How many situations are defused by guns!

As I just said, it's an impossible scenario to argue
It's not impossible, nor pointless if we are discussing whether guns are a net positive in regards to deadly violence. If they were, you should expect deadly violence to go down if firearms are spread throughout the UK's population.
Would you expect that to be the case?

You realise you're comparing carrying a weapon designed to kill to going to mass?

You literally are. You said SAME with religion. You used a fairly specific comparator. You're comparing, and saying it's the same. Chalk that one up as another **** up in the timber chart.
WRONG, your comprehension is abysmal

so 60% is suicide10-15% gangs
10-15% is of the homicides, not deaths by firearm. So in your example it would be 10 to 15 per cent of (38,390-24,432)

there were 90 shootings in Chicago alone over the weekendyou don't think these were gang related?
I do not know how many of these 90 shootings (with whatever amount of homicides) were gang related. I do know that the long-term statistics from various US government bodies put it at 10 to 15 per cent.

I'll read that later thanks Timber.What does Daddy Bill say about molesting women btw? is there anything in his speech about that?I prefer Black people vs Niggas with Chris Rockhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsFBy7y3G04I don't think I have any respect for a man who drugs women to have sex with them so I am not sure I want to have anything to do with an Uncle Tom Nonce like Bill Cosby thank you very much.
read it objectively, much stronger than anything CHris Rock ever said

if it's not gang related why are so few women shot?So it is gang related?
