That last sentence sure helps, haha. My apologies. Like I said, it's very trying.

Hey no worries. I love good discussion.

Other than the time I spent in Vietnam I have never felt like I needed a gun to defend myself

Obviously not .Uncle Sam highly disapproves of service  members engaging in shootouts with the local civilians . That guy was in his car and two blocks away before I even registered what had happened.Having a gun may have have given him just the reason to shoot me too

slate.

 

slate can be very entertaining! about as entertaining as fox news anyways...

 

and it's always there, anytime, whenever i want to indulge in faux-high-brow secondhand prurience.

From the abstract of the study itself: "However, there was no significant correlation (P = .10) between guns per capita per country and crime rate." I always find that most interesting. In fact, if one were to peruse OECD data, it would show things like how much higher crimes against the person are in some countries vs. the US, such as Scotland, England, and Sweden (rapes are several times higher in Sweden vs. the US for instance.)

Stop denying climate change. Get on the right side of history.

Hard to believe it still happens in progressive multicultural society. .Swedes are raping women immigrants. Those damned savages haven't evolved since the viking age. Sweden apparently needs more feminists and now, before patriarchy ruins it.

I found this surprising so started researching it. Now this is just a quick trip through google mind you but everything I've read states that immigrant men are raping women in highly disproportionate numbers in Sweden

I can confirm the opposite is happening. MN just legalized sound suppressors.

This is fantastic news.

I might have to construct one, after paying the $200 NFA tax of course, for my .22.

The article you posted lists several studies that are unreadable without a subscription. The first study I was able to read attempts to measure gun laws and their impact on firearm fatalities by state. They include suicide, which invariably skews the results (unless you're proposing that gun control be implemented to control suicide). It also ignores the demographic component of firearm deaths within each state, and where in the state those deaths are occurring. It lumps everyone together. You don't need a Poisson regression to figure out what is driving a large portion of gun homicides in the country.

I assure you, in my house, someone breaking in would never hear the shot anyway.

It was kinda cool to be at the range and having multiple people shooting, and you could have conversations without hearing protection.
