that thought never crossed my mind...

what I'm saying is that a car protects you better from bullets...

we're trying to get more people on bikes, and if more everyday people are on bikes then more everyday activities like gang shootings will occur on bikes...

and until bicycles are a respected mode of transport the car crowd will use these negative incidents to keep people off of bikes...

I see this as an issue until bikes are so common that there's no need to mention them in this kind of article...
