Seen on a discussion about firearms-control:
“Homicides by firearm per 100,000 (a sample) :
Of course the gun-grabbers don’t discuss murder-rates.
There go a lot of the gun-grabbers’ arguments. Instead of USA/UK = 52 we get 4 and USA/Canada goes from 6 to 3. What would the UK numbers be if they shared a border with Mexico and had five times their population? If the presence of 300million firearms were a significant factor in homicide why isn’t USA off the chart? Hint: firearms are not the problem. Who are the extremists? The gun-grabbers. They introduce irrelevant data into an emotionally charged discussion of safety. Murder is murder whether it’s by firearms or not. We could drastically reduce murder by baseball-bat by banning bats, but should we? Won’t a person angry enough to use a bat use a limb of a tree, a piece of lumber or a leg of a table? Yes, obviously. So it is silly to regulate firearms out of existence to fight evil.
