Horror stories involving public shootings has dominated the debate on gun control—But what about handguns, which are far more common than semi-automatics?

Almost no attention has been paid to handguns in the debate on gun control. However, a recent study has shown that the number of children and teens hospitalized from gunshot wounds has risen almost 60% in a decade (between 1997 and 2009). In 70% of cases where a child or teen suffered a gunshot wound, the weapon was a handgun, not a high-powered weapon. Additionally, 19% of these gunshot wounds occurred inside the home, and about 20% occurred on the street.

That’s right: a fifth of children’s gunshot injuries in this country are happening in the "safety” of their own home. Currently, around 500 children and teens a year die in hospitals from gunshot wounds in this country.

What’s worse: It’s easier to get a gun than food. Currently, there are more gun retail stores in the United States than there are supermarkets (51,438 versus 36,569). It’s a lucrative business, with over five million guns being manufactured in the U.S. every year, and another three million imported. To purchase a firearm, you need only to pass a basic background check (fewer than .5% of applicants are denied). Living with a child or with someone who failed the background check does not disqualify you. This is different from applying for food stamps, where yes, in some states, you actually can be denied if you live with someone who is disqualified.

Proponents of the second amendment claim that education is the key to gun ownership. Wouldn’t it be appropriate then to introduce mandatory educational programs for people before they receive a firearm? Or a more thorough check to make sure children or teens do not have access to guns? Funny how in this situation, Republicans seem to support education and oppose abstinence.

Instead of limiting a child’s access to guns, you can get your little girl a pink, lightweight model. Yes, they actually make guns for children.

If I had a little girl, that would probably be her first gun. Liberals are fucked up.

1. I wonder how many of those "children" getting shot with handguns are teenage gang members, or the spawn of ghetto-goblin drug dealers who find daddy's "gat" at the stash house?

2. There is zero chance that there are 51,000+ retail gun stores. Maybe 51,000 FFL holders total, of all types, the vast majority of which aren't engaged in typical storefront operations.

3. I'm a bit rusty as it's been a good 87 minutes since I stopped at the supermarket to grab something for lunch, but I don't recall filling out any forms or waiting while my background check got "delayed" and then "approved" 45 minutes later.

One thing I've noticed over the years is that most people who pontificate about the subject of guns in this manner have zero experience with them. These are the same sorts of know-it-all boobs who spout off on TwitterBookPage about how "nobody needs a Bushwhacker that sprays bullets everywhere," when they've never even seen a real AR (let alone used one).

500? Pssshhhh.

Pools in homes laugh at your measly death toll, handguns. Up your fucking game!

Even conceding the gun vs grocery story bullshit, you can buy food at any convenience store, Wal-Mart, dollar store, restaraunt, cafe, fast food joint, or snack machine. Hell, I can't call Gun Hut and have a firearm delivered in 30 minutes or less. Although, I just had this great idea for a franchise!

That is a laughable, bullshit statement. When was the last time you got a background check at the grocery store? And food stamps? really? You have no right to free food...

Math:

500 children that "die every year" /74,000,000 children in the US = .00006756 = pretty fucking minor "problem"


http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/02/100226212559.htm

Number of children that die every day from choking on food 5. 5 * 365 = 1825 children die each year from choking on food. while only 500 die from guns.

Conclusion, ban food and also go fuck yourselves anti's(with the afore mentioned horse cock).

45 minutes? jeeze. Every time I get delayed, I have to wait three full business days, not including the date of purchase. Which means if I purchase on anything other than a monday, I wind up waiting nearly a fucking week.

A man could starve.

I've had to wait as long as 2 days before, but it's usually 45 min to 2 hours. I still have no idea why I get delayed.

2,500 people a year die in house fires.

60% of them occur in homes without working smoke detectors or fire extinguishers. About 40% are children, and about 40% again are preventable if a smoke detector had been present.

In other words, somewhere around 400 children die every year because their homes don't have working smoke detectors in them.

A smoke detector costs $20 or less; a fire extinguisher $25 or less. Call it $50 per household.


Democrats spend millions and millions of dollars on gun control, on the premise that it's for the children.

They could spend a mere fraction of that money, buy smoke detectors and hand them out (which absolutely nobody would object to), and save just about as many kids.

Which means, it has nothing to do with dead kids, and the liberals are just trying to emotionally exploit people to get what they want.

This. Name a town or metro in the US with more retail gun stores than grocery stores…the media is way out of control.

Look at it this way - if you have a pool at your house, you are more likely to have an accidental death than if you had a gun at home.

But no one is banning pools.
