You must be mistaken. The stump must have been indoors, the only place Joe thinks guns have ever been allowed."What does gun violence really cost?"
Well it cost a stump in Jocal's backyard and a very scared Meth head who shit his pants running away from Vigilante Joe.
Not sure why this was posted in the thread about Canada's ban on battlefield .22's.Getting back to the OP;
Canada gunshot death rate - 1.94 per 100,000 people
USA gunshot death rate - 12.21 per 100,000 people.
Now who did you say had the right idea?
The thing about that last one is, as this thread has repeatedly shown, that the USA has an unremarkable suicide rate compared to other developed nations and most of those "gun deaths" are suicides.
Such ignorance. One only has to google Japan, and suicide in Japan, for five minutes to understand there can no fair comparison between the suicides in these different cultures.The thing about that last one is, as this thread has repeatedly shown, that the USA has an unremarkable suicide rate compared to other developed nations and most of those "gun deaths" are suicides.
Just more gungrabby number padding, meaningless to anyone who knows that some of the strictest gun control laws in the world don't prevent Japan from having a much higher suicide rate than we have.
Well, OK, how about former British colonies?Such ignorance. One only has to google Japan, and suicide in Japan, for five minutes to understand there can no fair comparison between the suicides in these different cultures.
Report just in: You're far, far more likely to die of gun violence in a state that voted for Trump than a state that didn't. When it's >100% more likely and a couple dozen white kids are slaughtered in tenneflorabamassippi, the dam will break. Not before then.

The newest numbers show that the U.S. rate is 44 members a day. The government tends to group numbers by period, for instance, from 2010 to 2016, which blurs the facts. It is still a difficult number to reckon with.Is the suicide rate among US veterans as high as Japan's rate?

About 20 veterans commit suicide a day, and nearly three quarters are not under VA care.4
Those are pretty astounding figures, and it's also very interesting that 3/4 of veterans are not under VA care. I know that modern veterans are treated much differently than veterans of my era. For example, Afghanistan vets are rated before they leave the service and are instructed to register with the VA.i
On 2019, that figure stood at 17 members per day. In 2001, it was 14.4 per day. Today, a whopping 25% of American suicides are veterans.
The military's emphasis on personal responsibility keeps many distressed veterans from seeking help, write Anna Richardson and Sarah Roxburgh.www.wbur.org
Are Veterans at a Higher Risk for Suicide?The suicide rate for veterans is 1.5 times higher than that of the general population.4
Comparing the rate among female veterans to non-Veteran adult women, the rate is 2.5 times higher.5 From 2001 to 2014, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) reports an increased suicide rate among women using VA health services from 14.4 per 100,000 to 17.3 per 100,000.6
Suicide rates are especially high among older veterans. According the VA, in 2016, about 58% of all veterans committed suicide were among Veterans age 55 years or older.4
A major, yet preventable health problem in the U.S. is suicide. The suicide rate for veterans is 1.5 times higher than that of the general population. In spite of these grim realities, veterans have plenty of reason for hope. The VA has doubled its efforts to address the challenges that veterans...americanaddictioncenters.org
Such is ignorance. Are you not the proud recipient of a National Merit Scholarship endowment?Is the suicide rate among US veterans as high as Japan's rate?
The data show while the per capita ownership of guns has increased, and the rate of suicide has increased, the percentage of suicides with guns has decreased from the 1990s to 2006, then leveled off.
The percentage of suicides with guns dropped from a high of 61.1 % in 1990 to a low of 47.5% in 2018.

Philadelphia gas station owner hires heavily armed guards to protect business: 'We are tired of this nonsense'A Philadelphia gas station owner fed up with incessant crime threatening his employees and customers hired heavily armed security guards to watch over his business.www.fox5ny.com
"A Philadelphia gas station owner fed up with incessant crime threatening his employees and customers hired heavily armed security guards to watch over his business.
Neil Patel, operator of a Karco gas station at Broad and Clearfield streets in North Philadelphia, recruited Pennsylvania S.I.T.E Agents clad with Kevlar vest and AR-15s or shotguns.
"They are forcing us to hire the security, high-level security, state level," Patel told FOX 29. "We are tired of this nonsense; robbery, drug trafficking, hanging around, gangs." "
This really needed a whole new thread?With all the states allowing right to carry (23) without permits
We should have a fun year breaking all previous records
and were off to a good start!
We're Only One Day into 2023 and Already This Many Americans Have Been ShotView attachment 564690
Across the United States 193 people were shot on New Years Day, with 56 of them dying, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive, which records shootings across the country.

Actually, I think it was jocal who started trying to convince everyone that suicide is gun violence by calling it self murder.Or in Tom's inimitable styling, self-murder.
yes.This really needed a whole new thread?
We already have a thread about self murders using guns.
I used the term ONCE. You weaponized it, mocking the gun suicides... which you also facilitiate. You are a piece of work, IMO.
(Dogballs goes full gibberish)
I go along with gungrabby ideas like battlefield .22's and self murder and people get upset at me, not the grabbers who originated the ideas. It's almost like they don't really believe that banning guns will solve suicides and they don't really believe that .22's are suitable militia weapons. Weird.
