My brother and I were talking about guns the other day, and the dangers of having guns around. I brought up the point that butter knives are also lethal and every household has about a dozen or so. I posited that more people die from butter knife related injuries than gun related injuries on the basis that everyone has multiple butter knives, but only a small percent of people own a gun, let alone multiple guns to necessitate a gun rack. He did not want to discuss it any further.
What do you think? More gun deaths or more butter knife deaths, and why?
