Reader: Some new motorcyclists die just like new gun owners, so why not ban motorcycles?

The tragic death of Anastasia Adair, who accidentally killed herself with her new assault rifle, sparked an online conversation about whether guns promote safety or actually create more dangers. Here's a comment who thinks using such incidents as an argument for a ban is as ridiculous as... well, as this.

Why do these people try to take an isolated incident and generalize it to the entire population of gun owners? There are a lot more people killed on motorcylces that are new riders. We don't ban them. Wouldn't we be saving "just one life"? This BS is nothing but propaganda of the first degree. Socialists love their propaganda.
