On the other hand, many people get drunk, leap into their cars and mow down the people they have argued with, together with the friends they're with. What's the difference between shooting them and mowing them down with a car. It's all premeditated murder.
Now let's get to the premeditated murder bit. People who're of a mind to murder will do so with whatever tool they have at hand whether it's a gun, bread knife, baseball bat or a piece of string. I don't see anybody advocating banning bread knives,baseball bats, pieces of string, cars or any of the other common murder implements. It's just people that are scared of bangs that don't like guns.
