My very first post was to question the insanity of gun deaths in the US.Agreed! But how many times does someone need to bang their head against a brick wall whilst getting nothing but criticism before they realise its futile and give up the ghost?I dont think he does it for our benefit. He is trying to convince an American audience that having guns makes them safer. He doesnt really believe that either,its just his current talking point.There are up to 1000 accidental deaths per year through firearms in the US.Meanwhile in "Elyria".Man shot in gun free Britain...

It doesnt look like gun ownership kept this family safe. please explain how this mass shooting could happen in a country where everyone is armed ? It doesnt make sense.
Hmmmmm....family murder.....happens in Britain quite a little bit.......but, don't you guys have all the gun control you want?
In the last three months, three fathers have killed their partners, children and themselves - but what drives men to take such drastic action? Radio 4's File on 4 investigates.
"He walked out of the house, took a shotgun from the car, picked our family out and shot them."
Within a matter of minutes taxi driverMichael Atherton killed his partner Susan McGoldrick, her sister and her niece - before finally turning the gun on himself.
For Susan's family it was a loss from which they will never recover. But this family is not alone.
The tragedy was one of three so-called "family annihilations" in as many weeks - and there are around five such incidents per year in England and Wales.There's this notion that if they feel they can't carry on in this world they're not going to leave other people behindDr Marilyn Gregory, Sheffield University
In the last two months four fathers have killed their families and then themselves - but what leads men to take such action and is enough being done to understand the causes, asks File on 4 reporter Jane Deith.www.bbc.com
Ban guns and those lives would be saved.
Apart from the 33,500 deaths from firearms each year, there are also 75,000 injuries attributed to firearms.
Time to give it up cowboy, you are never going to convince the British public that guns save lives because the statistics prove the opposite.
Must say I have to give you credit for effort, but maybe your zeal would be better rewarded by promoting something positive that the US has to offer us in Britain cos your gun thing aint never going to fly.
Bottom line is his guns are his only friends and he wants to keep them.
This guy is evidently just going to keep on banging!
Though I've stated the stats before on this thread, I'll do so again. You need to forget whether your gun crime has reduced, even if what you say is true which I very much doubt its irrelevant
and suspect if the figures are falling its because you are running out of people intent on killing each other cos they are succeeding.
Gun related deaths per 100,000 population.
With a population of 333546000 in the USA. That works out at 40,000 gun deaths per annum.
Coronavirus deaths in comparison work out at 98,000,- true that is more than twice as many, but gun deaths happen every year. Considering the lengths gone to, to stop Corona, isn't it time a total ban on guns was taken to bring the USA in line with what we consider to be a civilized society.
