    Yes, it is. That stat does not account for suicides and criminals within the house. Once you account for that, you are safer with a gun.

    I believe everyone should have a constitutional right to bear arms, it's just my choice not to own one although it would be fun to occasionally go to a range to fire as I've also read that firing relieves stress. Would be nice to know if ranges rent by the hour for those like myself not in possession.

    why does it seem like people pick and choose what they want to call mass executions. sometimes its manmade famines. sometimes its shooting people. which is it

    where do you live there are four ranges in the greater Cincinnati area that rent by the hour-you just have to use the weapon on the premises and use the (sometimes overpriced) ammo they sell.

    uh I disagree. the stuff you supplied at best demonstrated neglect or a priority that was not conducive to feeding everyone (i.e. beating the Nazis and the Japanese was more important to the Brits then Indian nutrition)

    ethically what's the difference between british indifference killing indians and say, a hypothetical mass shooting
