they left handguns out of the killing statistics, but they were in the owning statistics.. thats the bad thing. I doubt that more than 90% of americans own a rifle.. most only own handguns.

So they argue that 90% of people own guns (all kind of guns) yet only "such a small percentage" are killed by rifles...

Arrgh! Link For Explanations HERE

Sources like the FBI and UN. You know: ultra right-wing!

@97e4ad: That is an abject lie. The FBI and other groups collect information EVERY YEAR on such things. They may use various criteria, but I assure you it's not "just one pole".

@jops360: They left handguns OUT because the CURRENT round of "gun laws" ALSO leaves them OUT. El Duh!
The currently proposed "laws" would ban "assault gun-like weapons" (namely the AR-15 and others) which are in fact identical to 1,000 NOT BANNED weapons in all but appearance. But they LOOK scary!

Of course they left hand guns out of it. The point was to show the stupidity of going after the AR15 and to show the stupidity of using emotions from the school shooting to take away second amendment rights.

love how they left handguns out of the picture. as drprofessor stated not many people carry rifles, but with the increase in conceal to carry permits more people have handguns. to keep with this not all of them are safe people. just waiting for the news stories about one of them shooting up a bar due to someone hitting on their wife/girlfriend or just being a dick.

The oft-cited statistic of "2.5 million" instances of self-defense with a gun is based on ONE telephone survey in 1993, of 5000 people. 67 said they used a gun in self-defense, which was extrapolated to 2.5 million. No attempt was made to confirm the data. Given that there are only one million violent crimes in the US per year, this is an example of bad statistics.

5cats - It's not a democrat VS. republican issue. When you start the conversation like that, you are hurting your own cause.
It's more like emotion VS. Logic. The pro ban supporters are scared and want SOMETHING DONE!

Ugh.

Look at the other countries in the "top gun homicides" list. Not known for being particularly stable.

Rifles v. other murder
how many people have access to a rifle compared to those with access to their fists? especially in a situation where they get in a violent altercation? "Hang on, let me go home and get my gun before I can kill you." Sheer statistics say that there will be more deaths caused by the most readily available weapons.

Interesting how one of the facts omitted is that most Americans DON'T own any guns at all.

I knew two people who were murdered with guns, by their father, during a custody battle. Even though the children expressed fear over their father's ability to responsibly possess a gun the Children's Aid Society told them that they couldn't do anything about it until he did prove dangerous.
I knew a young man who was stabbed under a bridge because he objected to another man who was pissing next to his head as he slept.
I knew a girl who was stabbed in an apartment as an unwitting bystander in an insane, jealous lovers' feud.
I knew a man who died from a blow to the head in a bar brawl.

All murder is horrible.

It's only tragic when several people are killed at the same time, but when thousands are killed one person at a time...it's ok.

That is the only logical reason to focus on the scary guns like the AR-15.
