How so? I'm not the one insisting on taking rights from innocent people, nor kioa Nov 2014 #143
no, you just don't want to do anything to stop innocent people from being killed by samsingh Nov 2014 #147

There are no accidental deaths from bicycles. Deaths of bike riders are typically caused-- eridani Nov 2014 #151
i think that's true. samsingh Nov 2014 #171
and more people die from old age. what's your point? samsingh Nov 2014 #33
My point was specifically stated in the post you responded to kioa Nov 2014 #37

The non accidental ones don't count, I take it. SheilaT Nov 2014 #90
There is already a law against murder & lacking a firearm doesn't prevent suicides. kioa Nov 2014 #95
But lacking a firearm tends to drastically reduce the suicide rate and other murder rates. SheilaT Nov 2014 #125
Not having a gun doesn't drastically reduce suicide rate. kioa Nov 2014 #148

Who has stated sarisataka Nov 2014 #67
innocent implies sentience. the admission is that the gun is not an inanimate object samsingh Nov 2014 #97

A terrible tragedy sarisataka Nov 2014 #13
Such attitudes are despicable, but they are intrinsic to their argument. kioa Nov 2014 #14

Scissors are fine, not designed to kill and can not kill easily. Killing is child's play with guns, Fred Sanders Nov 2014 #117
I see that you are dodging the central issue ... Straw Man Nov 2014 #140
Killing is child's play when the child has a gun, it is not complicated. Just twitch a finger. Dead. Fred Sanders Nov 2014 #156
The child's finger should never be on the gun. Straw Man Nov 2014 #157

Post #32, dearee, so now you are going to add to your arsenal to justify your illogic? Fred Sanders Nov 2014 #60
