    Really very amazing to those who thought airplanes had to be hijacked by Sly Stallone and a couple dozen uzi's. And, up until that day, that was pretty much all of us.

    The facts of that terrorist attack also makes a very good case against everyone carrying guns.

    Just like the unarmed people who took down Loughner at the scene of the Tucson mass shooting, guns would not have helped that day. (With the exception of an armed Air Marshall. IOW, a trained professional rather than the idiocy that the gun cartel is recommending.)

    Guns would not have stopped McVeigh either. And, I'll bet others can think of horrible mass murders where guns would not have made a difference.

    As for the more than thirty murders we have in the US every day, its obvious that guns are no help there either.

    Well I've been a proponent of banning dull to sharp objects for years. Thanks for bringing to light the dangers of box cutting. Can't people just rip the tape off anyways?

    Something that always pissed me off about that attack -

    No one could have known the buildings would come down the way they did. The terrorists were watching CNN right along with the US and I can just see them doing the happy dance when they saw the buildings come down. It was incredible coup for them and one which I hoped we would learn from.

    But, we learned next to nothing. Instead of going after terrorists immediately, the idiot R prez and the rw's went after people who had nothing to do with the attack. And, stupidly, the haters continue to go after people who did not attack us.

    Neither are Cops then, according to your Illogic. ;) Good try though. Some day you will probably figure out that square peg round hole dilemma that has you so baffled. :) Sometimes ya just need to step back and recheck your premise.

    If you've ever worked with one, you'd know that as a tool, one can do so much more with them. You start banning everything, we are all going to end up eating with flexible plastic sporks. There comes a time where reason needs to intervene. In all things, there is balance.

    I'll support banning guns when Obama et all stop having armed Security Service as body guards, put their children in unsecured public schools, Diane Feinstein gives up her Conceal Carry Permit, and drugs are legalized.

    I feel exactly the same way about Mayor Bloomberg. Funny, in NYC, if you are attacked, and use anything to defend yourself from harm, you are at the mercy of first the DA, and second a Judge or Jury, if they, in hind site, do not approve of the necessity and the level of the response, regardless of number of assailants or circumstance. Sad when one's best option is leaving the scene before the Police show. Figure from a few to to 30 minutes head start. ;) Seriously, it is a problem here, especially with roving gangs of Teenagers.

    I'll still opt to be judged by 12 instead of being carried by 6.
