    It is not a health issue.

    Really? You want to go down another absurd path?

    Is a nuclear warhead a personal defensive device like a gun is?

    OK, public health specialists should be dismissed on public health issues. Climate change specialists should be dismissed on climate change. Infectious disease specialists should be dismissed on vaccination recommendations. Evolutionary biologists should be dismissed on evolution. We should only listen to Fox News for the real facts. Because they are the only ones without any nonsense. Got it.


    Really? You want to go down another absurd path? The North Koreans and Iranians need such tools for personal defense too.

    A tool is a tool. You don’t get to define words in the English language too.

    The N. Koreans need tools for personal defense too.

    Irrelevant comparisons.
    It is not a health issue no matter how much anyone wants it to be.

    Oy vey.
    I did not say it wasn't a tool. Duh! I distinguished between two different tools.
    Butter knifes are tools too. Some folks can even kill with them. You want to absurdly associate them with nuclear weapons too?
    Stop with the absurd bs.

    If any "public health specialist" compares guns to cigarettes they are mentally disabled.

    Wait 'til someone points one at you. I suspect something then'll strike you as a health hazard.

    Things to care about:
    1. The Second Amendment
    2. Attenuating the incidence of involuntary gun-related deaths and injuries.

    If caring about former means taking no materially effective action out of concern for the latter, I can disabuse myself of my care for the former. It's an easy choice, even for me, whom nobody would call a humanist.

    Good luck with that. I can't wait to sue every major company out there if this is constitutional. Cigarette companies will be first, followed by alcohol, car, swimming pools, drug etc., I'll be rich beyond my wildest dreams. Please push this through and don't take no for an answer!

    It will be interesting to see this play out. I'm not a fan at all of suing manufacturers (like the cigarette manufacturers) for the actions of the stupid.

    That said, I always see these things involving those families, and I can't help but be on their sides.

    I'm torn here.
