Death toll in the US!! You still think its FIREARMS that need to be banned first?
I did some research, cause I was wondering what this whole US firearm hype was all about and it seems that there are LOTS of other things that need to get banned before firearms, if the lives of humans is of importance here. So here are the top causes of death in the US per year

2009 CDC data - so, only medical cases.
Source: [link to www.cdc.gov]

Heart disease: 599,413
Cancer: 567,628
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 137,353
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 128,842
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 118,021
Alzheimer's disease: 79,003
Diabetes: 68,705
Influenza and Pneumonia: 53,692
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 48,935
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 36,909


Here is a more "general" list (2002 data): Source: [link to www.theegglestongroup.com]


Cause Annually To Date

Vehicle Accidents: 42,000 41,806
Suicide: 29,350 29,214
Drug Abuse: 25,500 25,382
Firearm Homicide: 10,828 10,778

2000 data. Source: [link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

Smoking tobacco 435,000 18.1%
Being overweight and obesity 111,909 4.6%
Alcohol 85,000 3.5%
Infectious diseases 75,000 3.1%
Toxic agents... 55,000 2.3%
Medical errors 44,000 to 98,000.
Traffic collisions 43,000 1.8%
FIREARMS DEATHS 29,000 1.2%
- Suicide: 16,586
- homicide: 10,801;
- Accidents: 776;
- Legal intervention: 270;
- Unknown: 230
Sexually transmitted infections 20,000 0.8%
Drug abuse 17,000 0.7%

So asking firearms (mainly used for self-defense in the US) to be banned while half a million people a year die from smoking while another half a million die from cancer (mainly caused by eating unhealthy food) ... is in my oppinion more than ridiculous

Why do you single out a specific group?

Killing ANYBODY counts and is not tolerated.
