You're ignoring a key difference: Frequency.

Sure, with enough determination and dare I say ingenuity, one can find ways to murder a room full of people without access to firearms. But how often do such incidents happen? In the U.S., there are 32 gun deaths every day! More than 900 in the month btwn the Sandy Hook massacre and Pres. Obama's announcement yesterday. Nine f'n hundred gun deaths in one short month!

If just half of Obama's proposals had been in effect for the last three years, those statistics would have fallen by at least 25%, and probably more.

Nothing will ever end gun violence entirely. But if we can just reduce it by making it harder to accomplish, countless lives will be saved without trampling the Second Amendment.
