Just FYI: This poster is from about 1985. I remember seeing it on the bulletin board in my undergrad college's mailroom. (Which explains why it refers to "West Germany" and why the statistics are about 27 years out of date.)

Yea, you as well, dude.
But please try to comprehend what i'm about to say.
Sure, people pull the trigger. So in that sense, yes, of course those persons are responsible. My point is that you wouldn't have that prob if not everybody was running around with drating cannons strapped to their hips. How many people do you think die unnecessary during a dispute just because a douche was carrying? Thats the real murderer, the accessibility and the fact that so many are carrying everywhere they go. But why do they carry? To be safe from criminals with guns, right? Aren't there any mericans that can see that this is a vicious circle? Violence begets violence. If you're gonna fight fire with fire you have to do it swiftly or else you're stuck with 2 fires. I'm not pointing a finger just at usa, this goes for everybody. But you guys have been screwed since they wrote the second amendment.
With that i send your last sentence right back at you.

Agree with a few here; You could either force everyone to have a gun or ban them all and still, the gun never killed anyone and won't under either condition. You wanna pass laws how about better ways to monitor at-risk whack jobs? Why don't you RFID those sick bastards?

Last year handguns killed ZERO people. Sh eit heads used hand guns to kill the 10991 people in this ad but the handguns did not do it. I am sorry but if even 10% of those people had been armed they would have to change the total to 9892. Still too many violent deaths but one number would not change. Handguns would have still killed ZERO people.

West-Germany isn't existing anymore and the US passed the 30000 - these numbers are so old.

@randomxnp: At least try and keep your argument factual and preferably without ad hominem arguments. I didn't cherry pick any data, I supplied the exact data to place Canada on the graph that AntEconomist provided. Canada's murder rate is roughly 1/3 that of the USA, and the handgun ownership is substantially lower as well. That information goes against the title of the graph. And I haven't told anyone what to do; one of the reasons I prefer living in Canada is because the majority of the population does not favour private gun ownership.

8bithero. [was talking about how one event should not be used to decide policy]

Would that be the same 8-bit hero who said, and I quote:

"I remember when the Batman shootings happened and there was a bunch of morons on I-A-B telling me how I'm wrong and blah blah crazy European, gun crimes SOMEHOW goes up if you take guns away etc etc bullshi7. So, America, how many shootings will it take for you guys to get rid of guns?"

I'm counting at least two shootings (the Batman one and this most recent one) that he is talking about and suggesting a pattern from.

As I say, when you accuse people of something they're clearly and demonstrably not doing, such as claiming they are talking about one isolated incident and deriving policy suggestions from same, you just look like an idiot that can't or won't read what's written in front of you.

550 people were murdered in the UK last year.
(source ONS)

Out of 60Million. That's about 1 in 100,000.

The UNODC has murder rates in the states at 4.2 per 100,000. So much for the deterrent of gun ownership.

if its was as black and white as comparing stats ~ then the UK with strict gun controls, is 4 times safer than the USA with lax gun controls.

Its not that simple, of course, but saying that the UK is worse off than the USA, from a safety PoV, or a crime PoV, is bollocks.

Nick12684's unsourced statistics are obviously just fantasy facts. Highest knife death and violence? What kind of statistic is that even?
How can we have more knife deaths than anyone else in the world when California alone had 250 murders by knives/cutting instruments (and 1250 by gun).

@randomxnp "You are a selfish, self-righteous and self-centred prig. You say that less gun ownership is better because you don't wish to own a gun. It is utterly selfish ...blah, blah, blah... it is just because you want to control others, tell them to live like you do. Typical "liberal" - illiberal in the extreme."

I also don't want you to experiment with explosives in your house and keep surface-to-surface missiles in your backyard. I'm so selfish, all fun killer.
