Can’t live if living is without you

Drama queen nation:

. . your chance of dying in a school shooting approximates that of being struck by lightning. In contrast, Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck estimates that 2.5 million Americans each year use guns for self-defense and that 400,000 of them say they would have been killed if they hadn’t been armed. That’s 400,000 a year.

Total bullshit. If Americans didn’t have all those guns, the number of homicides in this country would jump from 16,000 to 416,000? Yeah right – a 2,600% increase. Concomitantly there’d be a 16% surge in the number of deaths per year, and national life expectancy would take a serious statistical hit. Come to think of it…not-having a gun would immediately become the third leading cause of death in America, after heart disease and cancer. Is it any wonder we can’t have a sensible discussion about gun control?

    Total Right-Wing Bullshit. That works out to 1096 times a day. Provide the 1096 news stories from papers every day or this conservative liar should close his gun sucking mouth.

    You don’t believe that almost 1% of the gun-wielding public thwarts a homicide every year, year after year? Why in the world would they lie? You make it sound as if they’re just paranoid and hysterical. To the point of not knowing fantasy from reality. Ahem.
