    “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 ….

    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.

    @The Wolf In Your Midst

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

    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?

    Bad taste… stop linking your anti – X program with the misery of the innocents.

    Actually, bombs, rocket launchers, etc. are weapons and therefore could be considered “arms”. NRA zombies seem to have no problem with regulation of these items. Why then the difficulty with reasonable regulation of semiautomatic and automatic, multiple round devices? Well, the answer to that is easy. Bombs don’t have quite the symbolic member-extension value that rifles do for the worshippers at the altar of the almighty NRA. Surprising that they aren’t lobbying for everyone to be able to have rocket launchers, though. Talk about a symbolic “extension”….

    @ARodney

    Unfortunately, ARodney, your understanding of the US Constitution is sadly deficient. I can point out to you the exact spot where ownership of arms is protected, but I doubt you can even FIND the word “bomb” in there.
     
    But, I suppose if you think corporations are people, you can find a way to justify thinking bombs are arms. All it requires is torturing the English language within a millimetre of its life. So you’re probably a big fan of torture, too, eh?
