    Doofus.......here is Wisqars....the CDC...so you see a fucking problem with the data from that study...considering the final numbers for the actual CDC data?

    The actual Data from the CDC, Wisqars shows the study is lying....


    Leading Causes of Death | WISQARS | Injury Center | CDC


    Accidental gun deaths 2012.....548

    2013.....505

    2014......461

    Accidental gun deaths 2015.....489


    One.....safe storage laws do not decrease accidents. Two...gun ownership has not gone down, gun owners answering polls on gun ownership has gone down while minority and women gun ownership is going up...two groups that are growth areas for gun ownership....

    Doesn't matter.....we have guns, we will have accidents.....Americans use guns 1,500,000 times a year to stop violent criminals, the British violent crime rate is going up.....

    This shows that guns in the hands of Americans saved far more lives...but you don't care about lives saved, only bodies you can exploit....

    We went from 200 million guns in private hands in the 1990s and 4.7 million people carrying guns for self defense in 1997...to close to 400-600 million guns in private hands and over 16.3 million people carrying guns for self defense in 2017...guess what happened...


    -- gun murder down 49%

    --gun crime down 75%

    --violent crime down 72%

    Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware

    Compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49% lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72%) over two decades.

    Yeah....no....

    Critics see flaws
    But the paper is drawing criticism from some researchers. “This study of a single mass shooting and a single type of gun violence amounts to little more than a statistical anecdote,” wrote Gary Kleck, a criminologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee, to Science.

    “Notwithstanding its prestigious outlet, this paper is junk science, and should never have been published.”

    In particular, Kleck finds the statistical associations implausible. He notes that the 3 million additional guns sold between December 2012 and April 2013 amounted to an increase of about 1% in a private U.S. arsenal that already totals roughly 300 million guns.

    That it should lead to a 27% increase in accidental firearm deaths and a 64% increase among children is “astounding,” he wrote.

    Guns have been used 100 MILLION times to stop violent criminals in my lifetime but I don`t know of 1 single person who has done so. Not one. ZERO! Do you realize how idiotic your claim is?

    Yeah I know, and I told him. He had no response.

    58 dead, 500 injured. One shooting with the weapons that the crazies have a vast preference for. Five officers and two civilians shot in Denver last week. Yep, what we need is more guns on the street.
