    You can do that. But as I've pointed out innumerable times before, it's useless. It won't solve the problem everyone here complains about, which is gun violence and mass shootings. Furthermore, it has the effect of giving political cover to politicians who don't deserve it, and are like the rest of us in that they don't have a good solution to the problem.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    more people hunted 40 years ago. People didn't collect "assault rifles" or feel the need to carry a concealed hand gun to check their mail.

    Well someone on here showed that it did help but obviously more would need to be done to further fix the problem. We don't even have the bare minimum common sense laws in a number of states.

    And again with the subject change. It's good to know you have absolutely nothing of substance to defend your position.

    You brought up WMD. I responded. I'd say that one's on you.

    The automobile argument was already in play in the thread. I brought it back to point out the "but it has real uses" case to contrast with WMDs.

    As far as substance, you're the one wheeling about to WMDs and flailing about saying "subject change!".

    So you're saying a person or a society has a right to self defense.

    A different episode:
    To wage war, Captain? To kill millions of innocent people? To destroy life on a planetary scale? Is that what you're defending?

    That was what I thought you were going for originally. "We find interference in other people's affairs... most disgusting, but you gentlemen have given us no choice." "Yes, please leave us. The mere presence of beings like yourselves is intensely painful to us."

    Send him some money, it'll all be ok. And for "not being with him" you seem to be pretty "with him"

    It's the other way. We're the "Canadian hordes from the North." We might as well be Klingons as far as Hahvahd is concerned. We are, after all, the People's Ivy.

    Same store sales down 2.5%. I donít begrudge them because of their gun policy changes, but think they face a tough future. They donít really sell high quality stuff and their prices arenít anything special. Itís a good last minute place but that only goes so far.
