Warning: Snark moment

Some discussion on another blog prompted an investigation.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there are about 43,000 people killed in fatal car accidents each year in the United States.

The rate of fatal firearm accidents per 100,000 people is 0.27 nationwide. Motor vehicle accidents top the list at 15.3

This means that when comparing the number of firearm accidents to other accidents, 57 times more Americans die in motor vehicle accidents.

57 to 1.

You're safer operating a gun than driving a car.

Just sayin.
