      You ask about the most commonly used methods.

        I could rip giant holes in the selective use of selectively collected statistics about things like gun ownership, gun useage , drunk driving. .and on and on and on but you'd just pretend not to have heard it.

        The fist is the most commonly used method of domestic violence. After that you bring in things like.. knives and bats.. but that wouldnt fit your narrative. Cant let reality get in the way of that.

        •  Must be a lot more (0+ / 0-)

          baseball players out there than I knew about, I guess.

        •  From the American Bar Association website... (0+ / 0-)

             * Access to firearms yields a more than five-fold increase in risk of intimate partner homicide when considering other factors of abuse, according to a recent study, suggesting that abusers who possess guns tend to inflict the most severe abuse on their partners.

                   Jacquelyn C. Campbell et al., Risk Factors For Femicide in Abusive Relationships: Results From A Multi-Site Case Control Study, 93 Am. J. of Public Health 1089, 1092 (2003), abstract available at http://www.ajph.org/...

             * Of females killed with a firearm, almost two-thirds were killed by their intimate partners. The number of females shot and killed by their husband or intimate partner was more than three times higher than the total number murdered by male strangers using all weapons combined in single victim/single offender incidents in 2002.

          But I guess those don't fit with my 'narrative' either.

          •  None of what you have posted (0+ / 0-)

            in anyway addresses what i stated. But keep your blinders on. Or hell try reading what i actually said before you jump to hysterics.

            •  Well, I'm not hysterical. (0+ / 0-)

              But I didn't come across the statistics I was looking for in the 3 minutes or so of Google searching I felt your comment deserved, so I just posted some related stats showing how gun ownership was directly related to a five fold increase in the risk of homicide in domestic disputes, which also fit the notion that guns are indeed a danger in domestic disputes.

              If you feel like finding the stats and posting them, you're more than welcome to.

              I won't insult you repeatedly, since as many folks have pointed out, folks turn to insults when they don't have a better argument.  But I'm also not going to respond again, as it simply isn't worth my time, either.

              •  Whatever (0+ / 0-)

                That you cannot focus is not my problem. That you arent analytical and are spewing emotion is not my problem. Your arguing with something that was never stated in the first place. We call that spinning. Or lying. The gop are masters at it. you dont want to answer a question? Just answer the question you wanted to be asked..

                Now try reading my post. Our posts have nothing to do with each other.
