I never asked for ban of guns, but better control,
Quite often some of those in danger act proactively and start shooting at us, rest of people. Just this morning was hearing about this case. He shot only 2 dozens cars on highway, and his reasoning - "He says he fired a gun at drivers because he believed they were part of a government conspiracy against him. "
As you can see, this is exactly what study shows - more guns = more gun related deaths. More deaths = less security. It is just simple mathematics here, not too complicated, I hope.
I never asked for ban of guns, but better control, but if you like to go to that extent (which in USA really IS utopia, at least at the moment) and compare it with ban of airport to prevent crashes, this is another FAIL comparison. We already had comparison with cars and people willing to part with life as we know it rather then give up some gun control, but let me tell you, having gun regulated is like having air traffic regulated - more control - less crashes.
So, yeah - this discussion is not leading anywhere. We all know what 'well regulated' militia means in 2nd amendment and if this ever get to supreme court, you would see that gun advocates would loose by large just because of that part of wording. If our founding fathers were thinking differently, they would write it differently, and exclude this 'now confusing' words.
Does the right to bear arms outweight the right to life, liberty, and happiness that the constitution lays out as the supreme right of citizen.
Here is interesting video about Gun Control - from Jon Stewart.
I think that he makes a lot of sense... at least to me.
No wonder there are reference to hammers, cars... at least we all know where many of our gun addict members got their resources...
This also mirrors the same debate we have here... and paranoid reaction by many, star marking etc... only in 'merica...
Also previous video made by daily show...

I am on the hammer banning wagon now though. This thread caused me to do the research... now that I have found out how many people die because of them, I want them off our streets.
I am trying to bring this frog aboard.
