Do baseball bats kill?

We received this graph with no information.
So we’ll pretend, for the sake of argument,
that it is factual.

According to this chart, the number one weapon
used in violent crimes is not the handgun, it
is the baseball bat! So let’s take a look at
some of the things that kill us.

According to the chart, tobacco use is the
number one killer in our country.

We find it interesting that medical errors
kill over sixteen times as many of us as
firearms do.

Alcohol abuse kills over nine times as many
Americans per year than firearms.

Motor vehicle accidents kill over three
times as many of us as firearms.

In fact, of the top 10 “killers” in the US,
firearms come in tenth. And this despite the
fact that there are between 280-320 million
guns here.

So if we outlawed smoking, doctors, alcohol,
cars, and ball bats, perhaps our dreaded guns
would have a high enough percentage to make
them an issue.

Here is a suggestion, if my 100 year-old
shotgun bothers you, deal with it. Just don’t
confiscate my antique baseball bat.
Comments are always welcome.

    I have said this many times fire arms just make the news because gun play is considered sexy by journalists. There are many more efficient ways of killing people especially when considering Columbine type killings. Just ask all the victims of suicide bombers.

    scoundrel,
    It may be considered sexy but I’d bet it also sells. It just seems like a fad among the liberal elite to hate firearms.

    Do dogs bite? do guns kill? does a knife cut or commit a murder? its odd, will they ban dogs for attacking an attacked for defending their owners life? will they ban knifes for they can be used as weapons? have you even seen the carnage caused by a machete? Man cann and does use many of those things has has made or trained to commitheinouse acts but the item in and of its self is not evil it is the person who uses it that is evil. evil man and women will always find a way to carry them out, with each limit others are used.

    J.G. Lord,
    Amen to that.
