    There are plenty of murders and violence that occurs without guns, yet they use them to symbolize murders. Discuss

    Guns give a more dramatic affect in a picture than a knife or baseball bat. Guns are built for 1 thing. To kill. Hard to cut a steak or hit a hardball with a gun.

    Like tattoo said, the guns make for more drama. These news organizations make their money by selling advertising. More drama leads to more "click throughs" which leads to more advertising dollars. Same as tv with ratings. Even if a bunch of angry gun rights activists go to that site to check out that post, it's just making CNN $$.

    well lets see what the numbers are of people dying each year by cars vs firearms, i'm sure we all know the answer to that one. So where is the talk of outlawing cars, well of course we cant do that , bailouts,oil,insurance, parts made in other countries thanks to nafta, and so many other such scams lies and deceptions. Ok CNN wheres your reply to this ?

    Ding Ding! Let's outlaw guns because they do make it easier to kill human life. But let's outlaw human life killers in order from highest killers to lowest killers starting with abortion, cars, alcohol and tobacco, what's the next one? maybe guns?

    weather you like it or not
    guns are tools used to kill

    if it said inside the mind of a mechanic
    would you be mad about the socket wrench
