But it didn't work in the link I submitted, did it? Those lumens didn't do crap to save Todd Blair's life.
I think the cops in the video shot too early, you want me to excuse that? The victim was not in the dark. The lights on the cops guns didn't help or hurt. If it had been dark and the person not bent on shooting regardless then a weapon light could most certainly help. You really don't think so? It would have helped in my situation for sure. You guys keep talking about tiny lights, or in your case increasing the lumens "a bit." I'm talking about increasing them a lot, from dark to lit up.

Have you ever handled one of these lights in a dark room. They do a lot.

From the link I gave:

"De Leo, Dwyer, Firman & Neulinger,[32] studied suicide methods in men from 1979 to 1998 and found a rise in hanging suicides that started slightly before the fall in gun suicides. As hanging suicides rose at about the same rate as gun suicides fell, it is possible that there was some substitution of suicide methods."

Yeah, I don't count suicides. I understand taht more guns=more successful suicides but that isn't what keeps people are concerned about.

Take Population A with guns in the house, compare it to Population B without guns, control for various factors and find out who winds up dead more often. (It's A).
You have a cite for that or are you just assuming that you are right?

It's only the rate which changes. That's just a percentage. If there are 10000 gun suicides and 100 hanging, then a similar 10% rate change means 9000 gun suicides and 110 hanging--a difference of 990. If gun and hanging suicides are the same, then the same rate change would mean that the handgun suicides are switching to hanging. But without knowing the details, it's not clear if all the gun suicides switched to hanging.

(I'm unable to view that [32] link in the wiki page, so I'm not sure what numbers they used).

The gun ban was in 1996?

That's a criticism, the pro is that in the dark they all but blind the bad guy. Also from the real life video's from you tube it seems a lot of bad guys have knives instead of guns.

Seems odd to me that you gun-grabbers are so against technology with the potential to save innocent lives. I guess that's really not what you are all about.

What? Your posts are very hard to parse sometimes.

Anyway, I certainly count suicides. I'm still in the worst demographic for them, after all. Statistically, I'm way more likely to kill myself than to be killed by a stranger. Why would I ignore that?

If you think suicide is bad and think you might do so then maybe you shouldn't get a gun or a rope or belt...

I don't think you should bother, as you'd just have to pretend not to be able to understand what it says despite repeated explanations. Or you could just act as if you've never seen that cite before, no matter that you've already been referred to it.

Dave I'm not sure why you would say that now. I have a private message from you saying you liked my approach to the Kellerman study you often reference, but only I read.

I was impressed-- at first-- with your approach to Kellerman, which appeared to be surprisingly open-minded for someone who is clearly an advocate of sanctioned firearms homicide. That was before you started asking me to explain, repeatedly, things I'd already quoted to you and that were covered, plainly and at some length, within the article. I decided that you were being disingenuous. To be as stupid as you pretended I doubt you could operate a computer or mobile device.

Stupid? What you mean those questions you admitted in your PM to me that you couldn't answer? Yeah, I thought I would ask them again, to give you the chance to admit IN PUBLIC you couldn't answer them.

Well that's the thing: a golf club wasn't very effective against an armed invader who happened to be there legally. A loaded AR-15 might have been, but we're simultaneously expected to believe that time is of the essence and that keeping a gun unloaded or in a safe would result in slaughter and that a person can identify whether someone is a friendly or not in a matter of milliseconds with the appropriate degree of luminosity. Seems a tad implausible.

I figure it has a co-benefit of keeping Christian kids from missing school that day so they can learn about condoms too.

No guns at home, so Japanese shoot 'em up in Guam

The Japanese totally ban handguns and other lethal toys, so tourists go to Guam to shoot guns in a firing range. Tucked into the text, the following factoid:

Quote:
....Because guns are so hard to find, gun-related crime is extremely rare. They were used in only seven murders in Japan a nation of about 130 million people in 2011, the most recent year for official statistics. In the U.S., with 315 million people, there are more than 11,000 gun-related killings annually....

Yea, but I have it on the impeccable authority of many on this forum that their deadly lawn furniture rampages must be through the roof.

Or the Japanese aren't as exceptionally murderous as Americans.

Or something.

Anyway, Luci, back to the more important issue. Why do you hate Freedom?

Here's the weekly update from DailyKos: GunFail V

Note that he has decided to discontinue the account of domestic murder/suicide since his original intent was to focus on the ways in which responsible gun owners suddenly turn into irresponsible gun owners. There are 50 events in this week's installment.

That is a quality link, my friend.

The amount of stupid exhibited by folks there is astounding. Well, it's not surprising that stupid people have accidents. But the combination of stupid people and guns can lead to some impressive stories.

But that's fine - you see, they were all irresponsible gun owners. Of course, they were responsible gun owners right up until the time the shot themselves or someone else. Of course, it will NEVER, EVER happen to the gun lovers in this thread. Because they're responsible you see.

Right up until they are not.

Then don't get a gun. Noone is forcing you to get a gun, the choice is yours.

Not all gun owners are responsible. Hang out at a gun store for about an hour and it becomes obvious.

That is why I support a licensing requirement. I had to undergo training and take a test to get my CCW. There has been one firearm crime committed by someone with a CCW since 1976. I would bet that CCWs have fewer accidental/negligent discharges than the gun owning population generally, I couldn't provide a cite but it would be consistent with my anecdotal experience.

You can substitute a whole lot of words for "guns" in your sentence still make sense without anyone asking for a ban. Off the top of my head: skateboards, roller blades, bicycles, motorcycles, skis, snowboards, alcohol, power tools, yet none of those can have the potential to save lives the way guns can.

They all broke basic safety rules. People who break basic gun safety rules are irresponsible gun owners the moment they break them, not the moment an accident happens. Agree or no?

The Arkansas Legislature will probably pass a bill allowing concealed carry at colleges and universities.

Who in the hell wants to hand a guy a failed final if he is carrying?

This is frequently claimed. I was interested then to see the CCWs among this week's gun fails, including theone who brandished her weapon at Chuck E Cheese's.

No, I'm talking about passing them out afterwards.

So, damn, passing out grades on a regular test.
