Gun crime
« on: 2010-12-19 17:41:19 »

From time to time our American [members] post some story or other about an armed robbery, gunfight or similar firearm-related shenanigans.  Well it seems that kind of thing goes down in Cambridge too.

I wonder how difficult it was smuggling the weapon into the country.  I assume that there are lots of checks at entry points.  Kinda stupid blowing it like that, though.  Of course, I've never met a smart criminal.

A second amendment is only useful when you need a militia to fight the government.

I disagree.  As, I think, Mr. Martin does.

Do rare occasions or personal defence justify very high fire-arm related violence?

Ok well tried to get the forum to put in a nice table, but it failed.

Instead I direct your eyes to the  Gun Violence page on Wikipedia, with the US firearm homicide rate per 100,00 people more than 33 times that of the UK.  Some perspective, Columbia is 431 times that of the UK.

I do concede  on the point that the US will never and can never get rid of it's 2nd amendment.  I do think though a strong police force and re-education of the populace would go along way.

Re-education you say?  Perhaps we could set up some camps for that purpose.

I'd be interested to know the percentage of those homicides that were committed with illegally owned firearms versus ones where the perpetrator had a permit for the weapon. It's a safe bet that most of the weapons were obtained illegally. It's flawed logic to believe that making owning a gun illegal will dissuade people from doing something that's already illegal. If the availability of ILLEGAL handguns is a problem, then crack down on ILLEGAL handguns. That doesn't mean you have to shred the Constitution.

That chart also tells you that the overall homicide rate is much higher here, so it's not a fair comparison. We just enjoy killing each other more over here, plain and simple.

Higher per 100,000 people.  Americans and Columbian's are more willing to commit murder.

Right, that's what I'm saying. And here's something totally different to consider. Comparing those percentages to the 2000 U.S. census, that says that around 11,200 (12,000 to be generous) people were killed in firearms-related homicides in 2000. In the U.S. in 2000, 85,000 people died in alcohol-related deaths. A high percentage of those were drunk driving accidents. That also doesn't include firearms-related homicides that were CAUSED by someone being drunk. So why aren't you fighting for prohibition to be reinstated?
