Canada shares a border with the US. much of the country speaks the same language, are also well-educated for the most part, and its people have many of the same values and traditions as people in the US, including, as an example, outdoor life and hunting Canada also has several large cities.  One of the STARKEST differences is the way the two countries treat GUNS: The US has 89 guns per 100 citizens. Canada has 33 per 100 citizens.  That means Canada has about a 1/3 of the guns as the US.  The death rate by fiream in Canada is DRAMATICALLY lower:

Adjusting for population, the U.S. death rate by firearms -- which includes homicides, suicide and accidents -- was 10.2 per 100,000 people in 2009, according to the Coalition for Gun Control.  In Canada, the rate was 2.5 per 100,000 people in 2009.

NOBODY is saying that guns are the ONLY difference, but if we are having an intellectually honest discussion about guns in society, it makes more sense to compare the US to Canada then, say, Colombia AND it is impossible, to the point of being completely unreasonable, to not at least note the CORRELATION between Canada's stricter gun laws and substantially lower gun deaths.

10.2 gun deaths per 100K people in the US

2.5 gun deaths per 100K people in Canada

Btw, current Canadian gun laws were driven, in part, by exactly the type of overreaction that I have posted about, following a massacre.  The same is true of Australia.  Canada's arguable overreaction is described here:

again, my post was on topic, you haven't had an "on topic" post since ..... lolz

beside being potentially gay (I guess) . . . and a coward and clearly a little crazy. .  you are just an awful liar:

The biggest liar on the board questioning other poster's intellectual honesty.  It has to be a work.  smh


"It's no secret that a liar won't believe in anyone else"

- Bono

^^^That's your first post. The topic of the post is .  . . wait for it  . . . . .  ME. 

You post lies like other people cant read

between responding to your stalking, I have been doing what I do on these boards which is commenting on various topics . . .  I made this challenge before and you failed . . .   you see if you can control yourself and not post another thing ABOUT ME . . .  and I will bet you I NEVER post a single comment about you in response . . I dont spend my time thinking about you, I just respond to your nonsense because its so freaking insane.  Good luck on this challenge . . . fail in 3 . . . 2 . .

like I predicted . . . fail


Funny how this thread has followed almost the same exact course as the Connecticut thread , lol

yep, fool getting "pwned" all over again so he turns to lies, name calling, and bullspit.

To quote that ^^^comment by Dolo, you had to actually skip over 5 comments ON TOPIC  . .  . . comments I put there to get the thread back on track  . .  and yet. . .  that's just what you did . . .  just as I successfully predicted . . . yet again . . . and the funniest thing is you call me a "fool" . . . you . .  a presumably grown man who actually spends his days and nights apparently thinking about a guy on a message board . . . . . IRONIC


Just about the ONLY thing you've done on the boards too:

don't post anymore loser and you don't have to worry about me responding TO you.


The stalker who denies his stalking . . . admits to his stalking.

How sad is it that a grown man dedicates his life to trying to drive someone from a message board?  Wow . . . .bigger fish to fry comes to mind.

I love the PeanutButterBoy's soliloquies.  Reminiscent of Morgana's soliloquies, except with a little more crazy to them.
