yes, less swimming pools, automobiles and blunt instruments would result in less deaths.<quoted text>
If there were less swimming pools there would be less deaths resulting from them.
If there were automobiles there would be less deaths resulting from them.
If there were less blunt instruments there would be less deaths resulting from them.
A "rights zealot"? What's that? Someone that respects others rights and liberties is now a "rights zealot"? Guess the opposite of a "rights zealot" is a "frustrated control freak".
<quoted text>Worked for Stalin. Worked for Hitler. Worked for a lot of despots. You keep great company.
So would less guns.
A rights zealot wants less gun control laws, enabling more guns in the general population, which enables more violence.
I don't see the parallel between Hitler / Stalin meglomanias and desiring less violence as a result of less guns in the hands of the general population.
