they should do a worldwide study comparing societies with many guns to overall gun violence within that society versus societies with virtually no gun owners and overall gun violence. I think the results will be quite clear.

It has been done, and there is little or no statistical relationship between the number of guns in civilian hands and the murder rate, as this Harvard Law Review study shows-

http://www.law.harvard.edu/students/orgs/jlpp/Vol30_No2_KatesMauseronline.pdf

Interestingly, Luxembourg, where gun control is quite absolute, and there are almost no civilian guns has the highest murder rate in Western Europe. If guns are prevented from killing people, people kill people anyway.

The only gun problem that America has is that not everyone owns one. But were working on that

"When seconds count, the police are only minutes away." Seems the Phillipinos are a hell of a lot smarter than American Democrats.

More guns= more gun homicides. The non gun owning members of society don't want to live in a country where everyone needs a gun to be safe.

I have been thinking this though and I figured out a way to ensure that every liberal demands that each and every person in America gets a free gun from the government,

Require that you can not own a gun while collecting SS prior to the age of 62, using food stamps, WIC, Unemployment or any other government subsidies. You are also unable to own a gun if you are not paying for your own health insurance.

I bet they start quoting how owning a gun is a Right and how you can not infringe someones rights based on socioeconomic basis.

Went to Chicago just under a year ago, wonderful city. But, just like any major city (I am from northern Minnesota and even I know this rule) you avoid certain parts, and you have nothing to worry about.

America dosen't have a problem with guns, we have a problem with liberal socialists, people on welfare that don't deserve to be, people on foodstamps that don't deserve to be,and basically lazy liberals that will not work ,and want everything for free.

I am living in the city with most guns than any other Cities here in Philippines. Guns are never been a problem here. yes, there are always killings here and there almost every week but those people who got involved in killings are mostly drug dealers, corrupt police officers, gang members, swindlers, and mostly people who did something wrong against their neighbors. I never heard someone entered a cinema and fired an automatic pistol/rifle, or fired his weapon towards students at schools, or any public places. Killings here always have big reasons..... and honestly I don't consider it as a problem. If you are a normal person living with a normal life and being good to your neighbors, you should not concern your self about guns..

I don't understand "Gun Problem" we seem to have an enforcement problem. Criminals with guns and nobody checking them out?

The only gun problem we have here in America is that not everybody own one yet. But were working on that.

Your problem is that not everybody in America wants a gun.

That's your choice but don't try to take my choice from me or anyone else.

the people that do want a gun want it for simple protection, not a big deal is it?

Pro-NRA Americans say we need a lot of guns to fight a possible future tyranny. Yet the Filipinos have lots of guns, but they could not get rid of their Marcos dictatorship using their guns. They knew you can't fight tanks and airplanes using guns. So instead they used huge unarmed demonstrations to get rid of Marcos.

Please stop mentioning Marcos if you have inadequate knowledge... Marcos' time has nothing to do with these gun-owners today...

So you think that they did not have plenty of guns in the time of Marcos? The NRA people keep insisting the second amendment is so we can organize militias to overthrow a future tyranny. How foolish.
