    Something like 0.0002% of gun crime is licenced firearms in Australia

    All guns must be licenced.

    It didn’t happen in a vacuum, imo. [emoji6]

    Doesn’t seem to me like it was a particularly peaceful or loving time. ... Although it certainly is an important time in our history.

    Please define “gun control crowd.” TIA.

    Most Americans favor some sort of gun reform, and up to 97 percent of gun owners. (Linked multiple times upthread and in previous threads.)

    Do you mean everyone?

    Who said it’s a “war”? Is this a threat?

    Links, please.

    I’ve read nowhere where all shooters are on meds.

    And are you aware of just how many Americans are medicated for some kind of psychiatric issue?!

    Ha ha ha ...

    One in six. So, yeah. [emoji854]

    If you can't back it up your comment will be read as just your opinion. Just add JMO or MOO to your posts so we know.

    The majority of firearm fatality in Australia is suicide. White males cant shoot themselves fast enough. Now they choose hose pipes on exhaust etc.

    Suicide in Australia is higher than the road toll.

    Thats 3% of 0.06% of licenced firearms used in gun crime in Australia.

    only a small proportion, 0.06% of licensed firearms, are stolen in a given year. An even smaller proportion of those firearms are reported to be recovered. About 3% of these stolen weapons are later connected to an actual crime

    The USA has always had access to guns. Civil wars, you name it. Less access in the past 25 years to the likes automatic firearms.

    Nearly all school mass shootings last 25 years in USA.

    Automatic firearms are not being used in school shootings. Semi-auto assault type rifles however.....

    No, no, no. It's never about the guns. /s

    Not sarcasm: Look how big this thread has gotten on the very subject of guns. I do wonder what it would like if the majority of websleuths weren't Americans.
