12. 300 million guns...anyone that thinks America needs more GUNS is entirely insane.

Regular folks fear guns, police who protect the folks fear all the guns folks have; everyone is living in fear because of the fucking gun.

Gun lovers make me ashamed to know such people even exist that defend the GUN with nothing more childish NRA-direct talking points....so obvious as to be painful to witness on DU.

More Guns, More Deaths

The research is impeccable and so will be sure to be have verbal feces thrown at it....read it and weep for common folks and for police and for a nation living in fear of the fucking gun:


...............


“If we’re interested in protecting police officers, we need to look at what’s killing them, and what’s killing them is guns,” lead author David Swedler from the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health, said in a statement Thursday. “We know that 92 percent of police officers killed in the line of duty are killed by guns, three-quarters of which are handguns.”

For the purpose of the study, Swedler and his colleagues analyzed the homicide rates of police officers -- calculated as the number of officers killed by guns per number of officers employed in each state -- between 1996 and 2010 using FBI data. To get data on gun ownership, researchers used a survey called the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, which is conducted annually by state health departments.

The study found that of the 782 cases of homicides of police officers, 716 were committed using guns. The top gun-owning states such as Montana, Alaska, Arkansas, Alabama and Mississippi also had the highest rates of officer homicides, while Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island ranked at the bottom for gun ownership as well as police officer homicides."

.................

Police are also terrorized by 300+ million, yes MILLION, fucking guns floating around the land, and who can blame them?

Fuck the NRA, their idiot supporters and anyone even slightly apologizing for the hell they have created and want to keep.
