No, it's my manly odor that makes me one.
We need to invent guns that shoot in both directions at once. You die too if you shoot someone.
Handguns are the leading killers by far. At least with a rifle you can see the perp coming and get prepared but handguns can spring out with virtually no warning.
Countries with strict gun control do still have mass murders but not nearly as many per capita as us. We are way over the top.
Give your wife bear spray or a whistle.
I guess we could all wear suicide vests, and detonate when things turn bad?
Bear spray or a whistle are far less of a deterrent. And I'm not sure hiw much help they'd be in a mass murder situation. For example, gunman chasing people through a mall or restaurant.
You are correct about handguns. You are also correct about more mass murders here. But we've always had more mass murders here.
Russia has extreme gun control (guns are virtually illegal to own for the general population) yet they have 4x the violent crime and murder as the US.
Gini coefficient is the best thing to tackle. All the countries with better violent crime and murder rates, as well as lower mass killings have far better gini coefficient ratios than we do here in the US. Including some Nordic countries which have decently high gun ownership rates.
How many mass murder situations would there be without all these guns? How many mass murder situations do we have with all these guns?
I don't know, the guy wandering around Walmart this weekend with a gun on his hip. What a bad ass. I mean must be a bad ass to need to carry a gun in Walmart.
Besides being a liar, he is a poor actor too.
In 2021 there have been 39 people killed in the USA in mass shootings. Last year it was 9.
A total of 996 victims were fatally injured during mass shootings in the United States between 1982 and May 26, 2021.
That's an average of around 26 deaths per year.
We average nearly 1200 bludgeoning deaths per year (hands, feet, bats, blunt objects). Significantly more deaths every year than the last 40 years of mass shootings combined...
I submit that mass shootings are incredibly low on the list of what I want our leaders spending time on. There are far more important things they should be focused on.
I'm not that worried about those people. The people who would be mugging my wife would have sold all of that stuff for drug money before this point.
And the biggest part from my perspective is that she feels safer, and feels capable of defending herself, so doesn't act like a victim.
Not being a victim is the first line of defense when trying to avoiding conflict. If you're good enough at avoiding conflict it doesn't matter how capable you are.
How'd you get your woman to carry? Tried that with mine and she would have none of it even though she enjoys shooting at the range and is a good shot.
So bear spray and whistles are not strong enough protection for your wife because of mass shootings situations...
......But also mass shootings are not really a big enough deal to really worry about?
Good points but I would also mention that as long ad we allow drugs easily into our country and a breakdown of the family can contribute to problems with crime and illegal use of guns.
The whole drug issue is swept under the carpet in allowing cartels to poison our kids, and many families have been destroyed because of it.
Deal with illegal drugs and we help humanity.
Gun charge dropped lmaoo
he’s def getting off. The only good side is shit like this is what angers and energizes people to vote like in 2020
You all know it was the prosecution that asked the judge to drop the gun charges, right?
I stand by my original statement. America is fucking stupid with its gun obsession. I’ll take my chances with bare hands, bats and hammers. And my family’s.
Prosecution was a trainwreck from the start.
I haven't seen any of the trial.
Defense has argued in closing that the jury shouldn't believe DNA evidence, photographic evidence, police or eyewitness testimony that contradicts Kyle's accounts of that evening. On the stand Kyle has been shown to have been lying about a multitude of things from being there as an EMT (he isn't), that he'd been asked to protect private property (he hadn't) & what he stated to police about his first victim Joseph Rosenbaum pointing a gun at him (Rosenbaum didn't have a gun). According to many legal analysts, the judge in this case has been obviously biased consistently going out of his way to give the Defense favorable rulings and conversely dressing down the prosecution. While anyone else would be removed from the courtroom for not having their phone on mute, the judge's has gone off several times... his ringtone is Trump's rally anthem. Also his mishandling of jury instructions is thought to have given the Defense clear grounds for appeal.
You're more than welcome to do exactly that.
It doesn't change the fact that the gun debate is just a designed distraction from the real problems. Every bit of time our politicians spend on the gun debate is valuable time wasted.
