    As I said, it's a question I've answered numerous times:

    why should I answer it again?

    Because I don't know your position and I'm asking. What is the big deal about answering questions with you anyway?

    What is wrong with you? Why do you keep posting that same link?

    Nothing. Why do you ask?

    They are not the same link. I just went back and checked them to make sure.

    Did it ever cross your mind to actually click on them?

    Both are illegal and heavily regulated. But clearly in economic terms, drugs behave differently on the black market than do guns.

    1) profitable amounts of drugs are small and easy to transport.

    2) Users use drugs and continue to use drugs on a regular basis. Guaranteeing a ready market for anything you bring in. Guns are not used as regularly, nor do they cease to be when used.

    3) the market is naturally smaller for illegal guns than drugs
    Drugs are widely available on the black market because they are illegal and therefore lucrative. The same is going to happen with guns with the more laws that are put into place. THAT is how the black market operates. What on earth makes you think it will turn out any differently with guns? People can even manufacture guns, and it's quite simple if you know what you're doing.

    Also, the more gun laws and restrictions, the more other types of weapons which are even MORE destructive are going to become popular, like bombs which are also relatively easy to put together if you know what you're doing.

    Man, you are SO incapable of seeing the bigger picture and unintended consequences. I don't think you're quite as smart as you seem to think you are.

    And BTW, you STILL haven't stated your position on how you feel about the drug war in America. You made some general comments but have not clarified your own position, which is what I specifically asked about.

    Ugh, you're actually quoting a post where I explain "What on earth makes me think it will turn out differently" ...

    Unfortunately i don't think crime statistics in Japan mirror such a phenomenon. Are you familiar with any such example that you can point to?

    Thanks, I will take that into consideration.

    Like I said earlier, Japan is not comparable to the U.S. Only an idiot would compare us with the tiny island that is Japan.

    It's completely relevant so that your hypocrisy is revealed.

    1) Do you understand how to construct an argument? FYI, it consists of more than simply making loud noises and going "Nu-uh"

    2) Second, you're argument was that legislative restrictions won't limit access to fire arms and that if such restrictions do work (though you assure us such is impossible) that people would simply turn to more deadly devices like bombs. To counter that I don't need to compare the US to japan (which is why I never actually did such), only point out that both your assertions were proven wrong with legislation introduced in Japan (<~~~~~see, no comparison)

    3) Why do you think such controls could be introduced in japan but not the US?
