Sorry, my fault I think.Have you noticed the change of the thread title?
We split this thread off from the previous thread, having deleted a ton of stuff about US gun laws and shootings, and here you are again, talking about US death statistics and the assault rifles.
I was trying to make a few points about the fact that these laws are driven by the media interpretation of the truth and not by the actual truth. The problem being my good examples of this are US based.
Earlier in the thread there was some talk of mental health testing and licencing I thought it was interesting that 2/3 of the gun deaths in the US which are part of the figure used to say guns are bad and we need to ban them are actually suicides. Suicide being the number 1 cause of death of 45 and younger men it kind of an interesting thought to raise for psychological testing of people for licences.
