    You get your parents killing your children by drinking and smoking while pregnant and then taking them to a dysfunctional hospital for treatment, resulting in death: BBC News - Why the UK has a high child death rate

    At least this wasn't intentional, UK parents kill their children on purpose.

    [QUOTE=Jerry;1064277793]Ok:

    What has this to do with your massively higher gun crime statistics ?

    Australia had 11 gun massacres before 1996 and none after introducing much tougher gun legislation. Its tougher laws have been a great success

    When will the US learn from Australia? Stricter gun control laws save lives | Rebecca Peters | Comment is free | The Guardian

    This is a pro gun lobby site

    Your 2009 link is well out of date

    BBC News - UK Peace Index highlights rate of fall in violent crime

    The Daily Mail ! LOL

    Crime at lowest level for 30 years | UK news | The Guardian

    What have any of your other ancient links got to do with firearms? We had 96 gun homicides in 2000 but had only 39 in 2013 (latest figures available) that pretty much says it all. Legislation clearly works

    That question tells me you didn't watch the video, because if you did, you would know the answer to your question.

    And that tells me you don't digest links, which means you aren't here on this site to debate, just complain.

    As ever the guy blamed the symptoms rather than the problem. So What ? Do you think deprived inner city areas are unique to the US ?

    True, you are the guy who blames the symptoms for the problem. The root cause of crime is personal economy and family integrity. Gun control improves neither, and so therefore gun control is not a real answer for anything.

    Please cite where I have done so ? The problem in the US is casual unrestricted access to firearms and that is not a symptom

    The plethora of links I've already posted all through this thread tell a very different story if you can do math

    Still seeing if there will be an apology or at least an admission that Threegoofs misread and misunderstood. He had to go thru it onerously with Capt Courtesy...I think I deserve the same "courtesy." (Silly idea on the Internet, I know)

    Meaning training is not useful if you don't.

    Not. Useful.

    Of course, this is based on fairly dubious data, since it's pretty tough to control for all the variables. But the common sense argument is that when one gets a gun, basic safety training should be at least SOMEWHAT useful. It's common sense.

    Hey- why don't you bring up 'crime' again, since you seem to love that red herring a lot?

    I said that 'mandatory/mandated training has not been shown to make any difference over voluntary training. Again, you cannot process words properly as your exchange with Capt Courtesy also showed.

    You seem to be unable to differentiate between mandatory and voluntary. Do you need a dictionary?

    But anyway, you now lie or are seriously mistaken. Please post where I said training was not useful?

    Do you have any idea what's in a CCW class? it's about the law, it's not a gun safey course.

    Looks like British parents have resorted to other ways to kill their children, like burning them alive.
