But yes, deer were there before humans. Humans have no more right to be there than deer. Deer haven’t overrun the country; humans have.


Are you sure they didn't cross the land bridge to this continent like the earliest inhabitants of America?


What, the ones that the Europeans wiped out?

Regardless of how long they’ve been in North America, they’ve certainly been there for longer than cars.

No deer species has been wiped out. There are over 30 million deer here this year. Every two years, that usually doubles. But then there are also all the subspecies which number around 30 of those plus Mule Deer, Elk, Moose, Caribou and whatever else. You must be thinking of Buffalo which have not been wiped out, just drastically reduced.

Deer season opens here today. I have to say, I hate it. But even Peta supports it. :-|

Well extinction means the death of a species, so as there are still humans, clearly that didn’t happen.

The indigenous population was hugely reduced as a result of European settlers though.

Stop forgetting illegal gun sales.

BTW, I agree with the way a person has to qualify there for a gun, however, that's very VERY similar to how it is supposed to be here.

In the mean time...

If guns were illegal, black market prices would go up and would price out petty criminals.

And do you really think nutters like James Holmes would be able to navigate their way round the illegal firearms trade and buy some guns? So in one stroke you’d eliminate accidents shootings, many shootings amongst petty criminals (shoplifters etc), and a fair few of the lone wolf nutcases. All you’d be left with is gangs, and they largely stick to their own anyway; and the police would still have guns of course.

Not that any of you are capable of doing it because 1st, no one person can stop us and 2, you aren't citizens, here.

Want to fix gun violence in America? Go local.
