    How would he have killed your friend without a gun?

    Just curious.

    That's like blaming the crack pipe instead of the crack.

    The question is, how many lives and at what cost? Far more people die in automobile accidents than by guns... yet no one is advocating banning cars, restricting everyone to cars that only go 35mph, background checks to buy a car, etc.

    Hell if we just did away with 18 wheel trucks and cars on the same roads we'd probably cut traffic fatalities by thousands... but the economic cost would be staggering.

    Saving lives is great, but there are always limits to how far we can practically go in so doing.

    There are also unintended consequences... like making criminals safer and therefore bolder.
    I can't understand why pro gunners don't know the difference between a car and a gun.

    Here's a hint. Cars don't have triggers.Cars have brakes.

    Is there any proof of your assertion?

    More like blaming the crack instead of the person smoking it.

    But to answer your first question, by hitting him in the head with a rock, choking him, poisoning him with the chemicals under the home sink. Driving over him with a car, putting a bomb on the plane he was in, any number of other options, all of which have been used.

    And thinking that banning law abiding persons from owning certain types of weapons will prevent mass slaughters is obviously wrong. The biggest mass murder in US history excluding 9-11 was carried out using a fertilizer bomb. The biggest school massacre was carried out using a bomb as well, in 1927. Bombs and bomb-making materials are already restricted btw.
    Most of the mass shooters were "law abiding" citizens before they went on their killing rampages.

    You assume incorrectly.
