27. Umm, for starters, because alcohol is easier to manufacture, and to transport...

 

Both the supply-side and the demand-side of the markets for alcohol and firearms are completely different. Many countries have successfully banned firearms, or at least certain kinds of firearms. In fact, the US is one of them, considering that there is basically no black market at all for machine guns.

So, the real question is, why would any intelligent person think that alcohol and guns are remotely similar to one another, in terms of the potential for legal restrictions.
