61. Nuclear weapons used negligently can kill

By your reasoning individuals should not be deterred from having nuclear weapons.

And also by your reasoning the only person alcohol kills negligently is someone who drinks too much of it, it's rather unlikely that you are going to negligently kill someone with your bare hands.

Cars are actually amazingly safe considering how much we use them and how badly a lot of us do it, you would have to drive at 60mph 24/7/365 for something like 70 years in order to have a fifty percent chance of dying in a car crash.

If you spent the same amount of time with everyone in the public shooting at a sustained rate for 24/7/365 there would be vastly more casualties than from cars.
