    Typical "what-about-ism" resort of gun owners.
    Well..its logic.

    IF your logic is sound..it should apply equally well to any situation. IF your premise is 40,000 lives matter..and banning guns will save those 40,000 lives.

    THEN if you are consistent with your logic.. you SHOULD call for banning knives and banning pools since you would save even more lives than banning guns.

    The fact that you are inconsistent with your logic exposes just how illogical your premise is.

    ...do you really believe that criminals are going to hand in their firearms.?

    Yes, if an amnesty was announced
    Or they throw them away in response to heavier penalties for being found with one, plus as the ammo supply runs dry
    Or they're arrested and their guns are seized and destroyed


    ...most americans probably wouldn't hand in their firearms.. or at least all of them.
    Yes they would
    They'd stand in line and meekly hand the over or face the consequences - just as the British and Americans did


    ...a crucial tool in wildlife management. Wildlife scientists set seasons based on scientific data to keep populations within the carrying capacity of land...
    Can you name one such place where this crucial "tool" exists and the wildlife concerned ?


    ...from the national safety council.
    And ?


    ...since the USA has a higher gun death rate than Syria .. you must believe Syria is much safer than the US???
    Syria is a war zone

    Stay on topic and compare like for like.


    ...you must now realize that your statistic of gun violence and gun death is invalid.
    See above


    ...FROM the ARTICLE YOU CITED!!!
    WHAT'S FROM THE ARTICLE !!!!


    ...you know those "gun deaths"...a good portion of them are suicides... and according to your premise.. banning guns would stop those deaths...
    So yes... you are suggesting that guns cause suicides...
    No I'm not, and no-one in the right mind would. You're just a young kid who knows nothing of mental health disorders
    And the people who die from suicide are work saving too...to say otherwise or to just dismiss them is just contemptible


    ...I have had conversations with people that have lost those friends and family... and a good portion of them are madder than a hatter...
    I somehow doubt that.

    And rocks and sharp sticks...

    Deflection noted

    Pure "what-about-ism" we're talking about guns.

    Stay on topic.

    Totally off topic but OK, road traffic accidents are too high and more should be done to bring them down.

    Are you done with your "what-about-ism" or do you also want to talk about swimming pools ?
