  •  your argument is like an abstinence only (10+ / 0-)

    argument.

    See, I would say teach kids about safer sex and STDs and contraception and family planning because IF they are going to have sex, we want them well educated to avoid the mistakes.

    The abstinence only people believe that banning any discussion about it will prevent it.

    Here I'm assuming that we aren't going to see a repeal of the 2nd amendment (which is sort of like the abstinence argument in terms of the black/white nature of it) so IF guns are not going to be declared illegal, what can we do to make gun violence as rare as possible.

    And you just keep screaming "ABSTINENCE!" and I;m just scratching my head saying, "well, that's not likely. it's about as likely a strategy as teaching abstinence in our schools in lieu of sex ed." And just about as effective.

    Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I will tell you what you believe. h/t MeteorBlades
