    Ban schools, and it won't happen again. I'd suggest banning knives but that would make Benihana not so much fun to go to.

    We feel the same way about Haymarket. Hopefully you'll find a rational ally on here, but I wouldn't count on it, given your posts.

    The point you are so desperate to miss is that people choose to put themselves AND their children in harm's way every day in cars, and risk death and injury at higher rates, than ever occur due to guns. Yet people would choose to *take away rights* to self defense and gun ownership in order to propagate irrational fear.

    If the fear was rational, they'd be changing their driving habits and frequency. But they kid themselves into believing cars are 'good,' necessary, even indispensable. That's not true. Cars are machines, not good or bad. Same with guns. All are subject to the people running them. And every single day I am more at risk from being killed or injured from a car...even if I'm not driving!...than I am from a gun.

    People dont care about 'deaths', they have been sold a packet of lives based on terrible and uncommon incidents. Instead of recognizing the wholesale carnage spread out across the country every week. Hyperbole? Yeah, just like the hysteria surrounding guns.

    If they cared about 'deaths,' as I wrote, they'd be changing their driving habits and frequency. But they are happy to take those risks....nothing but perceptions, not reality.

    Again....mentally ill people can be very very dangerous and kill large numbers of people.

    So....why not fix the actual problem...stopping the mentally ill from harming people? Let's see...how do you do that?

    What is the point of anyone posting here if your attitude is YOU ARE LYING IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME.

    It is your all purpose phony ace up your sleeve card that pretends to permit you to discount anything anyone actually says and merely use it as springboard #1,278 or so in going off on a rant and screaming about "gun banners" and "their real desires.

    How can any site have intelligent discussion between people with different views if you approach things from that dishonest perspective?

    So far he is the only voice of moderation I've heard amongst the zealotry. You have an almost religious belief system over there that knows no compromise and cannot be reasoned with when it comes to the total idolatry of firearms.

    The fact that cannot be denied kills and obliterates your phony false equivalency:
    Cars are made as a means of transportation.
    Firearms are made as a weapon to shooting others.

    Apparently it's ok to kill large numbers of kids on the roads every week, as long as they are spread out and not all in one place where *it seems more horrific.* Me...I think it's pretty horriifc, period.

    But yes, if you continue to concentrate kids...or any people...in areas where they are not protected or cannot protect themselves, then they are always going to be vulnerable to crazy or malicious people who wish to do harm.
