And btw, 35000?!? I guess that's acceptable?

Predictably you pull statistics randomly out of your...hat.
It's apples and oranges the way you present them. Accidental shootings (however that's defined, you don't say) are committed by individuals. The total number of guns has no relationship to that. What ever happened to 'guns don't kill, people do'? Guess it's not a convenient time for that logic.

Young Mr. Morrill, who clearly hasn't had much exposure to the real world, would do well to look at the families who've been traumatized by accidental shootings and the suicides or impulsive shootings that might have been avoided if the means weren't so readily available.
Mr. Morrill, if you're reading this, ask yourself who in their right mind would attempt to bring a loaded firearm onto an airplane these days, then look up today's news of what the TSA has reported; that in 2014 over 2000 guns were discovered in carry-on luggage, 83% loaded. It's damn scarey, scarier than anything these loons might be afraid of, that so many "right minded" individuals possess guns.
An armed society is most definitely not a polite, or safe, society. Hopefully age will teach you that.

Mr. Lorey laid his incompetency and dereliction bare in his handling of the Ed Lakata fatality. He has no business in law enforcement except to be the subject of said scrutiny. That's not grinding an axe, I didn't know Mr. Lakata, but he bizarrely made no secret of his inability to process an accident scene. What else is he incapable of?

You probably should have stopped at "Only God has the keys to answer these questions...".

Three knuckleheads mess up some vending machines at a laundromat but no mention of the Friday night armed hold-up of the Country Wine and Liquor on Mariaville Road?

Lets see, that would be the Claude Culross who is also listed as a chemist for Exxon/Mobile (conflict of interest?) and a contributor to Pat Buchanan's Buchanan Reform PAC (racist blow-hard?).
And Michael J. Myers, analytical chemist? Owns a laser company and that's his specialty. "Atmospheric spectroscopy" is sadly not one of his listed specialties on his own company's website. Those words you quote are just about anywhere right-wingers go for their little echo chambers. I'd recommend Alex Jones first, just for the entertainment if nothing else.
Homerun, albright1+. You really knocked that one out of the park. That took all of 3 minutes to find.

Yes seriously. Packing people into planes beyond reason and turning off the ventilation for 30 minutes, if that's what actually happened. That's not good customer service here on Earth. Granted we don't know how packed they were, but my second point makes that moot. We know how common it has been to leave people grounded on a plane for hours and fortunately the government stepped in and put a limit to that practice. They'd still be relying on their idiotic vouchers and coupons if something hadn't been done.
I've been on plenty of domestic and foreign plights to have a feel for how customer service works in the airline industry and they're quite capable of this and worse.

Events like this should be the canary in the coalmine for the airline industry, but it's clear they don't take it, or customer service, seriously.
