Re: The 1% are Parasites

How is this biased? By definition, people who produce nothing are parasites. The 1% largely profits from owning something or from moving decimal points from one place to another. There is a need for a financial sector to provide working capital, but [more]

1) You cannot ban hunting.

Even in tranquil Japan, tightly regulated hunting and target shooting are allowed for licensed gun owners. There were 11 gun murders there in 2008. The old joke is that the police raided a Yakuza stronghold [more]

I think they should get rid of the seatbelt laws.

Re: Guns keeping owners safer?

The reason drugs and alcohol should be legal is because you can't go on a killing spree with either one. Has anyone ever been murdered by forced alcohol poisoning?

You can't get rid of all of the guns, idiot - I can make a fully functional firearm from commonly available hardware store parts.

Re: American: The Culture of the Gun

the Bible being replaced

Wow. Fascinating story. I guess that proves that the study demonstrating the danger of a gun in the home is false. I'll bet you won't get trapped in a car by wearing one of those dangerous seatbelts either. Everyone knows a guy who would have died [more]
