4 years ago. Ahh back in the days when events like this were shocking. Just look at the different type of replies in this thread. Different than the one you would see today.

a real ‘eyewitness’ or a government paid actor? this is really bad acting.

“and honestly, for the record, there was only one guy.” (2:32-36). strange thing to say considering stephanopoulos never even asked. clearly he was trying to reinforce the official government version of events.


another false witness.

a staged photo-op with 4 month old baby in tow (for heightened emotional response) and girlfriend who took shrapnel to her ankle and thigh just hours earlier.....what a trooper.
[youtube]IEKWO3jK3U0[/youtube]
notice her adjusting her earpiece @0:57 & 1:03 and the wire is clearly visible at the end. someone was feeding her lines.


more bad acting and the baby makes another cameo appearance. (who brings their 4 month old infant and 4 y.o. daughter to a midnight showing of the ultra-violent dark knight at the “last minute”?). more crocodile tears and fake quavering voice from the boyfriend. the girlfriend then recounts how he proposed to her in the hospital and she happily accepted despite the fact that he cowardly fled the theatre and drove off in his car leaving her and the children to fend for themselves against a ruthless mass murderer. who writes this stuff?

more lousy acting. so the crazed gunman pointed his rifle in your face point-blank but didn’t shoot? right.

No, I wasn't comparing apples and oranges. I was replying to an abraxas question, not making a statement. And I actually reached the same conclusion as you, so why you should call my decision ''bad'' I have no idea.

The question was: In which society are you less likely to get shot, the one where only a tiny fraction has guns or the one where a whole bunch of people have guns.

And since I actually said that ''the availablity of guns is not the determining factor in death by firearm, and culture may be the most important factor'', I am at a total loss why you should tell me I reached a bad conclusion because the number firearms/citizen is not the most important factor. That is exactly what I said.

I did not compare Canada and the US, because that would not have been a reply to abraxas' question. He did not ask for a head-to-head comparison of Canada and the US gun laws.

If I can turn your question around and pose it as ''In which society are you most likely to get shot?'' ,the answer jumps right off the page. Stay away from Latinos. Central and South America are by far the leaders in getting yourself shot.

Consider this: In the US there are 89 firearms/100 citizens. In Brazil there are 8 firearms/100 citizens.

In the US there are 3 homicides by firearm/100,000 citizens. In Brazil there are 18 homicides by firearm/100,000 citizens.

I could go on: Venezuela, 38 homicides by firearm/100,000 citizens; Guatemala 35; Honduras 68; Colombia 28; El Salvador 40; Dominican Rep 16; Ecuador 13.

Finally, the US has 9 times the number of firearms/citizen as Chile, yet the deaths by firearm/100,000 citizens are only about 1.5 times.

These numbers clearly show that the availability of firearms is not the determining factor in deaths by gun, but culture may play the most important role.

You can't just make stuff up!

It's poor law & order in the latino countries that lead to higher crime, which leads to higher gun violence.
Furthermore you're not even considering the problem of illegal firearms, which is a far greater problem in the SA countries than the States.

Again, the more appropriate comparison should be between the US and Canada (I won't even say European countries because they are more densely populated as a whole. Of course Canada is also far less densely populated than the US but it's probably the closest comparison in terms of culture as a whole apart from gun laws), and the conclusion is pretty clear. More guns means more likely to result in deaths.

Poor steak salesman. If he had a gun, maybe he would have lived.

I see someone has complicated fingers in this forum.

You might wanna be careful with your words, BH. Some of the people that run this place don't seem to be very intelligent. Please let me know how your Kinder Surprise experience goes.

My fingers were always too stubby to assemble the toys in my Kinder Surprises. Not to mention too complicated

I know this because last week a US couple returning to Oregon from Vancouver were held by Homeland Security for hours, because they were bringing some Kinder Surprises back for their grandchild. But it was not total red tape - in the end they actually allowed them to take the Kinders with them, now that they were fully informed of the dangers of giving them to very small kids without supervising the assembly.
Yeah I looked this up and read on Wikipedia that the worldwide deaths caused by Kinder Surprise is something like less than 10. The toy comes enclosed in this pretty big capsule that would be pretty hard to swallow even if the child tried, and the toy parts, once they're taken out of the capsule, are really just like any other toy parts one could get in toy shops.

I'm surprised those Kinders weren't confiscated. But being detaine for hours over Kinder Surprises?

Quote:
You must have been smart for your age. In Canada they are allowed because it is considered that the children who get these are too young to assemble the toys themselves and an adult will do it for them.
Oh wait, maybe you were just too old to be playing with Kinders...................
