Lies? I don't need to watch the video, I know what I said is true due to the statistics.

Criminals get them illegally....is that so hard to understand?


People that go on rampages don't.


well why would they need to get them illegaly?


They don't, they already got them legally, or stole them from someone that got them legally and go on an impulse massacre. That's my point.

The Brits gave up their rights, and now have a camera on every street corner. You would think ALL crimes would be solved, with no guns, and all those cameras.......

A few months back this happened.


In an emotional statement, Garry Shewan, assistant chief constable of Greater Manchester police, says it is tragedy for the force after two female officers were shot attending a routine call on Tuesday. One died at the scene, and the other died in hospital after this statement was made. A man has been arrested and is being questioned

In 2002 — five years after enacting its gun ban — the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In fact, the percent of murders committed with a firearm was the highest it had ever been in 2006 (16.3 percent), says the D.C. Examiner. Even Australia’s Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research acknowledges that the gun ban had no significant impact on the amount of gun-involved crime: In 2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent. Sexual assault — Australia’s equivalent term for rape — increased 29.9 percent. Overall, Australia’s violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.

That's gun crime in general. The death rate by firearms is 0.2 while the US is 9.2.

You do know you can die from a knife wound........


Consider yourself lucky, to survive the first attack.






it is also very easy to die from being punched in the head.

Don't forget the good ole fashioned bat.
I'd prefer to have a gun to protect myself.

well drugs are illegal and they seem to kill a lot more people then guns. Anyone can get a gun illegally or legally if they really want to. so your point is?

My whole point is that they're NOT planned, if the gun wasn't already there it wouldn't have happened. It's not a hard thing to understand.

Actually, I can't be bothered discussing the subject any more. You guys can continue to kill each other and live in delusion while the rest of the world moves on, it doesn't really matter. Ignorance is bliss right? Statistically you're due another massacre soon.

I'm out.

Actually, it's legal prescription painkillers that kill the most people.
Deaths from illicit drug use is actually pretty low.

I agree with your main point tho.

Your statistics are wrong.

US murder rate for firearms is 2.97 per 100,000.

There are 270,000,000 legal guns in the US.

That statistic doesn't take in to account murder committed by illegal guns, which would bring that rate way down.





• The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world - an average of 88 per 100 people. That puts it first in the world for gun ownership - and even the number two country, Yemen, has significantly fewer - 54.8 per 100 people • But the US does not have the worst firearm murder rate - that prize belongs to Honduras, El Salvador and Jamaica. In fact, the US is number 28, with a rate of 2.97 per 100,000 people • Puerto Rico tops the world's table for firearms murders as a percentage of all homicides - 94.8%. It's followed by Sierra Leone in Africa and Saint Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean



Country % of homicides by firearm Number of homicides by firearm Homicide by firearm rate per 100,000 pop Rank by rate of ownership Average firearms per 100 people Average total all civilian firearms



England and Wales 6.6 41 0.07 88 6.2 3,400,000


United States 60 9,14. 2.97 1 88.8 270,000,000

This rant was a waste of time.
Just watching the news here, seems like Obama's gonna get your guns regardless.
What are you going to do about it ? shoot the innocent person doing his job to come and get your gun ?
Oh the irony

This country has faced bigger obstacles than that pansy.


He won't get them.



And our military wont be a part of trying to collect them.



270,000,000 firearms plus all the illegal ones? And those are just the currently owned ones.....never gonna happen.

My ex girlfriend was american.
She didn't even know you lost the Vietnam war.
History is what you teach and we don't have mass murders as often as you do. Still 270 000 000 armed ignorant people what do you expect ?
You haven't answered my question yet .
OK off to work and thaks for the laugh.

You must be brilliant.

Judge all Americans by one American idiot you banged?

And you never asked me a question.

And since you live in a monarchy, it's clear you don't understand how our government works.

Ps.....no one won the Vietnam war.
