The whole "question" comes right down to this:
Dave asks the right questions about which death is more worthy of concern - someone killed by a gunshot or someone killed by a car crash? That the behavior that caused the death by either means was illegal or not does not matter. One death is no more or more less important because of the instrument responsible for the death.But the stakes are much higher, since making the right determination about who should - and should not - carry a gun is a potential matter of life and death to a degree unmatched by rules about who gets to slide behind the wheel of a vehicle.
But the fact that there are far fewer deaths caused by guns than by cars does not seem to matter. Nor does the fact that there are probably as many guns as there are cars in the country. What matters is that GUNZ ARE EVVVILLLLL!!!!!11eleventy!
So the answer is to restrict the right and relax the rules regarding the privilege? There are times when I truely wonder if there are folks out there whose smarts leaked out of their heads.
