Obviously, that went right over your bulbous head.

Accidental falls are a product of biology and environment, and are essentially expected occurrences given human nature.

There are a portion of accidental falls which occur as workplace injuries, and there is an entire field of law and regulation in place to reduce the risk and frequency of those occurring. Yet strangely, I don't hear anyone screaming for deregulating that particular field of regulation claiming that that have a Constitutional "right to fall".

You have no point.
We don't ban bicycles because a percentage of U.S. cyclists are accidentally killed annually while enjoying their hobby.
Traveling on bicycles is regulated.

What regulations apply to children riding on sidewalks and in driveways, some of whom are accidentally killed every year?

Chicongo calling. Hello? This is Chicongo calling. Does anybody know what the overnight killing tally in Chicongo is?
Can anybody tally up the January Chicongo killings? Can someone please tell us the total number of gang related gun murders in Chicongo since obama left there?

Who has the total gang related gun crime deaths in Chicongo since the city banned guns.

Why are gun laws ignored in Chicongo?

Start looking at municipal codes.

The point is Tinkerbelle, to attempt to prove your position by pointing to raw accidental injury statistics while ignoring the actual frequency of human engagement in the specific activity producing the injuries is disingenuous.

Its an utter falsification of reality.

Get it?

And this fact goes right over your bulbous head:

If "accidental falls are a product of biology and environment, and are generally expected occurrences given human nature"....then by all means the same applies to personal injury/death at the hands of the criminally-minded.

And just as all sane citizens would seek "to reduce the risk and frequency" of their personal injury/death as a result of falls, it follows that all law-abiding citizens would seek "to reduce the risk and frequency" of their personal injury/death at the hands of criminals.

The poor child that was just killed after being in the inaugural parade, a mile from Obama's house, not current Chi town address. Sickening.

My my my. You folks don't like hearing the truth, do you?

First, you cherry pick accidental injury and death statistics claiming that they "prove" that one is more at risk of injury or death from falling than from gunshots.

After being shown that clearly, a simplistic look at those statistics cannot possibly support such a conclusion, because one factor necessary to reach it is missing, you attack the messenger.

I'll say it again, this way:

Count the number of steps you take, or the number of minutes you're standing erect in one day, one week, one month...use a chronological criteria of your own choice.

Now plug in the number of occasions or minutes you handle a firearm in the same chronological timespan.

Then tell me what those statistics you cite as support for your ridiculous conclusions really mean.

Why should we do anything you suggest? According to your line of reasoning we were dead long ago because we were defenseless. Come to think of it, extending your line of reasoning against self-defense we should ban antibiotics, hygene, and boil alerts.

I can't understand why one segment of a population would allow the destruction of its own...maybe the $900 uncle sugar provides for a funeral is instead used for something else by the members of that community...a pair of flashy sneakers perhaps?

You were provided a more closely related example with bicycle use.
Your response failed.

Let's revisit:

CDC:~30% of the American population own bikes.

2007 Small Arms Survey: Estimates 8.7 guns per 100 Americans
(#1 in the world for guns per capita...as we know).

2007: 578 bicycle-related accidental deaths.
2007: 613 gun-related accidental deaths.

Hmmm....

It is you who are attempting to make what is simple...complex.
To do otherwise would impede your leftist attack on gunowners.

If only you felt so passionately about the annual accidental deaths of Americans -- including children -- while riding bicycles.
