    Yeah, this doesn't counter the basic facts laid out in the article referenced in the OP at all. You understand that, right?

    I quite agree.
    Some people are just not quite rational about certain things. One of my sons is a golf nut, must own 1/2 dozen expensive putters, convinced that each new one he buys will take strokes off his game.

    And yes, i do understand that firearms are a LOT more dangerous than putters.

    Heh, in my experience quite a lot of people are quite irrational about quite a lot of things. Guns are merely one of the more pernicious examples of such irrationality.

    Oh well...

    Cheers.

    This isn't a great big secret. And with every mass shooting gun makers and sellers and the NRA gets richer and more powerful. Why wouldn't they facilitate making war on Americans. It's perfectly legal.

    Those are polls based on the rabid gun control David Hemenway's Harvard study, which is connected and receives funding from the Joyce Foundation. The Joyce Foundation attempted to manipulate the Supreme Court regarding gun control while Obama was the director from 1994-2002. One of their antics involved paying the Chicago-Kent Law Review $84,000 for publishing issues with articles that were anti-individual rights to bear arms.

    These biased and inaccurate surveys are internet surveys that pay opt-in internet users to answer questions. These Internet surveys are limited to internet users and those willing to take a poll. Equally as inaccurate are the in-person surveys because very few people would tell a person who contacted them the truth about their guns.

    The actual data, who is buying guns, who owns guns, concealed carry permits, etc. all contradict these gun control slanted surveys.

    That doesn't show me congressmen being bribed as Paris claimed.

    Show me evidence of the NRA bribing one of them.

    If you earn your living from the gun industry...Congrats!
    If you don't then your bragging is idiotic.

    I am pretty certain that presenting data from the The National Instant Criminal Background Check System database, with no personal comment, is not bragging.
