Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Responsible gun owners are about as common as good Christians, good drivers and knowledgeable computer owners.


You are a pretty bad troll.  Consistent but poor at the craft.

jaytkay: highendmighty: jaytkay: Isolated incident, just like the two or three hundred other isolated incidents happening every day in the US.

Are you sure these figures are correct?  I used to teach hyperbole in school, and this sounds an awful lot like it.

If you honestly wanted to know, you would look it up. Now what have we learned about your honesty, today?

Anyone? Class?


OK.  I just looked it up.
I could find no mention of 200-300 reckless negligent discharges per day on the ENTIRE internet (and I used both Google and Bing.)  Usually, I am willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt if I'd consider what they said "reasonable", but I will not take your statement as an ad ignorantium argument - meaning I can, and certainly do, agree that something can be true even if immediate proof is not presented to me.  Your statement is so absurd, however, that you must present me with the facts this time.

Out of 314 million people, it's almost like there is a group out their trying to blow these incidents out of proportion.

Your argument is not supported by evidence: why, for example, are news stories of firearm owners who behave responsibly and cause no damage not more common than are reports of such incidents?


Two very legitimate reasons.

1. What normally happens (the astronomically overwhelming majority of gun owners behave responsibly) isn't newsworthy.

2. That kind of story doesn't fit the agenda of the media, most of which aren't even knowledgeable enough about firearms to properly describe their form or function.

Ever seen a headline about an "accidental discharge" hitting a dog, a TV, a refrigerator or nothing at all?
Probably never happens, right?


I have never observed a headline relating to a firearm owner who did not behave recklessly and thus caused no harm at all. Therefore, firearm owners are never responsible.

Well, if you add enough qualifications to the questions of course you can get the number down where you want it.

How many people are shot each year in the US?


My only qualification is the relevance to the story of tfa - that is all.  You equated the circumstance of the article, as far as I can tell, to every incident of a discharged weapon, be it from suicide, homicide, accidental discharge, practice at a firing range? etc. <-- the last one was snark, sorry.
This story was about one person, who recklessly (or accidentally) discharged his firearm, injuring someone; you claimed it happens 200-300 times per day.  I was just saying, I thought that's an exaggeration.

We learned that he was being honest implying that your post was full of hyperbole.

Here we see those conservative "values" we hear so much about. You're OK with 10 or 12 people getting shot every hour, but you are offended that someone mentions it.

Bad: Coworker of mine died in 2002 from a douche who shot thru the floor of his apt. while he was showing off his pistol to his kids. Hit her in the head and she died where she sat... she was a single mom of a developmentally disabled son, he came out of the shower and found her that way.
Fark: more of her coworkers showed up at her funeral than family.

/Sorry, I just don't have the heart to joke about this one. You guys give it the Full Monty for me.
