    BS you admitted owning a gun with the sole intent to use it to kill.
    Most people have no such intent and the gun cant shoot itself so have fun flailing around with some more lawyer analogies that frankly just suck and exist only for the sake of argument.

    Excuse me, but I admitted that I own a gun which is an item designed to kill.

    And, yes, if someone where to invade my home and attack me or my family, I would use it for that intended purpose.

    I was responding to the purpose that a gun exists and it is designed for one and only one purpose and that is to explode a projectile through a living thing to make its existence incompatible with life. While it may be used for sports that simulate that purpose, that is its sole purpose.

    So stop flailing around with your BS drive-bys.

    and you are completely 100percent wrong. A gun isnt animate. It exists as its owner wishes. If you dont want to explode a projectile through a living thing, then dont. Simple as that.
    Too bad you cant enjoy the range without the bloodlust.
    But keep flailing away.

    Many inanimate objects can be used to kill, if the owner wishes to use it for that purpose.

    No, I'm not. But your argument pretty much coleuses with what fast six is saying...if an inherently deadly weapon is meant by you to hold down paper on a windy day than all it is is a paperweight. Sorry, I don't buy that.

    And it's not even the gun that kills people, it's the bullet. Ipso facto, guns are not designed for killing, bullets are. But wait, it's not really the bullet that kills people, it's the injuries the bullet causes. In this whole equation guns are not dangerous at all, injuries are. In other words, if someone points a gun at you, there's nothing to worry about. It's just a piece of sporting equipment - you wouldn't worry if someone pointed a basketball at you, would you?

    True, but firearms appear be the weapon of choice. Although the data in the graph is several years old, the ratios are probably still the same.

    You killers would be really upset if you had to buy your gun in Huntsville and ammo in Mobile. What an inconvenience. So much killing to do in so little time.

    So you are saying you extract an explicit extraction of ownership in "keep" from the second amendment?

    I mean what is the main way people have kept ("keep") their guns? You think ownership is not?

    If so...WOW!

    If there were two gun shops in Alabama, I imagine 2 things would happen. 1. Those gun stores would be super busy. 2. Some enterprising person would figure out a way to open a gun store and get in on the business.

    Why anyone thinks having a doctor perform outpatient surgery and not have admitting privileges at a local hospital is no big deal is beyond me.

    Disagree Nana (no rating "ding" from me though). You know the saying. Outlaw guns (or make very difficult to get) and only outlaws will have them.

    Agree.

    On a side note, as for the mother, if you are "mature" enough to determine the fate of another life you are "mature" enough to take care of yourself. No welfare.

    You have to consider that at the time the constitution was written, the militia was basically all men of age capable and willing to defend the country from threats both internal and external. It was and is, essentially, the last line of defense and essentially means that the people can defend themselves individually and as a group from threats when the government cannot. The founders were very cognizant of the fact that the government could be a threat and that the people had a right to have weapons that were not under the control of the government. Implicit in this is that if the government does not control/own the people's arms, then someone must and that someone is the people. The 2a charges the government with the responsibility of "regulating" or training the militia, which is a responsibility that the state abandoned long ago under the guise of forming the national guard. That does not, however, relieve the people of their right to keep and bear non government controlled arms.

    So hospitals not killing humans is a consequence?
    And here I thought that hospitals existed to save lives, not terminate them.

    Consequence? Hardly.

    What % of those 10,096 killings in 2007 were gang related murders? What % were committed by a rifle? Those would be informative #s.

    People asserting the need for greater "gun control" really need to address this sort of behavior, problem ... not limit access to "guns" by rational, responsible law-abiding taxpaying citizens:

    This is why reasonable people need easy access to weapons:
