So the CDC is freaking psychic now? It's not even 2013 yet. The fear Mongers are working overtime on this one. The funny thing is the people spouting this nonsense are the same people that are pro-population control through abortions. Freaking cowardly idiots.

I do seem to recall that there was a huge pile up on the I-6 just about the same time that the Battle of Antietam was going on.

To be fair, this is also a reflection of the trend to safer cars as the older unsafe ones age off the roads. Cars are getting safer to the point that "insurance adjuster" is a job that is in decline.

It's not the first time ever; I'm sure this was the case before cars were invented as well.  But there is also more here than just "gun violence will destroy us all"... but I'm pretty sure we'll hear what they are.

Cars have not yet reached a point that they avoid collisions by themselves. I'm related to an adjuster and believe me, there is no shortage of work. People wreck their cars only ever so slightly less often than before, it's just that they are much more likely to live through it these days.

Something tells me that more people died of gunshot wounds than automobile accidents back in the 1800s.
 
2012-12-20 01:00:26 PM
Hundreds of thousands of people died in the US during the Civil War. Not a single person died in a car accident that year.

YOU LIE, OBAMA.

Please help me, I'm so confused.

Is the answer tax cuts for the rich or more guns?

FTFA: "Every day, 85 Americans are shot dead, about 53 of them in suicides."
 
So are we to assume that of the 53 people that off themselves, some would not find another means if a gun was not available?

Undoubtedly, the more federal authorities continue to focus on only dismantling the upper echelon of gang structures, the more post-arrest turf wars you'll have. One has to look no further than Chicago for an excellent example at one gang becoming many due to taskforce arrests, and violence increasing as all of those new gangs fight for territory.
 
2012-12-20 01:02:37 PM
Considering that the total number of individuals killed by firearms is about static (even as our population grows) and the total number of individuals killed by cars is dramatically decreasing (even as our population grows), how in the world is this sad? This is very, very good news.

According to Bloomberg, this is less than gun fatalities.

Given falling rates of homicide and unintended fatal firearm injuries, the obvious solution is attempting to prevent suicide.

Alternatively, the nation could ban assault weapons and not avert the problem at all.

Filter the "gun deaths" for suicides, and you lose more than half of them.

Filter the remainder for gangs and drug dealers, and you lose 75% more.

Then compare that number to the number of collisions, including both those that result in deaths AND those that result in hospitalizations, amputations and disabilities, which is what you get when you have safer cars being driven on the same sh*tty road system.

The comparison starts to fall apart.

wrong! Wrong! WRONG!

Obama has a time machine. He used it to take Van Diesel's son back to the Civil War and ended up killing a bunch of slaves while drifting though Antietam. What did you think all that 'Fast & Furious' talk on Fox was all about? It also proves that Obama is black hating racist for killing those slaves.
 
2012-12-20 01:07:28 PM
Show me the relevant stats.

Exclude the people who are involved in the drug trade.
Exclude suicides.
Exclude domestic violence incidents where one of the participants has either a violent criminal record or the police have been previously called to the residence more than once.

This statistic is as bullshiat as the "drunk" driving statistic where they count the incident as "alcohol related" if a sober driver hits a drunk pedestrian or if the diver is sober but the passenger is intoxicated.
