Youth and Accidental Shootings:
Over 1,300 victims of unintentional shootings for the period 20052010 were under 25 years of age.

For kids ages 5 to 14, the mortality rate is 14 times higher in high gun
ownership states than low gun ownership states.
For infants and toddlers, ages 0 to 4, the mortality rate is 17 times higher in high gun ownership states than low gun ownership states.

The majority of people killed in firearm accidents are under age 24, and most of these young people are being shot by someone else, usually someone their own age. The shooter is typically a friend or family member, often an older brother.

So there.

Dal..Although I pefer a larger caliber of weapon the M1 carbine is easy to shoot and very accurate. I guess it depends on your level of marksmanship.

The Armed Citizen:
A man in his 20s died and at least three others were hospitalized after a shooting inside an engineering building on the campus of Seattle Pacific University on Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

A suspect was in custody. Seattle police had initially sought a second suspect, but later said the person in custody was the only shooter.

As many as five people were injured, according to the Seattle Fire Department. Harborview Medical Center said four victims had been brought to the hospital, including the young adult who died shortly after arrival.

Another school shooting. How long before these become "dog bites man" stories and they become relegated to the back pages?

Well, Ron, I'm sure that's a huge consolation for the parents of the kid that was murdered.

What's your opinion of this, really, alarming increase in school shootings?

Ron, is the proliferation of weapons part of that experiment?

I grew up with guns, also, Ron. I had a Savage .22 bolt action single shot as a kid.

I'll ask the question again, do you think the proliferation of weapons might be part of that experiment you wrote about?

I remember absolutely hating school... Couldn't stand it. But we didn't shoot the place up since we knew that would be suicidal and random murder wasn't high on the list. We had access to far more firepower then as kids. I had a friend who's dad collected machineguns. Real ones. Guns were often on the wall or in glass cabinets on display. Every vehicle in town had a firearm or two inside.

Families were broken then too. Parent's drank and beat their kids with no fear of DCYS then.

But there were no random killing rampages, at least nothing that made the news perhaps. Sure there were targeted murders but not this random insanity.

The only big difference I see is these drugs being pumped into people now for the simplest things. Therapy is hard, takes a long time, and is expensive. Pills are cheap, plentiful, and can have deadly behavioral side effects. So bad in fact, that they print the warnings on the black-box labels.

has actually led to a DECREASE in violent crimes over all.

Ron,

This doesn't seem to back you up:

Nor does this:

Nor does this:

Then there's this:


Is there an issue here, do you think, or is this just normal and to be expected?

Is rather live next to the 5 Taliban released than live next to Ron. I'm sure they have less weapons.

All this NRA propaganda is sickening.

Every time some f*#king idiot does something wrong with a gun i cringe a little and get really pissed, because the rest of us get the bloody finger pointed at us while being scolded as if we are somehow complacent and/or responsible for that small minority of once-legal owners who cant keep their sh#t straight, along with the criminals who never gave a sh#t about the legality of it from the start. Well f*#k them. And f*#k this guy too. And f*#k those who think i belong with that crowd simply for owning a gun. What a bunch of as#@&%es.

If you believe criminals and the mentally ill should continue have easy access to guns, you deserve to have that finger pointed at you. If you don't, please call your congressman, senator, state representatives and NRA rep and ask them to represent your views, not the views of an industry that has a business need for criminals and mentally ill to easily have guns.
