86. It does not matter where the balance is.
Ok, you're on track. Now throw gun deaths due to ...murder, accident, (edit: I forgot suicide), negligence into the equation. Where does it balance?

Here's the thing: Balance does not matter.

It does not matter how many criminals do criminal things with firearms. I am not going to allow the actions of criminals to be used as an excuse for allowing law-abiding people do use firearms for whatever lawful purpose they like.

Balance does not matter. Criminals will do what criminals will do no matter what. The idea that we can only allow firearms in the hands of law-abiding people if there is some sort of balance between the actions of criminals and the actions of lawful citizens is ridiculous.
