  •  Pretty simple most gun deaths could have been (0+ / 0-)

    prevented whereas most car accidents could not. It's an invalid comparison.

      most car accidents involve fault.

      fault can be prevented.

      we have no collective risk understanding when we read about "snow" or "rain" causing accidents. they don't. the people who accept the risk of operating in rain and snow are the cause.  in fact, most of the time, people are operating beyond the limits of their skill, their vehicle or conditions, and there is the fault and the faulty understanding of risk.

      •  Doesn't make sense to compare accidental (0+ / 0-)

        deaths with deliberate murders.

        MVA's and gun massacres, there is no basis for comparison.

        Just regulate the 300 million guns and stop all the dodges, smoke screens, and kicking up sand diversions.

        REGULATE the guns.
