Can anyone make a coherent argument that guns are LESS dangerous than cars? i doubt it... [View all]

Last edited Thu Dec 20, 2012, 02:55 PM - Edit history (3)

guns kill more people than cars in 10 states.

it will be all 50 states at some point in the near future...

edit:

by coherent argument i mean maybe something in an A+B=C format where-

A= some sort of fact or commonly held belief or obvious truth- links to at least semi-reputable sources encouraged!

B= same as A

C= a conclusion.

thank you, you know who you are...

edit 2:
i'd also like to make the point- i'm not asking if YOUR gun is more dangerous to you than YOUR car

of course, it is more likely YOU will get in a car crash than shoot yourself with your own gun

i mean "society as a whole" or "america" or whatever. or as a hole.

what happens on a daily basis with cars compared to the same for guns?

edit 3:
what's the difference between a guy shooting a bunch of kids and a drunk driver plowing into a school bus?
why does the school bus thing never happen?
why are 99% of the shooters men?
