Response to jimmy the one (Reply #25)

30. The number of guns doubled?

Really? In 8 years?

And, of course, the cancellation of LBJ's War on Poverty and the rise in drug use and drug gangs had nothing at all to do with it, right?

And then, of course, when the number doubled again, murders fell, so this means...?

Especially in the types of guns became more deadly. Detachable-magazine-fed semiautos of fix-mag bolt-actions, and double-stack handguns with 13+ rounds instead of single-stacks with 7+ rounds.

And of course, if medical advances are the primary reason that deaths from murderous wounds fell, then wouldn't there be a corresponding decrease in England? But there's not; in fact, the homicide rate creeps steadily upwards.
