    11,000 folks are murdered in the USA every year. About 35 a day. School is about the safest place to be. An american child is 74 times more chance of being killed in a traffic accident than being murdered at school. Where's the outcry to prevent kids from travelling in cars?

    No, I don't like hand guns and would like them to all disappear but 24/7 news channels grasp at straws to turn anything into a story to fill space...then the pundits and bloggers can spend countless hours pontificating.

    Banning guns won't solve the problem...it'll make things worse...so bad that everyone will become defenseless to those who illegally obtain guns, also there's too many guns in circulation, it won't work

    You think Americans have only handguns? We're much better armed than that. Don't you remember that shootout the police were involved in in LA? The police had to go to a gun shop (one open to the public) to get better guns because the criminals had them way outgunned! As I recall, the criminals even had body armor!

    How? If you request that all guns be turned in to a government agency, do you think the criminals would obey that law? ...when they don't obey any of the other laws of the land?

    So ....how do you get rid of the guns?

    It is interesting that I receive a publication that has documented and researched stories about 20 ever month, of thousands of incidents, about the use of guns by civilians to stop criminals and murders in the commission of their crimes, and save lives of innocent victims from the scum sucking low life criminals who don't give a rats ass about you or your life, there are even documented stories of Individuals who have stopped school shooting sprees because they had fire arms and had the ability do confront and stop the individual who was killing the unarmed students.

    Now lets compare this state by state, most of our states are the size and population of Countries, or lets look at Africa as a total and see how many people die from fire arms, a lot of murders around the world are covered up by placing them in the causalities of war column, civil war, terrorism, or they just disappear into the State's tender mercies.

    How many thousands disappear into the Irainian Security Organs?, to never see the light of day, China? Russia? India? Syria?

    That's a socialism vs capitalism issue.

    More poor = more crime. More crime = more f'd up shit, regardless of tool used. Brits love their knives.

    Take our numerous highly populated cities filled with the poor, and see how you'd be unable to control them with our capitalist rich vs poor system. Those cities account for most of the crimes in America and most of those cities already have crazy gun control laws, yet the crimes still happen. Outside of those hellholes, we do just fine with our guns, in cities and states where guns aren't banned. You can't get any worse than outright gun bans, yet the crime still happens, so it's another issue at hand, which is the problem when it comes to most countries: poor people just fighting for survival.
