    Nope, there is no additional risk of intentional gunshot wounds unless you are directly involved in criminal activity. The additional risk of accidents is not out of line compared to other hobbies

    Sorry you can kid yourself on as much as you like but a quick check of international comparisons show that the numbers don't lie

    Gun deaths is a meaningless number. It's a political invention.

    Deaths by firearm from accidents are low, a few hundred per year at the most, when compared 75 million gun owners versus 400 accidents, the rate of death is lower then most other hobbies, no problem there

    Suicide is the biggest chunk. Guns are simply a preferred method. International suicide statistics show no correlation between gun ownership and suicide rates
    Suicide rates are very similar between our two countries. 11.8 In UK and 12.5 in US. That's 60% of gun deaths really as suicides which is the same as suicides in UK. Gun control won't work there.

    Which leaves 11000 homicides. I'll break into that after I get off of work

    That's good Jerry.

    I hope they remove that restriction before those folks get drunk enough to drive their guns.

    You were already told that those statistics arent evenly applied across the US and affect almost totally criminals, gang members, and certain socio-economic areas. You just plod back in and pretend you never heard it, that they are not valid indicators of public safety in America at all.

    Your ignoring it wont make the truth go away. and several of us have posted the facts. No worries about your dishonesty, just see my signature below, in green.

    Stupid people do stupid stuff. As a gun owner if I ever have kids or when I have the younger members of my extended family over. I would secure my guns so they can't touch them. If Im OCing around them ( a good chunk of my family does) I have my guns in sepra retention holsters.

    Nuff said.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Mistakes happen. Typos are fixable. Dead toddlers aren't.

    Thanks for making my point better than I ever could have.
