Considering guns have been around longer the vehicles and it was not until the invension of the automobile that economies of countries whos populous owned them exploaded. While the ownership of firearms has not had anything like that effect.
    Getting rid of personal vehicles is not remotely the same as eliminating modern transportation from a society. People do not need 'personal' cars for society to succeed. Not only that, now the road and highway networks are built. They will last alot longer with the lessened traffic of public transporation on them.

    Get over that, it is so lame.

Sorry, y'all that want to open carry in populated areas, are doing only to garner attention and be arrogant fools, and neither of those types should even own guns.

    You're indignation about potentially being included in that is no concern of mine.

    There's really no arguing with this (esp. having been LE myself)

    What would be revealing is the house the gun was kept in. Is a trash heap with other weapons laying around or did someone have a brain fart and leave their pistol on the night stand.
    Until there is a "real" punishment. Keep looking for this type of thing to happen. I don't care how "bad he feels". He needs to go to jail.

    I dont care if it does. Let the idiots die or snort. That is their problem. And that was not part of my original post here either. You are taking it off topic.

    He's on record for wanting gun ownership completely illegal. You aren't dealing with a reasonable point of view

    So apparently it's not the cars themselves or the laws. Because personal irresponsiblity causes most accidents.
    The regulations are there for consumer protection purposes. The tight restrictions on the manufacture of vehicles has forced manufactures to put safety features that they otherwise would care less to install. It also holds them responsible for faulty design that can make a vehicle unsafe. It is true, that any vehicle is a potential death trap, but the government restrictions on vehicles greatly reduce the impact an accident has on its operators.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
