Concert venue shootings are down. But added together with school shootings and traffic shootings should convince even the most dense among us that the odds of being shot are ever increasing.

How much data is enough data? 

the Markster --- 167 days ago -

Im sure until its one of your loved ones being shot and or killed. There will never be enough data. Sadly if that day ever comes it will be too late for someone.

Curious. Does anyone care if they are shot by a good guy or a bad guy with a gun? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 167 days ago -

How much data is enough data?

Would you even understand it? 

the Markster --- 167 days ago -

Would you even understand it?

Curious:
When designing your pointless posts. Do you ever thank your lucky stars that I am not a moderator?

If it ever happens, trust me. You will be the 1st to know.

Are you trying to start something ALREADY? Starting with the insults?? I wasn't talking to you anyway. Then you whine when people respond. Grow up.

Consider yourself warned. 

the Markster --- 167 days ago -

Consider yourself warned.

Left you a msg 

the Markster --- 167 days ago -

Simple question Sags. Dont like it. Tuff

Do we really need to point out your obvious bias, SSFG?

Mark inferred density in those that don't get it and he gets warned. Then there's this from Soup that goes unaddressed by you:
Would you even understand it??


Same type of thing.
Don't you get it? Maybe if you admit your bias or start treating all posters the same, so many of them won't be riding your freaking back. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 167 days ago -

You just can't control yourself, can you. Most people's frontal lobes are developed by the time they're in their late 20's- 

Judas --- 167 days ago -

Thanks for another example. Mark gets called out for an insult but Soup does not and I betcha ATD doesn't either.

Bring on some new fair moderators and I bet the KU users will increase again . 

fuzz81 --- 167 days ago -

Here's the actual data

That data is from 2002.

Mexico has a lower firearm homicide rate than the US. LOL

Simple. Because of people like him.

OrdinaryGuy --- 167 days ago -

In 2010 the firearm homicide rate was 10 people/100,000 in Mexico.[

OrdinaryGuy --- 167 days ago -

But still better than HRC!! 

Judas --- 167 days ago -

 

OrdinaryGuy --- 167 days ago -

Once again...how far did Obama get with North Korea? Let's see....NOWHERE!! It now seems that they want to talk. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 167 days ago -

BTW....Obama does know how to do a really good apology tour!

I?m sorry that my point completely eluded you.

Prolix went and found old data in a failed attempt to prove me wrong.



I presented it. Where?s your response? Still waiting for Fox News to tell you what your outrage du jour is? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 167 days ago -

Actually, you posted data with no source. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 167 days ago -

What's next? Knife control ala Mayor Khan in London. LOL....
