    You're pretending like you're required to do some sort of ritual condolences.  You're not.  

    It's just pointing out that, when someone puts up 1.4 Million gun deaths from 1960, your first and last reaction was to discount one half as suicides.  So seven hundred thousand are discounted as suicides and........the other seven hundred thousand aren't worthy of notice at all.    

    You don't seem to realize that your function as a human being isn't just to knock the number down to the smallest you can, but to be suitably impressed with the enormous number that's left.  

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

      what I thought was a misleading statistic. You'll notice how I thought it was domestic VIOLENCE at first, not domestic in the sense of foreign/domestic.

      I've made my suggestions elsewhere with regards to knocking that number lower each year (which seems to be happening anyway, without further gun control).

      •  I know. That's what's so icky. (0+ / 0-)

        You see your job as minimizing the number posted.  Most humans would think 700,000 to be big enough for its own reaction. You never did.  

        Are we done? Because as I stated above, you need someone else to tell you the truth about how incredibly callous your posts are.  

        That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
