Saints coach Payton: 'I hate guns'

He is also WRONG!

Listen to Sean Payton. Carefully. He’s mad. Sad. Frustrated. Passionate.

“If this opinion in Louisiana is super unpopular,” Payton told USA TODAY Sports in a 33-minute phone conversation on Monday, his first interview since Will Smith’s death, “so be it.”

That's right Sean, guns fire themselves, cars wreck themselves, drugs insert themselves into people's veins, etc.

Get a grip on reality. Blame the criminals and the evil within them, and stop sounding like a youtube crusader.

Re: Saints coach Payton: 'I hate guns'

It seems to have worked for the UK; just sayin'

In the United Kingdom, access by the general public to firearms is tightly controlled by law, although this is less restrictive in Northern Ireland. The United Kingdom has one of the lowest rates of gun homicides in the world.[1] There were 0.05 recorded intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 100,000 inhabitants in the five years to 2011 (15 to 38 people per annum). Gun homicides accounted for 2.4% of all homicides in the year 2011.[2] There is some concern over the availability of illegal firearms.[3][4][5]

Members of the public may own sporting rifles and shotguns, subject to licensing, but handguns were effectively banned after the Dunblane school massacre in 1996. Dunblane was the UK's first and only school shooting. There has been one spree killing since Dunblane, in June 2010.

Police in Great Britain (other than Northern Ireland) are not routinely armed.[6][7][8] Fatal shootings of police are extremely rare; there were three in England and Wales in the eleven-year period from 2000/01 to 2010/11.[9] Armed response units are available to deal with incidents, and around 7,000 police officers have received firearms training.

And yet the crime rate is quite high in the UK, with murder and rape on the rise. So tell me... Who and what is to blame for that?

If you take away guns, the gun related incidents will naturally decrease. But if Murder, or crime in general isn't being reduced, then what does that say? It says precisely what some of us have said for years. A person who is determined to commit any crime will find a way to do so, unless someone recognizes a threat and stops them. It doesn't matter what weapon they use.

Re: Saints coach Payton: 'I hate guns'

Consistent with EU trends,[4] the Crime Survey for England and Wales 2014/2015 figures[5] show that crime in the UK is currently at its lowest level since the CSEW began in 1981, having decreased dramatically from its peak in 1995 and by 27% in the past five years alone. For example, 1.32 million violent crimes were counted in 2014/2015 compared to 4.2 million in 1994/95.

Look up their knife murder rate. It alone proves if you intend on killing someone you will find a way. I have a substantial amount of guns in my home. Not one has killed anyone. It has never pointed itself at me. It's a tool used by man....sometimes the wrong way.

Re: Saints coach Payton: 'I hate guns'

But to say that if hand guns were banned the murder rate would not go down significantly is asinine...

I'd sure rather go up against somebody wielding a knife rather than they pull a gun

No need to cross the Pond.

Gun Utopia is already in our country and is wildly "successful"...
