    As a Soldier I know very well how a gun in a good-guy's hand can counter a gun in a bad-guy's hand, that's our job, but how does cocain in a good-guy's hand counter cocain in a bad-guy's hand? I don't see how increasing availability of hard drugs is going to solve any problem.

    For people worried about prison population size, my answer to that is to exicute repeat offenders who can't or won't complete rehab and stay off it. We don't need that kind of person on the planet. We have enough problems with jihadfags trying to blow everything up to put so much effort into dealing with coked up loosers.

    why are you differentiating between legal weapons and illegal ones? My point as simply numbers and probabilities. And we all know that countries which are third world economies have social and political conditions that contribute to deaths.

    I have little doubt that the child who shot and killed her playmate didn't do it on purpose.

    But that doesn't change the result that we're looking at.

    Whoever owns that gun and failed to secure it needs to pay a heavy price for the death of this 5-year old which resulted from that carelessness.
    Occasionally I come across a case where a child gets a hold of his or her parents car keys and takes the car for a joyride while mom and dad are away.

    Sometimes these incidents are tragically fatal. In One which ocurred just up the street from me a child and a police officer were killed.

    Should those parents who failed to secure their spare can keys pay a heavy price? What about a parent who does not pay close enough attention when a neighbors kids tries to swim in the back yard pool and drowns?

    We could go on but these sort of accidents are more common than gun accidents and no one has the same reaction

    Any adult whose carelessness causes another human being's injury or death should pay a price for their stupidity.

    Exactly the excuse behind most frivolous law suits.

    Do you have any evidence of this?

    Maybe you think that making the person whose stupidity resulted in a 5-year old child's death pay for that stupidity is frivolous, but I don't.

    .
    Do you think that the price of coke would radically come down?

    Coke isnt that hard to get...what makes you think...after an intial upswing because 'they can'....that so many more people would do it? It's no different than anything else....just because you try it doesnt mean you'll like it. Like cigarettes....millions of people tried cigs and did not become smokers. I'm one of them.

    And also, just because you ocassionally use coke recreationally doesnt mean you'll get addicted. In some cases, it's 'just a party favor.'


    We're talking coke here, not meth. I dont think the coke problem has worsened in decades.

    Sorry cant agree with ya there.

    We mostly open carry out on the trails, riding, and sometimes while hiking. Depends on the person. Also it is more comfortable and there are some towns where no one cares and it's not that out of the ordinary. So there's no point in 'getting attention.'

    You talked to a pretty ****ty cop if he's taking aim at holstered weapons.

    How many 'bad guys' walk around oc'ing? That was just nonsense you wrote and I hope no cop actually said it.
