    Evil bigot father with assault weapon assaults teens

    Is this a good example of why we should outlaw all guns?

    Not a single cluster of living fruit was, or ever will be, harvested from the tree of legality. Law can only produce “dead works,” from which we need to have conscience purged just as much as from “wicked works.”

    So you found a story where someone used a gun for something good. Do you think that ends the gun debate? Has someone said that guns are always used for evil purposes?

    Well, actually, yes. I have seen that quite a few times. Guns are only made to kill people! Gun murders! Implying, of course, they are only made for the committing of murder and the only thing responsible for the murder is the gun.

    And, no, it won't stop the debate, because the people who want to remove guns don't care how often they are used for positive purposes. Admitting there are positive usages for guns, and millions upon millions of people who have never used their firearms to hurt another person, doesn't fit their agenda.

    I see some people's fear of guns as irrational. They will freak out if they are in the same room as a gun. They actually will fear the gun just because it's there. No one has to be holding it, or using it threaten anyone. They just lose it based upon the gun being there. In other words they have an irrational fear of an inanimate object that can do them no harm just by existing. It takes a human being using that gun to make it do anything. Yet these people are so ignorant and so bound up in their fears that they cannot understand that. These people have simply been brainwashed into such an irrational fear. To me it's like someone who will fear a stone because stones have been used to kill people.

    Given the 58 killed and over 500 wounded in Las Vegas in a matter of minutes by one disturbed individual with 17 guns, tell us again why the fear of guns is "irrational" and just how the shooter could have inflicted all that carnage from his hotel room armed with "stones!"

    Omce again, whoosh, right over Cartoon Boy's head.
    A gun cannot choose to take action, any more than a stone can.

    Sorry, but you are a prime example of what you just responded to.
