Uilleand Hesitatingly, GUNS again (97* d) RE: Hesitatingly, GUNS again 21 May 99


I hear all about the casualties when laws are ignored. What about the statistics of lives saved, because of these laws? How many people think twice about getting into a car after having indulged in an alcohol beverage? How many fines and jail sentences for DUIs and DWIs have prevented accidents? How many arguments did not result in injury or fatality because there is gun control? Those are the statistics that really matter. And would anyone truly be surprised to find out that they outnumber by far the instances where someone successfully fended off an attacker with a gun. The tragedy is that these statistics are much harder to obtain or most likely we wouldn't be having these kinds of arguments in the first place.
