Response to EOTE (Reply #34)

35. No - I was just adding some nuance to your numbers.

there are two gun problems - suicides and violent crime. They require two separate solutions.

And I don't think it is unreasonable to point out that gun deaths are at a historic low and steadily falling. If nothing else, it is necessary to counter the implicit and explicit argument made here that America is undergoing an epidemic of violence when in fact you have never been safer.

That is not downplaying gun violence - it is merely countering the emotional hyperbole that people like you bring to the discussion.
