Why not just get rid of all laws? Man, you're brilliant...

You're right seat belts just get in the way, lets get rid of them. Who cares what side of the road, if you want to drive in the middle you should just in the middle, do what you man. Anarchy in the USA

We need those laws so they can make money. Here it's illegal to drive without a seatbelt but you can ride a motorcycle without a helmet. Brilliant. You love big Government aye? Tell me what to do, I'm so helpless.

You don't think deterring someone from driving 70 in front of a school saves lives?

I had a neighbor killed when I was growing up. A very nice middle class suburban neighborhood. The husband and wife got in an argument, he stormed out of the house bought a gun came back and killed her in her sleep. I always wonder if he had to weight a few days if that nice old woman would still be around...

So because your state leaves a legislative gap for motorcycle helmets, that relates to gun control, how?

He didn't and maybe...

Psychologically speaking it's much harder to kill with a knife.

But I can discuss, and point out flaws in arguments, as well as support and empathize with US citizens who do want change.

Big deal.
I think that comment pretty much sums up your attitude right there.

If you're going to have guns you'll have gun deaths. If you're going to have cars you'll have car deaths. But not from either of mine.

One of these is a common necessity, the other is not.

Yes


The one that was invented first?


It's good to have fear, and anger.

That's sad you feel that way.

No.

Both are damaging to one's health.
