Open question to non-gun people posting in /t/guns
Despite the fact that more people are killed every year from cars than from guns, if I head over to /t/cars I can read articles reviewing the latest supercar, or read community discussion about "ugly" the new Google self driving car is. What I don't see is articles about yesterdays car fatalities, or footage of a road rage incident, or even articles about the plethora of recalls that have been plaguing the auto industry of late.
So why is /t/guns (and the general subject of guns) treated differently by some people? I keep seeing articles pop up about the Charleston shooting, and a crazy guy in Walmart, and sure... guns are in some way involved in the story, but those stories aren't about guns. They are about crazy people. If an event happened tomorrow on the order of Princess Di killed in a car crash, you would not see it posted to /t/cars. If someone choked on a chicken bone and died while eating out, you wouldn't read about it in /t/restaurants.
Maybe it's time for someone to start up /t/antigun or /t/gunpolitics to post these articles to?
EDIT: I also want to make it clear that I understand that there are people who just hate guns and everything about them and just want them to go away, and I respect that some people feel that way, and I would never want to take away their voice, or diminish that point of view. I just hope that if there are people like that here, that reading my wall of text above may cause them to think a little and perhaps realize that this tribe is for the kind of people who do like guns, and want to read reviews, and watch videos, etc.
