Two hours later, when the dogs burst into the house in the next showing of the movie, Mom looked up and said something along the lines of, "The dogs got a second turkey?" After we explained that it was the same scene being replayed, we had a good laugh.
However, it wasn't as much fun when Grandpa decided it was a good time to talk about the ineffectiveness of gun control laws. First, he said that after Australia put in gun control, it didn't stop shootings. Apparently, that doesn't seem to hold up:
Then he followed up by claiming that when he was visiting Honduras, every man and woman carried a gun, and there were very few shootings. My sister told him she didn't want to live anywhere where everybody carried a gun, while I said I thought they had a large number of shootings. He told me I didn't know anything because he'd been there and I hadn't. I googled crime in Honduras and got this:
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Honduras has the highest rate of intentional homicide in the world, with 6,239 intentional homicides, or 82.1 per 100,000 of population in 2010. This is significantly higher than the rate in El Salvador, which at 66.0 per 100,000 in 2010, has the second highest rate of intentional homicide in the world.After I told him that, he wanted to know how that compared with Detroit. Honduras was pretty much twice as high. That also occurs when Honduras has many fewer guns than the United States. When it comes to arguing with Grandpa, facts seem to be liberal things.
