Here are the results of a study that I have conducted over the last 50 years...people die from natural causes, or disease or otherwise. The thing is we all die sooner or later...WE NEED TO PUT A STOP to these senseless deaths & live forever!

1. This article is poorly written and confusing.
2. What is the REAL point of the study, to encourage people to hunt less and drive more, or is it just a front for gun control.
3. Why not compare additional causes of death, eg, how many people die from cigarette smoking? alcohol consumption? "accidents" that were the result of people doing dumb stuff like hitchhiking at 2:00am or jumping off a balcony into a 4ft pool?
Then we would have a case for outlawing cigarettes, alcohol and idiots.

The answer is #2, and it isn't a 'front', it is an outright call for control.

That's the total difference for the U.S.
"Nationally, there were 31,236 firearm deaths in 2009 and 36,361 motor vehicle deaths according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionís National Center for Injury Prevention and Control."

"They did a state-by-state analysis using government data from 2009, the most recent year the state data is available. The researchers found that there were more than 5,000 more motor vehicle-related deaths in 2009 than firearm deaths."
Thank you! See, now YOU did your homework! Perhaps you should apply for a position with NBC. Seems like you've got more of a grasp of investigative reporting!
