My spouse and I live in a small town about 45 miles west of Ames, Iowa. We were in the midst of a fun evening of trivia and learned that there was a shooting in Ames at a church. 3 people dead including the shooter. This was at a event geared for college students at the church. The Ames community is a tight-knit one so please keep the people of Ames in your prayers. Thanks!

UK has .20 firearm deaths per 100,000 pop.... 2.8 guns per 100 persons.

US has 12.21 firearm deaths p/100,000 pop... 120.5 guns p/100 persons.

So, does/will stricter gun laws also reduce deaths among our population.

Don't understand the purpose of selling assault weapons(dangerous toys)
to the public(except for the extension of one's personal Family Jewels).

Go look at the historical data. Even when the UK had lots of gun availability, their murder/use rate was far lower than ours per capita.

For your edification: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/dec/18/great-gun-control-fallacy-thomas-sowell

Gun control zealots' choice of Britain for comparison with the United States has been wholly tendentious, not only because it ignored the history of the two countries, but also because it ignored other countries with stronger gun control laws than the United States, such as Russia, Brazil and Mexico. All of these countries have higher murder rates than the United States.

You could compare other sets of countries and get similar results. Gun ownership has been three times as high in Switzerland as in Germany, but the Swiss have had lower murder rates. Other countries with high rates of gun ownership and low murder rates include Israel, New Zealand, and Finland.

Guns are not the problem. People are the problem – including people who are determined to push gun control laws, either in ignorance of the facts or in defiance of the facts.

Take out suicides and gang violence and get back to me on those firearm death stats.

I could have really done without the political commentary on this post. Not appreciating those of you that made the choice to hijack the content of my post.

OK Tx1999 ... since you're not interested enough ... I've taken out the 57% US suicides by gun death and will play like none of UK's are suicides(like a good conservative would)... So that leaves 5.25 US vs .20 UK deaths per 100,000 pop... So, 26.25 to 1 is still so crazy.

Does anyone really really need an assault weapon.?. will a large game/deer rifle/bird gun work for most any ones needs, with a 6-10 round 9mm Glock for home protection. Since no longer kill animals, do have 2 hand weapons at home ... one for the boss lady and self.

if the line in the sand is the "need" of something there is a great deal of things i can think of we can start wiping out that are believed to be "protected rights" and not things that are specifically named in the constitution

So you're not confident you can "self protection" without an assault weapon. Gun owners rights for an assault weapon over, perhaps reducing deaths of hundreds if not 1,000s of deaths(which includes children).... Numbers don't lie, but people do though.

Wow An-Cap... that article is a lot about nothing... that's it ! that's what caused the steal, huh?

The Donald also said he won by landslide in GA ... but the Gov. Lt Gov. Sec St. Election Supv., who all voted for The Donald, all said after 3 counts that this was the cleanest elections ever.

The summer before the 2020 election, the then Potus said if he loses, it was because he got cheated. Arizona(red state) by the way, also had multiple counts and last one counted by red participants... came up with nothing. So if there was any fraud in a Donald election, it would only be the liberals bringing it. None of those Crackers that sacked the Capital 1/6(or cousins) would've done any thing like the AZ woman was accused of.

No one needs a car that goes over 10 MPH. Slow cars will get you from A to B just fine.
