Every once in a while we get new tax laws because folks have figured ways around the old laws. What, we should stop trying to collect taxes?
Nobody says we are going to solve the problem, but can we significantly lessen it? Many countries have.

Many countries are starting from a different point. For example, they aren't in a situation where it is estimated there are more guns than people in their country. What do you do then when guns outnumber people? Those bad guns could stage a coup and take over the country!!

But seriously - what? It is one thing to work from a position where there is far less guns than people...can slowly pare them down even further over time. But you guys? Nah. It isn't happening, you've reached critical mass.

Should be easy enough. While you are tamping down your powder, I'll just use the business end of the bayonet on mine to put you down, and then I'll have TWO MUSKETS!!!! Muhahaha - should be ready for a drone fight then!

Haha, well we try.

With those numbers, one has to remember that the US has 10x our population.

It's easier to find per 100,000.
Canada 0.72 - Homicide (2018) - US 4.46
Canada 1.40 - Suicide (2018) - US 7.32

Per citizen (like I said) or per 100,000 citizens (your figures), the US looks pretty third world.

I think the golden statistic under strict gun controls is the big reduction in suicides. It does make sense less guns probably translates into less suicides but then we're still doing nothing about our mental illness problem. The stigma related to it and limited treatment options especially for those with limited access or finances.

Tip of the day!


You can be charged with second degree murder (...a Watson filing) should you kill somebody while you are driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, street racing, etc.

My personal fave is getting hit by someone when you're under the influence then getting arrested for DWI. Almost happened to me but I think middle aged white privilege stepped in and they said "it wasn't your fault so just be more careful next time".

And I see you're still smarting from my Captain Obvious comment to you as I've noted you've tried to work it in to a few of your posts - I felt now is the time to let you know it was me who made that comment, though you've attributed it to another member already which privately amused me.

Thanks for explaining that to me! Sometimes the meaning of lyrics are not obvious, and I am a bit of a literalist.

You are not the first to use the C.O. comment; I use it on my wife often!
I don't think you are saying it isn't often applicable on this forum?

Smarting!!! Couldn't you just say 'perturbed'?

That does occur sometimes, but at least you weren't the primary cause of the accident.

Nothing illegal about that, unless you are in California. Too bad for you.

People in the free states can legally manufacture their own guns.
