    Just set the suicides and the accidental deaths of children aside for a moment and consider the commonsense of the situation: More guns, small arms and weaponry CLEARLY equals health, wealth and happiness. What could be more obvious?

    ^^Go live in Chicago since they have the toughest ant-gun laws in the country.
    Just leave your windows open, take evening walks and draw up a solid will.

    Safety laws don’t kill people, they strangle the life out of them…
    Aside from the quip gun clubs and shooting only 50 or so years ago was one of the US’s major sporting pastimes. It has only been in the very recent past that massive attempts at gun restrictions have been made.
    Sure, there were restrictions on where you could carry but no serious attempts were made to disarm the populace or restrict self-defense.
    It has been the rise of Progressivism and the Left in America that has seen a widespread and determined call for disarming the public. But, then again one should expect that from the Left as they do love a good dictatorship; even if it is one of virtue.

    Gun control, YES. But, equally responsible for the violence in our society is the steady diet of shootings, explosions and assaults shown on television, in movie theaters and video games which affects all of us!

    And, in so many “accidental” shootings, if the gun hadn’t been so handy, the shooting would not have occurred.

    In fairness, Enoki, up until the last half of the 20th century there were not the types of mass killings that we have seen increase in this century. It’s not just progressivism. It may be a knee-jerk reaction with no satisfactory outcome, but there is reason for people to fear easy access to guns.

    Unfortunately, Dogday you are wrong. That sort of thing did happen in he past just as it does today. The difference is that we are in the electronics age now and information whips around the planet in a matter of minutes now.
    Many of the sort of incidents that we read about today nationally were unknown beyond the immediate area where they happened 100 years ago.
    It is a knee jerk reaction by the historically illiterate.
    Some examples. Did you know:
    A plane crashed into the Empire State
    Building 24 December 1944?
    That vehicles using IED’s have been detonated in the US before like a horse drawn one on Wall Street that damaged a bank and killed 24 people or another in LA that damaged the Hurst newspaper building?
    Shootings like the St. Valentine’s day “Massacre” occured from time to time. The police and even the US Army used deadly force on rioters and striking workers more than once with mass casualties.
    It is a lack of historical perspective coupled with a “do something” mentality that is crippling the US today.

    Since bullets taken internally are dangerous to ones health, they whould only be obtained by prescription. Guns don’t kill people, bullets do.

    Right, because in every country where American movies are shown, there’s high gun violence. Oops! Except that’s not true. The cowardice of every single Republican and way too many Democrats in the senate is shameful. It’s not as if the surgeon general has any power to regulate guns anyway. And every single utterance he’s made on this topic is factually true. The NRA is not interested in facts.

    “Do you know that we have a “quick-response” police force, at least in 90% of our nation ??”
    And when every second counts the police are only minutes away…

    Guns are not a healthcare issue any more than cars are. Yes there are injuries and deaths associated with both, but these are not biological issues which is what the Surgeon General should be talking about.

    Boy, 1opinion, and you too Night-Gaunt, this isn’t a either – or issue. Safety rules can easily be made obsessively pedantic and today often are.
    This can be as simple as self obvious warning labels forced on things because idiot lawyers (that is redundant sorry… there isn’t any other kind…) and safety freaks demand them.
    A coffee cup with “Warning: Contents may be hot”. That is one small paper cut in a death of a million paper cuts.
    As for airbags: They are almost as dangerous as not having them. What kind of safety device needs a bunch of warning labels plastered everywhere (look at the sun visors in your car) about how dangerous your safety equipment is?
    If airbags are so great why don’t they get used in race cars?
    Ever hear of “Servesafe?” Everybody has to take a test and get a card. Nothing in the resturant industry changed only now idiot bureaucrats (again a redundancy) can feel good that they did something.
    Warning labels on five gallon buckets?
    There are thousands upon thousands of idiot safety rules in place today that eat up billions of dollars to do nothing or next to nothing. But, there are those who proclaim confidently that no matter how many rules the government makes they are all good and necessary for our protection. I wave the BS flag at that idiocy.

    This is probably only somewhat relevant, but I recall a scene in the movie from the ’60’s called HAWAII, dealing with the proud Christian missionaries who went there in the 1700’s to convert the “heathens” One star, Max Von Sydow, is one of the missionaries who sees a practice he does not approve of, and goes to the Hawaiian Queen, demanding she pass laws against such practices (customs, really) .
    NO, she replied, TOO MUCH LAW MAKE PEOPLE MAD!

    Everyone where I live has a gun room, big deal.
    Anyway, some on the left want Ruth Bader Ginsburg to resign now, so they can replace her with another liberal before the senate passes to GOP control.
