I just find it interesting.

In paintball, what if self eliminations vs opponent eliminations occurred at the same ratio?

That's because we have guns of course they're more likely to be used here, suicides are always going to happen though. Japan has double our suicide rate and no guns.

that's the thing with statistics. some nut's gonna say that means guns prevent suicide. nevermind other factors. that's why everyone using statistics for this issue is just blowing smoke. you can't say anything conclusive without all the information, and you'll never have all the information because this isn't the kind of thing that the participants want to keep track. some people pick and choose statistics to support their argument but in this issue you're forced to do so.

The statistics from Australia destroy the falsehood of disarming law-abiding citizens.
But we all could figure out that the criminals won't give up their weapons.
