Absolutely yes.

Very bold and unbreakable statement.

You're more likely to die from electric shock in a house with electricity than in one without.

I could go on..

Don't be coy. Everyone knows that a guy with a big gun and a tiny dick is still a guy with a big gun.

Last time a guy pulled a gun on me, I nearly beat him to death with a baseball bat. Ah, the joys of youth!

Sure.

Only guys with the tiny dicks do own guns.

That's what gun ownership and 2nd Amendment is about.

Ha. The dumb fuck I ran into never pulled it, just pulled his jacket open to show the butt. Hit him twice with his own bar stool.

Well
Two wee stories coming from the land of responsible ( legally owned that is ) gun ownership.
(i) a would be armed robber approaches the bar at the Mallard Bar, Seacoast Road, Magilligan, and says " give us the money"
Barman ignore him, it is repeated
Yer man says
"But I have a gun" as he brings it into open view
Barman continues to ignore him , well not quite, he simply nodds in the direction of the large room full of cigg smoke and Ahem, gun toting off duty Prison Officers, all with guns pointing at the "perp" this being there local, dont ya know
Nuff said
Second
A mate of my fathers, when visiting Belfast on business, stops at a red light ( ie traffic type!! )
The passenger door opens and a man slips in
"take us to the Falls Road", ( or wherever )
as he points a wee pistol at the Driver.
Who remains quite calm and proceeds.
At the next stop he simply reaches into his door pocket and produces a quite large "Dirty Harry" type revolver and points it at the perp.
Who for a split second looks quite nonplussed, then concedes defeat and slide out the door again.
Nuff said.

More people die in surgery than from gunshots.

Using correlation to make an argument is a dumb way to use statistics.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Yes indeed
Never, but never, sleep in a bed.
Most people die in bed.
Fact.

The gun is ostensibly acquired for the sole purpose of making the household safer. That acquisition has now increased the likelihood that someone in the house will be shot; can't really argue with that.
