I think I see where you're coming from, you're not denying that all those people die each year, you're denying the statement that it happens every 25 seconds. I'm going to have to agree with you, you can take anything that happens out there, do a mathematical equation and say it happens that many times, it doesn't make it true. Unless there was something out there recording the exact time of every crash, there is no way of saying that someone dies every 25 in a car accident.

In fact, the picture says "Takes one life every 25 seconds" what about multiple collisions at once where more than one person dies? So yes, I understand where you're coming from, too bad the rest of these people are too simple minded to see outside the box or maybe you're just a faggot. *puts hand on shoulder* but I understand.

On average, 40,000 people die from car accident in the U.S. every year.   
Divide that by 365 days and you get 109.59 vehicular deaths per day.   
Divide that by 24 hours and you get 4.566 vehicular deaths per hour.   
Divide that by 60 minutes and you have .07610 vehicular deaths per minute.   
   
So, about 3 people die every two minutes from car accidents and that number is steadily declining with technological advances. The statistic that someone dies every 25 seconds was probably established up to or around 20 years ago, which would have heightened the average body count a little higher than 40,000.    
   
Imagine if I added in every vehicle-related death in the world. There would be far more deaths on our list per minute.

30,000/365=82.19
82.19/24=3.43
3.43/60=.06

so that's about 3 deaths an hour, and 40,000 still wouldn't reach 1 person every 25 seconds

3 people an hour in US alone. Now let's look at the world, which is what this ad implies by quoting statistics from the WORLD health organization.

1.2 million die per year in motor vehicle related accidents ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_traffic-related_death_rate )

1.2mil/365= 3287.6
3287.6/24= 136.9
136.9/60= 2.28 deaths per minute

60/2.28= 26 seconds per death, close enough to 25 that rounding errors likely account.

Protip: As much as we Americans like to believe so, America is not the entire world.

while i agree somewhat about the cars, you can buy a car that can go 5x faster than ANY posted limit (outside the autobahn), multi ton vehicles with a tv screen in the steering wheel, not even to mention an absolute waste of gas when you don't need a lot of power at all to go a decent speed. cars are probably just as dangerous, if not more so than guns. plus there is also hunting, target practice, competitions, wild life control, and i'm sure a few more examples could come from people who know more about guns than i.

Guns are normally used for sport. Hell, I want a gun. I live in the country and the only reason I've never been around guns is because my dad didn't want to raise kids with them in the house (which was a good idea, but I'm an adult now).

There are many reasons to own a gun outside of shooting people. I need a gun to hunt just as much as people need a car to get somewhere. Guns are also good tools for self defence and defending the citizens from corruption of ones government. Guns are used in competitions which can be the reason some students gain access to schooling that they, any other way, could not afford. Then you look at something like liquor, responsible for far more deaths in society which holds no true value other then recreation and financial gain. There are many other examples of things people don't need that cause more deaths and are more dangerous then guns. Guns are just as safe as cars if not safer with a responsible owner and every bit as practical!

I'm not personally against guns, I think that in America it's beyond unachievable to get rid of them entirely. But their purposes boil down to shooting things, practicing shooting things, and threatening intruders with the possibility of shooting them.

I never liked that argument. I need a gun to protect myself and those around me. but even if I did not NEED the gun, I want it. You don't NEED a 50 inch TV, you want it. You don't NEED a nice car, you want it. You don't NEED that gaming console, you want it. You cannot say you have a right to one thing while I do not have a right to another. Because everyone sees rights and how to use them differently.

Just saying I'm not a big fan of people owning "just because" mostly because those people I've met don't ever seem trustworthy to own the gun in the first place. It unnerves me that some people have them, but I can sit at the table with a hunting friend and clean his rifles with him no problem, because he's an avid hunter who knows safety and discipline. I like the idea of making guns bought purely for show being non-firing, and not needing a license because they are essentially a piece of metal, and have the ones for defense/hunting registered.

I also use a bow so I don't get the whole gun fuss. I could easily put an arrow in some guy's skull, same with a crossbow, but they still get less slack. And a bow isn't difficult to fire continuously either, especially if you have practice and a good release it can be ******* deadly.

Ya my stepdad doesn't like guns due to childhood trauma from his father, so I never grew up around them and I was lucky to get the bow. I've been looking for a handgun though, I still prefer bow hunting but I'd like on to have as backup and even defense. My friend recommended one but I forget the name, just something like a Mauser

You want a Glock my friend. Complete disassembly with a 8 dollar tool in less than a minute. There is a reason everyone and their creepy uncle owns one. Reasonably priced and utterly reliable. Some glocks have gone over 1,000,000 rounds with only minor part replacement.

Maybe in your new call of duty game, but a real Glock will only go through maybe max 300k rounds before the polymer frame breaks.

I think you underestimate Glock. Chuck Taylor has his Gen1 G17 with 300,000 rounds. There are multiple stress tests done by, well, any firearm forum you go to done by people far more experienced than we are. And then of course, there is this.

The only other pistol platform I can think of that could contest Glock for longevity would be a GI spec 1911.

But I am sure you are going to question this and argye, since you know more than Chuck Taylor, Mossad Ayoob, and dozens of other firearm pro's with decades of experience.

Ok, I really wanted to get something like an old Luger (German warfare weaponry was amazing in WWII) but that era is long passed I think. I'm in Canada too, so would you know the legality of something like a revolver? I know I found something legal online a while back.

All kinds of things are legal in Canada, you just have to jump through a few hoops.

A lot of people want something old or unique, but replacing parts, reliability, and general ease of use are all limited. A luger P08 for instance has a fully exposed action, meaning a single grain of sand can and will lock it up. Something the Germans learned the hard way.

I am 100% pro-gun, but I do support both registration and background checks. I buy and sell guns pretty much every week, Shown is my newest project, a stock Glock 19 gen3 I plan to kit out into a tight unit for IDPA. But I insist on going through a FFL when I sell a gun. I know that registration and BGC's don't stop crime as someone who is 100% motivated to get a gun will get one. But it can stop someone who is just having a bad day from getting one. Things like a 3 day wait and/or filling out paperwork can make someone calm down and think rationally. Sounds stupid, and I am sure other gunnies more fervent than I will thumb me down. I just believe in reasonable and responsible gun control laws.

True, we don't need a gun any more than we need an expensive computer. And yet, there are people with both commodities. Why is it a big deal if I have a gun? Or a computer?

That's why we don't have a National Guard and cops carry squirt guns, because no one anywhere can ever do anything wrong.

I don't know who said it, but "Gun Control is saying that a woman who was raped and murdered is morally superior to a woman who has to explain how her attacker sprouted extra holes."

Also, I don't know where you live, but I live in MAINE. We have the second lowest crime rate in the country as a state. And we still have break ins, assaults, rapes, and the odd murder. Just a few weeks ago we had a gas station clerk get stabbed during a robbery.

Yeah, because there's no chance at all of a murderer having a gun either, so the solution is to give everyone a gun, so everybody could have the potential to murder if they snap one day. Look, I don't really care about guns, I don't care if they're controlled are not. But giving everyone a gun is not a solution. Saying you need one is silly.

I do need one, and it is my right to do so. Where does that mean I think everyone should have one? If you knew how to read you would notice one of my other comments where I quite clearly say I believe in gun control and common sense ownership.

I respect the USA 2nd... and which that i had that right in my country. I hope that young people will learn the value of that right and never let it go, seeing first hand what can happen if you do.

It's either them or you.
