    People with knives kill people
    People with hammer kill people
    People with hands kill people
    people with feet kill people
    people with baseball bats kill people

    PEOPLE kill people
    People have always killed people
    People will always kill people

    This is one of those things you need to accept, you know like gravity.

    Yes but apparently we NEED to punish the 99.9% by infringing on their individual liberty and property, not to mention forcing every tax payer to pay for brand new layers of federal bureaucracy because of the 0.1% that do; gotta love that "rule by exception" and "guilty until proven innocent" reasoning we live by these days, huh? .

    But people with guns can kill 59 people at a go, people with knives often can't really kill more than 3 or 4, people with hammers probably 1, like people with hands and feet.

    But then one person dead and 59 people dead is the same to you, right?

    A truck in France killed 86 and wounded 458 people.

    That damn truck.

    Again, I'm not saying the gun acted all alone... but I guess it's easier for you to argue with me if you make up what I'm saying, instead of reading what I write, hey?

    If gun control worked, wouldn't it be evident?

    There are roughly 150-200 millions guns in america. What's your plan? We have thousands of gun control laws to deter criminal behavior. Do you honestly think by passing another law this is going to stop? Absolutely not. It will continue to get worse because we're a depraved society.

    It does work, just as well as illicit drug control, alcohol prohibition and prohibitions against money laundering do.

    One of the federal government's greatest talents is turning peaceful law abiding citizens into criminals and making crime an increasingly lucrative profession.
