AverageAmericanGuy: Holloway Road sword attack - 1 victim

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting - 26 victims

I don't know how you can reconcile the fact that guns are far more lethal on a per-incident basis than any other weapon.


We prefer our attacks supersized, with cheese.

Man is killed by a crossbow bolt passing directly through his heart. The detectives arrive. One of them finds the fatal crossbow bolt lieing near the body. Donning gloves, one detective carefully picks up the bolt, and begins to examine it. A few seconds later he starts to laugh, quietly at first. But within seconds, he is roaring with laughter.The other detective is at a loss.

"What's so funny?"
The laughing cop can barely speak....
"Take.....take this....over to Ballistics...."

/Well, the lab techs at Forensic Sciences thought it was funny...

TheyCallMeC0WB0Y: KrispyKritter: ignorance is bliss, subby. folks in Britain can have firearms, they just use them for hunting animals as they are intended.

Except the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with hunting and EVERYTHING to do with a violent revolution to topple the government.

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.
Noah Webster

"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
George Mason
Co-author of the Second Amendment
during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms."
Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

If you're concerned with national security, how many American civilians has the US government killed compared to the collective likes of Adam Lanza or the Columbine killers?


76 men, women, and children were killed at Waco.  The Trail of Tears killed thousands.

OscarTamerz: Switzerland, where the government passes out Sig Sauer pistols and machine guns to the citizens, has a much lower murder rate than the UK with the UK murder rate being about 50% higher. So much for guns causing murders.


Japan, where the government doesn't hand out Sig Sauers and machine guns to the citizens, has a much lower murder rate than Switzerland, with the Swiss murder rate being more than 100% higher. So much for guns preventing murder.

British people love disarmed peoples.

They loved poorly armed Indians, Africans, Arabs, and Asians.

They did not enjoy the company of well armed Americans.

The only category we outdo anybody in are deaths(USA, USA, USA!). And the drug war spilling over from Mexico easily accounts for that, which is why the drug legalization movement is snowballing. Granted, the data is whopping THREE WHOLE YEARS OLD, so I'm sure there's been a miracle happen since and the UK really is the gunless utopia of legend. America is the more violent society. Absolutely. Totally. For sure and for realsie.

Of course, in that case the man could have had a gun as well, and shot her from a distance before she even knew that she was threatened. Then she would be dead instead of alive. And then he could have taken her gun off her dead body, slipped away, then gone on a two gun rampage.

See, I can make up scenarios too.


but then the goddamn Batman swoops in to stop him, but at the last minute Robin betrays him for slapping him too many times! Batman's uncontrolled flatulence causes some disconcern! Robin sabotages the Batmobile to lose a wheel, causing the Joker to escape!

And guns aren't going to do a damn thing about it. If a government is bent on killing its own civilians in mass numbers, there's fighter jets and nukes and mustard gas and submarines and aircraft carriers etc. etc. etc.


But it gives you a chance to at least fight. Look at Lybia...

I don't know how you can reconcile the fact that guns are far more lethal on a per-incident basis than any other weapon.

Yet neither the gun nor the sword committed these crimes.



Therefor, no one convicted of a DUI should have their driver's license suspended.

After all, the car didn't commit the crime.

Not "any" other weapon, but access to planes is well regulated.
