    If you knew a peanut butter and peanut product ban would save one child's life, would you support it. A simple question demanding a simple answer.

    You know my answer to that one already.

    If you're a parent and your kid has a peanut or any other allergy then it's up to you to protect them not me.

    How many kids drown in swimming pools and lakes?

    No but I can can think of other law-abiding purposes for peanut butter...


    People should be specially certified and classified as competent and capable to wield a weapon which has no other law-abiding purpose than to kill massive amounts of people.

    "Only if that child were my child". A corollary to the Callous Conservative ideology, "I've got mine, screw the rest of you!"

    A reasonable person wouldn't simply dismiss the death of one child as inevitable, a reasonable person would talk about the loss of life and how this one vulnerable child can be protected from PB.

    A reasonable person wouldn't post a thread wherein a PB sandwhich carries the same risk of mass killings as does an AR 15. The analogy is absurd on its face.

    Peanut Butter isn't designed to kill people... guns are.

    Argument fail.

    :lol: It is quite an emotional manipulative appeal..if only to save the life of one child...we'd have to get rid of all sorts of things...but then you have to get back to the practical matter of law-abiding purposes and recognize the huge difference between violent weapons of mass murder and an allergic reaction to food products...
