    Awwww...look how cute you are. Yes...I am going to use suicide rates in non-gun states just as readily as anti-gun people look to Japan as their 'model'. of success.

    Why are you trying to change the subject?
    Always the same with you. Dood wants to talk overall murder rates, I say fine...lets DO talk overall murder rates and REAL solutions, not just the mindless I hate guns lets ban guns rhtetorc....and to you that is changing the subject.

    Gotcha. So its just more typical bull**** rhetoric from you then? You really really really really really really REALLY care...as long as you dont have to actually address the real problems and can just target legal gun ownership.

    Do those countries have the same type of drug problems we have? Gang problems we have? The VAST majority of violent crimes in this country occurs within certain demographics. You want answers...look there. Oh wait...thats right...you arent really willing to address the actual problems.

    Your own words indict you. Of course...I'll allow for the possibility I could be mistaken. All you have to do then is point to your offerings of a 'solution' that actually addresses the violent crime and who is committing them and not one that merely targets law abiding citizens and legal gun ownership.

    Really, how do you know who's carrying?

    Strange since the primary part about concealed carry is the concealed part.

    Thank you. At least someone can see past partisan politics and admit that maybe this guy wasn't right just because he had a gun. He may have been within his rights to be armed, but he was not within his rights to shoot someone else.
