    When are Beta and the rest of the (D)ums going to take on the realy bad guys???

    Goddamn (D)imwits nattering about gun control, when what they should be focused on is stairs. And ladders. And possibly even curbs. And poisons. And cars. And Saran wrap. And neckties. And fire. And depression.

    I mean, look at the data!!




    Motor vehicle accidents, falls, poisoning, suicide, fire, burns, and suicides kill a HELL of a lot more than homicide by firearms.

    So take up the true Boogie Man, you (D)imwits!!

    Crimes are only bad when they are committed by white people.

    That's a hell of a lot of "unintentional poisonings" in the middle age group.

    What the hell does that mean? 3 times as many as people killed in auto accidents?

    That many people die because they ate bad food?

    I am pretty sure the poisonings include overdoses.

    That’s why the mass shootings on the southside of Chicago don’t get talked about. They’re not being perpetrated by nice suburban white kids driving in from Schaumburg.

    Old age and health issues aren't in this chart. Just "accidental" deaths.

    And yes, now that you say drug overdoses are considered accidental poisonings, the chart makes a lot more sense. Damn, the opioid crisis does kill a lot of middle aged people.

    Arguably, the democrats ARE going after the other things as well. They do regulate like hell the auto industry over safety. They have started to sue the hell out of Pharma companies about the opioid crisis.

    Again, to democrats, government can fix all ills, all deaths, all climate problems, all poverty, all bad choices. Just the way they think.

    Regulating to limit every vehicle to 5 mph would save tones of lives and hugely decrease the price of cars.

    No longer need antilock brakes, airbags...basic car, basic engine, basic tires. Tires last forever, helps saving the environment...

    What is "three tied" and "two tied"? Bottom left

    Also dont think suicide or homicide by firearm counts as "unintentional"

    If you were surprised that Jeffery Epstein committed suicide, just imagine how surprised he was.

    Anytime a liberal starts clammering about gun control I ask them how they would feel if cars were banned, since they kill WAY more people than guns do, and they had to turn in their car that they legally bought by a certain date, or they become felons for possessing the car?

    If you listen to the Dems presidential candidates they are already talking about banning cars.

    Most of them would love to ban cars. Fascists, Socialists, and Communists love mass transit because they can control when and where people go places. They hate cars because cars mean independence.

    2017 was the first year gun deaths in the US exceeded car accident deaths. I guess since car drivers need a license, gun owners should as well.

    What a stupid argument. Those stats count suicide you dumbass. It also counts when a cops shoots a guy with a knife. It takes in all gun deaths.

    Cars are not in the constitution and they are not a right. I guess since people are being killed because of words we should start giving licenses so people can use their 1st amendment right? Why not? I guarantee you most homicides could be prevent if people weren't allowed to talk until they got governmental permission.

    Go finish writing your book and leave the big discussions to the adults.
