Why regulate ice cream trucks, but not guns?

While representing the Gun Responsibility Advocates to inform voters about an advisory referendum promoting safe gun storage on the November ballot during the Southeast Oak Park Community Organization (SEOPCO) Barriefest, our table our table happened to be located across the street from an ice cream truck. I was struck by the irony of the fact that ice cream trucks no longer play music in order to prevent the possibility of children being injured dashing into the street for ice cream. But guns, which are far more dangerous to children than ice cream trucks, are essentially unregulated.
