@parados,
This is a wild west shootout? This isn't the vision that gets painted by people such as Rex/Cobbler. This is a single guy and maybe one of a few such incidents. Does this mean all CC holders are like this? Nope. In fact in the last few years there have been maybe 3 or 4 such incidents.

@Baldimo,
What are you calling a wild west shootout? Does it require 4 or more shooters?

@Baldimo,
This certainly seems like a typical wild west shootout...

@RexRed,
Now, compare the numbers per 100,000 residents, and you get a vastly different picture...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_rate

Of course, you arent honest enough to actually do that, it would actually make you think.

@mysteryman,
Thanks for the link MM

Adding the gun related deaths to Rex's original infographic (in brackets)

Infographic says: Japan 48 wikipedia says (0.06 per 100k )
Great Britain 8 (UK 0.25/100K)
Switzerland 34 (3.84/100K)
Canada 52 (2.2/100K
Israel 58 (1.87/100K
Sweden 21 (1.47/100K)
West Germany(? How old is this infographic?) 42 (1.24/100K)
USA 10,278 (10.30/100K)

Oh I see your point. The USA doesn't look so bad if you say its gun kill rate is 2.5 times that of Switzerland, 5 times Canada and Israel, 6 times Sweden, 8 times Germany, 40 times the UK, and 160 times that of Japan.

Sadly, by your own standard, it seems you are not honest enough to actually think.

And although none of the gun control nut cases want to take this into consideration...EVERY PERSON who was shot dead on purpose or by accident in America...

...was someone who was going to die at some point anyway.

Jeez!
