Eh, I'd still be dating that guy if he wasn`t so opinionatedly oblivious in a mild but ceaselessly annoying intolerant way. It`d be like if Screech from Saved by the Bell wouldn`t shut up about how women shouldn`t have sex before marriage.

@musuko42: The point, which seems to have eluded you, is this:
Gun Grabbers argue that less guns = safety
They point at Britain and Australia, where "gun murders" have declined slightly since massive gun restrictions.
HOWEVER: #1 Most US States have WAY MORE guns per capita and LOWER overall crime rates than those places.
#2 "Gun Crimes" may or may not have dropped in B&A, but all other crimes have increased
#3 Meanwhile in the USA: guncrimes AND overall crime has been DROPPING despite the INCREASE in the number of guns owned by LAWFUL US citizens!
#4 The States with the strongest "gun restrictions" are the States with the MOST gun crime!
#5 If you take "race-based gang violence" out of the US numbers? It's not all that different from Europe...

SO: The PROBLEM is not the number of LEGAL guns! It`s ILLEGAL GANGS! ffs...

@Musuko42

Now how do you make guns "safer?" You know they have this thing on them called a saftey it keeps them from firing.

@paco664

Your government DOES make laws to make vehicles safer. Seatbelts? Airbags?

You've kinda just talked yourself into defeating your own argument: laws are made to make cars safer, so why not guns?

Higher than "some" states...meaning four states? The four states with the lowest murder rates in your list? Heavens, it`s a disaster for the UK!

Why does that graph only show a handful of states anyway? What about the rest?

also.... automobiles kill approx 34,000 people in the U.S. annually...

we need to have congress make a law that cars cannot exceed 5mph and must be encased in either nerf or bubble wrap to avoid injury to other drivers or pedestrians...
