"Not sure if that site is trustworthy. For example, Russia, Liberia, Somalia, Swaziland, Jamacia, Panama, Honduras, and Brazil should be somewhere on there."

Lol the point of the post was to show it does not "almost only happen in the U.S" :P

"It's their job to arrive minutes after you're dead, search the scene for clues, find the killer (after months) and bring him to justice. Sadly, you're still underground, or ashes on the wind."

So true, my aunt's house was being broken into at midnight, she called the police and her son. She successfully scared him away with a 12. gauge through, her son arrived there within 5 minutes holder two 45. cal pistols. The police arrived an hour later with only two policeman and only one pistol.

everyone can learn atleast 5 techniques to do so in 1 day. even your grandma or 10 year old brother.

I've been using guns all my life and I STILL have trouble with pistols (great with rifles through) so, like Aatos said, you dont have a grasp on reality do you?

Oh btw im sorry if i used quotes wrong, im new to this forum.

to those who want to ban guns, let me posit a scenario.

You are walking one day through your home city, you are the only one in town with a concealed carry permit, and you are a great marksman. Around dinner time (when the sun is getting low) a couple men drive in to town from the west. They stop and get out, pulling something that looks like it might be a gun, and wearing what appears to masks. What do you do?

note: the sun is slightly in your way but you can see them somewhat.

what did you decide to do.

nothing: congratulations, they opened fire and killed everyone in the nearby vicinity

you take cover and prepare to shoot if they fire: you save half the casualties.

You pull out your gun and shoot: no one is hurt.

and people are not as likely to shoot others with guns if they know those people have guns and know how to use them.

for me it's just clear that this couldn't have happend if gun were not on the public market.

Your ideal of criminals and law abiding citizens is messed up.

Criminals won not go turn in their guns and they still would get guns because they are criminals people that break the law in the 1st place.

no valid reason in this case.
as the father was not a criminal but a teacher. there would be no reason for him to have a gun if it was illegal.
(this is not 1 of those rampages where you can throw in this card)

What that is a retarded statement. But a common way to bend the aguement to your way of thinking.

Yes it does count.

USA should review its gun licensing procedures .
A psychoanalysis should be must to avoid things like colorado happening.
Here in KSA, a few years back, a man went crazy and shot up his family and neighbors. Since then, a psychoanalysis is must.

@Jacen, hypotheticals like that are generally very...poor means of persuasion. I could create the same hypothetical and say that nothing happened when you didn't shoot them and use it as evidence that a gun would have resulted in a meaningless death.

no valid reason in this case.
as the father was not a criminal but a teacher. there would be no reason for him to have a gun if it was illegal.

As I said previously, there are reasons where a usually law-abiding citizen may break the law in a non-harmful way...

For example, people who use drugs on occasion but their lives are not messed up because of it. They don't have a 'reason' other than 'they want to' and they still don't cause any trouble. Similarly, the teacher could have a gun because he wanted one for personal protection or because he simply wanted it.

Where is this stupid idea coming from that just because something is illegal a person in a 'respected' profession cannot/will not break that no matter what?

Actually, it does. Criminals aren't as stupid as people think. Black clothing in a dark environment makes a person difficult do see. Hence the common usage of black clothing by criminals at night.

What I meant is, while burglars are often dressed in dark clothes, people in dark clothes walking around at night are probably not burglars. Hence the stupidity of using black clothes as an argument to shoot on someone, or even considering that person a criminal.

to those who want to ban guns, let me posit a scenario.

Ban guns? How about more reasonable legislations first?

Btw, and I know such numbers are probably wrong in some way anyway, but can someone show me a statistic of the total number of thefts and the percentage in which the occupant/s have been actually shot by the thief?

It wasn't the sole reason for the shooting, but part of the larger picture. The ski mask and the knife didn't help.

but can someone show me a statistic of the total number of thefts and the percentage in which the occupant/s have been actually shot by the thief?

0%. Thieves don't shoot people. Robbers? Typically no shootings, but the threat of the gun is a common occurrence. Armed robbery is fairly common, but home invasions are not. Home invasions while the people are home almost always involve violence, as people are just going to invite a stranger in to steal everything.

Most burglars are smart enough to wait until the owners leave such as on a vacation or when they're at work. If not for the lesser charges then for the chance that the burglar him or herself might very well get shot in the process, as happens here in Houston fairly commonly.

There are no solid numbers, however.

He didn't shoot a random person walking around, he shot a person who was trespassing and attempting to break into the house. The fact the kid was wearing black only made him look more like a criminal, because there is a practical reason to wear black when you rob people's houses.

The kid looked like a criminal, but it was his actions that got him killed.

Yeah because new legislation will make criminals follow the law cause they do already.
