    More often then not, dead people probably didn't want to die.

    If we are intent on reducing unnecessary deaths, then we should attack all things, which cause/contribute to unnecessary deaths.

    I fully support reducing starvation and hunger throughout the world.

    What is your point?

    Don't you think we should address them in priority then? I mean if you're sincere isn't 18K deaths a day far worse than the gun incidents?

    You keep saying the end result is the same. To me, the death of a child is worse than the death of an adult, in almost all cases.

    And children die as a result of misuse of alcohol.

    I didn't realize I was giving one (starvation and hunger) priority over the other (gun violence).

    That doesn't mean there shouldn't be more control.
    Explain?
    I guess were just going to have different opinions on this matter.

    Popularly used reasons for more gun control are generally, reducing violence and death associated with such.
    The same reasons could be used to advocate for more control of alcohol.

    The WHO recognizes that alcohol is directly related to violence and death.
    Depending on what you consider valid, there is more of both with alcohol.

    Well, considering this thread specifically relates to gun control and alcohol one could see where I would spend most of my comment on gun violence..
