    I refer to the obvious: there are multiple variables impacting on suicide and, without controlling for those variables, there is nothing we can deduce over gun control effects. This is all obvious so I don't understand why you find it so difficult to comprehend

    I find it hard to understand why you can't admit being wrong.

    We're NOT talking about 'multiple variables' impacting the suicide rate, we are specifically mentioning gun control and it's so-called reduction in suicide rates...I've shown it doesn't reduce suicide rates, and you keep spinning..

    I'd love to be wrong. It would be much easier if guns didn't have these effects. The evidence shows otherwise.

    I am as I'm talking with 'sense'. Its not possible to make any comment over the effects of gun control without controlling for these variables. You don't have ceteris paribus and therefore you have no means to test gun hypothesis. Catch up now! You've been told this numerous times and the logic cannot be questioned

    NO the 'evidence' does NOT show this...in fact it shows it has NO relation at all

    We've already shown that's not the case. You seem to think ignoring the evidence will work wonders. Each to their own I suppose. I personally find that quite appalling

    "asinine" Can be subjective, friend. The fact that you are now attempting to move the goalposts tells me you are aware that your original comment was perhaps "asinine" itself. You had called it "nonsense", the fact that guns do not have perfect substitutes. Your evidence for this was citing a "30 story building", saying "THAT is a perfect substitute". The fact that a 30 story building is NOT mobile or portable destroys your claim.

    Pro Death for the unborn but anti gun. Do you think that fetuses are armed and dangerous when they emerge and that's why you gotta go in and gettem?

    Apparently, your opinions as to gun control are seated more in irrational fears than in practical knowledge. Your observation not correct.

    Do Guns Cause Crime?

    http://hnn.us/articles/871.html

    The theory that more guns men more violence flies counter to the facts in the US where gun ownership has increased and most States have passed Carry laws and violent crime has decreased over the last decade until just recently which can be attributed to the economy since past increased gun ownership did not correspond to an increase in violence but in a drop in violence.



    This article does not mention suicide even once. I fail to see how this could be considered any sort of contrary evidence to Reiver's.

There are better ways to look at this phenomena and Reiver has tried to enlighten you as to this. I suspect that your illusions as to what motivates those of us who would like to see stricter gun laws, has clouded your ability to be objective as to this.

    Thank you for confirming my point for me. You have once again made a spurious relationship.
