    For direct murder of a large number of conscious people?  Not so much.  Another analogy failure.

      González tried to fight back into the club but was ejected by the bouncer. He was heard to scream drunken threats in the process. González had recently lost his job at a lamp factory, was impoverished, and had virtually no companions.[citation needed] González returned to the establishment with a plastic container of gasoline. He spread the fuel on a staircase, the only access into the club, and then ignited the gasoline.[citation needed]

      The policy difference is that gasoline has much better known lawful uses.

      1: How many inanimate objects are capable of killing lots and lots of kids, all at once?
      Answer, three if you count the match, container and gas.
      2: How are these objects regulated, typically?
      Answer, Not at all.
      Examples will include dangerous machinery, such as threshing machines, and also weapons of mass destruction. How many of these can you buy at Wal*Mart?
      Answer, I can buy the container and the matches at WalMart and the gas at their stations.

      If you have to do contortions to come up with "Fail" you aren't being honest.

        Your ideas on gun control include fantasies of burning children alive? Really?

        I'm not going to debate this one at all. You just go have a nice day.

          now you want it to be my idea. I've been around these parts long enough to know a dishonest debater when I see one.
