    ..very useful function and they help people get around to their jobs and other places. I dont see any useful function of toting around guns by civilians except to feed paranoia and fear and indulge in a fetish of firepower that kills.

      as guns. That is an undeniable fact. More kids drown in backyard pools than are killed by gun accidents.

      Can you point out where I said this?  

      Are you seriously arguing that people should be allowed to buy stinger missiles and more explosive weapons?
      No, I am arguing that cars kill as many as guns, and everyone thinks that's fine, because they're cars. How many diaries do we have on the rec list decrying auto fatalities?

        There is no gun "accident".  In almost all cases its a premediated action. Show me high stats on someone killing a person by purposefully drowning them in a backyard pool or buckling them up in a car and barnstorming it through a cliff at 80mph and then we will be on equal footing.
