Something to think about:

From Salon:
Death threats. Think about that for a moment. Is there anything that says you have lost the argument more loudly than that? When you make death threats in place of arguments, it’s because you know your argument’s laughable. A joke. Increasingly that is what the so-called gun rights organizations have become. A sick joke. And everything Raymond said — about their hypocrisy, their cowardice and their hostility to freedom — is absolutely true.
As I have said before, gun loon arguments do not stand scrutiny, which is the major reason I don't pay too much attention to what you have to say (not to mention I've pretty much heard them all and found they are Bullshit).

After all the reason that gun violence research cannot receive federal funding is that the law says that “none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.” And this was in reaction to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine by Arthur Kellerman and colleagues called “Gun ownership as a risk factor for homicide in the home,” which presented the results of research funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

That study found that keeping a gun in the home was strongly and independently associated with an increased risk of homicide. The article concluded that rather than confer protection, guns kept in the home are associated with an increase in the risk of homicide by a family member or intimate acquaintance.

So, is this yet another thing you lot are afraid of?
