No, Crim, I did respond soberly to your question. The fact that crazies are using a poor choice of weapon for their purposes just points up to the efficacy of Hollywood and their indoctrination of our youth that handguns and black plastic-y semi automatic rifles are the best things to dispatch others in their misguided attempts to rectify some indecipherable wrong or injustice in their heads.
Because as I have already stated, if a bloodbath were truly their goal and they were dedicated to making that happen, a jug of gasoline and a match are far more eefective and efficient than that **** black AR-15 or boxy Glock to send innocents off this mortal coil. Yet there is no call for gasoline exams or handling classes. Why? Because no one uses them at this time.
And therein is the lie of the gun control argument: If only you ban gun X, or 30 round magazine Y peace will break out in all our schools, theaters, and shopping malls. And that is utter BS.
The mentally ill are the problem, but we as a nation would rather medicate them to their eyeballs and concentrate on guns instead. It is treating the symptom, not the disease.
But my initial question speaks to that concern. Because guns are the fixation in this country, what kind or type would you be willing to allow in exchange for your "safety"? I hate to break it to you, but banning all guns isn't going to happen and even if that were to occur, tragedies like Portland, Sandy Hook, and Aurora would still take place because you haven't addressed the core problem.
