10. why is that a relevant statistic? I think the more relevant stat is the one where the activity

we are against is committed by the object in question.

To imply that the number of total objects in the country is more important is to say that creating more guns would make the murders committed with guns less important.

If only everyone had more guns! Then the murders committed with them would seem less important by virtue of a nonsensical statistic.
