Speaking of selective stat mining, notice how I said three things; robbery, rape, and murder, yet you chose to just go for murder because it's the weakest of the three. That's laughable. The rape and robbery rate in london has been much higher than the US for a while now.

Has it? Show me a study using the same definitions and we can discuss it.

MURDER = UNLAWFUL MURDERING SOMEONE, DOES NOT INCLUDE: justified homicide AKA self-defense or suicide or accidents
RAPE = Forced sexual intercourse, DOES NOT INCLUDE: sexual assault, harassment, making you cry.
ROBBERY = Forcible/violent theft, theft under duress or entering into an occupied dwelling with intent to commit any larceny or felony within the dwelling

If your failed and spineless gun-control actually worked, the UK would have a 0.0% murder rate/violent crime rate.
As would all these other failed socialist ####-### states that employ various control measures - none have worked, no one has a 0.0% murder rate/violent crime rate.

I'll never give mine up. Period. But by all means, keep breathless speculating about it
Someone once said, when your enemies are making a mistake, don't stop them. I won't stop you or any other worthless socialist wanna-be controller. Socialists typically have no real power, money or lifestyle within their host nation (the nation they suckle their resources from).

Not interested in hearing any anti-gun arguments, I already know they're all logically unsound, unstable and frankly, stupid. Now, if you want to argue we need IQ tests or knowledge-of-the-issues tests before a vote, I'll support that fully. Otherwise, why are you still talking?

Laws don't work unless they are 100% effective? By that measure we should legalise everything as there are no 100% effective laws.

The US has 4x the homicide rate of any comparable country. Again that is rate not number, I know you seem to be struggling with that concept.

The illogical and frankly stupid argument is that gun laws don't work. But at least you have the honesty to admit you don't want to hear anything that challenges you word view.
