INFOGRAPHIC: Real Data on American GunOwners - Yes, Citizens are MUCH safer than Cops w/Guns!

Infographic: Gun Uses in the United States

Posted on May 8, 2013 by Nick Leghorn

Everyone loves a good infographic. You know, those giant images that contain a large amount of information presented it in an easy-to-understand manner? One of our readers sent along the following graphic [source] that puts in perspective the number and type of gun uses in the United States every year as opposed to how they may be perceived. Make the jump for the image.

wonderful BUT

I can't make out any of the reference material.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

if you're a rightie, use your right mouse button to pull up

"Context Menu" while hovering your mouse cursor over the picture, and look for "View Image" option. Then click it.

You'll find that the JPEG is 1029 x 4529 pixels in resolution. If you zoom into the bottom of the infographic, the "Sources" portion, you can clearly make out the links.

you mean, theres a chance

you mean, theres a chance that cops may harm citizens with guns, purely for the fact, that good cops and bad cops have guns.

Yes, i can see the problem,

Well, there you go, bill banning government owning guns in 3...2...1....never

two

two, for double-dribble rhetoric trouble a double.

"you mean, theres a chance

"you mean, theres a chance that cops may harm citizens with guns, purely for the fact, that good cops and bad cops have guns."

the hypocrisy of the "majority" wanting to ban guns because they are dangerous, yet it is not so dangerous if in the hands of the authority

"Yes, i can see the problem"
Making a sarcastic slight, of how the majority may view the discussion in your post, uninterest, even though its anything but

"Well, there you go, bill banning government owning guns in 3...2...1....never"

again, hypocrisy that in the given situation
gun ban people ...good
gun ban authorities....bad

Sorry, i know i probabably have a warped sense of humour, certainly dont mean to sound "statist".....thats certainly a first, dont think i like it.......

Edit: and a wandering mind, who sometimes forgets to proof read.....terribly sorry old chap

LOL!!! I swear, this would have to be the first time I ever had

a 'Like no brah, you don't get my sense of humor. Me? No dude, YOU don't get MY sense of humor!'-'phone-tagging'!!!

So I generated this, just for you and me, my man:

lol.

Gomez, man, you're no 'fun;' if I gotta explain the joke, it ain't funny. Well...suppose seeing as I had to explain it, it wasn't as funny as I thought.o(

lol.

My man, I said,

two two, for double-dribble rhetoric trouble a double.

lol.

ps. hold up, there's a such thing as a "good" statist actor/thug? .o)

to 'say' that, yes my man, I 'get' your brand of sarcastic humor. thus I shall 'double-down' on your sarcasm' w/equal word-play rhetoric of mine, in return.

bah rap bam!

No?

No takers?

Thank you! Thank You, ladies and gents; I'll be at the Catskills every Saturday Night, from 3~6pm; gotta make the buck while the Octogenarian Brooklyn cougars are hot...and awake!

By the way, in case you may have mistaken me saying "double-dribble" as a verbal "dribble" (sloppy drooling speech) as an insult? No, siree. I was referring to the basketball game violation term, thus the hyphen.

But, just so we're now 100% clear, I actually linked the basketball term as a proviso :D

And so yes, I understood everything as you just explained, when you first said, exactly as you said this:

you mean, theres a chance that cops may harm citizens with guns, purely for the fact, that good cops and bad cops have guns.

Yes, i can see the problem,

Well, there you go, bill banning government owning guns in 3...2...1....never

see now, we have two humorous commentary that we both had to explain. now the already 'wasn't meant to be a hardy-har-har, but kinda was'-punchline, is not a punchline, anymore.o(

LOL. but no bigs.oD

I swear, DP R3VOL are the most interesting bunch!
