You all don't appear to be familiar with real life.

Well obviously they need to be homeless and surround themselves only by eunichs. CWG's offering.

 

More workable, real world solutions from G5.

the point is, everything else being equal, a woman is six times more likely to die from spousal abuse in a house with a gun than not.

 

For your seemingly clever little ideas to make sense, women would also have to ban their husbands or kill them first at a rate 6 times more than women with no guns in the house, which is a little more problematic than the actual common sense solution.

And maybe you could extrapolate from your awesome conclusions that men in houses with guns are 6 times more dickish.

Only thing that can be concluded from this thread is that you are a bigger idiot and asshole than originally thought....

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.

:sleep:

I question the Validity of a poll/survey/w.e that says the State of NC has "worse" gun violence than the State of California.

They are just twisting words around so that the data will fit their argument. 

 

Anyone who truly believes that North Carolina or South Carolina has a worse gun problem than California or Illinois are dumb enough to believe anything else that suports their beliefs.

 

The truth is that the states with the highest per-capita gun ownership are most often the states with the least crime, both violent and non violent.

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."
