    So nuke control is good in theory but horrible in practice?

    Fortunately, no nut has fired off a nuke, so that's a hypothesis.

    Nuke control is good for modern society, and has no impact on lone wolves. Therefore we should do it.

    So long as they remain difficult to procure, we shouldn't have an issue with a nut setting off a device. The problem is that nations known for sponsoring terrorism may not show great restraint in handing out these weapons to people who support their cause, and whose causes they support. We need to take some action to keep those nations from developing these weapons, it's just a matter of what actions could possibly work.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.
