Original Starting post for this thread:
Since the devastating tragedy at Sandyhook Elementary School, I suspect that those of us who’ve never been personally touched by gun violence are giving gun control a whole lot more thought than ever before – particularly if frequenting the online social networks, now plastered with pro- and anti-gun memes.

Of the pro-gun memes and comments, the one you’re most likely to hear is along the lines of “If killers really want to kill, they’ll find a way – knives aren’t against the law.” And then, of course, there are all the statistics of how many people are killed in car accidents annually – as if a mode of transportation was in any way comparable to an instrument designed for killing.

While knives are far more available than guns (in fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single household that doesn’t possess a knife), the fact is that guns kill far more people annually than knives. If you remove guns from the equation, the number of knife killings would have to increase tenfold to equal the number of gun killings.

According to the “Futures Without Violence” organization (formerly the Family Violence Prevention Fund), women who suffer from domestic violence are five times more likely to be murdered if there is a gun in the home. That’s a pretty striking statistic and flies in the face of claims that those who kill with guns would find another way to kill. In fact, that statistic almost makes it seem as though it’s the gun that’s creating the killer.

Mass knifings (four or more people killed), on the other hand, are virtually nonexistent. There have purportedly been two in the U.S. (according to Spartan Cops). I’d hazard a guess that the amount of people killed in those mass stabbings was less than 10.

Killing with a knife requires the perpetrator to be in close contact with the victim. It’s highly doubtful that those involved in any of these shootings would have had the stomach to do what they did if not for the relatively easy and impersonal method of killing provided by guns (which is perhaps why many of these mass gun killers wear masks – to further separate themselves from the violence they are inflicting).

Of all the homicides in the U.S., approximately 70% are committed with firearms. From 1999-2010, the Center for Disease Control reports that 364,483 Americans were killed by guns in the U.S. — that averages out to approximately 30,000 gun fatalities per year (compared to less than 3,000 stabbing fatalities.

Just:

If you can't meet the minimum for a civilized nation, then up your rates. Those who must pay more now must up theirs and once the cost return to the top, they must pay themselves less.

Professor FJ lectured to Robert that our founders created the national militia in Article X of the U.S. Constitution. But FJ has not been able to cite Article X of the Constitution. He's probably still looking for it. Keep looking, FJ, keep looking. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Sometimes I wish elected leaders could fix their road blocks by dueling. Swords only. Prefably short sabers.

Obama was elected by dueling? I thought that was against the law?

Just:

Muslim or not, he is the man that was duely elected, his vision accepted as the path forward by more Americans than your side had. The only brakes you have to his vision is revolution or the next election.

You tout 2nd amendment solutions, you refer to the right to rebel, you are suggesting to override the lawful election system because you refuse to accept that you had lost the lawful elections. You wish to instal a tyrrany of your rule over the democratic election system we now have.

You are the tyrant.
