35. You call ME arrogant?
HA! Now THAT's the pot calling the kettle black if I ever saw it.

You argue a causal relationship between firearms ownership and crime (in that more firearms equate to more crime)

Firearms ownership has increased over the last 20 years in the US, as well as the number of shall issue states.

Crime has decreased over the last 20 years.

It is patently obvious to any rational thinking person that guns are NOT the issue when it comes to crime. Guns do NOT cause crime. YOU. ARE. WRONG.

This isn't a matter of opinion, this is FACT. Your movement has done more harm than good world wide, distracting from the real issues behind crime and disarming those who would use firearms in defense of themselves, causing street crime to be a fact of every day life in cities like London. But you ignore all this.

I call on you to provide evidence of a CAUSAL relationship between firearms and violent crime. CAUSAL, depakid. That's the key word there. C.A.U.S.A.L.
