Gun regulation hysteria

Thanks to Rick Wells (Jan. 13 letter, “Get facts on gun safety and use”) for debunking all the hype and putting gun deaths in proper perspective. 30,323 deaths from guns are far less than die in plane crashes in the U.S. each year. I know – I Googled it. There are so few deaths from collapsing crib sides that regulation would be absurd. Would we ban lead from house paint just because 13 kids die from eating lead paint each year?
