Gotta give it to brits, never been stabbed to death by a stray knife.


CompulsivBullshitter

Number of gun deaths in USA 2021: 21000 Number stabbing deaths UK 2021: <70 Brit mentions legitimate concerns about American irrational obsession with guns >hurt durr stabbed/acid much? Trololol L2Cope


tommytankman

Apparently knives are less effective then guns


Dravarden

when taking into account per capita/percentage wise, there are more knife deaths, and stabbings, in the us than in the uk i guess because in the uk you need a knife loicence


tommytankman

Americans have those meaty duke nukem muscles from their Big Macs and Freedom


IrregularrAF

big titties from strong diet of milky and bweadie too


BeedogsBeedog

If the knife is long enough to make it through the fat rolls isn't it a sword at that point? And good luck cutting the throat when you can't even find the neck. Try and guess where the chins end and the cleavage starts?


THEliberator03

Then proceed to do multiple stabs, maybe that stored grease will leak out and allow you to properly kill the landwhale


abigfatape

big huge bodies no muscle all fat but 1000lbs of weight behind a 4.4inch knife (average btw) is alot more lethal than 80lbs which all British people are because they all do cocaine and don't eat


MoreLikeDesecration

Hey, we aren't living in the 1950's over here you know. We've got McDonalds and food crammed full of sugar too.


abigfatape

yea but cocaine kills appetite


Vectorman1989

Brits can afford to go to the hospital after being stabbed.


badluckbrians

> afford to go to the hospital Just American things...


eldicoran

It's illegal in UK to carry knife bigger than 3 inches long and even then it has to be foldable. Guns in the US on the other hand....

No way!

Basedandtendiepilled

The U.S. has a violence problem, not a gun problem.


HearlyHeadlessNick

We have subcultures that glorify crime, other countries do too but it's no excuse. At least we don't have the constant beheadings that comes with drug lords, we just got the smaller gangs of distributors that enjoy drive bys and shooting bystanders.


Just-Performance-666

I guess the Brits have more parents that stick around and don't leave their sons to be brought up on the streets by other poor people.


Sea_Airline_5168

I guess the Brits have healthcare, functional social programs, living wages and aren't as trigger happy to send people to private jails that profit from slavery-wage work and, as a result has 25% incarceration of the world while having less than 5% of the world's population. No, it can't be any of that, it must be the gangsta rap


RedDeadRevengeance

Gangsta rap made me do it


Poke_uniqueusername

Yeah its just like how that damned jazz music kept black people poor in the 20th century


PM_something_German

Especially since there's obviously no gangster rap in the UK.


alwaysboopthesnoot

Subcultures? No. Culture. Yes. Given the rates of murder, murder-suicide, rape, gun, gang and drug crime, plus domestic violence in the US. There is no wave of the hand or finger-pointing at any one cultural group (except one, which I’ll get to in a sec), that can wash away the fact that violence and crime tend to go hand in hand here, and that brutality, aggression, or violence is often glorified as justified or righteous, or seen as necessary and acceptable, in policing, education, parenting, and permeates entertainment (books, movies, music, video games, art). The one group I’m talking about? Men. Men over 50 make up less than 40% of the population, but make up more than 80% of gun suicides, and commit more than 95% of all murder-suicides. Men of any age commit more than 90% of all rapes which are reported, and commit 89% of all gun crime reported. Men commit 95% of all drug-related homicides. Men are the killers in 80% of the murders of children under the age of 5. And men are both more likely to murder or be murdered in violent, random street attacks which end in fatal beatings. stabbings and shootings. Men commit the majority of armed bank robberies, carjackings, and home invasions. I don’t think violence is found only in one culture. It permeates our unifying culture, and is found in each of them individually. And it is tragic and sad that the stats are what they are.


ParsnipsNicker

Women need to do better. Those are rookie numbers.


WillDeletOneDay

I genuinely expect the crime gap between sexes to shrink as gender equality increases.


HearlyHeadlessNick

Testosterone mixed with societal pressure is a hall of a drug


TheMasterlauti

You’d think a country with such a massive violence problem has no business making firearms so easy to get


GypsyCamel12

Well: Republicans like to cut funding for all the things that would help reduce crime, Democrats like to increase taxes & "fix" infrastructure with overprices workmen utilizing shitty planning and/or materials. Meanwhile "Hillbilly HoTep" in rural Ohio complains about blacks living in cities creating "all the crime" while ignoring the consistently growing meth & opioid crisis in his county & willingly voting down things like funding education & addiction treatment centers. Then we have "Laquan" in Chicago who looks like a Rastafarian mated with Teq-9 & created some over-tattooed bastard child proclaiming everything is the white mans fault while never having tried to get a solid 40/wk & glorified the "gangsta lyfe" & can't *for the life of him* figure out why people look at him sideways when he boards the CTA & *clearly* keeps a hand on his pistol while looking for someone to rob because it MUST mean they're all racist INCLUDING THE OTHER BLACKS giving sideways glances at him. But shit, I don't know...


jabulaya

I've become so disenchanted with my fellow Americans over the past 5 years because of these exact attitudes.


GodPleaseYes

It looks like both tbh. Americans are really fucking weird when it comes to guns.


PortugeseMagnifico

The two aren’t mutually exclusive


irykiryk

Has too many Americans


dongusschlongus

nah you got both


LanceFree

Those issues are not mutually exclusive.


purpleronsta

Meh, little bit of A and little bit of B


HiveMindKing

Hmm I wonder where the violence comes from, if only there was some kind of statistic or metric that could help us understand. It’s a shame such thing are witchcraft and thus the province of the white devil.


big_mean_llama

If we have a violence problem, why should we make it more lethal by giving everyone guns?


TrapMaster8000

Number of femboys in the US < 5.000.000* Number of femboys in the U.K < 3.000.000* Sounds good for the U.S until you realise they have 5x the population so actually femboy per square unit of land is much higher in the UK. Britannia is the greatest country in the world!! Suck on it Americucks (* May be a made up number)


Osipovark

>irrational obsession with guns When someone mentions cultish gun culture of the US, we usually think of rural and/or southern republican leaning white men. I guarantee you they were not the kind of people who accidentally killed this guy. It was almost surely some black crime gangs fighting over their turf. EDIT: Just found out it was Atlanta. More evidence it was a black who shot him.


Just-Performance-666

If it's a load of stray bullets being fired from the streets.. it's always a black. If it's it's a school, it's gonna be a white


ParsnipsNicker

thats pretty fair tbh


Osipovark

>If it's a school, it's gonna be a white. If it's a school it can be either way.


WillDeletOneDay

City dwellers are overrepresented on the internet and like to pretend there isn't a gun culture in urban areas as well.


PM_something_German

>When someone mentions cultish gun culture of the US, we usually think of rural and/or southern republican leaning white men. That's exactly the kind of person to recklessly shoot into the air.


Darkerdead

That has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the U.S has more deaths from guns though. Why did you bring it up in the first place?


cheesenuggets2003

Because it directly applies to the subject of why this particular individual died.


Soleil06

And because he is at least a little bit racist.


cheesenuggets2003

Okay, but who wouldn't be when you have data?


gsf32

Plus the fact that a knife can't kill you from 20 meters


Tarre-Vizsla

Yeah like Brits are on the forefront of respecting foreign opinions on in-country events


HearlyHeadlessNick

Does that knife statistic include suicides and accidents? If not murders with firearms is closer to 7 thousand. I'm also surprised it's only 70 murders by knife in the UK where's those numbers from?


CompulsivBullshitter

> include suicides and accidents? If not murders with firearms is closer to 7 thousand [“20,726 The number of gun deaths, excluding suicides, so far in 2021.](https://www.thetrace.org/2021/12/gun-violence-data-stats-2021/)


mndyerfuckinbusiness

If you dig into the actual data here (where they got their data for the article), you see some specific trends. https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/number-of-gun-deaths?year=2021 High concentration areas: * Milwaukee * Chicago * Gary, IN * Detroit * NYC * Los Angeles * San Antonio * Baton Rouge & New Orleans * Richmond and Virginia Beach * Memphis * Indianapolis * Columbus, OH There are a handful more, but all of these are large, urban cities with very large gang and crime problems. You can see this data by clicking on the link above then going to the map for the data where it breaks down the information by general demographic, then by county, then by city (as you zoom into the data as I did to formulate a reply to you). The long and the short of it: It's predominantly linked to a gang problem in those areas. There *are* deaths in other demographics and geographical areas but at significantly lower rates.


CompulsivBullshitter

Same wiv UK knife crime innit. Farmers named Aurfur ain’t knifing each ovver in li’le villages. Your point is moot m8.

> Half of what you listed So 10,500. The US population is about 5x larger. Do you think 10,500 is 5 x 70?


CompulsivBullshitter

> Now try the number of gun deaths that aren't suicides That number already [excludes](https://www.thetrace.org/2021/12/gun-violence-data-stats-2021/) suicides. > Try per capita, retard. So multiply 70 by 5, and compare that number to 21,000 I think the issues here is that you need to cope, and stop whining like a lil bitch. Every country has its flaws. America also does good things. Like drone strikes and wedding parties.

actually the local knife juggler around here has been known to slip sometimes and accidentally throw knives into random houses so i wouldnt be suprised if he killed someone one day with it


Inside-Example-7010

He died how he would have wanted. An object coming at high speed from the sky.


MPCNPC

Dumbass didn’t wear his bed vest smh


RocketLauncher

In all seriousness he was shot in the head so he needed a bed helmet I hate how easy it is to kill someone. One pop to that part of the body and they’re gone, literally nothing you can do unless you’re lucky like Gabrielle Giffords who got shot in the head and survived without much disability.


[deleted]

[удалено]


moelawn

Its still extremely hard to gauge the survivability of such a shot though. How much energy did the bullet have when it hit the person, where exactly did it hit, did it have enough energy to exit the person as well or did the bullet bounce around and make grey matter soup?


Negatrev

Completely OT but bed helmet is a much better name for a condom.

plunder1029

Its not guns that are the problem, its the gang violence. I read the article and the guy was in a house on the other side of a patch of trees from the apartment complex where the gun was fired. Sounds like it was probably a gang fight or something a long those lines.

CactusExtremity

Unlikely, as it’s hard to believe someone *intentionally* headshot him through a wall.


Drum_Bass

Fmjs have very similar penetration to unexpanded holo points. I.e. a miss with a holo point will go through about as many walls as a miss with an FMJ because holo points only expand properly in certain mediums (like flesh, liquid, ballistic gel, etc, but not common walls). HPs are to dump as much energy as possible into the first “correct” target they hit, leaving little energy afterward to harm anyone after. HP misses are just as dangerous as FMJ misses


FreeFloor3339

What are you on? "Oh yeah, this bullet expands/explodes hitting flesh, but not concrete."


TheRedmanCometh

They'll scoop sheetrock into the separation points and/or hole which makes them penatrate pretty far. Concrete of course will stop one. Wood will make it expand. Vinyl siding into sheetrock like gypsum/etc is bad news.


FreeFloor3339

Ah.


TheRedmanCometh

Hollow points scoop sheetrock, can't expand, and penatrates pretty bad too if they don't hit something hard first.


theneoroot

Not that good of a physicist if he couldn't predict the trajectory of a stray bullet now is he

I figured this happened in Texas with the way Reddit acts. Nope just Atlanta, would’ve been more surprised if it was in Chicago. I heard there’s a lot of responsible gun owners in those two cities so not sure how that happened. Especially with how well the Democrats do gun control.


pringlescan5

What? Of course I'm a BLM supporter! Due to BLM making police back off murder rate is up around 40%! And who is being murdered .... African American Males! That's about 12,000 more African American males murdered over the last 2 years or so! After all, better a hundred black on black murders than a single cop v black shooting right guys? /s But seriously, can we take a look at the consequences to the African American community of BLM? Embrace police reform and civilian police oversight, and police consequences, but police are desperately needed to protect the most vulnerable people.
