Considering cigarettes don't give you lung cancer if you eat them, that seems reasonable.
While that's true, in that case you'd potentially be dealing with mouth cancer instead... or stomach, liver, bladder, colon or possibly even pancreatic cancer if you foolishly swallow it. Some part of you is getting poisoned no matter what.
Well of course, but that wasn't really the point. The point is that the person knowingly ingesting something poisonous is most definitely to blame for poisoning themselves. It's a pretty poor analogy for gun violence at any rate.
Oh, it's okay. I knew where you were going with that. I was just having a bit of fun with it. I completely agree that it's a very poor analogy.
