    Really?

    Well no ****. Statistically, not many people get shot and of those that get shot a very high percentage are up to criminal activity. If you have a gun and are a criminal, then yea youre pretty much at a high risk of getting shot.

    So Charles Branas's team at the University of Pennsylvania analysed 677 shootings over two-and-a-half years to discover whether victims were carrying at the time, and compared them to other Philly residents of similar age, sex and ethnicity. The team also accounted for other potentially confounding differences, such as the socioeconomic status of their neighbourhood.

Not once in the article did it mention that the study was about law-abiding citizens and I'm willing to bet the overwhelming vast majority of Philly citizens that were studied were the law-breaking idiots who got shot by police or other law breaking idiots. And while there may be studies that show peaceful folk getting shot and/or killed because they carry a firearm...this one ain't it Sherlock. Try again.

    It wasn't the semi-auto weapons used. It wasn't even the high capacity mags. It takes me approximately 2-3 seconds to execute a magazine change in my .45, & I'm not even exceptionally quick. Given enough mags, and a modicum of practice - a simple pistol could have done the same damn thing.

    You wanna prevent this type of crime with its massive casualties? Remove ALL firearms from the planet. Good luck with that.



    Again, crazy people are crazy.
    Or arm everyone.

    And you knew it would. I have to say thanks to both sides for keeping the argument civil. You know this subject is right and left for the most part, you're either for or against. I will say this, maybe if more people acted in a manor like our members have in this thread we wouldn't have so many of these issues at the forefront of our society.

    It'd be nice if people actually talked about their problems instead of taking their problems out on the innocence.

    In almost every one of his pics, you can see that he is, in fact, a few cans short of a six pack.

    Funny part is - I'm left on most ****. Yet, when it comes to firearms, I sound like a Republican.
