23. It might be, if it wasn't, umm, prohibited.

The problem is, once you concede that whether a certain prohibition succeeds depends on the thing being prohibited, your entire argument is out the window. Because, to believe that the market for guns and the market for alcohol, on either the demand or the supply side, are even remotely similar, would require an unfathomable level of stupidity.

That's the problem with NRA talking points -- you can't think about them very hard or they vanish.
