So, using the liberal logic of banning guns because of tragic (and thankfully, comparatively rare) mass shootings, should we not then ban cars?
We also need to ban ladders, stairs, bathtubs and other tall things because so many people die from falls. In fact, according to the CDC, here are the figures on what kills folks in the United States:
Suicide: 41,149 (of which 21,175 are by firearm)
Motor vehicles: 33,804
Homicides by firearm: 11, 208
More people kill themselves using a firearm than are killed by someone using a firearm. Seems to me we have a suicide problem in this country. Maybe we ought to tackle first.
