4. Couple of problems...
"It has been a long standing legal precedent that communities can decide not to allow weapons in public places"

That is not true. The state of Michigan has a pre-emption law which means local communites cannot enact their own gun laws.

" - google search for "man shoots self with own gun" = 29,500,000 results. - google search for "child shot in accident with parents gun" = 88,900,000 results."

The number of Google hits has nothing to do with the frequencey of either event.
