Not pro-gun per say, but I'm certainly pro-freedoms and accountability. The fact that something might hold a danger if mis-used does not typically sway me from advocating the freedom to own or use that thing. I believe that governments are far from infallible, and as such, we should always retain the right and as much ability to fight back as is reasonable, should the need arise and be generally agreed on by my peers. "Gun control" can very easily be turned into "population-control", should things get violent or oppressive.
Death by falling down the stairs is literally a leading cause of death here in the US. Banning stairways outright or limiting them to only 3 steps maximum would surely prevent thousands of deaths per year. It would be evil to not support the banning of all staircases. There is plenty of "scientific validity" in that statement.
