    Re: To Those Who Don't Live In The USA, Stop Criticizing Our Gun Rights

    People from overseas criticize our gun laws because the US is a goddamned war zone. Everything is so polarized. Everyone views everyone else as an enemy to be defeated.

    When we act like children, we deserve to be criticized.
    Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven. - Milton

    It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. - Carl Sagan

    people who see the USA as a war zone are not ones worth worrying about or giving their opinion any credibility

    Here's what I'm asking you to do:

    1. Look at the gun death rate of a country of your choice, say, the the UK before strict gun control was implemented

    2. Compare the gun death rate before gun control to the rate after gun control and see if there's a significant difference.

    The fact that you're refusing to do so indicates to me you don't have a leg to stand on.
    Scripture, facts, science, and stats is how I argue.

    The fact that our (already tiny) gun deaths have declined by 75% since 2001 thanks to prudent gun legislation is clearly something you will never accept

    Why do you keep thinking bullets care about politics ? I'm guessing its because it suits your certain lethal 'persuasions'

    Why do you ignore the fact that gun violence tends to be highest where people who think-I mean feel-as you do, are in control?
