[quote:milehighmike:MV8yMDgyMDY0XzM1MzI1OTIyXzRCNzcxOTIy] [quote:musicadi:MV8yMDk3NDg1X0NCNDBCREY4] I did some research, cause I was wondering what this whole US firearm hype was all about and it seems that there are LOTS of other things that need to get banned before firearms, if the lives of humans is of importance here. So here are the top causes of death in the US per year 2009 CDC data - so, only medical cases. Source: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/lcod.htm Heart disease: 599,413 Cancer: 567,628 Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 137,353 Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 128,842 Accidents (unintentional injuries): 118,021 Alzheimer's disease: 79,003 Diabetes: 68,705 Influenza and Pneumonia: 53,692 Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 48,935 Intentional self-harm (suicide): 36,909 Here is a more "general" list (2002 data): Source: http://www.theegglestongroup.com/writing/deathstats/index.php Cause Annually To Date Tobacco: 529,000 526,552 Medical Errors: 195,000 194,098 Alcohol Abuse: 107,400 106,903 Vehicle Accidents: 42,000 41,806 Suicide: 29,350 29,214 Drug Abuse: 25,500 25,382 [b]Firearm Homicide[/b]: 10,828 10,778 2000 data. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_preventable_causes_of_death#Leading_causes_in_the_United_States Smoking tobacco 435,000 18.1% Being overweight and obesity 111,909 4.6% Alcohol 85,000 3.5% Infectious diseases 75,000 3.1% Toxic agents... 55,000 2.3% Medical errors 44,000 to 98,000. Traffic collisions 43,000 1.8% [b]FIREARMS DEATHS[/b] 29,000 1.2% - Suicide: 16,586 - homicide: 10,801; - Accidents: 776; - Legal intervention: 270; - Unknown: 230 Sexually transmitted infections 20,000 0.8% Drug abuse 17,000 0.7% Here is a collection of online data: http://mrwhatis.com/the-number-one-cause-of-death-in-the-united-states-2012.html So asking firearms (mainly used for self-defense in the US) to be banned while half a million people a year die from smoking while another half a million die from cancer (mainly caused by eating unhealthy food) ... is in my oppinion more than ridiculous [/quote] [b] http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message2097485/pg1[/b] [/quote]
The purpose of this thread is to chronicle the oh-so-obvious attempts by certain elements to change public opinion about the 2nd Amendment and the
to own guns.
