    Just like before we had cel phones--the halcyon crimeless days of yore.
    I may be wrong.

    I think it is valid to question if more people die as a result of using a cell phone while driving or if more people die as a result of handguns. Enquiring minds want to know.

    Funny after the incident, the revolver/cell phone ratio went up. Ironic that this and the thread it was responding to was posted before this school shooting?

    Oh, wait the school shooting isn't the first mass shooting. Just the most disturbing.

    Not to mention people murdered with guns.

    Neither option. Humans have caused more violent crimes that anything else.

    Re: What do you think has caused more violent crimes

    Cars are the largest producer of death and crime in this country and should be outlawed immediately. Not only do they kill people willie nilly but the road rage crime they cause is staggering and we can't accept this any longer.

    "In 1988, there were 3 media stories yearly on ‘road rage’, till 1994. By 1995-500 stories. 1996-1600 stories and in 1997, over 4000."

    "Add to what was previously mentioned, that over 50% of the drivers are over-stressed and doing other things than driving, from cell-phone use and texting, to running red lights and substance abuse, or falling asleep at the wheel, the carnage is really devestating."

    "One stat. thrown out was that in 1990, the overall cost was $138billions, with 45,000 lives lost, 5.4 million non-fatal injuries-28 million vehicles damaged".

    "In other words at these rates, in the last 18 years, we have 810,000 deaths, 97.2million non-fatal injuries, 504million damaged vehicles and costs of $2,484 billions, not to mention the pollution and angst."

    By that logic, we should be letting every boy and girl get a WMD for Christmas.

    Guns don't cause violent crime, they aid in it.
