I am surprised Canuck didn't have some line of poop to spread on this.

What are looking for al?

This is a fact story not poop, will it do?

https://windsor.ctvnews.ca/guns-seized-from-three-vehicles-at-windsor-border-crossing-1.4580466

The Canadian Border Services Agency says more than 20 undeclared guns were seized from vehicles attempting to enter the country through Windsor.

Officials say the seizures were made from three different vehicles from the U.S. between June and August.

Funny/strange those were all handguns, not scary looking "assault"rifles that seem to be used in mass shootings.   Those handguns, IF used in the commission of a crime would be most likely used to holdup a store to obtain money for drugs.  

But guns coming over borders or drugs coming over the border or sex slaves coming over the border a corrupt people will get what they want.   Except, out of all the different contraband, a gun can help  innocent persons protect themselves, not just complete up to no good purposes like sex slaves and drugs.

Keep believing BA but do not check up on what the FACTS show to be true that a home with a gun is not as safe as one without any guns.

It is for a woman living alone and a rapist breaks in.

Obviously, one or more guns in the home increase the risk of being hurt or killed with your own gun(s), compared to homes that have no guns.  

But, are there studies comparing the risks of injury or death by any means (not just talking about guns)?  And then, are the overall risks any greater in the homes with guns?

Exactly right WCMO, it`s a play on statistics.  If someone owns a motorcycle, their chances of getting in a motorcycle accident is greater than someone that never rides.  If you never strap on a parachute, chances are near 100% that you`ll never die in a skydiving accident and the old line from a commercial "Studies show friendly kids have more friends"   Smiley Happy

If you safely handle guns and you don`t have a nut in your family, your risk of a gun accident is about the same as someone that never puts on a parachute having a skydiving accident.  

But yes, if you usually have cocaine and scales on your dining room table and guns in the kitchen, family members high on drugs and drug dealers and assorted criminals hanging out at your home, the chances of a firearm accident are quite high.

I look at gun ownership this way, if there was a home invasion I would at least have a fighting chance of not being a victim and perhaps ridding some scum from the earth that would prey on a neighbor in the future.  The big reason for gun ownership though is, in an economic collapse rule of law will break down and society will become "lord of the flies".   Thugs will roam the countryside (and they WILL have guns) raping stealing and murdering, that is when the prepared and those unprepared will part their ways. 

See, if they take the guns away and the economy collapses, the government isn`t going to give all the guns back just in time for you to protect your family.  The state police will be at their home protecting their families, the national guard (if still on the job) will be busy in big cities, your local sheriff will be hanging from a lamp post.   The government won`t help you, it`ll be up to you to fend for yourselves, I don`t know why anyone would want to make their survive tougher by being unarmed.

Yeah yeah yeah "But that`ll neeeeever happen!"  oh really?  You gun grabber/liberals seem to think Trump is pushing the country in that direction.  If it helps you understand better, then assume Trump gets a second term and the economy collapses due to not letting in more Mexicans and tariffs on those saints known as the Chinese.  Or what if all those dangerous "white supremists" take power and force you to discriminate, you`ll need a gun to defend yourself against them.   Smiley Happy

YES, here is just one

We found two significant, two-way interaction terms in the model assessing whether a homicide in the home will be committed with a firearm versus another method: a significant gun-in-the-home-by-residential-status interaction, and a significant gun-in-the-home-by-age interaction. Among those living alone at the time of death, there was no association between the presence of a firearm in the home and method of homicide. However, for persons living with others at the time of death, there was a significant association between the presence of a firearm in the home and risk of a firearm homicide among those aged 35 years or older (adjusted odds ratio = 16.4, 95 percent confidence interval: 5.9, 45.3). We found no significant interactions in the model for suicide. Those persons with guns in the home were at significantly greater risk than those without guns in the home of dying from a firearm suicide versus one committed by using other means (adjusted odds ratio = 31.1, 95 percent confidence interval: 19.5, 49.6). No variables other than a firearm in the home were important predictors of firearm homicide. In addition to a gun in the home, male sex and living in the South were important predictors of firearm suicide (p < 0.01).
