"IF a government agency puts a report out, they use multiple sources (we fucking hope, except in your case because it confuses you). When looking at the report, who's letterhead is on the report?🤔 Oh. Yeah. DOJ😱. That means that DOJ has accepted the findings of the report and are publishing the results." --Olde Dude

Gun Ownership Is Not an Effective Means of Self-Defense (From Gun Control, P 171-175, 1992, Charles P Cozic, ed. -- See NCJ-160164)

Annotation
Guns are used in suicides, homicides, or accidental deaths far more often than they are used for self-defense.
Abstract
This study reviewed the medical examiner's case files for King County, Wash., to identify every firearm-related death that occurred in the county between January 1, 1978, and December 31, 1983. In addition to general demographic information, the study obtained data on the manner of death, the scene of the incident, the circumstances, the relationship of the suspect to the victim, the type of firearm involved, and the blood alcohol level of the victim at the time of the autopsy. Of the 743 deaths from firearms during the 6-year period, 473 (63.7 percent) occurred inside a house or dwelling, and 398 (53.6 percent) occurred in the home where the firearm was kept. Of these 398 firearm deaths, 333 (83.7 percent) were suicides, 50 (12.6 percent) were homicides, and 12 (3 percent) were accidental gunshot deaths. The precise manner of death was undetermined in three additional cases that involved self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Guns kept in King County homes were involved in the deaths of friends or acquaintances 12 times as often as in those of strangers. Even after the exclusion of firearm-related suicides, guns kept at home were involved in the death of a member of the household 18 times more often than in the death of a stranger. For every time a gun in the home was involved in a "self-protection" homicide, there were 1.3 accidental gunshot deaths, 4.6 criminal homicides, and 37 firearm-related suicides. Handguns were far more commonly involved in gunshot deaths in the home than shotguns or rifles. It may reasonably be asked whether keeping firearms in the home increases a family's protection or places it in greater danger.

    So a nancy like you is going to defend him/herself by saying what?

    The real issue is that y'all have lived your lives not being exposed to anything but what you want to be exposed to. You don't have a concept that people will beat you to death for $.43. or maybe just to get a chance to watch a crackermutherfuker die.

    FYSA, They would have already raped your wife to death. While you're watching.

    I make jokes about you watching from your pink princess palaces. but that's more of a note. You're the first to die. You're the easiest target. You're the sheep without the sheepdog. And you expect the sheepdog to come rescue YOU. Because you're the most important MF in the world to you.

    No they're going to kill you because your a kind person that doesn't understand who they are. You are a true lamb. They'll tear you apart. You may hear your wife until the minute they slit your throat. Or not. They may leave you to use you like a little bitch.

    You need to actually see the face of evil to know it.

    So basically, you don't have a defense. You have a retort. All the rest you need to answer first. before you answer that. You're a "delicate" "man" and will die a horrible death if that's what you want.

    Good lord. You grew up where, OD? Aspen, Colorado - carrying an AK because you were scared somebody my try to take your wallet on the ski lift? I grew up Miami when it was the crime capital of the world. You wouldn't have been able to park your car at the Orange Bowl for a football game without breaking down and sobbing every time a roadside hotdog salesman approached you to buy a wiener. You know nothing about anybody except yourself and most of what you tell us about yourself is comically fictional. 🙄

    Aspen is far to fucking liberal for me. Grow up and pay attention. I've told you where I'm from. Even named my home town. I thought you'd be happy to buy some three-year-olds wiener. and what's interesting is that I've lived on three continents. you were bourne in paduka whereeverthefuk, but "claim" to be a miami whore. I got it. You're a whiteboy that can't fit in anywhere except for the streets of Tropical Park.

    I'm still wondering how curt is going to protect herself. He has no real means of protection so far. He'll depend of police that will show up too late to his lily-white driveway, and his lily white home. And his lily white wife, and his lily white arse. The biker gangs from Vancouver, and up from NOCAL will be up to use his house for their bordello and he'll be the pivot guy for the warm-up.

    So you're using the MOST liberal area in the country for the "firearms" deaths in the world? Seriously? This just means you have nothing. ZERO. And it's 40 years old.... Let's see... I had just returned from Asia (the first time), and had spent four years in Europe and four winters in the northern lakota territories by then... You were still reminiscing over your high school boyfriend.

    A "white boy" at Tropical Park. I know you've never been down here. What a fucking ultramaroon. Go back to Aspen where you belong. 😂

    Yup. They are the most liberal and have some of the toughest gun laws in the US. So why would their stats be that bad?🤔 If you use sheeple logic, you would think there should be almost zero gun deaths. If it's nearly illegal to have a gun and carry it, then how do those guns get out of the house? That doesn't make sense to sheep. Next thing you know, they'll make murder illegal.😱
