    Oh? Where? (Genuinely curious).

    My guess is that it would be knives used as weapons such as swords and military-use knives. Ordinary knives such as cutter knives and kitchen knives that have everyday uses won't be.

    So you're concluding that it's a lack of positive reinforcement by liberals that's the problem and not the lack of wealth, the insanely higher incarceration rates, the lower quality education access, etc?

    Wow, what a glaring and shallow, false dichotomy.

    That is the mechanism of guns although you are correct. So do tell, what does one usually hope to accomplish through firing such a projectile? What is the most common use of a projectile or a gun for that matter? Cars probably kill more people than civilian usage of guns, sure, but the purposes of each and the impact of banning them are intrinsically different that drawing an analogy between them is ridiculous.

    I'll repost the chart I posted earlier for you, since you clearly missed it, forgot about it, or misunderstood it:



    That's the difference between wealth in white households and black households. That data includes all those successful black folks, and all those successful white folks.

    I disagree it's a false dichotomy. There's nothing else besides nature and nurture to draw from. Nothing.

    Nowhere.

    None.

    Zippo.

    Nada.




    Zilch.

    Feel free to provide alternatives to nature and nurture, or to continue providing fun synonyms for "none" with me.

    Ok, now show us the specific law(s) that creates that inequality.
