    is that like, where do you bury the survivors?

    the only things that make victims safe are the police, courts, jails...

    Tell that to the folks who have been murdered by convicts who walked a technicalities (Bill Ayers) and people who were murdered by escaped convicts. Who was made safe when a Vermont judge gave a convicted rapist probation?

    Washington DC's gun banned proved that that isn't true.



    Why do people need M-16s and AK-47s??
    You do understand that criminals who own these weapons, own them ilelgally? Check out what it takes to get a class 3 firearms license, which is the only way legally own an automatic weapon.

    Sure it does. The Supreme Court recognizes this and its a reason we don't execute the mentally retarded. I don't agree is Capital Punishment at all, but if its it is going to be applied, it certainly shouldn't be applied to people with a mental capacity far below average and ability to think rationally lower than the rest of us.

    bull

    I shot a mugger with a handgun, that gun made me safer.

    police and courts act after you have been robbed, murdered or raped

    millions of crimes have been stopped before an honest person has been victimized by the use of weapons

    I would argue the opposite, a smart person might be salvaged, a murderous moron has no redeeming qualities

    Horse****! After I shot a guy who tried to rob me a few years back I had to fight gang member charges, assault charges, illegal weapon charges and it looked like at the time they wanted to investigate my citizenship status.

    The crime rate has gone for two reasons:

    1) abortion
    2) more criminals are in jail for life - which is very expensive

    No Libertarian or Conservative with their guns had any meaningful impact on crime rates.

    Sure you did.

    The anonymous internet is like a drug for you. No inhibitions, you can say whatever you want.
