is either regulated, subject to child safety improvements or made illegal outright.
Every product except for guns.
Rollerblades, skateboards and bicycles are banned in most public areas but guns are legal in these same areas?
The biggest and most glaringly obvious inconsistancy in product legality I see is when it comes to guns and fireworks.
To my mind, fireworks are the most similar product to guns that I can think of but fireworks are more regulated than guns are.
In 2011 there were 4 deaths nationwide connected to fireworks, all accidental.
In 2011 there were at least 600 accidental deaths connected to guns.
These are accidental deaths by firearms. Any other product with those statistics would have been made illegal by now.
Why is it that guns whose sole purpose is to injure or kill remains legal while toys that may have the minutest capability of causing harm are made illegal?
The least Americans can do for the safety of their family and communities is to regulate the deadliest products in America.
