Not even taken into account in the Americans dead in wars are the one million civilians in the Philippines or the 57,000 military who died in WWII. The majority of these people still held American citizenship. The citizens of the Philippines were US citizens until 1935 and then were allowed to maintain a dual citizenship when their country was granted independence.

1,326,612 total deaths in wars for the US according to wiki. So it is still bull crap. If the 38k number is correct, and I doubt that it is, that still only comes up to 1.25 million. Still crap for accuracy of statement and ZZ is intentionally spouting unsupported lies.

It's 525,000 in the Civil War actually, but that's still almost half of all US war casualties in 230+ years. 405,000 in WWII and 115,000 in WWI. Vietnam next with 58,000, and etc. Total killed in war -- not just in combat but in the wars -- 1.17 million.

Since 1980, an average of 32,000 have been killed with guns in America every year. This adds up to just over a million.

If the average from 1968 to 1979 was as much as 14,000 per year, then the statement is correct:

Since 1968, "more Americans have died from gunfire than died in … all the wars of this country's history."

"We should note that these figures refer to all gun-fire related deaths -- not just homicides, but also suicides and accidental deaths."

Norc:

I can see where they are obtaining those numbers.

Take the estamated number if yearly dead to be 100,000 times that by the last 100 or so years and you get about ten million. Now if they foolishly times it by the nations age, the number does come out to be close to our total war dead sense the formation of the US. (ignoring none war dead from famine or sickness as a resume of war)

It is a number game... Sadly the liberal far left includes criminals such as gang in gang, and civilian defending themselves against criminals in those numbers.

ZZ I don't know why you quoted this it is total BS..... show me the source and the numbers. The total number of Americans killed in the civil war are greater than the number of civilians killed by non combat gunfire. And that is just one war. YOU sir, are full of crap!!!!

Now read this interesting segue regarding the domestic gun war in America:

Since 1968, "more Americans have died from gunfire than died in … all the wars of this country's history."

This quote is taken from a social group blog which is gaining daily views.

"...seem to think that because a gun is black and has a pistol grip that it is a machine gun. "

Again, nobody here has said that. When you address people who aren't here, it really looks like you're talking to mysterious voices in your head.

"...you really do not want to limit weapons according to what they can do but only what they look like."

norcal, who is it you say wants this? You seemed to be addressing CT, but they didn't say anything of the sort.

Earlier I mentioned that your posts may have some good information, but it tends to get buried in nonsense. It's very hard to see whether you offer anything of substance, or if it's all bullshit.

Aren't many bolt action rifles similar in function to that of What the military has used in the past as well as present?

So where does one draw the line? Or is that just what the reasonable folks want to be left up in the air?
