They also fail to mention that both the homicide and suicide rates were already in decline and continued to fall at pretty much the same rate, before and after the gun ban. It's all about pushing the anti-gun agenda.I was upset when I read "homocide and suicide dropped significantly after these laws were imposed" because we all know that while those rates dropped for gun uses, other methods took their place and suicide and homocide is actually up in Australia since then... seemed like poor research that wouldn't pass in a classroom, or an agenda.

There's room to agree, and also room to take issue with being lectured-to.Well, I do agree with Quartermaster that a few people get riled up and are self congradulatory more frequently recently, and that can get annoying. I understand there is more to get riled up about, but at the same time I think people could be more "straight to the fact" in their conversations and less, let's just say, opinionated.
