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.

Well looky here, we've agreed upon something. Now if science could fine a cure for Cheetos dust, we'd be that much closer to a perfect world.

The gun is essentially an extension of the pen*s.
Which is why its mostly macho american lunatics that wave their aks in the air on tv.
Now now are you really accusing all those American soldiers in Afghanistan of having small dicks?
Because they the only ones I see carrying them.

I didn't give a hunting analogy, I gave a defense analogy.

Depends on how hard you try to. Zero effort = zero effect

Sometimes you just don't know a person's true colors until you are on opposing sides of an issue.

Some people can discuss issues and some cannot.

I have to get rid of my truck! I bought it because I have a small d*ck!
I have to get rid of my nice car! I bought it because I have a small d*ck!
I have to get rid of my big house! I bought it because I have a small d*ck!
I have to fill in my swimming pool! I bought it because I have a small d*ck!
I have to get rid of my big screen TV! I bought it because I have a small d*ck!

Isn't that really a way to control the weak minded? Tell them that the only reason they like what you don't, is because they they aren't really men.

I call it stupid.

I am not saying I disagree, just asking for a bit of levity in the matter. It's very rare that wild animals attack humans without provocation, especially in the US.

The reality of the issue is that banning something works about as well as terrorism, telling someone they can't do something versus telling them that if they do it they'll get punished, in other words. If it was that easy, we'd not be seeing debates like this.

<quoted text>I don't think any of the 8,563 murdered will be throwing their hats in the air and jumping up and down with joy at that statistic, do you? Look, as you know I'm a gun owner, and I agree something should be done. My problem is the word "something". Everyone wants "something" done, but I've yet to find any coherent suggestion that would actually curb the problem. The core problem is the deranged mind that can concoct and carry out his desire for mass murder. If that individual is truly intent on completing his "mission", no legislative deterrent is going to stop him, period. Anyway, I believe this entire discussion is moot as the clamor for new gun control initiatives seems to be slowing to a crawl. The economy, jobs, the deficit will slowly come back to the forefront, and gun control will quietly slip through the cracks as it has in the past.
It's pathetic how easily we forget.

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

So is home invasions but it's better to be prepared than to be caught off guard, helpless, defenseless & hopeless.

It's like having a condom handy - better to have one when you need one rather than need one and not have one.

I agree. A gun ban would solve nothing.

Nutritional labeling provides important information.

With education directed to the consumer, much can be done to reduce the incidence of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other unhealthy conditions.

But how can you educate people about deadly weapons when you can't even convince them that the world is much older than 6000 years?
