    Blacks are 12% of the population and commit 38% of the murders. Whites are 72% and commit 32%.

    I don't bring this up much because it comes across sounding racist to some people, but it is just the flat out truth: there's more than six times as much homicide committed by blacks, per capita for their ethnic demographic, when compared to whites, in America.

    Now, the reasons don't necessarily have anything to do with skin color... inner city poverty, gangs and drug dealing being the primary driving causes, exacerbated by a subculture that doesn't place enough value on education and conventional means of success... but there's no arguing that the vastly higher rate for that ethnic group is a fact....
    this leads us to two possible conclusions:

    1. poverty, drugs, and the legacy of centuries of slavery, segregation, and discrimination...has created an African-American sub-culture that is more prone to violence.

    2. (may God fogive me) three centuries of slavery in North American has unfortunately bred us a race of criminals.

    I pray, I truly pray, its the former.

    seriously.

    are you clueless about the war on drugs?


    ENgland banned handguns and the place is awash in illegal handguns

    Have you any clue about Mexican gun laws?

    laws that ban the manufacture & sale of handgun magazines above 10 rounds & rifle magazines above 20 rounds, don't depend upon criminals respecting the law.

    This is a silly strawman that you constantly repeat.

    OK for ****s and giggles, lets subtract the 38% of the black population from the US intentional firearms deaths.

    If we subtract 38% from the 32.5 intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 1 million people in the US, that leaves 20.15 intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 1 million people in the US. Comparing that to all the other wealthy nations and that still leaves the US at the top which mean that turtledudes statement:

    Turtledude - if you factor out inner city black drug crime driven homicides, America is really pretty safe.
    and your attempt to defend it have failed.

    its really stupid to think banning such things will provent criminals from obtaining them

    all that does is hassle honest people. and since there are more than a hundred million of those things around and given our police buy millions each year (and lose a bunch of them each year) the supply is pretty extensive

    if your yapping made sense, banning narcotics would have prevented addicts from abusing drugs

    tell me how that has worked out


    I know you won't answer this question but who is more likely to be affected by a magazine ban

    a) honest people who have no intent of shooting innocent people

    b) people plotting mass murders and doing stuff like rigging illegal bombs as booby traps etc?

    you forgot that many of those murders were not specified

    what we do know is that more than 50% of those doing time or on death row are black

    hispanics are listed as WHITE when they are the perpetrators btw

    do the math,

    hispanics are way overrepresented in murder convictions as well

    lots of illegals too

    6% of the population is making up more than half the people convicted of murder (Black females are rare in such cases so black males are responsible for over half the murders where there is a conviction)

    If for whatever reason we do get invaded I want my 30 round magazines. Sure it may not happen but there is nothing wrong with being prepared.

    As far as the we don't need it arguement, I don't need a Chevy Volt but I'm not out trying to get it outlawed.

    if they can't buy them in stores, and they can't buy them online, and they can't buy them in magazines.

    then it might be kinda hard for them to buy them.

    sure, they might try. or they might not.

    so I dismiss your babbling on this as contrary to reality
    Criminal misuse of guns is more pervasive that the need for civilians to have them. That's why 80% of the intentional gun deaths in wealthy countries occur in the US.
