Yes, the very true and REAL world the NRA doesn’t want people thinking about.
Must be Chicago.
Consider how many people drive a car vs. how many own a gun and then of often they’re used.
Yes we would, because Chicago, Los Angeles and Detroit would still have gun crime and they have the highest level of gun control in the country.
It’s a cheerless commentary on our society and its subcultures that murders are so casually committed and accepted. Equally sad is that everyone has become so inured to murders that we treat them with such nonchalance.
word, Mr. Rogers. kudos from Lady Aberlin & King Friday XIII.
That is accurate. I wondered why the death of 3 in Boston got so much more coverage than did West, Texas. to extrapolate using “Mexican-Americans” and “dirt poor farmers” instead of “young Black people” and there’s the answer.
Ms Ima, have you not graduated from kindergarten YET? The name calling is so childish!
Motor vehicle crashes are known as “accidents” for a reason. There are no “accidents” when someone goes into a school and starts shooting little kids.
So if you die in an ACCIDENTAL explosion, it’s okay?I have a better equation for you-Boston— caused by a foreigner (Islamic angle; great for controversy, good ratings- hype it up!)Texas— caused by an American company (possible negligence in a state with lax regulations; might make business look bad- bury it!)
…yeah…those …“official reports”…always “totally”…objective and unbiased…yup…yup…
Denver, Detroit, Montebello, Pico Rivera, Medford, Houston, Nashville, Seattle, dozens of cities every day see gun homicides in the U.S.. Interesting that it’s actually the control of SHORT barrel pistols, semi-auto especially, with large magazine capacity, like in the Giffords shooting that DO do far more damage every day, not “assault rifles”, and it IS those handguns, not “rifles” that NRA has spent most of the last 20 years “defending”, NOT “hunting weapons”. Well, unless you consider gang bangers, drug dealers, and folks like Zimmerman “hunters”. Hmmm, I guess if you actually look at the Zimmerman case, he was.
That plastic grin on his face says it all. He looks like a Chucky doll.
How do you know that guns are designed to kill people? Did you design the original gun and all guns afterwards? Or are you spouting what your intellectual superiors told you to spout after giving you your lefty brand Kool Aid?
