Things That Make You Go "Hmmmmm..."

1967. Actress Jayne Mansfield is killed when her car runs under the rear end of a tractor trailer. Since then, all tractor trailors have a DOT bar on the rear end to keep cars from going under them.

1972. Seven people die when Tylenol packaging was tampered with. Since then, it takes a PhD, channel lock and a sharp object to get into a bottle of pills.

1995. A bombing using a certain kind of fertilizer, solution grade ammonium nitrate, kills 168 people. Since then, the government has imposed severe and strict regulations about the purchasing of that fertilizer.

2001. 1 person attempted to blow up a plane with a (unarmed) shoe bomb. Since then hundreds of millions of air travelers have to take off their shoes for scanning before being allowed to board.

Since 1968. 1,516,863 have died from guns on America soil. One million, five hundred sixteen thousand, eight hundred sixty-three. Gun violence kills an average of two people every day. The government can't come up with a solution to this problem except "prayers and thoughts."

Hmmmmm.
Thanks from RNG, catus felis, Camelot and 2 others

In other words you are sick of me pointing our your weak, emotional "arguments" so you are going to retreat into your echo chamber where you only have to communicate w/ people who agree w/ you.

Sounds about right.

Good luck w/ that.
Thanks from guy39 and justoneman

One's constituationally protected. But hey, keep crying about the dead kids if you think it will help. It won't, and you know an amendment to repeal the 2nd will never happen. But that's ok. It's not really about guns, is it?
Thanks from Sabcat

I can't think of a single constitutional right that doesn't have addendums and caveats.

Here's the thing, stupid people love the Second Amendment.
But it's not going to last forever.
Because it's stupid.
Sooner or later, it goes away.

Keep telling yourself that. You know as well as I do how wrong that is.
