Uwe Von Schamann's Bastard Son
Reading through the posts, i see a theme developing. The characters that decried the US for not supporting a UN treaty modeled after our own ADA laws are the same one crying for a new weapons ban. They acknowledge it won't do anything, but apparently the symbolism will stop a deranged psycopath from going off, or at least mollify their consciousness.
Lets be clear.....any law that takes a legal weapon from a legal owner is not going to be symbolic. And since everyone acknowledges that a total arms ban is not feasible and nothing short of one will reduce the odds of these monstrous acts it's all pissing in the wind.
Until someone comes up with something better than taking away all the guns, people should be allowed to have the same types of weapons the police carry, but not military. (I know how to build a grenade launcher and a flamethrower if anyone wants to know though) Maybe we should find a better way to deal with the criminals....stop treating the symptoms and go after the disease
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
