Isn't that what pro-abortionists say? Too many people, so we need _______ to cull the heard, right? I can think of worse ways to check out than being high...I could be high and brake into someone home thinking it's mine, get shot, fight with my "dad" for a while, which exacerbates my gunshot, resulting in my death a while later.
A few hits on the pipe or the sting of a needle would be far better, imo.
And don't forget, I do have the right to die. My body, my choice, right?

I'd like to stop and take a moment to thank everyone for NOT making this another "ban all guns" thread
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
That is not a personal attack, nor is it a subjective interpretation of an event. It is purely objective and based on the previously stated facts that the person engaging in ignorant behavior BY CHOICE has admitted.
Is there anything else you need me to explain to you?

This is the same dumb argument liberals used to try to scare us into keeping the AWB...
They claimed that "Assault Rifles" would flood the streets and cause all sorts of wonton violence and mayhem....
In reality, just as with drugs, little would ACTUALLY change. Most people are not one law away from being a junky.....

From webster's:An ad hominem argument, also known as argumentum ad hominem (Latin: "argument to the man", "argument against the man") consists of replying to an argument or factual claim by attacking or appealing to a characteristic or belief of the person making the argument or claim, rather than by addressing the substance of the argument or producing evidence against the claim.
So my question is when is an accusation about a person's character NOT an ad hom?
1ad ho·mi·nem Listen to the pronunciation of 1ad hominem
New Latin, literally, to the person
1 : appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect
2 : marked by or being an attack on an opponent's character rather than by an answer to the contentions made
