    Gonna keep ranting:

    That something CAN do good does not mean that it WILL do good. It's all about balance. Is there any possible way giving lunatics and morons deadly force with extreme ease a net positive?

    Stop, just stop. Virtually everyone on here who owns a gun has needed it to defend their home at some point. Life or death, man.

    If anything is done, it has to be a multifaceted approach. Just blaming these incidents on mental illness is about as useful as saying "Guns don't kill, people kill". I'd like to see more done along the lines of what's taken place over the last 25 years with cigarette smoking and drunk driving. Personally I'd like to ban certain weapons and ammo altogether, but aside from that, how about a campaign to make certain behaviors more socially unacceptable - like using certain extremely destructive ammunition, keeping guns unsecured and easily accessible to other family members, ban advertising for certain types of weapons and ammunition, stuff like that. Folks would absolutely howl, but if it could be done for smoking, why not?

    And I know this is going to sound like the old fogey that I am, but does anyone else think there might be some connection to violent video games and movies? What typically is the target audience for those? What is the typical demographic of these mass murderers? Again, we need to do more to make these things negative influences more socially unacceptable so young people will be less exposed to that level of violence.

    Let me clarify: To need guns to defend against guns is not an argument that guns are good.
    To need legs to run away from somebody that is chasing you is not an argument that having legs is good.

    Legs themselves will not kill someone. The bullets from the gun will.

    Are you trying to make a bad argument, or are you just as misguided and stupid as I know you are?

    Let's get to the real issue here: There isn't enough god in schools.

    I decided I'd bring the heat for Scat.

    So it's the bullets that need to be banned, not guns?

    Way to deflect and prolong such gun-toting idiocy.
