Speaking of Brits,  shouldn't we impose a Travel ban on Britain and Ireland etc etc?  Till we figure out how to deal with the White Terrorists we already have here.  It was a White man that commited the Largest Mass Shooting of all time and thats where all these immigrant white people came from.

   Im mocking Trump supporters if you dont get the satire,  sarcasm is hard to display through text.

No no - you don't get to retreat to that line. You refer to white people, Christians, republicans and conservatives as monolithic entities who all think and act the same way. I have never once seen you post something about racist Asians, child-molesting Indians, gamergate perverts, or slave-trafficking Muslims. You're not interested in fighting racism as a principled stance - no you're gunning for "white" racists. So good news - you're not a peacock; you're bigoted and racist. Did you let some fucked up white person who called themselves a Christian do that to you?.

I think that when you attach yourself to the worst massacre in modern history as a means of boosting your social profile you might expect a wide variety of responses from all corners of society.

It is, but it also says something about the other side. So triggered they have to resort to death threats.

Authoritarian collectivist like yourself who advocate civilian disarmament are not interested in rational thinking or history.

I am here strictly to opine on the giving away of his property for no good reason.  I disavow anyone who would levy death threats against this man or anyone who decided to do what he did.

The United States has more guns and gun deaths than any other developed country in the world, researchers found.

A study by two New York City cardiologists found that the U.S. has 88 guns per 100 people and 10 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people - more than any of the other 27 developed countries they studied.

Japan, on the other hand, had only .6 guns per 100 people and .06 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people, making it the country with both the fewest guns per capita and the fewest gun-related deaths.

Drs. Sripal Bangalore, who works at NYU Langone Medical Center, and Dr. Franz Messerli of St. Luke's Medical Center studied the statistics of guns per capita and gun deaths. They used firearm injury data from the World Health Organization and guns per capita data from the Small Arms Survey to put together a list of 27 developed countries.

They said they carried out their study because of what they said are seemingly baseless claims on either side of the gun control debate.

"I think we need more of what I would call evidence-based discussion and not merely people pulling things out of their hats," Bangalore said. "We hear time and time again about these shootings, especially in the last year or so. A lot of claims are made…so we wanted to look at the data and see if any of this holds water."

They concluded that more guns do not make people safer.

David Hemenway, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health who specializes in injury research and is considered one of the top gun violence researchers in the country, said the there's "no question" that the relationship between guns and gun deaths is real.

"It shouldn't be really a surprise to people," Hemenway said.

There are some caveats to the data, such as countries' records of illegal guns, but it seems to be "reasonable" and on par with previous research, Hemenway said.

The National Rifle Association did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com request for comment.

A father in Indiana is facing five felonies after inadvertently shooting his 9-year-old daughter while he says he was teaching his three children not to play with guns, later telling a responding officer: “She’s dead, she’s dead. I thought it was empty.”

Eric Hummel, 33, shot Olivia Hummel once in the head just after telling his two sons about the danger of handguns in the family’s home in Hobart on Saturday. The girl died less than 30 minutes later, the Chicago Tribune reports.

 

A responding officer found Hummel kneeling next to his daughter in a bedroom doorway, according to a probable cause affidavit cited by the newspaper.

“She’s dead, she’s dead,” Hummel said. “I thought it was empty.”

Hummel continued: “I was showing the boys the gun and told them not to ever play with it because it can kill someone. Then she walked in the room and I pointed it at her and pulled the trigger, thinking it was empty.”

The girl, who was shot once in the head from as little as 2 feet away, was later pronounced at St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart, some 25 minutes after police responded to the family’s home. Her death was ruled a homicide following an autopsy on Monday, according to Hobart Police Lt. James Gonzales.

Hummel’s two sons told police they were cleaning their room when Hummel walked in with his 9mm Glock handgun and said statements to the effect: “You should never mess with the gun.”

One boy said Hummel pointed it at him up to three times and that the gun made a “little pop sound,” according to the affidavit. Hummel then pulled the top of the gun back and forgot that he “put the bullets back in” when he “shot our sister,” one boy told police.
