Sometimes it isnt good to be the world leader. American children aged 14 and younger are 16 times more likely to be killed by firearms than are children in 25 other industrialized nations averaged together, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even when the focus shifts from gun-related deaths to all homicides, the U.S. still makes a poor showing. The murder rate for American kids under age 14 is five times the average rate for the other countries.
As I demonstrated there were less than 20 on average per year. So are you saying there are 6 in other developing countries?
Oh wait, your moving goal posts now from accidental shootings to gangs and violence...... Most of those shootings are in the most restrictive areas when it comes to gun control. Perhaps we should let the good guys arm themselves against these savages.... Without trigger locks.
The numbers stay bleak throughout the teen years and young adulthood. The risk that an American aged 15 to 19 will die from a firearm injury more than doubled between 1985 and 1994. Firearm injuries were the second-leading cause of death for people aged 10 to 24 in 1994. In 1995, 8 percent of American students reported carrying a firearm for fighting or self-defense at least once in the previous 30 days. Thats up from 4 percent in 1990.
yeah, I call bull**** on this. So I discount everything else in this paragraph unless you have any coorboratng evidence.
So, what about home invasions?
As to your question. You plan for what is likely. Send the kids to Grandmas, then wait for the gang to invade. You're article shows a progression. It wasn't random.
Better yet, get a couple of BIG DOGS, and let them come in.
Hoplophobic response. 2 big dogs will cost a person several thousands of dollars a year first off, 2nd does he have room and time to take care of these pets? Training. You are going to let a couple "guard dogs" have the run of the house without training?
Ignorane does not even begin to cover your thought proccess here boo.
