Gun murder rate in the US is higher than in the UK. DUH! Should we ban guns in the US?

Car accident rate in Somalia is very low compared to the US. DUH! There are only seven cars in Somalia, 4 of them are having engine problem. Should we ban cars in the US?

Some statistics fall under DUH! category. Only morons would use them.

Lets see, a.) only morons would use statistics
b.) you just quoted several statistics
c.) therefore, by your own definition, you must be a moron......

go back to your ponytail steve screen name.
have a great life moron.
i am out of here.
bye. don't write, don't call, don't even breath because in the words of bob dylan, idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth, you're an idiot babe, its a wonder that you still know how to breath

The moron Johnny real has also admitted we need gun control without even realizing it.
I swear these right wingers sure are a stupid group

The troll steve must have forgot that she was stupid.

Too funny the moron ponytail Steve had to pull out Jamaica in El Salvador to find worst murder rates in the US. The Moron is so stupid she doesn't realize she just admitted we need gun control

No, .jrey. Steve was pointing out that we are not the most violent country, that's all. El Salvador has serious drug cartels in their country. I don't know what's going on in Jamaica, but it can't be good.

I'd also like to point out that Norway, which has some of the strictest gun laws in the world, experienced one of the most deadly attacks since World War II.

The massacre on the island of Utøya is certain to lead to a security review, with particular stress on how Anders Behring Breivik obtained his weapons. Norway already has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, but they were apparently easily circumvented by the killer.


That event, which was executed in two stages, The first part of the staged attack was a bomb. The explosion killed eight people and injured at least 209 people, twelve of them seriously. The second stage involved the murderer killing 69 on an island youth camp and injuring at least 110, 55 of them seriously;the 69th victim died in a hospital two days after the massacre. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Norway_attacks

Why would you want to compare FIREARM murder numbers of a country that bans firearms and another country that does not ban firearms? Like they say, it's apples and oranges. If there's a country that bans hammers, I'm sure that country has very low hammer related murder numbers compared to the US, a country that does not ban hammers.

If you want to compare UK and US, compare this: the numbers of home invasions. Very low in the US, very high in UK. Why? 40-50% home owners in the US are armed. You've got to be a desperate burglar before you try to break into a home in the US.

Another comparison: Knife related murders. High in the UK, low in the US.

It seems Johnnie is a close second to steve in being moron of the site.

Trying to talk facts with ponytail steve is like putting lipstick on a pig

Trying to talk facts with the fo like ponytail steve is like putting lipstick on a pig

ODD as I haven't posted all day yet the troll ponytail Steve accuses everyone which is most people that disagree with her as being me. Thanks for the compliment fool. I WONDER WHY SHE IS SO OBSESSED WITH ME IS IT DUE TO THE FACT THAT I ALWAYS MAKE ME LOOK FOOLISH. Thanks for the Laughs troll.

Yes you do always make you look foolish.
I think we should be thanking you actually.

Ok, enough with the made up "facts" and opinions. Heres the world list of all FIREARM murders last year by country, broken down by populations, etc.......

You want to argue, great, argue the facts, save opinion for the bars........


I am surprised Timmy is not crying that its a virus...
Taken from your link:

• The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world - an average of 88 per 100 people. That puts it first in the world for gun ownership - and even the number two country, Yemen, has significantly fewer - 54.8 per 100 people
• But the US does not have the worst firearm murder rate - that prize belongs to Honduras, El Salvador and Jamaica. In fact, the US is number 28, with a rate of 2.97 per 100,000 people
• Puerto Rico tops the world's table for firearms murders as a percentage of all homicides - 94.8%. It's followed by Sierra Leone in Africa and Saint Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean

Actually England only had 32 murders all last year

There were 5 murders last year in the US. See Timmy, I can lie too.

Correct your post about 5 murders in the US last year is a lie. However the post about 33 murders in the UK last year is the truth..


refute this.

firearms only.

Wow the troll ponytail steve has destroyed this site.
Is the moderator on vacation today???

I don't think there is a moderator on this site. The Daily Voice doesn't have that much credence, imo, anyway as has been proven by the fact that they allow the bullying to occur here by this poster who poses as numerous individuals.

Timmy, you cry all the time. Be a man.

Excellent post about England and so very true

Ponytail Steve
We were wondering do you have at least the third grade education as you seem to be extremely ignorant

England strict gun laws whole country 33 murders 1 year end of story

33 murders in the country of 50M people??? There must be more murders in heaven than in England. Timmy, if you want to lie you ought to learn how to do it better.

Don't worry, Timmy will reply with another user name and agree with himself!!

read and learn. actually 41 in england and new south wales.
no murders in heaven, these are by firearm only.


read and learn. actually 41 in england and new south wales.
no murders in heaven, these are by firearm only.


wow, what a post Tim T!

Any facts to back these made up numbers?

Sure, for Tim T

Here you go:
Ranking by country, homicides by firearm, per 100k population, ave per 100 people, average total per entire population, etc.....



Chicago has one of the highest murder rates in the country, with 506 murders last year, compared to 414 in New York City (another place its extremely difficult to get a gun, coincidence?), which is three times the size of the Windy City.

Whats the next step in Chicago? "double" ban guns? make them "illegaler". despite the supreme court ruling there are still no gun stores in Chicago and its not possible to get a carry license there. More Americans are being killed in Chicago than Afghanistan, (where almost every american has a gun mostly those scary looking M16s) which is literally an active war zone.

Liberals HATE these facts.

Well for what it is worth, here's the links to the two landmark cases on gun ownership from the U.S. Supreme Court.

2008 Washington D.C. gun ban overturned by U.S. Supreme Court

2010 McDonald vs. Chicago, - gun ban overturned by U.S. Supreme Court

Too funny ponytail Steve just posted that she was placing bets at the welfare office with imaginary people

Hey first the hour banned you, and now TOPIX?

HAAAA, we are in tears! Whats wrong Timmy? Haaa, you will get the darwin award one day

Ponytail Steve
Freak we do realize that you are extremely ignorant but why do you feel the need to prove it with each in every of your post.
The truth is Chicago has the weakest gun laws in the country.
It is a liewhile perpetrated by the right wing wacko blogs that Chicago has strong gun controls when in fact they do not.
Also do not post a link once again to a virus in a lame attempt to try to prove your lame point.

You write like that and call me ignorant?
That's a good one!
Odd, Tim T and all the other user names you use write the same way....

That was a great post about the fool ponytail Steve.

I see our resident roll is using her ponytail Steve name today for her spam

Whats the next user name going to be, Tim T?
We are placing bets right now!

Odd how ponytail Steve obsessively post and post but says absolutely nothing

Fools talk, and we sometimes engage them to expose them for what they are,

You still did not answer about Chicago, why not?

Hey, Ponytail: You are catching more than the average amount of flak this morning from these mental midgets. How about we compare homicide rates among whites and other ethnic groups? Any one want to look at the FBI statistics on that one? Or you can watch the local news or read that Ct. Post rag every day and draw your own conclusions. Maybe we should consider repealing the 13th Amendment? Just as ridiculous as repealing the 2nd Amendment, which antedates it. Maybe exhibitionist clown Weinstein could hold some hearings. Would that be fun, or what?

Yesterday we had ponytail Steve filling this site with profanity.
Today we have ponytails Steve attacking any posters that does not agree with her.
Is there a reason the daily is allowing this troll to destroy this site with her spam?
I have heard many say that they no longer come to the site because of this 1 individual with many usernames.

stop crying to the moderator TIM T.
You are pathetic, everyone knows so do the moderators.
If you were not so stupid you would know they get paid on page views.
They LIKE the posts. Even your 50 user names retarded posts.
At least I am not a coward, afraid to use one name!


Excellent post is so very very true on all points

What is so amusing is that every crybaby is running to blame guns once again. There was a note left in the school, now people are crying about more gun control?
Criminals, and mentally ill people do not follow gun laws. I am sorry that upsets you left wingers.
Also, why do Liberals have ZERO to say about Chicago gun laws and crime?
Because the truth scares them. Alot

And that you find any of this amusing just sickens me.....

All I want you to do is explain the Chicago gun laws and effectiveness to me.
Is that something you can do?

And how do mentally ill people get ahold of guns? Hmmmmmmm....... lets see.
Blaming guns? Well, how many people would have died without guns? What if the guys/guy/criminal was running around with a knife? or baseball bat? or a single shot musket (like in the good 'ol constitution days?) Perhaps a drive by stoning? How about the Chinese crazy guy, right around the time of the Newtown craziness, broke into a school with a knife, how many died?
Dude, it doesn't just upset left wingers - perhaps total wing nuts like you. Lets talk about Weston, Westport, Redding, not Chicago. Just a thought or is that too much for you to process? Pony tail too tight?
