    this a public health issue where realative risk is the factor to consider.

    If armed breaking and entering leading to fatality were sufficiently common to represent a greater risk to life and limb than the present largesse of guns AND increasing the amount of guns would reduce death by B&E more than it would increase the rate of death by gunbug moran, then there would be a very strong argument against increased controls.

    In the real world, this is not the case. It's more like vaccination. We no dot (or should not) allow invincible idiots to leave their children unvaccinated because doing so increases the level of peril for them and for everyone else.

    Scripture says "resist not evil", but evil unresisted will prevail.
