Our gun manufacturers make a nice profit, enabling them to stay in business
(or at least keep the price down). Wholesalers, gun stores, and others in
the supply chain make a living. The guns end up in the hands of (recently)
Mexican drug gangs who use them to kill each other.
Where's the bad?
anyone who owns a firearm should have a trigger lock or in a gun safe
at all times, unless its in the active possesion of the owner.
just passing a law 5 years in the slammer for having a unsecured
weapon would save many lives
what a load of crap.
well-to-do neighborhoods also suffer home invasions.
A 50yr old woman in the fancy Heathrow neighborhood of Seminole Co.,FL shot
and killed a stalker who crashed thru her patio door,-after- she was shot
twice by the stalker.
Can and SHOULD be taught. It might save their life.
You've never seen a gun so they couldn't possibly exist, right? I've never
seen an illegal gun in the US, either, but I'm quite sure they're all about.
I didn't say you lied about having seen a gun, BTW. You should take a
remedial reading course.
None of my friends...
I see you're up to your usual standards for an argument.
<hands over eyes>
More clueless arguments.
No one has *ever* been killed with a gun in the UK. Ever. Right?
...and no one has ever said Europeons were racist, either.
Sure you do. That's why you're here showing the world how stupid you are.
Maybe over exaggerating but there is some truth. If I was in another country
I'd be very puzzled by our foreign policy. Particularly after Vietnam and
Iraq. Actually, many Americans are also.
Should we shoot them? <g>
As a practical matter, no.
Some ancient wag once observed: "The penis is mightier than the sword," by
which he meant they can breed faster than you can kill them.
But on the other hand, most "fun" things are not really practical anyway...
You have certainly made a lot of mistakes. The first rule is never to
give the ragh... <snip>
My rule is to never use that term. Another is not to lump a group of people
into a category based on an article I read.
FBI's Uniform Crime Report shows a rate of 466 violent crimes per 100,000
population. The UK comes in at 2,034 violent crimes per 100k population.
Here's a fairly recent article.
Still, whethere the UK is provably wicked is really irrelevant. If you build
a matrix of gun laws - strict and lax - and homicides - many or few, there
are four combinations. Countries can be found inhabiting each corner of the
matrix. Both Jamaica and Mexico have strict gun laws and substantial gun
homicides. The U.S. has lax gun laws and plenty of gun homicides. Japan has
strict laws and virtually no gun deaths. Switzerland has lax laws and few
Guns and gun laws have little to nothing to do with gun deaths.
