    The anti-gun echo chamber here doesn't really deserve more than the effort I spent on that card.

    And there's no need for a free space - I just didn't feel like slogging through the time needed to expand that thing out to encompass just about all the different arguments the anti folks toss around... Which would have ended up with maybe a nine-square grid.

    And none of them would end up putting a dent in deaths, because you never address the fact that the fault lies in US ourselves.

    I just got done listening to an account of the german / russian front of ww2, where things were done on both sides that were in many ways worse than the concentration camps, where the single 2.5 month battle of stalingrad had more russian or german casualties then the usa sustained in the entire war. It wasn't the guns that caused that suffering, the fault lies in people. Taking away the guns didn't stop the suffering and death, it just changed the method from a shot to the head to getting sprayed with water to freeze on the ground, not to mention the effects of the 2-plus year long siege of leningrad where relatively few died of "gun violence" but instead starved and were eaten after death.

    The fault lies not with the contents of the hand, but with the contents of the heart.

    You can either zen meditate on that or call out a square on your own gunho card. Me, I've got some anime to watch. Ciao.

      But once again, the point was completely missed.

      A NINE square grid could have been very funny, if you had taken the effort to actually do more research than simply repeating the same joke with very minor modifications, as you did with your six.

      C'mon man!  Don't concede a valuable tool!  Humor works, if you're willing to put in a little work!

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.
