About 40,000 die in thier bathtubs every year. Should we get rid of those too? Does that make us a "bathtub" culture?
IIRC, of those 30,000, the majority are suicides, and a substantial part of the rest are scum killing scum with no net loss to society.
The actual number of innocent folks murdered are far, far less than many other causes, cars, bathtubs, etc.
When the numbers are actually analyzed, it becomes pretty obvious that “gun control” is about control, not about crime prevention.
