    You are 36,000 times more likely to be killed by a car than killed by an accidental discharge of a firearm.


    there are 130,000+ accidental deaths in the US, only ~600 are due to accidental discharge of a firearm.
    We cannot survive without cars, we can survive just fine without guns. Only 600? When they are unnecessary to begin with. That doesn't include the other how many thousand?

    92% of mass shootings occur in gun safe zones. Not a fucking coincidence people.
    And how many would occur there if those shooters did not have guns?

    so why allow them to have them? why don't we find out if you are crazy before selling you a gun instead of after?

    a child is

    70 times more likely to be die from drinking cleaning solution or other poison than being shot accidently.

    60 times more likely to die from car accident than accidental shooting.
    Except we cannot get rid of those cleaning solutions or cars, we can restrict who has a gun. Your argument is one only an idiot would make.

    Hunting appears to be for people that should not be around guns. jmo
    He should be charged. Who the fuck loads their gun when getting ready to go hunting? That is the last thing you do before going.

    How many lives would be saved if guns were allowed for law-abiding citizens there?

    Also, ever heard of a suicide bomber? It's not that hard to make a vest if you don't have a gun. Happens all the time in the Middle East.

    Firearms ARE allowed for law-abiding citizens.

    Well, I've certainly heard of suicide bombers. Tell me, how many Americans have been killed on U.S. soil by suicide bombers over the past 10 years?

    Wait a couple years after Obama's unveiled refugees get settled in. Instead of suicide bombs they use guns and cars and trucks and knives. Does not matter what they use the result is the same. PEOPLE DIE
