**Same fuging graph I have seen.**

I've seen that chart posted a few million times.

It doesn't answer my question.

It IMO provides skewed data with the framing of the information.

It's exactly what the lot of you have been saying

Guns are the reason murders are happening. Is this not what is being said? Get rid of guns and bad things won't happen ?

Bad things will still happen. The fallacy in your thinking is that you believe crime will remain a constant with less guns.

stricter gun regulations = less murders.

So you regard your opinion to be of higher consequence than the data.

But if CT has 'at least 1 Firearm Law Designed to Protect Children in Place', then how did this tragedy happen???

I do understand the need, but I'm simply not convinced the answer is as simple as added legislation...

I don't agree.

Not in this country at least.

People who follow laws don't murder people.

I guess I'm just a fuging idiot.

Because no law is perfect in it's scope and guns are still readily available there.

That doesn't change the fact that overall gun violence is found there at a lesser level overall.

Guys I'm sorry.

Your willingness to freely give away your rights absolutely terrifies me.

Del, Panthro, I've met you both and thing you are both pretty intelligent people, but your stances on this completely terrifies me.
