Strollin' Johnny BS: Virginia Tech Shooting, 20 dead? (432* d) RE: BS: Virginia Tech Shooting, 20 dead? 19 Apr 07


"There are nearly 200 million firearms in private hands in the U.S., and more than 30,000 people nearly 10 times the total number of Americans who have died in Iraq are killed by those guns each year."

This in a country where virtually anyone can have as many guns as he or she wishes.

There are less than 100 homicides by shooting per annum in the UK, where strong gun controls exist. <100/60m*300m = <500 should be the number for the US. Instead it's >60 times that number.

Very few UK residents will ever see a gun, except in the hands of the armed forces/police ARUs. Only a very tiny minority will ever handle one.

Why don't these butt-stupid gun-head fools see the correlation? How can they continue with their denials?
