Number of deaths for leading causes of death
Heart disease: 599,413
Heart disease can be combated with good nutrition. Yet government subsidies keep our school cafeterias from serving healthier food.
yet look at that death count.
those people either die suddenly or have to have many medical procedures done on them before they croak.
We could cut back on healthcare with preventive measures such as good nutrition.... but nope lets go after guns since they kill more than 599,000
people a year.
Cars kill about 30k a year. Not everyone needs car and cutting back on cars would help the evironment and maybe drop the price of oil since less
people would use cars to travel. Pulblic transportation should be the way to go.
There are plenty of things that kill more people than guns but people seem to have a hard on for guns. I have never owned a gun and never had the
desire to own a gun. I just do not get the big deal about them.
Why do we fear guns more than a car or a greasy cheese burger. All three have a chance of killing you. All three have a death count. why is one
more hated than another??
When I go out everyday I have greater chance of being killed by a car than a gun. Everyday I eat I eat food that will one day end up killing me. A
gun never enters my mind.
I believe that if i ever have a gun put in my face it will be from a cop or some government official. The state has more of a record with guns than
the people. The state has been caught sending guns to criminals in mexico and other countries.
the state has no problem using guns to bend other nations to its will, and now i am being told that the state is the only one who should have guns.
if anything the people should have control over the guns as the government has a worse track record than the people. The people would handle guns
properly. Criminals and the government just misuse them.
I am sick and tired of people blaming objects instead of people. If i die in a car accident that is the risk i take for the convenience of driving
my own car. if i die of a heartattack that is a risk i take to have tasty food i like. if i die to a gun weilding criminal that is the risk I am
willing to take to ensure that I can defend myself from criminals and a tyrant government.
Life is a risk if you can't handle risk then you might as well be dead.
