    Where do you get this from? Never claimed to be the expert. I simply know the difference between a car and a firearm and know the difference between something created as a means of transportation and something meant as a weapon of death. And I know that those differences should prevent any logical person from using one to justify or excuse the other. If that is use of logic - so be it.

    So a gun is just a device for moving small pieces of lead around at high velocity nothing more

    They circle their wagons to the point of wilful insanity in order to protect their gun fetish from any rational criticism . How do people get like this ?

    Good observation.

    As to how people get like this ...... its a very willful belief system fueled by political ideology. As to how people get that - its your guess that is as good as anyones.

    I did two tours in Belfast and served in the Falklands war. At no time did I ever think that having my FN SLR rifle at home would be a good idea. Quite the contrary in fact because I have seen what they can do to people and its not neat and tidy just like on the TV either. I suspect Hollywood might have a lot to answer for with its endless glorification of the gun

    That is some history you have there. I must say that being here in the States, the vast vast majority of American gun owners are very responsible who take their weapons seriously. They observe the basic rules of safety and security and are some of the more law abiding people in our nation.

    I do not know how one stops the glorification of the gun. Its out there and I suspect it plays a role in the pushing of the gun culture in our nation and not for better.

    Do you know the difference between a dead person killed by a car and a dead person killed by a bullet?

    No, didnt think so. Dead is dead and the numbers show which are more dangerous.

    Pedestrian/vehicle accidents are on the rise here too, not just car accidents. There's at least two if not more people hit by cars in the Seattle metro area every week.

    Yes and the answer is explained right in your question.

    And no one's fighting to get cars out of American hands or further restrict their ownership and use, are they? Or trying to get them to drive less 'useful' cars? Or restrict more places where they can drive them?

    Bad analogy. It's the estate of the negligent driver, not the manufacturer of the vehicle. Negligent behavior can be and has been punishable by lawsuits.
