My buddy McKay has a blog… in a recent entry he speaks of firearms, to which some of the replies to his post are completely without merit.
One reply gave statistics about firearm deaths of children age 0-19 (but fails to mention what percentage of those are deaths of criminals, gang members, etc.), a reply to that says “even one is too many.” While this tugs on the heartstrings, we need to realize that there are more accidents and deaths of children by vehicles than guns. There are more accidents and deaths of children involving a trampoline than guns. There are more accidents and deaths of children by falls than by guns.
Using that logic we should outlaw trapolines, cars, and walking/running/stair climbing! After all, isn’t “even one too many”?
