    Seeing as these GOP politicians love to invoke Ronald Reagan, perhaps instead of posing with dildos..I mean guns, they ought to be following Reagan's sage advice on gun control:

    “Every year an average of 9,200 Americans are murdered by handguns. This level of violence must be stopped."

    Later Reagan joined fellow former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford in writing a letter to the Boston Globe in which they backed a ban on assault rifles. “While we recognize that assault weapon legislation will not stop all assault weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals,” the presidents wrote.

    a little over 9000 murders by guns in a country with a population over 320 million? eh, I can live with that in order to maintain second amendment rights. And I don't even own a gun.

    Nor do you own any history books, evidently. The US population was not 320 million during the Reagan years. And the number of gun deaths has increased since then.

    But why should any number in the thousands be acceptable? And much higher per capita than any other industrialized democracy? You may feel that the US has thousands of lives to throw away to gun violence, but I do not, nor do our allies.

    Seriously?! That's your argument? icon_lol.gif

    Per FBI data homicides where the murder weapon was a fire arm has decreased from 10,129 in 2007 to 8583 in 2011 while the population increased from 301.23 million to 311.7 million

    In 2011 the population of the US was 311.7 million and there were 8583 gun related murders.

    I can still live with that considering we lived with 32,479 traffic related fatalities in the same year. Why isn't there an outcry for stricter driver's license control? NOTE: I AM NOT AGAINST BACKGROUND CHECKS. THEY SHOULD BE MANDATORY FOR ALL GUN SALES.

    History books? Gramps, you might try moving into the 21st century and checkout the stats on US government websites.

    Did a bit more digging. Reagan made that statement in a 1991 editorial in the NYT after he was out of office - not during the "Reagan Years." From 9200 in the early 90s to 8583 in 2011 appears to be a drop in gun related homicides (6.7%) despite a population increase (23.2%) (even with the "new" math). Seems you need to dust off your history books.

    Nicely researched and well-written response.

    Something tells me you wouldn't be quite so philosophical about it if Islamist extremists were gunning down 9000 American citizens every year.

    Nor your ridiculous statement equating road deaths to gun deaths.

    That's all you got Art? Out of all the data I present, that's your response? Speaks volumes...

    You can't argue the numbers.

    ^
    Your "argument" appears to be that "Mortality is 100%", which while being perfectly true, isn't particularly insightful.

    While that's true, homicide is not the only way people are killed with guns, and the numbers you're giving a bit on the low side if you're interested in counting all gun-related deaths in the United States. According to the CDC, there were 33,636 deaths attributable to guns in 2013, which is 10.6 for every 100,000 people. Most countries that are considered "developed" by U.S. standards have 3 or fewer gun-related deaths per 100,000 people.

    In my opinion, there is no reason why civilians should be allowed to purchase guns that are automatic and can fire round after round after round. As the NY Times recently wrote, "No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation." Cars, while responsible for many, many deaths, are already regulated to the Nth degree, while guns are subject to comparatively little regulation. There is no reason by people purchasing guns should not be subject to background checks and other commonsense measures to reduce gun violence.

    As far as photoshopping politicians to look like they're holding dildos instead of guns, I say great. The world could use some more sex positivity and more orgasms, as well as more laughs. Thanks for sharing.

    More often than not it's the people behind the wheel of the car, not the car, that are responsible for vehicular related deaths. Same as guns. So yes, we should be just as concerned with those deaths. Cars don't kill people. People kill people.

    I went with homicide numbers because that's what was brought up by another poster. From what I've read more than half of that 33,363 number are suicides. The others are probably listed as accidental although I haven't looked into the breakdown. Most people when talking about gun violence and deaths are concerned about homicides; otherwise, they would be up in arms about gun control after every suicide but they aren't. It's only after gun related murders do you get the up roar.

    Also, I have no problem with background checks and waiting periods and required gun safety courses. I'm not against gun control.
