For rainman and the various other people on the Justin Eilers thread who have a real hard time understanding a basic point.
In an ideal world everyone should be allowed to do whatever they like. In theory, Anarchy is the best political system.
Problem is, that doesn’t seem to work in practice. If there had been no guns in Justin Eiler’s murderer’s houes, there is a good likelihood that no-one would have died. the root cause of the problem was drink and aggression, the gun turned a bad situation into a nightmare.
I would suggest that the gun laws in the US have nothing to do with people being able to protect themselves and are more to do with a small but influential group of people who use scare tactics to promote their own selfish agenda.
Your average NRA member is not affected by the terrible problems that easy access to guns cause in underprivilaged communities in the US and what’s more, they couldn’t care less.
OK, lets see if people can respond to this without the need to resort to name calling, offensive language or straw man arguments.
