if it's true that the gun increases the likelihood of murder during an argument, then why do gun nuts insist that having guns around makes no difference in the murder rate?
also, look at the major english speaking countries, USA, UK, canada, and australia (you can also look at the developed world, too)... they all have the same nongun homicide rate. but when u look at gun homicide rate, the usa is wildly out of sync. it's noteworthy, that the usa has half the world's guns while havin only four percent of the world's population.
so we go back to the simple example, having a gun around during an argument. of course having guns around increases the murder rate... to say anything else denies the obvious example, and ignores the science. now, i'm sure folks will continue to ignore why there isn't a wildly out of whack nongun murder rate in the usa. but the simple fact remains, that if the usa just has a bad person problem and not a gun problem, there would be wildly out of whack non-gun murders too. (to be sure it's possible that folks just prefer to use guns instead of other weapons... but this is still too far fetched, cause if it's true, there should still be non-gun murders wildly out of whack)
what non sense and non answers do ya'll gun nuts have to answer with?
