There are 30,000 gun-related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. U.S. population is approximately 328 million. Do the math: 0.00925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death: - 65% of those deaths are by suicide which would never be prevented by gun laws - 15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified - 17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons – gun violence - 3% are accidental discharge deaths So technically, “gun violence” is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Well, first, how are those deaths spanned across the nation? - 480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago - 344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore - 333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit - 119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years) So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause. This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1. Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equally, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths. Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime, but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault, are carried out by criminal...

I miss WW2 Games and just to play them, I miss Medal of Honor, I miss having games with proper story lines and themes. Good old days.
Man, I miss Medal of Honor, I remember playing Vanguard, I almost completed it but never did because the last never I keep dying, there where no more health pack, and that game sends you back to the beginning of the level if you died, so it was fun at times and BS at others, and that god damn level where you're in a building and a sniper is after you, you need to crawl, REALLY FAST, and it was so difficult and BS that it took me 1 hour to finish it, sense there were 3-4 snipers, and it was the second to last level. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BIsMH0Xmec

I knew it, and it doesn't make me a "Eurocentrist" to know the truth.
SEE! I FUCKING KNEW IT! I have tried to tell everyone this before in a Native American video form @Masaman, where the soltreans, who came from Europe, were in the Americas 5,000 years before the Siberians came in, AKA the modern Native Americans. And, of no surprise, they called me a 'Europecentrist' and said I was full of Shit, but I had three links to show it, and the fucking retards didn't even read them, they just said "oh that's false" even though it was the Smithsonian and RT, but then again the ones calling me a "Eurocentrist" were dindus and muds who didn't bother actually doing research. And Humans came from Europe too, not Africa. https://www.rt.com/news/stone-age-america-archaeologists-445/
