If we are going to ban guns, we better ban cars too. After all, there are people out there who have used cars to run into and kill other people....on purpose.
See...sounds a bit rediculous doesn't it?
Why is it that when it comes to killing people with guns we aren't going after the ones that illegally possess guns. Nope we got go after the guns even though it was just the instrument of death that the shooter used. We starting hearing, "Guns kill people!!!" Yeah, so do cars, drugs, knives, gaseous vapors, household chemicals, electricity and much much more!
When it comes to cars, we go after people who use cars to kill people.(i.e. toughening laws and restricting access to vehicles for those who drive under the influence of alcohol, drugs, anger, etc) One could make the argument that cars serve a more useful purpose in society than guns, but look at the stats for communities that have banned guns. In the majority, if not all, the crime rate has gone up. Why? Deterent. If a criminal isn't sure who has a gun, they are less likely to go into a place.
Okay, off my box.
