LasersHurt: I think it's a quick and easy "out" to ignore the conversation, and you're right that it's not trolling. I think they legitimately believe there is no reason to consider guns any differently from any other object, and there is no reason to even track or acknowledge crimes done with guns. After all, crime's crime and furthermore suchas


Crime. Boy, I don't know.

I have to admit, my grandmother's made some pot roasts in her pressure cooker that could kill scores of people.

GoldSpider: Tomahawk513: How does this relate to guns? Well, a few months ago, 20 kids were wiped out in an instant by a person with a particularly lethal firearm.

By "particularly lethal" do you mean "semi-automatic"?  Just wondering.



Yeah seriously.  An assault rifle is impossible to define, so I want to bait you into saying something that is technically incorrect so that I can accuse you of trying to ban something you don't even understand.

It would be absurd for someone to propose a pressure cooker ban, pressure cooker regulations, or pressure cooker registration, so it's equally absurd for anyone to propose similar things for guns, which are the exact same thing!

Guns are just metal things, like any other thing made of metal.  We don't regulate spoons!  Why would we regulate guns?

It's crazy that some people in here don't understand this incredibly convincing and persuasive argument.

TerminalEchoes: vpb: Gun nuts take that "we can't have gun control because other things kill people too" argument seriously.
I don't think it's trolling.

During the State of the Union speech back in January, didn't President Obama say "if we can do anything to protect just one child, shouldn't we do it?" Sure. A child was killed by a pressure cooker. Regulate! It's not trolling, it's using Obama's manipulative tactics against him.


Run with that. Seriously, keep repeating it. Regulating guns in response to gun violence is the exact same thing as regulating pressure cookers in response to the Boston bombings. Always say that. People will respect you.

iron_city_ap: I wonder how the senator would react if somone left a pressure cooker (not an actual bomb) infront of his office.


What would be more concerning is the person who buys someone a pressure cooker, backpack and an alarm clock as a gift to someone and then is too cheap to buy wrapping paper so just stuffs them inside each other and puts it under the Christmas tree or on a table.

When used correctly, a gun results in a dead person/thing.  When used correctly, a pressure cooker results in dinner.

According to Obama's speech, yes it's the same thing. Of course it's stupid. I won't debate that.

Repeat my last post, but insert "Obama said that" right before "regulating guns in response". This is an idea that must spread. It is clearly a well-thought out point. You might get Obama impeached over this.

See, now you're just putting words in my mouth. My point was that his knee jerk Appeal to Emotion (or For the Children) speech was nothing but rhetoric and not clearly thought out. No one wants to seriously regulate pressure cookers. People are just pointing out that--according to Obama's exact words--anything that has ever killed a child should be regulated or banned.


OK, fair enough. "Obama said that" was obviously putting words in your mouth when what you meant to say was "according to Obama's exact words". I apologize for completely misstating your idea. I don't know how I could have gotten it so, so wrong.

One of my cousins, whom I usually ignore, posted this on Facebook:

My first reaction is that it is illegal to manufacture, possess, or use a bomb. Further we highly regulate the operation of automobiles and most states require people who do so to be insured. So why the pro-gun folks are trying to draw parallels between them is beyond me.
