There is no question but that if we had strict gun control in this nation that number would be a lot lower. You can argue, dispute and act all offended by this statement if you want, but we all know it is true.

Really? Russia has very strict gun control, yet a homicide rate twice that of the US and less than half the people.

So why do you say "there is no question..."?

Wrong.

Russia Homicide Rate 2020: 4.7 per 100,000 people
U.S. Homicide Rate 2020: 6.5 per 100,000 people

Since Russia enacted moderate gun control laws in 2013, the homicide rate fell from 10.1 to 4.7 per 100,000 people.

You just proved your own argument wrong.

#6 - Actually Russia's homicide rate in 2020 (latest numbers available) was 7.7

www.statista.com

And yes, it surged in 2020 which most sociologists attribute to a covid affected economy. But even that considered, Russia has a higher homicide rate than the US.

"Since Russia enacted moderate gun control laws in 2013, the homicide rate "

If homicide rates fell even as gun laws were loosened, you just proved your own argument wrong.

Only gonna get a lot worse if the Dems don't put the hammer down and lock up our traitorous cult & their leader, and get a grip on the country politically. Time is running out.

The number is incomplete. We still don't count the number of innocent brown people around the world our elected politicians allow our military to murder around the world in the name of security.

Liar.

That's Homicides and ATTEMPTED Homicides was 7.7 in the thousands. Not Homicide rate per 100,000.

How stupid are you? Can't you even read a damn graph?

I guess the pointing out the gun thing must bother you eh?
You are 100 times less likely to use a firearm for self-defense than shoot someone in an emotional hissy fit. That is a fact.

Shooting someone to death is the favorite method in the USA. Guns are sold as a problem solver.

Here is the shopping list of how firearms are used in the US:

Someone scares you shoot em

Someone makes you angry shoot em

Someone makes you jealous shoot em

Someone disobeys you shoot em

Someone disagrees with you shoot em

#14 it's a dishonest statistic. To ignore all other forms of homicide is dishonest. Deliberately so.

#15 Somebody mentioned gun control and its supposed ineffectiveness, so I looked up the gun homicide rate.

#16 | Posted by snoofy at 2021-09-28 12:15 PM | Reply

And ignored the overall homicide rate.

Nobody is ignoring anything.

Well, maybe you're ignoring the arc of the discussion.

Something like 2/3 of US murders are done with handguns. Followed by other types of guns. Since you brought it up. www.statista.com

B.S. I am talking about the majority of homicides... I repeat firearms are the fave. Lions share etc. You keep niggling about the chump change of homicide methods as if it changes the argument I'm making.

Statistics demonstrate that having all that hyper-efficient self-protection apparatus in your possession often drives you to eat your own... like guppies in a fishbowl... so to speak.

I'm thinking it has to do with laziness and efficiency. Firearms make it easy to punch a fatal hole in someone with the least amount of effort... close up...suuure... from a distance...just as good.
