By Wallace Freeman The "consequence" of any given action seem highly variable. Dr Mengele was sentenced to a life long South American vacation for mass murder. OJ is still searching golf courses for the "real killer". Most crime results in no judicial punishment.

By Wallace Freeman The FBI has kept records showing that LESS than half of REPORTED crime is solved. The answer is to PREVENT crime by arming yourself. One dead criminal has prevented a plethora of subsequent crime.

By William Dykeman may i say something/ have you ever lived in another nation? studies do show that in other nations crime is about the same as ours, https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/10/2/16399418/us-gun-violence-statistics-maps-charts however even though we have the same levels of property crime and fistfights, and petty assualts pickpocekting, our rate of homicide and gun homicide are exponency worse, studies show the rpesence of guns does not reduce property crime at all, not at all, what it does is increase exponencially the gun homicde rate and the over all rate of serious violencehis chart, compiled using United Nations data collected by Simon Rogers for the Guardian, shows that America far and away leads other developed countries when it comes to gun-related homicides. Why? Extensive reviews of the research, compiled by the Harvard School of Public Health’s Injury Control Research Center, suggest the answer is pretty simple: The US is an outlier on gun violence because it has way more guns than other developed nations.

2) America has 4.4 percent of the world’s population, but almost half of the civilian-owned guns around the world

3) There have been more than 1,600 mass shootings since Sandy Hook

Soo Oh/Vox
In December 2012, a gunman walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and killed 20 children, six adults, and himself. Since then, there have been more than 1,600 mass shootings.

The number comes from the Gun Violence Archive, which hosts a database that has tracked mass shootings since 2013. But since some shootings go unreported, the database is likely missing some, as well as the details of some of the events.

The tracker uses a fairly broad definition of “mass shooting”: It includes not just shootings in which four or more people were murdered, but shootings in which four or more people were shot at all (excluding the shooter).

Even under this broad definition, it’s worth noting that mass shootings make up a tiny portion of America’s firearm deaths, which totaled nearly 39,000 in 2016 alone.

4) On average, there is around one mass shooting for each day in America

By William Dykeman also yes if you have a gun in the home you may deter a burglar there is some evidence of that not conclusive but some, but the trade off is you are 5 times more likely to shoot yourself or a family member than to encounter a burglar, thats an insane exchange

By William Dykeman More Guns Do Not Stop More Crimes, Evidence Shows
More firearms do not keep people safe, hard numbers show. Why do so many Americans believe the opposite?

By Melinda Wenner Moyer on October 1, 2017

IN BRIEF
The claim that gun ownership stops crime is common in the U.S., and that belief drives laws that make it easy to own and keep firearms.
But about 30 careful studies show more guns are linked to more crimes: murders, rapes, and others. Far less research shows that guns help.
Interviews with people in heavily gun-owning towns show they are not as wedded to the crime defense idea as the gun lobby claims.
