So there is no other violence that is a public health threat, right, only gun violence????

I said last year that this was going to be their mantra. They are going to repeat it over and over until people are programmed to believe that without guns there would be no violence.

Just like the UK. A violence-free utopia!
Get ready to turn in your guns, then they'll go to work on the knife registry.

So guns are like heart desease and diabetes now! Hard to believe that a educated person could think that way.
no, guns are not the root problem, their use in violent crimes are just a symptom just like heart disease and diabetes are just a symptom of a larger problem. If you drink a soda or three everyday, hit a McDonalds several times a week, you don't exercise regularly, you will most likely end up with both...heart disease and diabetes. There is an underlying problem when it comes to guns and it's societal. Guns are not the problem. Society is. Guns are not the leading cause of violent death.

Even without guns, people will always find a way to off themselves.

It's an educated person, making sure that the argument is framed to their purposes.

“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!”​


― William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Well, this list is from 2018 so Covid isn't in the picture yet...it's still brewing in some lab somewhere. Were this list current this year, you would be correct...it would definitely top the chart by several magnitudes (at least).

Worcester Fire lost 6 guys in the Cold Storage fire. Very sad day for the city. I covered the Providence St station for a shift with 3 others from town and a ladder from Littleton while they searched for them in the ashes. Most all departments in the state helped the city out.
Very sad event that I’ll never forget.

There's very little gun crime in Worcester anyway. The Board of Health seems to consist of toxic politically correct predators, hopping on the bandwagon.

I went to school and lived in Worcester for 20 years. I have always wondered why the gun crime was so low there? Can it be that even gangsters don't want to go to Worcester?

However, now that the BOH is on their Do-gooder virtue signaling agenda, you can bet they will not stop until the IS real gun violence there.

That’s one of the most lamest excuse I ever heard. Same thing with video game causes violence, people before video gameView attachment 472149

I love it. It’s like people being violent and killing each other is a new thing. Once they invented guns that was when it all started. Cain didn’t kill abal it was the rock.. rock control....Once you’ve ban rocks only criminals will have rocks.

Not that I’m going to kill anybody but if I did I’d love to use a stump
