Some statistics from the CDC that render the gun-control argument moot. By the logic of gun-control lobbyists we should also ban automobiles and poisons. .................................................. deaths .... population ........ rate ...... adj-rate** 2010 firearm related deaths: .... 31,672 .... 308,745,538 .... 10.26 .... 10.07 2010 vehicle related deaths: .... 35,498 .... 308,745,538 .... 11.50 .... 11.28 2010 poison related deaths: .... 42,917 .... 308,745,538 .... 13.90 .... 13.74 More laws! Connecticut has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the state. Add this fact to your comment about states with gun control have the most crime. The debate should focus on mental illness and treatment!
