    colorado homicides are about half that of New York. You folks are just too violent. Violence permeates your culture out there. You're always calling people mother fucker and shit.

    Gun accidents are rarer than hens teeth, like 600 per year and falling. Probably New Yorkers who don't know how to handle guns because they've never seen one. But I'll tell you what, when you all do get your hands on a gun all you folks want to do is go shoot someone. What makes you folks so bloodthirsty?

    You end the conversation because you've lost. Call me dickish b because I poke holes in your argument. It all comes down to don't use ginned up numbers to make your case.

      Are on p 97 of the CDC report of Vital Statistics.

      There are some aspects I don't understand fully, such as what an "age adjusted rate" means. The technical notes are on p 111.
      p 97

      The population of NYC is about 8 million, the population of New York is about 20 miillion. From the WaPo link above about 17% of New York adults have one or more guns in the home. The population of Colorado is about 5 million. From the WaPo link above about 33% of Colorado adults have one or more guns in the home.

      If it pleases you, feel free to keep on calling me a liar. But if you'll excuse me this mo'fo' a plane to catch.
