Gun Laws and Gun Violence

Still love how you want to continue blaming the gun and not the asshole with the gun.

 

How about stronger laws on abuse?  That is the better solution.

 

You seem to have no knowledge of the nature of the problem or the laws already on the books, which is about right.

 

It's the asshole with the gun thats 6 times more likely to kill then just the asshole. It's about as easy as it gets here.

Me neither

For example a study in The Journal of Trauma (36:4

pp516-524) looked at all injury admissions to a Seattle hospital over

a six year period. The mortality rate for gunshot wounds was 22%

while that for stab wounds was 4%. Even among patients that survived,

gunshot wounds were more serious — the mean cost of treatment for

these patients was more than twice that for stab wounds.

This isn't about "can knives kill people?!" it's "guns are more dangerous than knives when it comes to mortality."

you don't say!

If you notice what I quoted, it was in response to a "mass stabbings = nobody dies" argument.

Where did he say there are no fatalities in mass knifings?  His first point was on the stupidity of the ban knives argument and the second was that on the same day of Newton there was a mass knife attack where nobody died, but nobody talks about the lack of deaths, just that there were mass attacks. 

 

Perhaps Im giving him too much credit, but I didn't think he was dumb enough to assume nobody ever died while being knifed.

I don't want to say that mass knifings are common in China, but they do happen.

CWG used the exception (zero fatalities) rather than the rule to make a point.

Guy with a drinking problem is 6X more likely to kill someone while driving a car.....you DON'T ban the car or ban alcohol.  You punish the asshole and put him in jail.

 

Same logic applies here.....but you are too brain dead to see or admit it.

Well you do kind of ban the car when you impound it after he gets a few DUIs

 

Do you think we should take guns away from people if they get charged with domestic violence?

If he lost his license from DUI he is breaking the law. Hmmm yes let's make any man convicted of a violent crime be barred by law from owning a gn. Great idea dude. Now well need to have a way to check, like maybe a background check or something.

I want to see this. 

Comic genius I'm sure.

 

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, noting that Vice President Joe Biden reportedly plans to revive a legislative push for gun control,  challenged him to a debate about policy responses to gun violence.

“I would like to invite the vice president to engage in an hour-long conversation and debate, ‘How do we stop crime’,” Cruz said at the National Rifle Association Leadership Forum today. “If Vice President Biden really believes that the facts are on his side ... then I would think he would welcome the opportunity to talk about the sources, the causes of violent crime, who is carrying it out, and how we can do everything humanly possible to stop it.”
