“More than 38,000 people in the United States were killed with a gun in 2016”
But only 11000 were homicides. The rest – 27000 – were suicides… about the same as with belts and plastic bags.
Compare that to 88000 deaths from alcohol per the CDC. Ban Alcohol and you save 8 times as many people as banning guns.
If Europe banned alcohol, over 300k people would be saved!
But 13,566 bars would go out of business.
But, we’ve been there and tried it (with alcohol). That doesn’t work either. Same as outlawing marijuana use. I don’t use it, so, I don’t care if it’s illegal, and would not break the law. If you’re a marijuana user, you don’t care about the law and use it anyway. Same with the gun laws. Non-users don’t have a problem with the ban and gun users are going to end up being outlaws. I don’t think they will let that happen, though! That is a good reason why there is a large belief in a pending civil war.
Guns are a god given Constitutional right.
