More than 20 people drowned last year near here. We should outlaw water.
Some guns are designed for the sole purpose of killing people. Others are designed for killing tasty animals. Sure its true that the tasty animal killing kind can be used on people, but it doesn't seem to happen all that much.
Indeed they are, but I think most people would differentiate between a semi automatic hunting rifle and an assault weapon with a 30 round magazine.
Just outlaw bullets. ;)
Guns are tools. PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE.
Guns don't kill people. People kill people. They sometimes use a gun, or a knife, or a rock or a poison, or their own hands. It is not possible to outlaw everything that can be used for killing.
yup....outlaw...alcohol, fast cars, wars.....
I say we outlaw humans
they are trying to implement prohibition in other parts of society as if it has ever worked. Also people kill people should caffeniene be illegal it kills 15 ppl a year.
well i wasn't really speaking about guns, but outlawing semiautomatic weapons isn't prohibition of semiautomatic weapons.
Well if we outlaw guns they're just gonna use IEDs, axes, knives, swords and other melee weapons. Not to mention the growth of the black market, and all illegal weapons that are going to pop up.
But then they'll just get their guns through the black market, or start constructing explosives or similar to achieve the same number of deaths. Not to forget the danger of people with melee weapons ganging up for these attacks.
yes lets outlaw poison and thumbs too
