    but the gun is quite a bit more devastating than the drink.

    Put it this way: too much alcohol allows people to run into trouble.  The gun raises the likelihood that trouble will end in death.

    Any violent barfight confirms that.

    How about this:

    Alcohol facilitates, weapons punctuate.

    Again, I hold the KID more responsible than the homeowner.  BUT in terms of ensuring death, I hold the gun more accountable than the drink.

    Hope that clarifies it.
