Ban Lawn Mowers

The Consumer Product Safety Commission data shows that when visits to doctors' offices and clinics are included, more than 17,000 children and teens are treated for lawn mower injuries each year, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Just statistically that would mean about 1700 would be considered serious. Unless a life was in danger, loss of limbs is not necessarily considered serious.

Of course, this doesn't take into account pool, bathtub, automobile or other recreational accidents to which children are subject.

This is not about banning pools, bathtubs or lawn mowers. . . it's about the phoney and disingenuous logic behind methodically and systematically banning the ownership of firearms and the push to force people to be at the mercy of their social environment.
