    Couple this with the fact that most homicides in America take place in "Gun Free" zones and the statistic becomes that much more telling!

    The tags are at the bottom below where you enter the body of your message. For some reason the tags are added in with the title you post. I just delete them all. Another useless vBulletin option.

    Wonder how much the death by gunshot toll could go up if there was a total ban on guns in this country and federal agents started going door to door to collect them.


    Wonder if our favorite federal LEO, zombie, would come out of retirement to lend a hand in the collection.

    We have some of the best record keeping in the world. Other countires do not.

    Also these records are based on different criteria.

    For example, in England if the case is not solved and someone is killed by gunshot it is not recorded becasue it was not solved.

    In addition, this number includes sucides and that makes up a lot of the US number. I'd be interested in the - suicide - gang number.

    And the countries that the OP listed are mostly 3rd world countries. They don't compare with the USA.

    Yeah, and 90% of the murders commited in the US are by third world vermin who have formed gangs. In face if you take blacks and heespanics out of the equation we rank right up there with the least amount of firearm homicides in the world.

    Yo, libtards.

    Just how do you retards twist the fact that Detroit with some of the most strict firearms laws in country had more homicides last year than troop casualties in Afghanistan?

    I really want to know, how do sick bastard liberals twist a fact like that in your head?

    So what's your point. Seems you missed the OP's point. They are third world countries that ban guns completely from thier citizens. Citizens that can't even afford guns if they could have them. Yet in countries that have far fewer guns per capita they still have a higher gun murder rate. Did you ever wonder why they are third world shitholes ? Maybe it's because with 100% bans on guns is so the dictators can keep them in thier place and poor. No need to worry about a revolt if they have nothing to fight with. I'm sure you won't answer as this was probably another drive by of yours.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    Third world by economic status? What on earth does this have to do with the point?

    Here's the point, and I'll use small words so you'll be sure to understand:
    * Strict gun laws don't stop criminals from having and using firearms
    * Facts prove that criminals flourish where gun laws are more strict
    * Homicides are much more frequent where the populous is unarmed
    * Economics and world rankings don't discriminate. The loss of a life is the same everywhere
    * Armed citizens protected by firearm ownership rights are less apt to die by homicide.

    This is really pretty simple there 1986, and it proves the point that escaped you - that gun laws don't protect citizens at all.
