James Harrison says KC tragedy not a gun problem

107 posts in this topic

he could've but the woman he was trying to kill would have had a significant better chance at survival both due to the literal mechanics of death and also the amount of conviction it takes to kill someone by smashing them repeatedly with a gory rock vs retracting your index finger. That's the point. Guns may not increase violent occurances but they certainly increase the subsequent death toll.

I'm honestly not a big gun-control guy, but when you guys spin in circles trying to act like there isn't actually an issue, you end up looking pretty silly.

He could physically overpower HER and take her life and find a way to kill himself. What is silly about that?

Once again, there are more efficient weapons but that has nothing to do with a gun. Who is silly?

I'm actually with beans, to an extent...

There are a lot of issues with guns in our country, but the problem is that there is no way to correct those issues... We can only try to better control them... But when you do that, it is a slippery slope...

Yeah, but then swords are next. My contention is that you have to change the mind to fix our problems not the weapon. Next its no weapons at all. Then no Kung Fu.

And some of you think I'm a hippie or something

Assault gun ban renewal HAS been mentioned.

Number of liberals that understand the difference between cosmetic gun changes that make no difference in the world regarding function? a few

But hard for the administration to really get back on board with the renewal when they've shown a greater penchant to providing Mexican drug cartels with "assault weapons" than their own citizens.

I think it is part of the slippery slope mentality though...

We already have controls in place to curb gun violence... If you add more, where does it end...

I'm not saying we couldn't and shouldn't do more but, again, where do you define and end-point...

It is a losing battle on either side...

There's a reason the "Slippery Slope" is considered a logical fallacy.

no difference between rocks and guns? do you read what you post?

The intent of the individual is all that matters. Its not like the gun itself magically convinces you to shoot or kill someone. Any weapon - a gun, a rock, your hands, etc, are no more than an extension of yourself.

i'm not arguing intent, i'm arguing capability.
