Joe:

inadvertently, wingnut conservatives always do for their causes.

Just like when the wingnut conservatives rallied almost the entire country to support an unnecessary, immoral even, war in Iraq? Is that what you mean?

The rate of firearms-related murders in 2011 was 3.2 per 100,000 people a sharp decline from 1993 when the rate of firearms-related murders was 6.6 per 100,000 people.

To use your parlance Joe, it's inevitable that reasonable people will look for reasonable ways to further accelerate the rate of decline in our gun homicide rate without outlawing guns and without repealing the 2nd amendment.

chaps, stop bringing the UK into it. Maybe Canada is a better choice for comparison.

Look up the frequency of road rage incidents where people use vehicles as weapons, even on pedestrians or people in their own yards.

Hold on for the strawman sleigh ride! weeeee


Maybe Canada is a better choice for comparison.

Doesn't have the population density. Violent crime and population density are correlated. Which is why UK having 3x the population density (and, as expected, 3x the violent crime rate) but 1/3 the gun deaths says it all.

Joe Hedge stated:
And the NRA is right - gun control laws don't work, they're instituted state-by-state, which means nothing.

really, Joe?

then explain to me WHY Alaska has THE loosest gun laws and THE highest gun death rate

and Massachusetts has THE toughest gun laws and THE lowest gun death rate


explain how "gun laws don't work", Joe, when confronted with directly 100% contradictory evidence that proves you WRONG

That's an interesting graph and you make a good point. It's much more effective than frothing at the mouth.

Still, outlawing guns and and repealing the 2nd amendment is politically not feasible or realistic in this country. Better for reasonable realistic people to come up with reasonable and realistic solutions.

Guns will NEVER be outlawed in this country. Ever.

Dunno. Right now I'm off to sushi though. I'll debate later if you like. Other wise happy frothing.

What's the per capita gun ownership rate in those states? Any chance it correlates with higher/lower gun deaths?

you just defeated your own contention, Joe, not even a good try

think about it

the REASON for the direct correlation IS BECAUSE the stricter and looser gun laws ARE IN PLACE

Jesus, Joe

you are getting irrational, unreasonable, and blindly insistent in your "righteousness"

why if one did not know better one would take you for a "conservative"

Screw you guys. I'm going climbing tomorrow. Probably have a gun and/or a dog with me, like usual. Maybe a beer, maybe a sandwich. But I won't be here.

Having too much fun with new Quarks in lovely Ouray to debate with anyone. Strangely enough I don't know if I've ever gotten my balls groped in Montrose by the TSA on the way out. I can only hope.

Norton,
Alaska is a special case. Everybody has a powerful handgun or a riot gun and, combined with the suicide inducing winters, rates will be higher than Malibu.

true, Ron

however, even excluding Alaska from the correlations between gun laws and gun deaths,
the facts remain clear that the states with the most restrictive gun laws have few gun deaths, and the states with the most restrictive gun laws, like Mass, have the least deaths

but you already know this from your review of the wikipedia gun laws and deaths per states rankings of all 50 states

of course this has nothing to do with the current effort to find some reasonable ways to possible mitigate mass murder such as Aurora and Sandy Hook

I can't think of anyone who does not agree that it better to do something rather than nothing, as long as MY GUNS ARE NOT TAKEN AWAY

"After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia.

king fuking idiot!


In the five days following Hurricane Sandy, there were no homicides at all in New York City

Is that true? If so, very cool. I recall reports of civility for a couple days after, followed by assurances that it would get much, much worse as time went on. But I never heard of it getting much, much worse and the folks I know in NYC (photogs and educators) seemed pretty upbeat about it on the FB, considering.

The big Crossroads gun show now going on in Reno! It took an hour and a half to get in- as there were lines at 6:00 am and the doors didnt open until 9:00 am..

The line for wholesale ammo is an additional 2 hour wait in lines!!!!!!!!

Relieved to see NOT MUCH price gouging,, and many good deals on guns ammo and accessories!
