    Chicago banned handguns 28 years ago. 5000 killed there by guns. Are we safe yet? [View all]
    More people were killed in Chicago, 5000 since 2001 (with guns) than US troops killed in the war zone of Afghanistan. Obviously banning guns doesn't make us safer. Why are people so afraid to confront the real issue? A recent study reported that 1 in 5 American adults takes at least one psychiatric drug to treat depression and/or anxiety, a 22 percent increase since 2001

    He provides a bunch of linked information to his statistics.

    The DUmp is in full blown meltdown between backers of the 2nd Amendment and those who want to tear it down. They've been at each others throats all night.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Massive amounts of knee jerk stupidity in that thread....but, then again, it wouldn't be your average DU thread without it.

    There are massive knee jerk reactions through the general forum of DU (haven't checked out the rest yet). It's unreal.

    Not really Lanie. It's just what I expect to come from that hive of scum and villany known as DU.

    I generally avoid painting with a broad brush but I seriously doubt that the noisiest of the antigun crowd at DU give a damn about those killed and their families. Their main concern seems to be how best to use the tragedy to further their agenda. Their faux outrage is highlighted by the quick solution they have to stave off future murders. A solution they bandy about every time something gun related happens. Their thoughts are not so much as to how to fix the issue but on how to make the issue fit with their predetermined solution.
