    Again, it depends entirely on the circumstance. You may be able to argue that there are more situations in which a gun can be lethal, but that doesn't make knives inherently less lethal in the right...
  2. It depends on what you mean by "just as lethal"...

    It depends on what you mean by "just as lethal" which is not a phrase I used. I said that it depends on the circumstance. Getting stabbed in the heart versus shot in the heart will leave you...

    Yep. A negligible decrease proving that people don't need guns to kill each other.
  4. Don't you think it's a bit silly the measures...

    Don't you think it's a bit silly the measures you'll go to in order to wiggle out of the general observation that the lethality of any given weapon is entirely dependent on the circumstances in which...

    I thought it was pretty obvious that suggestion was tongue-in-cheek, but apparently some folks are taking it seriously.

    Australia is an interesting case study. Assuming Wikipedia is correct, there were as many murders that left three or more dead in the 20-years before guns were banned as there were in the 20-years...

    Except as other countries have proven, you take away guns, people simply find other means to kill each other.

    The goalposts haven't moved, they're sitting right where they've always been: If ready availability of guns is the problem then why don't all areas of the country where guns are readily available...

    You mean that city that became economically depressed after the steel mills shutdown?

    Maybe we should outlaw poverty since that seems to lead to crime more reliably than the presence of guns.
  11. Maybe not with a stout tree branch, but there...

    Maybe not with a stout tree branch, but there have been a number of horrific mass killings using knives. At any rate, death by mass shooting is one of the least likely causes of death in America.

    Let's expand this hypothetical: supernatural intervention causes all existing guns to vanish and makes it impossible to create new guns.

    What would happen? People would go back to killing each...
