lol

This from the master of the disappearing act when things are going his way...


I didn't debate it with Del because there is no reason. He and I are diametrically opposed on this issue.

I think his Nth degree analogy was silly... enough said.


You didn't debate it because the logic was actually pretty sound.

I've taken an aluminum bat as well as a broomstick to the head (explains a lot) and wouldn't choose a rock over the two. A grown man bashing your head in with a brick or large stone can definately kill you. To think that it can't is foolish.

I'd like to know the percentage of guns that have been used to kill people as appossed to guns that exist that haven't been used to harm human beings.

I don't have that data but I'd guess that 80% or more haven't been fired at a person. So why do we need more regulation for things only a few people abuse? I don't see the point. Wouldn't it be more prudent to cure the problem instead of treating a symptom?

Your talking about changing laws for a very small percentage of offenders. I don't own a fire arm by choice but I'm not going to force that choice on others who are mostly responsible people.


Atomic fission is used throughout the world to power millions of homes, schools, and places of worship. Only two atomic weapons have EVER been used in attacks against people.

Why regulate?!!!

Have you taken a gunshot to the head?

If not, he's probably not encountered a mentally ill person with a gun. I'd bet he's been around a lot of guns too, given his views on the issue.

I believe in a persons right to have anything they want. I can own a car and not hit people with it so...

I've seen before my eyes what people do with guns and I have no love for them at all. I've chosen to have nothing to do with them especially having a young one in treasure hunt mode in the house at this time. If somebody wants to get you tactically they will. There is no protection. There is only intent unless you are super rich and can afford proper countermeasures.

I love the atomic bomb argument. You prove the rightwing point for them.

Back when only one country had it, it was used against a mostly civilian population.

Then other countries developed them. It hasn't been used against any population since.
