Or ANY firearms for that matter. Cars are statistically more deadly than guns.
I am not sure about this, especially when you take exposure rats into account. That would be a requirement for proper consideration of which is deadlier, statistically.
The exposure rate for guns would include anyone within range of a LEO' would it not? If so, then there were an awful lot of folks exposed to the potential impact of a firearm on my way into work this morning. Of course, everyone that I saw was exposed to the potential for death / injury by my firearm in its holster, and again by my handgun in the car console, and again by the shotgun in my trunk. That's 3 exposures multiplied by the 100 or so cars I saw just on my drive in. When you consider the number of folks with a gun in their car, and the presence of LEO's, I would guess that the average exposure rate, per person, is greater than 1.0 per day.

Still less than the exposure rate for cars, but the number of gun related deaths is a tiny fraction of the number of vehicle related deaths.

Re: Pentagon nominee says insane for civilians to own semi-auto

When I joined the Army I swore an oath to defend the Constitution. Does the Air Force release their folks from this oath when they leave service? I know that I was never released from mine.

This guy should has shown a complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution and he should be ineligible from ever holding public office, IMHO.
