    Anyone with a faulty heart valve can drop dead of a heart attack. It's all over the place. Let's outlaw faulty heart valves.:cuckoo:

    Why don't we just outlaw crime? That way there wouldn't be any crime because you know, there would be laws against it.

    Crime that is.

    If we outlawed stupidity we'd need a hell of lot of new prisons.

    Let me get this straight ... these people want everyone to just stay at home clicking the same links over and over again .... just so they can avoid crime in other places ... which they won't go to because they are too busy clicking on the links over and over again?

    I would rather live, if I get hurt by crime ... oh well .... happened before and I doubt it will never happen again no matter what I do .... unless I sit here the rest of my life and don't go anywhere, but I got a small life to live still so not going to happen. Really, people are just losing perspective, as they say 'shit happens'.

    The fear of crime (for most of us) is a hell of lot more damaging to us personally than crime itself.

    which takes us back to a previous thread about someone getting shot.

    How much "no fear" is a good thing, and when does it cross the line into foolishness?

    As for guns, we all know that the profit margins of weapons manufacturers are more important than real humans.
