Let's try to keep the discussion on BundyFest and ACTUAL threats of violence--not the ones you have in your twisted minds.
That said, I should probably give an explanation to the morons who cannot grasp the difference between seeing the irony of Meleanie Hain being killed by something that this (mistakenly) believed would protect her. Or is that despite the presence of something which she believed would protect her despite the evidence to the contrary?
The research is out there that shows carrying a gun is more likely to increase the risk of harm to the carrier (which comes from Pennsylvania) and that the presence of a firearm is more likely to lead to harm to the member of the household or close friend than a criminal.
or as the Economist put it Data suggest that guns do in fact kill people.
On the other hand, If she wanted (and the rest of you want) to be fact adverse and you heads start hurting the more evidence is piled against your position--it ain't my problem. It also ain't my problem that she ended up proving "them anti-gun" types correct.
But, you lot tend to be notoriously fact adverse and believe that ignorance is bliss.
On the other hand, Meleanie showed that it can be deadly.
