89. I think we should all step back for a moment and consider the absurdity of this study
they are proposing banning a legal item, sold to law abiding citizens, on the premise that some may turn around and sell it to someone else, who then sells it to someone else and so on until eventually it winds up in the hands of a criminal.

Imagine applying that logic to any other item: sorry, no pain meds for you, you might sell them and we don't want to promote illegal drug use. You can't buy a new car sir, there's a chance you'll sell it at some point and the new owner may prove to be a drunk driver, who may then kill someone.

Absurd. They only get away with this "logic" and such an obscenely butchered study because they are politically acceptable to some people.
