    bullshit. that is no deflection. how many cars are used to kill on purpose compared to the tool that was invented to do that very thing. stop being an idiot.

    Some have posted, in reference to firearm control, that ONLY "a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun". Thus, the title.
