A shooting isn't the same thing as a firearm preventing a death.

If I'm about to be mugged and beaten to death, I might pull out a gun and the muggers run away without anybody getting shot.

Wow! :o

I would have thought that "criminals" would be at least partially responsible for the amount of gun-crime in a country.

How naive of me. :blush:

The SC was controlling the pace when Bianchi stuck it in the wall.
If there'd been a red flag instead, he wouldn't have been injured.

I'd say yes. Rioting probably is justified in certain circumstances. Most likely as a precursor to revolution in an undemocratic country.

That's positively miserly, compared to the 40m per year Vettel's being payed by Ferrari.

I wonder if anybody at Ferrari has wondered how much they might've had to offer Daniel Ricciardo instead?

Seems like the mere word "Feminist" is rather sexist.

I'd suggest those actually in favour of equality, rather than simply catering to a specific demographic, refer to themselves as egalitarian.
