Don't forget how many people drown each and every year.  

 We must ban water and all water sources that are more than 1/4" deep.

How many people died in car crashes in 2004?

How many people died from tobacco and alcohol related issues in 2004?

How many people died from weight-related issues in 2004?

If we're looking at banning stuff because people are dying, let's at least
save more lives by banning cars, tobacco, alcohol, and fat people.
