Prank Call of Cthulhu: Based on the comments to TFA, and in this thread, there's a rather interesting correlation between lacking a sense of humor and fetishizing guns.
DoctorCal: netweavr: If they ban guns someone's just going to invent a better weapon. Maybe a phasor or sonic screwdriver...Maybe we SHOULD ban cars. Only then will we get our flying car!
paygun: mrshowrules: But guns are right! OK, fine. You can get a musket if you are going to have that attitude. Want something more, you have to prove you are not insane or are actually part of a well-regulated State militia. Let the State assume some actual liability if you decide to go on a shooting spree.Really I'm okay with this. I'll accept whatever restrictions people will accept for other civil rights like free speech or freedom of association.
penthesilea: How about this:For every $1000 you pay the IRS in taxes each year, you get to have 1 gun./not serious at all
omgbears: Also can we charge firearms owners whose guns are used in mass shootings with manslaughter?
Princess Ryans Knickers: We should begin arming children in kindergarten!
paygun: Carn: So my idea is ok then because the violent maniacs were already violent maniacs and it doesn't matter if they're violent maniacs with guns or not. I'm sticking to it and I'm adding rocket launchers, nerve toxin, and anti-personnel mines.Well, I take a pro-choice approach to gun ownership. I know there are lots of abstinence-only people out there but what can you do.
HotIgneous Intruder: Perhaps only rich white landowners should own guns?
Frozboz: And how exactly would this have stopped the Sandy Hook shootings?
