    And I think everyone favors finding ways to avoid all of those things. *shrug*

    Is there anything on that list above guns we don't actively try to prevent?

    For everything on that list, we disregard failed methods in favor of those methods which work...until it comes to assult, then people like you insist we keep doing the same things which have always failed every time they've been tried before. It's as though you want to treat heart disease with leaches instead of modern medicine.

    We've don the whole gun-control thing many times before. It makes the problem worse every time we try it. Every other country on the planet experiences the same result. Honestly talking to anti-gun is like trying to convince a creationist the world really is older than 7,000 years. Your faith blinds you from the facts.

    you are making stuff up.

    In the 18 years before the gun law reforms, there were 13 mass shootings in Australia, and none in the 10.5 years afterwards. Declines in firearm-related deaths before the law reforms accelerated after the reforms for total firearm deaths (p = 0.04), firearm suicides (p = 0.007) and firearm homicides (p = 0.15), but not for the smallest category of unintentional firearm deaths, which increased. No evidence of substitution effect for suicides or homicides was observed. The rates per 100,000 of total firearm deaths, firearm homicides and firearm suicides all at least doubled their existing rates of decline after the revised gun laws.

    perhaps the problem isn't guns ... perhaps the problem is that americans are more prone to violence ... 5.22 murders per 100,000 compared to 1.23 ....

    There is no doubt that certain segments of our society are more prone to violence, but the bottom line is that bad people are going to do bad things.

    If the gun bill passes and it becomes illegal to open carry in a mv, then we'll see violent crime become rampant on the highways. Carjackings are going to become the crime de jour.

    It's not all Americans, it's Americans in cities with populations greater than 250,000. America happens to have more of those size cities.

    simplistic. but if that is so, society CAN reduce the harm they can do by restricting access to weapons that are designed for war zones.
