    Wouldn’t it be the gop blaming him? And pretty sure I read it was toddlers shooting others that was at higher rate, but I guess both is possible.

    “Could you show one instance where a gun made an independent decision and shot someone on it’s own?”

    Conservative Second-Amendment proponent: “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”

    Me: “Fast and Furious.”

    Conservative Second-Amendment proponent: “Oh, THOSE guns killed people.”

    You’re welcome.

    “@Radish

    The parents of those toddlers did not belong to or take safety classes from the NRA.
    Could you show one instance where a gun made an independent decision and shot someone on it’s own? People without NRA common sense kill people, not guns."

    actually a sheriff’s deputy toddler killed with his dad’s gun. guess the deputy wasn’t a member of the NRA or took gun safety seriously.

    what I find most interesting is that so long as you have a way to rationalize the gun deaths as being caused by “lesser human beings” it seems that you believe they don’t count.

    sorry to feed the trolls.

    The question of how many of those toddler gun deaths occurred in homes where there was gun training, NRA or otherwise is a good one. A little research shows that some fit lma’s stereotype, but many do not. I found a couple other cases of law enforcement guns getting into the hands of children & many of the stories sound like homes of people that are gun enthusiasts who took their kids to the range & thought they taught proper gun safety.

    Anyone with common sense should realize that kids don’t think through the consequences of their actions. It’s their very nature to sometimes be impulsive & do things like trying to haul themselves up on a table holding a heavy TV or playing around with guns despite being told, “It’s not a toy.”

    I wonder how many of the gun rights supporters would be ok with requiring basic safety training for all gun owners?

    @Radish

    So it is the parents fault for that.

    Terrorists in their own country can never be defending their homeland from foreign invaders, I mean liberators are always right. (As long as they are the most powerful nation on earth. Where the UN and any other country can’t touch the USA on it or anything.)

    @Uncle Joe

    The younger they are the less they have the ability to think on our level.

    Maybe we should outlaw vending machines since more Americans are killed by them each year than by terrorists? But seriously, while I do have problems with the drone program, I would rather use them than send our military on suicide missions, or rely on the Pakistani military to hunt down the terrorists they sponsor.

    The phrase “common sense” is overused on all sides, especially in the gun debates. “Common sense” does not mean “thinking exactly like me.” If one’s opinion were common sense, then we’d all think the same way.

    Some examples of “common sense” are,
    Water quenches thirst. Rock hurts head. Fire burns skin.

    “Common sense” isn’t common. And worse, NOT ALWAYS TRUE exs:
    “rock hurts head” well, there are ancient Egyptian “pillows” made out of rock that are in museums for public viewing pleasure right now.
    Some chemicals ignite with such a low flash points that they’re harmless to our skin, used in hollywood for special effects pre-CGI.
    and don’t get me started on water and electrolites…..
