Here it is but it won't matter. You'll ridicule the source, then comes me and the usual, "I don't care anyway".

An opinion piece is not evidence of anything.

If no crime happens in the woods, does it make a sound? What do you report to law enforcement if no crime occurred?


Considering the legal consequences of using a gun for self defense, if no one is injured and the criminals simply runs away, there is no incentive for the victim to report the crime........with left wing prosecutors just waiting to jam up law abiding gun owners, telling the police you drew your weapon to stop an attack could get you arrested for any number of offenses.......which you may or not beat in court.

Is our murder and violent crime rate higher or lower than much of Western Europe.
Murder rate in USA is higher then in West European Nations.

Wrong...the murder rate in democrat party controlled cities is higher than Eurpean nations...while in the rest of the United States our murder rate is lower or the same...........and we still have guns to stop rapes, beatings, stabbings, robberies and murders, something Europeans just have to endure....

Surely you can tap a few keys and read some statistics. That old "prove it" cliche doesn't cut it anymore.
You're basically calling him a liar before you even checked it.

I notice you didn't show me that link I missed.

:rolleyes:

The people who have them are killing each other off. A person without a gun is 8 timesless likely to be injured or killed by one. Good luck to all your gun owners out there, you're going to need it.
Where do you get that stupid stat from?...lol

Murder AND violent crime. I also did not notice your working links to reliable sources supporting your allegations.

The state always wants a monopoly on force.

Stann When you make statistical claims like this in your opening post on a new thread you need to provide a source for it or we will typically close them. It's in the rules. Please update your opening post.

And as you can see, Taz, no update nor data or even recognition of your request has ever been forthcoming because the OP is full of it and his claims pure fiction. One is NOT 8X more likely to be shot and killed just because you OWN a gun! Worse, the OP title is incendiary in effectively saying that the one good thing about guns is that all gun owners eventually shoot each other killing each other off!

Look at you, deriving pleasure from the deaths of others, people with whom you disagree. Well, technically I would say you're deriving pleasure from the deaths of criminals. Because, as we all know, the vast majority of legal gun owners do not engage in wanton killing. But nice try...
