The question is simple: Which kills more people, vehicles of firearms?
I went back to 2010 so that we are out of the hysteria of 2013 about firearms and here is the sad truth. The U.S. Department of Transportation reports, "In 2010, 32,885 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in the United States--the lowest number of fatalities since 1949."
The CDC reports for the same year that 31,513 people in the U.S. died from guns, up from 31,347 the year before--or, vehicles caused 4.1 percent more deaths than firearms.
I guess it is time for the U.S. to consider banning vehicles and go back to the horse and buggy. Or we could realize there is no simple way to deal with either vehicle deaths or death by firearm.
Whether you like it or not, the Second Amendment prevails. So it is time for Congress to get to work and get this great nation back on track.
