Typo..1 in 1,000,000 plus chance of dying by a firearm



And the chances of little kids dying in pools is even far greater. It is high time to make swimming pools illegal in America.



Which is More Dangerous, a Gun or a Swimming Pool?

Actually, going to the Doctor is more likely to kill you then getting shot.

Our ruling So, is the NRA right to state that, nationwide, people are four times more likely to die from medical misadventures than firearm accidents and that figure drops to six times more likely for Florida?

Yes, lefties are simply bewildered on how to respond to an idiotic comparison between swimming pools and guns.

How many cops were murdered by swimming pools last year? The number of cops gunned down was a record 75.

And bicycles are more dangereous than either. Yet we let little kids ride them on public roads, with no supervision, licensing or training requirements or insurance.

If power hungry control freaks felt threatened by swimming pools you could bet they'd be banned.

All of us "lefties" are not anti-gun but we advocate for responsible and safe gun ownership.

I own several including shotguns, semi-auto handguns and an AK-47 and I believe that everyone should be required to demonstrate a level of familiarity, if not proficiency, with firearms before they can purchase or own one. Familiarity can be demonstrated by presenting a military ID card, law enforcement credentials, etc. or taking a certified gun safety course.

Gun ownership and gun safety go hand-in-hand and I don't want any idiot who doesn't know one end of a firearm from the other, handling one, let alone owning one.
