  •  Guns are just "objects"... (2+ / 0-)

    I've read a few comments along these lines recently posted in defense of guns  (paraphrasing) :

    The gun didn't kill the toddler. A gun is just an object. Bad parenting (or some other excuse) killed the toddler.  
    I have to say, a gun is just an object in the same way that plutonium is just an element.

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
