30. Most gun crimes don't involve death either.

At the end of the day, guns do much more harm than good. The statistics are clear. Yes, there are incidents and anecdotes where someone manages to defend themselves with a gun, but they are greatly outnumbered. Like I pointed out, for most people, owning a gun for self-defense actually puts them at greater risk, not less.

Besides, who said I want to deprive anyone of their right to self-defense? For example, if all handguns must be registered and all gun transfers require a background and mental health check, how does that stop anyone from protecting their loved ones (or attempting to)?
