As I am on my knees thanking the men....maybe I should thank the women who have also fought for this country. You also win the prize of responding with the most disgusting thing ever said to me on backpage since 2006...way to go Soldier...your a true gentleman!! I already feel safer!!
Disgusting? Ya see your mind is in the gutter... many people get on their knees to thank, has nothing to do with what you are talking about, but when you drag this into a "man" thing and top it off with "no women do this" you obviously are not adding to the discussion by mentioning a solution to gun control...

As far as you being offended? lol Do you think I really care what you think? this is a discussion forum, no one pointed out it was in irresponsible mother who let her weapons left unsecure in the first place, but then most here are having a good discussion and not pointing out SILLY shit like that....

Estimates of the effect on firearm homicides are less precise but point estimates suggest that the firearm homicide rate also dropped by a substantial proportion.

"Ozanne-Smith et al. (2004) examine the effects of firearms legislation in Australia on overall firearm deaths, ........
.......... They conclude that tighter gun controls led to a substantial reduction in firearm related deaths overall and in firearm suicides in particular."


"In the decade following the NFA, there has been a substantial drop in firearm deaths in Australia. Firearm suicides dropped from 2.2 per 100,000 people in 1995 to 0.8 per 100,000 in 2006. Firearm homicides have dropped from 0.37 per 100,000 people in 1995 to 0.15 per 100,000 people in 2006. These are drops of 65% and 59%, respectively."

"Firearm deaths—both homicide and suicide—are currently at exceptionally low levels by historical standards."

So the video I provided about Australia's experience with civil disarmament provided absolutely zero facts?

All the facts rarely figure into "truth". One group will studies a set of facts and ignore the ones that do not agree with what they want them to prove. It is part of the human condition.

I'll go with the peer reviewed university study rather than a youtube video thanks.

That has got to be the most asinine statement I have heard in a long time! Wait, no... NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre spoke today, so....

The idea that gun ownership is the "primary" reason that Americans don't face private property confiscation is way beyond stupid.

And Merry Christmas to you too.
I have been on the edge of my seat waiting for you to offer your usual insightful comments because I care.
