    In the past two weeks, two separate colleges experienced attacks on students and others either at the college campus or at a college activity. Where are the calls to ban "cars" or "knives?" Would you say that guns, as primary weapons of choice in mass killings and one on one murders, are over exaggerated? Think about this! Even if guns were taken off the streets, there would be many other ways to kill groups of people.

    Once again, it isn't the weapon that is used to murder someone with that is at fault; but rather the person who chose to harm others and NOT the weapon used to cause others harm or death!

    KNIFE attack - http://www.aol.com/article/2015/11/04/students-stabbed-at-uc-merced-campus-suspect-killed/21258933/?icid=maing-grid7|htmlws-main-bb|dl2|sec1_lnk3&pLid=-48341451

    Univ. of Oklahoma accident was on purpose - http://espn.go.com/college-football...lahoma-state-homecoming-parade-crash-killed-4

    Again, where is the outrage? Where are all the "Gun control" pundits and hawks? Why is Obama so strangely quiet?

    Guns simplify the ability to kill someone. It's fairly easy to shoot someone with a handgun from 10-15 feet away. With a rifle you can be very far away. You can even do it without the person knowing you are attempting to kill them. Not so with knives or cars.

    I hope I've answered your question and I sincerely hope I don't see you asking it again. Bookmark this post, OK?

    Oh my goodness. Did the big bad cyber bug leap off your screen and force you to read this post? Did the cyber bug twist your arm and force you to respond?

    That would be the only way I can see a person like yourself acting the "victim" and hoping that mean old cyber bug doesn't take you captive and force you to answer my threads.Sorry you felt FORCED, that is a terrible way to answer any question EW&F.t

    No rebuttal. Typical. And I see you called me Earth Wind and Fire?

    (Where's that "OLD" rating button. Oh yeah.)
