Things we need to ban before firearms
Alcohol. Roughly 88k people each year in America DIE from alcohol related incidents.

Cigarettes. Cigarettes cause roughly 480k deaths a year. 41k of those are from SECOND HAND SMOKE. AKA they don't smoke... But died because we allow OTHER people to smoke

Vehicles. 30k needless deaths last year were caused at the hands of vehicles. If we ban all engines over 25hp, this number will drop to nil.

There are countless other killers out there. Things we don't need to die from. Things that are antiquated, like smoking.

Yet they aren't as glamorous as gun deaths. So liberals don't care.

So, come on in my leftist friends. Explain to me why guns are evil but vehicles, alcohol, and cigarettes are perfectly okay and we should just put up with the needless deaths they cause each year.



I mean. It IS about saving lives..... Right? Or is it about something else?

re: Things we need to ban before firearms
It really is hilarious to me. More people die from SECOND HAND SMOKE than firearms each year. And that's INCLUDING suicides in the firearm number.

But hey. People who die from second hand smoke don't matter.

Here is a real stat that will lead to the banning of..... water.

360K people die from water every year. Here in the USA... bathtubs, sinks, and landscaping features cause 87 deaths alone.

All kids.

Is it about saving lives or not?

Hypocrisy much?

I have been saying this for years, finally others are starting to realize it. It is well past time to ban assault tubs, fountains, and sinks.

Seriously though, how many people were killed by someone under the influence of alcohol, i.e. drunk, either by car wreck or just shot or beaten to death by a drunk? Shouldn't we just ban alcohol (and do it right this time)? It doesn't matter if millions of people can drink and even get drunk responsibly. We have to think about the victims.

re: Things we need to ban before firearms
The thought is not to perpetuate a logical fallacy.

The thought is to dismiss the basis for which the discussion is originated; that you want to save lives.

Were that the case, you would focus efforts elsewhere that would see a greater return for your time and money invested.

No, obviously there is some other motivation; not just saving lives.

Therefore, it naturally follows that we believe any gun control discussion to be spawned in bad faith. You need to lie about why you care about gun control. Why? What is so heinous about your true motivation?

This is why it's almost always a non-starter.

Well I liken the whole high end gun ban argument to sports cars...the exact same arguments for banning these guns apply directly to sports cars. Why does anybody need cars that drive the speeds they do? A regular car will go up to the highest speed limits in the land. Even in those cars, why would anyone need to go to 120 mph? Why you can go to work and school and do things with regular cars, nobody has to go that fast blah blah blah...reckless driving at these un-necessary high speeds cause many deaths, etc...I could go on but you get the picture. They don't get exorcised to ban these dangerous cars. The point these fools do not get it that it is the operator not the tool used where the problem lies.

I mean, is it wrong?

40k people die from second hand smoke a year. 30k from firearms with half of that being suicide.

Me? No. I don't hang out with the dregs of society. But second hand smoke does affect minority and poor communities more than affluent white communities.

Why do you hate poor people and minorities?
