Its a well established fact that every time gun ownership does down crime goes up. Anywhere in the world.
Umm yeah it is....
Yea they use other weapons. More brutal and painful then getting shot
Yeah I love stuff like this; whoever thought this one up must be thinking "We all know criminals can't reload a weapon, if we make the magazine smaller they'll be able to shoot less people".
On Sunday December 17, 2012, 2 days after the CT shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his X-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater. The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming. It’s like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant! <br />
Now aren’t you wondering why this isn’t a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting?<br />
There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened. <br />
Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal next week. Just thought you’d like to know.<br />
According to reports, the knocking turned into banging, and the boy rushed his siblings upstairs and grabbed his father’s handgun. <br />
While at the top of the stairs, he saw an armed man break into the house through the front door. <br />
Without hesitating, he fired at the intruder, wounding him. According to authorities, the intruder never fired a shot. <br />
The unidentified 37-year-old man was taken to a hospital for treatment and is expected to survive, the Associated Press reported. The man’s name is being withheld until he is booked into jail on counts of aggravated assault and burglary. Police say they still do not know the man’s intentions. <br />
Police are still looking for the woman, who got away.<br />
“The police and indeed our community does not ever want to see a situation where a teenager of that age has to take a weapon to protect his family … but this young man did exactly what he should have done,” said Officer James Holmes.<br />
When one Oklahoma girl found herself in a tough spot, she took matters into her own hands.<br />
Police say the Calera 12-year-old used the family's gun to shoot and injure an alleged home invader on Wednesday, KFOR reports.<br />
"And what we understand right now, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door," said the Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden, according to News9.<br />
Police say the girl contacted her mother, who instructed her to take the weapon, hide in a closet and phone police.<br />
"I see a lot of girls on TV that get their house broken into and they turn up missing and just knowing that that could have happened to me. "
Dont forget to raise their pay.
None of the mass shooters carried only 1 weapon. Neither did they show up with just 1 clip per weapon. Most of them didn't own the guns they used. Does anyone really think that keeping abiding citizens from owning guns is going to keep criminals and whack jobs from getting them illegally? And shooting and killing more people? <br />
That's not up to you to decide, just like you can't tell a woman she can't have an abortion. Besides, criminals get guns illegally and do more damage with them than the average, law-abiding citizen. Smh
So, given the total number of gun deaths for the whole year, as posted by the Gun Violence Archive on 31st. December 2015, was 52,252, and the number of cases listed as Defensive Use was only 1,259, or just 2.4049% of cases, do you think that proves that Americans are protecting themselves with guns? Here in Britain, we have the world's strictest gun control. According to some of the posters on this page, we should be the most violent society in the world. We have very low gun or violent crime rates. Check them out:
I think it speaks volumes that the majority of posters on this page can't spell!
