    The book does not take action. That is what I want you to demonstrate. You're trying to make a claim that the book infringes upon the rights of others. I asked you to demonstrate that. How does the book infringe upon the rights of others. Owning a gun can inspire action as well as belief that the action is ok. Like vigilante justice and such. But does that mean we ban guns? Or do we go after the PERSON who actually does the ACTION?

    I'm saying this book can inspire an absolutely unjustifiable action. There are valid, legal ways to own and use a gun. The same cannot be said of promoting molesting kids.

    What I think irks Kev is that we repeatedly say that we don't agree with what this guy did but defend his right to do it. Kev can't come up with anything but insults to counter the argument, not facts, not links, nothing. Just pure emotion. And the law is not written on emotion so his argument doesn't hold water.

    I feel for him, god knows what he went through as a kid. I'm sure it was awful. But unfortunately his bad experiences don't take away from the fact that this country is built on laws that I would like to uphold.

    First of all, I want to thank you for your very calm and respectful demenor. It's a nice change of scenery.

    That being said, "inspire an absolutely unjustifiable action" is legal. I can inspire someone to do anything, it's not illegal to do so. What about the books written about how to kill and such? How to make bombs? ETC? All of those are unjustifieable actions, so where is your outrage against those?

    Neither do I man, trust me, I'm all for putting them away. But last time I checked, that's not what we're defending. We're defending someone's right to write a book.

    Well, you're right. As stated before, we're not defending the contents, simply his right under the 1st amendment to write this trash.
