    Nope. Never saw it. But two things come to mind.

    1. Never said police shouldn't be armed.

    2. Not sure a gun would stop a car.

    Since ideologies tend to trickle from the UK to America, if you're wise enough to notice, one would reasonable think pepper spray may next be targeted after guns have been banned.

    As to your last sentence, don't you dare presume to speak for everyone. Ever. Don't even try to tell people they must consider other ways to protect themselves. Apparently you don't even think about the frail or elderly.
    Don't care about the UK at all. That is their business. Slippery slope arguments are often called a fallacy for a reason. Guns are not going to be banned here.

    As to your last sentence, not sure the frail or the elderly are any better off armed. It does take some mental and physical ability to properly control and use a gun. It is a tool after all.

    However, you may well reread what I wrote. You didn't seem to understand it.

    So the police can wield guns, but not law-abiding citizens?

    A gun might stop the driver, ergo, the car.

    Just like you rev, bring up useless stats that don't speak to what I said at all. You have to show more people protect themselves with guns than shoot themselves accidently. No other grouping matters to my point.

    Didn't say that either. And no, a gun might kill the driver, who leans on the pedal, and continues to go through the crowd.

    But please try to grasp exactly what I am saying. I have made no call to ban any guns. Only noted an overexaggeration.

    It has to address the claim made. That should not upset anyone.

    Why? Nothing really different in dying from an AK or dying from a .22, the end result is still dead.

    If the Rev. feels like he is more comfortable with an AK to defend his property then so be it. It is a legal weapon.

    do tell more

    about YOURSELF

    LOL!

    If you can't protect yourself without a gun, you can't do it with one.
    really?

    what else did the fortune cookie say?

    gotta LINK to it?

    Guns are not magic. They're just a tool.
    a tool for what, grasshopper?
