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.

Every country should have a nuke.

Atomic bombs don't kill people. People do.

Dumbest.

Analogy.

Ever.

Every woman has the capability to be a prostitute. Doesn't mean every one of them becomes one.

I say we ban all guns and replace them with rocket launchers.

Then youre making an irrelevant and/or pointless argument...no offense of course. There are a ton of things out there that have the capability to kill...most of which arent even designed to do that. So are we talking about accidents now? If so, then we should hold tall roof-tops, cars, falling pianos, etc, just as accountable. A gun will not kill unless someone is operating it with the intent to kill. With that being said...you can't ignore intention, because intention is everything.
