2. I'm taking a 24 hour break from facebook

There's too much speculation going on at this point.

3. Why are your relatives hard to believe? Guns, like knives, can't kill people by themselves.

9. Without a gun can you kill so easily?

Take that gun away and what happens? Also it is the assault weapons that I should be talking about. I just thought everyone would know that.

12. Take away the person and what happens

 

its an inanimate object that just sits there. People are kind of a required part of the equation.

5. Yeah. No excuse for that. You know, that gun comes with a "Man Card." Isn't that cute?

6. But

none of the above weapons have the capability to fire without a human finger on the trigger pulling it. They are just inert lumps of metal. The terminology is correct, but the fact that a weapon was used to cause death and injury leads to questions of how, why the human chose the weapon used.

8. It's more like

 

Guns don't kill people but the psycho who EASILY purchased a gun did.

Don't know what the solution is.

Take sodium penathol and get interviewed about why you really want to buy this gun?


Chris Rock came up with as good a solution as any.

Make bullets 500$ a piece.

11. "Guns don't kill people--but they sure help"

Seen on a bumper sticker years ago. 100% correct.

14. It's a tried-and-true deflection.

Very effective over the years. The huge death toll, and the continued disabling of any effective method of reducing that death toll, is a testimonial to its effectiveness. If you find it convincing, that'a a clear indication the death toll means absolutely nothing to you. Are you proud of that?

15. I usually reply back

There is a reason why the military uses guns, they are the best tool to kill the most people. It also works if the other person goes on the "Cars kill more people every year", I just say "maybe the military should get rid of their guns and just use cars instead, what do you think of that?"
