    If you knew an assault weapons ban would save one child's life, would you support it. A simple question demanding a simple answer.

    No, because it's not the guns fault. Trying to tug on the heart strings with an invalid argument doesn't work.

    No.

    If I knew weakening the 1st Amendment meant saving one child's life, the answer would also be no.

    If I knew that weakening the amendment abolishing slavery would save the life on one child, the answer would still be no.

    No, because its simply not true. But then again good luck with those rose colored glasses.

    Flip the question.
    If you knew unlimited access to guns would save 1 kids life, would you support it?

    No. For the simple fact that assault weapons were already banned once. It didn't help then and it won't help now. Only a naive fool would think otherwise.

    if you knew murdering a child in cold blood would save the lives of two other children, would you murder that child?

    What a fucked up, meaningless, assinine question.
