    A) Your weapon can only be aimed in one direction at a time, and it doesn't make you bulletproof. That's poor planning, considering the variables it doesn't actually address.

    B) killing someone isn't legal 99.999999% of the time. I believe it should simply be rounded up to 100% to remain consistent.

    A) what the hell are you talking about, this is about a man that tried to use his car to kill police. They responded and killed him...

    B) rounding can cost your own life....If it is me or the dirtbag, the dirtbag looses. Period.

    A) Responding to a hypothetical provided by another poster.

    B) Justice shouldn't be determined by the survivors.

    A) stick to the thread topic...That makes your answers more clear...

    B) Justice is not for you to determine either.

    A) I wasn't replying to you, I was replying to another poster which is probably why you're confused.

    B) Justice is determined in combination by the authorities that designed our nation in combination with a collective acceptance. It's not decided by a single person with a deadly weapon.

    A) I'll respond to whom I want when I want in an open thread thank you...My confusion stems from you trying to be too clever by half with your answers and circular logic.

    B) It's not decided by you that's what I know...You have a pretty warped sense of this nation, and its laws...Are you from America?

    A) Didn't say you couldn't reply, just that you'll be less confused if you read the context of the post I'm replying to.

    B) I'm a fully American product.

    A) Good, but I am not confused at all, that is just you trying to circle talk.

    B) Then our education system failed.

    A) You sounded confused. I try and be a good citizen and solve problems when possible.

    B) I minored in polisci at a highly rated university, you'd think I'd be one of the few here that our education system hasn't failed. Sad.

    Building codes are based on quantifiable things.

    Same with medical research.

    Human interaction is not even CLOSE to being understood to the same degree.


    Edit: Further, there's the question of whether we should try to codify and control it if we could. Freedom of thought and expression? Dangerous ground there.
