Again, most privately owned guns in the US will not kill an animal let alone a human, majority of the time it is targets.<quoted text>You're deflecting again. Why would my having/not having guns matter in my assertion that it's ridiculous to compare the alleged deadliness of cellphones to the obvious deadliness of guns?
Guns are made to kill.
Cellphones are made to communicate.
Phones can and do cause distractions that have harmed or killed the user or others.
I'm not sure where you picked your stats from but from what I've read the mortality rates are notably higher for distracted driving, phone usage, than guns. The fact that there are more phones than guns out there I'm sure has something to do with it. The part that some people are so self absorbed that that text is more important than another life is an aside.
So, to me, the original intent does not matter, the outcome does. If the outcome is injury or death, then they are similar even if it's from unintended consequences.
