Each day, how many motor vehicles do you see or actually use?

You probably couldn't keep track.

Now, how about guns. How many do you see or actually use during the same period?

For most people, not that many. If any at all.

And yet, in 10 states gun deaths actually outpace motor vehicle deaths.

According to a new analysis of 2009 federal government data (the most recent year for which state-by-state information is available for motor vehicle and firearm mortality) by my organization, the Violence Policy Center, the 10 states that experienced this counter-intuitive shift are:

Alaska: 104 gun deaths, 84 motor vehicle deaths
Arizona: 856 gun deaths, 809 motor vehicle deaths
Colorado: 583 gun deaths, 565 motor vehicle deaths
Indiana: 735 gun deaths, 715 motor vehicle deaths
Michigan: 1,095 gun deaths, 977 motor vehicle deaths
Nevada: 406 gun deaths, 255 motor vehicle deaths
Oregon: 417 gun deaths, 394 motor vehicle deaths
Utah: 260 gun deaths, 256 motor vehicle deaths
Virginia: 836 gun deaths, 827 motor vehicle deaths
Washington: 623 gun deaths, 580 motor vehicle deaths

Thank you NRA for making guns so easy to access and pushing guns on ignorant and gullible people with your fear mongering about president Obama coming for the guns. Blood is on your hands.

How many of those deaths were cause by police or criminals against criminals or people defending themselves against an attack ? NRA? Don't you mean the founding fathers who saw fit to protect the right to defend ones self?

Bob is currently getting his ass kicked by me on the Gun Control Topx Poll in 3 different cities.
He's citing a VPC study...so we know about the BS to follow.
But even more telling is the fact he overlooks...in at the OTHER 40 states, automobile deaths exceed gun deaths. And that doesn't even mention injuries that didn't result in death.
Ol' Bob KKK has really displayed his hatrd for rights, liberies, children and women on those other forums and is rattled that he's been called out for it.
He's a guaranteed Obambecile.

Still waiting on a breakdown of your numbers. Of all those people killed in a violent crime last year, all owned shoes. All the murderers arrested last year they ALL owned shoes. Of all the Drunk Drivers arrested last year they ALL owned a pair of shoes. The profile is shoes cause death and destruction according to the figures. I can make any numbers fit what I want but that don't make them reality.

Gun nuts are too brainwashed and misinformed to be capable of any kind of intelligent debate. Thats typical of fox news watching sheep who learned everything they know from watching Sean hannity.

Louiston and other fools denying the facts posted in this thread = Proof that gun owners are retarded babies who live in a NRA sponsored right wing fantasy land where they hope they can get in a shoot out and save the world when the reality is they're more likely to end up shooting themselves or some other innocent person.

Bob is obviously an MSNBC-fueled dolt. A left wing cretin with the sole purpose of being a useful idiot.

Opps. What happened to your facts and figures? I guess if you call someone a degrading name long enough it makes you right.

Debate? I don't see a debate, all I see is a loser who has no facts no proof so must cry like a baby when they can't have their way. Go burn a blunt and you will feel better.

Not even close. Craig slithered away when I cleaned his clock. You're still sticking to the floor in the ooze I stomped out of you.

You gun phobes must all watch MSNBC -#1 "news" network that has been the left's substitute for Pravda. Though Pravda shoveled it in a sane manner.
