    Let's be realistic about gun control

    There is a sadness in the loss of life in the recent shooting in Connecticut.

    However, Vice President Joe Biden, who is supposed to set thecourse forgun control,said, "Even if we can only save one life, we have to take action."

    I suppose we should outlaw bathtubs, swimming pools, chairs, bedsand other similar killing machines and get all the cars off the road.

    Really, let's approach this issue with a little realism.

    LOL, at the last sentence:

    After saying:

      When bathtubs, pools, chairs, and beds fail and kill people (especially children), even one or two, the dangerous items are taken off the market and those already sold are recalled at the manufacturer's expense. Obviously, guns are not.

      Then again, the difference between those things and guns is that guns kill people when they are used for their designed purpose.  Really, comparing guns to anything is apples to oranges, but it's one of the most popular fallacious excuses we hear on the matter.

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
