jimk777: "Gun Violence" is such a retarded term.  Think about it.  It just sounds so stupid.  The guns aren't coming to life and becoming violent little bastards.


Oh, this thread is a gold mine of gun fanatic crazy!

Same thing with "snowball fight." Absolutely retarded. The snowballs aren't coming to life and hurling themselves at each other.

And I flip out whenever I hear the phrase "drug abuse." The drugs aren't abusing anyone! There's no such thing as "drug abuse." Only people who abuse drugs. The drugs are the real victims here!

IlGreven: Propain_az: The only violence there is, is people violence.  A "gun" is just a tool, like a hammer or 3/8" drill bit.  Usually harmless, but in the wrong hands..deadly.

Used as directed, a hammer has nonlethal useful purposes.

Used as directed, a gun does nothing but kill.


All of my guns, which have been used as directed and have never killed anything but pieces of paper, would disagree with you.  What an extraordinarily vapid perspective.

The argument that violent media is responsible for shootings must be accurate because no other country in the world has access to violent media.
