moderation pertaining to guns; I was seconding the content, in that I believe current law is adequate. Most types of practical firearms are accessible, while the nut-jobs who want anti aircraft guns in their back yards are under control.

If that's what it means, SilenceIkillu, that would mean that only 3.28 people out of every 1,000,000 (i.e. one million) is being counted. If the U.S. population is 275,000,000 (275 million) that would represent only 902 incidents. I seem to recall there are something like 11,000 gun-related deaths per year in the USA.
#161 - anonymous (01/18/2013) [-]
11,000 is considered the homicide rate that included all murder, the average gun related death excluding suicide is normally around 8,000 a year. With this statistic you also have to consider some people killed more than one person. I still think that number is a little low.

www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/ This is a really good website to look up this kind of information.
User avatar #204 - timxcampbell (01/18/2013) [-]
Thanks for that link. The 11,000 figure I used came from (I think) the United Nations world report. From a purely academic standpoint it's rather frustrating that these various reports don't match up ... but I suppose that whether it's 8,000 or 11,000 it's still a whole lot of thousands.

no. i'm sorry, i'm not a very good communicator so please bare with me. people will do those things, but again, it's a very small number. as opposed to the overwhelming majority of responsible gun owners who've never committed a crime in their life, and the again overwhelming number of people who use their legally-bought guns to save lives and prevent robberies.

I'm still not quite getting it. Tell you what: if you can remember the web site from which you got that statistic of "0.000328% or something like that" maybe they'll explain it and give the official stats. Obviously 99.9999% of white-collar crime doesn't involve a gun, but I'm not sure if they're counting that in calculating their statistic.

If you've forgotten where the statistic comes from, don't sweat it. Maybe somebody else will know what you're referring to.

also, the reason gun violence is so lesser is because the government punishes law-abiding citizens for owning them. the scare people into submission. and there may not be as much GUN violence, but there is a record number of stabbings in the so called "prosperous" nations.

User avatar #22 - lulzdealer (01/17/2013) [-]
oh sure. it's an actual statistic ( i wasn't trying to say that no one has ever committed a crime using a gun, that would be stupid). i think the number is somewhere around .000328% or something like that.
User avatar #26 - timxcampbell (01/17/2013) [-]
I see. So what you're saying is that the percentage of people using guns in various crimes is small. Nobody will shoplift with a gun, nor will they steal a car from a parking lot with a gun. (What would they do? Threaten the car?)

Have I understood your point correctly?

i don't know. those are some valid points, to be sure. but i think if more people open carried, criminals would be less likely to start firing.
User avatar #23 - timxcampbell (01/17/2013) [-]
I think that point cannot be debated, if you are referring to career criminals. But crazy people? Or people driven to the brink of insanity by stress (economic and otherwise)? People who want "suicide by cop"? Such people won't care about or will even welcome the presence of openly carrying guns.

The solution must dig deeper than "Guns or no guns?" There must be reasons why gun violence in the USA is many, many times greater than in other prosperous nations such as Canada or England.

The question is one of relevance, not one of meaning. What do you hope might come of your posting this image and its cryptic accompaniment of desc. and tags?

I'm entertaining myself and learning about this site. Also, this is a creative outlet, and I haven't done much creative stuff in the past few months.

Does that answer your question?
