Why not try looking at how the death rate from guns has plummeted in somewhere like Australia following the public being disarmed.
I have not been on in a while, so I appologize for not responding to you sooner.

One point of this is America does not border Australia. America does border Mexico.

Default European

Guns are easily aquired in this country. So, this means that the nuts can readily and easily.

All of these statistics are meaningless without the mental health of the agressors being noted, or inner city youth being counted into this toal.

This reaction is complete European Liberalism

Yep, Plad really does fall into that trap that spawned several world wars. It is called enlightened idiocy.

You should change your handle to Captain Butthead.

You can make all the excuses about 'liberals' and scream 'the commies are coming' all you want but the facts show conclusively that America has an obsession and a problem with guns that the rest of the developed world does not have.

Let's see if you will answer a direct question

Do you think that if America had a gun ban along the lines of Europe or Australia, that the number of people killed by guns would be significantly reduced?

That's rich considering that it could be argued that the USA had a considerable hand in paving the way for WWII.

I'll answer your question with a question that is equally ridiculous.

Do you think if a total ban of food were put into place (and with politicians like Bloomberg that may happen) obesity would be significantly reduced?

Excellent! So although you can't actually bring yourself to say it, you do agree that a ban on guns would significantly reduce the number of deaths from guns.

Second question:
Now that you have conceded that a gun ban would significantly reduce the number of deaths from guns; do you think that would be a good thing or a bad thing?

In todays climate of Political Correctness where even kooks are to be overlooked, I don't think there would be a decrease in gun deaths. I don't think I deserve the butthead remark for disagreeing with you. You seem to be a bit of a bully
