Cons have to make up their own statistics to support their arguments.
He said mass shootings, not all gun homicides which covers a huge number of suicides and justifiable homicide like police shootings or self defense.

Dims have to make up their own questions to support their answers.

How can you talk about logic while making such an ignorant statement?

A suicide is not a homicide.

Anybody can restrict the scope of their stats to make their comparison look good.

Pools are not more deadly than guns.

On the contrary, it is more logical than you can imagine.

Comparing the use of nuclear weapons to the private ownership of firearms isn't logical to anyone with more than 2 brain cells.

They are more dangerous than mass shootings, no matter how you try to spin in. The number of people killed in mass shootings in this country is very small compared to the number of people murdered, killed in car accidents, killed by medical mistakes, killed by drowning or even compared to the number of people shot in Chicago every year.

Unlike guns, cars save millions (yes, millions) of lives more than they cost. Without cars, the planet could not sustain 8 billion people. People would not be free to live in the country. They would not be able to rush themselves to the hospital when they go into labor. to get food from the store. To have wellness visits with their medical provider. (and on, and on and on...)

What a truly IDIOTIC comparison.

If you want to make a comparison, then compare how many lives cars cost and save, then look at how many lives guns (in citizens hands) cost and save....

I couldn't agree more, the 2 have nothing whatsoever to do with each other.

So, you are now rationalizing mass murders because you want to save your right to own an AK-47. Got it.
