Covid kills millions.
Covid, even before Omicron, is so much more transmissable that the measures put in place to limit the spread totally stopped the spread of influenza last year.

Not going to give it to the criminal. He won't need it anymore. Simple logic shown to work in most civilized countries, this. Which would you rather disarm? Since you ask. I would start with average gun owners. Someone needs to stop it from escalating further. Criminals use guns because they «have t...Jump to post
This is probably the right thread for it. Norwegian Public Health institute report on Omicron super-spread event at restaurant November 30th resulting in a total of 145 people infected.

The Norwegian institute of public health has made a report on the first Omicron-outbreak 3 weeks ago, when a person arrived from south-africa, went to a christmas party, and ended up infecting more than 100 people at a restaurant. They have done the research of one of the groups that was in a chambr...Jump to post
I like the word «Home invasion». That’s proper! Here, we usually just have break ins and burglaries, and no one ever shoots anyone. So boring. Hope you got them, TriJets!

Absolutely, those numbers from the Heritage Foundation are probably tainted by liberals. 3 million it is, more than 99% of all gun homicides were prevented by good guys with guns, and none of those potential 3.02 million gun homicide had anything to do with merciful and honest to God and flag gun cu...Jump to post
Yes! Again I agree completely, as your numbers tell us , 674 people used firearms to defend themselves in 2020. Countless!! Thats even slightly more than people killed by accidental discharge!

Yes! This! I agree completely! We must not attack amurican culture and decent law abiding citizens with these kinds of dirty tricks.

We had 140 vaccinated people get Omicron in a superspreader event at one nightclub almost 3 weeks ago, so this has been known since the first few days it showed up. However it seems like none of them got seriously ill. (Sorces: NRK, Aftenposten, FHI) The NSW cases are interesting. Everyone at the ni...Jump to post
Two points that spring out at me are these; 1. Assuming that Oswald was a sole shooter, how was he able to bring that gun to the depository without being caught. Surely buildings along the route would have been searched. Let's face JFK was not just 'some politician'. 2. Assuming that Ruby was a sol...Jump to post
LHO did it alone. None of this nonsense even cast 1% doubt about it.

Questioning science is how science itself works. You aren’t questioning, you are denying and cherry picking. You act the same way when reading and reading back on posts in this thread.

I’d say it’s well before that to an extant, what some are arguing is the extent of man- made CO2 on the environment to what the modelling shows that climate research has already diverged significantly from the real world compared to modelling compared to the actual climate sensitivity .

It’s the gun arms race of the USA that creates their insane amount of gun violence. To de-escalate, someone’s got to start, and it ain’t the bad guys. Law enforcement should deal with those, and you’ve got more law enforcement than almost anyone else. If fewer good guys carry guns, you get less gun ...Jump to post

The military being the world’s most advanced and well funded by far, the word «neccesary» loses it’s meaning and thus the right to bear arms. It’s easy. As for how to get rid of the arms race?
