I'm not 100% positive but I thought this was from a show called "Boston Legal" and not "The Practice" as is shown in the description.

Actually you're right. "Boston Legal" was a spinoff from "The Practice". My mistake.

This title is misleading and inaccurate. Denny Crane's character in Boston Legal has considerably different views than those of William Shatner. Shatner is more liberal in his views. Although he does not talk about guns, you can get the general idea from this interview with Rush Limbaugh how he feels about the political right. LINK

And this is why we want guns in America. So we can defend ourselves against criminals with guns. (Also to form a militia, and to hunt.)

This is why you have 30,000 gun related deaths a year. TV and reality are different.

Are you saying kids are being killed because of our 2nd amendment? So that would mean that any country that doesn't have the same gun laws would have zeri child murders, right? Remember the mass murders of children still exist in China but with knives. You somehow believe that our 2nd amendment gives us the right to murder people -- it doesn't. It's still illegal. If you make guns illegal, that will not stop the use of guns. If you believe it's possible to stop all gun murders in America by passing any kind of gun regulation, you are delusional.

yes because making things illegal doesn't change how many people use them, that's why all the conservatives are so keen on legalizing drugs.

Exactly so all these foreign people think we need to make guns illegal and that will fix the problem. It will be like when alcohol was illegal -- certainly nobody was creating moonshine because it was unlawful to. And drugs are illegal so nobody ever imports it from Columbia or Mexico. That would never happen if it's illegal. So we need to make all guns illegal and all 300,000,000 guns will be destroyed in and nobody, including the criminals, will ever be able to get their hands on one ever again.

you also have lots of lovely drugs. clever rhetoric doesn't work on someone high on crack....you'd probably be dead. in the uk virtually nobody has a gun and you can usually run away from someone with a knife. it's nice not to feel afraid.

If you can easily run away from a knife, why are there so many rapes in the UK?

Since incidents of rape are higher in the US (with your guns) and lower in the UK (without) can you explain your point? LINK

Your first problem is that you used Wikipedia as your source. Here's a UK source that shows the UK is worse in Europe and even worse than South Africa and US. LINK And here's NationMaster that allows you to compare two countries on a multitude of facts. LINK

Well as Nationmaster and wikipedia use the same source (The UN) it kind of amounts to the same thing. Please note: Nationmaster cites old data from 2002... whereas Wikipedia is listing the more current figures. (Primary Source: LINK Nationmaster is well know to use old data. Though I understand your point of wikipedia... please check the footnotes before dismissing out of hand.

I see you're trying to deny the facts by stating it's old data. So here's a quote from Nationmaster showing it's from 2011, "We're on a freshness drive at NationMaster. No old stat is safe. We know you want to rely on us for the most recent stats on the net. That's why we've updated our crime stats based on a UN-affiliated 2011 report, including data on rapes and robberies. " Even the Excel document you linked to goes up to 2010 so the link I provided is more recent.

Actually if you LOOK at your link on rape statistics, it STATES the source is from 2002. But why let something like the facts get in the way of pig-headedness. And your first link makes no mention of the topic at hand...RAPE. AND you STILL have not answered the original question...WHAT IS YOUR POINT?

I agree that the hidden information that appears when you hover over the link does show the source is from 2002; however, everywhere else on the site says it's from 2011. Including if you actually click on the link, ""Rapes (per capita) by country", European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control International Statistics on Crime and Justice, 2011. " So there are some mismatches as to which date it is so I cannot be certain. What is your take on the other article that shows the UK is worse in violent crime in the entire EU and even worse than the US and South Africa? It comes from a UK source. Regarding my point, that is voilent crimes can increase without guns. Take guns away and people cannot defend themselves so only the criminals are armed. The UK is a prime example of that. Violent crime still exists without guns.

Fair enough... except that if your point is true then the US _should_ be one of the most crime-free parts of the world n'est ce pas? Why is this not the case? Why, with all your guns for protection is the US not the safest place on earth?

My point was that there is no link between the number of guns owned and the amount of violence as a whole. That varies when you look at rural areas with more gun ownership has fewer robberies than in the city where there are fewer guns owned.

Latest comment: True but that is only because it is easier to kill with a gun. If you did not have a gun and you needed to murder someone you would just pick a different weapon.

I saw a good quote earlier today. If making guns illegal will take them off the street, we should make heroin and meth illegal too. Do you get it?
