here to help: Then deal with all those other socio/economic issues and maybe there wouldn't be a need to tighten the laws.
doglover: First, start with the women. If women don't fark men who don't duel, all straight men are now duelists. Next, target the gay men, same thing. Now ALL men are duelists.Secondly, counter the counter culture. Offer legal benefits to dueling and increase penalties to non-dueling violence. In film and movies, make the duelists the cool heroes and the non-duelists the cowardly babyfarkers with chlamydia.Thirdly, make it lucrative. Good duelists get professional status and their duels are televised on ESPN. Make it the new NBA.If you set it up right, you'll see random violence like this drop right the fark down. Counterpoint: huge increase in non-random violence, but that's much preferable to kids getting shot by strangers.
DROxINxTHExWIND: nickerj1: here to help: doglover: You want to end the drug war and start the gun war.I don't believe in a full ban. Just some common sense of which there is very little from either side of the debate. Also it would have a chance of actually SAVING lives instead taking them.There is no causation between gun control and violent crime. There isn't even a correlation. So.... Let's take away bill of rights freedoms without any reason!Know what IS correlated to violent crime? Significant differences in median income in geographically proximate neighborhoods. But hey, legislating zoning laws that require certain incomes to live in certain areas, and geographically aligning the poor people next to slightly less poor people, and the rich people next to slightly less rich people, wouldn't be as cool as gunning for gun control.From the Institute of Pulled from the Ass Statistics or IPAS.

doglover: This is why we should bring back duels.When it's man to man sabres at dawn, nobody (except the two ultra-violent idiots) gets hurt. And you can be classy as fark like Mark Twain and decline the duel.
Walker: 18, 19, and 20 year old sisters at a club at 2am on a Monday morning. And the mother is living with them in subsidized housing because they are "so poor". I'm gonna go ahead and guess none of them have jobs, because if they did they could afford to live in a non-subsidized housing in a nice neighborhood if they had 4 incomes coming in, even if they were only making minimum wage.
