    Perhaps. But less dangerous overall.

    Hardly. The right to dictate others' lives is the most dangerous power available.

    Clever tactic indeed. Perhaps you can tell us just why the "consequences of that issue" and "the inherent dangers involved" seemed to arrive spontaneously, and immediately after the 2012 election, yet did not seem to exist at all during the campaign leading up to that election. Feinstein just happened to have an AWB/MCL written and ready to roll out even before the "Biden team" even called for it. To me this seems just a bit more of a political timing of a preplanned event (poitical agenda?) rather than some "crisis" or "emergency" situation having suddenly occured to trigger it. As recent news reports suggest the real nature (truth?) of the infamous CT shooting, initially hyped as "proof" that an AWB ban was "the answer", now indicate that handguns, not even mentioned in most of the 23 EO nonsense, were the weapons of mass murder in that "key" incident.

    Yeah man...you bet. Like...no guns, and they still manage to successfully complete the act of suicide at a rate 5 times greater than in the US. Which makes your suicide/gun comment rather...silly.

    Oh, there's not a lot of dictating going on. Never heard tell of anyone dying after a drive by voting.

    There's a lot more people today, and population centers are large. An idiot can do a lot of damage. And they do. A young man plays around at a party and accidentally shoots a girl across the room in the neck killing her. A kid plays with dad's pistol and shots a brother, sister, random neighbor kid. On a hunting trip, someone accidentally shots someone in the face. This stuff happens regular enough.

    Facts:

    WASHINGTON — Between 2006 and 2010, 561 children age 12 and under were killed by firearms, according to the FBI’s most recent Uniform Crime Reports.

    The numbers each year have been consistent: 120, 115, 116, 114, and 96 in 2010. The FBI’s count does not include gun-related child deaths that authorities have ruled accidental.

    ‘‘This happens on way too regular a basis and it affects families and communities — not at once, so we don’t see it and we don’t understand it as part of our national experience,’’ said Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research.

    For every time a gun in the home was used in a self-defense or legally justifiable shooting, there were four unintentional shootings, seven criminal assaults or homicides, and 11 attempted or completed suicides.

    Injuries and deaths due to firearms in the home. [J Trauma. 1998] - PubMed - NCBI

    The 3,385 firearms-related deaths for age group 0-19 years breaks down to:Four teen boys

    214 unintentional
    1,078 suicides
    1,990 homicides
    83 for which the intent could not be determined
    20 due to legal intervention

    Of the total firearms-related deaths:

    73 were of children under five years old
    416 were children 5-14 years old
    2,896 were 15-19 years old

    Don't get carried away, you have not disproven that guns are more often used by US soldiers for suicide.

    There have been quite a few voted after dying though
    Poor decisions over generations, may kill all of us, or at least our way of life.
