One point of difficulty is that the early reports and media reports are often wrong on the specific facts. Any scary looking long gun with plastic furniture is an AR-15, if the scary looking long gun has wood furniture it is an AK-47, if it is a handgun it is a Glock.


These terms are used because these guns are in common use (and for Glock, I think it largely has to do with the fact it rhymes well and easily in rap lyrics that have pushed into the mainstream), and because the people reporting them do not know anything, on a purely factual level, about firearms. Back when I used to watch the news before giving up on it, it happened frequently that the photographs shown of the incident would not match the news description.


Nonetheless, it is likely that the AR-15 is used in a fairly significant amount of mass shootings wherein the criminal uses a long gun (which is a minority of mass shootings, rifles are not suited to stealth or surprise). This is not because it fires special or high-power bullets (it does the opposite). It is possible some people think it looks cool and edgy and that has influenced some. The same could be said of many guns of a similar aesthetic type, but it is possible. It seems to me it is most likely because it is, by far, the most common rifle in America. Honda Civics are involved in tons of accidents, not because they are difficult to steer or they are poorly made but because they are everywhere. Go to the rifle range, and there are probably at least as many AR-15's out on the tables as there are shooters. Half the rifles or more at your local gun store will be an AR-15. The advantages and disadvantages of the AR platform in particular don't really apply much to the type of situation under current discussion. A person shooting at unarmed and defenseless people in a 'gun-free zone' is not particularly helped or hampered by this platform as opposed to dozens of others.


DGU's are impossible to count because many are never reported (it's hard for a massacre not to enter the statistics, or a suicide) and most never require discharging the firearm. Even the anti-gun CDC report, commissioned specifically for that purpose, found up to 3.5mm.

Well suicide seems obvious, not to be rude. If given the option and I am not in a correct state, I would prefer a painless path. That is no great statement however likely. I don't see too much relevance in gun suicide numbers as those are a mental health issue and would people be more pleased if they just died in a different more acceptable method? If gun ownership was related to suicide rates the United States would very logically be number one by a landslide, we are not even close as 2020 WHO information had us at 31st.

Accidental shooting you must remember is not likely a civilian shooting someone else. It is police collateral damage, a bit of Darwinian damage to oneself and poor judgement while cleaning or the hundreds of holster shootings into the groin or leg from Glocks that have caused many departments to change service pistols. (Glocks do not have a manual safety, they have a stage trigger. Having a gun in the same pocket as a keychain that could tangle into the trigger path is a bad recipe for the unskilled).

You could almost call them ubiquitous.

I'm not sure if the DGU stat in the chart shows killed or shot. Based on the low number, I would venture that it is killed.
And you are correct about make/model in instances where the perp or weapon wasn't captured. But a couple of years ago I looked up something that happened in my childhood town in 1985. I found info was listed in most instances individually (she used a Ruger 10/22.), but I am not aware of a 'master database'. So any info is going to be skewed by the 'known/reported' (since the number of unreported is unknown), and the disjointed recording locations.

It appears that the Gun Violence Archive Defensive Gun Use (DGU) category is not necessarily when there is a death by the way, based on the link below, but a lot of the instances do involve death. It appears that the total number in the Gun Violence Archive table may be from news stories/police reports? I would think it difficult to comprehensively get a realistic total figure.
https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/q...1-b80987f753b4

By the way, I came across an article that confirms that the Gun Violence Archive only uses news stories/police reports to count DGUs. It also goes into the challenges of trying to extrapolate total DGUs across the country. In short, its complicated....

US rate is 2nd in suicides amongst nations with 100M or more people. Russia is 1st.

US rate of gun deaths is 30th overall. Rate of suicide by gun is 2nd.

The rates do not include failed attempts. Or prevented attempts.

Mental health screening, flagging, and treatment should be part of the deal

That is a insanely selective number as you are eliminating countries by limiting it by size and narrowing until you meet a statistic appreciated. So I have qualms with eliminating most of the world to select from 13 countries and eliminating the whole of Europe. Come on now, there are 195 countries and you took it down to 13 to prove a point. Please use functional stats as percentage of 100k citizens.

As for your last statement, I would need far more info but we are certainly not far apart.

I am not against reasonable rules, I just get frustrated by such stats when used as it demeans a discussion. It’s much like stating that there are more stair falls in a 2 story home vs a ranch. I am fully for reasonable debate toward guidelines, with give and take.

I was staying out and was a bit grumpy from a poor day and probably should not have jumped in. If you feel I was attacking, I apologize, probably should have kept my mouth out of it as I continue to feel this is an exercise in futility. I just think it’s sad as in reality there is some middle ground to be found if people could discuss. I’ll try to keep out to avoid causing frustration for myself and others.

Suicide by gun rank is all countries regardless how tiny they are. And I misspoke as I looked at a ranking from 2016. We are currently #1.

Country Firearm-related death rate per 100K population per year Homicide rate per year Suicide rate per year Total death number per year
United States 12.21 4.46 7.32 40,175

Please use functional stats as percentage of 100k citizens.
I just used a cutoff that accounted for 5BN people as a point of reference for a minor issue of "Total Suicide Rate" as it pertained to the topic. The "Suicide by Firearm is still a /100K and was not filtered by population totals.

I didn't mean to distort the overall point.

Why are you using suicide by gun vs actual suicide numbers? That again is vastly misleading.

Under what reasoning is that number a better debate point than a general suicide count for the country? The method is unimportant unless you are purposely using selective data points. It is duplicitous to set a data point using an entirely assumed reason that suicide would decline if they are requested to change method, that is a public health issue.

This is a sensitive issue for me as a mental health volunteer who has lost many amazing people to mental illness and value them and continue to be angered by the disregard of our government to address an issue that is not proving a debate point by disregarding human lives with this type of statistic as politicians tend to take advantage of tragedies.

This goes entirely back to my statement and much as to why people get defensive.

I am also with you on waiting periods even if they help in a small case (I say that only in example, I do not know if they will help...but waiting a couple days in a depression circle can't hurt as it gives time to seek help. Sadly those requests are often overlooked, but that is for another discussion.)

Again, I am not attacking. This was a selected statistic located in which your answer was obvious based on ownership numbers, but leaves the most important fact off the table. It falls in the same bucket as changing the number deciding a mass murder, the weapon type percentages stay the same.

I again am trying to stay out for today, and I again state that I think we likely have more similarities than differences...this one stat used hit a little close to home for me and my experience and this is my response.

Justin, this is my point entirely, along with the need for a REAL commitment to MH care. The point that was trying to be made (not a fact by any stretch, as info is only obtainable via anecdotal reporting by friends/family and failed attempt survivors) is that most MH professionals who analyze the subset of suicides by firearms suggest that a large number are 'spur of the moment' decisions that may have been prevented without access to that particular firearm at that time. Can anything be done to prevent these instances that are truly effective? Who knows.

It appeared that an attempt was made to pooh-pooh the suicide by gun rate, by pointing out that someone could be successful in countless other ways. IMO, the stat of overall suicide rate in relation to all countries is virtually meaningless in this discussion. The fact that the US is in the top tier overall, and #1 in firearm use, seems that we have several significant factors involved.

Also, I am intimately aware of the stress that those who are in the MH community experience. I commend you on your service. It is not a job it is a calling. People don't realize the enormous emotional capital that is expended daily.

If by attempt you mean successfully destroyed this ignorant argument, then yes, an attempt was made.

We have more firearms here than any other country in the world, so naturally there are going to be more suicides by firearm. In fact, I'm shocked we're not number 1.

What's appalling is your lack of care behind what is causing people to commit suicide, by your lack of care for the overall number instead of just the suicide by firearm statistic. You and many others are so hellbent on taking away firearms that you ignore the real problems.

Thanks for adding your self-righteous indignation and outrage KMay. You never fail on that.

The idea that suicide rates go up with gun ownership (not just suicide by guns, but overall suicide rates more generally) is well-documented.

“Suicide attempts are often impulsive acts, driven by transient life crises,” the authors write. “Most attempts are not fatal, and most people who attempt suicide do not go on to die in a future suicide. Whether a suicide attempt is fatal depends heavily on the lethality of the method used — and firearms are extremely lethal. These facts focus attention on firearm access as a risk factor for suicide especially in the United States, which has a higher prevalence of civilian-owned firearms than any other country and one of the highest rates of suicide by firearm.”

Deertick acknowledged the mental health crisis underlying the suicide crises in this country, and that more attention/funding is needed to address the issue.

I'm not sure if you are just being trollish or you truly have a comprehension issue.

In a firearm suicide, who pulls the trigger?

Go one step back.

What caused that person to put a gun to their head?

Go one step back.

What was society doing while the person was going down a dark hole?

Spoiler alert: probably arguing about restricting/banning inanimate objects.

And that's the issue.


Speaking of suicide: Epstein didn't kill himself.

Arguing about restricting/banning inanimate objects is probably what drives people to suicide? That’s special.

I would prefer to live in a society where there are enforceable laws. Even if they don't always act as a deterrent, at least there are consequences when people get caught.

Granted, many active shooters have a death wish and will never have to face sentencing.

But you do realize that the Uvalde shooter legally purchased an AR-15 on his 18th birthday? I would argue that if he needed to wait until he was 19, 20, or even 21 to legally purchase the gun, that he may not have attained the gun when he was 18. Similarly, if we had to wait a couple of weeks to obtain the weapon after applying for one, there is a chance he would have calmed down by then.
No it's the lack of respect for the laws and law enforcement in todays society backed up by your first paragraph.

I think he did for one reason: his life for decades was one of opulence, luxury, immense wealth, power, beautiful young women, and he knew that was all gone and he would have to live a menial life the rest of the way and wanted no part of it. I also believe the powers that be wanted the same result and purposely enabled him to do it by turning the cameras off and putting incompetent guards in charge of watching him.

For the amount of money he had i am surprised of the girls he picked...sort of a fast food option has Heidi Fleiss put it with Robert Kraft and the day spa...

i do think after a few years, with his power he may of gotten some sort of pardon or favor from many of his political friends.. especially once all the claims against him got resolved and there are new other matters from other people's drama for the media to focus on...

Predators often choose their prey based on what they think they can get away with. Did you expect to find that he had been raping all his ultra-wealthy friends' children instead?

Let’s be clear. You are accusing people, in general, who think your comment about the victims being the ‘fast food’ option for abuse was bizarre, of possibly being pedophiles? Because that is what you have written here.

Are you in your right mind?

Funny when people say lets be clear, they then say something that isnt clear..

i am saying that TO the predator, they were 'fast food' options (someone that can be delivered quickly for cheap and other people used that terms before which i just requoted) someone opined they were easier targets than well off people......your 'outrage' is misplaced but its common these days on the boards to have lots of 'outrage'

well there is a lot of space between 'utlra-wealthy' friends children..



so all predators only pray on the same people that he got away with..i think not...

your comment seems to imply that victims are either from high schools with lesser means that are recruited or children from ultra wealthy friends. I beg to differ


I do believe people that pray on the vulnerable are the biggest criminals out there and should do more time or just as much time as the worst of the worst criminals.....

I was responding specifically to these two comments of yours. I'm not sure why you would refer to child victims of a sexual predator as "fast food options" but to your claim that they were "unsophisticated" I am saying that Epstein would have been less successful in committing his crimes had he been targeting the children of more privileged people (more "sophisticated"). I suppose there is a chance that by "unsophisticated" you simply meant "young"–if so, that's a really weird way of making the point.

well child high schoolers was the point I was making of being unsophisticated versus adults, say in their 20s...

Again you give a non answer. Saying Epstein would of been less successful against 'sophisticated' kids of wealth people, does not seem to include a LOT of woman in between those genres in which he would also be super successful...he was promising victorias secret access i believe which people older than high school age could have easily been fallen pray

Weinstein was pretty successful with woman older than kids in high school who i will go out on a limb and say they were more 'sophisticated'...that the girls that were with epstien..

Weinstein was pretty successful with woman older than kids in high school who i will go out on a limb and say they were more 'sophisticated'...then the girls that were with epstein

we can all agree it was a terrible outrage..not sure why you direct posts to me on this....perhaps you may want to move on..

So, it surprised you that a pedophile chose to prey on children? Weinstein isn't a pedophile as far I know. To your second paragraph, if your point is that my statement doesn't include a thing that it wasn't meant to include, you are absolutely correct.

it didnt surprise me actually he would pray on children....i thought weinstein had victims as well. to show you that you can be a victim without being a child... i guess you feel that if you are not a child you cant be a victim....my point was you can have victims far less than kids or young people of wealthy parents ..not just high schoolers.

however Weinstein was with at least one underage girl allegedly that was 16 years old so if true, plus who knows who else we dont know about, but that would be considered pedophile behavior i would submit,

this is a gun ownership thread..maybe you may want to direct to your responses about the thread......

Epstien was with girls that were over 18...so was Weinstein..not sure why you are trying to make a difference...we can all agree both of their behaviors were terribly bad..

Considering that you seem to struggle with writing in the English language and do not understand how capital letters, sentence structure, or periods work, this is an odd point to try and make.

This is a complete, outright lie. You did not say that TO the predator. What you said was, in post 1024 and as I quoted in post 1026: "its always the people that are looking to troll on an issue that you wonder is it themselves that have the same issue.. ( not saying you, just generally)..."

That is not a statement TO Epstein. Epstein wasn't 'trolling' on the issue, nor is he plural. You are explicitly addressing the people here, the 'trolls', by which you seem to mean the people who think your post is bizarre at best, might themselves "have the same issue", which is obviously being a pedophile. At least have the guts to own it if you're crazy enough to claim it.

What is wrong with you? I've seen a lot of stupid shit on Net54 (just like everywhere in the world), from the low effort scammers to the guy who was virtue signaling about how people shouldn't post pictures of Cap Anson while using a picture of Cap Anson as his avatar, but saying that most people here (nobody seems to think your fast food comment or joke is appropriate, tasteful or possibly sensical, thank God) might be pedophiles for that takes the cake. Are you insane or just off your meds this week?

what is wrong with you.. when i see you attack the poster and not debate the message we all know you are just a trolling....nobody wants a troller...

you also misidentify and spin almost everything i said as well.....i .ive seen some crazy posts as well.....all this fake outrage as well...i continue to advise of the bad actions of these eptsien, wienstien and lets add R. Kelly over and over and all you do is attack the poster. All I keep saying is how terrible these people are and you are calling me insane... so its insane for me to say Weinstein is a sick and terrible person. Please stop lieing and mischaracterizing my posts...Yes I said to Mr. Epstein he looked at the victims as FF options (thats what my intent was that was explained)...and i also said he was a terrible person and should be in jail as long as any of the worst criminals in the world , dont hear you comment a peep on that.. You took the liberty to say i am calling people on the board pedis, when i said 'generally' and was not implying anyone on the these boards AND was not referring to just pedis, was referring to all things as i said AN ISSUE, (example, some people see too much violence in all matters in life, but they themselves have a violence issue )I thought you were the grammar king as i did not say THIS issue.........just a crazy narrative...

facts do not care about your feelings...


this is a gun ownership thread...i am just responding to personal attacks, i am not the one initiating them..

You are definitely unhinged. There's no spin, just your outright lunacy and bizarre pedo claims on open display. Get help.

Everyone can read and make their own decisions..not sure why you continue to banter back and forth, nobody else cares..but you right i am luny to go back and forth with you on this thread. Perhaps you will make another personal attack but is what it is.... we both like cards so does everyone else...maybe you want to put an end to it or make another post which many would deem luny at this point...

You're not getting the support you think you are.

If we can get back to topic instead of this nutter's rants about how disagreeing with his shitposts makes one possibly a pedophile, that would be great...

Each sidetrack off topic just gets crazier and crazier. I'm not sure we can top this one, it's probably peaked.

keep spinning your narrative, we all see where the crazier and crazier is coming from.... you re not getting support with these rants. Also i am not sure why you are cursing considering you attacked my grammar and english language skills...yet I do not feel the need to curse to express myself.

move on son..........now to gun control unless you wish to make more off topic attacks..we shall see.

You are offended by “shitpost” after calling people who think calling his victims the “fast food option” is, at best, in poor taste, possible pedophiles. Priceless.

Some people should not own firearms.

Not a single person this entire time has said every person should own one or that some laws restricting some, like violent felons or the mentally deranged, from possession is unconstitutional. That’s the one thing that has been unanimous.

I do genuinely love that OP dropped a hot topic controversy and didn’t come back for over 1,000 posts.

Again, keep spinning your false narrative. People can read your thoughtful posts and make their own minds. Doesnt look like the great majority here care, if not all, yet you keep providing your gift posts.

Maybe can go on topic to which I say

Yes some people should not own firearms and agree with you 100% on that

1. How do you identify the people who should not have firearms?
2. How do you deny them the right to legally own them?
3. How do you prevent them from getting firearms illegally?

Notes on the above:
1. Some calls are simple (Manson) but many of these people who go on rampages are pretty normal up to that point.
2. Taking away someone's rights based on comments by others (neighbors, ex-girlfriends, etc.) is risky. People who write about murder (Alfred Hitchcock, Ed Poe, Steve King) are not necessarily planning to do it.
3. Look how commonplace illegal drugs are in this country. Obtaining guns illegally would be (or already is) just as common. Gangs don't arm themselves legally, by going through background checks, etc. More gun control laws won't hinder them one bit. In fact, it will make their gun selling activities that much more lucrative.

Past violent or deranged behavior would be a start. They can’t own guns and certainly can’t purchase guns. A problem seems to be background checks aren’t even completed. Your solution to the issues identified above is because we can’t restrict these people perfectly we might as well just let everyone have them?

I offered no solution in my post and the words you are trying to put in my mouth are not at all what I think.

That’s why I used a question mark to, you know, signify a question. Is that your solution?
