    I've got to wonder why then that the US has the highest rates of gun related deaths, surely it should be so safe that the figures would be lower than those shown in the link I posted.

    What's to wonder? People in the U.S. use guns, people in Canada, Britain, ETC use knives or something else. What's the point? Crime still decreasing in Gun-Loaded america while increasing in the other countries.... it's not rocket science... it's 2+2 :rolleyes:

    It is not that simple, look at my previous posts. The murder rate in USA is 3 times of Canada. Americans are also causing problems for Canadians. The liberal party is discussing ban on hand guns because of all the illegal guns that are smuggled to Canada from USA and used in crimes. Ban is not the answer but because of the problem, government is taking the easy route instead of working harder with border control or putting demands on gun manufacturer which will not be very popular with American government. ;)

    It is politician way of dealing with problem. Just pretend to do something instead of dealing with real problem. ;)

    guns don't kill people, people kill people, but someone with an ak47 can kill a lot of people.

    I wonder if there are any figures that would compare the survival rate of the average gunshot compared to the average knife wound?

    So what you are saying is that we should always try to use the least efficient tools possible?

    Next time I have to defend my home and my family, I'll use a pillow. After all, the survival rate of pillow wounds is exceptionally good.

    yes, sneak up on them and smother them to death. Or bite down on it whilst they do you up the bumhole.

    I'm not suggesting that we should try and remove guns from the USA. Not for one second. If you guys want them - you have them. Shoot yourselves silly for all I care.

    But I don't think introducing more guns, or making guns widely available to all and sundry in a country that doesn't have a history of wide scale gun ownership is a sensable idea.

    Guns are definitely not for everyone. Socialists, for example, should not have firearms.

    Where men are free, guns are a great blessing.

    Where men are property of the government, guns in private hands are a danger.

    Yeh, and someone with a home-made bomb could kill a LOT more people than with any gun. Are we going to outlaw ligther fluid and fertalizer? :rolleyes:

    You could always ask 50 cent, he's been shot 9 times and stabbed. :D

    It's me who has to defend the criminals -- from my wife.

    She's a much better shot than I am, but not nearly as... calm.

    If you find yourself in our backyard when I'm not at home, you could be under our backyard before I get home.

    Luckily gworld, you are so full of shit, you would make excellent fertilizer.

    I remembered from your previous posting that you were afraid of guns. Congratulation on finding a strong wife who can be the man of the house and protect you from all the bad people that you are so afraid of. ;)

    Now if you learn to control your urge to act tough then may be you will be OK. Remember that you are just a little boy and no one expect you to be a man. ;)

    Uhhh... you can't read.

    gworld, seriously, you need to lay off the drugs.

    I know they are "medication" for your "illness", but really they are hurting you more than they are helping.

    This is exactly the problem that I mentioned previously; you trying to act tough. We all know that you are just the scared little boy willy, you don't need to pretend with us. ;)

    so whats all this about having firearms to ensure that you can change government - I didn't really understand that one.

    Does that mean if someone takes out gee double yuh it's ok? Might not have a problem with that one (uh oh, might be off on a secret flight now)

    It's puzzleing me too. I guess I need to read up on history more, but it seems an odd reason when most people can't actually be bothered to vote for the government they want in the first place...

    Oh, I sit in the - I don't care whether you have them or not really - camp. I lived in the States for a while, I didn't feel the urge to need a gun. But then on the other hand in the UK I grew up on a farm with guns around too.

    So call me big chief fence sitter.
