You're correct. But we do not live in Utopia. We always have and we always will have needless deaths, be it from guns, bows and arrows, cars, baseball bats, etc.<quoted text>A Needless Death is a Needless death whether it is from a gun or a car, the person is still dead! And sports cars kill more people than “assault weapons” so do motorcycles so while we are at it ban motorcycles and sports cars
I recognize that people who do not own guns are afraid of them. Their logic does indeed come from sources that are silly, like Hollywood or video games.
Then we have INSANE people either stealing guns or have someone else purchase them to commit mayhem, and suddenly all gun owners who have never as much as gotten a speeding ticket are now evil people.
What we are witnessing is classic mass hysteria.
