    are in the Constitution and others are not. Those don't lessen the logic of your suggestions in any way.

    The gun rights absolutists will say that there are about as many deaths from firearms as there are from motor vehicle accidents and that there are about as many firearms as there are cars, therefore guns are just as safe as cars.  When we point out that a great majority of Americans benefit from driving or riding a car whereas a minority owns all the guns and benefits from these, they proceed to insist that the only gun deaths that can be counted are homicides (a if suicide or accidental deaths didn't matter at all).

    Until we get the majority to insist on sensible regulation of deadly products and our Government (especially at the state level) is no longer owned/afraid of the NRA nothing will be done.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
