39. Re:

Yer mouth laughs pretty good, do you kickstart your brain before engaging it?

I know the statistics. But we are America. We can own guns and be smart about it. We just have to have to balls to do it and the brains to do it right. Bans mean only those intent on doing harm will own guns. Better to stop those people from getting guns in the first place. China has nuts that slaughter kids with knives. Is the answer there to ban knives? Obviously not. More people are killed in cars in this country than get killed with guns. Shouldn't we ban cars to stop it? In this country... in America, smart regulations can allow gun ownership of the responsible while denying access to guns for the irresponsible. We just have to use our brains and find the right solution... not based on knee-jerk reactionary rules that address the symptom while leaving the problem to fester.
