    When is a people killer not deadly?"

    This is a dated article, but still a good read. and puts some things in perspective.

    Read it here
    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    This wasn't refering to a person - but the gun itself.
    Now to answer Mr. Diaz's question, "When is a people killer not deadly"? It's not deadly when a responsible, law-abiding adult who is trained in its operation possesses it. In such circumstances it is an extremely effective deterrent to violence.

    When is it most deadly? As history has repeatedly shown, when it is taken from the hands of the citizenry, leaving them at the mercy of criminals and totalitarian governments.
    Dated article but time spanning solid good and logical opinion.

    Can't Argue With The Stats...

    In 1988, for example, a grand total of 5 children under five years old died in handgun accidents in the entire United States. 9 died while driving (yes, driving!) a motor vehicle. 21 died due to electrocution. 59 died from ingestion of poison. 117 died due to falls. 250 died from suffocation. 381 died in swimming pool drownings, another 375 drowned in bathtubs. 432 died in residential fires caused by adults who fell asleep while smoking. 459 died due to being hit by cars. 720 died from being in cars involved in accidents.

    Now we may be facing tests and fees to use:
    electricity
    swimming pools
    fire
    bathtubs

    Here's another related stat.

    The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received reports of over 275 young children who have drowned in buckets since 1984. Over 30 other children have been hospitalized. Almost all of the containers were 5-gallon buckets containing liquids. Most were used for mopping floors or other household chores. Many were less than half full.

    We had better ban buckets too I guess.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
