All i said was those are sad numbers, why do you need to ask me a question that is off topic, is it because those number might be againts your thinking, and if it is why ask me, because i did not say what you need to hear.


Because it isn't off topic.

The thread is about "gun" deaths. So it is perfectly valid to ask you about them.

Cripes, this is like Animal Farm. All deaths are tragic, but some are more tragic than others (you know, if they're caused by those scary, nasty guns and involved the children).

Think of the children!

It's actually false numbers.

I can't find the "study" in the OP's source.

Other studies indicate a complete opposite of the OP's numbers.

Unless someone else can provide another link to the actual study and data collection, I'm going to call this a hoax.


Great point, Google produced this link to the OPs title: www.occupydemocrats.com... rprise-gun-deaths-and-violence-rampant-in-red-states-with-less-gun-regulation/

And another great source of facts! Who is Occupydemocrats.com???

Numbers Are used to push some:?ones agenda that is for sure, all i said was those numbers are sad, even if there skewed, make me sad to see so many deaths that is all.


All I want to do is verify the accuracy of the study.

All you have to do is look at California,Chicago, and Washington DC.

Areas with the highest number of firearm regulations to see the real deal here.

And the agenda that is being pushed.

And after the whole 72 page report.....

All they came up with is:



Conclusions;

Regulate the secondary market for guns.

Prohibit dangerous people from possessing guns.

Impose strong penalties on straw purchasers, gun traffickers, and persons illegally carrying guns.

Restrict access to particularly dangerous weapons.

see page 41



I didn't see anything about specific cities or ??? (you know what).

Hey, have you guys ever met a progressive or libertarian who is just fine with gun ownership? I know several.

I'm sick half to death of this ridiculous argument! No one is trying to grab anyone's guns. Period.


Well I consider myself a classic liberal and libertarian and think gun ownership is just fine. In fact I believe it to be a self evident and natural right.

Ask gun owners in Connecticut if their guns aren't being confiscated or at least trying to be confiscated. Yes they are trying to take them, failing but still trying.

I'm not making fun of death. I am making fun of how the deaths of children suddenly mean something when they are convenient to the preferred politics of the day. In contrast, those same children are just "clumps of cells" when we start talking about another hot topic of the day and not to be considered people at all. Who's making light of death then?

I don't know anyone in Connecticut, but I believe you if you say some people are trying to take their guns.
Otherwise, it appears we agree.

Are you in Connecticut?

Ah, I see you did not read my reply to your post in the Libertarian thread. If you had and actually, you know, paid attention, you'd understand my position on it.

But, no, it's more convenient to just hurl out a label.

It is a valid criticism that points out the LACK of consistency surrounding 'gun' deaths.

Apparently the only thing that cant be used to 'kill' them is a gun.

Procedures, and big pharmaceuticals is perfectly acceptable to prohibit, and end human life.

No, I'm not in Connecticut but here's a thread I did a while back on it. It's cover's the outlawing of certain guns, magazine's and the demands by TPTB there in regard to the issue. Also shows the response they got.

Of course, never mind that death can be avoided in many instances.

Clearly humanity is unable to fix the problems it creates, might as well give up.
