    Question 22 million violently angry Americans have gun access, study finds

    WASHINGTON — Roughly 22 million Americans — 8.9 percent of the adult population — have impulsive anger issues and easy access to guns. An estimated 3.7 million of these angry gun owners routinely carry their guns in public. And very few of them are subject to current mental health-based gun ownership restrictions.

    There seems to be something missing in this report (study)...hmm...

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    My study discovered that all twenty three gun-haters in this country have personality issues ranging from anger-management problems to paranoia, and all have unrestricted access to computers and the internet.

    Philosophers have been telling us for ages that the pen is mightier than the sword. My study "finds" that gun-haters should be prohibited access to the internet. Just too dangerous to the rest of the human race.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Seems to be an absence of a link to the actual study. Oh well, at least I won't have to carry that out with the trash.

    Even one of the most extremely liberal mainstream media news agency polls, the results are most decidedly against her, and for awesomely good reasons.
