    According to UN Rape statistics, in the United States in 2010, the number of rapes was 84,767.

    Rape statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, in the United States in 2010, the number of homicides by firearms was 9,960.

    Must mean we need to ban penises. I mean, 84,767 rapes, compared to 9,960 homicides from firearms? Yeah...it's time to ban penises.

    Chemical castration should do the trick, Dick.

    By all means...prove it wrong...if you can. Otherwise, shat yer' trap. You're clearly incapable of accessing their original source...huh? Yep, stupid as I thought.

    Don't know. Why don't you enlighten us? And, how many of those rapes might have been prevented, had the perpetrator had a gun to his head?

    I call shenanigans. The stats don't differentiate between rape and rape-rape.

    Because one is conducted by members of the left's protected classes and is therefore okay.

    ...What? That may be one of the dumbest things you've ever said on here.

    And I guess one of the reasons to vote Republican is if you're pro-rape. At least that's what their politicians keep telling me.
