Re: A gun is involved in every single mass shooting.

"According to the CDC 500,000 to 3 million people per year are protected in the US by the defensive use of firearms."

If there weren't as many firearms around in the first place, there wouldn't be that many people in danger in the first place. What you're saying is that up to 1% of the population EVERY YEAR is at such a risk of being hurt that firearms were needed to protect them.

To me that sounds like a good argument for restricting gun availability
