Yeah that arson angle has gotta be a joke.

I mean, it's gotta be.

A school with a sprinkler system?

Sooner or later we the people are going to gut the2nd amendment. We're going to have to do it because free market selfishness is never going to self-regulate.

Here is a thought.
Rather than ban guns, tax the sh#t out of them.
Income tax in America was instituted to allow Prohibition to be enacted. It was to be an alternative revenue source to make up for the loss of the enormous taxes generated by the booze biz in America. Prohibition failed but hey we still pay taxes. So lets tax guns and ammo to a point where we are generating loads of surplus revenue. Sure you can have all the guns and ammo you want and thanks for the new schools, hiways and infrastructure.
Not that is a win/win situation. Who knows in this gun nutter nation maybe we can raise enough tax monies to eliminate income tax entirely. Now the 1% can get on board.


Edited to add; Tax the weapons industry at the point of production like they used to do with booze. Let the manufacturers pass the costs to the consumer.

I like it Philo. A new-gun and per-bullet tax exactly like a new-route and per-piton tax. Because we know that, like climbers, gun owners are not going to change their behavior until forced.

Interesting logic. You should probably take the tire iron and jack out of your car so you don't have to live in fear of getting a flat.

You don't seem to be advocating carrying a gun in a safe place where you can go and get it when needed. With your logic you should carry the jack and tire iron strapped to your side.

Banks, what is your address in Santa Monica?
Predators would like to know where the easiest prey is.

Ron, where in Utah do you live so predators know to shoot you in the back instead of confronting you?


Edit,

Escalating the use of firearms comes with different tactics. Should we up it to the point where the best tactic is to shoot first, from either side?

And climbing ropes make it more likely you'll fall.

I'd agree. Many more falls roped up as opposed to unroped falls.

Bruce...They did the tax thing with cigarettes here in california to discourage smoking...Not sure if it's working as i read smoking among teens was on the rise but it's a good idea to tax the hell out of it...unless you are a responsible gun owner...I'm off to hunt elk with Ron. .It's .177 season in northern Nevada...

So you're OK with kids being killed at school, as long as the government gets a taste of the financial action?

You worship the government worse than those fundamentalist Pentacostal snake-handlers worship Jesus. Pray to Washington to cure what ails you. If that doesn't work, just pray more and pray harder to Washington.

If deer were made of nicely marbled Ribeye or Porterhouse, I'd make it a point to take my limit every year.

If it's lean, tough meat I'm looking for, I'll pick up some cheap carne asada at Chuy's Carniceria.

Seems that 'twould be difficult to thumb one's own nose at one-self. Sorta like the sound of one hand clapping, I 'spose.


Speaking of Hasselhoff, he had better watch out for trophy hunters seeking that luxurious man-pelt

The idea of culling the biggest and the best is abomination. It's like a 14 lb cheeseburger.

Hunting? Really?

Guns are the tool. And the tool is not going to disappear from society.

How about we ask why this is happening, and happening so often, and start dealing with the root cause and the symptoms?

Why do we ignore signs and symptoms of mental illness and say that nothing can be done until a person is a "threat to themselves or others"?

I've noticed that the biggest critics of hunting seem to know the least about it.

I haven't hunted in years, but still eat meat, a lot of chicken, but still some red meat.
Anybody that is a carnivore has no business putting down hunting. It is an efficient way to obtain protein, a challenging sport, and carries on an American tradition of self reliance.
