@TheFix Sorry, this is an insanely stupid point. We closely regulate cars & spend millions combating heart disease. We do nothing on guns.

Actually (stand by for a surprise), "we have done quite a lot about regulating guns.Where we HAVE failed abysmally is in the area of controlling guns in the hands of criminals and the criminally insane.
They always blame guns, never blame gun-free-zones. Thsee tragedies never occur in Switzerland.
If people are killed by cars despite all the "close regulation," doesn't that suggest government regulation is futile? Doesn't that totally negate Enos's tweet? Who's the insanely stupid one?There are 254 million cars in the United States. Slightly more than 33 thousand people die on the highways each year in the United States. There are an estimated 300 million guns in the United States. Slightly more than 32 thousand people in the US die from gun shots each year (roughly half of which deaths are self-inflicted btw). Including gun suicides, the annual rate of deaths per gun is actually slightly LOWER than the number of deaths per car. In other words, guns are as safe as, if not safer than, cars.
Fox, Fox Butterfield, is that you?http://www.jewishworldreview.com/1204/graham120204.asp
Enos is not smart enough to hide his ignorance.
