“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society,” Reprise 0

Ned Barnett runs the numbers. A snippet:

Second Amendment zealots say that people, not guns, kill people. But when a nation has more guns than people ­— 393 million guns and 326 million people — the prevalence of guns is going to lead to the demise of people through intentional shootings, accidents or suicides. The toll is more than 110 people every day.

Yet another child is sacrificed on the NRA’s idol of lead.

One more time, “accident” and “negligence” are not synonyms.

Afterthought:

Some years ago, when I lived in Delaware, I took a defensive driving course so as to reduce my car insurance rates. (No, I didn’t have any tickets or anything like that. It was all about the Benjamims. The one ticket I ever got came later, and I richly deserved it, as I forgot to come off cruise control in time, but that’s another story.)

The Delaware state trooper who taught the course mentioned that, in the course, they no longer referred to “accidents”; rather, they referred to “collisions,” because, in almost all cases, if a driver had done something–even one thing–different, the accident collision would not have happened. (As an aside, the traffic reporters on my local NPR station do not talk of “accidents”; they talk of “crashes,” I suspect for a similar reason.)

It is well beyond time that police spokespersons and news outlets reporting on gun nut negligence should have adopted the same practice.

Ed Finton, who has lived in the neighborhood for 40 years, saw the ordeal unfold.

“I woke up to gunfire,’’ Finton said. “My dog was going nuts.”

“I could see a guy standing in the middle of 80th Street with a long gun just shooting randomly,” he said. “When I saw that I called 911. The only thing I knew was the SUV had crashed into the pole.”

Just another day in the NRA’s Garden of Bleedin’.

Once again, politeness becomes child’s play.

Think for a moment: what is the common denominator in gun deaths?

No, it’s not “death”; that’s the quotient.

Yet another “responsible gun owner” demonstrated that said phrase is an oxymoron.

Musical NotesGuns and stupid, guns and stupid.
They go together like love and Cupid.
Let me tell you brother,
You can’t have one without the other.
