ALL the countries above America have 100% gun bans

Think those idiots who are pushing for gun bans will ever realize that GUNS DO NOT KILL PEOPLE, BUT PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE, and that if our LAWS WERE FOLLOWED, and if the CRIMINALS WERE SENTENCED ACCORDING TO THE LAW, THAT WE WOULD NOT NEED ANY GUN CONTROL AT ALL???????///

    You have heard the term "his-story?" These statistics are subject to be skewed in the favor of the ones recording the history. I don't think the U.S. ties with Martinique. All-in-all this shows how much people respect the sacredness of life.

    Thanks for sharing this information.

    Canada does not have Capital Punishment ,w hen my fFather got out of the military he became Chief Keeper at a Maximum security prison.I grew up believing guns don't kill people people do but I also believe in capital punishment .Someone told me the death penalty does not cut down on murders.I said well it sure cuts down on recidivism.They looked at me blankly that was when I realized I had to explain,people who commit a murder and are paroled and do it again are recidivists !That was when I realized that while you are right and I am right it matters little to these people they really have not even researched the subject they are just parrotting what someone has told them without understanding !

    Agreed that guns don't kill people. It begins with a thought. It is the mind that needs healing. emoticon
