My car would be recalled or taken away if it was an issue.

I am not downplaying car accidents when I say this but the rate of Massacres has severely risen in the past 10 years compared to car accidents.

I am talking in circles, you people are "out of site, out of mind"

I cannot argue with stupid, bye

Those are skewed - we are talking about murder where 68% are committed with firearms in the US.

Total murders 11,961 100%
Total firearms 8,124 68%
Handguns 5,562 47%
Rifles 248 2%
Shotguns 262 2%
Firearms (type unknown) 2,052 17%
Knives or cutting instruments 1,567 13%
Other weapons 1,610 13%
Hands, fists, feet, etc.2 660 6%

Why do leftist politicians want to ban rifles which account for 3% of all gun deaths?

In other words, you cannot back up your position with facts.

We are talking about reality, where there is no political will, or popular support for a total ban on firearms.

There is no way to know who has guns and who doesn't.

Otherwise decent people, often own guns that are not-registered with anyone.

There is no force on earth large enough (or coordinated enough) to collect them door to door, by force, if necessary.

What you are doing is railing against a force of nature.

Nothing short of God and the Angels can do what you really wish we'd do about "guns."

More emotional responses, denial of fact, and name calling.


once again your ignorant thick skull does not take into consideration that even if those were facts, it does not include the incline or decline in the deaths of each murder weapon


And then when presented an opportunity to defnd your position, you refuse:


It IS important, you can go find that info yourself if you want, Im sure your wouldn't take my word for it.


When you won't even support your own arguments, how can you expect anyone to take you seriously?

(patiently waiting a fact-based, non-emotional response...)

Because the state is too busy buying up all the ammo, and giving them to drug cartels, and terrorists around the globe.

Supply versus demand issue I hazard to guess.

The STATE never has liked competition.

Im just upset bc I don't want people to die when we could easily do something about it and we got people like you guys who just don't care.

Sorry about the name calling. I just get very annoyed with ignorant people who twist facts and don't care about anything unless it happens to themselves.

Skewed you say ?

I can say with ALL Certainty of the 300 million plus firearms in the US.

Over 299million plus didn't get up all on their own, and walked anywhere, and shot anyone.

There are so many well done studies from around the world that shows gun control doesn't actually change anything. People are just murdered in different ways at the same rates. Countries with extremely hardcore gun control are over run with violence, gun crimes, and terrorism (surprise surprise, when you take power away from the people... they lose)

Because banning guns doesn't make murderers and psychopaths magically disappear. It doesn't make hate go away. It doesn't make you safer in your safe spaces. It doesn't address the underlying cause of irrational violence, it doesn't even put a bandaid on it. What it does do though, is keep law abiding citizens from exercising their 2nd amendment right. Those people that wouldn't hurt a fly, but would rather protect it against an aggressor, those the ones that are mostly effected.

But the left will continue to attack guns because they don't know any better and are nearly brain washed into ignoring facts because sometimes the truth hurts feelings.

Nope. Not another word (unchallenged) of that snip.

Every single person on this board cares that bad people corral the innocent and helpless and slaughter them.

What we won't stand for is emotional appeals to a fake reality where some magical politicians will "fix" the problem with more laws that do nothing.

The only ignorance in the entire topic is coming from the people who believe in magic, and use emotion to convey their disgust for others who can back up their argument with reality.

US will not take away your car because you're too stupid to take it in to get fixed because of a voluntary recall.

Oh, c'mon. You can't say you've never argued with yourself about doing or buying something.

Who said anything about what I want to do about guns? I was reporting facts. From the same source the OP used. This thread is misleading, in that it implies that firearms don't reality murder that many people, when in reality they are used in the murder of most Americans. Don't let the facts get in the way of your opinion of me though.

BTY, I own an AR-15.

But yeah, way to miss the entire point by ignoring everything except the very last thing I said. That's so Raven!
