Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Instead you just keep spouting NRA BS like it's bible.
You can't even admit that an assault weapon is designed for killing.

<quoted text>Hardly it's also very simple, he repeated many times what could have been achieved in two. There is another factor here also , the body size of a 5-8 year old is considerably less and 1/4 to 1/3 an adult so the wounds would be greater. And ultimately death achieved much easier. Actually unthinkable , that's why it is nearly unbelievable.
As I have seen no physical evidence to prove it, I'm not taking the bait.
No evidence to prove what?

I'm Ok with some reasonable gun control.

But what about other killers like DUI's?

Every day in America, another 27 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes. &#65532;
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration FARS data, 2012.

Drunk driving costs the United States $132 billion a year. &#65532;
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration FARS data, 2010

If all 17 million people who admitted to driving drunk in 2010 had their own state, it would be the fifth largest in the U.S. &#65532;

(Lacey, John et al.2007 National Roadside Survey of Alcohol and Drug Use by Drivers: Alcohol Results. Washington, DC: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, December 2009.)

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens, and about one-third of those are alcohol related. &#65532;

(National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. "Traffic Safety Facts 2008: Young Drivers". DOT 811 169. Washington DC: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2009)

Teen alcohol use kills about 6000 people each year, more than all illegal drugs combined. &#65532;

Good info.

They will of course ignore that because they like getting drunk.

You may have something there.

As you know though, I'm an optimist.

I already got a guy to go from 6000 to 12000 years, and I'll keep working on him.

We need to decriminalize drugs.

You want to know what the United States would be like with the citizens disarmed. Look no further than Mexico.

The last figure released by the Mexican government on the number of dead during its 4 1/2-year, military-led crackdown on organized crime came in January, at just over 34,000. It covered the period from the start of the drug war in December 2006 until the end of 2010.
