I hear this NRA analogy all the time, and quite frankly - it is getting pretty old. I mean it was "cute" the first couple thousand times, but really?

There is a difference though - I mean between a hammer and an AR-15. AR-15's were designed to take lives. Hammers were designed to build lives. The Carpenter used a hammer, not an AR-15.
