    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Firearm and crime stats from the FBI.

    I compile these every year, so I can win firearm-related arguments. I realized that this crew would probably enjoy them as well. It really illustrates how inconsequential firearm crime is int eh US, when compared to virtually any other cause of death here.

    Most compelling: we could eliminate 16,586 firearms deaths a year by curing depression. 64% of firearms deaths in the US are suicides (in 2010)

    Conversely, 68% of murders in the US are committed with a firearm.

    Data from FBI Crimes and Statistics annual report table 20.

    Think of it as Photobucket, but not limited to photos.

    It's "the cloud," 5GB of free online storage space for docs, pics, etc.
    https://www.google.com/intl/en_US/dr...tml?authuser=0

    other options, Amazon Cloud Drive (http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000796931), Ubuntu One (https://one.ubuntu.com), Dropbox, etc.

    Wow. District of Columbia has the highest rate of firearms murders (more than twice the rate of the #2 on the list, Louisiana) despite having the toughest "gun control" statutes in the U.S.

    Things that make you go "hmmmm"...

    I'm more curious about Louisiana. While not as shocking as DC, it has nearly double the rate of most of the rest of the country.

    Trust me us gun lovers ENJOY that contradiction.

    Thanks Scrapper, you curtailed most of my rant bitching about my ruined Saturday, Sunday, and Monday Night Football watching. I am watching College football and this idiot kills himself, his girlfriend and all of these DUMABASS football pundits, specifically Jason Whitlock and the dumass Bob Costas, talk trash about gun culture. Anyway, the typical "arrggggh we live in a time of gun culture," "arrrgggh if we didn't have guns everyone would live blah blah blah." Fuckers ruining my football weekend.

    They've been blaming Katrina for the skewed numbers.

    Statistically, it would appear that tough/lenient gun laws are somewhat tertiary considerations to population density and poverty as predictors of murder rates.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
