Donald Trump still not announced as some massive in-joke

9/11


#2327

The article says 3024 Americans killed in the USA by ‘foreign-born terrorists’. It doesn’t say how many were Islamic (maybe Islamist would be a better word). But 2983 of those were killed on 9/11 and apart from a few conspiracy loons I think it’s generally accepted that that was due to Islamists.

Meanwhile 1300 Children are shot each year by fellow Americans.


#2329

Since 9/11 approx 340,000 people in the states have died by guns in some form,murder/suicide or accident.
That’s roughly the same as a 9/11 every 6 weeks.

Unfortunately this always wins out over common sense…

300 million guns in circuculation with 60% of the population owning at least one of them. They will never go nor be confiscated. We will never understand Americans in this respect.

In the meantime the NRA owns Trump and a good number in Congress.

I fully expect the gun trade in 'Murica to flourish.


#2333

That must be causes of death other than Suicide.


#2334

that’s a lot of women dying whilst having an abortion, incredible high mortality rate, wtf!


#2335

Heart disease: 614,348
Cancer: 591,699
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 147,101
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 136,053
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 133,103
Alzheimer’s disease: 93,541
Diabetes: 76,488
Influenza and pneumonia: 55,227
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 48,146
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 42,773
During that same year the FBI recorded 8,124 murders by firearms in the United States, a statistic that would indeed rank below all other entries on this list.

Yep, some moron is going to suggest that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Which is unlikely to help shooting back at somebody on the 32nd floor. Take away the guns and the chance of 500-odd injured and 50-odd killed goes away.


#2337

How the fuck do you die from obesity? Stepping on weak manhole covers?


#2338

By eating waffer thin mints


#2339

Have you got a source for that? I’ve read that gun deaths, all types, are about 30,000 per year. It’s been going down the last few years but not as low as 3,000.


#2340

Can’t be that, they would get stuck in the hole, not fall down them


#2341

Yep. Cos all dem Murcans with guns in Nevada really did some sterling work in preventing this tragedy :roll_eyes:


#2342

Probably conflated with other causes to do with circulation.

Oh, the average gun death rate is nearer 11’000 per year.

Whatever figure you use, it’s a fuckton more than the rest of the developed world.

Second amendment you fucking pinko commie bastard
