    Got one that shows how many gun owners are the victims vs non-gun owners?
    Got anything that shows how many of those countries had gun laws similar to ours during our history and then successfully changed them?
    Got anything that shows the actual number of guns in these countries vs the number that the government actually knows about?
    Got anything that shows the success rate against gun smuglers throughout the world?
    Coccaine, Marajuana, herion, and other drugs are illegal in the US and illegal to import, got any evidence of shortages of these drugs on the streets?
    Got any evidence that we have in anyway been successful of stopping the import of these drugs?
    How many guns do underaged gang-bangers have even though they cannot legally buy them?
    How many convicted felons currently have guns, considering that they are not allow to own them or purchase them?
    Why do we have the term "Axe Murderer" instead of "gun murderer"?
    What is the murder rate in all these countries using other weapons instead of guns?
    How many in America and World wide die each year from misuse of automobiles?
    Since more people die in cars than to gun violence, should we ban them also?
    If most car enthusiasts were republicans and if Road and Track normally endorsed Republicans and if the AAA gave most of its lobbying dollars to GOP candidates you can bet your last dollar he'd want to ban cars

    Since from his other post else, there is little doubt that is a true faitholder in the Al Gore church of envirimentalist, he probably wants to ban them anyways.

    But I don't think I can change his mind about anything, I am giving more and more data points that the silent audience here can look up to make their choices.
    Say like looking up crime rates in America vs Gun ownership rates. Inclucing factors like when states started putting restriction on guns and passing laws to take our ability to defend ourselves away.
    Or maybe how many of those countries he listed have been successfully invaded since the time that America was founded.

    Sure, lots of data to research and find, but paints a completely different picture than the anti-gun people want us to know.

    when the dems first started the gun control nonsense in the 1960s it was not designed initially as an attack on gun owners but rather as a defense against the Nixonian claim that dems were weak on crime

    only after gun groups objected to the silly laws and started supporting politicians who made fun of the dems attempt to be "tough on crime" did the dems start targeting pro gun groups and people whose votes were based on gun issues for harassment

    Forth Hood was really bad, these were soldiers, the ones we give some of the most powerful weapons in the world to, but we wouldn't allow them to be armed day to day. Seems to me if carrying and using arms is part of your job, you should always carry them and always be concious of the safety of them. Personally, I think Military personnel should fully armed and carrying full loads of ammo at all times, and I mean locked and loaded, not banded with "safety" seals. It would certainly made a difference in the Air Force, too many outside the security police really didn't know squat about safety and handling of weapons when they went deployed and got issued them. It was so bad in some places, that during Iraqi Freedom, our arms were locked in a box at the back of the airplane and only two people had the key. Like if we went down, that would of helped us any, might just as well kept them in a locker in the states.

    I suspect what he supports is safe working environments for active shooters.

    When I saw the pic, I saved it because I thought it made a great point about mass shootings in gun-free zones and that a ban from carrying on school grounds was the infringement the pic was against.

    well that is what smart people who understand that active shooters don't obey gun laws would think

    I don't, you have misread the discussion, and/or misinterpreted the cartoon.
