There is possibility society's fear of firearms is a figment of our overactive imaginations; a product of national obsession fueled by negative propaganda set in motion by the media. Guns on their own don't hurt anyone.
More people die in Canada in car accidents [Canadian Mortality Data Base in co-operation with Stats Canada] with a statistic of 9 per 100,000 population. In 2002, 5 deaths per 1,000,000 occurred as result of firearm user accidents or crimes.
