This is one of the things I keep telling people about that they don't believe: <i>Cars are more dangerous than guns.</i> The guy shot at the cyclist 3 times and didn't hit him. That's in line with the Army/FBI statistic that only 1 out of 20 bullets fired to kill someone actually hits someone. Now tack that together with the CDC report that only 1 out of 11 bullet wounds are fatal and you get a 0.45% fatality rate per bullet fired to kill someone, or one fatality in every 220 bullets fired. Cars on the other hand hit someone nearly every time it is intended to hit someone and a great number of the times they are intended to "teach a lesson" and scare someone but not actually hit them, because when someone is using a motor vehicle as a weapon they are frequently not smart enough to actually know where the edges of the vehicle are and hit them with varying degrees of severity. Add in the true accidents and the terminal fatality of a motor vehicle (against pedestrians and cyclists starting at 30 MPH motor vehicles are 50% fatal, 85% fatal at 40, 95% fatal at 50 and as close to 100% as makes no difference except to the survivors at 60 MPH and above) and you get more people killed with motor vehicles than are killed with guns every year.
