You are so right sir, no where in the united states of america do citizens who own guns legally save either them self's or others from harm.
This has never ever happened and of course doesn't vastly outweigh the amount of unfortunate incidents, it's not like you can youtube "people saved by guns" and find countless reports of people saved by there privately owned guns and that's not even half of them because most incidents don't get reported EG muggings defused by the sight of the gun and the criminal runs away, the shooter in question has nothing really to report and so why waste police time with "A guy dressed in black may be mugging people at night"
So yeah if you think overall the US will be safer by banning guns (also you'd get the money and manpower to recall all these guns how?)I'd like to see some statistcal proof oh wait you have none you all just surround one incident and remove any form of responsibility and blame the gun for the actions of people which last time I checked people still do really stupid things without guns >.>
Let me give you an example of where this logic gets you
The couple in question tried to sue the company that made the blind in question because some how they should know that the cord was going to be in a toddlers room next to a step stool.
There is no way that they could have put a rope tie in so it did not hang loose, that would be stupid, clearly that company is responsible.
Guess what there will never be a world where people don't do stupid things that result in the death of others, so check and see if the amount of people saved by banning guns out ways the amount of self defense incidents, hell I doubt it out ways said incidents in which the owner doesn't even fire a shot which is very common because guess what known criminals can't get guns because background checks exist. an have for years...
