    Why is it libs can look at a set of statistical data, and pour what ever meaning they wish into them, without a shred of substantiating evidence? Just because the numbers are not equal, doesn't necessarily indicate, "systemic abuse".

    Of course it can be used for many other purposes such as scaring away wild animals, warning someone else, intimidation, and so on but the main purpose is to kill. Even then it's undeniable that your analogy doesn't work. For it to work you must prove (just off the top of my head):
    1) The purposes of cars and guns are the same
    2) The impact of banning guns and cars are the same

    Since it is impossible to prove even one of the above, your analogy fails. Nice deflection though, cherry-picking only one part of my post and pretending that it's the only point in the post.

    You didn't address the fact that the system may be the problem, you simply dismissed it.

    People are the products of their environment. Demanding equality from people treated unequally is not a solution, it's simply continuing the same problem.

Civilian ownership of guns therefore cannot be possibly used as an analogy to cars. The analogy is simply ridiculous and it's very tiring hearing that crap over and over again. I'm somewhat divided and mostly indifferent about gun ownership but your analogy is just absurd.

    Edit: BTW the OP isn't even about gun control. How thoughtful to bring up a totally irrelevant topic.
    The analogy is valid, what is absurd is your mischaracterization of why guns "exist".

    Then do tell, what is the main purpose of guns?

    It's the only way they can make an argument. They have to avoid the facts as much as possible.

    You can either blame genetics or environment. Environment is a product of our system, that's the one that seems obvious to me. If we can accept that it's not genetic, then we're both on the same page of looking for systemic reforms to improve the opportunity of all citizens to live peaceful, productive lives.

    Modern society couldn't exist without knive, either, but there are places where knives are heavily regulated.

    The fact is, black people have no fewer rights and no less access to The American Dream than anyome else. There are literally millions of black Americans who have a good job--not minimum wage--and have never been to jail, to claim that black folks can't succeed in America.

    You can also blame propaganda. Example: we never hear Libbos say that black folks can succeed if they try hard enough.
