If Obama really cares about saving lives, shouldn't he "control" Fast Food and Tobacco Companies?
Here is the breakdown of overall deaths in the United States (by cause).
1. Heart Disease (28.5%)
2. Cancer (22.8%)
3. Strokes (6.7%)
4. Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease (5.1%)
5. Accidents (4.4%)
6. Diabetes (3.0%)

Yes, you are more likely to kill yourself than be killed by someone else.
If the goal is to save lives, why isn't Obama trying to ban french fries and cigarettes?
0.7% of deaths are homicides. 70% of those homicides are gang and drug related. Mass shootings like in Sandy Hook occur in gun-free zones.
Fast Food and Big Tobacco contribute to the deaths of over 2,200 Americans a day. If he really cares about saving many lives, he ought to stop focusing on guns.
