    Support this argument.

    Be sure to explain how, if the availability of guns is the explanation for the relatively high number of murders, how it is the number of guns goes up every year, and yet the number of gun murders is about the same as it was 35 years ago.

    Then, also be sure to compare the number of guns and the number of gun murders in each country. The US has 1 gun-related murder for every 25,000 guns.

    THEN tell us how banning 'assault weapons' will have any significant effect on this.

    And THEN tell us how a ban on 'assault weapons' does not violate the Constitution.

    United Kingdom: 68
    Germany: 381
    Japan: 39
    United States: 11,127.

    My explanation is it's because the firearm community in America refuses to act responsibly in creating legislation to limit the availability of guns. What's your explanation?
    You know that over 56% of "murders" are suicides?
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    That is a good thing, they are servants of the people with no business knowing to what extent we exercise our rights.
    Imagine the data that would have to be gathered, and the resistance....
    Tyranny should always be resisted.
    A man must remember that NO rights are absolute, nor can they be...
    The right to own arms is absolute, that's the way the amendment was written, only their usage should be limited.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    So the majority of people with guns are suicidal

    That's the thing about this country... we don't infringe the rights the law abiding on the off chance that they might be a criminal.

    Its illegal for criminals to have guns. When they are found with a gun, they are charged with a crime and go to jail. That's as far as that can go, withought infringing the rights of the law abiding.

    A man must remember that NO rights are absolute, nor can they be...
    For the limits of the right to arms, methinks you should look to the limits on the right to free speech as a model.

    I don't support mass murder. Which is why I don't drink Kool-aid or practice a religion either.
