  •  And even at twice the rate.... (0+ / 0-)

    Motor Vehicles, strangulation, drowning, poisoning & fire are responsible for far more accidental deaths than firearms.

    Even if that article is correct, even assuming tgeir most dire of senarios, 0.4 deaths per 100,000 is an extraordinarily low rate.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

        The count is already extremely low.

        Which is why these anecdotal diaries exist.
        And why you are trying to steer the conversation to hypothetical appeals to emotion.

        Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
