Your figure for gun deaths is actually just homicides. You excluded suicides. My figures are correct.

Your argument about the 2nd amendment is a straw man. I didnt advocate overturning it, rather I argued that many restrictions on gun sales and ownership are acceptable under the 2nd amendment.

Your claim that gun ownership typically prevents “criminal situations” is not supported by any evidence whatsoever. States and localities with higher gun ownership do not show any consistent lower crime rates, and states with lower gun ownership dont show higher crime rates.

Furthermore, the authors of the Bill of Rights did not once discuss guns as a means of preventing crime. They only discussed them as a bulwark against invasions and tyranny.

Thanks for your comments.
