I am not saying I disagree, just asking for a bit of levity in the matter. It's very rare that wild animals attack humans without provocation, especially in the US.
So is home invasions but it's better to be prepared than to be caught off guard, helpless, defenseless & hopeless.

It's like having a condom handy - better to have one when you need one rather than need one and not have one.
The reality of the issue is that banning something works about as well as terrorism, telling someone they can't do something versus telling them that if they do it they'll get punished, in other words. If it was that easy, we'd not be seeing debates like this.
I agree. A gun ban would solve nothing.

Nutritional labeling provides important information.

With education directed to the consumer, much can be done to reduce the incidence of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other unhealthy conditions.
I ALWAYS read the labels.

As I said, disclose, inform and educate.

But how can you educate people about deadly weapons when you can't even convince them that the world is much older than 6000 years?

You're talking about a small portion of the American poulation.

We're talking about the entire American population.

<quoted text>Hardly it's also very simple, he repeated many times what could have been achieved in two. There is another factor here also , the body size of a 5-8 year old is considerably less and 1/4 to 1/3 an adult so the wounds would be greater. And ultimately death achieved much easier. Actually unthinkable , that's why it is nearly unbelievable.
As I have seen no physical evidence to prove it, I'm not taking the bait.
No evidence to prove what?

I'm Ok with some reasonable gun control.

But what about other killers like DUI's?

Every day in America, another 27 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes. &#65532;
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration FARS data, 2012.

Drunk driving costs the United States $132 billion a year. &#65532;
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration FARS data, 2010

If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk in 2010 had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the U.S. &#65532;

(Lacey, John et al.2007 National Roadside Survey of Alcohol and Drug Use by Drivers: Alcohol Results. Washington, DC: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, December 2009.)

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens, and about one-third of those are alcohol related. &#65532;

(National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. "Traffic Safety Facts 2008: Young Drivers". DOT 811 169. Washington DC: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2009)

Teen alcohol use kills about 6000 people each year, more than all illegal drugs combined. &#65532;
