    Japan has completely outlawed guns for all practical purposes for a long time. Banning assult rifles here, now, has essentially zero correlation to anything you can glean from Japan's statistics.

    It's just the guns.

    FYI, mass murders happened more frequently 1,000 years ago, when there was no such thing as a gun.
    Erod: curious about something. I agree with the 1000 years ago but lets go back 100 years or so when all of those bad things didn't exist (TV; movies; video games; etc; )

    Dated April 10, 1891, the article described an elderly man firing a shotgun at children playing in front of St. Mary's Parochial School in Newburgh, NY.

    "None of the children were killed, but several were well filled with lead," the report said...

    ...More than a century earlier, on July 26, 1764, a teacher and 10 students were shot dead by four Lenape American Indians in Greencastle, Pennsylvania, in what is considered the earliest known U.S. mass school shooting...

    ...Some of the earliest recorded cases include the 1893 killing with guns and swords of 11 people (including an infant) in Osaka, Japan, the 1914 shooting of 7 people in the Italian village of Camerata Cornello, not to mention the case of German spree killer Ernst August Wagner...
    Now I know that assault guns didn't exist, but you must admit that more people had firearms on them than today too.(officially or unofficially.) Where was the intervention? Discovery News

    Did the word "can" confuse you? Did you try and read more into what I said than was there?

    MAIG certainly wouldn't want to use crime statistics to make its case. Maryland's murder rate is third highest among the states﷓75 percent higher than Virginia's, 47 percent higher than Pennsylvania's, 46 percent higher than North Carolina's and 67 percent higher than West Virginia's. No rational person is going to believe that "weak" gun laws in those other states cause Maryland's crime problem, when they don't cause the same or worse within their own borders.

    As it turns out, there is no correlation between a state's crime rate and whether it has any of the 10 state﷓level gun laws the group advocates. In fact, murder rates average 70 percent higher in major U.S. cities where seven or more of the 10 MAIG﷓supported laws apply, than in cities where none of those laws are in force. And while BATFE considers firearm trafficking most likely to be indicated when a gun ends up in a criminal's hands within two years of its original sale, firearms traced by BATFE are 11 years old, on average.

    Only briefly noted by MAIG is that most traced guns (70 percent nationally) were originally sold in the same state where they're eventually traced, and that those originally sold in other states generally come from neighboring states, regardless of their laws. (For example, restrictive California is the largest source of guns traced to out﷓of﷓state sources by agencies in Oregon, Nevada and Arizona.) Finally, guns sold in the 10 states that MAIG says are most responsible for interstate gun trafficking, are actually only one﷓third as likely to end up being traced from other states.
    I didn't say nor imply that though. I may not have been clear though... I was trying to say that if a city makes a law and the rest of the country is different, that city is buried in laws contrary to them. And unless the manufacturers are in Chicago, those guns are being imported into Chicago from all it's surroundings.

    So, because YOU don't enjoy shooting rifles its okay?

    I don't like having homo-butt sex. So we should ban it, because I could sleep at night better knowing such unspeakable acts aren't being committed....

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    The fact that a shooting happened at Fort Hood doesn't have the meaning you think it does.
    I was in the service.. I am aware. I'm also aware of MP's and guarded gates. My point still stands that they don't all just run to completely unarmed kindergartens.

    Agreed. But they can still do enoumous damage with a couple of Glocks.

    Well the issue lately has been high capicity clips... I think that would be pretty much all of the latest ones.
    Takes one second to change clips. Magazine size is a political red-herring. Not the only one, btw.


    Society isn't in decay. Things weren't better when you were a child.
    There were far less school-shootings per capita.

    A few other differences as well ..............

    And DC. There is always an excuse when facts don't fit the agenda. It's against the law to grow dope in the US. We therefore. import it from Mexico.

    Rifle? Is tha your euphemism for 'gun that can release a ****load of bullets between nanoseconds'? Why would such a gun be needed besides wanting to turn your deer into Swiss cheese?

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes.
