  •  No, I'm not theorizing anything so stupid. See (0+ / 0-)

    people like me just emote; we don't think rationally, so I'm sure we're incapable of theorizing about anything.

    Fortunately, I don't have to explain things to "the rest" of you, since the vast majority of people get it without it being explained to them.  Since you don't, I'll explain.

    Laws won't ever stop everybody from everything and we're going to have murders, rapes, theft, arson, and a whole lot of things going on regardless of how many laws there are or what the penalties are.  

    However, laws stop some people doing things just by their existence.  And then they stop other people from doing things through less direct means.  Some people will bring a gun to school just because they can; others will bring a gun to school to kill someone.  A law against doing so will tell us the difference between the two.  If bringing a gun to school is illegal and you see someone walking into a school with a gun, you immediately know they're a criminal and you call the cops; if it's not illegal, why would you call the cops?  And if you did, what do you think they would or could do about it?

    There are many ways making something illegal makes it less likely to happen.  It doesn't nor will it ever mean there's no one out there who will be evil enough to do it anyway.  But you use a little common sense and make it illegal BECAUSE IT'S FUCKING WRONG.  In and of itself wrong.

    You're the one who is quite totally and completely incapable of separating emotion from rational thought.  You're so fixated on guns and gun rights, you're incapable of thinking about human beings.  You're fixation with guns is much more important to you than other human beings.  And you're so emotional, you can't see it for a second.  So don't bother talking to me about "emoting".  I couldn't begin to keep up with you in that department.
