OK For the year 2010 Speticemia Infections 34,812 (tell your doctor to wash his hands!) Accidental Drowning 3,782 Smoke / Fire exposure 2,782 Falls 26,009 "non transport" 82,898 poisoning 33,041 Drug induced 40,393 Alcohol 25,692 Accidental Shooting 606 Now, not to minimize those deaths. That's 606 lives. If you want to focus on it, how about realizing that most of those are still by illegally obtained firearms in urban environments. You hear about the scholarship winning kid of the heart surgeon being accidentally shot because it is so damn rare. Based on this logic we should ban alcohol and cars.

In a nation that already has more than 200 million guns, gun control does little other than make the work of rapists, robbers, murderers and nuts like Adam Lanza easier. When faced with gun control laws, the law abiding citizen has no choice other than to disarm or become an outlaw, but people with bad intentions are faced with no such moral dilemma. That's why the best friend of a rapist or a potential Adam Lanza is the gun control advocate who's working tirelessly to insure that his targets can't adequately defend themselves.
