RE: Who packs more batshit? Glenn Beck or Alex Jones
I first saw this video on facebook. From an Alex Jones supporter. From a guy who thinks Alex's performance was near perfect. I quote:

Him: Jones gave it to him...bad brains kill. Knives, fists, guns, nukes are triggered by brains. It's true without defences, a Nation is bust. Love it or hate it. I too would be forced to defend my Family with any means necessary if adversary came uninvited in the middle of the night...so may God help us all
Me: Alex is a genuine crazy person.
Him: suicides due to depression due to side effects that the 'medicines' cause, due to big $ that big pharmaceuticals make outnumber all other causes combined. I too am tired of factoids
Another Alex supporter: Wow, I watched that encounter (it can't be called an interview) today. I don't think anyone at CNN, with their carefully-scripted agenda, was expecting that!
Him: Bad karma (if there's such a thing) coming back to Piers.. for being cruel with people in public, before, other shows etc. Piers had it coming & if Jones lobbies hard.. who knows? I say would-be-gun-owners should be allowed but registered and that's it

My comment involved a lot of writing and deleting, and is I know ad hominem but I was looking to draw him out and let him state an opinion that could be clearly argued for or against. I figured it was best to walk away after the later comments.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

In case your wondering 'Murica, this is why the world hates you, not because of your intervention policies.

They tell me I'm the shit, I'm like 'duh...'

Even though I agree with what this guy is trying to say he needs to calm the fuck down. Cut out the caffeine or something. Damn, five minutes was giving me a headache. I'll stick to listening to Glenn.

While I believe assault weapons should be banned, Piers was unfair in his stats of 11000:38 when the disparity in overall homicide is about 4:1 . Definitely higher in the USA but not such a huge difference.

Sandman,

The most recent year stats on Wikipedia[1] are:
US - 4.8 per 100k - 14748 total
UK - 1.2 per 100k - 722 total

Population adjusted the multiplier is 4:1 as you say. So probably only three out of every four (3.6 per 100k - 11061 total per year) homicides could be prevented by lower gun availability and better social cohesion.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Define "assault weapon", please.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
