    Because that seems to working out so well lately.

    I would really like one of these knuckledragging, right-wing idiots to explain to the rest of us why their right to own a gun is more important than the right of 20 first-graders to live.

    Aren't they the "sanctity of life" party?

        try eating soup without a spoon. Or driving a nail without a hammer. Or chopping down a tree without a chainsaw, etc.

        Sure, you don't need it, but tools make jobs easier. That's why we have them in the first place: to make a task easier.

        Guns are tools. You certainly can be violent without one, but it's indisputable that guns are extremely effective tools, well-suited to their function.
