GER: 3,657
CAN: 2,767

Should we demand government action because of the stark difference in those numbers as well? Clearly that shows that the US is simply murder on the highways and we need government regulation....

Yep this is one of my beefs with the whole anti gun crowd. While I believe every death is tragic there are things in our lives that destroy way more lives than guns do.

Alcohol destroys and kills more than guns do. Nobody is bitching about banning alcohol.
