remind me again which state hasn't had any gun problems in 50 years. OH YEAH TEXAS. If a criminal wants to kill innocent people with a gun then they can. But when it comes to civilians, how do they protect themselves?? If a car can kill people then does that become a weapon too? Why not ban cars? They cause more fatalities than guns by far.

That's because they know the consequences. Texas will fry your ass. No sitting in prison for 50 years

are you seriously suggesting that before a criminal commits a crime he stops and thinks, "maybe jail isn't fun." If that was the case then Im sure the US would be crime free.

No. I said "fry". As in kill. So it doesn't matter if jail is "fun" or not. They know that they will pay and have no chance of seeing anything again. I did my senior paper on the Death Penalty. The statistics prove that it deters. I am not saying banning guns is the answer.

Kennesaw Georgia: It's MANDATORY for every head of household to own and maintain a gun, and guess what goes on there? People going on rampages? Crazy wild-west shootouts? Nope.

25 years of ZERO murders of all kinds is what's going on over there.

population less the 30k. New Zealand, Australia has hundred of towns that size with zero murder rates.
I like the way the only decent footnotes in the wikipedia article point out that there was "a careful analysis of the data did not show that guns reduce crime" yet its only the most right wing properganda media touting it a success. Science vs blind beliefs. Walk away, no proof here.

You know how the lack of gun crime is made up for there? Knives. And knives are far worse to be attacked with for two reasons = they hurt A LOT more, and are much harder to defend yourself against.

lol? its much easier to block a knife attack than a bullet... and while a knife may be more painful a bullet will do much, much more damage

lol? you can hit a gun anywhere. you can't hit the blade.

And no, knives do far more damage far more often in common crime.

I want to have the freedom to not own a gun and not have to be worried about getting shot if I go outside. Because, last time I checked I live in America and not in the Middle East where people have to fight for their lives everyday.

.......I just said that there has been no murders with or with the use of firearms, and you're saying you'd be worried about getting shot?

Wtf is with your logic?
