That was total criminal, defensive, and accidental and most of which in the U.S. indeed were suicides.

    As well if we took out criminal on criminal violence and put into it's own catagory those numbers would change dramatically. Plus it's interesting that anti-gunners only want to include "gun deaths" when comparing against international statistics, especially when overall murder rates are not favorable to many heavy ban countries.
    I think we all understand people like Catawba want to restrict guns because of the politics of honest gun owners.

    the dems hate the fact that every real pro gun group generally supports conservative politicians and while that might mean some dems, its mainly republicans. So the dems figure if they can kill off or diminish legal gun ownership, they will drain the power of the pro gun groups

    The fact that every other wealthy populous nation has far less intentional homicides by firearms completely refutes your theory.

    that is even more idiotic than most of the stuff you spew

    as other nations ban more guns their violence goes up

    tell us what your solution is

    and you cannot undo 200+ years of widespread gun ownership

    why do american whites have lower rates of violence with guns than white europeans?

    So you are sticking to the "intentional homicide" line? Give us some actual numbers, broken down catagorically by criminal and defense act.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If they try to purchase from a dealer then arrest them, it is illegal simply to attempt to purchase a weapon with a felony background. If they were involuntarily committed to a mental institution don't sell to them, no dealer actually would anyway. If they buy them off the street you can't do anything until they are caught, no law or furtherance of law will stop that. But you CAN add years to a sentence if a felon is caught in possession.






    The fact remains, no matter how you try to spin it, that the US kills more humans intentionally with firearms than any other wealthy populous nation.
    It's a cherry picked fact, when you weight crimes committed regardless of the weapon the U.S. goes down the list dramatically, but if you want to keep up this line be my guest. You are not correct. If you are killed by a wood chipper you're still dead, so it is incredibly deceptive to have a "violent gun crime" and "other violent crime" seperation.





    What threat to responsible gun owners are more stringent background checks to help prevent criminals and the insane from purchasing guns?
    Have you ever tried to purchase a gun? I have purchased firearms and can tell you that the checks are incredibly thourough already.

    I have provided actual numbers that show that more humans are killed intentionally with firearms in the US than in other wealthy populous nations. Your sub-categories do not alter that fact, is much as you may wish that it would.

    obvious gun control is not the issue

    and we say so what. Most of those are suicides and of the murders 80% or more (serious juvenile records are not made public) of those killed are felons being killed by other felons

    do you have a solution or are you going to yap on and on about crime rates that have LESSENED as gun ownership and numbers have increased
