Ericynot... You're right. But do you make the same observation about statistics to those who want more bans on weapons or magazines? The calls for more gun control laws wouldn't do a thing to make anyone safer and certainly would have no impact whatsoever on a crazy person wanting to get famous with a mass murder/suicide.
Don't use your cell phone while driving. Don't TEXT while driving! Use your seat belt. Eat healthy and exercise.
But none of that satisfies the person who feels like the need to DO SOMETHING even if it won't prevent a future atrocity or do anything to get guns out of the hands of criminals.
And why should we let them?
