    We need to tell theses gun control freaks they are barking up the wrong tree. Guns only killed 35,957, 1995 is the year they quote. Alcohol linked to 75,000 U.S. deaths a year. That’s almost twice as many that are killed by guns. We have to stop the deaths, ban alcohol. Wait, we tried that once and it didn’t work.
    There are several views as to the cause of the Civil War in the US. My view is it was caused by busy bodies that had to mind every ones else’s business. My view is that busy bodies killed over one half million Americans between 1861 and 1865.
    Damn, I wish we could ban the busy bodies.

    We need stronger laws controlling "Natural Causes"! That, and dihydrogen monoxide. Dihydrogen monoxide is REALLY deadly.

    I think we should start by banning city mayors from sticking thier nose into the crime problems of other cities when they cannot get a grip on the crime in thier own city.

    Also while we're at it ban H. Clinton, N. Pelosi, and D. Fienstein from public view. These three are so ugly they can create train wrecks. Um how many would that kill each year?

    Did you even comprehend the point the OP was trying to make? You are aware of the prize you get if you make it to 500 posts in the first 60 days right?

    GET a grip. Guns are the least of the problems in the death. Wait till obamacare comes around. People will be dying left and right why because these people can't ballance a check book let alone run a country.

    Cars and Doctors cause more deaths than guns ever do.

    Stats can also be played both ways. Brady and his bunch of homo's throws in combat deaths and gang related deaths and we the Right side doesn't include them. Stats can be worked to make them say what you want them to.

    Yes only 35,957 in 1995 killed by guns. More than half this number were suicides. If theses people did not have a gun to kill themselves with they may have used a car. I guess we have to ban cars also they killed many more in the US than guns.
    Half of Gun Deaths Are Suicides
    Tuesday July 1, 2008
    Research shows that surprisingly often gun deaths are self-inflicted.
    In 2005, the most recent year for which statistics are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicides accounted for 55% of the nation's nearly 31,000 firearm deaths.
    In the same year, 40% of deaths were homicides, 3% were accidents and the remaining 2% were "legal killings", such as when police officers do the shooting in the course of duty.
    Nor was there anything unique about that particular year. Gun-related have suicides outnumbered firearm homicides and accidents for 20 of the last 25 years, according to CDC statistics.

    Car Crash Stats: There were nearly 6,420,000 auto accidents in the United States in 2005. The financial cost of these crashes is more than 230 Billion dollars. 2.9 million people were injured and 42,636 people killed. About 115 people die every day in vehicle crashes in the United States -- one death every 13 minutes.

    Ever seen the movie "Thank you for Smoking"? In it the M.O.D. (Merchants of Death) meet every friday to discuss how many people their products are killing every year. The firearms rep complains that if he added guns and alcohol together they'd still not have half of the people killed by Tobacco. Or something like that. It's been about 4 years since I saw the movie. Guns get a bad rap since they "intentionally" kill people. Alcohol and Tobacco deaths are "side effects"

    ^^^ (pointing to Jess's post) Ever see that movie Seven? That one for sure.

    I do find some of those stats interesting in light of the much quoted "the seasonal influenza kills approximately 30,000 Americans each year". So, when are they gonna make sneezing in public a felony. "Sir you didn't catch that with your elbow, so...well, don't drop the soap when you are our guest."

    Is it just me, or did that horse look a bit confused?

    Honestly, i find this hard to believe. I can accept that there were no OD's, but somebody had to have a car wreck or something with pot in their system. It stays in your fat for a month or more & i'm sure if it showed up in the autopsy for a car crash victim, somebody would blame it, especially if it was a two-car wreck with a Hostess snack van.

    1. An exhaustive search of the literature finds no credible reports of deaths induced by marijuana. The US Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) records instances of drug mentions in medical examiners' reports, and though marijuana is mentioned, it is usually in combination with alcohol or other drugs. Marijuana alone has not been shown to cause an overdose death.

    National Academy Press, 1999), available on the web at http://www.nap.edu/html/marimed/; and US Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration, "In the Matter of Marijuana Rescheduling Petition" (Docket #86-22), September 6, 1988, p. 57.

    I agree if you smoke pot you better not drive. Looks like it was used with alcohol.

    I only know of one way to OD on Marijuana, and a person would have to do this intentionally, as it would require over a week of planning and preparation. I'm saving that info incase i am ever diagnosed with something terminal & painful.

    What I find interesting is that doctor prescriptions are deadlier than illegal drugs.

    DOGS!!!

    Somewhere around 500,000 children are hurt each year by dogs. We should ban dogs. Maybe we should require a background check for dogs, and a permit to have one out in public. I don't recall dogs in the constitution.

    Oh Yeah! If all the tobacco smokers and alcohol drinkers converted to the wonderful Cannabis Sativa plant, our population would skyrocket even higher!!! And if they legalized it we would have enough money to get out of this econimical cluster**** we have been in the last few years...
