Too bad that banning guns, does NOT in any stop the fact that innocent
people get killed.
On the other hand, banning guns, only makes innocent people less able to
defend themselves against the criminals..
But that's an issue that such as you conveniently ignore even though far
more people are victimized when they are made defenseless by such as you.
Well said and very true. If gun ownership were banned and criminals knew for
that every home was devoid of firearms .... every night would be time for
"Trick or Treat" !
They sure as hell wouldn't be afraid of your baseball bat because they would
Criminals don't care how many laws you pass against gun ownership. By
definition, breaking laws is what they do.
I wouldn't call it homicide, more like stupidity. If the dude didn't
shoot himself, he would have to live with it. Unless it was something
other than a stupid "accident", I think the D.A. should not become
"I don't like to discriminate against terrorists based on nationality.
If you declare war on the United States and you want to kill us,
It WAS a homicide (the killing of one human by the act or omission of
another). As to the TYPE of homicide, that's determined by the facts:
* The shooter intended to kill the victim = Murder
* The victim bragged that he porked the shooter's wife = manslaughter
* The shooter fired at a moving bush = Negligent
* The shooter merely retured fire = Justifiable
* The victim jumped from behind a tree wearing a deer costume = Excusable
It was always homicide. Homicide is not always murder. Homicide could be the
execution of a prisoner under a lawful warrant or the killing of an enemy
soldier in time of war. Homicide could be killing in self defense or via
drunk driving. Homicide could result from a mistake on the operating table.
"Homicide" is the killing of one human being by the act or omission of
another and is NOT, per se, a violation of law.
Harry K used improper message composition style by unnecessarily
Show me where I actually said that "the only way one can commit suicide
is from a gun".
You're the one with a reading comprehension problem, you dolt. And I
thought that english was your native language.
But since you brought it up, here - I'll rub your nose in this:
==========In the United States, firearms remain the most common method of suicide,
accounting for 53.7% of all suicides committed during 2003
So even if I DID claim that firearms was the MOST common or typical way
to commit suicide in the US - I'd be right.
And given that there are something like a handful of guns per US
household (just going by the raw numbers) it's a no brainer why guns are
the method of choice for suicide.
Now go and straighten up you nose and use some common sense before you
try to shoot me down.
Nice try at a diversion.
What were you trying to say here:
======== even my mentally challenged cousin knows better than that.
If that isin't a back-door way of calling me "mentally challenged" then
I invite your explanation.
I note that you did not rebutt the more pertinent aspects of my response
- an indication that you surrendered those points to me.
What diversion? You create a doesn't belong here post laughing about the
loss of human life and then add childish name calling to make yourself
look even sillier.
Seems you have some issues following the don't belong in this newsgroup
threads you keep on starting. Not sure where you got the snippet from

What is pertinent about inappropriate posts for this group? Maybe you
can have someone show you the numerous appropriate places you might go
