    No - but I forget the exact Stats - but more people die in the States from falling down stairs than guns - I think I have that right
    Sure someone will correct it if I wrong-a

    Wouldn't surprise me if true.

    People are stupid and die in some needless ways.

    I almost got cleaned out by a camper van the other day by them crossing the centerline on a corner.
    Not saying I would have died if we did collide, but got me thinking.

    No matter how we think we are in control and are safe... we are not. There is always some other fuckwit that can ruin your day.

    Just read on Stuff that he was shot by someone he was hunting with. Hope he is OK. Be safe and identify your target.

    Flat earthers the lot of them I reckon. They are clearly trying to disprove Darwinisim. Stupidity is natures way of weeding our the dumb ones which strengthens the gene pool of those remaining.
