Response to redgreenandblue (Reply #39)

42. But you ARE arguing in opposition to

completely valid gun control positions by insisting on using manipulated NRA false equivalency statistics. When I say USA gun deaths are 30,000 annually, I don't believe that I need to tell people on DU that there are approximately 300 million US citizens. I also don't believe that the cause or circumstances of these deaths (suicide, homicide, etc.) are meaningful in any way toward reducing the total number of deaths by gun in this country.

The remainder of your "helpful hints" follow almost to the letter the NRA talking points of meaningless statistics designed only to obscure the real result of too many guns in too many hands, for all the wrong reasons.

I'm sure that you mean well, in an anal-retentive kind of way, but your NRA bias is showing.
