Cars 80% More Perilous Than Guns?

In the wake of the California Assembly passing SB 707, which bans concealed carrying on school campuses, although a crime has never been committed on a California school campus by a ccw holder, the following report spikes our interest.

Bob Owens of Bearing Arms reports that Duke Researcher Christopher J. Conover has determined cars are 80% riskier than guns.  Conover concludes “…in light of these eye-opening but indisputable facts, why is gun ownership so vilified by progressives? They could save literally 25 times as many lives by convincing a single typical car owner to drive more responsibly than convincing a single typical gun owner to use their weapon more responsibly. Instead of derisively sneering at those who “cling to guns” out of bitterness, perhaps they ought to ask themselves why guns rather than cars invite their scorn.”
