Is this a sign of the beginning of the end of America's first 200 years of democracy?
More firearm homicides were carried out by 10 to 19 year old Americans in metropolitan areas than all the other ages
Guns aren't the problem, but a means to carry out a purpose with ease, accuracy and speed, unfortunately. The parents are responsible for looking after their children making sure they know right from wrong and making decisions accordingly.
More guns equals less crime - and this is proven. That picture is bull$hit, and everyone knows it.
Blame inanimate objects for human failings - and it's evidence of a mental problem.
it has nothing to do with guns , it has everything to do with people only being concerned with their own lives. people in general are now scared of everything , so they will do whatever they want to hide that fear even if it means taking a life. kids are like monkeys, they see, they do. it looks like terroists are doing what they planned on doing, destroying peoples freedom.
There will come a time of trouble such as was not seen since the beginning of the world.
the availability of guns in this country is a problem, but not because we have too many. our national attitude toward gun ownership and the nra have really gotten out of hand. even if you believe that the "maintain a well-regulated militia" phrase in the constitution gives everyone the right to own an ak-47 in case they run into a surly deer, if you believe you're safer you'd best do some research, then change your reason for owning guns.
however, canada, i understand, has more guns per capita than we have, yet their gun deaths are far below ours. so it's not gun ownership, rather it's an attitude that a gun is a good way to resolve an argument or solve a problem.
I don't know what the statistics are as far as where you would find the larger concentration of what kind of firearms. In other words, are there more 9mm semi-auto handguns in the cities than in the country? I'd venture a guess and say that it was so. Then I'd also venture a guess and suggest that, not unlike cars, who taught the one with the gun in his hand how to use it?
When I was 10 I was in charge of cleaning all the guns in the house. I had solvents, rags and rods and could take apart all of the shotguns, rifles and pistols and clean and put them back together -safely. Of course, my father spent a good bit of time training me on how to do this safely - and why I was taking care of these tools. I was also a darn good marksman and still am.
As an adult, I have coached, taught and trained hundreds of young people how to do the same - as well as coaching two young men to the level of Olympic development team. My son and several of his friends just competed in San Antonio winning a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place in different shotgun sports - in their first year. Tens of thousands of rounds of practice have been fired. In one year my son shot over 20,000 targets of practice, and he was one of 30 kids I coached that year. We never even came close to a problem from an accident. We REALLY never have since come close to one of these kids taking his 9 and bustin a cap on a store owner. So it must be the guns, right?
When we finally realize we can't continue with all the politically correct garbage and can once again hold the parents of children responsible for the child's actions (how it was when I was a kid), momas and daddys will all the sudden be a little more interested in poppin out those babies. If daddy isn't there to teach the daughter to drive - how is she going to ever learn how? Then how is she going to teach her daughter when her "husband" is gone too. It is the very same problem with "guns."
Blaming the gun is blinding yourself to responsibility for one's actions, period.
Do you know what comes to mind when i see a kid that age with a gun?LAND OF THE FREE HOME OF THE BRAVE!Why don't you teach her how to sell crack and meth.I'm sure she will do great with the BLOODS and CRYPTS.If your going to post pictures like that don't be suprised that the rest of the world laughs at you and your so called democracy.Personaly i think she would be a great sucide bomber!

In the face of all the killings, murders etc. day after day, year after year where the gun is always a part of the killing scenario there are those who doggedly maintain the notion that guns have no part in the death of innocent men women and children.If people are correct that the gun is not the...

In my opinion on guns is that guns don't kill people people using the gun for the wrong reasons that's what kills people because if you think about it when You put the gun on a table its not going to fire but when you pick the gun up off the table and pull the trigger it will fire What do you think

Given that:1. The US has a very high homicide rate.2. It is possible that killers that can't find a gun will use a different method.3. Some other countries, with low gun ownership rates, have a lower gun homicide rate but a much higher murder rate using other methods.4. If...
