  •  Wait. So the correlation between gun access (0+ / 0-)

    as gun crime is valid evidence.

    The total lack of correlation between gun access and gun suicide is irrelevant.

    I can see by your efforts to distort plain facts from Australia that this isn't about truth for you.

    Suicide rates did not fall their until they stopped treating the issue as a "gun problem".  You want to completely ignore massive increases in suicide prevention funding, simply because you don't like the where the truth leads.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

    •  Actually (0+ / 0-)

      There is a strong correlation between gun access and gun suicide. Did you miss seeing that data or are you ignoring that?

      I am the one posting the facts (and the peer-reviewed references containing them) about Australia's experience... apparently you're not very interested in the truth yourself. Because, to you, there's no way that having a gun vs not having a gun could possibly change what happens to a mentally unstable person, no siree.
