Well, there's only one word for what just transpired from the sentinel that posted these links -- SO GOOD AT GOOGLE; pathetic.

Hmmm...so, since gun control does not eliminate arson, therefore, there is no point in gun control! That's some convoluted *logic* even by teabagger *standards*.

I'm still flabbergasted about it all, and will stipulate that laughing was only for the dedicated Googler, not any tragic deaths by any manner.

It's amazing. They are looking for loopholes absolutely everywhere. The stench of their desperation permeates every Topix post. It's always been like arguing with third graders but now, it's like arguing with 3rd graders who refuse to bathe.

Not only old Colts. While incredibly rare there are other firearms which may discharge when dropped.

Well, more than a few have abused guns so we should definitely eliminate them.
This conservative 'logic' is FUN!
Are you afraid they’re coming for your welfare check?

Yes, I’ve been pulled over in Atlanta. More than once. Never issued a citation. I lived in Atlanta for 26 years.

It's true.
Well, 2 university students were killed by a whacko in 2002:
*** But ***:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_...
"In 2002, an international student killed two fellow students at Monash University in Victoria with pistols he had acquired as a member of a shooting club. The gunman, Huan Yun Xiang, was acquitted of crimes related to the shootings due to mental impairment and remains under psychiatric care."
"A study co-authored by Simon Chapman argued that reduction in firearm numbers had prevented mass shootings because in the 18 years prior to the Port Arthur massacre there were 13 mass shootings and in the decade since 1996 there have been none.[39]"
http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/20/opinion/donohue...
"Consider what happened in Australia after a crazed gunman killed 35 people in Port Arthur, Tasmania, in 1996.
The Australian federal government persuaded all states and territories to implement tough new gun control laws. Under the National Firearms Agreement (NFA), firearms legislation was tightened throughout the country. National registration of guns was imposed and it became illegal to hold certain long guns that might be used in mass shootings.
The gun ban was backed up by a mandatory buy-back program that substantially reduced gun possession in Australia.
The effect was that both gun suicides and homicides (as well as total suicides and homicides) fell. Importantly, while there were 13 mass shootings in Australia during the period of 1979--96, there have been none in the sixteen years since.
In 1996, then-Prime Minister John Howard stated that the "whole scheme is designed to reduce the number of guns in the community and make Australia a safer place to live." The Australian attorney general praised the cooperation and responsibility of Australian firearms owners with the gun controls and buy-back, saying, "they have been paid cash for their firearms - giving our nation a welcome Christmas gift by removing unnecessary high-powered firearms from the community. It offers all of us the real chance of a safer festive season and New Year.""
http://www.latimes.com/news/world/worldnow/la...
"Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, a conservative who led the bipartisan reforms on banning weapons and the buyback of more than 650,000 guns after the Port Arthur massacre, was visiting the United States this summer when a gunman shot and killed 12 at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo.
Howard argued in a commentary for the Age newspaper in Melbourne that Australia was correct to ban weapons and that the United States would be wise to do the same.
Homicides involving firearms dropped by 59% in the decade following Australia’s gun law reforms, Harvard University researchers reported last year in an analysis of the Australian statistics.
“In the 18 years prior to the 1996 Australian laws, there were 13 gun massacres (four or more fatalities) in Australia, resulting in 102 deaths,” Howard noted.“There have been none in that category since the Port Arthur laws.”"
Go back, read his post again. Then apologize.

He did not agree there have been no mass killing in Australia since the near ban of firearms in Australia. I’ll help you. Here are his words again.

"He once claimed that there have been no mass killings in Australia since their gun laws went into effect. He is constantly absurd."

In your mind pointing out a flaw in Deer Whisperers post is being anti fairyman? You’re just full of yourself. Not sure why, nothing to be proud of.
