Of course there's going to be violence with or without guns, nobody has ever claimed otherwise.

The issue has always been the amount of damage that a single gun can dish out. Acid attacks are horrific, but they're usually contained to one victim (and we know the root cause of most of these acts). Car and truck attacks are also terrible, but the net benefit of vehicles FAR outweighs the relatively limited number of attacks using them. Guns are the only item you listed that serves no other purpose than to kill things.

So long as one side is unable to even discuss the possibility that firearms play a part in the outrageous number of deaths in this country, this entire argument is pointless. This is especially true when they shut the conversation down immediately with the claim that we want to ban firearms, and then take extreme positions themselves, such as saying "we should be allowed access to the same or better weapons as our government." One last note: relating a gun to one's manhood is borderline disturbing. Just had to say that.
