What about throwing knives, other such knives,axes,and swords? The ones I have were not created for any purpose but defense.

The reason I ask is it seems preception of what is dangerous changes when you speak of knives or guns, do you feel that is true?

Quoting cjsbmom:

 I get so tired of this old argument. Cars were not made with the intention of killing people and animals. Guns were. End of story.

Quoting MiddleAgeMess:

There was an 86 car pileup where I live yesterday, one lady was killed & they had to perform CPR on a child, should we ban cars? It's easier to get a drivers license than a CCP after all.

Quoting Joqui:


This is not like the other school shootings.


Apparently two guys were fighting both pulled out guns. 3 people were hurt, one of the shooters got away


 This situation was made easier by Texas' lax gun laws. Everyone can own a gun, and you can carry concealed without too much effort legally. This is what happens when everyone is armed, and then they lose their tempers.


 


Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.

It is my understanding they always assume both the same way. Both of them are potential perpetrators.

Quoting SweetChild63:

So you've got two people shooting at each other. Cops roll up... how do they decide who is the good guy and who is the bad guy?

Already told her that and she came up with another excuse, so I gave up.

And people don't want stricter gun control huh? Many in Texas, where guns like a common household item.

 Anything can be made dangerous in the wrong hands, even a pencil. You just hear more about guns because they seem to be the weapon of choice when crimes are committed.
