Suppose someone described as above intervened after the Newtown shooter had killed 10 got in a firefight with him and accidentally killed 2 children before downing the shooter. You seem to be maintaining that that would be a bad outcome whereas I would view it as 8 children saved at the cost of two. People who reason as you do seem to view the real goal as minimizing the damage the intervening party rather than minimizing the overall body count.

The math works for me. Your math seems to be based on making sure the intervening party has no blood on his hands rather than reducing the total body count.

What is your reasoning?

It saves the intervening party from a public hearing?

I'm reading this link and reviewing the footnote links as I do, I'm not done yet, but I click on one of the footnote links and it sent me to the article I'm reading, LOL (that was funny, it reminded me of the bible referring to itself for proof.) LOL

OK, back to reading....

Have you every heard the term "Data Mining"?

You start with the conclusion you want and then go find some supporting data.

Well this is a good example of how to do it.

Damn my eyes hurt.

"When the Framers penned "the right to bear arms" their point of reference was a single shot musket; not a 100 round auto-loading assault rifle."

Or a 3000 round/min helicopter mounted gatling gun.....

I would laugh but your lack of knowledge about the Framers of the Constitution and the history of your own country is disheartening and saddens me.

You're right, they were fucking idiots, if only they had had the Mayan calender all would be right with the world.


They may have realized that the conditions in the future would change, and decided to leave behind a living document that could be changed if need be.

Which is exactly what they did.

If you don't like the First Amendment change it, a national religion sounds wonderful.

I doubt it, I'm old and set in my ways.

The only advice I can offer is don't be sensitive or take things personally.

If I change my picture will that make you feel less concerned?

There you go, I changed the picture.

And don't worry, I limit myself to ONLY 10 high-capacity magazines per gun, I ain't one o' those funking gun nuts for doG's sake. :)

I would never kill Bambi, if I want meat I go to the market.

Bambi no, bossy yes.

Way to demonstrate self-control Gregg. ;^)
