 We were having a rational discussion here, please don't put words in my mouth or accuse me of saying things that I never said.

That's irrelevant to the gun debate. I stated that other countries have been able to minimize gun violence and your retort was to say there are other ways to kill people so we should ignore guns being a way to kill people despite guns being by far the best way to kill people in the United States.>

  When did I say this? Please tell me! I was talking about how mass murderers can find ways to kill people if that they're determined. 

Citing the true number of deaths each year by guns in the U.S. is not arguing on an emotional level. It's just citing a true statistic. It should arouse emotions because it's so horrifying, >

   When did I say that it shouldn't, or that it isn't?

but you're trying to repress it because it goes against your argument.>

 Another accusation,  all I said was that there are stories behind the numbers.

 The number of times guns are used in self-defense is tiny and outweighed by homicides, suicides, and accidents.>

  It's really not that tiny when you're only very broadly clarifying self-defense.  And guns are used for other lawful purposes aside from self-defense. The fact that they're used more for injuring people doesn't just change that fact.
