In future if I were you I'd stick to ad hom attacks ignoring or dismissing all contrarian responses and endlessly repeating yourself

And again avoid admitting that your crime is concentrated in certain areas, not all areas of the UK. You were asked a direct question and again...had to resort to denials instead of answering.
Again, you cant answer actual real life questions, all you can do is misinterpret statistics.
But you've repeated ad nauseam throughout this thread that your gun crime is concetrated in deprived inner city areas but now you are saying it isn't ? You can't have it both waysYou just say it's unsafe? It would be no different in a city or suburb.
Our women certainly don't indulge the paranoid fears you do, which is odd given all the way through this thread its been claimed the UK is that much more lawless than the USThe police dont magically appear.....women are attacked in their homes....in the UK and in the US.
I didn't offer you any suggestions because the exaggerated fear of this happening is I suspect one entirely of your own makingYou didnt offer any suggestions for me to protect myself against multiple attackers in my home at nite....why not?
No I merely present statistics. I'm more than happy to let you do any subsequent 'misinterpreting' of them a suits your agendaAgain, you cant answer actual real life questions, all you can do is misinterpret statistics.
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.
Clearly nobody wanted to read any of this but it at least has some relevence to the OP
The United States accounts for nearly 75 percent of all children murdered in the developed world. Children between the ages of 5 and 14 in the United States are 17 times more likely to be murdered by firearms than children in other industrialized nations.
Children from states where firearms are prevalent suffer from significantly higher rates of homicide, even after accounting for poverty, education, and urbanization.
A recent meta-analysis revealed that easy access to firearms doubled the risk of homicide and tripled the risk for suicide among all household members. Family violence is also much more likely to be lethal in homes where a firearm is present, placing children especially in danger.
Crucially, these deaths are not offset by defensive gun use. As one study found, for every time a gun is used legally in self-defense at home, there are “four unintentional shootings, seven criminal assaults or homicides, and 11 attempted or completed suicides.” A study of adolescents in California found that there were 13 times as many threatening as self-defensive uses of guns. Of the defensive encounters, many arose in confrontations that became hostile because of the presence of a firearm.
In terms of accidental fatalities, American children younger than 15 are nine times more likely to die by a gun accident than those in the rest of the developed world.
In the developed world, 87 percent of children younger than 14 killed by firearms live in the United States. More American children and teenagers died from gunfire in 2010—a single year—than U.S. troops in Afghanistan since 2001.
Gun deaths in children: Statistics show firearms endanger kids despite NRA safety programs.
Not a lot more to add there really
