    Have you read much RAW? I'm a huge fan of his. He was a Berkeley mainstay way back when, and I spent a lot of time buying up his nonfiction at used bookstores when I was an undergrad there. A good friend of mine actually got to see him speak a year or two before he died. The man was an inspiration.

    (Also his Illuminatus! Trilogy is excellent)

    Don't ruffle my feathers, pal.

    Fine. I vote for "drugs." Drugs win over guns.

    Good day.

    If you have a gun you can always get drugs. But if you have drugs you may not be focused enough to get a gun.

    I don't think anyone is in favor of drug abuse just like no one is in favor of alcoholism.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    It's easy enough, and relatively free of controversy, to define “abusing” guns. Handling a gun in an unsafe manner, which creates an unreasonable danger to self or others would clearly be such an abuse. So would any unjust use of a gun to threaten or harm one's self or another person. It's really that simple. And the vast majority of uses that are made of the vast majority of guns, are clearly non-abusive.

    Drugs are a whole different animal. Their entire purpose is to harm the person who takes them. And by so doing, the person often harms others as well. How does one use drugs in a non-abusive way? The answer, quite clearly, is that one simply does not.

    Guns are nearly always ever only used non-abusively.

    Drugs are never used non-abusively; they are only ever used abusively. There is no non-abusive use for them.

    Clearly, the abusive use of either of these things should be illegal. I have little problem with the mere possession of something being illegal, when that thing has no non-abusive use, and the possession can be taken as prima facie evidence of an intent to abuse it; which is clearly the case with drugs, but not with guns.

    Yeah, but when drugs are abused, they harm only the guilty. When guns are abused, they harm the innocent.
