  •  Cars, cords/rope, asprin/medicine, water, (6+ / 0-)

    and electricity.  All useful and necessary for modern life.  All have many uses and applications.

    Not so for guns.  They were invented and created for one reason and one reason only.

    To kill.

      automobile accidents were benefiting from the use of a vehicle (e.g. to get to school or for the parents to work/buy food and bring it home), I would like to know how many of the 9,100 plus children under 18 that are shot each year (or the 1,440 that die every year) got any benefit from these firearms? (at least before these ended their lives)

    •  Not necessary at all. (0+ / 0-)

      Not cars, not cords/rope, not aspirin/medicine, not pools/tubs.

      And who are you to decide what is 'useful'?

      Let's just be honest.
      The real issue is that these are all examples of things that you use.
      And as far as 'conuiero' is concerned, if she doesn't use it, it is perfectly justifiable to take it away from somebody else, even including parts of the Bill of Rights, even including the well-being of the party.

      I'm certain that this 'insightful' viewpoint will get every bit as much respect & thanks as it deserves from the people, from this nation & from the Democratic party as it deserves in 2014.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      •  So you are choosing to be obtuse (0+ / 0-)

        rather than concede the point.

        Shows how strong your arguments are.

        •  What exactly am I being 'obtuse' about? (0+ / 0-)

          And when it comes to 'strength of argument', just look to Colorado.

          Historically unprecedented, Democratic district, district that voted for Obama by 19 points, & $3,500,000 couldn't even save your loser of an argument.

          Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

          •  So is that your "go to" response to everything? (0+ / 0-)

            "hmmmm...I have no argument, everyone keeps shooting everything I say down, what kind of a comeback can I use?  Oh, I know!  COLORADO!"

            As to your obtuseness, go ahead an poll 100 people on the usefulness of things like cars, water and medicine, we'll see how many people consider these things useful in their everyday life.  Yet you can't even admit that.

            Guns were conceived and designed to kill.  All those other things were not.

            Look, Colorado!
