  •  Another one: "Guns make a polite society" (0+ / 0-)

    another BS argument.  If everyone carries guns, everyone will be polite because you never know who will pull and shoot (back).

    Guns make a scared society.

    I don't want a society scared into politeness.  I would rather have a rude society.  I don't want to have to carry a gun to have a polite conversation.  I don't want to be scared.  

    So I won't.  I won't carry a gun.  I won't force someone else to be "polite."  

    Violence in many instances is caused by fear, or greed.  In these situations, it is caused by mental illness.  

    More guns won't solve any of those problems.

    After the Republicans burn down the world, they will prove the Democrats did it.
