PeakTrader:

Americans are over three times more likely to be killed by a motor vehicle than a firearm.

****

Motor vehicle deaths in the U.S. peaked around 1970. Since then, theyíve decreased about 50%, although the population increased substantially. We made Americans more responsible and motor vehicles safer, with more protection.

Perhaps, we should do the same to reduce mass shootings. We donít need to wear body armor. However, a responsible adult with a loaded gun may help. (Will a criminal be more likely to rob a store that has a gun or doesnít have a gun?). Maybe, something like Mothers Against Mass Shootings (MAMS). Smile

****

How would more safety measures on the gun itself protect innocent lives? A responsible adult can be more responsible trained in safety, a gun in itself can be a deterrent, and using a gun can protect lives. You donít want to wear armor. Good luck protecting yourself, and others, against a criminal, who doesnít obey laws and is willing to use a gun. You donít need superior firepower to put down a criminal.
