More on Cars Vs. Guns

Posted on the 25 May 2012 by Mikeb302000
The Clarion published an article about the cars vs. guns situation in Indiana. It contained the following point,
“The bottom line is that one-third of American households have guns, while 90 percent have vehicles,” said VPC Legislative Director Kristen Rand during a brief Wednesday telephone interview. 
“That firearms deaths have exceeded car fatalities in 10 states, and are on a trajectory in the very near future to intersect on a national level, is a tragedy.”
Now that's a slam dunk. The frequency of use and the proliferation of cars compared to guns means guns are 10 times or 100 times more dangerous than cars.
But don't expect any gun-rights folks to admit it.  They've been using the car comparison for so long, it would be too embarrassing to turn around now.  They've got too much invested in the argument.
