@McGentrix,
Add them all together, and it's still far less than America's. China is not a liberal democracy. As for the rest, clearly their gun laws need tightening up, like ours.

Of course it is. Don't be ridiculous.

The topic is if the US is "a solitary example compared to other liberal democracies. " Nothing to do with how many many or how often.


So, if the amount of gun deaths, or their frequency is not relevant, what is?

That really is beyond stupid. I'm sorry, I never realised such idiocy actually existed until now.

I am so sorry for your fellow Americans. They must deal with that **** on a daily basis.

You can buy guns at Asda?


No, because Asda's in the UK where we ignore idiots like you.

I'm not an expert in all things Walmart, but I do know that the size of the stores and services the offer varies greatly from one local to another. In some areas they are the only game in town. The fact that not every Walmart carries weapons doesn't negate the fact that many do. The closest Sears store sells weapons and ammo.

The guy who lives over seas is going to tell us how our stores are defined... You are far from an expert on anything dealing with the US.

Oh yeah? Which Kroger stores are you talking about? I checked out their website and it doesn't appear that they sell guns.

@Walter Hinteler,
I'm so old that I remember corner stores, some of which still exist, probably in inner cities. I'm not talking 7/11 but small individual stores at the corners of streets.

I consider my local market, an ordinary one that I like a lot, because of the people and usually for their efforts re products, a supermarket. This is what they were first called.

Walmart certainly is. My store's space for food goods is similar to the walmart store a few blocks away.

The 7/11 on the corner also sells groceries. I should inform them that they are a super market according to some British twit. Target sells groceries now. Are they now a supermarket?

@McGentrix,
No, they are less than the old corner stores, and supermarkets were so called for being able to carry more goods than those. Given the time, that was true.

I remember a contretemp I had with the local corner store owner. I was, say, ten. We kids went there primarily to get popsicles in summer. Our parents went to IGA, not that much bigger. One day, I didn't have enough money, and said so. It was why I wasn't buying, among the five of us. The store owner sniped at me that I was a rich kid, it was shown on the church donation bulletin.

Huh? For some of our years there and then later our small family was in big doo doo.

Turned out to be a church donator with a similar name.. that caused him to not like a kid. All in all a nosybody, as an old friend would say.

@Baldimo,
Oregon colleges are not gun free zones. A recent court ruling allows anyone with a conceal/carry permit to carry a gun on campus.
http://www.carryutah.com/ccw-articles/concealed-carry-on-campus-reafirmed-in-oregon

Here is an interview of someone carrying on campus that day in Oregon.
http://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archives/2015/10/02/vet-with-concealed-weapon-explains-why-he-didnt-shoot-in-umpqua


The argument that it only happens in gun free zones is ridiculous since many of the places it happens are not gun free zones.

He's talking about Krogers in Germany. Can you at least try to read every word in the post before jumping to conclusions.

Why not just go to a list of supermarkets.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_supermarket_chains_in_the_United_States

Walmart, Kmart and Target are on the list.

You actually do know that you are putting words in other people's mouths. It makes you appear to be a sorehead by pretending you don't see a difference between Walmart and a convenience store. Frankly if our friends in Canada, Australia, Germany and Great Britain assume you are the average American, you are doing a great disservice to the rest of us. Not everyone needs to devalue other countries in order to feel good about ourselves.

And just to satisfy my curiosity, how high does the death toll of children have to be in order for you to suspect it might be a problem?

@McGentrix,
So you are telling us that if it isn't on the list and the business sells it then that store can't be a supermarket?

Any store that sells the majority of those items would be classified as a supermarket even if they don't sell all the items or if they sell more items than are what is on the list.


Of course you completely ignored this part of the page...
