I acknowledged that to Krazysh0t already. It's a mental exercise, not a literal comparison. I added the (hyperbole) to the title for that exact reason.
Anything else you'd like to comment on?

With your argument then there should be more talk of banning cars. Cars kill as many people as guns do overall.. and it is not their primary function... If you remiove suicide, you are 3 times as likely to die from a car accident as with a firearm... And since guns are primarily used for hunting and self-defense, I woud say mass shootings are not their primary function either..
Yeah maybe if you completely ignore the part of my argument where I pointed out that comparing cars to guns doesn't work.
