I havenít checked the numbers lately but somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 people a year die from gun accidents in this country. Far less than from drinking the cleaner from under the sink. Why is there no nationwide demand that all cleaning supplies be locked up when not in use?
Throw in prescription medication as well, how many lives are destroyed by them after a teenager swiped them from the medicine cabinet? Or liquor, how many kids steal their folks liquor then end up dead or killing someone?
