Somebody should explain these statistics to me.
Why aren't all of the criminals in countries like the UK, Sweden, Australia, illegally acquiring a bunch of guns and hunting down the defenseless, law abiding populace?
Why is the US ranked 4th in the number of murders with firearms? Why aren't our guns protecting us?
Full list of available countries. Murders with firearms statistics - countries compared - NationMaster.
Why isn't the murder rate higher than 4.2/100,000?
Ok, well, let's extrapolate this all using the population of the UK since i listed that compared to the US. According to the 2010 census, the UK had 62,262,000 citizens. Roughly 1/5 of the US population. Why did 668 times more people die in the US from guns?
Why is gun violence much more prevalent in the US compared to pretty much any other developed nation?
And again, why aren't all of the criminals illegally getting guns in these countries and wreaking havoc? It'd be so easy, right?

Likely has something to do with this.
The U.S. stands almost entirely alone among developed nations that lack universal health care.
No surprise the gun toting bat shit crazy conservatives come out after this tradegy as confirmation of their views of more guns.
Gotta wonder if the authorities knew about these and were monitoring them from a distance. Feds might have instructed the locals to bring them all in....the hard decisions might not necessarily be just about possibly violating only the 2nd amendment

beaumont still pissed his "Bath" defense was beat down.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
I like how you wrapped quotes around Bath for absolutely no relevant reason
I like how you are still pissed because your "Bath" defense was beat down.

Congrats on winning in this thread and all of Wells too.
But perhaps the most important outcome of the Dunblane massacre was the change in gun laws in the UK. Shortly after the tragedy a campaign was launched for tighter gun controls and in 1997 it was granted making it illegal to buy or possess a handgun in the UK

Can't tell if serious
