74. Only guns kill people?

It never fails to amaze me, how people don't realize how easy it is for someone to go online and find recipes for bombs that could kill a lot more people than a fully automatic gun.

Look at the soldiers coming back with massive head injuries from roadside bombs.

Hell, look at how Bin Laden killed so many people, with his minions using nothing more than carton cutters to take over planes.

Bottom line: Mentally ill people who want to kill a lot of other people will do so. Guns are only ONE choice of weapon. Many others exist. You can't ban everything.

The only real solution is to get help for mentally ill people before they snap.
