Well, if we wanted to protect children from things that are killing them in large numbers we would ban children from riding in cars, and then ban cars because for every child who gets shot (usually by gang bangers or adults on rampages), a dozen are run over in the street. Every day about six kids die in auto accidents and about 700 are injured.
And to that argument I can only repeat: Cars are not designed to kill - they are designed to move people from one place to another. They can kill, yes, but are not specifically MADE to kill. Guns, however, have no other function in life but to kill.
