Great response, awesome. Typical of the gun nutter thought process.

Nothing.
Aw, jealousy and envy are such terrible emotions.

Here, maybe this will help.

You guys are the cats meow, you really are.

You jump on ONE piece of debatable data that has NOTHING to do with the gun homicide rate in the US and you are doing nude victory laps around the pool.

The anger is not in me my pedigree chum, its in the thousands of people who have had a loved one affected by gun violence in the US. And the US has MORE gun violence by far than any civilised country.

But you guys dont even want to be part of the debate!!! Why not?

Well, for me it's because I like it here.

I can guarantee that I've as much hands-on experience with American gun violence as anybody on this forum, and I am not in the least inclined to limit the access of law abiding citizens to firearms.

It's not the dozen or so ICU nurses I work with daily who have carry permits, the doctors that I shoot with ( some of whom probably voted for Obama) or the guys that hang around the local gun store and tell lies that are getting shot.

It is either recidivist gang bangers, many of whom I've worked on multiple times, and who have long since forfeit their right to firearms ownership due to felonious conduct, or poor unfortunates who flinch when they try to kill themselves who make up the majority of my business.

Very uncommon to see a "citizen" get perforated.

Almost all those guns are, or were once, legally owned firearms.

Again smart ass and meaningless posts from the gun nutters but still no answer to my question about the Dickey Amendment.

Anyone want to take a stab at answering?

Why do conservative members of Congress want to ensure no federal research money is spent linking gun deaths to gun availability?

is the thought that if there were no legal weapons that there wouldn't be any illegal ones eventually?

WHY DOES THIS AMENDMENT EXIST??????

Over to you gun nutters . . . .
Do you really think that people whom you are addressing are going to respond, given your tone?

Yes, radical I know but would you have what it would take to carry it through?

I think citing his tone as a reason not to answer is easier than actually answering the question.

Poor baby.

This has become depressing--lots of people who know NOTHING about the uS, its laws regarding firearms and its culture--offering all sorts of advice which is neither workable nor particularily effective. Look, the US posters here don't start threads baiting others about what's wrong with their nations, why do you do? How about a thread on multi-culti child abuse in the UK; why Australia treats its Abos badly (hunting them into the 20thC); every nation has something to beotch about--it is none someone's elses business.

The difference is we would all agree that child abuse and hunting aboriginals is wrong but when you flat out deny you have a problem with guns when the world can see you have gives rise to discussion.

Maybe it isn't our problem but we are well within our rights to discuss it (until a mod pulls the plug).

Is it everyone's business? We are all human and all live on the same planet so why wouldn't it be.

Well if there is anyone here who answers to the call-sign "gun nutter", I guess he will answer it.

As I have posted before on here I don't get the heat and tension on this thread .

if US citizens want to own guns that's fine with me. they can't take them out of their country into my country, they can't even take them to Canada (not sure about Mexico but it sounds like it might be a good idea).

This one instance where Americans don't seek to impose their standards and opinions on the rest of the World.

So if they want to carry a .22 pistol ina handbag or have a multi barrel minigun or grenade launcher attached to their pick up that's fine by me and we should leave them alone

What a bunch of shit this statement is. Once these "legal" firearms were stolen, most likely, they then became illegally owned.
