    “Bombs already are outlawed, Steve. It sure did a lot of good, didn’t it?”

    It made somebody feel good.

    Yeah, let’s grossly oversimplify yet another issue and paint people with the caricature brush in order to draw out the partisans into sniping at each other again. That helps, right?

    No, we totally understand the difference. Bombs are form of “arms” designed to kill vast numbers of people, and the supreme court has ruled repeatedly that it is perfectly constitutional to outlaw them. High-capacity magazines are also a form of “arm” designed to kill vast numbers of people, and it is perfectly constitutional to outlaw them as well. My understanding on this is much more accurate than yours, Scott.

    So, just what IS the difference between a gun and a bomb? They both have triggers, they both kill innocent people – and if either is outlawed, then only outlaws will have ….

    This is just the usual “apples and oranges” kind of “logic” typical of those who can’t be bothered to learn how to THINK!


    Because “this”, as well as “that”, can be used to “bad end”, just PASS A LAW, and they’ll both . . . ? Utter nonsense!!!!


    But then again, comic postings are just about all that might be expected on a comics blog!

    No, it shows that the wing nuts don’t understand the ILL-logic of their logic………

    Twisted thinking there Steve. It’s illegal to make bombs, and in certain places illegal to even mention the word bomb. It’s illegal to make bomb threats. The law didn’t prevent someone from making a bomb and killing people.

    that would be nice, but it is the partisan special interests (the NRA) which is preventing any meaningful debate

    “meaningful debate”

    Definition: debate that goes the way you want it to.

    You can build weapons of mass destruction from basically anything if you know what you are doing. So you have to fight knowledge. Hey, guess what, the U.S. is winning the fight against terror…

    To paraphrase the gun lobby on this site: Why make new laws when criminals won’t obey them? Same question for you….should we remove all bans on bombs? Criminals won’t follow the law; why must you leave me defenseless?

    Can you see how silly that looks?

    Benson does not understand, These cooks went online, did a Google search on how to make pressures cooker bombs.

    If we did not have Google or access to the Internet, then this bombing would never have happened.

    Since they used the Internet to find the recipe to build bombs, should we ban The Internet?

    @I Play One On TV

    We must Ban the Internet an use of Google as this is how these cooks were able to find the Recipe to build Pressure Cooker Bombs. Can you see how silly this looks?
