    Sounds ludicrous, doesn't it.

    Well, obviously we should BAN autos, water, falling, choking, fire, and accidents. It's for the children, ya know.

    TOL and every other liberal just offer red herrings and excuses. If I don't pay attention to the road and run over a pothole that flattens my tire, they want to blame the pothole. Typical.

    Look man, you can't play the "X happened but there was a law against it so therefore that law is useless" just because something is illegal or has legal control built against and it ends up happening, it doesn't mean that the law or the control is entirely worthless.

    Point in case, states that have extremely lose gun laws, the point of which being in part to allow people to defend themselves and their property, suffer murders as well. So if you're going to blast states with strict gun control laws whenever they have a murder, because the gun laws didn't prevent that murder, why would you not also blast those states with lose gun control laws whenever they have a murder as well?

    Both types of states have taken measures to attempt to limit murder, something everyone wants, and obviously neither is 100% effective and it would be unreasonable to expect anything to be 100% effective, yet your attention is only drawn to those times when the law doesn't work in strict gun control laws however there's nothing but silence for when the law allowing lose firearm controls fails as well to prevent a murder.

    This has been refuted time and time again. The most popular firearms in the county are 22 rifles that are illegal to use for hunting all but small game because they lack the power to effectly kill larger animals. By far the highest number of rounds of any caliber sold are 22lr, and since you can't "kill" a paper target your assertion is wrong. Your ignorance of firearms disqualifies you from reasonable discussion on the matter, your bias insures that you will never understand it well enough to comment on it, therefore any posts you make on the subject are nothing but intentional trolling which is against forum rules. Reported.

    "Police believe the bullet — which struck Antiq in the left side of his skull — had been meant for his father, Anthony Hennis, who has a record of more than 20 arrests in New York and Pennsylvania.

    They include busts for narcotics, weapons possession, assault and car theft, according to the source."

    Blame Canada.

    The difference is that one approach makes a valuable, legitimate, intelligent attempt to limit senseless killing by helping the innocent to defend themselves in additional ways. One approach essentially sticks their fingers in their ears, closes their eyes, and shouts "LA LA LA LA LA LA LA".

    Realism has an amazing, long-standing track record over idealism.

    Which approach is which? You didn't really make it clear and I don't want to asssume.
