Lies. Damn lies, and statistics. The thing about "Truth" is that it's indifferent to deception. The graphic may be true, but that's not to say it's useful for anything other than reinforcing a position which, when viewed from different perspectives, might be seen to be fundamentally flawed.
Let's assume the graphic is correct, which in the absence of source citation is an assumption that should be questioned, it's still cherry-picking its filtering. I wonder what happens if "Deaths" is changed to "Preventable Deaths", and "Murders" is changed to "Deaths attributed to gun violence".
Cars? Cars started off being totally unregulated, very rare and incredibly dangerous to, relatively speaking, highly regulated and remarkably safe given their ubiquity. The reason they aren't banned due to the number of deaths they are involved with isn't because they aren't dangerous, it's because the utility they have relative to that danger is extremely high. Further, since we recognize cars are dangerous while at the same time being too useful to get rid of, we continue to require more training in their use and more safety built into their manufacture.
Personally, it frustrates me when people rail against things that will never amount to more than a few PPM problem, which my suspicion is what gun deaths in the US is, but poor critical thinking bugs me more.

Given the Bill of Rights is about sticking up for the little guy, which is the exact opposite of Trump's world view, should make for an interesting next 4 years.

Oh my. Apple are such fuck ups for removing the headphone jack. Guess I'll never buy an Apple product again because I have to use an $8 dongle for my legacy hardware. But wait... In retrospect, the "issues" surrounding removing the 3.5mm jack turned out to be much ado about nothing? The silence of the supposed howling throngs of discontented users is deafening?
Well, I'm sure that Samsung will catch a similar degree of shit from Android fan boys.
