    like if they drove into a mall or a manhattan sidewalk?

    This is a great argument IMO.

    Also if you ban guns you can't shoot back at the driver of the car running you down.

    The only way they would get stopped is by crashing or shot by police or ccw people.

    it's the problem that people (liberals) blame an inanimate object. they dont want to believe that people CAN do horrible things, and they do. they're much better off in their own little world being able to blame a gun, than to say that someone is fucked up in the head and can't take care of themselves.

    it would probably be easier to kill more people with a knife than a gun.

    no sound > loud sound

    Cars are WAAAY more dangerous. There are more deaths due to cars than guns... And a car in the wrong hands can kill loooooots of people.

    But anti-gun people don't want to ban guns because they understand. They don't understand. They have fear. And fear is a marketable product.

    According to antis, guns are only meant to kill people. Every year, cars kill way more people than guns and they're designed for transportation...


    Hmmmm....

    But but but but but but the PURPOSE is different. The purpose of a car is to be all "vrooom honk honk" but the purpose of a horrible gun is to be all "BLAM BLAM BANG AAAAAHH MY BABIES AND SENIOR CITIZENS!"

    im not anti gun in anyway but there are a few flaws in your argument, it's just not as simple as that.
    there wayyyyy more cars than guns out there being operated in highly public places, so its a no brainer why there are more car deaths than gun deaths. there are just under 40,000 vehicle deaths a year in the US while there are just under 20,000 homicide deaths. (above 30,000 all deaths)
    There are around 80million guns owned in the US while there are way more than double the amount of cars.

    Like i said, not anti gun, just hate it when people compare two uncompareable things to prove a point.
    i've seen threads comparing gun deaths to medical related deaths and so on.

    I think the bottom line is that NO BAN... EVER.... has actually prevented deaths. So why have the ban? Bans have proven time and time again simply to harass law-abiding good people... So do these anti-gun people just get their kicks from harassing others??? Because they are NOT saving lives.

    I never said anything about banning guns or that i support banning guns just said that the OP had a stupid argument.

    Im saying cars are more efficient killing machines than guns. Im not talking about random crashes im saying psychos havent really thought of this.

    If someone drives a car through a group of people no 1 can stop it.

    If someone pulls out a gun they can get tackled.

    I said could a car. I didnt say Cars kill more people than guns.

    There are actually approximately 200 million guns in America. There are probably more cars but not by much....

    And I read approx. 8500 homicides by guns, not 20,000.

    If I wasn't at and posting from my phone, I could post some data/pics/etc...
