    Welcome to Physics Forums.

    That's not the way it works here. We will help you with your homework, but we will not do it for you. You must put some effort in yourself.

    Re: Why don't raindrops kill you

    It is a well-known fact that the incidence of raindrop-related homicides has been steadily decreasing since Congress passed the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act (A.K.A Assault Weapons Ban) in 1994.

    Provisions of this Act explicitly outlaw the sale of assault weapons to raindrops.

    This act was opposed by the NRA which claimed that "if assault weapons are outlawed then only raindrops will have assault weapons". Obviously that argument is absurd, as are most of the NRA's arguments.
