    Stricter gun laws tied to fewer childhood gun deaths

    this study is no surprise. guns are not like alcohol, sex, or driving. those are things more essential for human behavior and things worth doing, even if it meant breaking the law. a lot of people do not have a curiosity or instinct to shoot a gun. there are a lot more easier and safer outlets a person can do besides going to the range or hunt.

    Please point to a law that REQUIRES you to own a gun?

    Your position is meaningless. People already have the choice to own or not to own, no one is forced to do so.

    Thus if one chooses not to in favor of your list of "worthwhile doings," then fine and dandy.

    However, someone might choose to own a gun because they consider things one can do (hunting, competitive shooting, collecting) or simply for good old self-defense "worthwhile doings." Who are YOU to say they are not worthwhile endeavors?

    Your appeal to emotion notwithstanding, telling OTHER people what they should consider "worthwhile doings" is a bit presumptuous don't you think?

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    I don't see a study. I cannot believe that mankind was able to exist for over ten thousand years without a car to drive. and I and many others don't drink alcohol. Any other wrong things you want to post?

    I agree. The world is a safer place if small, weak males and females are not able to protect themselves. Its better if only the government has guns, we can trust them.

    The study doesn't indicate that stricter gun laws result in fewer childhood gun deaths. It just indicates that there are fewer childhood gun deaths in states with stricter gun laws, which also happen to be states with fewer guns because people who don't own guns tend to not care about strict gun laws and vote accordingly.

    Correlation is not causation.

    Re: Stricter gun laws tied to fewer childhood gun deaths

    The guy who sponsored that nonsense is a hard core bannerrhoid


    The researchers weren’t able to show that implementing stricter gun laws would directly lead to fewer pediatric gun-related deaths since they didn’t compare states before and after new regulations were put in place. What they did find was that those states that already had strict laws—jurisdictions that might differ in other significant ways from states with lax gun laws—had fewer deaths.






    Bloomberg? LOL

    In the last 25 years, millions upon millions of more guns have been bought by Americans and the rate of children dying from gunshots has decreased.
