    No. I'm saying that nobody has the right to own his fellow man.

    The 13th amendment settled that.


    Before that, the right to own property applied.

    You seriously think that owning a tool is comparable to enslaving one's fellow man?

    No, just that attempts to ban ownership of both have been made,

    And preventing non-gun owners from having a say in gun control is akin to preventing abolitionists having a voice in the banning of slavery.

    But owning a gun is nothing at all like enslaving one's fellow man. The analogy doesn't hold.

    How so ?




    Here's another analogy, how about only letting drug addicts vote on whether to legalize drugs....ar you more comfortable with that ?

    Not really. If we are going to have an election, everyone should be allowed to vote.

    I agree.

    Well we need some basic qualifications, age, not being incarcerated etc
    I think legal residents who live in the USA and pay taxes should be allowed to vote
    I also think all eligible voters must be registered and every state must be obliged to register them
    Furthermore I think attendance at a voting station should be mandatory on election day (you don't have to vote but you should have to show up)


    I think every voter (whether or not they have even touched a gun) should vote on gun control.

    Unless of course she;s physically injured, but that can happen to men too...probably even more so.
    That is not sexist, that is an observable fact,Men work longer and retire after, women usually take a break in their thirties to stay home and then return after, there is no problem with that, this is why the Wage Gap is false

    Yes it is

    You're making an observation that men work to a higher age than women, who retire earlier than men.
    (And that's NOT why there's a wage gap - that is sexist thinking)


    BUT you're drawing a conclusion that, that is because women physically NEED to retire earlier.
    THAT is sexist and that is what you have absolutely no evidence for.
