I like Mr. Noir, watched several of his videos. But, the video does nothing to invalidate what vieva has said. It's a poorly thought out argument. And, in about 20 years, cars will most likely take less lives than guns if how we treat guns remains the same.
Edit: I'm at least willing to acknowledge that gun violence in the United States is an epidemic. I'm also willing to make suggestions on how this epidemic can be stemmed as opposed to making the same status quo arguments over and over. Not exhaustive by any means, but all gun advocates have used at least one of the following:
"Guns don't kill people. People kill people."
"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
"Let's ban cars, knives, toasters and swimming pools, because those all kill too."
"Laws will only affect law-abiding citizens. Criminals will ignore the laws."
"I would rather have it and not need it, then need it and not have it."
"This is all some liberal, socialist, pansy democratic plot to disarm the American people."
"This is my rifle. This is my gun. This is for shooting. This is for fun." Wait...
And, when all the other arguments fail... Dammit! It's my 2nd Amendment right!"
Hey. I'm glad this guy was able to defend himself based on what we know. And, though I hope to never be put in this type of situation in the future, I'm prepared to defend me and mine as well.
But, the facts are most firearms are used to perpetrate a crime as opposed to thwarting one. More people have been killed by bad guys with guns as opposed to saved by good guys with guns. It's not even remotely close.
This has got to change. Let's at least make it more difficult for people to kill each other. I'll bet murder rates would drop dramatically if murderers were forced to use weapons other than guns.
Just think, how many gangbangers really want to drive through another gang's territory, get out of the car, walk up to a group of rival gang members and try and stab somebody or beat them with a bat? Back in the day you had scheduled rumbles. Now days, gangstas are lazy and guns make the "I don't even have to get out of the car (aka the drive-by)" killing a lot easier.
