    According to world wide crime statistics, 99.999% of ALL murders are committed with something other than a firearm. So if every firearm in the world was destroyed you would only be 1 1thousandth of one percentage point safer than you are now.

    Can you post a link to your source for this? As much as I'd like to, this is hard to believe.

    Why would an anti-gun organization like that publish a stat like that? It almost makes them look legitimate!

    It might make sense, since the rest of world is "under the UN gun ban blanket" and has to resort to clubs. ;-)
