    OOOOHH, this bites!
    As it should.
    Wake up.
    Guns do kill people. What kind of logic can deny that?

    @Ottodesu

    Guns do not kill people, people use guns to kill people. That’s logical.
    You know, you leftists keep telling us the right is where stupidity lives, yet this is the most inane, irrational stance one could take. Critical thinking is foreign to progressives.
    Society is not to blame for these killings, the killers are.

    “Guns do not kill people, people use guns to kill people. That’s logical.”

    Also logical is that the bullet coming out of the gun does the killing. What’s the problem with reducing the ability to fire so many bullets in such a short time?

    The problem is that people can be attacked by groups of other people, necessitating the higher fire rate. Gangs and riots come to mind, but there are other scenarios to consider as well.

    “…but there other scenarios to consider as well.”
    Yes, like paranoia.

    When a ’toon is carried to far into the absurd, the point is lost in the absurdity.

    Oddly, the only examples of that are the massacres in Newtown, Aurora, VT, etcetera.

    People, and children, were attacked by nuts with guns that fire large numbers of rounds so easily.

    History shows your logic is up-side-down. More guns and bigger clips are the problem along with uncle ronnie raygun shuttering our mental health system.

    @mikefive Home, Mike, by definition a cartoon is humor carried to the absurd. If you don’t carry humor to the absurd, you’re not really drawing a cartoon. Or at least not a satirical one.

    @Ms. Ima I support the Second Amendment. I don’t trust the government to be the only people who own weapons. That said, you are selectively referencing the incident in China. Yes, a nutcase stabbed 22 students in China. But they all lived. That’s the difference. No one wants to be stabbed, but it sure beats being shot by an AR 15 assault rifle.

    Look, you want logical, I’ll give you logical. Don’t ban things that look like military weapons, it’s not doing much at all. Instead, change the permitted technical specifications for civilian guns. For rifles, three shots and a pause of 20 seconds before it can fire again. Fine for hunters, not very good for plastering a crowd. Require reregistration every five years, with live fire testing required to check that 20 second delay. This has already been done, when automatic weapons were banned, all the way back in the 30’s. You can’t own a tommy gun, but you can own things that LOOK like a thompson but don’t fire like a full blown thompson. It’s a legal matter than has passed the test of time, can’t be attacked by the SCOTUS, preserves the right to own firearms, and damages nobody but mass murderers.

    @HOWGOZIT I don’t know, probably in the same place where your politeness is.

    @ansonia For those of us like me, who lived in big cities during the 1980s, we remember exactly what Reagan did. No, he didn’t shatter the mental health system, he simply slashed its budget to the point where they could no longer afford to operate. The result was that they turned thousands of homeless people loose into the streets, some of whom were mentally ill, some of whom did violence to others, but mostly just simply faded away. Reagan was a murderer. Pure and simple.

    Crazy or not, a knife is harder to kill with than a gun. It just is.
    All those Chinese kids lived, unlike the CT and VA kids. If that guy in CT had only a knife, he probably would never have even made it into the school. If psychos only had knives, these incidents would end a lot differently than CT did.

    @Ms. Ima

    “I haven’t seen the anti-gun nuts-nuts post this:
    …[China school stabbing].”


    Are you kidding? This has been posted a thousand times, since Day One. The thing is, the pro-gun side ignores the result “NOBODY DIED” and the anti-gun side emphasiszes it (which is probably why you’ve blocked your memories of them).
