Re: Pro-gun article

See if you can guess what I'm inferring with this story:

27 dead, 109 injured in knife attack on Kunming railway station

A group of knife-wielding men dressed in black attacked Kunming Railway Station last night. At least 27 people were killed and 109 injured.

Online postings by witnesses said the men began to hack passers-by “crazily” with long knives shortly after 9pm. The attack started outside the station and continued to the ticket hall.

Gunshots were heard and Xinhua said “several predators were shot dead” by police.


Also, expect Western news agencies to sanitize this report by using the local term 'Uyghers'.

MD, I always advocate being vegan or at least vegetarian. But, no, that wasn't what I was inferring.

Hey, you don't NEED steak knives, especially if those unhealthy meat products are banned.

If it would save even ONE life, we should do without those unnecessarily large knives.

Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware

National rates of gun homicide and other violent gun crimes are strikingly lower now than during their peak in the mid-1990s, paralleling a general decline in violent crime, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of government data. Beneath the long-term trend, though, are big differences by decade: Violence plunged through the 1990s, but has declined less dramatically since 2000.
Compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49% lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72%) over two decades.
Nearly all the decline in the firearm homicide rate took place in the 1990s; the downward trend stopped in 2001 and resumed slowly in 2007. The victimization rate for other gun crimes plunged in the 1990s, then declined more slowly from 2000 to 2008. The rate appears to be higher in 2011 compared with 2008, but the increase is not statistically significant. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall also dropped in the 1990s before declining more slowly from 2000 to 2010, then ticked up in 2011.
Despite national attention to the issue of firearm violence, most Americans are unaware that gun crime is lower today than it was two decades ago. According to a new Pew Research Center survey, today 56% of Americans believe gun crime is higher than 20 years ago and only 12% think it is lower.
Looking back 50 years, the U.S. gun homicide rate began rising in the 1960s, surged in the 1970s, and hit peaks in 1980 and the early 1990s. (The number of homicides peaked in the early 1990s.) The plunge in homicides after that meant that firearm homicide rates in the late 2000s were equal to those not seen since the early 1960s.1 The sharp decline in the U.S. gun homicide rate, combined with a slower decrease in the gun suicide
rate, means that gun suicides now account for six-in-ten firearms deaths, the highest share since at least 1981.

Re: Pro-gun article

i think moderate and sensible gun owners and gun rights advocates should push the gun companies to not advertise assault rifles under apocalypic and end-of-the-world fear mongering sensationalism.

i know rat is playing it up but sadly ive seen far worse real advertising.

S&W is one of my favorite companies, trying to track down a specific S&W revolver for the wife now.

I saw no "apocalypic" themes in that ad at all.

Just because people are scared because it looks like a big, killing machine doesn't mean they're only used for Zombie invasions and mowing down crowds of people.

But, dude, it was an 'assault weapon' and the picture was monochromatic! That's like BLACK WAR FATIGUES!

RUN!
