OK
In England, they lost their guns. Crime went way up.
In Australia they gave up a lot of guns and had severe restrictions on the rest, Violent crime rate rose a MINIMUM of 20% in all categories.

In America: What happened?
Women and others could not vote. Now everyone, even the dead, vote & some more than once.
Prohibition was enacted. We now have more alcoholics then a country needs.
Drugs? Are they not in every home in America? Even Doctors got in the game.
Cigarettes? Still around but losing ground. Just got replaced by something else.
Stop gangs? Please!
Terrorists? The FBI supplied them all.

I just heard somewhere:
The Colorado shooter - Democrat.
The Conn. shooter - Democrat.
The Columbine shooters - their parents were Democrats.
The Fort Hood shooter - Democrat
Do Not Outlaw Democrats!
Then everyone would want to be one.

They can't even regulate their own prescription drugs. Let alone illegal drugs.Believing they could regulate guns is naive and cynical

Why is it that every time the topic of gun control comes up some guy or girl from another country comes in and condescendingly comes in and mocks everyone that is pro guns?

You got what you wanted in your country, what do you care what we are fighting for in America? The whole reason we chose to secede from The Great Britain was because your royal ilk wouldn't let us be, and here you are trying it again!

Some fools will never learn.....

Listen guy, you are referring to the very government that we are holding at bay from infringing on our God given rights, so your post holds absolutely no water.

I agree with Ron Pauls stance and wish he would have won the election. Go have a look at his foreign policy.

I'm from England, crime went up due to poverty due to lack of work, even random violent crime is related to this. It was nothing to do with guns being outlawed. Our society, far from being perfect, is a lot safer without guns, it's undeniable. There are isolated incidents of gun use, that's all.

Edit to add: I don't agree with guns in society but I also know it's too late to disarm America's people, guns are ingrained into everyday life over there which is why it seems normal to people. I suppose when it comes down to it it's not my business anyhow. I'm just glad we don't generally have guns over here.

If that video was intended to point out how prescription drugs are ruining kids these days, I'd say good find!! How guns are bad.....not so much.

The only problem I have with it is: A. In the U.S. gun crime is the highest where gun laws are the strictest. B. A gun ban would do nothing about the guns already there. As soon as you can "magic" the guns out of existence, and all knowledge of how to make them as well, then I'll be all for it. Until then, I'll keep my guns.

It is odd to me how everyone on here is concerned with the welfare of others when it concerns guns. More people die of starvation per day, something like 25,000. Can we not feed the citizens of the world? Or are firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens more important than the children starving everyday on this planet? I just don't understand some peoples priorities I suppose. Where is the outrage? Why are people more concerned with guns but not starvation?

2006 gun homicides 10,225. NICS background checks 10,036,824
2011 gun homicides 8,583. NICS background checks 16,454,951
16.1% decrease in homicides with a 64% increase in firearms.

Fact 323 Homicides with a rifle in 2011 of those 33 were ruled justifiable (FBI UCR). So a rifle, "assault or other" was involved in just 2.28% of all homicides. So what is the real reason for this push?

A foot in the door towards more draconian bans?

"In England, they lost their guns. Crime went way up."

Source? Because in reality, no, it didn't by any reckoning of the concept.

www.unodc.org...

I'm happy to live in gun-free UK where 5x less people per 100,000 are murdered compared to our barbaric and socially backward cousins, the United States.
