there's not even any fun in taunting you any more Is that what you were doing? Dang, I missed it. I read back quite a bit and still don`t see it. Maybe if you try again it`ll be better this time? I could give you some pointers if you`d like - I`m here to help Francois. Is it OK if I call you Francois?
[quote]Congratulations. Go `Murica.[/quote] Thank you! In the past, many Europeans have simply stormed off in a fit of rage. However, I see that you are much more experienced. You`re so familiar with America winning that you`ve come to not only accept it, but you even congratulate us! Surely this proves the Theory of Evolution!
Francois, I feel like this is truely the beginning of a great friendship. I look forward to your next outburst.

Well done, you have indeed managed to find *one* paper which supports your viewpoint Five > one... Not sure what you missed.
[quote]I'm not counting the UK one because it`s *40* years old ffs[/quote] Well shucks, I hadn`t realized that neither statistics nor guns were around 40 years ago. How silly of me.
[quote]But... you still haven`t even attempted to rebut any of my sources.[/quote] I`ve presented 5, well 6 if you count Lott, articles that back my stance and contradict yours. See: How to Form a Rebuttal.
[quote]actually making me feel a bit sorry for you[/quote] Aww =). You Euros sure are a mindful bunch.
[quote]but you have totally failed to put forward a case for well, anything.[/quote] See above.
[quote]but you have successfully won this argument[/quote] Winner, winner! I accept you admission of defeat. Let me guess, French?

The fact that you think you`re putting forward a convincing argument has gone past being funny into actually making me feel a bit sorry for you. It`s nice that you`re passionate about your beliefs, but you have totally failed to put forward a case for well, anything.
I`m sorry that the bad man makes you feel sad when he talks about taking away your guns, but you have successfully won this argument by merit of making yourself seem so thick that there`s not even any fun in taunting you any more.

The missing quote from the last link:
"The profound effects of income inequality and social capital, when controlling for other factors such as poverty and firearm availability, on firearm violent crime indicate that policies that address these broader, macro-social forces warrant serious consideration."
I believe that gives me five sources that agree with me: socioeconomic and cultural factors are responsible for violent crime independently of firearm availability.
