    Would bang the daughter. Not sure where they got there stats but the FBI recently released their annual report which seems to state otherwise on firearms related deaths.

    wtf? They just put a random number in a couple random states, and didn't even explain what the fuck those percentages represented.

    A chainsaw, a shovel and a gun? I'm surprised they didn't jump all over that. :rofl:

    :ugh: @ them using the VPC as a source of statistics. These people count anyone up to 25 years of age as a "child".

    And this video just gives Obama another chance to say, "I'm not coming after your hunting rifles and shotguns." People like the ones in the video are a small minority of gun owners. Most gun owners own assault rifles, semi-automatic handguns, and partake in all the other rights that Obama wishes to do away with.

    But then again, I don't expect the liberal media to do any better than to characterize gun owners as a bunch of Elmer Fudds living in the hills.

    this is the study that was quoted

    http://www.statehealthfacts.org/comparemaptable.jsp?ind=113&cat=2&sub=32&yr=16&typ=3&sort=a&o=d

    "Causes of death attributable to firearm mortality include ICD-10 Codes W32-W34, Accidental discharge of firearm; Codes X72-X74, Intentional self-harm by firearm; X93-X95, Assault by firearm; Y22-Y24, Firearm discharge, undetermined intent; and Y35, Legal intervention involving firearm discharge. Deaths from injury by firearms exclude deaths due to explosives and other causes indirectly related to firearms."

    What exactly do the percentages represent? A firearm death rate of 10%, does that mean 10% of all deaths in the state are by guns?
