    •  As though those are the only two options. (8+ / 0-)

      Have a gun, or get beaten to death.

      Well, sure, Mr. LaPierre!!  Sign me up, then!  That's an obvious decision, right there, and I for one am certainly not in favor of women being beaten to death.  So please, let me buy a gun from that man who has a truck in a gun show parking lot without anyone snooping into my public arrest record.

      It's for the women.

      When extra-terrestrial beings make their first appearance on our planet, and ask for representatives of our species to best exemplify humanity, I'm sending a nurse, a librarian, and a firefighter.

      I recommend you read that entire thread.  It contains first hand testimony of the real cost guns have on our society.

        The big change was getting the lead out of gasoline.

        I want to reduce societal violence and crime.  Doing what feels good and follows common sense may not be effective.  We have everything we need to drastically reduce crime.  

        Get the Lead out.  End the war on some drugs.

        •  Check this out. It's not random. (0+ / 0-)

          The result holds up when you do cross-national studies, studies across neighborhoods in a single city, and supposedly even one longitudinal study.

          It may turn out to be wrong but is way better founded than most medical news in the popular press.
