Despite Chicago, DC, Philly, Detroit, LA & NY, from 2007 thru 2011 (according to the CDC, look up the stats), gun-related homocides are DOWN 10.3%. Please, gun-control advocates, explain this in "Statistical Terms". How is this possible in such a "Gun-Culture" in our country? Could it be that there are too many "Criminals"? That would not be logical, would it? No, its the guns fault, it was not the criminal that picked up the gun and fired, the GUN, jumped up off of the table and SHOT someone! It is not the firearm, the size of the magazine, it is the DEMEANOR OF THE PERPETRATOR and HIS/HER desire to carry-out the crime! The method is SECONDARY, when will you understand this? A criminal, insane or not, WILL find a way to commit the crime of their choice, whether or not you succeed in an "Assualt Weapons" ban or not. When, are you going to stop attempting to apply the SAME solution to the SAME problem? WHO is really "Delusional"?

Over and over I have read some comments by people in other places that ask how many bullets does one need to kill somebody. My response is I don't care how many it takes to put the criminal down when someone is out to do you harm, or breaking into your home.  The Mother in Georgia emptied hers, and the guy still walked out, got in a car, and drove a little way.  The teenage boy and his sister had 2 people breaking in, front and back. What if 3 or 4 even broke into your home?  The Seal who's article I read said drugged up creeps have taken what?-9-11 bullets or so,  and still walked out to an ambulance.  I do not care if it takes 1 or 100, and neither should anyone else IMO. When you have to protect yourself, or your grandkids or someone else, do you know how many are going to break into your home, or come at you to assault you and /or them? No, if it took a thousand, who cares?  I don't.

The good thing about all these murders in our own country is just maybe there will be some in our society that might wake up to all the murders our, elected by us, government causes in other countries with covert operations and wars brought about with deceit and deception so we get a taste of our own medicine. What I like is next I get to read about somebody's belief in God and then read what I see as contradictions to what I was taught God is about, 'Love.' I can't believe I just got done asking about exactly what is mentally healthy or mentally ill in our society as if people living in the US even have a clue?
