This wasn't refering to a person - but the gun itself.Dated article but time spanning solid good and logical opinion.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.

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:

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.
