    Time to ban subways before what appears to be a growing trend gets as out-of-hand as gun violence. For the second time in a month, a person was pushed to their death on the subway tracks.

    Father pushed to death under subway train was on tracks for '60 SECONDS' and nobody tried to help... as photographer who took THAT picture - One News Page

    Even though a previous rash of subway killings resulted in legislation intended to prevent further incidents, we now see a resurgence. Obviously, we need to ban subway trains NOW, before even more carnage is visited upon the traveling public.

    [QUOTEIn 1999, two very similar attacks — with mentally ill people pushing unsuspecting victims into the path of oncoming subway trains, one fatally — led to legislation giving families the right to demand court-ordered outpatient psychiatric treatment for their relatives. Known as Kendra’s Law, it permits state judges to order closely monitored outpatient treatment for seriously mentally ill people who have records of failing to take medication, and who have been frequently hospitalized or jailed or have exhibited violent behavior.][/QUOTE]

    Surely something can be done short of closing subways. How about a very high, chain-link fence between all waiting areas and the track. A gate or two that cannot be opened until the subway train is at a complete halt.

    (The OP is serious here, right? Huh?)

    Or perhaps positing an exercise in comparative reasoning.

    subways have purposes other than to kill.

    do guns?
