    I submit, sir, gun control, regardless of future technology, would be futile to even attempt.

    I have been following that technology. That is to say, I've seen a few things on television lately with "do it your self" gun building software, etc..

    Keep telling yourself that. You'll see Civil War before you ever see an America without guns.

    Now try addressing what I actually said:

    "Banning guns in this country will only come about if more reasonable measures are not enacted to reduce the number of massacres in this country."

    Responsible gun owners can either help implement measures that will help reduce massacres of innocent people or face broader gun control as our society evolves.

    How many gunshot deaths occur each year in the US

    The majority of gun deaths are in fact suicides. Some are cops killing perps, some are citizens killing perps. They should not be counted when considering homicides.

    Gun murders are about 10,000 per year.... same as stabbing deaths....

    We also have some steel based ones in some malls. They make helmets and other various things. But I digress and shift from topic too much.

    Re: Gun Control

    We've got to focus on the problem, not the symptoms. If you are tired all the time, does it make sense for a doc to prescribe you cafiene pills, or to dig deeper to see what's causing the fatigue? Gun deaths are only a symptom.

    Re: Gun Control

    And we need to do this quickly. We are fast approaching technologies that will be by their very nature accessible to all...fearsome indeed, if used to harm or kill. You're afraid of guns? I'm afraid of the future...

    any gun that can accept a 10 round magazine can accept a 30 round magazine--you merely demonstrate how little you know about guns and magazines. Those guns are the choice of every major CIVILIAN law enforcement agency as well
