This is by far the best thing I've read on Townhall today. It's too bad it doesn't provoke more of a discussion. The one thing I'd like to add is with regard to the comparison to traffic fatalities. While there are too many fatalities still, the rate of fatalities has went down over the years. This rate didn't come down magically. It is the result of regulations that have been put into place over time. There was no banning of cars to eliminate traffic fatalities, just (mostly) sensible legislation and regulations to help lessen the occurrence of and damage caused by accidents. This is really not that different than what gun-control advocates suggest with regard to gun violence and tragedies of this nature.
