Argument from authority or appeal to authority is a logical fallacy, where it is argued that a statement is correct because the statement is made by a person or source that is commonly regarded as authoritative.
Never mind that when discussing the meanings of legal terms, citing those that define those terms is no more an 'appeal to authority' than citing the dictionsary for the definition of ordinary terms.
Guns do not commit random acts of violence of their own free will... THEY ARE INANIMATE OBJECTS CAPABLE OF NOTHING UNLESS BEING WIELDED BY SOMEONE.
jesus h christ... Quit trying to disassociate blame with those ****ing wankers that run around shooting homies in their hoods.. or other ****.
And again, registration has historically led to confiscation.. and has proven time and time again to be a futile attempt to "investigate crimes that were committed with firearms."
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
