If you have a gun, and use it CORRECTLY, someone gets hurt or killed. If a bat is used correctly, the only injury is the other team's pride (or the occasional pop fly to the face). A baseball bat is a tool for a sport. A gun wasn't intended to be, and is not. It is a weapon. and if used correctly, it's extremely dangerous

Yes, because the only correct use for a gun is to kill other people.
There's no such thing as sport shooting, or hunting.

Firstly, I really doubt the accuracy of this chart. But let's assume it IS accurate.
Imagine there is a rampant killer armed with an AK-47. I think he'll do a lot more damage than if he was equipped with a bat. SO yeah, there are probably a lot more cases of people getting killed because of baseball bats, but a single case of an armed (with an automatic rifle) killer can be a lot more harmful.
Also, I bet it's a lot easier tog et a baseball bat than a gun. But then again, I don't live in the U.S.A., so Iwouldn't know.

Because more people have access to baseball bats. But in a shootout with a gun, more people are going to get hurt by the gun than anyone would from one guy with a baseball bat.

You might as well say more people statistically get stung by bees than killed by tanks. Should we use bees in war? Probly not.

Probably has something to do with the lack of people beating children to death with baseball bats... just sayin...

I'm not going to walk into a movie theater and kill 15 people with a baseball bat.

Someone comes after me with a bat I'm better suited to survive the encounter than a guy with a firearm.

Swing, they're down. Then another to the head while they're down. Not too easy to survive getting your head crushed in. Baseball bats give the perfect amount of leverage to knock the **** out of things. You don't exactly have to be the strongest man alive to swing a bat. Just don't have the upper body strength of an anemic premature baby (which I can only assume you do), and you can kill someone pretty damn easy with a bat

'Mass Killing'

The word mass implies a group of people. Is everyone standing around watching while you take down unmoving, reactionless, mannequins?

It's not even worth debating.

So everyone in a mass shooting is just sitting there, not moving and not trying to fight back? **** you're stupid. It's a lot harder to hit a moving target with a gun than a baseball bat

No, they're busy getting shot you penis.

Most people's first thought when someone starts shooting is to get the **** out of there. Not so much when someone's swinging a stick around.

I think I'd still think "That guy is beating people with a bat, maybe I'd better leave". but thats just me. also, just a little fact for everyone, the worst school massacre of all time, was commited with no guns.

I suppose so but with a gun its over so quickly and its pretty much a guarantee if you shoot someone they're going to die unless you're not a good shot but people may be less inclined to kill someone if it takes longer in public like beating someone to death with a bat. it'd be hard to kill more than a couple of people with a bat whereas i'm reading about mass shootings every other month here in Britain and i couldn't tell you the last time we had a mass shooting.
Dont get me wrong I don't think taking guns away now would help in anyway it's too late if you tighten the gun laws its only going to make things worse as people will seek ways to get guns and exploit it.

Do you have to have any kind of training or take lessons to own a gun?

Ya there are classes for concealed carry but I think they should be more extensive. Gun ownership takes a background check that will soon become more stringent in nature. If America could evolve its gun culture to one more like Switzerland the nation would be a safer place to live.

Honestly, most criminals get the guns illegally... I don't understand why innocent, law abiding citizens will not be allowed to buy a gun that they have no intention of using to kill another person... Im all for more background checks, but outright banning something wont solve the problem... Look at illegal drugs, they still make it into the country.... Just saying.

Actually, most gun homicides are commited with a firearm that was bought legally, though the criminal may have stolen it, hence making it "illegally *obtained*". But it was still a legal weapon. However, I do agree that we shouldn't completely ban them. But background checks are good. Even the 2nd amendment says "well regulated", right?

Actually, the first part of the second amendment has nothing to do with the rights of gun ownership. It's a justification clause (or something like that, I had this explained to me once and I can't remember it for the life of me), which is a reason for the proceeding clause. It's basically saying that we need guns to be able to have a well regulated militia, not we have guns because of we are the militia

I meant to say legally obtained, thanks for pointing that out. But anyways, If we had these background checks, and the guns came with a lock box, I think it would be a much better system than outright banning them

Baseball bats serve a purpose other than to hurt people with. Firearms only purpose are to injure/kill other

I'm not for more gun control, just pointing out faulty logic

around more than 11 thousand deaths should be reason enough to ban firearms dont you think? stop pointing fingers.
