OUTLAW SWIMMING POOLS! Swimming pools are 52 times more likely to kill children than guns!
 

Posted on Thursday, January 10, 2013 10:40:27 AM by ComtedeMaistre

Here is some excellent analysis that shows that swimming pools kill more children than guns, despite the fact that we have more guns than swimming pools in this country:

http://www.m1-garand-rifle.com/firearms-versus-swimming-pools.php

 

When you factor in the number of pools relative to that of guns, the analysis shows that a child is 52 times more likely to die in a swimming pool than by a gun shot. We need to outlaw swimming pools, in order to save the lives of children. I am all for pool control. We must fight to ensure that the pool builders lobby does not undermine our attempt to save the lives of children.

Why is Obama not holding a press conference to denounce the lack of pool control, and introduce licensing for people who own pools? Is it because guns are more effective at stopping communism than swimming pools?

don't get why you think this argument is dumb.  i think everyone's goal should be to save as many children's lives as we can.  to do that, we should start with what kills the most children and address that problem, then spend time working on the next biggest killer, and so on.  how could you not agree with this?  is getting shot worse than drowning in a pool? 

the only reason you think that gun control is a bigger issue for our children is because thats what TV tell you to think. period.

So again - you dont care about the aggregate body count - you only care about why they died?

please understand that if I could go back in time and prevent guns from ever being invented.  i would.  in a heartbeat.  honestly they scare the shit out of me.  

i've never known a kid that got shot and died.  but i did know 1 of the 2 kids from my son's school that drowned last summer.  and their parents were just as devastated as the people that you watch on the news.  trust me.  so don't sit here and say that its not the same thing.  to them it is.  

i'll say it again.  the only reason you think gun control is a bigger issue is because the TV tells you to think that.  and you listen.  you probably think that steroids is a bigger problem for our teenagers than alcohol too.

And if there were armed guards at schools hose other kids may still be alive.

Why are you for banning one but not others?

Especially when the body count is so one sided?

Again for the slow learners, so you're not interested in preventing accidents even though kids are mucho te likely to die from that your just concerned about those deaths where the intent was murder?

Please don't use the children aspect in your arguments anymore as its clear the lives of Children is my what you're concerned with but murder.

If that's the case then you're really willing to ban guns based on a few isolated incidents?

Why don't you go answer my "Fundamental question" thread? I think this goes to the heart of the differnece

Good point!!!

Guns actually serve several important and practical uses.  Swimming pools are merely for recreation!

When will we wise up, and put an end to this holocaust of young people dying senseless deaths?

I'm outraged

I live in a state with record high CCW numbers and I've never known anyone that's been shot!  I do know of at least six people that have drowned senseless deaths in pools.

wrong again, but whats new.alot of public pools have life guards and rules saying an adult ha to be present when a kid is swimming,these rule came into play because of kids drowning,they didn't ban all pools,you see where this is going.maybe we can change a few things and not just ban all guns
