    My response had to do with these "people having nothing to do with the government" mentioning STATISTICS. My response also had to do with these "people having nothing to do with the government" mentioning LIBERAL SOCIALIST POTUS, the UNITED NATIONS, and CONGRESS (all government connections) in their posts. What's wrong with you?

    I just checked the FBI's crime statistics web page. They only have their preliminary 2012 report. I would find it highly unlikely that someone has decent information concerning crime by type for year 2013.

    However, murders in 2011 were 14,612 with 67.7% committed with firearms. That means there were almost 9900 murders in 2011 committed with firearms.

    Therefore, it's reasonable to assume that in 8 months time in year 2013, that the term "thousands and thousands" is not off the mark, however, this radio announcer certainly did not get his data from the FBI crime statistics.

    Almost all black on black. Outside of Trayvon, kindly NAME ONE--and anyone with half a brain knows why that one made the news.

    But for a real awakening, look at blunt object deaths. More people get beat to death with objects than get killed by rifles that the left wants banned.

    Not high at all. 8 months is 3/4 of a year, and each year there is approximately 30-33,000 gun RELATED deaths each year. One thing I went a long time before learning is that approximately 20,000 of those are suicides. That means that even if you could take guns out of that equation, you're going to have the same problem with substituted variables. So guns cannot be argued to be the problem in the case of suicides at all. Another statistic they won't like you to hear is that vehicles kill approximately 35,000 people each year, and drunk drivers alone kill approximately 8-10,000 people. That means that factoring out suicides by guns and all other vehicle related deaths, drunk drivers kill just as many, if not more people than gun related homicides and accidents each year. Where's our vehicle-control policies and anti-car fanatics? These protestors you speak of are simply the puppets of a government wanting to control it's subjects.

    The rifles the left are trying to ban don't even account for more than 1% of all gun related CRIMES, let alone all of gun related DEATHS!

    Apparently a lot less than you. These "people" didn't mention the government. Only one person mentioned Obama, but that was not the post you responded to. Yet you seem to feel justified in calling others wrong based on words they never actually posted. So who's wrong? The person who actually read what was posted or the one that's chastising others for something that didn't happen? Now had your remarks been directed at the people at the protest rather than at the people on this forum, I would have agreed with you.

    Again...LIBERAL, SOCIALIST, POTUS, UNITED NATIONS, and CONGRESS (all government connections). The government could CARE LESS about statistics, ANY STATISTICS. You people can't seem to figure this out. Read it any way that you choose, I could care less if you agree or not.

    I believe you meant to say, "I couldn't care less" and "the government couldn't care less", which would mean you and the government are already at the least level of care about the matters you mentioned. If I'm wrong and you really do have the ability to care less and the government has the ability to care less and you wanted us to know that then I apologize.

    Correct. And less than the blunt object deaths. So why haven't we banned hammers and baseball bats yet?
