Weapon guide presents a faulty equation

I was disappointed to see the Globe run an editorial cartoon (“A Weapon Guide for the Uninformed”) that seemed to equate the danger of guns with that of automobiles, common household objects, and human hands and feet.

While they are sometimes used as weapons, automobiles, hammers, knives, and human hands and feet have legitimate, more common uses. And drunk driving is, of course, illegal.


But guns have one purpose: to kill.
