    but is completely irrelevant to the point I was making

    •  Not really. (0+ / 0-)

      In order to obtain a gun in a state with laws which would not allow you to have one, you'd have to take risks in order to get one -- well, if it weren't for the gun-show loopholes that would let a convicted felon walk into any gun show and walked out armed.  While this isn't much of a deterrent for someone who's going to go out on a suicide mission, it raises the bar for other, less-planed-out criminality.  (Also, frankly, there's just not much that can be done, period, to stop a determined person from killing a lot of people.  I can think of a number of ways to do so that don't involve firearms -- but they're all more logistically difficult to pull off, which is a good thing.)

        The point I was making was concerning LOGIC. I used a common expression of the wingnut/ gun rights crowd to show the discrepancy between that phrase and their mental gymnastics concerning abortion. The post was not about guns, their availibiliity or the risks involved with them. The point was about LOGIC, LOGIC, and LOGIC.
