Thread: Anti-gun rally in Downtown Columbus

  1. Question Anti-gun rally in Downtown Columbus

    There is an anti-gun rally in downtown Columbus, Ohio today. I just heard on the radio one of the speakers say that in the last 8 months there have been "thousands and thousands" of gun deaths in the United States. I wonder if that is a correct statistic. It seems high to me.

    What strikes me as strange is that Obama is ok with UN telling us what to do. Obama Will Sign UN Gun Treaty While Congress Is On Vacation

    I don't find that strange at all. He is a liberal socialist anti-gun person through and through.

    Well, according to Wiki in 2010 there were 8,306 murders committed with firearms. I would venture to guess that most of those were criminals killing other criminals. In 2010 there were 19,392 suicides "involving" firearms. So, that right there more than 2,000 firearms related deaths per month.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    More people die every year due in vehicles still, though. But nobody talks about requiring a universal background check to buy a car. Or passing a law that makes possessing a vehicle that goes over 40mph illegal.

    Probably higher than the number of people listening to him.

    Whats wrong with you people? When are you people going to wise up and stop all of this BS rhetoric? The government could CARE LESS about statistics, ANY STATISTICS. The government wants your guns plain & simple. The government will do everything possible to get your guns. Because you people can't seem to figure this out, eventually the government will get your guns.

    Nothing. This thread and the post you responded to aren't about the government. They're about a rally in Columbus and what was said there by people who have nothing to do with the government. What's wrong with you?

    There were more counter protesters than those who were there protesting "illegal guns" (a high of about 40 -Columbus Dispatch ). Blomberg's anti gun tour is not what anyone would call successful. In fact the tour hasn't been successful at any of its stops. Even the mayors who were supporting Bloomberg realize that they were mislead and are dropping out.
