    Americans use their legal guns 1.1 million times a year to save lives.....and as more Americans over the last 26 years have owned and carried guns...our accidental gun death rate has gone down, not up........lives saved, tragedies stopped........

    600 million guns in private hands, likely more......320 million people ......

    Accidental gun deaths? 486

    Accidental car deaths? 38,659

    2017 accidental gun death.....486

    Guns....486

    Cars....38,659

    If guns made you safer the whole world would have them.
    They don't make you safer, they make you more likely to get shot.

    Only cretins would argue otherwise.

    Considering your tiny island is protected by American guns, you statements about the truths of life are pretty funny......

    And again....

    Explain how it is that as more Americans own and carry guns, our gun murder rate went down 49%.......you refuse to answer that

    Explain how it is that as more Americans own and carry guns our gun crime rate went down 75%.....you refuse to answer that......

    Facts show that you don't understand the issue....your own island shows this as well, since your gun murder rate was low before you banned guns, and spiked after you banned guns...then returned to the same level as before....showing that law abiding people with guns did not drive your gun crime rate.....

    You have no idea what you are talking about...

    Over the last 26 years, 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 17.25 million people carrying guns for self defense in 2018...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.

    My guns keep me safe and I, like many others, aren't afraid to use them.

    Thank God for the 2nd.

    The whole world has guns.....when only the government in a country has them, the odds that the government will fill mass graves with the bodies of unarmed people is much higher....

    Remember, this is what happens when you're stupid enough to listen to the Communists
