Really? What are you people actually trying to say? That guns are safe?
Guns are neither safe nor dangerous. They are metallic and inanimate. They can't do a damned thing on their own... except for my shotgun which, as I
previously mentioned, is watching me when it thinks I'm not looking,
That cigarettes don't cause cancer?
Cigarettes are also inamiate objects. They don't do a damned thing until someone sets one on fire. That act requires a human agency.
That everyone should just be able to go around doing whatever the hell they want to because they have the rights to Life and Liberty?
Well guess what?
I give up... what?
I have those rights too. And when I do NOT choose to carry a gun or drive a car or smoke a cigarette, I can still be shot, or run down, or die of lung
cancer. When your rights impede on MY rights, something has to give.
When my shotgun shoots at you, you can ban it THEN. Until then, it hasn't impeded any of your rights at all. MY shotgun, not some other guys. If his
shotgun jumps out from behind the weeds and shoots at you, ban HIS, and leave mine the hell alone, since it still hasn't done anything to you.
Besides, it's busy watching ME, and it's afraid of the dark... and it says there are bugs in the bushes, so it's not going out THERE...
How does that happen? Speed Limits. Concealed Carry Permits. Regulations to benefit the public safety, not impede on your personal rights.
Of course they do. They take away my right to make up my own mind.
You want to own 15 uzis? Go right ahead. I support your right to do just that. You want to walk around my neighborhood with 15 uzis? Now we have a
Can I walk around your neighborhood with 15 fuzzy bunnies then?
What's the difference if I'm not shooting at you with those bunnies... or the Uzis, either?
