They've tried this tactic with terrorism, drugs, and alcohol. It doesn't work.

As far as the violence on TV and games the left laughed and mocked the conservatives that questioned these things years ago.
That is your opinion and you have a right to it. We don't see eye to eye on that one.

Well duh, of course not.


We have to ban video games too.

So the answer is just let everyone have a gun? Ok

Oversimplifying it, but, "Yes".

I don't think a majority of people should be permitted to drive, but they are. Cars aren't designed to kill but they do an admirable job of the task.

What TV shows and video games was Andrew Kehoe a fan of?

Well since he died in 1927 probably not many but they may just be your point. =)

Mr. Kehoe was an animal abuser, all the signs were there.

I'm not sure why anyone needs to buy assault weapons such as the AR-15 (which I believe was once federally banned), and I don't know anyone should be allowed to sell/buy ammunition over the Internet.
Indulge me on the last paragraph please.
Without Googling, tell me what an "assault rifle is" and why should it be banned?
And since I can go buy all the .223 I want at Wal Mart, why should I not get it off the internet?

Please honestly consider if this was true at this moment. At 16, everyone gets a sidearm. Honestly just think about that right now and look around you, I get nervous. It would be a more fearful society.

I don't get it either. Why bother with any laws at all then? Why are we wasting time with such foolishness?

Why are you picking 16? I'd have gone with 21.

Surely only those with a chronically poor aim would be fearful?

Fuq 'em.

I believe he choose 16 because the original point was about drivers.
