Or do you conveniently ignore that Cho killed all those people at Va Tech with handguns? Anyone that villifies semi automatic weapons is ignorant of the reality of modern firearms and is only buying into the media and political hype. The fact is that in Newtown and Aurora, the shooters are the problem, not the weapon. They could easily have killed as many and possibly more with 2 glocks.
I know some things are hard for you to believe (like what Viagra was developed for and what it became LOL), but just because YOU lack the capacity to grasp a concept does not make the concept any less valid.

Some lady got killed on her way to soccer practice ???
He could have smothered her with a pillow while she'll slept, and for your side to not be hypocritical you'd have to speak out about the need for pillow control.
But, the fact that we only hear knee-jerk reactions about negative gun related incidents and never car/baseball bat/hammer related incidents creates questions about the motivation, or agenda, that fuels the hypocrisy.

You talk about the mean gun owners always messing with the stats??
Like the grabbers are the only ones competent enough to put together a sensible argument, right?
Well, as long as we are on The United Kingdom, why don't we talk about the stat you must have just forgot to mention, huh?
You are advocating for some sort of a ban, and you brought up the UK, so please, tell us how their ban WORKED.
Please show us, oh wise one, I'll make it simple for you, they had a lower murder rate BEFORE their ban, they have a lower murder rate AFTER their ban. The murder rate actually went up after the ban, but then went down to where it was previously, in other words it had NO EFFECT ON THEIR MURDER RATE.
Stop pretending the ban had something to do with them having a lower murder rate.
Edited to add:
It seems you go through all types of statistics to post the things you do, yet you seem to leave some important things out.
Surely you have noted that the US murder rate has dropped 50% in the last two decades, almost like something already was in effect to curb the violence, yet you never mention it...hmmm.
I mean every category, rifle deaths for instance, blunt object, dropping every year, and no mention, again...hmm.
Almost makes it seem like you're an agenda driven hack.

The UK has a far more violent crime rate than the United States PERIOD. And these numbers are compared by the 2 governments own stats. You can nit-pick the numbers all you want but it's not going to be enough to erase the 3.5x difference in violent crimes. Not to mention that people in the UK can't even walk to the store without 50 cameras watching them. Even with banning guns and big brother watching your every move. They still have more crime and especially violent crime than we do. Doesn't sound like a fair trade off.
And let's stop the BS.
You guys want to ban all guns for the most part. This silly "assault weapons ban" makes no sense in this crusade to end gun violence when they account for less than 3% of all gun crimes. It's like trying to put out a house fire with a glass of water.
