    Guns don't kill people.

    Rappers do.

    I agree it is a very simply question

    and the only factual answer they way you worded it is no, they simply do not

    how they work and the people that launch them do


    example

    in 2010 america had 5,113 of them, how many people have they killed?

    my message is too short so I will bore you all with a bit of poetry.
    where are the promises we vowed to keep?

    So far, what nuclear weapons have done is ended one world war, prevented any subsequent world war and dramatically reduced the number of deaths from war ever since. This is very similar to how firearms dramatically reduce the number of violent crimes - as noted in my signature line.

    Good point. This leads me to the conclussion that we should control guns like we do nuclear bombs. 0 tolerance is good.

    And that would be an incorrect conclusion, but why does that not surprise me.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I don't know who thinks that guns walk around planning to shoot up innocent women and children, but I ain't one of them. I do think that there's something psychologically effed up with people in the United States in general that results in thousands of gun deaths per year, though. I work a fair amount in Finland, and I can tell you that whatever you may think about them, those are hard some hard core, armed, hunting mofos over there. Not only that, but they have clear memories of being invaded by the Russians twice in the last century alone, expect another one at any time, and so are, militarily and individually, frigging ready for it.

    Now let's look at gun deaths per year between the two countries:

    United States: 10.2 deaths/100,000.
    Finland: 3.64 deaths/100,000

    List of countries by firearm-related death rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So I don't think there's something wrong with guns, per se. I think there's something wrong with us, our culture or our system.

    And when detonated upwind of where people are, and when detonated where people will be.
