Hypothesis contrary to fact. Children, people, are not possessions. You know, when I wrote the prior post, I thought, surely he's evolved enough not going to broach the odious and irrational "people as possessions" line. Sure as God made little green apples, that is precisely where you went. That really doesn't answer the question I posed. Yes or no alone does. The gun qualifier pales by comparison for it establishes for yourself the option that you might consider your "prized possessions" worth killing for, albeit using an implement other than a gun.
