Okay, now give me the statistic that shows how many children were killed in car accidents in the last 24 hours. Tell me the statistics of how many children died in the past 24 hours from choking on small objects.

All that was really necessary was either a trigger safety or unloading the gun. Not a law that will do absolutely nothing to lower crime rates.
