    No idea. Have never dealt with them and refuse to.

    O....M.....G.....!

    2 fatal shootings in less than 2 weeks?

    How horrible!

    You realise we have that here in about an hour right?

    Your straw man is poorly constructed and lacks stability and cohesiveness.

    How can you have any shooting with no guns?

    Gun control don't stop gun crimes. Just like the failure of background checks in the US. They do nothing to keep anybody from committing a crime with a firearm.

    Gun control programs do limit the number of shootings.

    Slow down there Tex, we all know nothing is perfect. They had two shootings in about two weeks.

    How many shootings were there here in the last two weeks?

    Well over 1,000.


    They're at about 0.02% of our gun homicide rate.

    I'd say their gun control measures are working pretty damn well.

    Gun crime is going up...... that means criminals have guns in a country that banned and confiscated them... but keep pretending that increasing gun crime isn't a problem...
