I'd rather be around a gun than someone missing too many brain cells when personal safety is concerned.

but what about a person missing too many brain cells who has a gun?

this is the whole point.

it's not so much that guns create killers, but that guns make killers much, much, much more deadly.

(though when a child mistakenly shoots himself, then it's quite clear that said gun has killed that child)

I saw some shit in The Netherlands today where a car made it easier to kill a bunch of folks, but I don't think he was a gun owner.

no, just enjoying the simplicity of your argument.

i don't really need to pile onto you like everyone else, it wouldn't really be fair.

And all gun owners. You folks are just the closed minded types. That's gotta sting considering.

I think he said earlier that he does sport shooting, that's probably what he's referring to.

riiiiight.

because all gun owners are of exactly one mind on this subject. believe it or not, my best friend is a gun fanatic. it terrifies me. we disagree on this subject, but he would never suggest that a gun is no different from a car or a butter knife.

the Canadian model has been brought up several times in here.

we're going to see the assault weapons ban resurface soon because of all of the violence in Mexico, i'm thinking.
