your point is well taken,however cars and guns don't cause accidents people do. most people who are afraid of guns i find simply don't know anything about them. every body knows something about cars.. i don't think the two are a good comparison because the number of kids and the number of cars in a particular area has to be very different. example, say 2000 car deaths equal 10% of all cars which mean there are 20000 cars in the area, as opposed to 802 guns deaths which would mean ther would be only 8020 kids as opposed to 20000 cars. your never going to stop car accidents just bcause of the vast area they cover and numbers of them. but i don't think the mother of these children is asking to much by wanting peace of mine and to protect the safety of her children. i have been shooting for over forty years and enjoy it very much, but i would gladly store all my guns away to save just one of those 802 children!
