Once again, the obvious answer is no, not all guns are capable of creating the same amount of death. Some can create more than others, and therefore are more deserving to be either banned or restricted.
Who gets to be the judge of which guns are more dangerous than others? Politicians?
Which is more dangerous (without using Google)? My Ruger MKII semi-auto, 10 round, scary black pistol or my Smith & Wesson, 5-round, X frame revolver?
I know which one a know-it-all politician thinks should be banned and I know which one I leave at home when heading to the mountains.
