Shooting must involve at least one person being shot (not including the shooter)
Shooting must occur on school grounds
We included gang violence, fights and domestic violence (but our count is NOT limited to those categories)
We included grades K through college/university level as well as vocational schools
We included accidental discharge of a firearm as long as the first two parameters are met"


then you also have to feel good about including BB gun cosplay as equal to someone spraying a room full of people with a shotgun. Or football players getting into a fight at a party somewhere on a college campus. Etc. Etc.

The actual stat would still show the US as way above the other 6 G7 countries, so why does CNN feel the need to goose the numbers so much? And why do you knowingly fall in line?


Oh yeah the thread in which everybody proved that youre full of shit.

Anybody who argues that whats happening with gun violence in America is a normal occurrence amongst developed nations, is either delusional or a liar. Probably both.


roflmao another well reasoned response*

*wherein you sidestep the issue and create red herrings instead



What is your response? Rollie heads?

You and Janitor the ones who are sidestepping and creating red herrings by splitting hairs over definitions and semantics.

There's no other developed, civilized nation where this is happening. Only here.

And it's fvcking nuts.

Split hairs all you want.

You've been living in a gun nut bubble all your life. Books learned you nothing.


now I'm super confused. I thought I was the janitor, but you seem unconvinced. Maybe you're drunk? Not judging, just wondering. I'll take this opportunity to refer to myself in the third person.

the janitor feels that your use of inflated numbers is ridiculous, given that everyone already knows the US has more gun crime that the rest of the G7 countries. The janitor feels that no sane person is disputing that fact and wonders why you and CNN need to juice the data to make it seem even worse. The janitor feels that damages the journalistic credibility of those fine, fine people at CNN. Who by the way host one of the only shows the janitor watches on cable - Anthony Bourdain.

the janitor would like to post lots of rollie heads, but knows that r32 will get miffed, so the janitor will only post one (1).

-Update on the score of Islamic Terrorism deaths vs shootings from white nationalists and school shooters.
-Apologism for gun deaths and the NRA from posters who seem to spend more time cleaning their gun collection than in the water.
-2nd Amendment discussion.
-Comparison to deaths from knives, cars, vans, pit bulls (and now daschunds?), bathtubs, SUP foil boards, etc., and why those things aren't regulated the way guns are.
-Reasonable responses from posters who understand the complexity of the issue, who are shortly after ilked as gun nuts, despite the actual content of their posts.
-Whataboutism, whineybithassness and kookyhomosex.
-An absurd number of posts that most of us have no desire to bother keeping up with and soon give up on.

Am I missing anything confused2
ban


Yes.

You missed the 'dog driving a forklift kills person' angle.

Which firearms should be prohibited from general possession and why?

What weapon should you not be allowed to carry and why?
