Very well organized site- But very anti-private owned gun. Sponsors include IANSA. The figures for Australia and UK are interesting. UK's gun homicide rate doesn't seem to vary much over the years. 2009 -724 homicides 18 gun homicides

Very well organized site, but very anti privately owned gun, which makes me suspicious of all of the information on it...having a quote from Kofi Annan as their lead-in doesn't endear this site to me either.

Having said that, I'm not sure there's a site out there that isn't pushing an agenda of some sort, and we as a species need the information to get out there to educate us. And as stated, very easy site to navigate.

I hadn't come across it before- And frankly it makes me a little nervous- It really is agenda driven.

Got as far as here:

Each year about eight million new small arms, plus 10 to 15 billion rounds of ammunition are manufactured — enough bullets to shoot every person in the world not once, but twice.
Yeah, because that's the only thing bullets are ever directed at, right?

I am happy to see so many references to UN paperwork - that means that these wankers will never get anything done.

Jerks to keep an eye out for 'tho!

Question? How many deaths each day are caused by automobiles? But the auto industry is so much larger and has so many politicians bought & paid for.
