I've been keeping a disbelieving eye on social media, trying to gauge people's response to criticism for the craziness of our gun laws--Joe Sixpack being able to buy an assault rifle, when the only possible need for one is to wage war. And I've seen the same old lame excuses for why we need right to own one. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people!" Yes they do, but shouldn't we limit how many people can be blown away, before the nut-job can be stopped? "Rocks can kill people too, should we ban rocks too?" Also true, but are you that blind and unfeeling? 


A, you can't kill several people before somebody caves in your head, and B, you can't buy an automatic rock thrower, and C, it doesn't even correlate. Isn't it just common sense to try to limit the carnage some wack-job can wreak on society? Oh, that's right, I guess since it would just be the first step toward the elimination of all weapons, we shouldn't do a damn thing? NOW I see it, the reason for your attitude!
