I hope if you read any part of this post, it will be this part, where I apologise for accusations of a "pro-violence" attitude towards any of you. It's a passionate topic, but that was out of line.
Are you kidding? Most americans will take the accusation of "pro-violence" as a compliment. There are tens of millions of americans who are anxiously and joyfully waiting to vote for a president who gives a weekly go-ahead to assassinate nearly random people (including fellow americans). Don't even get me started on america's "pro-torture" stance.

Do you have any support for that assertion?
No, but when Obama shares his secret criteria used for selecting his targets of assassination, I'll make sure I share it with you.
Until then, we'll need to adopt Britney Spears' mindset:

Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens.

The second, and more general issue, is whether the prevalence of guns in a society increases the number of deaths - by murder, defence or suicide - above what it would have been without that prevalence.
Shouldn't your list also include by "accident". I would guess there are a lot more accidental deaths by guns versus knives or ropes or unlit stairwells. The prevalence of guns would effect that number, yes?
There are about 100-500 child deaths a year due to accidental shootings, yes? Umm, . . . hooray for living in a gun society, . . . hooray, hooray, hooray.
