Hillary just wants to protect the Israeli nation building/ethnic cleansing project and make sure another event like the Sept. 11th attacks on New York City happens.

Hillary supports top down violent regime change because being ineffective is her thing, playing God is her thing, and killing innocent civilians lead by evil dictators is fair and righteous

Hillary wants Americans to be hated and enjoys the constant bullseye on the backs of travelling Americans (real or imagined, it does not matter).

Hillary agrees with West Bank settlers that they are truly culturally superior to the original inhabitants.

Hillary believes that Israel's stockpile of nuclear weapons and the de facto regional monopoly on those nuclear weapons makes American citizens safer.  

But then she probably realizes that far more Americans are killed and maimed by fellow Americans wielding guns than are killed and maimed by honest to God 'terrorists'.

Here, I am not so sure.  Perhaps shooting other Americans is good practice for defending Americans from foreign terrorists. 

If automobiles, tobacco and alcohol are righteous ways of dying, why not death by guns?

Your old argument might mention a trigger finger on the hand connected to the arm of a person with a culturally (and otherwise) sick mind...Maybe amputation is in order? Oh, wait...That sounds...even more barbaric. Ok, that's not an original idea apparently, but at least at some point we wouldn't default to knives or lawnmower blades because it takes so long to learn to efficiently hold and use a weapon with the feet. Of course by then you'll be able to buy a turn key killing rig with a foot actuated thingy and get your feet and legs cut off for the trouble. Then we'll have to squeeze the trigger with our butt cheeks or mouth which of course in a lot of ways is the same hyperbolic if enevitable shame...

Oh, sorry. Which way to 260,000 Posts please...

Here is a look at per capita weapons data, based on the ATF's National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record, and 2013 data from the U.S. Census.

While the ATF's National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record is the only accessible list of its kind, it is not all-inclusive. NFA firearms only include the categories regulated by The National Firearms Act of 1934: machine guns, short-barreled rifles, short-barreled shotguns, suppressors, destructive devices like bombs and grenades, concealable devices with the ability to discharge a shot through the energy of an explosive, and any firearm with a bore over half an inch that has not been determined to have a legitimate sporting use.


So yeah: no. They're counting NFA guns, and those are a tiny fraction of the weapons in the US. They don't go into how they integrated census data into their calculations (and census data is a weak tool here) so it's hard to tell what influence this had.

The individual states shown indicate some of the problems with the data; they are using registration lists to count guns. Montana is shown tied with Connecticut at 11.3/1,000 residents. for chrissake; 11,461 "registered guns" among just over a million residents. Montana doesn't register guns of any kind. There might be that many concealed carry permit holders, but as a stand-in for firearms ownership that number is utter crap—there were 23,366 NICS checks (background checks for firearms purchases) in Montana in the first two months of 2016.

Saw a guy with a semi-auto pistol on his hip in the liquor store Friday. Made me nervous. Was he a good guy with a gun or a homicidal maniac? How do we know? I'm actually surprised at how few I've seen so far.

Calling BS on this. There is no reliable way to count guns in places they aren't registered, which is most of the country. DC makes legally owning a firearm about as difficult as possible, so until I see the math I don't believe a word of it.

Thanks for sharing Red_Dragon, Scott and others.  Interesting experiences.

Some personal nuances:

- my politics is non-violent (no matter how hard that is to do), but...

- I wouldn't hesitate to kill if I or those under my charge are threatened and that can be done with a short skinning blade, a ball point pen, certain holds and sharp blows, etc. , etc.  Carrying firearms is strategically risky.   On the other hand....

- there is nothing wrong with running (done that on a couple of occasions), or even better yet....

- talking your way out .  Done that lots.

There is an art to de-escalating a situation.  It requires respect, it requires treating others with dignity, it often requires directly addressing the security concerns of others.

Sometimes, it helps to implicitly threaten deadly violence but that has to be done very, very carefully and usually non-verbally.  Most people are not up for the task of this kind of deterrence.  One is either a fearless warrior with the right instincts or not.  

I have often wondered if adolescents should be taught these kinds of street smarts and the art of de-escalating a potentially dangerous, violent situation.  Most decent, civil parents do not see the requirement and if anything would likely oppose that kind of education.
