Thanks for posting this.
Guns, guns, guns…
A very efficient killing machine. From its very conception in its various forms, guns are a blessing to the innocent who use them for protection and a curse to evil minded people who would control, and dictate how we are to live, how we are to think, how we are to worship and every other aspect of our lives. If one has doubts that evil does exist, Then look at history, look at Europe in the early 1900′s. Look at the lies of dictators. People elected these evil men to run their country. Let’s not follow in their footsteps. If you know the truth and ignore the lies, we will always be a free nation under God.
Does anyone remember when I said that crazy people will use anything to kill people but yet liberal trolls here said at least they can’t harm many people? Maybe they should tell the 14 people that just got stabbed. If only there was a weapon that can fire fast moving lead at a safe distance to kill crazy people with knife oh wait it is called a gun.
No one said you couldn’t harm people with another weapon, they just said you couldn’t kill as many people as you could with a gun. No one is dead from the knife attack. If it was a gun instead of a knife that would be different.
Nice try, Corran. You are a national treasure.
14 people is not a little number moron. maybe if you IQ was not at the same level maybe you would understand reality.
Those 14 people are dead??
“maybe if you iq”-corran horn
“You couldn’t kill as many people as you could with a gun.”
” If it was a gun instead of a knife that would be different. ”
Yes, yes. Because some dork on campus is automatically going to be more proficient with a powerful handgun.
You can tell those who’ve tried to hit a moving target with a firearm from those just talking out of their backside.
Did I say kill moron? What now you can’t read? Gee notice how he tries to change the subject.
I am a staunch 2nd Amendment defender. I believe Americans should have to right to purchase any gun, including an AR-15. But I think this infograph may be misleading. While it does point out the small fraction of times a rifle is used in a homicide, there are no statistics on handgun usage.
Now, before anyone starts to come after me, I understand an infograph can only contain a limited amount of information. But at the same time, I think it is best to try and give a full picture of all the facts, and I’m curious how handgun stats rank among those listed here.
Handguns would be at the top of the list. I would like to see statistics on legally owned handguns vs those used by folks not legally allowed to have one. It would probably play out to be slightly above knives. The places where handgun death murder rate are the highest are those where enforcement of current law is the lowest (Chicago, DC, LA, Detroit, etc.)
