16. Few bombings have taken place because of the gun

 

If the gun had not been available, a more effective bomb would be devised.

A fairly cursory search reveals many simple bomb designs. I don't know why Columbine bombs failed- shoddy workmanship by teenage labor (the suck at making my hamburger at Wendy's); whatever. We know the bomb that McVeigh used worked pretty well don't we? We see the effect of suicide bombs in the Middle East. Bombs are not hard. Neither is poisoning people. Crazy people are crazy, they're not stupid.

There are plausible arguments... and there is cherry picking.

I'm not someone who dabbles in alternate realities... so you should realize that you are presently arguing with someone who will entertain them, but not weight them heavily.
