    In 2007, the United States suffered some 15,000-19,000 accidental shootings. More than 600 of these shootings proved fatal. -----seems like alot to me

    •  One is too many, but compared to other accidents (0+ / 0-)

      and the total number of people it's pretty low. What's even better is that the rate has gone down so steadily even as ownership has gone up.

      The rate for hunting accidents, which mostly concern me, has dropped faster than the rate has dropped for just about every other cause of accident.

      How big is your personal carbon footprint?
