    Exactly what does that have to do with our laws? It's a different country. You're trying a little too hard goober.

    So I guess you can't see that the point being made is that gun laws do not lessen gun crime

    I generally don't concern myself with foreign murder rates unless they relate to the subject being discussed.

    So then I guess you know that our murder rate is virtually what it was in 1950 putting it at a 120 year low

    Yeah....I know where Britain is.......

    You might want to stop taking the "Stupid" pills..they aren't helping you.

    Britain banned guns....their gun crime rate went up 89% in 10 years, and went up another 23% last year, with a 42% increase in London, their capitol city, all by itself...

    We own and carry more guns...and our gun murder rate went down 49%....our gun crime rate went down 75%...our violent crime rate went down 72%...

    You asshats want to do what Britain did.....you are morons.

    I know there are 58 dead and hundreds injured, and those numbers wouldn't be nearly that high if the NRA didn't own our politicians, and if we got rid of high capacity magazines and bump stocks.

    you know that the spiel is more gun laws, more gun control equals less crime less murder so when someone shows you evidence to the contrary you dismiss it because it's another country?

    That's fine with me

    So what do you say about our murder rate and it's 120 year low?

    yes...there is a lot of gun crime in Britain...an island that banned and confiscated guns to keep their people safe from gun crime....

    in the 10 years after the ban, gun crime went up 89%.....went up 23% last year.....and the shooters are getting younger .....
