Indeed, but I think you've missed the point regarding small populations. Consider the extreme:That's why it's called "per 100k population" death rate...can you understand that term? It's not about the total number of people but by the death rate.
Good question, and depends whether you measure homicide by victims or perpetrators.If we were to create say, a temporary state, where the population was perhaps 3, and the minority in the state defended himself vigorously against the majority to the point of their extermination, would that make the homicide rate 66.7%, or would that be 200%?
Obviously, the population is now 1, and zombies don't know they are dead yet.
No. Homicide as a percentage of the population. Of course, I should have asked if it was at a rate of 66,667 per 100,000 or 200,000 per 100,000 so as not to confuse you.Good question, and depends whether you measure homicide by victims or perpetrators.
I’d say it was 67%, personally.
False. When the anti-gun lobby led by the Brady group was demanding a nationwide 10 day waiting period for gun purchases there was no provision for background checks, just the waiting period (this was based on California's 15 day waiting period then in effect). The NRA was the one who lobbied for the background checks. They stated that a waiting period without some sort of check was ludicrous.NRA was actually a pretty good organization to start off with and for most years was in favor of controls etc. but then started to became this sort of right wing lobby led by Lapierre for even the most basic controls like background checks for all sales.
I don't think anyone is trying to "take your guns" just the most basic laws put in place. And for the record, I don't think SF is right in trying to say the NRA is a terrorist org, that is complete crap.
I was just quoting CDC official government figures.According to Table 5 of the UCR, the Wyoming homicides per 100,000 in population is 2.6, California's is 4.6. Interestingly, Washington D.C. was 16.7. The actual numbers are 15 homicides in Wyoming, 1,830 in California and 116 in DC. 15 homicides compared to 1,830......
I guess CDC is now #fakenews?As I've stated before, the CDC has had an anti-gun agenda for many years and has been found to skew their statistics to always overstate gun deaths. Something they don't do with vehicular deaths. It seems that those with an anti-gun agenda just look for the highest possible statistics without knowing the background of the numbers or source, and the CDC is generally the source.
Talking of ole Bernie.As if supporting crazy bernie is centrist.
73 vs. 76, nice. Not that I care. But the way it's going, dems are looking determined to lose.Talking of ole Bernie.
The only non-Far-Leftist seems to be Joe Biden, who, ironically, is disliked by a lot of the Left for his centrism and for being an old white guy, both of which make him redundant next to Trump, anyway.
