Shouldn't that be "Tramiel Technologies" founded by Jack Tramiel? I Googled this briefly and found mention of "Tramel Technologies" in the mainstream media, but if you look at Atari-specific blogs and interviews, they list "Tramiel Technologies". Good point, though about how the name was used long after the original company was defunct. It is truly a symbol of videogaming.

Uh, these graphs don't mean anything. (A) Can't have gun-related murders without guns. (B) There is no correlation between gun ownership and non-gun violence. (C) There is no correlation between videogame spending and gun-violence. You can graph uncorrelated data. Doesn't make it true. Disclaimer: I do not own a gun. I am not a member of the NRA. I play videogames.

According to the "Number of guns per capita by country" article on Wikipedia, the U.S. has over ten times the gun ownership of Brazil, and yet according to the Wikipedia's "List of countries by intentional homicide rate", Brazil has over 4 times the amount of homicides. Does that mean knives are popular in Brazil? Regardless, I think I would rather live in the U.S.

So, according to the "List of countries by firearm-related death rate" from Wikipedia, in the US there are more gun-related suicides then gun-related murders? Does it makes sense to count suicides (or accidental weapon firing) as "gun-violence"?

Hey, so looking at the "Number of guns per capita by country" graph on the Wikipedia site, isn't gun ownership itself exponential? So how can gun-violence NOT be exponential?
