    It's certainly not my argument for owning guns as a deterrent. Mine is if some one wants to attempt use of gun on me I want the right to also have a gun, or knife. Basically the means to self protect as I see fit.

    Making sense is only going to cause our enlightened progressives(leftists) to demand government subsidies for pot.

    Take away one weapon and criminals will use another. Stop focusing on the tool.

    I think the argument that gun control is a worthless idea because violence still happens without guns is as weak or weaker than the argument that gun control would have any immediate effect on violence and crime which is itself quite weak.

    What's Chinas intentional homicide rate?

    I seriously doubt that the 27 dead people will be recovering anytime soon.

    China sounds like another dangerous place.

    I wonder where all of the police were when this massacre was going on. Do Chinese cops eat donuts?

    Maybe we need to do something about the crazy people.

    Any ideas on that?

    The crazy people there don't have guns, so they use what they have.

    Maybe someone should open up a chain of gun stores there.
